    The price to install the pounder was more then i liked so i brought everything home and will do most of the work myself. I will try to post pics later.

    Here it is on the trailer with a happy 7 year old :-) one thing i found out instantly is that the seat on this $15k Case-IH tractor is so much more comfortable then the seat in my $42,500 cabbed kubota vineyard tractor.

    really nice! I like how they did the fender extensions. they seem to appear to be able to flex a bit and that should be good when going through the roxs as to not catch on the vines and pull them. i also like how they dont have the exhaust sticking up, which to me is a must for a vineyard tractor as the exhaust can get caught in the vines. i laughed when i purchased my $7,200 z-turn as it had a MUCH more comfortable seat and came with arm rests compared to my $20,000 tractor. sometimes i wish i could switch them out as i spend more time on my tractor then i do on the z-turn.

    I agree, the fender extensions are very well done. I dropped the tractor off at my friends machine shop today and their going to build a mount for the pounder. I'm really looking forward to putting this tractor to work. I just hope it holds up as well as my new holland.

    Just picked the 45A up from the machine shop. They modified the mount for the pounder and have it installed. I still need to mount the hydraulics and mount the actual pounder to the plate. Just waiting for a hydraulic hose to dump the oil back into the tractor case so I can plumb the valves.

    Pounder is all mounted and all the hoses are hooked up except the return line which I am still waiting for. I'm really looking forward to putting this unit to work. I am really impressed with this tractor and want to see if it performs as well as I expect it to.

    Very nice setup! How many hours do you guess you'll put on this tractor in a year? Is this the only duty it will be performing?

    Im expecting to put 40-50 hours on it each year but i dont know yet. It will be used mainly for pounding as well as pulling a tedder and rake for haying. I can also see using it for weed spraying and planting as well. It is going to help take some of the strain off the 1920 and a little off the TN 65. I was putting 200-300 hours each on those two and needed some extra tractors to help out so I'm not changing as often. Quite a few pieces of my equipment either mount directly to a tractor or have electronics that i have wired up to work with a particular tractor so changing implements is a little more involved then a simple 3pt implement.
