ill probably looks for some rear remote extensions to run up to the FEL so i can run skid steer attachments up there. especially for a plow or snow blower in winter.

i have been going to farm and estate auctions and have gotten some great implements either from them, or talking to the other people at the auction. brush hog 5 ft mower for 300 that looks almost new, jd80 blade for 200, a 7 shank ripper for a few hundred.

you think they would at least power wash it for you!

Well I ended up with a 2000 hours Kubota M5-111 for $25k put new front tires on it. I'm replacing a wobbly steering wheel and had the dealer do the DEF recall on it. She's straight off the dairy farm and after a degreasing bath and a round of fluid changes she'll be beautiful again lol

Nope I scored it in NY of all places. Snatched it from a dealer as soon as I caught wind of it and basically bought it sight unseen. Glad I did. I scored a heck of a deal I think! I do have plans for the Eliot dealer to order and install my 3rd function. Sounds like It may take a while to get my 3rd function kit ordered

cabs are a PITA on any tractor in any weather! ---- other than 3-pt a skidloader would work much better for you. Also you can get 3-pt. adapters for skidloaders, so that is another option.
:D:rolleyes:

Thanks! I saw that tractor data already. I didn't find the 4wd operating weight but if I use the 2wd rops weight difference between operating and shipping it's 787lbs difference. Add that to 4wd and it's 7092 but that's just a guess. Also i cant find the weight of the DL260 loader which I'm suremis at least 1k lbs? So that's an 8100lb tractor? I imagine even a 10k gvwr trailer would be on the fringes
A 10,000 lb. trailer would be a bit over "the fringes".
