    Thanks John and Richard! Now I know where to get one cheap. My next question is this; I want to dig a trench to lay some pipe. My old Ferguson doesn't have down pressure on the three point hitch. Will I be able to cut through my hard packed dirt driveway with the middle buster?
    Thanks!
    Rich

    Rich,
    Angle it down as far as you can and get it with the top link to start cutting down. Unless it's like cement you should be able to get it to dig. Getting it started is the hard part. If you have to dig a hold to start it in and then go.

    Hawgee,

    GREAT link Thanks, never saw so darn many kinds of spuds in my life, guess growing up in Idaho stuck Russet in my brain (potato head).

    Thank Knight9 for the spud digger link.

    I'm also partial to little known or older apple flavors. Lots of guys back east keeping old apples on new root stock. Heritage types. That might sound funny coming from a guy who doesn't eat a Red Delicious. By the way, Ive been told Washington state out produces Idaho for spuds now.

    The point to all this. I think some still have a desire to use the compact tractor for food. As a hobby or whatever. It always tastes better if you do the homework.

    Last night's national news showed a square watermelon grown in Japan. <font color=red>$82.00 a piece.</font color=red>
    Food for thought. No rice tires needed. [img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img]
