    X2.... You'll be amazed at how useful a grapple can be. If done properly it makes short work of small trees.

    If your planning on continuing in farming for a long time look into investing in a skid steer style quick attach What is Universal Skid Steer Quick Attach . This will allow you to "swap" expensive attachments for relatively low cost. Moving items between platform is so much lighter on the wallet. I'm planning on moving my $7,000 backhoe from my B7610 to my M4700. For a $200 bracket.

    Build up a spreadsheet of all the items you can think of and put in prices you find at B&M retailers, best online retailers, auctions, Craigs List for rapid reference.

    I was searching Craigs List one night for pallet racking and up popped a Stihl 088 chainsaw for $450. Easily valued at over $1,000, the guy had to get rid of it, I got it the next day. You might find a boom pole for $10 because someone had to clear out the garage.

    And for moving larger logs look for a log arch.
    My rides - '95 Kubota M4700 w/ PEC, LA1001 FEL :'07 B7610, LA352 FEL, Bush Hog SBX 48 box blade, '09 Woods BH70-X w/ 16" bucket and thumb, 3pt pallet forks, Dale Phillips PHD, Jinma 8" chipper, 2 Piranha's, Winco 12KW PTO generator, Howse plow, 5' KK tiller, 5' Big Bee cutter, with a 2002 7.3L Ford F350 CC DRW 4x4 and '07 18' Hudson HSE Deluxe trailer - 5 Ton to haul it all

    If you are mowing tall field grass you are probably producing "short" clippings, unless you are using a sickle bar or similar mower.
    Picking up short grass clippings is tough. We do this and use the clippings for mulch. I had zero luck with various rakes.
    The best way we have found is to suck them up with a Cyclone Rake.

    I second newbury's idea of getting a log arch for log handling. I'll be making one in the next few months.

    A set of pallet forks and some good, heavy pallets will prove surprisingly useful.
    That's the problem with trouble.
