Saw this at our State Fair, and couldn't resist. But, no loader, so not interested. I noticed the filters were marked with 1051 hours, so it's had some use.

PFFF!! My B3300 would walk all over that thing.

Actually, my green lawn tractor and my orange CUT share a garage/shop. I've never heard any squabbling out there, they get along great. Then again, I do keep my boat parked between them, maybe it acts as referee.

Back when I was still an iron worker we got small crane stuck while building a large warehouse for a tractor dealer. He handed me the keys for one like that (8 wheel articulating). I backed up to the crane and a fellow worker hooked up a heavy chain. I slowly pulled forward to tighten the chain. Everyone started laughing and yelling, the chain had snapped and I didn't even know it, never felt it. Amazing power.

Hey varmint, you look quite comfortable there. Was a hearty laugh for me this evening.
Cheers,
Mike

Now that's a tractor! Just curious. Can you even get a loader for that model? Steve
Why would you need one? That is what you would use a real loader for. image-4285190000.jpg

My neighbor does construction and I had an opportunity to put my Kubota next to his Deere one day.

Imagine the loader width to cover the footprint on a dual or triple set-up, and the leverage exerted from the corner. "Perfect for getting into those tight 16 foot areas" :)

AStanton, your photo reminded me of a great video I ran across last winter from Scandinavia, showing a BIG Volvo loader doing snow removal in the countryside where they must regularly get serious snow. It's bucket would comfortably fit a Mini. The operator's cab and controls looked first class, too.

Never seen a FEL on them, but I see plows (push blades) on those series a lot. Farmers use them to push & pack silage and corn in trenches.
(I always wonder about farmers using the tractor with the most dual tires for compacting. Sure, they can cover a wide area, but I wonder the actual compaction forces must be less. Maybe somebody can do the math? )
