    Don't have a clue where you live. But if it's within practical transport distance, you're welcome to borrow my 74" flail anytime. I do think however, that it might be a bit too much mower for a L2800. So an alternative would be to mount it behind my John Deere and cut a few swaths out in my pasture.

    With a flail that big it would be hard to tell who is driving who.

    Great suggestions for the back end, but what are you gonna do with all those saplings/brush after mowing them over?

    Depending on your lift capacity, I (among almost EVERYONE else that has one) would highly recommend a lightweight grapple for helping move the slash. You'd hardly ever use your standard bucket if you had a grapple

    There's been a lot of talk about the 48" econo model from Wildkat lately, might be worth looking into.

    This is a great starter list. After changing out to all 3 implements in one day you will appreciate a quick hitch. A time and energy saver. For the garden I like to use a "hiller" - that is a tool bar with discs that push your freshly tilled dirt into a nice raised row.

    I'll look into the grapple but I was looking into a rake since i pretty much set fire to the piggy bank with the others I'm picking up today. The "Hiller" is the final attatchment I was trying to find. This was the final out the door list being picked up today. Tiller: RTR 1260 Landpride. RCR 1860 Rotary Cutter Landpride, one row Cultivator and a new Trailer to carry it all.

    For your garden, check into buying a "keulavator" from Agri Supply. You can buy big discs to attach to it to make raised rows. You can also buy little cultivator plows to keep the between rows weed free.

Ive decided to spend time preparing the property over the next few seasons before I invest in a high dollar finish mower that would not help reclaim the property. I have plenty of time just not enough money for equipment that doesn't work as needed or that I have not reached that phase in progress to properly utilize. Now I will try out a Flail that anyone has and believes in any time. After pricing them I could get a finnish mower and a brush hog with money still in my pocket for the price of a flail. I like all in one equipment but I'm going to stick with the tried and true designed for specific job equipment. Thank you for all the experience that you all lent to me. I'm sure I'll be back.
    You will like the RCR1860. I have had one for five years now. It's a very good rotary cutter.
    I used to do the Hokey Pokey but I turned myself around.

    I absolutely don't dispute the usefulness of a grapple for reclaiming land, however give the OP's budget I think a set of forks for the loader would work for now. I would bet that he doesn't have any extra hyd remotes, which will also add to the cost.

    A set of forks can be used for carrying logs, brush, stumps, rocks, etc. Also great around the farm and construction site for many jobs. For handling brush I have an extra set of tines I put on mine so it has 4 'forks' instead of two. Makes it easier to pick up finer piles of brush. Nothing like a grapple, but it also only cost $500.

    Another attachment you might want to check out is the Garden Package from Stevens Tractor. This is what I plan on purchasing for my garden before spring.
