    Miniex price *predictions*

    I'm great at overthinking things, so please poke holes in my logic. I thought I was ready to buy a miniex (KX040, Bobcat E42, or similar) this summer, for personal use on my land. I have plenty of use for one, and would prefer using it for a few hours here and there rather than batching...

    Skidding winch sizing? and Pat's Easy Change

    I'm thinking it's time to get a skidding winch for my tractor (42HP). Been mulling for a while, but used ones are rare around here, and I doubt new ones are going to get any cheaper anytime soon. According to Wallenstein's website, the 8500lb-capacity FX85 would be the right size for our...

    BH860 backhoe transport length?

    Does anyone know the length of the Branson BH860 backhoe, from the front of the frame to the back of the hoe? I need to get it from my woodlot to the dealer/repair shop (unfortunate encounter with a very large boulder...) and I'm trying to figure out if I can transport it myself on a 6x12...

    Being dumb repairing winch

    Just looking for rueful sympathy. Bought a snow blade for my Kawasaki Mule (MX Pro). Installed it, left it on to run an errand. Carelessly bashed a large rock with it while raising it out of the way *and* moving forward at some speed (dumb, yeah I know to not go fast while plowing, but I wasn't...

    Front blade for Mule MX: Snow *and* gravel

    Time to get a snow blade for my Mule MX Pro. I want the best of both worlds, occasional snow removal (1/4 mile driveway) in winter as primary use, but also ability to smooth out gravel and earth in the summer. Feasible or dumb idea? If feasible, anything I should watch for (e.g. heavy duty vs...

    Towing trailer (5000 lbs) w/ tractor

    I'm in that dangerous stage of having survived my first 18 mos as a tractor newbie, and therefore maybe feeling cocky :) I'd like to occasionally pull a loaded trailer around my forest property with my tractor. Trailer is a 8.5 x 14' flatbed (deckover), when loaded about 5000 lbs. Tractor is...

    Buy well-used Honda 2005 TRX500 ATV?

    When we bought our land a year ago, previous owner temporarily left behind his ATV, a 2005 Honda Rubicon TRX500fa, allowing us to use it until he "figures out what to do with it". It's been quite helpful as we get set up, for running around trails on the property, pulling stuff, etc. He's...

    L805/L4060 real life lifting capacity

    Hi, I'm a near newbie buying my first tractor (got great general advice at my initial thread) I'm now deciding between a L4060HST+LA805+BH92 combo versus a comparable Branson 4225H, which are surprisingly similarly priced where I'm at. The biggest minus of the L4060 seems to be the lower, at...

    Tell me if I'm on the right track (newbie)

    I've just bought a recreational property in Ontario. I'm new to tractors, but based on my reading here and elsewhere, I think I should get a Kubota L3901 or Kioti CK4010. Would appreciate people poking holes in my thinking. When some of this white stuff goes away, I'll start visiting dealers...

    Houska from Ontario, Canada

    Just bought a couple of hundreds of acres of recreational land, Canadian shield wilderness. A couple of private lakes and a couple of miles/km of private road, painstakingly developed and maintained by the previous owner on the cheap, using the labour of friends with rented equipment. Pretty...
