    Land clearing for house build, need some insite

    Mr. Darren, welcome to the forum! As Mr. Egon mentions, patience. I live in northern PA, and we may have shared in some of the same rain storms! 4.5 inches in the last 8 days. 2021 has been a terrible rainy summer...and the tractor is parked for the most part, because I don't want to rut all...

    Grapple versus Grape Vines

    Divide and conquer has worked for me...though some go 40 and 50 feet up into the trees. Multiflora roses can be tenacious also...and they actively search out and attack tractor operators! As many have said, once cut from the root, both will eventually let go of their stranglehold. I cleaned...

    Lynch Pins Coming Off

    Had run my 8' finish mower for the last year without any issues. With a guide wheel on each corner, a total of 4 lynch pins had been holding everything tight... Then, I read this thread! Sure enough, the next day while using the mower, I lifted it and one of the guide wheels fell out! Lost a...

    Trying to remove 50 inch oak tree stump with Bobcat backhoe. Struggling

    Funny observation! When I went back to look at the pic, it's almost as if the person was reduced in size and photo shopped into the scene. Without the person for perspective, it looks like a typical hole for digging around a 12 inch tree for push-over removal.

    Trying to remove 50 inch oak tree stump with Bobcat backhoe. Struggling

    Stumps can be hard, although can you cut it in half, else quarters with a chainsaw and lift it out? That may actually be faster, more effective than burning at this point.

    Kubota MX6000 FEL Not Raising - Resolved

    Not suggesting that every issue is related to a bad QDC, but rather, a basic component like a QDC might go bad, and to consider your situation to determine if you can easily isolate the cause, or at least narrow down the root issue. Might start by looking at your tractor's configuration to see...

    Some people are born knowing everything about hydraulics. It is not part of my DNA. Kubota MX6000, 300 hours, 11 months old. Out clearing more fields on my 35 acres...had just dumped a grapple full of limbs on top of one of my large brush piles...FEL raised to the max. Seemingly without...

    Good luck on your search. I had been looking for a few months with very specific requirements for a used 8' EA or Rhino with offset capability on Marketplace (Fakebook)...they are pretty scarce. I ended up driving from Northern PA into West Virginia to pick up a one year old 8' EA. 12 hours...

    Mr. 3LFarms, greatly interested in details on the Summit setup. Looks like you have an original set of 3 remotes, and the Summit is using one set, your Top & Tilt are using the others? Was it plug and play to add, or were there significant modifications necessary? Did you have to order the...

    It is possible a factually proven real-time encounter of alien life would trigger a widespread, global fear response. Even if it were not the alien's intent, mankind would automatically assume they intend's in our DNA. At any rate, life as we have known it will be measurably...

    Nice job Mr. Cperky. Interesting how something like a crepe myrtle is beautiful at 4 or 5 feet tall...and can grow to be a nuisance at 10 or 15 feet tall! Regretfully, I too have a lot of projects where I wish there were some good "before" photos... Most people go through life as critics and...

    Best Steering / Frame / Tractor Combo -- for Robotic-Electric.

    Light weight might be beneficial for a lawn or field mower, but traction is a key attribute for a multi-purpose tractor. Light weight is less efficient for ground engagement tasks. Also wondering about the real life usability of being tied to an umbilical cord for power. Compare the use of a...

    It looks like 80 to 90% of what you have in your pictures could be easily removed with a root style grapple. It's fairly easy to dig out clump brush and smaller trees up to 6 to 8 inches with that style grapple on my 60hp MX6000, which might be a similar sized tractor as yours. Typically...

    How can you paint hardware cloth without a bunch of waste?

    You can spray paint wire mesh from an angle... Aim the spray can from a 30 to 45 degree angle to the face of the mesh, rather than from straight on, and work around the perimeter of each piece, keep the can moving with light spray paint applied. As you work around each piece, it covers the...
