    Do not neglect to use rear ballast to match the intended load.
    Don't use a loader as a bulldozer....they're loaders, not bulldozers and not excavators.

    There's a few to start...
    oops...I think I've done all of those so far...

    Question, though....we have a 4 in 1 bucket and I'll open it up and use the rear part of bucket similar to a dozer blade. I'm not trying to move mountains, by any means and our soil is very sandy...I'm mainly pushing along debris from the last logging episode. Is that bad?

    I'd say many of us (including me) have done at least some of the things we warn about not doing...mostly a matter of using some common sense.
    I won't recommend any of these practices (caveat: my loader manual also shows the digging procedure as others have written about) and I definitely wouldn't allow anyone using my tractor to do them (I lent out my old 670 once...watched a friend of mine really abuse it for about 2 minutes...then I chased him off the tractor).
    When one owns the tractor, and knows he'll have to pay for any damages, he'll think twice before doing anything excessive.
    My opinion, anyway...

    My father and I split the tractor together and he seems to be the one that wants to push it a little harder than I do....that might be because he has money, though :/
