    You make me soooo proud, ffgoo

    My first tractor too, exactly the same, grapple, forks and all.

    Thanks guys. Happy thanksgiving to all! So just curious if 2 sets of rear weights, filled rear tires and say I leave a 66" BB on the back. Do I have enough weight to do most my chores? Brush and debris doesn't weight much when using a grapple but I do have trees to get rid of and they can get heavy. LA724 loader capacity I guess determines that eh? I see pics of people with various trees they carry with various tractors but how do we really know ballpark weight of trees. I just don't want to tip or hurt my baby

    You should be okay with the box blade on the back.

    I have loaded tires and that's all, no extra weights. I'd say, load the tires, put the box blade on the back and that should be enough, IMHO. What kind of deal did you get, if you don't mind. I paid $23700 + 3rd valve, CA grapple, spear, and heavy duty forks $27300. That's the best deal i could find within 200 miles.

    Yeah just about the same. Mine was harvest return so discount for that and included hd bucket, sun canopy and 3rd electro/hydraulic. For 23,5. Still working on placing order for grapple, pallet forks, and BB from CA but that comes in around another 3k and change

    Well now that I have finished my first half day of work I am truly glad I waited and better yet listen to a lot of you. Thank you so much for the input. This is one **** of a tractor yet small and nimble as well. I bought a used tractor with 250 hrs that is slightly faded and scratched(harvest returnx2) but new LA724 loader, HD bucket with tooth bar, CA root grappler, pallet forks and Landpride bb. My back is sighing a huge relief because I got more today then would have taken me a week by hand. And of course here she is in the flesh as always.......

    Great pictures, my CFO (wife) has decided I don't need a grapple, so I will just have to settle for admiring those of others, very nice outfit.

    Mine thought that I didn't need one too. I got one anyway and now she can't believe how much work you can do with it. I say go for it, you will like it.
