I am so excited!! I purchased a 6018 a week or so ago from the original owner. I drove by it a few times and finally stopped to check it out. I have always wanted a FEL and backhoe (plan on adding one). I hope this is a good start. I have already managed to get stuck in my muddy back yard, but I seem to get everything stuck.

I am sure I will have a lot of questions as I learn about this tractor. It has the rototiller and homemade forks.

Thanks for the warm welcome! I have already learned a lot poking around this site. A set of tire chains are on the way so I can play around in the snow.

Very nice

Did it have a backhoe it has the wide rear and 20" front
It did not have a backhoe on it. According to the manual it has the tire size for the backhoe unit. The original owner said the backhoe was too expensive so he did not purchase it.

Great machine. You will really enjoy it.
Looks like a 1998 model or newer.

How many hours on the meter?
It has 419 hours...that is going to go up a LOT next summer as I have a lot of projects in mind

It is a 1999 or 2000 model I believe.

The backhoe is not an attachment option on these machines but is fully integrated into the frame and hydraulic system. Yours is the first 6018 I've seen that appears to have the tires that were standard on the backhoe model and that is a good thing because they have much better traction. I added a backhoe to my 6018 and can help you think through the options when you get to that point.
