    I will agree. Until I used a set of pallet forks, I had no idea how useful they are.

    JHT,

    I couldn't agree more with the pallet forks. I've got a set with a quick attach loader on my dx33.

    As for your 2nd suggestion: "take the lights of the rops". I've already got a cracked lens on mine from a tree limb.

    One question for you on your dx40. Does filling the rear tires effect the performance of the tractor any? Just wondering if this causes any noticable loss of horsepower, especially on grades. I always attach my rear blade, (an older blade built much heavier and in my opinion better than any today) but still run into stability issues using the pallet forks at full load if not on very level ground.

    After braking one of my lites ,I got smart and took off the lens ,removed the bolts ..Then turned the lites to the inside ....Everthing still works and the attack branches can't get to them ..Also looks better...I'f you pull the nut fromthe lite assy ,drill hole thru and use regular nut may have to use longer bolt ..Sure beats buying a new lite assy..Good luck .

    Nice ride. I was going to suggest that you check to make sure your doors are tall and wide enough, I've seen several posts where folks have dinged garage doors etc. with rops up. Then I read where you go sit on it in the barn so evidently you got it inside ok. Yes, by all means teach your kids how to operate it. It's better that they know rather than them trying to learn on their own while your not there. What's the car doing on it's side? Sorry dad, didn't know where the brake was My daughter goes to work and shows off bruises she got from shooting 12 guage shotgun, and all the guys think she's cool. Enjoy every moment with them.
