 Awesome experiance

I took delivery of the tc 40a this weekend and put her to work soon after. I have alot of you here to thank for helping me get it set up properly. THANK YOU ALL!
Got 11 hours on it. In those 11 hours we cut an 8 1/2 acre field, (weeds were not that thick or tall maybe a foot or so, less in some spots more in others) I played with trying to crown out the drive using my old back blade
along with the fell (did not get the box scraper yet) I done a pretty good job, not perfect but it definatley has a crown to it. While picking my older equipment out of tall grasses around my place (to put everything in the garage finally) I hooked up the 2 bottom plow. Well wouldnt you know it? I decided to practice. Plowed about
100 yards long by 60 feet wide area of 8 year old hay field. UNREAL, no problems at all, even pulling up rocks (some around 100 pounds!) I was amazed. When walking the plowed are latter I realized why every now and then I would feel a awefull bump, it was a few pretty large rocks that I was rolling around. Alos, I so glad I had 4wd. while bruch hogging the field I went off the main hay field to cut along the woods a bit. Well it is really soft and wet still (some areas the frost is just finishing coming out by the woods) Sunk het down fsat. Put her in 4wd and lifted the cutter and she walked right out!.
Question??? While plowing, is it best just to keep it in 4wd? It was too wet to really plow the whole field but not that bad, But it seemed like I needed 4wd I did not want to strain it so I was plowing in 4wd. Is that normal?
Anyway I am really happy with the tractor, cant wait to get back there with some new impliments and get some fiels going soon!

 Awesome experiance

Brokenarrow: Sounds like you had a great weekend. Most anytime you're pulling a heavy drawbar or 3pt. load use the 4wd., you won't hurt it, that's what it's for. during road transport or light mowing low draft type work turn the 4wd. off. Having the 4wd. off while mowing or other tight quarter work that doesn't require the extra traction makes tight turning lots easier. We must be kids at heart yet, I spent Sat, and Sunday after church with the 4310 and the hoe cleaning up old fencerow rocks and brush. We gotta be nuts, but sure seemed like fun to me. Just a note on the serious side please fasten your seatbelt and practice working safely, these are awsome machines, but we have to respect them. Frank.

Thanks harvey
Frank
Yes I caught myself twice without my belt on. I was just driving the field and the driveway blading, but I still should of had it on. I caught myself and am trying to make a mental note to myself to get in the habit of putting it on ALL the time. Also, can you believe it! I came within 1 foot of taking out my garage header already!!! I had stopped just before entering the door to make sure all was lined up and realized the ROPS were still up. I am putting a hangin sign up next weekend inside the door. Just like I figured it would happen, it looked like a storm may come in and was rushing to get things put away. I was shocked!!! But alls well that ends well I guess, maybe it will be a wake up call for me.
Thanks for the advice
