    Land clearing for house build, need some insite

    Mr. Darren, welcome to the forum! As Mr. Egon mentions, patience. I live in northern PA, and we may have shared in some of the same rain storms! 4.5 inches in the last 8 days. 2021 has been a terrible rainy summer...and the tractor is parked for the most part, because I don't want to rut all...

    Grapple versus Grape Vines

    Divide and conquer has worked for me...though some go 40 and 50 feet up into the trees. Multiflora roses can be tenacious also...and they actively search out and attack tractor operators! As many have said, once cut from the root, both will eventually let go of their stranglehold. I cleaned...

    Lynch Pins Coming Off

    Had run my 8' finish mower for the last year without any issues. With a guide wheel on each corner, a total of 4 lynch pins had been holding everything tight... Then, I read this thread! Sure enough, the next day while using the mower, I lifted it and one of the guide wheels fell out! Lost a...

    Trying to remove 50 inch oak tree stump with Bobcat backhoe. Struggling

    Funny observation! When I went back to look at the pic, it's almost as if the person was reduced in size and photo shopped into the scene. Without the person for perspective, it looks like a typical hole for digging around a 12 inch tree for push-over removal.

    Trying to remove 50 inch oak tree stump with Bobcat backhoe. Struggling

    Stumps can be hard, although can you cut it in half, else quarters with a chainsaw and lift it out? That may actually be faster, more effective than burning at this point.

    What else do you do with forks besides lift pallets?

    So you're saying pallets have started moving from fields into backyards??? They're getting closer...

    Kubota MX6000 FEL Not Raising - Resolved

    Not suggesting that every issue is related to a bad QDC, but rather, a basic component like a QDC might go bad, and to consider your situation to determine if you can easily isolate the cause, or at least narrow down the root issue. Might start by looking at your tractor's configuration to see...
