Pulled some down wood out this afternoon. Let’s see your botas at work.
Skidding this morning.
Haven't gotten wood yet, but soon......
Dosent have to be firewood related. Very versitle machines! I’m interested to see what folks do!
I like! Man i wish i had some space for a wee tractor! Nice flix anyhow fellas!
How do you keep your tractors so clean and nice looking? Mine looks like it has been clobbered for 20 years by a stick of pulpwood?
Oh wait it has, never mind!
Obviously teasing, but like Warner said, it is interesting to see what others do with their tractors.
First picture is
Getting some stovewood out of the shed. Second picture, Granddaughter getting the feel for the new Kubota. Next running a few logs over to the Amish sawmill up the road. Using the grapple to load some logs. Using the grapple to move some brush and make piles.I think the order of my pictures got a little messed up but you get the idea.
I know what you mean here is a pic of mine from a couple years ago it hasn't changed still runs good.
LodgedTree, luckily I have enough buildings to keep my equipment out of the weather most of the time.
I see we are a lot alike...even down to the same Fransgard 2800 winch!
A few years I go I was logging Hemlock Logs with my Kubota tractor and true to my name I lodged a tree up. I went to push it over with the tractor but pushed against the outer corner of the bucket...did it a 1000 times before, and it crinkled the whole bucket back! I mean it twisted it. I got some of the twist out, but it still is not right and I really need a new bucket, but it is hard to buy one when the one you got works, just is horrid looking.
The sad thing is, I do too. (But in fairness my Kubota is 20 years old too).
Most of these are mine. The first picture I'd just unloaded another load of walnut a neighbor gave me. Second picture I was bringing some wood to the porch. Got it partly unloaded before I thought about the camera.
Here, I had cut a dead pine and was hauling it out. Next picture was a neighbor taking out a red oak that was actually by our barn.
First picture here again is the neighbor. Second picture I was stacking some wood.
More wood stacking. The tractor stuck looks like mine but was actually chipper1 tractor at our GTG last spring.
A few more pictures.
I got a few...
One about to do some forestry work, and another one keeping things in perspective.
Went out today, dug out rounds from a popple tree that came down, but got buried by snow. Brought that to the processing area along with splits that also got buried over to the stacking area.
The Kubota did this with ease.
More jobs. The tractor is a key tool here (scratch and sniff if you are not sure what this is!)
I'm pretty sure that's your tractor Dennis, it looks just like it .
Hope all is well up your way.
Cranking busy over here to the house.
Here's a few of mine playing.
Took some time to burn a bunch of brush this morning, still going. Wish i had forks or a grapple, but hand loading the bucket still better than dragging all that chit to where i burn. Time for lunch
