    Default help on proper attachments

    I have kubota 4610 HSTC on holding status now deciding on implements. I already have an old beat up, rusty, noisy, Grass King 60 " brush cutter, a toothless, rusty box blade in same condition that doesnt' seem to do anything to level ground, and an El Cheapo TSC regular blade.
    I was wondering what the group's opionions were on what I should try to get now with the new tractor. I guess I could wait until spring for a new brush cutter but it sure would be nice to have everything purchased now.
    If I have app. $4-5, 000 to spend, have app. 60 acres, mostly wooded and about 50% too steep for tractor. Need roadwork, occasional snow removal, large vegetable/pumpkin patch gardening, small Christmas tree acreage, general clean up of woods, landscaping on small scale, occasionaly mowing for myself and neighbors
    any suggestsions?

    You got the front end loader also, correct? How about a Bush Hog rear blade? I just scrolled thru my pics, couldn't find a decent pic. Get one later if you want it.

    Roadwork and landscaping - FEL, box scraper and a landscape rake.

    Snow removal - use the existing back blade. Although where I live I need serios snow removal - rear mounted 78" blower. It's great to go all winter with -0- snow banks, and not have the driveway be reduced to an 8' lane.

    Occassional mowing - depends on the condition of the fields. I use a rider around the house, hay the fron 20 acres and brushhog the remainder.

    Gardening - it may be cheaper to rent a tiller. My 72" cost 1200+. But I do a fair amount of landscaping/pasture reclaimation/gardening.

    Yes, i got the LA852 loader on it. Will have the regular bucket that comes with that loader and also the 4n1 bucket.
    Will not have top n tilt at this point, but will have two remoted hydraulics on it. Was thinking about the Landpride 3572 72" one as it has tilt options on it, how much more for blade with hydraulic on it?
    how much use normally in landscaping would a landscape rake be used if you already had a blade? just wondering.not
    not sure I need a snowblower, only have a few big snows in Jan or Feb here but could be used for local stores in town maybe.
    what about a winch? have a lot of dead trees, big brush, bulldozer pile-ups that need cleaning. Would the Farmi winch be over-kill?

    For your garden and pumpkin patch, I too would recomend a tiller, or a plow and a disk.

    I bought a 60" TSC King Kutter tiller that does a great job, for $999.

    Good luck, and don't forget to post some pictures of your new tractor and goodies[img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img].

    You wrote <font color=blue>would a farmi be overkill</font color=blue>

    In my opinion no it would not be overkill at all. It would be a good investment, considering that alot of your land is steep and hard to access with a tractor. But it would put a big dent in your 3 pt buying at this point.

    The 35 series blade is very heavy duty. I would go with the 84 instead of the 72. That way when you angle the blade the tractor tracks are still covered. You can add hydraulic cylinders to it down the road if you like as well.

    The <font color=orange>kubota </font color=orange> tiller can be offset 8". With 60.5 tread width on a 4160 you should be able to cover your tire tracks. I was at a dealer near Toledo OH. that had a used one for $1800. It was in as good shape as the one I bought. His had no warranty. The one I purchased has a full 1 year warranty. Not that I will need it. [img]/w3tcompact/icons/tongue.gif[/img] But when the price is the same go with the most. Plus my dealer delivered it to me. [img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img]
    Yes the RB3572 can be offset with a cylinder. I purchased cylinder from Northern Tool. Installed my own hoses. Checkout Land-Pride site for more information and their manuals.
