Nice!! Looks to be similar in size to our 1970s 830, but a lot more
power, 4x4 plus a front loader! We've got an old Ford (8N?) front loader
but its pretty crappy. One of these days I want to get a backhoe - if
we had one all along, it could have paid for itself many times over by

Mike beat me to the basement comment. ;-) A guy down the street from
us actually used his front loader to dig himself a basement.

One accessory you might want to keep an eye out for is a set of forks
for that front loader. Pretty handy for taking deliveries off a semi
or stacking heavy stuff.

Congrats again, looks like a great score!
