Thank you for the tip. I think by putting the loader on myself I will also learn more about the tractor so if there are problems with the loader later it will be easier to trouble shoot. It is going to be a week or two before I get it, then we are going to Disney. So it will probably be end of Jan. before I get it on. I will post pics. I asked the dealer today ( when I gave him the go ahead ) if he had a copy of the install manual so I can study up. Any more tips would be welcome. Thank you.
