I have been anxiously waiting for about a month for my first tractor. Picked up a 2015 BX25D on the way to work this morning...longest Friday ever. Made it to the lake by 5:30 and was able to get 4 hours in before it was too dark. Installed my BXpanded thumb before it made it off the trailer and then put on the Piranha TB after trying the base bucket first. Unfortunately the MMM and grapple weren't installed, but I needed to get some work done so I took it for the weekend. First thing in the morning the Under Armor will go on with the Bro-Tek 2" rear spacers & steering guard / toolbox. I forgot to grasp the 3pt arms so won't get to try out the stabilizers Hodge built for me. Can't wait for dayLight to get back to the sandbox to work. Almost forgot the BXpanded ripper, stump removal tomorrow too.

Have a great night & thanks for all the help in deciding on the BX.

Thanks, very happy with the tool...no worries on finishing it all in a day. Have a 1000' drive to cut through the woods and many other projects I will surely invent to keep working / playing.

taking it easygoing the hard part, but will be worth it in the end. The 50 hour service is in sight...only 46 more hours to go.

The questions will be coming now that I have it to use and be confused:)

I did at least dig a hole yesterday with the hoe, can't find the pix.

Will take some using the ripper, Harry (BXpanded) sure makes high quality improvements. Pix to come

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome! Had a great day to work, now have 10.1 on the meter. A couple pix for you...sunrise and sunset at the lake with my BXpanded additions, first little stump (1 rip), and a water garden to collect run off in front of the camper.

Have a great day and no work till afternoon for me :(
