One thing you should check is the bucket CNH specs for their radial lift machines. Check to see that it sits flat front to rear when the arms are lowered all the way down. The TV380 I used this past week left the back of the bucket 1.5" above the ground. That means your bucket is angled down when grading. It's a major pita.

That angle to bucket is reduced by changing the pucks out on the front of the machine. It likely had the 1.5" pucks or larger.

I thought that too, but there was no more than 1/4" clearance between the arms and the housing attachment points that hold the front end of the lift cylinders. With a 3/4" bolt on cutting edge and the arms all the way down, the back of the bucket was 1.5" minimum off the ground.

Finally got a price on a Kubota SVL75 w/cab. All I can say is wow. $7k more than the New Holland C232.

That $7k difference could get me a brush cutter and new root grapple.

Demoing a 2013 C238 this week. Fully loaded cab/AC all the bells and whistles. It had 67hrs on it. Seller is asking $45k.

It's at my local new holland dealer, the seller is a good guy I know personally and he only used it to do stuff around his property and had realized its way too much machine for his needs.
