Another day at the office.

I finally cleaned up the sander/spreader real good, all that's left to do is grease it and take another inch off the pto shaft. Since I was cleaning that I decided to wash off the tractor, done.

Before I put the backhoe on, I'll make sure all the nut & bolts are good and tight on the frame on the tractor that holds the hoe.

Yesterday.....put the backhoe on to pull out a few small stumps. There is a powerline that runs over my yard and through the fence row / tree line that goes to the neighbor's farm behind me. The power company's crew came in to clear the branches and trees from the area and left me with a few small stumps to remove rather than trash my mower over them. My backhoe doesn't get a lot of use, but every time it does, I'm very glad that I have it. Also used the bucket hooks (Ken's bolt ons) and chain to rip out the remaining roots. It's just plain awesome to have the equipment to make little jobs like this much easier. Any seat time on my Max is a good time!

I'll be moving some ash rounds to the splitting area and then I plan on pulling some ash I felled out of the gully with the 4540, EAB has hit our county months ago so I'm starting on the ones near some trails.

Pics 9071 & 72B are some ash I cut the other day, the rest are ash that I felled today.

I bucked up two of the ash trees that are in the gully and then pulled one out with the 4540 that's down further from the first couple of pics. I did move some of the rounds from pic 9103 to the splitter area.101_9101.JPG101_9102.JPG101_9103.JPG101_9104.JPG101_9106.JPG101_9107.JPG101_9109.JPG101_9110.JPG

Nice work swampy6. Nice looking wood. I'm hoping I get some wood done this weekend. It has been raining the last day or so here.

Thanks heavy hammer, that means your're sending us rain. :confused3: I'm opening up the gully with the 4540 for a walking trail and for use with the tractor so we can get more ash this fall.

A few days back, I finally used my Brush Hog.
It is a 60" Unit form Tractor Supply, CountryLine/King Kutter.
It is rated from 25 to 45 HP but my Tractor only has 28 HP and rated 23 HP at the PTO.
So I guess I am over working the little Max28 but hoping for the best.
So far all is good, the cutter has cut everything I put under it and so far the little tractor appears to be doing fine.

Happy with this thing, far more than I thought I would be and I got it on sale $300 off !

Just be sure to keep your rpm's up to the point where you maximize your HP. Consult your manual to be sure. I don't have a Max, but my 2538 sure does more than the rated 38 hp it has.
Glad it's working fine for you. Sounds like you got a good deal too!

Thanks for the info.

The Speed-O has an indicator for the 540 rpms; I run it just a little above that point.
