I'm posting to introduce myself. I took delivery of my first John Deere last week: 2520 with 62D and 200CX. Honestly, this is my first piece of equipment larger than a 42" riding mower. So needless to say, I'm a real newbie when is comes to using the 3-point and PTO. I look forward to leaning from you all. Attached is a photo. Thanks.

Welcome to the forum! I am new as well. I bought a 2520 a few weeks ago. This forum has a wealth of knowledge. Have fun looking around!!

Guys, I started right where you are back in March of '08. That step up from garden and lawn tractors is a bit intimidating but, if I can do it anyone can. Isn't this learning FUN! :dance::thumbup1gif:

Hi TT and welcome to DT:good2:
Enjoy that new machine. I've only a little over 70 hours on mine,but have loved every one of them.
I'll ask before Kennyd does. Did you also get a ballast box for that FEL?:wink:

No, I don't have a ballast box yet. I'm still weighing my options. The dealer removed it from the order. I guess he didn't think I needed it and I was too dumb to ask. What does the Deere ballast box cost? It seems like that money could go towards a larger implement, like a box blade. Can you get lower priced boxes at places like Tractor Supply?

The JD BB is about $300. The advantage of it is that it's compact and heavy. A good heavy box blade will work but also gets in the way when doing FEL work.
