    Default New 8560

    Today was my second time out on my new 8560 (4wd, w/loader) - I love it - I'm pulling a heavy duty Rhino cutter (7') - agonized over red vs. orange

    Have a smaller orange tractor - it has been a workhorse with almost no probs

    So far so good on the Mahindra - the cutter weighs about 1,850 lbs in 3 pt config - no sweat for this tractor

    Love the forward/reverse shuttle - my old tractor doesn't have this feature - makes moving dirt around MUCH easier

    I'm new to the forum, so howdy to fellow Mahindra owners

    SWhouston,
    Welcome to TBN. Will you be getting a canopy? I didn't realize trees got that tall down in Sugarland. Exactly where was the photo taken?

    We've got lots of big trees in my neighborhood, in fact the name the development is Greatwood - but the pic is from my property near Trinity, TX. Good eye!

    Almost forgot - thanks for the "Welcome" and I probably wont get a canopy due to the amount of trees/limbs I'll be working around

    I thought that photo's background looked more like my neighborhood than Sugarland.
    As for limbs and a canopy, I keep a pair of nippers behind my seat and trim limbs as I get near to them. But you can't catch everything while working the tractor hard. I caught a large limb on the canopy and bent it a little. But overall the canopy is worth it. I added work lights under the front of the canopy so I can finish that loader work past dark.
    hugs, Brandi

    Thanks for the suggestion - what canopy do you have on your unit?

    SWHouston,
    My unit? That is a funny thing to call the Big RED Beast! I don't know what brand the canopy is. It is aluminum diamond plate over insulation with a steel frame. The forward and aft work lights and temperature guage mount to the angle iron frame. It cost $349.00 back in 2007.
    hugs, Brandi
