One thing that is a royal pain in the butt with the new holland is battery placement if it ever dies and you can't get enough juice tostart it and raise the bucket. I had it happen to me twice with ours. the first time I had to get the battery close enough to hook it up and the second time my neighbor used the boom and hoist from his service truck to lift the boom to where we could latch it to get the side panel off. Changing a dead battery in that joker is not fun.

Pallet forks are the most-used attachment on ours.

Pallet forks are on the wishlist along with tracks and grapple bucket. Haven't had to much time to work it yet, it's been raining ever since it was delivered.

Did it come with the bolt-on teeth or did you add those?

Don, I had to add the teeth.

Can you tell me where you got them and how much they were? Did you need to drill for the side bolts?

The dealer put them on before they delivered it. I believe the holes were already there. I have a 6' bucket and the tooth bar was around $400. The tooth bar is heavier duty compared to a tooth bar for a tractor loader.

Thanks. I'll have to check my bucket for holes.
