Yes, that's what I'm considering. I bought it at a great price and it does a great job, but I recently bought a quick hitch for my x750 and I want to utilize that as much as possible. A tractor shovel would help me do that and I'd utilize the front blade too. A grapple purchase is also in the long range plans. I've been able to use the CTC loader a few times but really not enough to justify the purchase. Everything that I've done with the loader I could have done with the shovel with the exception of the loader height. I'd probably miss the FEL but enough that I'd be sorry? Not sure. I think a shovel is about all I need. You guys that have the tractor shovel, how's that working for you?
