CampHamp Posted December 11, 2021 Share Posted December 11, 2021 Hey folks. I've verbally landed a 2020 Defender Pro XT HD10 which has only 34 miles and I pick it up on Tuesday. It comes with a Boss plow with hydraulic lift and direction. $19K. I'm looking forward to discussing these machines with you all! I plow a few driveways and I haul lots of firewood for heating and making maple syrup. It'll be 100% a work machine. I'm replacing my Yamaha Rhino 660 (2004) that still runs fine. This will be a whole new experience in terms of size and power. The bed is up high - a bit of tough lift to fill it up. I wonder if I will still tow a trailer for wood so I can work down low. I may need to widen some trails. I do some gravel work for a long driveway, so tractor dumping into the bed will be great. We'll see... I didn't know how valuable a tractor would be until after I got it and this may be the same deal. I may love it, but maybe it will be too big for forest work. I figure that since I got a decent price I should be able to sell if need be. It will be a 'no warranty' purchase and I want to be careful it isn't a lemon. I'm thinking that I should drive it around in high, low, test the drive modes and all the 4WD/diff lock options. Probably I'll check oil level to ensure they didn't neglect it, run the plow movements and check tires for repair. It would be great to hear from you all, with Defender experience, about what other things that I should look and listen for before I hand over the check. Thanks, in advance for any info you might offer! 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
