    Considering that 956 is a boat tractor it looks pretty tidy , That exhaust note is bloody annoying all day long though

    Yes it is still a clean tidy machine despite its age and role in life.

    Sorry Groundcover, the picture is misleading. The green thing with "Diesel" written on is a beehive type diesel fuel tank in the background of the picture. The boat "Happy days" is a 36 foot Haines fitted witha single 85 HP Turbo diesel inboard engine.

    I welded a 2" receiver to the top of my bucket. Also made a ball holder with an 18" drop. With this setup I can precisely move my trailers anywhere I want them.

    I moved my 25' travel trailer one time with my JD 2210 - never again! Worked great except I couldn't see when backing up! I sweated the whole time! Unless I don't have to back up that is.

    I have a 3 pt receiver, and just recently bought a receiver that goes on my pallet fork frame. I moved my camper the other day with the front of my tractor.
