    Well, the BX25 Full Cage Rollbar is done. The
    last two pics show the new and improved
    Fire-Extinguisher mount.

    This is how we roll;

    Biased my opinion is but that is SWEET!

    She only has 50 hours on her, mostly as I built this and that,
    I'll take $37,000.00 for the tractor w/hoe and all my implements if
    anyone wants the best of the best. Over a year of warranty
    left on it. Bearcat chipper, BH, 60" KK Blade, QH+, Ripper, +++. HA!

    Otherwise IT IS MINE!

    Front receiver sandwiches grill guard and frame, plus
    the tube goes back to touch frame adding rigidity.

    Interesting concept the motor grader idea...I guess if
    your doing a lot of it, it would be very nice to have BCP.

    Truth of the matter is that every single one of us that ventures into the forest to skid trees should have a full roll cage on their machines. I don't and did logging for a living . I cannot tell you how many times trees or broken limbs slapped the skidders. Perhaps it is the nature of a big cumbersome woods beast such as a skidder to be prone to bump into things but several hitches scumbling against the same tree during repeated turns on the same route can loosen things up top sometimes. To those of us with no protection, keep a wary eye up top on your skidding routes.
    Artisan, I did the same thing to my tractor (JD 750) adding shims to the hydraulics and did not notice a huge difference. I should have used all five washers that came in the package instead of just the 4 I felt safer with. I pressured out to a little under 2300# with the 4 washers on a borrowed gage.

    Thanx for the input arrow.
    I wonder if anyone w/ a BX25 has shimmed to the max,
    and did everything hold up and does it still work ok...

    More GOODIES for my BX25!

    After a lot of thought, I decided to purchase one of Harrys skid plates,
    or as he calls it, "Under Armor" for my tractor. Next spring I will be doing some
    real jungle crashing / land clearing and I will need it. I will post pictures
    when complete. I would jump on it now but I have something much bigger and
    pressing I am dealing with, willingly...stay tuned.

    Here is a link to the BxPanded website...
