    Philippe, nobody will ever accuse you of being lazy. Wow! You are working yourself and your tractor hard. You have some beautiful equipment to help with your beautiful property. It's turning into a showplace.

    I had put off bush hogging the farm because of our 100deg temps and high humidity so as fate would have it I left the house yesterday morning on my tractor to drive the 5 miles to the farm to bush hog ...I froze...LOL...It was in the 50's and the sun was not hitting the road I traveled and I was in a short sleve shirt....anyway spent 8 hrs. bush hogging, it was grass and brush all was over the hood of the tractor and some brush was 6 feet high...I still have another good 8 hrs to go. I was glad I have a FEL....had some limbs that had been blown down in the storm and easily just moved them out of the way and while bush hogging one long cedar limb was hiding in the high grass and I heard something and stopped the tractor and that cedar limb had jammed itself under the tractor and up under the PTO shaft and running clear across the top of the mower deck and extending out 5 ft. on the back of the mower deck and 5 ft. out in front of the tractor and here I am with no tools....what to do ? It would not budge so I had an Ah Hah ! moment and got back on the tractor and put the bucket on the FEL into the full dump position and dropped it down on top of the wedged limb and put the tractor in reverse and then worked the bucket from back to front until I had pulled the whole limb out ...I would not want to bush hog without an FEL...In fact I would always want an FEL..

    Yes i was....i have brush-hogged the field many times before so i knew it pretty well. Also the brush was very low (about 4-6 inches) so i kept it in high and blew through it. I was doing about 5-6 MPH i think. i probably could have done it alot faster with my 4320 and the 6ft rotary cutter.

    Burning is forbidden in the summer to avoid setting the countryside ablaze but allowed the rest of the year. They collect grass and small branches at special places, but above 5 centimetre diameter there is no other way.

    This is not quite true, I go through periods of activity and periods of inaction. For instance, today we had rain at last and I spent the day inside, settling bills and doing paper work at a very leisurely rythm.

    Plus in France you are not allowed to work more than a 4 day week and 30 hours or so...is that correct ?

    Put on the sickle bar which is my only pain in the neck impliment. Takes me an hour to get it on, adjust it the way I like it and grease/oil it up. Ran down the side of the road a way then cut a small field/wild apple orchard that I cut once a year. The new grass will bring turkey and deer. Tomorrow I will cut the bigger field.
