    Well, have over 30 hours on the 6010 now. Most of that is snow blowing. No problems at all, other than the dealer installed block heater had one fitting that vibrated loose and was weeping a few drops of coolant. A quick turn of the screwdriver fixed that though. Can't say anything bad at all about the tractor or my dealer. The service guy was more than helpful on the phone, as my closest dealer is about 275 km away.

    Anyways, some pics of the tractor and farm.

    It looks like you have R4 industrial tires with no chains. Are they fluid-filled? Do you have plow or blow any snow on hills?

    I ask because I've been looking at getting the same tractor and I've seen differing opinions on how R4's work in snow, especially on hills.

    I am glad you are enjoying the 6010. You have a very nice set up.

    I think that overall you would find that most of the complaints about R4 tires in general come from people that have under 40HP tractors. The lug patterns are much tighter than on the larger size R4 tires.

    Nice Tractor, looks like I bought mine about the same time. I am also at 30 hours, all snow removal and do not have much heat, can you tell me more about the TSB on the thermostat?? Thanks!

    Hey Eddie, when I picked mine up the dealer had load tested it and found it running cool. I think they just replaced the thermostat with a lower temp one, if memory serves.

    Very cool photos --- that's a beautiful place you've got there. That 6010 looks to be a nice machine, very capable.

    Thanks for all the comments. Also made me realize I haven't posted any pics since last year. haha. Guess I have been busy with work. This summer on July 1, also my 32 b-day, I treated myself to a day of staining the barn. I wanted it to age for a year for a little colour before I stained. Very happy with the result. Also poured the floor in the barn this summer, think it was only 12 yards or so.



    Also, see my new to me farm runner a 1998 Suburban 1500 4x4 with a vortec 350, tow package, and locking rear end. Only has 141km or 85k miles for those south of the border. Was never winter driven, could also eat off the underside, an older gentleman used it for towing his 22 ft. boat to and from cottage country. Other than his habit and backing the rear bumper into trailer hitches and trees, its in amazing shape. Not to bad on gas either for a big old beast.

    As for the 6010, it just rolled 100 hrs a few weeks back. No problems to report, other than it is hard on my wallet for always needing to buy more 3ph attachments. haha. Only real complaints to date are the front visibility when using the FEL to grade and hookup the quick attach aren't as good as my L48 Kubota. Also, the HVAC is mediocre at defrosting the windows on a cold day, AC works great. And when I say cold, I mean like -10C or more, so it's not too often. Other than that, all is good, easy to service good on fuel, nice comfy, reasonably quiet cab. I love using it to blow snow, radio and heat on, in a tshirt, haha.
