I need a tractor to leave at a farm a few miles away from the home farm. It will only be used to move bales. I have a chance to buy a D17 narrow front gas and was wondering if this tractor will work for me? Is it heavy enough on the front to handle 1000-1200 lb bales? It's a series 4, so it has a 3-point. I know the guy who owns it and it has been babied for years.
What about cold weather starting?
