I finally got approved for my new tractor yesterday and got it all ordered up. It's going to be a long week and a half to 2 weeks to get it. I have been visiting this forum off and on for a few months now and I finally feel like I am worthy of joining. I look forward to learning everything I can here. I have 20 acres of field, woods and a big hill to put this tractor to work on. Project number one is to try to fix my horrid gravel driveway before the woman looses her cute little car in a ginormous pot hole. :greentractorride:

Welcome aboard from Massachusetts.

You mentioned hills? I'll mention ballast. Do your homework before taking the new rig out on hills!

Be safe & have fun!

Welcome from Preston County, West Virginia

X2 , BIG learning curve for hills. Up and down, ,keep bucket low ,,very low to ground and as SS suggested ,, ballast. Once you feel comfortable still be aware and don't take your guard down. Yes you can travel side to side but again slow , bucket low, ballast and one of the biggest safety tips on hills 4 X 4 don't attempt up or down especially with fel on without having tractor in 4WD.

Be safe and enjoy .

Welcome to GTT from the afternoon shadows of Pikes Peak! I see you have a few of your own peaks around that cast shadows.

Did I miss it, or has no one asked what did you order???
