Well it's been just over two months since I got the Ford 1500. I have put a little over 20 hrs on it and it have put 16 gal of fuel in and it has not used a drop of oil. It has graded the Lane 3 times, Tilled the 4 Gardens, pulled trailers hauling stuff. And moved aprox 20 ton of dirt(most of which went to level the floor in the shed). When I moved the shed in I had no level place to put it and no way to level the ground. So I set pentatreated 4X4 posts with 2X4's on top to set it level.
Setting it a foot and a half off the ground I can drive the tractor inside without having to duck the door frame. And after I had the shed set level and bolted to the plates, used steel siding to skirt it like you would a mobile home So when I got the tractor with 3 point scoop, I moved dirt inside to level the floor and leveled it with the rear blade(made for very little hand work).
I was really proud of myself, I only gently hooked the door frame twice with the blade?
:rolling: Overall This tractor amazes me and makes me look better than I am every time I run it.

Sounds like it's working out well for you. How about some pictures of that shed when you get a chance? The 1550 too.

Dave it will be dark when I get home. Probably be Weekend before I can get pitcures of the shed.
Guilty I was supose to have posted some in August when I was moving it.
Here in the compact section if you scroll down a bit there are a number of threads with pictures of the tractor.
I posted them in singles since I have not yet figured out how to post mutliples.

JD, when you open "more Reply Options, look just below Choose Files. There should be a "Try Our Advanced Uploader". That lets you upload multiple pics.
