Since I did finally get a 3046R found and bought, I am actually only going forward with the 3pt finish mower you had mentioned, because I am trading off some stuff I don't have much use for anymore. The 90" will be decent backup for the batwing. I did sheer off the PTO shaft earlier in a fluke mishap this year, Was oringinally told it would be Aug or September to get a new shaft. I later found a local shop to repair the one I had sheared half. It was still down a week or two last spring. Mowing the whole place with the X758 by itself is a solid 14+ hour job.

I am planning to trade off my rototiller and my Frontier 60" rotary cutter for that 90" finish mower.

At this point I am more likely to use the finish mower at least occasionally, where I have an MX6 that if I need to cut into so really rough stuff I am going to grab it over the the Frontier anyway, and so far I have been able to accomplish all my tillage needs with my 3pt disk and my 3pt cultivator or sometime just dropping in the scarifies on the land plane gets what I need done.
Just have not ever found much need for the rototiller with my other easier 3pt attachments where I can simply click on and go to work.

Back on the Galaxy XTD tires subject.
Since I found that article and more info on the Yokohama USA website last night.
I have been making more calls and inquires today . That is one of several new sizes intended for the US market and targeted at the compact tractor applications.

Seems maybe that tire is just so new (Announced back in October 2020)
That was when Yokohama website posted that about the XTD and expanded sizes for compact tractors.

I so far have found the front XTD 215/70R15s tires to be available no problem. Even found a better price on them locally at $155 ea. Still not having much luck on the 400/70R20 rear tires but I have my local guys calling there Alliance or Yokohama rep. and I have sent in an enquiry directly into Yokohama about that rear tire size's availability.

Update on the 3046R . The dealer has it at the dealership now, it’s been serviced , the broom and front hitch have been removed . The mower deck awaits installation of the mulch kit and load N go brackets . Once those arrive they will install the mower deck. Then it’s ready to ship.
Dealer sent me a few pics this morning.

Thanks Jimmy.
I am ready to have one these back in the stable.
I have really missing my old 3039R with its MMM this season. Should have never traded that machine off.

That was probably the only real reason I had for wanting a 3046R this time was simply so I can say I at least gained a few model years and few pony's under the hood over my old 3039R , that it would not just be an expensive lesson learned having let the 3039 Go.

Yep, that was it. Now Courtney has the unicorn back and made it his personal tractor.
In the end I am extremely happy with the 5115M I traded that unicorn back to him for.
That 5115M had 70 hours on it when I got a few months ago. She has 140 something on it now.
That is by far my favorite machine.

Not that the others don't get used, heck just yesterday I spent an hour in the 2013 5115M, 2 hours in the 4066R and an hour on the 2025R.
