I had previously started a thread to introduce myself when I first joined TBN. It was entitled "New member, no tractor". There I had alluded to the tractor I may get. Well, I haven't yet gotten my tractor but I wanted to show a picture of the tractor I want. Here is my dream tractor::p

Yes, it's my "dream" tractor. I dream about it every night.

It is a Kubota M8540 HD12 4WD with Quicke Q35 FEL. I can't wait 'til it's mine.:)

That is one heck of a dream! What type of property do you own that will put this size Kubota to work?

Well, it would be waaaayyy overkill for my property. But hey, I'm always into overkill.

The more steps to climb up to operator platform... the better the dream.

Yeah Doc, you can get it with horizontal exhaust.:) I've got a sneaky feelin' though that my tractor would somehow miraculously accumulate several hundred more hours during "storage".;)

Ok, chief.... great choice... now, for the really fun stuff... A tractor is just an engine.. you now need ATTACHMENTS:D

Shurely your dream has you doing stuff.... and, it's the attachments that you do that with.

The FEL is a great start.... But, surely you're gonna tell us what else you are going to get so we can offer additonal suggestions about what you need.

I'll start:
toothbar
carryall on 3PH with trailer hitch attachment
chain hooks on FEL bucket
pallet forks
it is a Quick Attach, isn't it?
larger tool box
hydraulic top link
box blade with hydraulic rippers

And, I don't even know what you want to do with your new baby:eek:

Okay, here you go:
  • Rhino Turbo 120 rotary cutter
  • Cammond 88" Box Blade w/ hydraulic scarifiers
  • 48" 5500lb pallet forks
  • 9 foot lift disc harrow
  • Cultipacker
  • 3-bottom plow
  • Herd seeder
  • PTO driven boom sprayer
  • Meyer QA mount snow plow
  • QA grapple
  • Markham welding 83" toothbar

That's a decent start. There are others such as Rebel disc mower and round baler, etc. but those can wait until next week. Haha.:D

I'm sure my wife will get me most of that for Christmas. :p Yeah right!!
