Nice tractor!

Direction obviously all depends on the setup - I brought my MX5400 home from the dealership with a borrowed 16' trailer. Pulling on facing forward had the back of the truck nearly airborne. Between filled rear tires and the box blade, the weight behind the axles on the trailer would've made it impossible to drive. I backed on and all was well.

with a canopy dont you have to load it backwards so the wind doesn’t take it? How much does that load weigh? Can’t be more than 40-50% of what that beast of a Ford can tow Eh?

With my other tractor that also had a canopy, I would place the rear tractor tires (Loaded tires, weighed 4500lbs) between the trailer axels. I towed 100s of miles and had no canopy issues. The 4760 with loader and tires loaded weighs 4500lbs. Not sure on loader w/bucket weight but I guestimate 1500lbs, so 6000lbs and add 700lbs for 4 in 1 bucket. Around 6700lbs all together. The truck had no problems with the tongue weight, the trailer was the problem. Putting that much weight that far ahead of the trailer suspension made the trailer feel like it was going to tip over. I was towing 40 miles at 50 mph but if I was going further and at freeway speeds I would have spun it around. When I got home I did unload everything and loaded up the tractor again and confirmed the improvements in trailer stability.

My B2601 loaded on the dealer's trailer with another tractor to come to my place tomorrow!

They have got the grapple and bucket I ordered at the front of the loader; the back of the truck has my snow blade. My other options are wheel spacers, filled rears, and additional front hydraulic.

Homecoming trip. Just upgraded from a BX2680 to a B2650 with an RCR1860. Makes my 18' trailer seem really small. Time to swap out to a set of removable ramps instead of the attached ones. Had to remove the wheel from the mower.

It would be interesting to hear (ok, read) why you upgraded to a larger tractor with the same power.
Oh, and congrats!

Thank you.
Same basic HP yes but it is a 1.0 vs a 1.3L with what feels like a much better lift capacity. For what I was using it for I wanted the higher ground clearance and larger lift capacity. The front axel on the BX has really low ground clearance. Using the same pusher on both tractors the B2650 with 3 speed trans feels far stronger. I haven't gotten to use it on a real storm yet but can already feel the difference. Plus I always wanted the 2650 but originally ended up with the BX. I went big as I can within reason and still have the option of a mid pto.

Thanks. Lots of new buyers concentrate on horsepower and lose track of ground clearance, lift capacity, lift height, tire size, etc.

Thinking of buying a tilt 7x20’ trailer for my kubota ... see a variety of choices out there and wondering if this is best value at 5400$? Plan to carry the FEL bucket With grapple and the backhoe... So by my calc I’ll need all of the 20’
