    The S/N is 9874548. We purchased it and before we order the manual I was hopeful to find out the year. And if any one knows any tips. I’m used to tractors a little newer but excited to clean up and use a tractor that doesn’t have much of any technology. Thank you for input.

    Everything leaks off. Not just one 1 outrigger, boom or front bucket. The front bucket, outriggers, boom, everything. It did this from the time I bought it and was tolerable. It would take days for it to leak off enough that the boom would eventually touch the ground. Now it leaks off while...
