    Default How to use attachments

    Does anyone know of a web site which describes the purpose of different attachments and how to properly use them. I have learned a lot about attachments reading tbn. Hopefully after I see what each is capable of I can narrow my wish list down. There are so many things I would like to do with my tractor but can only afford 2 or three new attachments.

    I'd say right here at TBN is probably your best source.
    Tell us what kind of tractor you have as well as what you want to do and we should be able to help.

    Ditto what bczoom says.

    What do you need to do?

    I consider a box blade as the 'swiss army knify' of tractor implements.. aside from a fel.

    And I'll ditto what Soundguy recommends.

    Except in winter, the FEL/box blade are what's on mine almost every day.

    Being up north, if you're going to use your tractor for snow removal, a scraper blade may be needed.

    cant say i own a boxblade, but our fel definatly is our swiss army knife of implements around here, i made a set of pallet forks for it outa an old forklift carriage a while back and since then i have only found more uses for it, the bucket has never been back on actualy in the past year or two, there havent been many dirt moving projects that needed to be done but i have had to unload pallets of trucks, or unload machinery, lift stuff with a chain on the forks, all sortsa things, even trimmed trees with the manbasket on the forks

    First, welcome to TBN! [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    I might suggest you post what you're looking to accomplish AND what your priorities are in those tasks and projects and then you can get some better, more focused suggestions.

    Meanwhile, if you have a burning urge to buy a couple thing, get yourself a steering wheel spinner. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] I laughed at those for years until I tried one and now can't imagine taking it off.

    If that's not a big enough expenditure for you (and you don't already have one), get yourself a toothbar for your loader bucket. I still believe that's the single best thing I've gotten in terms of increasing my tractor's utility and 'bang for the buck' since I got this machine. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    Thanks to everyone... I will make a small list of what I really want to do and repost this question with a photo or two of the area I want to work on as soon as I can take a few pictures. Steve

    Mark, you never sent me any pics of that big ole beast of a Ford, and now you've even taken it off your posts!!
    I miss it, bring it back!
    I agree that a toothbar is a great additon to any tractor's loader. Low-cost, high yield results. Not many of those available! John
