    Yes and this toy is a bit on the pricey side but I think it will pay off in the long run. I'm already thinking of all things I can do with it. I can see this purchase is just the beginning. Now I am looking at the heavy hitch and plows for a garden. My wife had no idea what was going on when I bought her that expensive purse for Christmas! It's Green Acres in 2014!!!!!

    The 1 Series really does shine when attachments are in you plans. I know my personal implement count has skyrocketed. :D

    "Coach" purse Christmas brib.... er... "present" here as well, but my wife is long experienced with ploys like that and knows something "powered" will be arriving for the shop in future.

    I didn't know how unashamedly I would use my FEL when I got it. I mean transporting potted plants in it where I used to hand truck 'em, etc. Composting with a loader is a whole new joy!

    You and I could have been sitting on that same bench at the Mall. Lol
    Really, what can they do with those purses compared to what we can do with our tractors?

    Also remember that boys are forced to grow old not to grow up.

    You will love it!!
    Made so many big jobs easier for me!!
    The FEL & ballast box are a perfect tool for many things.

    Just pause a minute & think, where you are, position of tractor on slope or ? & position of FEL?
    I was a volunteer firefighter for 22 years, both wildland & regular fire dept.
    The "pause & think" before you act saved my tushy many times over, I can't express that enough!!

    Enjoy your new tractor, a little care & maintenance & it will serve you well for many years!
