I told my wife that while we were clear to the other town running chores they'd call and tell us they are loaded and ready to bring it. That's exactly what happened, seems things happen that way. They should probably call ahead and see if customers are available instead of loading up and saying they are on their way, but the good thing is they loaded all of it on the trailer we bought, so all they had to do was unhitch it if they were hooked up.

They ended up bringing it at around 12:30 our time after they called when I said we'd be home.

Man, do I have a lot to learn about this tractor. I'm looking forward to learning from all the experienced folks on here.

God bless!

Read the owners manual first even before starting it to get familiar with the controls, and maintenance intervals.
I read through the whole thing yesterday, and started again today. Right now I'm going to read through it again. I did take it for a drive around the property today though, just to get a feel for it.

Thanks for your advice, any input you have, or that of any others, I am all ears and ready to listen and learn.

One thing I have yet to find in the manual is how to relieve the hydraulic pressure. It says to do this several times in differing scenarios of disconnecting and reconnecting the hoses. But it never says how to do it.

Then there is the issue of it, in several instances, running down a list of how to do certain things, and instead of finishing by telling you right there on that page what to do, it gives a section within the book to find it in. So far every single reference has been wrong.

Unreal.

So I did find the correct pages, and wrote them in by hand to supercede the wrong info.

That said, the salesman, nothing against him, but he didn't have much product knowledge. In fact, there was little effort given to show us features or operations. It's the old "We sold you the product, pocketed the money, you're now on your own."

I do, however, understand there are many makes and models there, but then again, that's his job. (BTW I sold Chevy's for years, and knew the packages and models very well.)

with the front and rear buckets on the ground and the engine off, just move the hydraulic control levers to relieve the pressure. "If" you have an electronic actuated valve like a grapple, or any others, you'll need to turn the key on one position to energize the electronics, and then click the button, or move the joystick to relieve the pressure, but do not start the engine.

Well, that's really simple, thanks for the response.
