OK guys I'll try to get it done soon. Tonight I'm dead beat only played with it (blading gravel to the aproach to the asphalt drive) 1/2 hr and decided it was not safe to try to get used to a machine that whipped. I have not slept well for 2 days? Will try to get the pictures in the next day or so.

The 60" brush buster scared me pretty good when I carried the front wheels up the hill and had to steer with the brakes.
I know it's heavy. but the way this thing is ballasted it should not be like that! I'll have to play with the top link and see if I can't get it balanced better. But then it might partly be that I hauled it with the Rhino blade on top of the mower?

And Daniel your probably right, 1500 was first generation, followed by 1510 and third generation was 1520.
Yes it has 9.5 X24 tires and I suspect the guy I bought it from is right in his claim it would out work an 8N any day of the week.

Yep,I looked up pics of a 1520, and that's what was on the guy's lot for sure. And yes JD, you might be right....using the mower to haul the Rhino blade "might" have been part of the balance problem! :smilewink: Even without pics, I know you have a good tractor there!

I think you'll find the tractor much easier to handle with the extra weight gone.
You purchased yourself the perfect size tractor for what your doing. Your gong to be enjoying your tractor for a long time.
If yours runs like the other diesels in this size range purchasing fuel will be a rare occurrence.

Yes Chris it should sip fuel. Dan the guy I bought it from said it would run about 16 hrs on 5 gal of fuel.
The Gas Fords I was looking at were more like 2.4+ gal per hour.

You don't need a host to post your photos. just click the the photo you want and drag it to your desk top. You can choose the photo you want from there. Very simple to do.

Chris is right. You can upload pics directly to the site without having to worry about resizing them, the site software will take care of that for you. Just click on the more reply options and then click on the add attachment button and pick the pictures you want to load from your computer.
