    Default Re: Your Dream Attachments List

    Whatever I want that exists (tree spade, aerator, blade, hoe, FEL, chipper, box blade, auger, tiller, cement mixer) I have, and they work fine. What I don't have are two attachments that don't exist.

    1. A swale-cutter that will dig a gentle channel to direct runoff. Picture a rear scoop. Instead of a flat biting edge, it's a shallow "V" to cut the swale. Instead of two side-walls and a rear wall to hold the scrapings for relocation, the inside shape flows the scrapings over and out the two sides. It should have provisions for holding weights, as most rear hitches don't have power-down. One pass and the swale is done. (Could be accomplished with a box-blade set at an angle, but even that would require two passes and a lot of adjustments.)

    2. Leaf vacuum. Picture a Billy-Goat-type vacuum driven by the PTO and mounted on the rear hitch. A flex tube carries the debris up and forward to a fixed frame over the front bucket. Curtain-screens on the frame release the outflow air while the debris falls into the bucket. You drive forward or rearward, adjusting the intake height with the hitch, sucking up the leaves. When the bucket is full, you drive to the pile, lower the bucket to clear the curtain frame, and dump.

    Default Re: Your Dream Attachments List

    I didn't read all the posts from 2011 onward. I have a Mahindra Max 25 with an FEL, MMM and backhoe. My only added attachments would be a box blade to do my driveway; a pair of palette forks to move some stuff that is over sized for the FEL.

    The dream list would include a tiller in case I ever had a need to put in a garden.

    Default Re: Your Dream Attachments List

    I have a 1981 Ford 4600 diesel tractor 46HP engine, 52HP PTO. It already has a FEL so I am good there. I am in Canada, so rear tire chains would be nice. Also I would like rear auxiliary hydraulic outlets so that I can run 3PH attachments that require hydraulics. I would also like to upgrade the hydraulic pump since it is only 8.5 GPM @ 2100 PSI. I really don't know if you can put a higher GPM pump in this tractor or not. If you know please reply. I would also like to have a cab but would settle for ROPS with a canopy. Also I would like to get a new instrument cluster, new seat, and some lights for the rear.
    I have about 200 acres that is mostly woodland and I am in the process of slowly converting some of it to farmland.
    For the bigger fun attachments, I would like to have:
    - turbo saw with grapple
    - post hole digger
    - tooth bar
    - brush grapple
    - 3PH backhoe
    - pulp loader for my existing power trailer
    - 3PH logging winch
    - 2 or 3 furrow plow
    - 3PH 8" WoodChipper
    - manure spreader
    - lime spreader (I assume they make such a thing)
    - 3PH stump grinder
    It's nice to dream!

    I think your engine has a little more than 46hp!

    My dream list off the top of my head would include:

    A larger tractor with cab
    A 3 point hitch logging grapple
    A heavy duty 3 point hitch pull behind (inverted) snowblower
    A turbo saw
    A Split-Fire log splitter
    A heavy duty landplane grader blade
    A Brown Tree Cutter for my larger dream tractor

    That's it for now. Sheesh, and I thought I already had almost all my dream attachments

    Kubota L3400 DT

    Default Re: Your Dream Attachments List

    I have a kubota L3400 DT tractor, with logging winch. I use it a lot to haul out firewood and logs. One big thing I'd like to have is a 300 lb. ballast transfer set up, so when I go in the woods empty I have 300 lbs. on the back, then when I have all the log hooked up, I can transfer the 300 lbs. to the front bucket so the front end will stay down, The way I do it now is cut up a half dozen stick of firewood and put them in the bucket, or in the sometime I try to scoop up a bucket of dirt in very hard rocky ground.
    The other thing that would be handy for me is a 3rd arm on the bucket so I can grab hold of a log and put it on the saw mill. I wonder how much $ that would be, and will I still be able to scoop up dirt with it on?

    Yeah, I think your right, it wouldn't make sense that the engine would be less than the PTO. The guy I bought it from said it was 58 or 59 HP, he wasn't sure. I got that 46 HP stat off a website as I was unable to find it anywhere else. But yes, it doesn't make any sense that it would be 46. I'll see if I can find the right HP.

    I should have responded early in this thread before I start to read the other posts and say "oh yeah, I need one of those too".

    Anyway:

    3 pt chipper/shreader
    extra remotes
    tooth bar
    box blade
    backhoe
    snow blade w/QA or 3pt back blade
    3 pt post hole digger

    and other related items:

    the barn to put them in
    arc welder to build some of them with

    Oh, man, the editor has to keep poking us about what we still "need"! Since I upgraded tractors this year, I "need":

    Snowblower, 54" clearing width, front PTO kit (getting Nov. 9th)
    Winter Cab with heater! (miss my old one)
    Tiller - still shopping
    Rotary Broom - retrofit my leftover 445 JD 52"
    Tooth bar for bucket (already bought tines)

    I "want":

    Wood chipper/shredder, rear PTO
    Log spliiter, 3 pt. hitch.

    Now all I have to do is finagle financing.
