Just be careful...hopefully you have some blocks or jack stands under there if you are going under...never know when the hydraulics might give out
- probably not an issue with that weight but I also try to center the weight on the loader- pretty easy to tweak the frame on small tractors by lifting off center

Yeah I blocked it off, and put stands under it. when you shut the tractor down the hyrdolic a will slowly lower about 3 Inches over a 45 minute period. Not crazy but glad I blocked it up

Guy wanted 7k but I talked him down to 5800. I had no idea these things were worth their weight in gold, even for a mid 80's 4x4 tractor. Been very useful for the short time ive had it.
