this is what a hard working M7040 looks like after a long day of dirt moving

Come on now, you can do better than that. Mine gets dirtier than that in about 30 minutes of feeding the stock! Just ribing ya. Nice tractor by the way, looks just about like mine.

Cummins, thanks for your comments .... yes i love the tractor too. dont know if you noticed but I have added a remote control spotlight in place of the left front upper worklight. It works great

What type of wheel weights do you have on rear? I am considering the same. Wish I had gotten the cast iron disc.

blk, yes I changed to CI hubs that I think added 600 lbs per wheel and then bolted on cast iron center weight that adds 200 lbs per wheel and now adding two more weights per wheel. So will have total of 1200 lbs per wheel in cast iron and 800 lbs of fluid totalling 2000 lbs per wheel plus ballast box when needed weighing 2000 lbs. Tractor is 7000 lbs I think plus then 6000 lbs in added weight totalling 13000 lbs. Traction is very good indeed virtually no slippage

Great tractors, gents.

As someone here at TBN has often said: "Power is Good - So is Weight" ;)

You need power and weight to do work efficiently

That's a mighty fine rig you have there. (Tractor envy at bigger tractors than mine).

What kind of 4in1 bucket is that? WR Long?

See what you started...one picture is just not enough...
