    Am I Goldilocks?

    Hello again! I haven’t been posting much the past couple of years. If y’all remember I had a 1025r that I started doing custom work with. I then sold it to my dad and bought a 3046r cab because I needed the bigger tractor and the west Texas dust about killed me. I then moved to the SA area and only had an acre. Custom work didn’t go well since the area is saturated with landscapers. I sold the 3046r and really missed it. In November I moved to 2.25 acres and once again needed a tractor. I will also be doing some deer work and minor cattle work on our ranch in south Texas. The 1025 works well but it just barely can get over the sides of the dump trailer. A three series with a cab just wouldn’t fit into my shop so I decided on the 2038r over a 3r open station. Got the 72D, dual rear outlets, single point connector, premium LED which is amazing, 57” HD bucket, and I put the Hydraulic top link from Fit right from my 3046r on. I also got a BB2065 box blade (should’ve gotten the 50 series), MX5, DH3263 offset disk with scrapers, and SS3067B spreader.

    I took some pictures of it next to my old (dad’s now) 1025r. I threw party and had to borrow the 1025r to mow with. I also put it to work today hauling some firewood out of the creek. It pulled the load really well. Oh, I almost forgot the most important feature: I had the tires foam filled. No flats ever and ballast. Best thing you can do to a tractor.

    So, I had to take off the bottom right SCV coupler to remove the top link since it was in the way. The dealer installed my ROPS lights facing backwards. I have exactly 1/4” of clearance between the top of the ROPS and the shop door. Neither trailer tire liked the weight. I find it dumb that thE rear SCVs are too and bottoms instead of left and right. So far I really like it but know that come summer I will really miss the cab I once had.

    Also, this Tractor puts a lot more weight on the ground. The tires basically have the exact same footprint as the 1025r but with a lot more weight. It’s quieter though.

    ROPS height can be fixed. When I had my 1025R, it would not go in the garage with the std 7ft door height. When I got done, it went in with no problem. However, my 4066R cab is 8ft high and I can't do anything about that. Bummer.

    Look at the op's pics. Specifically the one showing the rear scv's. Notice that one of the hydraulic quick connects is blocking the linchpin removal. Had they just installed the pin from the opposite direction PRIOR to installing the dual rear remote scv's, nothing would be wrong. The OP removed the hydraulic quick connect to remove the pin. I just grabbed my angle grinder with a cutting wheel and cut the linchpin, second later I was good to go. I have many spare linchpin's around so it was no big deal.
