    100hp Tractor for 240 acres. M6? 5711? 5115M?

    I run several pieces of Kubota construction equipment and am beyond satisfied with them and the dealer. Also have an M7040 which has been rock solid for years. Thought a Kubota tractor would be a no questions answer. The more I’m looking at it though… I don’t know how to justify an M5 cover a...

    100hp Tractor for 240 acres. M6? 5711? 5115M?

    So I have a fair bit of equipment experience. I own multiple pieces of construction equipment we run for our business. I have a 70hp Kubota at the home farm. I collect Massey Harris and Oliver tractors. I own a steam engine. That kind of thing. Tree lines are all being trimmed back with the...

    100hp Tractor for 240 acres. M6? 5711? 5115M?

    We have good Kubota, Massey, Deere and CNH support. I’ve never seen a Fendt dealer around here.

    100hp Tractor for 240 acres. M6? 5711? 5115M?

    I was just quoted $91k for a loaded 5711D. That may very well be where I go.

    100hp Tractor for 240 acres. M6? 5711? 5115M?

    Agreed, but ultra low hour used machines are not out of the consideration either.

    100hp Tractor for 240 acres. M6? 5711? 5115M?

    Hoping for some advice and opinions on selecting a tractor. Have about 240 acres that has been pretty woefully neglected over several years. Want to get it whipped up into better shape over the next three years. Regrade and maintain approximately 5 miles of dirt/gravel roads on the property...

    Gravel driveway maintenance - best SKIDSTEER option?

    I think I may have found the best option for my application and situation. Diggin-It should appreciate this. This is NOT my picture, just a random from the internet. Now, this will give me some versatility. I have an 8’ grader blade with a hydraulically adjustable tilt, angle, height and...

    BushHog Brand Land Plane/Leveler?

    I have an 84” Bush Hog branded land plane. Works great. Only thing I wound up doing was drilling out the pin holes for the 3pt to match my Cat 2 tractor. I prefer not having any bushings to deal with. Get a hydraulic top-link. Night and day difference. Seems like you cannot a little down...

    Gravel driveway maintenance - best SKIDSTEER option?

    I believe it is fairly universally agreed that a LPGS is the ideal implement for gravel driveway maintenance behind a tractor. I am another pretty firmly believes this to be true. How about on the front of a skidsteer? I have a 3/4 mile driveway and another 1/2 mile driveway. Seems the problem...

    New SVL75

    I do not know when they came out with Hi-Flow. Maybe it was when they went to the 75-2 designation? I would have liked a 95, but it is too physically large to comfortably fit into my barn and scrape out critter pens. I also considered the 65 with hi-flow but decided the little bit extra lift...

    Just purchased a new SVL75 with cab and hi-flow hydraulics. Could not be any happier with the decision.

    Anyone own a 5711 in central NC?

    Interested in getting a 5711 or similar. Problem is I can not find a dealer with one in stock. I would sure like to take an actual in person look before purchasing one. Does anyone have one somewhat nearby that they would be willing to show me?

    Thinking of down sizing and adding a skid steer. Opinions?

    We have a 33 acre mini farm in NC that we purchased late last year. I did a lot of considering and decided on our M7040. 2/3 are sparsely wooded and open pasture, easy to drive tractor through. 1/3 is extremely densely wooded and not tractor-friendly. We have pasture mowing to do occasionally...

    Going to look at a Bobcat 773 with 1700 hours. What to look for?

    Title says it all really. Going to heck out a 773 Bobcat that someone has for sale. It has 1700 hours and appears to be in good shape. The owner is pretty close by to me and claims he is second owner. Said it was used to clean up a farm before him and then stuff around his property. He is asking...

    Anyone seen a new M4 series tractor yet?

    Has anyone seen one of the new M4 tractor yet? I love my M7040 but I need an instructor seat it seems. Would really like to check out the M4 but dealer isn稚 sure when they will have any. Are they on your dealership lot yet?
