Intro and thanks! 4X5
I've been reading here for a while for everything tractor related. We bought a new house with new requirements, so we finally needed a tractor of sorts.
We're mowing about 1.5 acres, have a decent driveway in the NE, and have some dirt work to do.
After a lot of looking, and talking to a friend with a 445, I picked up a 455 off CL pretty local, and it went down hill from there.
I added a Ruegg CAT 1 3 point and a back blade. I had a lot of traction issues, so I upgraded the turfs to loaded UDAPs in the rear. That got me through a lot of issues, but adding cast starter weights helped a lot.
Somewhere in there it was way out of balance, so she has 5 suitcase weights on the front bumper, but makes a nice little dirt mover!
Only issue now, is I have to drag dirt around, or load it by hand into the cart!
So a 445 / 40 followed me home last week. Price was good, but again, weight and traction limited. I'll be getting those issues fixed soon as well.
Thanks for the help guys!
