    When people talk about whether or not to buy a cab I always tell them that I opted for an open station because I use the tractor in the woods as well as snow blowing. That usually gets replies of just cut the branches out of the way. I don't think people understand that you can't always cut everything out of the way. BTW I have lots of Beech and know exactly what you mean.

    I have learned the hard way from trying to run a tractor all through the woods. Now I make a tractor road. Then I use a winch and snatch blocks so I can keep the tractor on the road where it and me are relatively safe. Even with the dozer I have to be very careful. Especially with spring poles and standing dead stuff.
