Some possibilities: The time you backed into that tree, the time that you ran over a stump, the time that you hauled all those hay bales before dark, or the time you pulled your Wife's car out of a ditch and scratched the paint. Just a few.Thanks for listening.
    Or the first root I tore out? Thanks for posting .And the time I tore out the lights in the barn cause of my ROPS.

    I look at this way. We have all got a chore cote that we grab when there's work to do, not the one your wife got two years ago to replace it or the one you wear to work or out to eat, but the cote she got you for Christmas sixteen years ago. Sure its worn faded and has a stain or two on it, but it still fits and keeps you warm. Its like finding an old friend in the closet that is going to help start the kids car or clear snow.
    I think the new things in life are great but the things we have a history with are more meaningful So I suspect your kubota will be an old friend who's flaws will overlooked when called upon to do the task at hand.

    Here's mine after 10 years. She's had a little makeup over time though.

    Back in July I purchase a 2000 B7500. Here is what a 12+ year old tractor. It had 780 hours and now has 822. The previous owner apparently took very good care of it like I will.

    Great idea on the chop sticks!! I usually use a small flat tip screwdriver but the chop stick idea is safer to use.

    Tractors fortunately last a long time, that is quite a few hours and I bet it has lots left.

    one roof light down....hmmmm, wonder what I caught that on. Nice little shiny bits of plastic in the woods...oops
    Now I understand why someone said they didn't want to make a "highway" through their woods so they wouldn't get their tractor hung up.

    I learned the hard way it makes more sense to drag out logs instead of going in to get them. Once you get there, in heavy woods, turning around
    is challenging, especially with a wide log in the bucket/grapple. Those of you that have done this a while, or a long while, are probably thinking "of course", but
    like most things, I had to learn myself. And if all I break is a top light, ok.

    So I bought some extra chains and a nice long Smittybuilt tow strap, plus a big TimberTuff skidding tong, and hope to get some use out of them later this week, when
    everything has frozen up hard, and I can venture out without a mud fest.

    About 55 hours now on the kubota, all fun. Can't wait for more.
