    Slap my hand for sending one to a kubota site!

    http:// http://www.carverequipment.com/Tips/tips.htm

    You can't beat Steve for a wonderful site full of useful information and good pix's. [img]/w3tcompact/icons/cool.gif[/img]
    If we could just talk him into more info on the toys we hang on these mighty machine's???

    Every day goes by and I find something that was not there yesterday. Next time it might be a web site with nothing but black and white photo's. (with a touch of blue?) [img]/w3tcompact/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

    I'd go for all the attachments one can afford, only to be stuck with having to build a larger spot of roof to protect them all. Will the work ever stop? [img]/w3tcompact/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

    Gordon, all I know about "html" is what those letters stand for; I still don't know how to use it, but now Muhammad's "Markup" works pretty well for me.[img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    Yea Bird it stands for hotel motel right? The only thing I know about it is the markup words but the url is great and a very handy item. Like I said I'm just learning myself and the learning curve can be pretty steep for me at times!!![img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img]
    That is the nice thing about the human brain it can always learn something new and stem out from there. The good thing is I took a year of typing in school. I wish that I would have taken the time to learn grammar and spelling as well.

    Take a look at www.easternfarmmachinery.com they sell pretty much everything. It will give you an idea of pricing too.

    Try this one instead:

    http://www.carverequipment.com/Tips/tips.htm

    It is a tutorial for new tractor buyers and owners.

    I would suggest before the tiller using a heavy disk or turning plow to break up the probably compacted soil. After that the tiller would create a fine seed bed. If you use the tiller first to me it is a really slow go. You can then drag with a variety of homemade implements already listed. Hope this helps

    Bird wrote ..."If you type "url" in brackets before the URL and "/url" in brackets after it, then it can just be clicked on to go to it, but otherwise the reader has to type it into the address bar "
    I guess it depends on how you're viewing the posts. Since Muhammad so generously sends out the days posts via email ... I have no problem at all seeing the URL as a hyperlink.
    Unfortunately, it depends on your browser, settings, security and good ole wonderful windoze ... getting everything coexisting so that the hyperlinks do work properly.
    If you thing HTML is bad ... pity those of us working on standards for XML
    (HTML = Hypertext Markup Language .. son of SGML Standard General Markup Language) ... (XML is son of HTML ... eXtensible Markup Language ... trying to take over from HTML and EDI too)
    ok ... that's enough acronyms for one day!!!

    too bad that common sense ain't

    Default Re: What Implements rate the highest

    I think most people have a boxblade and a blade maybe a rake. Then there are other people who have many choices to do a given job.
    Here is the QUESTION---Rate your implements from one to ten with one being lowest use and or functionality to ten being the best thing since sliced bread.
    This will be different for many people because of the varied uses and sizes of tractors.

    1. Brush hog - have mowed my pasture every 2-3 weeks this spring and the bermuda grass has really had a chance to take off. THis is the reason I bought a tractor.
    2. Rototiller - Tried to level ground with grass in it with box blade and scarifiers, didn't work. Got a rototiller and a drag, no more problem.
    3. Box blade - Required. Upgraded from a cheap Brand-x model to a Gannon, made all the difference in the world.
    4. FEL -- Comes in handy, not essential but really nice to have.
    That's my opinion this week. It will prbably be different next week when I am on a different project.
