I came home with a trailer full yesterday

I was busy this weekend. I made an offer on Friday AM that was accepted on a tractor in Northern VT. I spent Friday running around to get rental equipment to go get the tractor Saturday.It was about 500 miles round trip to the sellers house not including miles to and from UHAUL. I logged well over 600 Miles in 24HRS to get this tractor. I left at 5 AM and did not finally get in and settled until about 8PM. It was non-stop.When I got to the sellers house in VT, I got stuck with the rear wheel drive Ford and the 2,000 pound trailer on the steep gravel drive.My first introduction to my new tractor, was the PO using it to push me in the truck and the trailer up the drive. It was awesome!Here I am at the Sellers House trying the tractor out for the first time.

This is the tractor after arriving at my house in MA.

This 12 X 6 trailer was packed to the gills, we had to remove the trailing mower and tuck it under the FEL. We just barely got the gate to close. It made for a nice tight stable ride though.

Here is the tractor in my garage, it takes up nearly a full half of the garage.

I want to thank the forum members for the feedback on my "What is this worth" post on the craigslist ad.I want to give a special thanks to both Michael and Mark Wells of Wells Implement in Nebraska for information on this tractor. I called Mark to ask him about this machine because I knew he was an AGCO Dealer in NE.The highlights of the tractor are:Hydro4 X 4Cat 125 HP Diesel647 HRSPower SteeringDealer Owned and ServicedBucket barely usedFully Serviced at 600 hoursNew retail in 2005 was $16,000 for this package

Nice machine, Jack! That will certainly be useful, AND extend the life of the 3112V at the same time! dOd

id="quote">Kent thanks for starting me off on the right foot with the 3112V.It now has back up around here, these two machines will compliment each other in use.They can both cut grass. I can use the loader to fill a trailer or cart, and pull it with the 3112.I can use the loader to break out the snow banks at the end of the drive, and use the 3112 to blow the snow on the rest of the drive.It is going to be fun putting it all together. :D
