Did you get the left or right hand drive?
This will make a huge difference in loader work.
Don't forget to keep the muffler bearings fully lubricated. Many owners don't and it is a really expensive repair.
A rub of bacon fat will really help the paint stay bright and fresh.(y)

But... really take it slow and no question is stupid if you aren't sure about something.
Mistakes can be expensive, dangerous and unfortunately fatal.

Don't carry riders!
Little kids love to go for a ride. They also squirm and slip.
They don't bounce or handle getting run over well.

As everyone wrote - Go low and slow, and it's only an internet rumor without pictures.
MAKE SURE YOUR FUEL IS LABELED!!
It only takes 1 well meaning idiot to fill a tank with GAS and ruin an engine.

Congrats.

The dealer/delivery person should've gone over most of this stuff when they brought it out. You did that with the cars you sold, right (here's the blinker, here's how the radio works, etc...)?
Yes, I went over the features with my customers. One time I did not do that because the customer was in a hurry and told me not to worry about it, he'd give me a good survey.

Of course he called the dealership a couple of hours later to complain he couldn't figure out how to roll the windows back up. The buttons were the type where you had to use your finger to pull the button up.

So I got called back to come in and show him how things work. He did tell the manager he told me he didn't have time when he left to do it.

I probably took me around 50 hours of use before I found myself really comfortable with my first tractor.

All sorts of uses. All sorts of jobs.

Best purchase I made for the property.
It may take me that long, or longer.

I have 4500+ (not a typo) on my bx and still learn things all the time. After 400+ hours on the LS I understand how it reacts to most things but still. Always finding new things to try and/or do.

Congrats on the new LS. Also a common thing we new tractor owners do is do all too often. It's a tractor, not a skidsteer, be careful on not put too much force on the front end loader when trying to break ground etc. A cutting edge is much preferred, if you need to cut into sod or hard packed dirt. And do it in layers instead of big chunks.......but I'm sure the manual mentions this?

I can't recall anything in the manual about that. It is poorly written IMHO, I got halfway through again today but chores called. I think I'm going to keep the box blade mounted, plus I have fluid in the tires, to use for added ballast until I get a ballast box. Wondering what you and others advise about this.
