    We took the self leveling feature off the Case as it would hold more dirt without it.
    When using the loader for dirt work, it works just as well if not better to NOT have the self leveling feature. That is as long as you know what you're doing.

    I hate to admit it, but in my learning phase, I dumped a bit of dirt on a hood or two myself.

    When we were building our berms for our range, we had to transport the dirt up and down a few inclines especially as the heights increased and we just lost too much dirt, so we took them off; much better. You do have to watch and adjust as you travel or it will come back on your or out the front.

    Yeah if you can find a 8540 that would be nice,a 6040 would pull a small square baler no problem,my neighbor runs one. I run a 5x4 baler with the 7040,it does fine. The only thing I never liked about the 50/60/7040 is the front R1tires being so skinny. Never seen the R4's in person on one..

    Thanks everyone for the help. I've decided to go larger and pick up a Case Farmall 95. It isn't fancy and doesn't have a lot of the electronic auto features but for my use, the simpler the better. I'll be adding plenty of rear remotes!

    I'd consider that a pretty big jump, 7040 to Farmall 95!!! Is it an "A" model?? I looked at Case/IH pretty hard when I was shopping. I never found a "C" model on any lots to look at though, by what data I could find that would have been my choice. Do a write-up when you get it, I'm anxious to hear how you like it.
