    Thanks, I messed with it some today. I'm impressed how well the shuttle works. I'm pretty particular on break in period with the engine. I went thru owners manual and WSM and read their recommendation against using PTO at full engine speed and no rough use. How did you break in your engine? Do you let the engine idle 5 minutes before you turn it off to cool off the turbo?

    JC,
    Yes, I always let it cool off at idle for the turbo after working at extended periods above 2K rpm - usually Bush hogging. I kept the motor below 2K for the first 10 hours. I recommend a set forks for your loader arms. They come in very handy and are one of the most used attachments I have. Good for picking up debris and logs and a good bit cheaper than a grapple once you figure in the hydraulic kit.
