    Buying Advice Re: Model?

    Guessing a 7232 series or a 7272 series.

    There are 4 tractors in each series, depending on trans, and weather 4wd or 2wd. The 723x is less power than the 727x series

    Re: 4WD Front to Rear Tire Ratios

    There is no way with a mechanical driven system to eliminate ALL tire slipping between front and rear. Even on trucks, with identical ratios and identical tires, you will bind and try to slip when...

    Snow Attachments Re: snow blade vs snow pusher

    I have a L3400. Similar machine. The thing is almost unstoppable in snow with R1 tires. I would think traction wouldnt be an issue unless there is an ice pack underneath

    Re: suppose i sell my rops

    I agree with the previous post. If you do decide to sell for a few bucks, and later sell the tractor, just have the owner sign a waiver that he understands the tractor came with a ROPS that is no...

    Re: InvisibleFence brand GPS containment???

    Yea, $3k is a little higher than I was hoping. Since GPS tech is quite affordable now. A wired system is only ~$300. And a good bit of that money is wire and sender unit. So Adding a GPS device in...

    While not the quality of OEM, I have had good luck with the NWP kits from baileys. For half the price or less of OEM, The value is better than OEM.

    Re: Why no front wheel drive trucks?

    Two big reasons I can think of. Cost, and payload.

    It would cost a lot to redesign everything. And towing and payload would have to be greatly reduced. Who would want to buy a half ton with 500#...

    Re: insulation

    Lots suggesting sprayfoam. If you have deep pockets go for it. But for a polebarn I really don't think the cost is worth the benifit.
