/ Looking at 2565 #11
Thank you sir.I bought a 2565 in August of last year. So far I have had zero problems with it and it has done everything I expected of it. Along with the tractor I bought the FEL with bucket and 48" forks and a 78" two stage WIFO snow blower. I only have about 65 hrs on it so far due to last winter being pretty mild. I also have a 6 ft. mower that I had for a previous tractor.
I don't have any experience with a 10' mower but I suspect the tractor should handle it fine. My property has some areas I can't blow the snow from so I use the FEL to push the snow to where I can blow it. I end up with piles 5' high and 10' to 20' deep, the tractor and blower cut through those piles just fine so it has good PTO HP.
During the winter I found I have to cover the lower half of the radiator with cardboard so the engine will warm up properly. You may need to do the same thing.
Good luck with your new tractor, I hope you are as happy with yours as I am with mine.
I haven't used it much since since I bought it, except for loading and unloading hay. So far I love it. Here's my little trainee.im looking at a 2016 2565 shuttle, i own now a boomer 41, i want more hp and loader lift capacity, any advice you can give me would be appreciated, also looking at a ls 4155 hydro
