    3 speed PTO with reverse!

    So many of you may remember that I modified a vermeer trencher to use as a log skidder. It's a neat little tractor with a 6 way blade in front and a hydraulic winch on back. Works great for working in the woods and I don't worry about scratching it up in he woods like I would if it was my other...

    I was going through some of my welding stuff I don't use and getting it listed on e-bay and noticed my plasma cutter sitting under the table. I bought it new about 10 years ago for a project repairing some breakwater on Grand Lake in Oklahoma. Since then it has been used only a few occasions...

    Any college football fans on here? I figured with all the craziness that has gone on this season and with the regular season rolling to an end we might need a place to talk college football. It sure seems that Bama is going to be hard to beat with all the undefeated teams going down last...

    Cost for Hot Shot Service

    I was listing a load on u-ship and it got me wondering what the going rate was for a hot shot service these days. I used to have a guy back in Oklahoma about 6 years ago who would move equipment for $1.65 a loaded mile. These days my local truckers are running between $2.50-$4.00 a loaded mile...

    Bison Box Blade BB-210 With Hydraulic Rippers

    I have been in the market for a box blade since buying my JCB tractor. I sold my Bobcat tractor with the blade so I had been getting by with the bucket (I added a 3 point attachment) on back of the JCB but I really wanted a box blade.

    PTO chipper WoodMaxx new MX-9900

    I'm considering purchasing a PTO wood chipper and had always had my eye on the Woodmaxx WM-8H and then I noticed they have a newer model, the MX-9900. I wanted to get opinions on the new model compared to the old as I am not sure the extra 1 inch of capacity is worth the extra $. $2,800 vs...

    Just my luck. LOL. I purchased a different tractor and was planning on putting this up for sale and I think I must have made it mad when it heard the news. I used it this evening to unload a trailer full of logs and everything was working great. Thinking back I did notice a couple of times...

    PTO post peeler

    Anybody have any experience with a PTO post peeler? I've been looking for one and haven't found much, Mobark makes a pretty complex one called the PS8 but that is all I have found in the states. Their salesman was not aware they even made the unit so I guess it is not to popular. I've ran...
