I know everybody loves pics so.....here's a few from back in October. My buddies wife took these, & finally sent em to me yesterday. My buddy is on an Orange 2370. We were digging out a pond. Not a fish pond, more of a general wildlife watering hole pond. The majority of it was done with FEL's. However, there was a rock shelf towards the back corner where the natural spring was. That's where the backhoe came in super handy. Was a fun couple days.

The end result was a pond about 9' deep at the deepest point. I don't have a picture of both tractors side by side, facing the same direction but, I think you can see what I mean about the 1025R having a larger presence. The 2370 impressed me with what it could do but, this experience solidified my opinion that I had made the right choice at the time. This was the first work I put my backhoe through. With several more project under my belt now, I've certainly got smoother operation.

Our wives laugh at us, & tease us because we are like a couple little kids playing in the dirt. Besides individually, we've got multiple joint projects lined up for spring. Sure is fun :greentractorride:

What a great project to stretch the tractor legs on. If I dug a foot deep over here I would have water in it already.

We didn't switch seats that day but..... I did let him drive mine today :laugh: We were cutting some firewood & he drove a load on my tractor to my porch. He commented how much different it feels than his Orange tractor, & that he liked it :hi:

I'll take a pic of his pond next time I'm over there if possible.

Wait a minute Kenny, haven't you heard? Them orange tractors are so much better then the JD that they don't need a rear ballast. They have all that metal on their tractors. ol: You know I'm kidding right? :dunno:
Haven't you seen an Orange JD TLB's? Initially that is what I thought this thread was about. I'll see if I still have a picture.

Huh, and to think for the last 10 years, I assumed the blow hard across the way didn't use ballast on his orange tractor because he is lazy and cheap amongst other less than desirable characteristics that I rather not say here.:unknown: Thanks for clearing that up Levi!:lolol:

I have now, if that's really a JD?? You have to remember where I live. In Tn. there is a lot of orange. And I don't mean just tractors. Tn. Vols is all about orange. The Blue and Yellow I go with really stands out. :mocking:
