    Default Woo Hoo! New Montana 5740 is here.

    This little beast showed up yesterday..... [img]/forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

    Had a chance to do a little hogging and some dirt work. So far so good.

    Is it true that happy tractor drivers get bugs in their teeth?... [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    I sure like the roomy operators station, gives you the feeling that you are on a much larger machine.

    I am not sure I quite like the position of the foot throttle. Know others have gotten accustomed to it with time. I'll log a few more hours of seat time before I decide.

    View from the drivers seat. At first I wasn't sure if I would like the exhaust pipe sticking up in the air. but I like it now!!

    Had to add fuel today and I must say the fuel tank location is awesome. Sure glad I don't have to crawl up the back of the tractor or try to fuel through an opening in the hood.

    Had some fun the past couple of days and looking forward to more.

    Like you need to borrow a tractor Wallace!!

    Congrats on the purchase. In the picture of the "right side controls" it appears that the loader valve is closes to the gear selector. Is it? It may be just the way the picture is taken, I am sure MAKA could answer this question also.
