    Default 3005 little tractor is great

    Love my new JD ! Has great power for anything i need to do. The round was so heavy it was impossible to roll on flat ground. Sure makes working on big jobs much easyier and fun. Tree was 109' and 78 years old, 49" at the base. Douglas fir. Should be about 4 cords Plus.

    They sure beat using a wheelbarrow.

    Now add a set of forks for the FEL and the iMatch on the 3 ph, with a hydraulic top arm.. So many things, so little time... hehe

    Already have the imatch, was wondering about the upper hydro arm. Was told by the dealer that i would have to use my FEL control to use it and wouldnt have up and down tilt on my bucket when using it, I would have to connect and reconnect hydro lines. Sounded like a pain so i passed.

    weeks ago, i inherited a bunch of
    maple that i had to cut/stack until

    but i had to move it all by hand

    Sure love burning maple, Besides Birch its very hot and ash is not bad, Thanks for the congrats, Packed my fair share by hand and man its a bit of work, The JD 3005 sure has been a time and money saver. Burns less fuel than my riding mower and does so much more.

    Nice tractor. I can attest to the 3005. Amazing how much work they can do.

    Next purchase is a finish mower, have a box blade rear scraper blade and posthole digger. Really a worthy investment. Normally my hobbies are expensive and don't give any joy but to me, my little tractor makes my wife happy to.

    Since you have an iMatch, you should consider a Frontier RFM. Deere/Frontier markets mowers made by Woods and BEFCO.
    I suggest you contact your salesguy and ask him to watch out for a used RFM. Your 3005 can handle a 72" RFM with no problem.

    When I bought my 4400, part of the deal was an 84" BEFCO RFM. Great mower, but too big for my needs. I contacted my local salesguy (same guy who sold me the 4400) to keep an eye out for a used 72" mower. That's how I got a little used 72" Frontier (actually a Woods mower) for considerably less then the new price.
