I use mine all the time, almost to a fault.
Mine doesn't dig well at all.
To name a few things I've used mine for:
pushing and piling snow, moving engines, trans axles
ect from one place to another,
moved 15 tons of dry clay from a pile and put it in horse shoe pits at the local county park.
The list is endless.
For me, mine is very much a tool that I use nearly every day.
My loader is on a 18 AUTO and I feel it has done no harm to the tractor at all.
With the angle iron frame tractors, I would be sure to use common sense in how heavy of a load I hauled at a given time.
Just my experience........ :banghead:
