Of wire to go up Rops and forward to front of canopy (made from an old Jeep CJ hardtop that I cut up and repurposed). Super...

    Aux power electrical connectors

    Be sure to test the bullet connections for power before you do anything. With my headlights on they have no power showing there is a work light fuse showing in manual pic but the 2025 fuse box is different without space for it.

    Tractors and wood! Show your pics

    Not a fan of stacking. Once I got my tractor things changed. I can't afford the metal totes ( $100.00 here) so I make mine out of wood pallets 42 x42. Almost all red oak. 3 pallets make a cord. I try to stack them 2 high. I can't lift a full one ( freshly split and green weighs 1630lbs) to the...

    Bobcat CT2025

    I had a ford 1920 for years and it could lift and curl the same wood skids effortlessly. When I tested the bobcat I thought I was doing something wrong and it would get better. NOPE! The Bobcat is still a really nice machine but the loader functions are flawed!

    Moving Cordwood

    Post #23 mentions WR Long. They are the best and custom make the quick attach to fit your tractor model. I did this with my old Ford 1920 and they were great to work with! Remove your old bucket and pin on new quick attach bracket to the loader arms. You do need to cut the tabs off the bucket...

    Can Bobcat loader lift and tilt smoothly?

    I have a new bobcat 2025 tractor. Under 10 hours still. I had a Ford 1920 and I used it a lot to move firewood on skids! I did 2035 tractor to demo for a few days. When lifting a skid of firewood I would always start lifting and at the same time tilt the forks a little to keep the firewood...

    Canopy made from Jeep hardtop

    I made a canopy for my Bobcat tractor 2025 model out of a junk CJ7 Jeep hard top. Removed broken glass and cut off sides. With a little sanding and painting was ready to go! Bolted it onto the ROPS with bolts from Ace hardware. Looks pretty good and will protect from falling branches too. I...

    Building firewood rack from pallets

    I've been using pallets like this for 10 years or so. The first pallet racks I made were built so I could take them apart and break them down flat as I used the wood. I still have the first ones I built this way and they work well but are too much work and cost to keep making. Can't beat pallet...

    canopy from Jeep CJ hardtop

    My brother had an old Jeep CJ hardtop laying around. I cut off the back window and sides. Made a nice even cut all the way around. Welded up some brackets. Didn't take long to do.

    simple cheap firewood racks

    I was looking at what others on the forum were doing with firewood and did not see any racks made this way. The stone quarries use a similar setup, although it's smaller to handle large flat stone. I thought I'd modify it for firewood. Just add a couple of 2x4's to a standard pallet. Cut some...
