    We call Irving Oil in early October. I suspect most of the diesel in the area comes from the tank farm in Boston Harbor so they probably all switch around the same time. I go through a tank of diesel every couple of weeks in the Sprinter so less of an issue.

    Re: Tractors - Educate me

    Well, plow and plow truck sold tonight!

    I believe we are going to try to snag a Kubota 4701.

    @garandman thanks for talking with me a few weeks ago, it really helped, definitely sold me on the R4 tires.

    I was originally looking at the 3301, but if youre gonna get the 3301, you might as well get the 2501. But the 3301 is too small, so you might as well get the 3901. Well, the 3901 has the same pump capacity and pressure.

    SO, the 4701 is bigger, heavier, 4 cylinder instead of 3, more pto power, more pump pressure and capacity (my hoe would have run the same on the 2501, 3301, and 3901).

    Comes with the quick detach bucket, R4 tires, block heater, rear mounted blower with manual chute, tiller, loaded tires, and a rear light, 0% financing, 0 down, bobs yer uncle

    Last chance to slap some sense into another poor decision....

    With the amount of land you have, think you are going to love the 4701. Definitely want to check it out!

    Nice!

    Does that have hydraulic feed? That would be cool. We have a Wallenstein and it self-feeds pretty well but power feed would be faster.

    Yes, this has the hydro-static feed system . It uses 2 quarts of regular 10-40 to operate. A step up from the hydraulic systems .

    When I was repairing/replacing the hydrostatic transmission on my snow blower, I was surprised to learn that it runs using 0W-40 oil instead of hydraulic fluid.

    Re: Tractors - Educate me

    Guy on a FB group used his tractor to push over a Cherry tree. But the root ball became a lever, and trapped his front wheels so he couldn’t back up. Unhurt.

    Says he will use chains next time....

    That's awesome! And that's an M so it's heavier than anything we have. Break out the chain saw and start cutting the tree from the top until it tips back!

    Re: Tractors - Educate me

    I've seen guys using TLBs to knock trees over. Dig up and cut the roots on one side, then push away from you. Let the tree pull the stump out of the ground for you.
    I tried that on a smaller pine and decided the technique is not for me. I found I had very little control on which way the tree fell and had a few moments I thought I was going to get a tree in my lap.
    Now I'm cutting them off at about 3' above ground with a hinge cut and pulling the stump the more traditional way.

    In summary; nope, nope, nope.

    Re: Tractors - Educate me

    That's sold already. What was the price they were advertising?

    I agree about removing the loader. I spent more time than I should admit comparing the quick detach systems for loaders. Now I own a machine and realize I am probably never going to remove the loader.

    I suppose if you were mowing with it (ie smaller B or BX machine) or doing a lot of actual farm work. I have no intention of doing either of those so I suspect the loader will nearly never come off.

    At this point the only reason I can think to remove the loader is to make major service work easier. I'll probably detach it at the 50 hour mark for the oil change.. and to see how hard/easy it is. And to grease the pins.

    Re: Tractors - Educate me

    With the snow coming, the cars will get the garage and the poor Kioti will be pushed outside. I was happy to find a company in Concord NH which makes tractor covers and their large model just happened to be showcased on the same tractor I own. I asked a question on their Facebook page this morning and they replied to me in less than 10 minutes! Hopefully this works well until I have a more permanent structure to store it in.

    wouldn't it be easier to spend a couple more $ and get a fabric shed/hoop garage

    Re: Tractors - Educate me

    My goal is to have a more permanent structure that can house more than just the tractor so I'm trying not to spend more money than I need to on intermediate steps. The cover also has off site advantages that'll last for years.
