    How about a heavy 4' landplane, 4'boxblade on the Cat 1 limited hitch? I have tested both of these with a 175lb helper standing on them with no problems raising to full height quickly.Attachment 269767Attachment 269768Attachment 269769

    While the Cat 0 and limited Cat I systems do work. For the difference in $$$ having more tractor, more lifting caPacity and the ability to run a log splitter from the scv Looks appealing.

    Well it is a matter of scale imo, the 3PH will handle as large an implement as a 1500 lb machine can utilize. It can manuever in places the larger tractor can't cope with. That said I agreed that a larger tractor was a better choice for the OP. I use an MX6 to mow fields with here with the 4520 but wouldn't try to mow my lawn with it. Bigger isn't always better.

    Just got a MX6 myself. Mrs B&D and the kids bought it for Father's Day.
