Stopped by my dealer yesterday and took a look at the new 2012 GC series tractors specifically the GC2410 and GC2610. First thing I noticed is that Massey went the way of kubota BX25 and the Boom cradle is now a one piece cast steel (I think its steel) instead of the welded like mine and the stabilizar arms are smaller and the shoes are alot smaller with no option for a rubber pad. It looks like the BH is a little cheaper made and I wonder why? I also wonder if there will be any difference in reliability\performance in the long run.
