    Very nice. I see you have what looks like SSQA on the loader. Good choice.

    Make sure and check all the fluid levels before using it much. Something I did when my kubota was new and clean was to take digital images of all of the serial numbers and saved them in a file for future reference. Nice looking machine.

    Thanks everyone. I am real happy with the upgrade. Around 1300 more lbs lift than the DS3510. That puts
    me at about 2750 or so on the loader lift. The tractor itself is several inches larger in lenght, has larger tires
    and more room on the operator platform and with the platform higher, the center transmission hump is almost
    gone. It comes with one set of remotes. This is not the more complex DK 40 or 45. The FEL specs are the
    same tho. This has the KL402 and the DK's have the KL401. I got the 3rd function in friday. Will install it
    this week. I may be getting a hyd toplink, so want to leave the remotes clear for that.

    As for keeping busy with it. Neighbor building a garage wants me to spread out a couple of dirt loads he has
    and get rid of a valley between the garage and sand pile (septic).
    Another neighbor wants me to do his drive with my landplane and do the private drive they live on. (about 12
    families) His TC30 is in the shop. No charge of course, he has helped me out when my Fords were broke.

    I checked the fluids before I took it off the trailer when I got home incase I had to go back to the dealers with it.
    Will not be without a SSQA. Good Idea on photos of all the serial number plates...

    Take care all, starting to rain, and am itching to get some seat time. Darn weather!!!

    Had a guy here in Western PA send me a PM on another tractor forum site. He saw I had a DS3510 (had not changed the avatar yet) and wanted to know about the model tractor. He had found a used one at a dealers.
    I had him call me and when I asked him where he lives, it turns out he is 10 miles from me. I asked him if it was at a dealers I named. He said yes. I told him it was the one I traded in for my DS4510. Gave him the info on it and what a good tractor it is. I just needed more power and FEL lift. He was going up to the dealers site where it was and go look at it. The dealers daughter told him about it as she pretty much runs the other site she is at.

    Go figure that would happen. You never know about things these days....
