Smoking I have a small Kubota with industrial tires I get stuck alot or spin so wanted the AG tires. I will be using it mostly on bare yards grading and using a Harley take so I don't think ag tires will matter much. It has the hydro shuttle. Parker is who I deal with mostly. I am not really sure of the factory set up I had a long add on put on another tractor I had had a button on the joystick did fine for me. Are you going to the auction on the 20th?Should be a nice little tractor. I prefer the ind. tires on that size tractor. They give a little more stability and don’t tear up yards so bad. They handle the weight on the loader better also but to each their own. Hydro trans is nice but takes a lot of power away so you gotta add 10-15 HP to compensate. Will it have a hyrdo-shuttle or just a straight gear transmission? You dealing with Trey or Parker? Seems everybody has their favorite there.
On the third valve is the factory one set up as a true additional function that works on bi directional switch? I think the Long one is just a switch that takes your curl function and diverts it to the grapple. If I were going to use a grapple a lot it would be worth the money for the true third function. A lot of times you need to roll and grapple at the same time.
No they said it didn't come with it only thing I cared for was the grapple. Said was 2400 to add a set of remotesWe use a grapple on the jd 5085 with hoses ran to the rear remotes. Takes a little learning curve but once you got it it's not bad. Don't think sky's new toy has remotes so... just saying.
