    Default Xmass came early for me this year

    Bought the 8560 with cab, I also picked up a worksaver root rake grapple. Expecting saturday delivery. Already have a brushbull 84 that I picked up in anticipation of this purchase. Attached is a pic of her on the dealer property where he handed me the keys and proceeded to set the hook. If I do get it saturday I'm going to beat down 20 acres of land that has yet to be cut this year...just what the doctor ordered.

    Congratulations - now thats a tractor!

    Fine looking machine you are getting.. Enjoy and post some more pics with the grapple too - it looks like you will be able to knock out 20A no problems with this machine.

    So the machine was delivered as promised. I was so excited I forgot to take a pic of it on the truck. Here are some other pics. Spend the day cutting new to me fields that I thought weren't cut in a year but saplings, hidden old farm equipment and mattress springs in the fields tell me the previous property owner never cut these fields at all. I worked vey slowly with the brush cutter up high and the grapple very close to the floor. The grapple save me a few times from the hidden farm equipment, logs and rocks.

    Glad you are going sloow.. a mattress with springs would be no fun in a new brush hog on a hot day!

    Glad you are enjoying the new machine - its a beauty and the grapple is impressive and it saved you by the sounds of things.

    Great unit! After about your first 10 hrs, go over all your FEL frame bolts, all your lug nuts, etc with a good impact wrench...I do mine about every 100 hrs now...you may find that the FEL frame bolts work loose reasonably quick....mine did. BobG in VA
