just purchased a 7040 with cab and a 15 ft woods mower. Interested in talking to other 7040 owners to compare notes

Just bought a 6800 which the 7040 replaced. I can't find anything I don't like about this tractor. How do you like the direct injection?
I had some concerns about the amount of plastic on the newer tractors. I am sure it isnt a problem with the cab.

I did find the front end to be a little light. I will be purchsing about 6 weights to put on. 50 lbs each at a buck a pound.

When I bought my blue, I was rather glad to see the extensive use of plastic. The materials used these days are very good quality and durable. The other reason was I noticed over the years the oranges and blues were plagued wth rust where the stamped parts were spot welded together and then painted. No rust now!

I was skeptical of the plastic body panels on my green machine but after living with it for three years I'm convinced. While the neighbors deal with body panel dents and repaint scrapes and rust the plastic takes a beating and bounces back without a worry.

The problem with plastic is oxidation. Once it starts to oxidize, there is no going back. You cant sand it and paint it, even armor all won't bring it back.
I have seen some blue that had been stored outside and it looked terrible.

Yep, that's a problem with plastic so you store them inside or at least cover them. With metal panels the paint oxidizes and metal rusts and the solution is the same.

My blue's 4 years old and has never been covered or stored. The year I got it they had just changed over to a deeper blue; some of the powder blues I noticed were faded. After 4 years the paint was a little oxidized after having never treated to some wax. After three applications it's fine (I had business phone number decals on it from the start that I removed. After waxing I couldn't tell where the decals had been)

They're getting smarter with plastics and using more UV inhibitors. When they use enough it probably won't be a problem anymore.

McGuier's makes a VERY good oxidation remover that worked great on the gelcoat of my Sea Ray called #49 oxidation remover and polish. I think it would work well on the plastic as well.
