    Parker, I think I'm up to 33 hrs now. I don't usually go to the dealer for standard maintenance, but I'll probably take this one in for the 50hr mark. There's a couple things that I'm gonna have looked at, including this weird clicking sound when the key is turned for the accessory or Glow Plug setting ... and it starts pretty rough so it might have something to do with the plugs.

    Overall I like it, just hoping I made the right choice by going to red.
    Sorry to hear that you are having some minor problems with it. Hopefully warranty will cover it. Are you planning on painting your grapple?

    Yeah, but I've gotta rebuild the top first. The cylinder I used was too strong and it bent a bunch of the metal and actual ripped some of it. It's sitting in the barn on saw horses now, just waiting for the temps to be a bit more reasonable out there!

    I'm sure whatever it is, it'll be covered under warranty ... just inconvenient, never had to take my LS in

    Hopefully we wont ever have to take the LS in. Our closest dealer is about 100 miles from the farm and if we had to leave it there that would be about 400 miles (there and back, there and back).

    TSO,

    Am I missing something or are there really no hydraulics on that rear blade? I was beginning to think I was the only one on here thinking one can run a rear blade with manual adjustments.

    Was sunny and 78 here yesterday, just about all the trees are blooming now, along with many flowers. Today was a bit cooler, about 73 and sunny. However.... right now the wind is howling outside because a cold front is blowing through, should be about 30 in the morning with a high of 54. The good news is it will warm back up to 68 for the weekend. Hope all of you get some warmer weather too!

    Lol, no you're right, no hydraulics on that blade yet. That's on my to do list, just haven't got around to it yet. Most of the time its not a big deal, only rarely do I need to change the angle.

    TSO, you git hit harder than we did. Hard to tell with all the drifting. I'm guessing about 4 or 5 inches here but had 2 foot drifts in the drive. I also had to deal with thawed soft ground under the snow. Appreciated my new homemade cab though even without the heater which I havent installed yet.
