It sort of dried up enough for me to try and dig some more stones today.I put the teeth onto the 1655 and dug just a few before it started to rain again.Had my little guy digging the stones and I used the MF GC 2300 to haul and fill the holes.The rain stopped us as it was getting to slick,don't want to make to much of a mess.At least the stones won't be bothering the mower's anymore.

Those are some pretty hefty stones Larry! And that's one sweet looking 1655!

Thats an awesome looking rig! What kinda loader is that? Thats a love rock you hooked onto there! Does it have enough lift capacity to lift that up!?? I'd be afraid of snapping the front axle! Awesome pics! Luke

It's a Cub Cadet Model 610 loader.I needed do have a bunch of loader work done 3-4 yrs ago.I had a geo thermal heating system put into our place and the lines where run through the tree's etc;.It was pretty tight and couldn't get into most places with the MF 175.I could have hired out the work but it would have cost me quite a few $$ so seen this loader advertised in the paper.It was brand new the guy had about 15 of them he's a equipment dealer,so I bought it and made it fit onto my MF 1655. It works excellent.I didn't mind spending the $$ for it as to have hired someone to come do the work would have cost me what I paid for the loader.Of course I installed a hyd pump to run the loader and if I didn't set the relief valve down a bit it'll easily lift the back of the tractor off the ground.With me being sort of worried about breaking the front axle,spindles etc: I dig the stones out with the loader on float that way no excees weight on the front axle.It'll lift that stone no problem however big one's like that I just push them into the bush out of the way.Larry.

You did a nice job making that loader fit on the Massey Larry! It looks like a very nice rig to work with. Nice Job!

Same comments from me Larry... great rig, and a nice job of fabricating the loader to fit to your tractor!
