    Old guy new tractor

    Hi, I spent near my entire life near Waterloo, Iowa “except for a 4 year (61 to 65) stent In the Marine Corps until I retired. I’m now located near Phoenix Arizona. I am not now nor have I ever been a farmer ( I used to have 7 acres and an old 630 JD. My wife and I were sitting on the patio and I said I wanted another tractor. A week later my fully loaded 3046R, a 4 in 1 Bucket and 4’ Pallet Forks was delivered as I sat out front, I had no idea it was bought or coming. I’m 75 years OLD. I don’t know anything about the tractor and most of the buttons on the dash but I’m learning as I play with it. My 630 had a start button easy learning curve, the new tractor “lol” not so much. So bear with me I’ll more then likely be asking what to you are questions you feel I should know if I have a tractor like this, but a farm boy at heart, a city boy by circumstance, just has a new toy to learn how to play with. Isn’t America Great. I’m also a little confounded about how to navigate this forum been here a couple hours. Take care all, be safe, enjoy life.

    Congratulations on the new tractor and welcome to the site.

    So you had no idea the tractor was purchased as in a present?

    There is lots of good information and even some good fun available here.

    Check out the LCUT thread which is where questions for your tractor would go.

    https://www.greentractortalk.com/for...nical-library/

    Make sure to read the ballast thread. Lots of good information on how to keep all 4 wheels on the ground.

    What is "Rear Ballast"? And why do you need it?
    Taking the easy way is what makes rivers and men crooked.

    Welcome. I’d love a 630. Maybe I need a wife like yours. Mine seems to think one tractor is more than enough.
