Congrats on the new machine! I'm sure you'll love it.

Be sure to keep an eye on the rear wheel lug nut flange and keep those lug nuts tight! My dealer told me when they install a 48 hoe on a 4310/4410 they always reinforce that wheel flange to prevent the bolt holes from wallowing out. Not sure if your dealer did this or not but I figure if you keep the bolts tightened to spec you will avoid this issue entirely.

Ken, the dealer did tell me to keep an eye on the lugs, he said they do have a habit of loosening up. I will have to ask about reinforcing the flange though, thanks for the heads up!
Harvey, thanks, the ole' back and the ticker ain't what they used to be, and due to shoulder injuries it is getting harder and harder to bulldog attachments to hook onto the 3 point, thus the i match setup, Besides, with all the medical problems, it was like getting a note from the doctor, ordering me to buy this "back and heart saver"!!!! Even the wife thinks it's a good idea-- she even wrote the check Smile!!! Thanks all, Mike.

Mike, there's one other area to keep an eye on. The battery is in front of the radiator and on hot days it may outgas some. If if that happens the fan draws the gas through the rad and oil cooler which can lead to corrosion. You might ask your dealer for a new battery vent cap that vents through a tube that extends out the bottom of the tractor. The dealer gave me one which fixed that problem up just fine.

Thanks, Mike.

The battery issue is true of any brand that has it mounted in front of the radiator. NH and many others have it mounted in the same location. All machines have maintenance issues, and if they are ignored it can lead to problems.

Mike congratulations on a buying a fine machine. Nicely accessorized too I might add! ;o) Ken already mentioned to 2 main things to keep an eye on. Do you plan on doing the 50 hr. break in service yourself? Anyhow, enjoy! Definitiely a back and heart saver!

Thanks Chief, I think I will have the dealer do the 50 hr. service. They are truly a great bunch of folks, and are extremely knowledgeable, always helpful, and almost always have the parts I need no matter how obscure! Yes I did get lots of bells and whistles too! Block and trans. heaters(wired to one plug), they welded a couple of hooks on the FEL bucket, and installed rearview mirrors. I had a switch put on the backup alarm because I will probably only need it at my neighbors house, they have small children. Mike.
