    Default First use of my new BX1860

    I used my new BX1860 today for the first time. How pleased I was!

    It's outfitted with a hydraulic blade and rear wheel chains. I never slipped once and was able to push 6 inches of snow UP the driveway. The power steering allowed me to turn the tractor on a dime. I never came close to using all the power the tractor has availalble.

    I had been using an old Wheelhorse 312-8 (God bless it!) with chains that had really served me well for 22 years, however, the kubota was really impressive. I even took it out of 4WD for a trip up the driveway and through the snow and never once slipped.

    When I got my 1860, lots of folks said I'd wish I'd gotten a bigger one--even the fellow who delivered it from the dealer said so. It ain't happened yet!
