Hi, I just brought home an 855 yesterday with a 70A loader on it. I hvae always wanted to have the chance to spend some time with one of these and my wonderful wife bid on this unit for me while I was flying home from a work trip!
Anyway, I consider myself handy but this is a complicated machine and I am a little intimidated as it's my first diesel 4x4 tractor. The biggest thing I had been around much was a simplicity 9020 and this close to twice that size...so I am in the intimidated / "what did I do" phase of this experience.
I need to go over this unit to make sure maintenance is up to snuff and sort out some electrical gremlins.
At any rate, this seems like a pretty cool forum resource so I am starting here to get smarter. Any FAQs I should read please point me in that direction so I can avoid being too anoyoing with the basic questions that most probably have.
I have the TM1360 Tech Manual and CTM3 engine supplement, but I would like to get the operator manual JD-O-OMM95303 operators manual and the PC2054 parts manual. Any susgestions for the best value for money on those?
I have a lot of ambition for this spring around the house but I really want to make sure fluids are good / filters are clean etc first.
Thanks for reading my intro!
