    Re: Ice storm 2013 in Northern NY

    My pine trees gave up a lot of branches last night. If there's anything good to come of this, my new chipper will come in handy once the weather clears up.

    Re: Old style wire ripper

    There's nothing like this out there and I'm surprised I can't even find evidence of it on the internet. I don't care for the rippers on the market today because they're just not designed as well as...

    Re: I love my now Boomer

    Congratulations. Beautiful machine. One of the reasons I chose my tractor was the brakes on the left and the separate Hydro pedals on the right. I wish I could give away my cruise control because...

    Re: Attachment dolly

    Any time you can roll a 700 lb. attachment around with ease makes the effort and investment worthwhile. I'm glad I went with the 300 lb. capacity casters because I never have to worry about them...

    Re: Bucket vs. Snow Pusher

    That thing is cool. I have the same tractor and I'm surprised you can move that much snow with it all at once.

    Re: New Deere 54" 2 stage SnowBlower!!

    Nice setup. Nice building too. Hope we get a real winter so you can try it out.
  99. Re: Understanding all the brands and manufacturers

    You came to a good place for advice on what to buy. You mentioned needing something close to 3,000 lbs. My tractor weighs around 2,000 lbs. without attachments and I've had no problem doing some of...
