    Also have a brand new spinner for the spreader that is designed for spreading fertilizers. Spreader has 2 top screens with different size openings for material sifting. Has form fitted canvas to keep the weather out of the spreader. These options exceeded $1,000 when I purchased them and are also included in the Package Price.

    Although I have used this for Summer use, it has been primarily used for Snowplowing. It is always kept inside a heated shop and has been washed after every use.

    Im not in the market for a tractor yet, but I do enjoy looking at tractor setups. If you have the time would you mind telling me how you load the sander... do you have to use another machine... or shovel it in/bags, or does it scoop somehow?

    Looks like a very effecient setup. Good luck on your sale.

    Bags now days give me HIVES, shovels are for young men, so I use a skidsteer with a heated cab. The spreader holds about 3,000 pounds. If it were to tilt and scoop would be real nice, but as far as I know, I have not seen anything this size that will?

    Our Town has the self loading spreaders, I agree they're not as big and I doubt they hold 3000lbs. Looks like a good deal. (Whatcha gonna buy when you sell it?)

    Jim- This tractor looks as good as when i saw it! I can't believe your gonna part with it. I would love to have it but I just bought a new acreage and shop so gotta wait a bit. This tractor will make a awesome machine for someone! We'll have to get together for a bit this summer and talk liquids too. There is a webinar on June 1st through SIMA on liquids I'm gonna get. Talk to ya later

    Honestly I can not say exactly for sure. I have been reading up on this issue. According to the manufacturer they claim approx 22+? According to the mph gauge in the tractor = 17-18 mph. But having said that, according to the service manual, it has to be calibrated thru the digital gauge according to the size of the tires and I'm not positive the dealer calibrated the gauge when I up graded the tires? But I know it takes me 23 minutes to travel 8.9 miles to one of my jobs, but that includes stopping at the stops signs? Sorry for a not so exact answer.

    How do you have your hydraulics plumbed so that you can move the plow wings independently?

    I have a 10' Boss V that I'd like to put on my skid but I don't know how to make each of the wings do their own thing.

    You can buy an electric splitter valve since a skid only has 1 remote or on a tractor you can use 2 rear remotes. Good luck with the sale of the tractor.

    On this tractor, I had 1 pair remotes plumbed to the front end. So I had a pair of hoses (24' long) made and hooked into the extra rear remotes. But I have been told you can hook up the plow to 1 pair remotes if you hook your hoses in a series to the cylinders, but that would mean you would have to run thru all the positions to get back to where you started. Seems like a cheaper way of hooking them up ,but slow? Like JD said a electric splitter would work best?
