Not to take this thread totally OT but I did some searching on this site on your older posts.... and viewed some of your photo adds on craigslist...

Anyway, I really like the looks of that Koyker loader you have. It looks a tad too big on that Super h, but looks like it would be an ideal fit on your M.

Have you give any thought to transferring the loader and the power steering from the Super h to the M? I would say transfer the live pump too, but sounds like that pump is slow, so maybe buy a better higher flow live pump and add that to the m. Then keep the m but still sell the super h and the all fuel h to help pay bills like one of your posts mentions.
The m would certainly be okay for plowing a driveway and would even use less fuel than that 656. The M is slightly shorter wheelbase being 4cyl over 656 being 6cyl so slightly more maneuverable too. M is much easier to work on if ever needed too. Some of the add-on 3 point hitches are pretty decent if you find a nice buy on one later (I put one on an h and love it). That said the $5250 price on the 656 seems pretty good too.

Thanks for the input. My original plan was to put the loader on the M. However, adding live hydraulics to it wont be much better than those on the SH, about 12GPM. Soo my thought was to buy a nice, big PTO pump to run the loader faster. Even if I do that, I still dont have power steering, live hydraulics, 3pt, wide front or a T/A which is handy on a loader tractor.

Ive found a nice 400 locally with power steering, wide front, 3pt, working T/A, live pto and hydraulics but it will take my H, M and $1000 to get. Although thats also a good deal, I dont have $1000 to spend on a tractor right now so Im left with trading for what I can get or just waiting. Either way works as I dont need the tractor asap.
