So I might have finally convinced the wife to the value of an FEL and started getting quotes. The local dealer I bought the tractor is over $350 more expensive before they deliver the tractor. They did include $300 for "dealer prep" which was not included by the second dealer. From the looks of the H120 it doesn't look particularly hard to install and by the time you factor in delivery you are looking at a price difference in excess of almost $500 and the wife no longer see's the value. Is there any reason not to install myself? Anything I should be on the lookout for? What are good prices?
H120 Loader, 53" bucket, ballast box came in at right around $3220+ tax
