    Default New M7040 HDC-1 with R4s

    Here is my new New M7040 HDC-1 with R4s to replace an L48. I went with the R4s as the R1s are just too agressive for what I use it for, landscape construction, farm chores, mowing, plowing, and utility work. Much bigger than a L48 which I have parked in front of it for comparison. The front tires are very large for R4s, much bigger than a L48/M59. Love the machine, going to need some getting used to having driven HST machines only for the last 8 years. Finally.....FINALLY......got myself a cab and diversifying my equipment was a big motivator for this machine. Non-TIER 4 was also a big driver. I will be posting a review of this machine in relation to a TLB (M59/L48) which is my other daily driver as the weather get going.

    Agreed on the tires, the Ag tires look pretty small on an M7040, I saw one on the dealer's lot a couple of days ago, I think foreman Etexas had bigger tires put on his last one.

    The Ag tires on my M8540 are the ones that come stock on the M9540 and look more substantial than the stock size.

    You'll love the M7040! The "switch" between HST and standard is fairly easy, but you will get confused every now and then (at least I do). I sometimes find myself sitting at a stand still and wondering why the tractor isn't moving forward - or backward as the case may be!

    I have the "standard" AG's on mine. Never thought they looked out of place, but then again my M7040 is the only one I have ever seen (I don't get out much). The one I bought was the only one on the lot!

    Actually, I looked at M7040's at another dealer before I bought mine - but I was only interested in the width of the foot print. Needed mine to be as narrow as possible...
