    Ho-Ho-Ho Merry Christmas---in March: 1025R TLB

    I picked it up on Friday. It sat in the trailer until I returned to our other home this morning. I unloaded it, removed the backhoe and placed it on the Bxpander backhoe dolly. Next, I removed the loader and then ran the tractor up on the lift platform in the shop----so I can take it apart. Just like my childhood Christmases---open the gift and then take it apart.

    I left the cab, snowblower and quick hitch at the dealer. They'll store it for me until fall as I need to find a new home for one on the 455s to make some room. I need to stop by the dealer's location near our other home and pick up the mower deck later this week.

    The dealer had a parts promo running last week, so I picked 10 more suitcase weights. They were 53.92 each. Heavy Hitch had them for 49.00, but I figured the shipping would likely more than consume the difference. I also ordered a front weight bracket from Heavy Hitch, as I have a 647 tiller. This is part of the reason why I opted for suitcase weights for ballast rather than a ballast box.

    I'll install the independent mower deck lift, RIO bypass, and some additional wiring for the cab, tow behind sprayer, linear actuator chute deflector and so forth. I have the components for the exhaust tip coming, also. Once I get done with the tractor and put the FEL and backhoe on again, I have some Ken's Bolt-on Hooks to install, as well.

    As soon as I find a home for a 455, I'll order the Artilian pallet forks and grapple kit.

    Santa did leave me a clump of coal, however. It was wrapped in the financing agreement.....

    Congratulations!

    Seems like possibly too heavy of a load for a single axle trailer though. 😇

    The trailer has a 3000 pound axle and tires. So there was still some wiggle room. I was a bit tail heavy, so I had to keep my speed under 60mph. Next time I load it, I'm going to try backing it on. Hopefully, that will move some of the weight forward so the trailer doesn't sea-saw. Without the FEL and backhoe, the 1025R weighs in at 1444 pounds.

    Oh crap! I don't see where I can fix it. Perhaps a Moderator can fix it for me?

    That lump of coal will be a thing that only thought of once a month. You have the rest of the month to enjoy your seat time!
