Hello all, I've been lurking for quite some time so a quick intro is in order.

Got my first tractor about 8 months ago, so I only have about 80 hours of total tractor time.

My biggest regret about buying it is that I didn't buy it 30 years ago!!!

I can't believe how much fun "Tractor'n" is. It has opened up a whole new and fun world to me.

Although, it is difficult to tell which I like more, working with it, or working on it ( i.e. modifying it) either one puts a smile on my face.

Nice use of a jack being respectful of stored energy under the raised loader…Welcome.

Yea, hate to have that thing landing on my skull.

But have no fear, I do lots of other dumb stuff to make up for it. LOL

LOL.... My wife says that the sales guy "saw you coming from a mile away".

I just couldn't pass up 84 months at 0 percent.

Welcome. I hear you about it opening up a whole new fun world...as well as the wishing you got it years ago.

I got my BX about 3 years ago. One of the best purchases I have made. Saves time and my back. Amazing what I can get done with it.

Prior to the BX I had a regular rider. IT definitely wasn't up to the task.

You ain’t the only one, lol

Welcome to the forum and congrats on the purchase! The L2501 is an amazing tractor with TONS of potential!

Me thinks your wife is correct!
Please let me know where else I might borrow at 0 percent for 84 months.
I am thinking about buying a new Mercedes. :giggle:

I use a heavy section of angle iron on one of the loader rams to reduce the likelihood of having a loader or bucket come down on my when working around the front of the tractors. But that jack is a good idea.

Ever seen these? I’d like to see a set…not free but neither is a copay…look pretty simple/effective.

I haven't seen those but they're really nice and more secure than a piece of scrap angle! I think Kioti tractors come with safety guards from the factory that are similar to that.

Welcome and farkle away!
Never heard the term farkle used until I got back into riding motorcycles. Does the tractor community use it as well? Guess you just did, so yes.
And to the OP, welcome. Wish I would have bought mine sooner as well. Enjoy!
