We were talking today, and wondering, what type of implements did most people buy, how much did they pay, and were they happy with the implement ( implements )that they bought? Just trying to get an idea of what everybody gets for their tractor. So, here are our questions, and there is no need for any brand names to be listed.

1st, what type and size of implement have you bought?

2nd, how much did you pay for that implement?

3rd, are you happy with the implement?

4th, if you are not happy, what would you change about the implement?

Maybe this will give us all some insight on what we spend our $$$ on.:eek:

Good post. Let's see.....1) FEL 300cx with 73" bucket $3850 2) 48" Pallet forks $? don't remember 3) 4' Box blade $400 ( Purchased with my first tractor a few years back which was smaller than current tractor. Still, not a bad piece of equipment.) 4) Bush Hog $2,100. Don't know if an air conditioned cab is considered an implement, attachment or whatever but, it didn't come as standard equipment and it makes for a relative easy day in the whole scheme of things. Am I happy? Very much so. T-Man

My 8N came with a 5 foot brush hog. Hardly use it but like it.
Dirt scoop. 24 inch. $66 of ebay. Love it. Use it a lot. wish it was bigger.
Finish mower. 60 inch. $250. Love it. Use it a lot. Looks in sad shape.
Scrape blade. 72 inch. I built it. $200. Use it often. Needs painted.
SBM. 72 inch. Traded a tractor manual for it. Not operational. Needs work.
2-16 bottom plow. $100. Use it once or twice a year. Works Ok for me.

Brush hog brand is unknown. Dirt Scoop is a JBar. FM and plow are Big Bee.
Scrape blade I made myself. Sickle Bar Mower is a Dearborn.

Wish list. boom pole, pallet forks, middle buster/ripper, PHD, PTO Generator.
Wish list: bigger tractor to handle a FEL, tiller, round baler and other hay equipment, backhoe. Also wish I was rich enough to afford all this.

4' brush hog -- $1,000; works fine
53" FEL -- $2,600; works fine
5' Frontier back blade -- $250; haven't used it much; bought mostly for snow
Carryall -- $92; works fine with pallet bottom and stantions holding 2x4 posts for sides and back; back folds down at about 1/2 way point; really fine way to balance a huge load with this and FEL loaded with mulch; good also for very bulky items too big for FEL; plan to put a bunch of buckets in it this spring to water 80 trees I'm putting in; could buy a tank, remove the sides and back and strap the tank to the bottom pallet, too.
Soil ripper & disc hiller -- about $200 in parts; friend gave to me and adapted it to take the disc hiller discs to make raised rows. Works magnificently as either soil ripper or disc hiller. Friend gets free veggies.
MacKissic TPH-122 chipper/shredder -- $1,600; works great!

This answers 1 & 2...

I'm including the tractor as it is the tool platform.
2001 Power Trac PT425
25HP gas engine
Hydraulically articulated between sections and oscillates between sections(front tires can be 12 degrees tilted from back tires and all four remain on the ground).
FEL arms included with tractor.
Hydraulically operated quick attach system(operator doesn't leave seat to change non-powered implements, has to leave the seat to connect/disconnect two hoses for powered implements).
All implements are out front where they should be.
All powered implements are hydraulically powered(no PTO shafts).
ROPS and Canopy included.
Full time all wheel drive.
$8000.00 - PT425 tractor
$1200.00 - 60" finish mower
$800.00 - 48" brush hog
$400.00 - 10 cubic foot light material bucket
$300.00 - 5 cubic foot rock bucket

$450.00 - 60" power angle snow plow
$250.00 - Pallet forks
$140.00 - Loading ramps to load it in my pickup truck (yes, it fits in a standard pickup bed with one attachement attached)

Total price $12,591.00 dollars delivered from Virginia to Indiana. Not too bad.

To answer #3...
Yes, I am very happy with all of my implements.

To answer #4...
The guage wheels are pneumatic and should have been solid from the factory. I changed that and am happy, happy, happy.... :D
