I'll check it out!

One other thing. A goal will be to own a tiller some day. I see in the manual that a 42" is recommended, and the Land Pride unit is 42". Other than that it looks like 42s are hard to find. I see many options in 48".

A brief Google also shows me several instances of people who have a 48 with the 1880 and are happy. I'm tempted to just get one of those when cash allows. Stick to the manual or not? On my property my soil is mostly sand. I doubt I'd have trouble running most any tiller here. However, who knows what buddy may want some help at his or her house some day.

How much weight will filling the rear tires add?

Depends on size of tires, and what "liquid" you use.
Water? windshield washer fluid?, Calcium Chloride?, Rim Guard?

According to my spec sheet the tires are 24x12-12, and I believe he said they use a water/antifreeze mix.

The Rim Guard chart shows 8 gallons to fill those tires, and Google tells me a 50/50 mix is 9.4 lbs/gal. I don't know what ratio they plan to use, but that gives me a good ballpark to have in my head.

Just playing with numbers while I wait, because that's what I do .

Looks like the loader with bucket comes in around 500 lbs, and I have 50 lb wheel weights for both sides ordered as well. I do not have any ballast besides that, but one of my first implements for the rear should be a box blade!

I gather that it's difficult to find the correct sized cylinder for a hydraulic top link on these tractors? Do any of you know of a source for them? I think I'd like a hydraulic top link. I'm not sure if I have a use for tilt yet or not.

So, I'm torn about the tach 'n go. Seems like a great product, but the specifics are a little fuzzy for me.

With it on my tractor, will it quickly and easily attach to my pin on bucket, and other things designed to pin on like my bucket does? Obviously it also works with his QA products he's designed.

Will it *also* work with things designed for a standard quick attach? For instance, if I had the tach n go and scored a land pride loader implement of some kind intended for the kubota QA loader, would it work?

You would have to talk to Jery, or maybe some others here on TBN have used other loader items with the tach n go. I think Jery sent me pins to go in my pin on bucket. I am pretty sure the new style Kubota BX QA will NOT work with the tach n go. But the standard pin on loader items would work. May have to install pins in them though. Jon

Gotcha!

That sounds just fine. If it attaches and detaches quickly and easily, it matters not to me whether the loader attachment is labeled QA, or pin on. Just need to know what I'm working with before purchasing something!

I am guessing that pin on attachments might be a smidge cheaper anyway? I'm also guessing those will be easier for me to find secondhand.
