Don't come to W.Va. with it loaded like that.
Backhoe bucket on the trailer bed with a tight strap or chain across the bucket.
Otherwise you get to meet some of our fine WVDOT officers, and they must get a real deal on ink pens, they like to write you love notes.
Note goes something like, we would love some of that folding green out of your wallet.

Nice looking machine though.

The owners manual also explicitly says to not strap it across the middle of the deck. But that is exactly how mine came from the dealer. Not a lot of places to hook to with these little guys, though. Must be some locations to hook to near the tires on the frame.

Nah, no snow moved. I have a john deere riding mower with a 42" snowblower that handles all of that. The Massey will be a backup for now.

Here's a pic of the 22 yards of mulch we spread with the fel.

That's a head scratcher. One would think the dealer would know how to load em up.

That's about the amount we spread every year. Had been doing it a couple yards at a time by pickup and trailer. This year, with my 1715, I can do it your way. Looks a whole lot easier.
