    Nice tractor but way too clean. And you haven't even bent your bucket level indicator yet.

    I notice you still have the stock topping lift. Think about getting a hydraulic version. Makes hook ups and especially control of 3PT implements much easier. You already have at least one set of remotes. I think MtnViewRanch sells a nice kit or you could get one from your dealer.

    Excuse my ignorance but what is a topping lift? Maybe I know it as something else!

    Jargon for the connector link between the rear of your tractor and the top of the 3PT hitch on implements. Standard version is a screw type which requires getting off the tractor and twisting to lengthen or shorten. Hydraulic version is controlled from the seat with the rear remote lever. Photo shows blue colored hydraulic version on DK40.

    May I suggest stopping in at a TSC, Lowes or Home Depot and obtain a short section of round stock the same size at the factory top link holder. Bend in a vise, paint and remove the blue cloth top link holder before some damage occurs.

    While it looks like crap, the temporary blue strap has worked fine for over five years. It isn't used often as I almost always have an implement attached so it serves mostly when moving the tractor between implements.

    And a hydraulic version of that top link would run you
    $210 for the top link with a working length of 20 1/2"-30 1/2"
    $50 for the hose kit with QDs and flow restrictor
    $50 for shipping to your house.

    So for $310 your life can be even easier.
