The homemade FEL is a bit rougher than I'd like, but it should be good enough for what I'll use it for. I'm pretty sure that I'll end up changing the lift cylinders to double acting ones sometime in the future,
Tractor isn't a beauty queen, but the engine/trans seems to be strong. No smoke or oil leaks anywhere.
Seller was asking $900.00, I low balled him at $750.00, he came back with $800.00, and I loaded it on the trailer

I'm going to be looking for either a 3-pt or sleeve hitch for it I think. I need something to put some weight on the back end, as it has nothing right now. I think I can get by this winter for moving some snow with out weight, but if I start moving dirt this next spring/summer, weight will be a must.
