I will also agree with what an animal those machines are backed into an amish customer with a load of larch for his mill about this time of year and as i was unloading the frost gave way and the truck sank to the axles yup all of them the steers were still up and he says i can pull you out with my skid steer kind of chuckled and called a buddy for help. He comes roarin up with his machine 12" axle extensions, tractor tires and chained up , he had picked up a pallet of fence posts for extra weight that thing just squatted and pulled me out like something ive never seen before amazing said it handles 2 ton all the time

2 ton is nothing for a 9 series. That machine is "rated" for 3700 which i believe is 50% of tip load, so 7400lbs tip which means someone good can probably toe walk 4 ton or so. They ride smooth on 2 wheels and dont tear the ground up either.

Belive it or not for such a heavy machine it's light on the ground.
Makes less of a foot print than the 873 I was borrowing.
And the yard is soft.

I have an older 1993 742 with a mitsubishi propane engine,and it has run 7 years for me. I had to do a head gasket and new radiator, but it just runs and runs. I wish it could lift more.

Must be a keeper if you already named it. Do you like the fork grapple? I am looking at grapple buckets now.

Tacks Y,
Yes I like the fork grapple around the mill yard.
It works good for what I do. 
I would also like a root grapple they work great for clean up jobs.
My friend has one.

The only issue so far is my other sae quick attach stuff won't fit the quick attach. 
I will have to find someone to make a blank plate then have a sae quick attach welded to it.
I can't find anything all ready built.

Great name. "Big Bob"
Can you post a pic of the fork grapple and the name of it. I really need one at my bush yard, it is very rough terrain.

I'm getting a very strong smell of raw fuel when starting.
When cold starting
It that a glow plug issue ?
Or injectors ?
It runs great otherwise 
Thanks Bruno

Easy stuff first. If it's going away as it warms up take a look for wet spots right after you start it. Look around the filter and the lines, check that all the joints are tight , than go from there
I believe in the hereafter, because every time I take two steps into the tool crib to get something I wonder " what did I come in here after"

If nothing else I'm always a good last resort or the guy to hold up as a bad example

If the smell is coming from the exhaust after it's been sitting a while I'm going to go with leaky injector('s).
