Saturday morning I bought a GC1710, it was delivered today.

I purchased it from Big Boy's Toys in Pomfret Center CT. which is a couple miles from my house. I had a thumb installed for the backhoe.

I ordered some bolt-on hooks for the bucket yesterday, tonight I'll order a toothbar.

Time to read the manual now and get ready to put the little red beast to work this weekend.

Nice choice. LOL Did you buy the mower too? I thought about a backhoe when I bought mine but figured I'd have the whole yard dug up at some point. LOL I had 2 new Cub Cadet tractors before buying my GC.....wished I'd bought the GC first. :thThumbsU

Didn't get a mower deck, the Cub Cadet 1320 will still be on mower duty.

Ended up ordering a Piranha tooth bar.

I read the manual last night, probably gonna take a while to get used to this new tractor.

Welcome! Nice machine you have there. Looking forward to seeing pictures of it in use.

Having a Thumb is a great addition to the backhoe, you will get lots of use out of it.
