I’m trying to drag the tree over to the burn pile but the girls won’t get out of the way or quit standing in the fire or stop licking the fire. I’ve never seen an animal so non-plused about fire as a longhorn.

They’re probably trying to run the gnats off.

Re: FJ Down On The Farm?

[QUOTE=CabinCruiser;9217318]I also found this:

2017 BX-25TLB 4WD

25 HP, HST TRANSMISSION, QUICK ATTACH LOADER, BACKHOE, R-4 TIRES, 51 HOURS. $16500 w/balance of factory warranty.

This is the one I had. Great tractor but not a power house. I would love to have another one but would keep my 48 hp Kubota too. My dad has an 80hp New Holland 2wd no loader, for bush hogging, raking. A rich man like yourself would be better off getting two.

The BX series is great for light weight nibble work but you definitely need a heavy rig for day to day work.

I'm also looking at an older Ford 550. The guy used to run the county shop and I know he's taken very good care of it. It's 2wd but will do heavier chores for sure.

2wd with locking rear works great. Back in my day 4wd tractors were rare.

The problem with modern 2wd tractors especially in the case of Kubota is that they’re far lighter than similar sized tractors from the past reducing pulling power. Our 70 hp 4wd wouldn’t pull a damn thing without water in the rear tires and only in 2wd. Now companies like Branson and Mahindra still make heavy chassis tractors that are great 2wd options that’ll pull like crazy because of the mass involved. The way I look at it if you’re gonna drop the coin just spend the money and get the 4wd, you’ll never regret it.

Well the way I'm looking at it, the BX23S will be for light duty jobs and clearing out the forest, while I can use the big dog for the major jobs and fixing the drainage etc. I'm still not ruling out a skid steer instead of the small tractor though. Man they're pricey though.
