The MX is a significantly larger framed tractor and heavier than yours. It will more safely handle the full lift capacity of the tractor if properly ballasted.thanks, all of your points are valid. The only reason I am hesitant on the mx 6000 is that the loader capacity is not significantly more than my 3535 and the same is true with the 3pt capacity also. as far as the hp it is obviously a significant increase. I just wt to make sure make the right choice when ipu the trigger.
