yeah…..me, too.
If I can be spared any big repair bills a while, it would be a miracle. Had enough in the past year :oops:
Just a curious observation from the pictures: I'm surprised that the 3pt lift is not using two large external cylinders but rather what must be a huge internal lift cylinder. Wonder what that trade-off is about ?

Hay Dude, that hydraulic lock and un-lock on your quick attach will spoil you, until I recently got my skid steer which has it, I had only had manual which never bothered me because I didn't know any different, but now I do.

It's an option on ALO loaders, that can be added at any time, I could have it on mine, if I wanted it.

All I can tell you is I like it, it won't stop me from using everything else I have that doesn't have it but if it's an option on something that I order new I will get it.

What else is cool is it also has a set of outlets for a grapple, it’s self leveling, and has shockless ride. Using it already and loving it.
Just gotta hope its a good tractor and not a hooptie

Those are also options, there should be a valve that you can open or close, to take the accumulator out of the soft ride circuit when you want.

That's very nice and handy. I've been contemplating adding an electric actuator on mine for that same reason.

By the way, that tractor is a beast. So much more tractor and loader than the Kubota.

I noticed on first picture of post #52 the lower bar on the quick attach seems bent or it's just the picture making it look weird?
It is “humped” a little, but hooks up just fine.

The size is just right for picking up 2) 2,000lb square bales and sticking on trucks without fear of tipping, without being TOO big.
It’s smaller than the Massey and the Case IH by quite a lot, but still has excellent power & loader.

It’s push button.
On the Kubota, you have to get out of the cab & twist the knob.
The loader joystick is just a small knob. I have to get a manual and dial back the sensitivity. lol
