My friend broke his tractor in half while spreading dry dirt. He went the next week and bought a Kubota to replace it. He received no help in repairing the defective tractor. We live and learn. I picked the tractor up on dry flat ground with a slight incline in front of it.
No more that a 12" elevation change. Watch your bolts that hold the rear end to the transmission this could be a weak point. NH has since made a upper axle bracket that reinforces the the top side of the rear axle. I will fix this tractor myself, but will give it my support that should have been done to begin with.
