    No bad mouthing with either dealer. A good experience all around. I agree it's a biased video but it did have some good points and footage of interiors. Anyway…

    Well I pulled the trigger this morning on the 5083e cab and 553 loader! I deleted the radio and block heater and added the rear wiper and buddy seat. I decided to stay with the JD global attach. 2 rear remotes. Fluid filled tires. They came off a couple on their price and came up a bit on the trade so in all I'm happy. Very reasonable to work with. The paperwork is signed but it will be Monday morning for everything to be finalized.

    Thanks again for everyone's help/opinions. Ill post to a new thread pics when I take delivery. Now I need to start looking for a used cutter…

    When you say too small, do you mean the cutter or tractor? I'm looking at cutters also.

    Yeah do you mean the cutter is too small? I'm thinking an 8 ft semi or 3pt for now. I would call it medium mowing and light brush. Nothing over 1.5 inches. Then once I have my land tamed I would go up to a 12 -15 foot pull type. At least that's the plan.

    Yeah we must have been typing at same time. If your going 3pt 8ft may be best,cause weight,,mine is pull-type. If you was to get batwing first you can always move over and cut with half until you get it tamed

    We used and still have a Woods 121 10' 3PH on a Case CX80 for years and it worked fine. When we went with a heavier duty DS1260, we had to go to a pull type.
