Got tractor, loader, box blade and extra hydraulics for loader grapple. Bought in Wills Point, Texas, great dealership! Really like the shuttle shift, smooth and easy to use. Used last weekend to load brush (made 3ft brush forks out of 5 steel posts that fit inside bucket) and all worked great!
Never once felt like I needed a hydrostatic transmission that everyone says you gotta have. With the gear transmission you get an accelerator pedal that makes speed control easy and the shuttle shift is so simple to use with your left hand, leaving your right hand free for the loader joy stick! None of this high RPM's/speed back and forth which is hard on equipment.
Tractor starts instantly, runs cool, steers effortlessly, seat is comfortable and everything works! No jerky hydraulics either. I grew up in the 50's using allis chalmers so the ORANGE works! Live in East Texas, so lots of time/good weather to play with my new toy.
