lots of "new to you" tractor threads, and folks getting firewood use out of em'...

rather than brag in someone else's thread, I'll drop this here...it's a good pic

a few weeks ago before the rains, my son and I were clearing a space to plant an english walnut
this is part of two hackberry limbs we took down...we also dropped a black walnut that had ice storm damage, and two HL's that had no business being in my yard
he's a good helper for a 4 yo

Sold the aging skid steer last fall, been looking for tractor like yours, that isn't beat to junk yet doesn't require a new mortgage to acquire. ( Well, I can dream can't I )Getting to the point of just ordering a new one( ouch!) Pro's and con's either way. I can write it off as a equipment capitol expense over x years, doesn't help much still got to pony up the green backs up front. Been procrastinating for several months now.

Don't log without one--love my Bob Cat front loader--worth every dime--pays for itself. The bigger the better--the small 'compact' tractors made by Kubota and John Deere might have the HP but are just too light and flimsy.

Glad I bought a bigger one--wish I had a backhoe!

I ended up selling my kubota 2850, what a great tractor that was. It was replaced by a bobcat cr335 with loader, backhoe, forks and a rake, so far so good, not sure I am going to like the additional weight and reduced clearance and r4 tires in the woods.

I lost my tractor pics in the great site-crash of '13. :( I'll try to update this summer.
Kubota B7500 w/ a bucket.
Nice haulers there guys. Be careful though. Stuff happens real fast with the small tractors, especially when you're front-loaded.
