    Hope the pictures work. Expanding a turn around area for a friend. Still needs stone put in. I had to dig out 8 stumps and moved a lot of dirt.

    Default Re: What have you done with your tractor?

    Wow, in 35 years I've done most of what you all are doing without the nice kubota. Large gardens, many children to raise, ducks, dogs, 20 orchard trees, large strawberry beds, nice grape arbors, 200 seedling pine and cedars trees now grown to maturity, tons of gravel, dirt and rock moved. All of this done with a wheelbarrow, shovel and 8 HP rototiller. Then came the Case 448 after several years. Now that I'm 77 and there is nobody here but me, I've got this nice Kubota tractor and attachments that are just looking for something to do. Is that bass akwards or what?

    I got my 2320 in May, and so far I have...

    -Mowed grass (again, and again, again...)
    -Hauled debris from trimming a bunch of pines to our burn pile
    -Hauled away several tons of dirt and rock from the floor of the barn
    -Hauled in several tons of stone dust to replace said dirt and rocks
    -Augered 30-some post holes for split rail fence to split the single pasture into three pastures
    -Used it to haul tools around while installing said split rail fence

    But the scariest thing that I have done with it is try to teach my wife how to operate it. I think she is playing dumb just so she doesn't have to cut the grass.

    I have rebuilt my gravel driveway using a back blade and rake, about 300'. I have put in a drainage ditch with a swale at the end to contain the water with the rear blade, about 100'. I have rebuilt an area of my lawn with loader and rake, about a 1/4 acre. I have skid a few logs. Cleaned up several debris piles with the loader. I used it to unload attachments from the truck bed. I clear my drive of snow with the bucket and rear blade but, that's history....just bought a 3pt. snowblower.

    Purely residential type of work.

    I bought a BX2350 about 2 years ago, and thought I would use it for about 80% mowing, that hasn't been the case. I'd say about 50% of my hours have been mowing, the rest has been other stuff: dug out stump, cleaned out a ditch, spread about 100 tons of gravel, dug out for a swimming pool, use it to cut up and haul firewood, snow removal, brush hogging, grade a gravel driveway, haul brush and to generally intimadate the wild life and strangers

    @micky-- You did beautiful job clearing that turn around area. I wannn know how!

    Those look like some pretty good sized stumps, and they aren't tall enough to "push" over. How did you dig them out? It looks as if you only have a front end bucket to dig with. Seriously, I want details: How did you dig those bad boys out?

    I work in the woods so:
    Build and mantain woods roads and drainage
    Winch, skid, and load fire wood
    Ditto spruce, fir, and pine saw logs
    I have a 1 mile drive way and it snows here so:
    Clear door yard (Use truck plow for road)
    Move back snow banks
    Grade
    Regravel and clean ditches
    Chip road side brush and limbs
    Help my wife take care of her garden and berry bushes
    To many little things to mention
    Other things like:
    Use grapple for vice building grader
    Hang deer

    Getting dizzy thinking of all the stuff that I just do. Tractors are handy.

    I only exaggerate enough to compensate for being taken with a grain of salt.
