    Trailer build

    That's kinda like I was thinking Xfaxman. Right now the trailer is almost balanced right over the tires, maybe just a tad toward the tongue.

    Westendorf Brush Crusher

    Anyone comment on this attachment that has used one. It seems promising for smaller tractors by not needing a third function remote. I would also be interested in prices as their website does not list cost.
