Yup, in his profile under latest news it says "the day has come i got me a 9020" I thought the 4041 had that hood decals too. BUT I would take a nice one of any number/color! Got to go wipe the drool off my keyboard. :D

Ok now for the story. I work at a shop that does welding and heavy equipment repair. its in a long building that has about 10 bays that are rented out by various businesses. I started working towards the end of my senior year in high school, about 6 months ago. the first week i was there i was driving around the yard in a bobcat loader and i spotted in the next bay over some orange metal. I was having so much fun exploring in the skid steer that i didnt even realize what i had seen, it just didn't register in my brain. anyway 5 months passed and it never once occurred to me to go look closer. about 2 days ago i was out side in front of the shop welding on an excavator bucket i heard an engine start up in the next bay over. i thought nothing of it and kept welding. i lifted up my welding hood up to put a new welding rod in the stinger when i saw john of J&M truck repair driving it around the parking lot. all of a sudden it hit me that that was what i had seen tucked away in the back of the shop next door 5 months ago during my bobcat joyride!! he shut it off and i ran over and asked him what the story was on the tractor. he said he doesn't have time for it and its up on craigslist. :O i asked what he was looking to get for it and he said 1850 but for you i'll let it go for 1500. i couldn't say the words "I'll take it" fast enough :D

thanks guys, im excited to get it working and use it. Bucket is shot, need to make a new one I'm not really impressed with the original one and how its put together, any ideas on how to improve on it?


also the breaks don't work worth crap. are they hard to fix?

Zach, you said you were welding on heavy equipment. Take note of how the buckets are made and downsize to fit, those were made to dig and "get a load" in. Bet you'll find most have a rounded bottom in the back. Very sweet find for sure

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
