    Btw, I read one of your recent posts about not pushing stumps etc with the FEL, pushing backwards with a box blade, or back-dragging with the FEL bucket angled too far down. Not sure why I read that thread again, but am glad I did and appreciate the pointers. The first chore I wanted to do was push over some stumps and smooth the driveway.

    You can push with the fel on stumps or trees as long as you are centered without any problem, It is pushing from one side that warps stuff. Also don't try to dig with the corner of the bucket or push from one side unless you are sure there isn't any immovable objects, loose stuff wont hurt. Same for lifting, don't lift from one side unless it is really light. I like to make a Y for single drop or upside down U for double drop by hooking the chain in both hooks (welded on in line with the FEL attachment points) and then either dropping the ends (inverted U) or hook one end back to the chain to form a Y so it is all center loaded or at least loaded equally from both sides.
    Box blade can be backed into loose fill for spreading without a problem. The problems happen when you hit that immovable object that you didn't know about in the loose stuff. Always best to drag not push with the box blade or straight blade. The LS loaders are pretty tough. I have dug out ponds with mine and hit big immovable rocks the stopped me in may tracks and not hurt it, but it pay to go slow when digging with the FEL if there is a possibility of hitting something. Back dragging with the FEL tipped down at a very acute angle can bend the bottom pan ( I bent mine a bit back dragging some rock and forgot there was a stump under the rocks.

    Thanks for all of the replies.

    Two of the three closest LS dealers were very interested in selling a tractor. I ended up going with the one a few miles closer, but the other dealer would have been a great person to work with also. One dealer mentioned that LS gives an additional discount for cash customers. Kioti dealer was the closest reasonable alternative and would have been good to work with, but I like the LS better. Around here Kioti has a good reputation for being hard to break. kubota dealer said he just uses an old Ford tractor and that's probable all I'd ever need too.

    Am thinking the cardboard will make a good template for cutting a piece of outdoor carpet or something for the floor. That will be easier if I get that done before it turns to dust.

    Thanks for the additional chain lifting tips Gary.

    Dog is wondering why the windows don't roll down.

    The tractor looks GREAT. Can't wait to see how it works out for you.

    Good luck.

    Thanks Brian,

    It'll look even better once there's a top/tilt kit on it!

    And even better once it gets some dirt on it! A dirty tractor is a happy tractor! That is till you wash it.

    Hi Johnny,

    Bought mine at Hirsch in West Plains. Only have 70 hours on mine, but would by the same tractor at the same place if I needed another one.

    I think it is good advice to but at the nearest dealer if they're reasonably priced and seem like they will provide service after the sale.
