 RECENT 1070 PURCHASE

Recently purchased a 1998 JD 1070 with 440 loader and 8A backhoe with 300 hrs. Tractor used for cemetery excavation. Would like to purchase a cab and heater for winter snow removal. Is this a feasible option for my 1070 our should I have searched for a factory cab equiped unit? From what I have been reading on the message board I should be very pleased with my purchase. Could someone explain how the syncro-mesh transmission works or benefits over standard transmissions? Understand it is not a hydro! Last tractor purchased was a 332 diesel hydro. Use this L$G tractor for snowblowing. Works fairly well, but isn't heavy enough even with wheel weights for when the snow gets hard. I do realize that the 1070 will be a significant step up and am looking forward many years of service. Presently work in the electroncis industry but would like to have a tree nursery someday. Figured the 1070 would make an excellent tractor for this sort of work. Had been looking into a Bobcat but wanted to be able to engage ground breaking equipment. For I have a farm. Only one question and that is concerning tree spades. Would The 1070 be able to lift a tree spade and the dirt associated with moving trees, provided the root ball wasn't to big without damaging the loader or the tractor. I welcome any complaints, any information, or any comments. Thanks

 RECENT 1070 PURCHASE

I own a 1070 now, traded in my 950 for it. You will be pleased with the performance and quality of these tractors.The syncro allows you to change gears without having to come to a complete stop, I don't recommend going from forward to reversewithout stoping though. I tried to find a used backhoe for mine, but couldn't find one in my price range, so I ampresently building one of the Cadplans model 808 backhoe. Don't know anything about the spade you asked about.Hope you enjoy your's as much as I have. Good luck.
