    I don't understand something.

    I typically put 30-40 hours per year on my Kubota L4060. I bought it with 170 hours on it and got a very good deal. I have an 800' long driveway that I maintain with it. Also, we have 11 heavily wooded acres and regularly have downfallen trees.....sometimes pretty big ones, and sometimes...

    New Southern land leveler - who makes them and where are they made? - Opinions please. Same for Catawba Attachments

    Thanks for the tip on Dirt Dog. I just went to their website and downloaded the brochures, and their stuff looks like exactly the type of equipment I'm looking for.....a bit heavier duty than the typical stuff but not over-the-top heavy duty that a homeowner wouldn't need

    I don't think so. I came across that website too. See the attached photos.

    New Southern land leveler - who makes them and where are they made? - Opinions please. Same for Catawba Attachments

    I need to buy a 6' land leveler to maintain my 800' driveway. I'm currently using an old, partially functioning, pretty beat-up Gannon rollover box blade. I can't spend what it costs or wait out the lead time for an EA land plane, and I want something heavier duty than a J-Bar-type land...

    Land Plane/Leveler

    Sorry, just saw your reply to my question. Thanks.

    Land Plane/Leveler

    I looked at their website and saw that they don't use scarifiers but instead, the blades are toothed. I haven't seen that before. Does anybody out there have any feedback on that design?

    Saved by a steering wheel

    Glad you are OK. Could you please explain in a little more detail how this happened? The way I woiuld interpret your photos is that the tree had fallen. The trunk seems higher on the left side, where I presume the root ball is located. I'm thinking that you moved in to grab the trunk with...

    Homemade Chainsaw Carrier - Yet another idea

    Yeah, I'm still cogitating about a way to carry the cant hook and gas can because of my welding limitations (don't know how + can't with my implanted defibrillator)

    Homemade Chainsaw Carrier - Yet another idea

    Thanks for that input. I guess I need to revert back to the head resting on the top rim of the scabbard. Right now, it's intentionally not because I was afraid of bending the spikes.

    Homemade Chainsaw Carrier - Yet another idea

    No, that's a good question. Originally, I had the bar slot completely open at the bottom and the weight was resting on the top and bottom spikes, which are longer than the two middle spikes. I did not like all the weight of the power head on those 2 spikes, so I screwed a block in place at the...

    Homemade Chainsaw Carrier - Yet another idea

    Now, you're up yonder in the great, white North, so I'll bet you can just throw a shovel or two of that cold smoke you've got up there into a heap and pack it into a platform next to your Kioti and gain an inch or six in height and you'll be able to lift that MS 362 up high enough just fine!

    Homemade Chainsaw Carrier - Yet another idea

    Well, I've been wanting to rig up a contraption for carrying my chainsaw on my Kubota L4060 so I wouldn't have to put it in the bucket when I'm in the woods cutting up downfallen trees. I know there are kits on the market like SawHaul, but I didn't want to spend $180 on the thing and I'm not...

    Bad news big repair

    I'm no mechanic, but FYI, I had a little John Deere 670 and the ignition switch rotated both directions. I'd rotate the key to the left for 10 seconds or so to warm the glow plugs then rotate to the right to activate the starter motor. That system worked great. Seems that the suggestions...

    Surprised by need for rear ballast with L 4060 in this situation

    Thank you. I wish Kubota would get into some detail. That statement is boilerplate to cover their asses from being sued and is pretty much as worthless as tits on a bull. How much ballast? My 3PH has a capacity of over 2000 lbs. Would 2000 lbs. maximize my safety? Would it put too much stress on...
