    Nice tractor. What type of area are you going to plow with it?

    Time for a bigger trailer ;) the rig looks real nice, im curious as to what your dealer told you in regards to not filling the tires.

    told me its best to hang weights on the rear tires. dont want the calcium or what not sloshing back and forth in the tire while moving with all the stop and go. also said that if the tires go flat and we show up in the am were going to need to have a tire shop come out to the sight instead of just using a compressor

    going to park it on a six acre parking lot. once that lot is finished were going to drive it closer to town to help our trucks out on their routes that consist of some pretty large lots that arent open 24/7.like where the rig is going to be parked.

    I would go with the kage like dirtyscag said best of both worlds. And tractor looks sweet.

    does it already have a straight blade?

    if so can't I am pretty sure you just get the Kage Box and bolt that onto any straight blade with a trip edge
