    So far from what I can see-
    1) A little more HP
    2) Better FEL Joystick erganomics (Me likey)
    3) Hood handle
    4) BH Work light
    5) Better Seat
    6) cast Backhoe hub (instead of welded)
    7) Smaller BH stabilizer pads

    No, it looks like it comes out of the right side of the tractor and has a longer jostick handle for easier reach.

    It also looks like the hoses for the FEL from the rear have been re-routed as there is no longer a grey metal shield on the left side. That means you can now get on or off the tractor from the left and or the right side-me likey.

    I just compared both spec sheets and I see no difference.
    Length, height, width, ground clearance, horsepower(engine and pto), lift capacity on 3pt. and loader all are identical. Even down to the same DL100 loader.
    It has the Tier 4 compliant engine, I would be interested to see the changes made there.

    But then again, not much sense in changing something that works very well the way it is.

    Will have to see what the price of the hood handle is and how it's installed. If it's too much I'll just have to make one. Another post for the mod thread.
