    Hello from Southern Middle Tennessee. I’ve bought 5 acres with 5 barns and a really old house. The house was not saveable, and 2 of the barns weren’t either. As of today the house is in a hole and one of the barns is down, wood de-nailed and stored in the dry.
    I bought a 3025E in December after we bought the property and the tractor now has about 130 hrs on it. I also bought the loader, pallet forks, bush hog, box scraper, auger, receiver hitch, 18’ trailer and most recently I converted the 3 point over to the quick attach set-up and 2 weeks ago I bought a JD 5’ rototiller.
    Yesterday while moving some posts from the demo’d barn to storage, I almost turned the tractor over. Luckily while heading off the tractor I was able to grab the lever that controls the pallet forks and get all 4 tires back on the ground. Yes, I did have the roll bar (UP)!
    The JD and all the implements have worked great. Looking forward to learning from everyone here and hopefully being able to contribute.
    "While heading off the tractor" is the statement that concerns me. Why were you heading off tractor if it was potentially in the process of turning over. Were you wearing your seatbelt? The golden rule of thumb is: Rops up/seatbelt on - Rops down/seatbelt off.

    No matter what, glad it worked out and you didn't get hurt.

    Welcome from central Ohio and congratulations

    Removing your bum from the seat also helped de-ballast your machine, The fact that you had the presence of mind (and time) to lower your forks and get your wheels back on firm ground may have prevented a Green disaster.

    Personally, I would ballast the machine with your bush hog or tiller before you use the loader again. I would also ensure that the load is removed and the forks are low before you dismount.

    We look forward to hearing more about your progress as you rehab the property; We also look forward to learning more about your evolving tractor experience
