    Nice tractor and trailer!

    Whats its primary use? Not too much snow I'd figure without a cab....

    Will have 2 main functions. Winter for loading sand and moving snow back (after a storm). Summer for moving/loading lobster traps.

    Plan to get some more attachements to do some other work. Rototiller, post hole digger, bush hog, etc.

    Nice tractor. How much does a lobster trap weigh?

    Thanks! (Just to be clear too, the tractor is actually my fathers but I will use it and keep it at my house about 11 months of the year.)

    A lobster trap can weigh anywhere from 30lbs to well over 100lbs. Just depends on where/how it will be fished.

    I'm so jelius. My cousin just bought one just like it except his is a 65HP. They are very nice tractors. If I had that tractor I would put a Farmi winch on it and go cut some wood. Not trying to be a jerk or any thing but, have fun putting chains on it becouse they will hit the fenders. My cousin had to raise his fenders so he could get chains on.

    Somehow they all seem to be 150lbs by the end of a 12 hour day.



    Great looking tractor. My next one will be about that size. I don't really need one that big, but why not?!

    No plans for chains at this point but that's good to know!

    I disagree, kind of hahaha. I have to fit mine through a bunch of gates and in some tight places around my barns. My future solution is to have three different sized tractors!payup
