My new to me Goodworks Tractor barn find 73 hour 2011/12 5115M arrived last night around 11pm, it was right at midnight when we finally had it unloaded and pulled into the barn.

Looks just like new, very impressed so far with the Tractors condition. It looks just as good in person as it did in the video.

I did have to pull those front fenders off right away.
Not really a fan of those, took them off the other one right way too.
I suppose if I was doing a lot of field work and having to road the tractor at high speeds with mud and or other debris stuck in the tires, I would appreciate them. I know with my other 5115M, I rarely ever see any more then 6-7 mph.
I also really just prefer seeing exactly where I putting my front tires, especially on uneven terrain and especially when caring a lot of weight on the loader.


Looking forward to making a lot of comparisons between the two, and learning the differences in the transmissions.
The 2014 has the 32/16 transmission, the 2011 has the crawler optioned 16/16 transmission.
You notice right off the tires are different.
I do like the shorter rear 30" tires on the 2011 and the wider front tires on the 2014. Already know with the Nokian hybrid turf radials that I have coming, one is getting that set for sure, undesided what I want to do on the long tire setup for the other one.

I don't really know, I doubt it, it is not on the 2014 5115M.
Everything other then interior fabrics and tire sizes seem to be about the same.
I think maybe a couple switches are in different locations, but are the same switches.

I think the accumulator was an option, so the other tractor may not have it????

Very interesting.
Nice find.
Thank you

When you said Accumulator I was thinking HVAC related accumulator, and both have heat and and air cabs.
Or I was picturing that it was likely for Air storage for something.
Very interesting. I am now wonder how it works or what it does to offer better ride or increased stability.

If you trace the hoses you will find the accumulator is teed in to the loader boom lift cylinders. Yours looks like it has the manual valve. You can also get an electric in cab valve.

I am not sure if the other one is forward or beside the newest addition, but I like the newest tires best. I can only see a little of the tractor in front's rear tires. The one beside it looks like flotation tires. I would pick the newest's for my 6415

The dirty one on right is the 2014 I bought a few months back and it has the larger Michelin tires, the rear wheels are 34". It's at least 2-3" taller then the 2011 I just got. The 2011 is setting on the left still really clean, it is riding on smaller Goodyear Tires.
The rear Tires on the 2011 look nice and wide, which I really like, I also like how the 2011 is a little shorter overall because of the shorter tires. The 2011 is just a little easier to get in and out of.

Yup, the accumulator is part of the LSS option, pretty cool feature to have.
Yea, it sounds really cool.
I am sure that is a feature I will most likely really enjoy.
Just had never heard of it till today.

So how does it work?
Does it make the front cylinders into something like shock absorbers?

There is a nitrogen filled bladder in the body of the accumulator, the lift pistons are Tee'd to this so it acts as shock absorber or cushion as the loader bounces.

Simple video:

Good catch.
I forgot about that.
The ordinal lights on the 14 they were round, the 2014 has been entirely upgraded to LEDs including the loader lights I also had added.

Nice tractors! Are the fronts on your 14 wider than its rears?
Not really. just looks kind of like that .
I Think the rears are just so tall, it looks like that.
The rears are really something like 3-4”s wider then the front by the tire size specs On the 14’.
