Wondering if anyone has performed a turbo upfit-upgrade on one of these?
I think the boost would come in handy with my front snowblower on my hilly driveway. It is a interim tier 4 without the catalytic converter and dpmf.
Thanks

I’m not familiar with your tractor or engine. Is it a simple mechanical diesel or is it electronic computer controlled? If mechanical, a turbo can be added without too much trouble. If electronic, as of this posting, I’m unaware of anyone offering ECM ‘tunes’ that would be necessary to control fuel for that setup.

Yes you can bolt a turbo on it, but you'll need to rework the fuel injection pump to get anything out of it.
