    Houghton Lake. Not sure if you remember, but I sold you a MS261 3 or 4 years ago. I delivered it to you.

    That's very nice.
    I was thinking of snagging up another L3800 and then selling mine, it had lower hrs and a couple sets of remotes, unfortunately someone else got it first. You snooze you loose :crybaby2::eaea:.
    I bet that makes using those forks on the back slick.

    Dropped this locust the on the 1st with a rope doubled off a nice elm thru a pulley. I set the notch up and decided to take a bit more off to compensate for the wind, the wind let up and I decided to go for it as it looked okay. Well it was about 2-4' off where I had it gunned, took out a nice red oak I was planning on saving. At least I got my screwup of the yr out of the way:risas3:. It was back leaning about 5' at 50' up so I'm not totally bummed that I missed my mark, but surely bummed about loosing a nice 5-6" red oak.

    Thanks for all the feed back!! I decided I would go with the Norse 350 from Labonville, but they are out of stock.
    Uniforest the next best price is out of stock. I broke down and shelled out the extra grand, and have a Farmi 35R coming.:applaudit::eusa_dance::dancer2:

    Less features more money but great reputation. Maybe it is like buying a Kubota.

    My little firewood tractor. Not big enough to skid tree length out of the woods. But, it feeds my wood splitter decently once the woods out to a landing.

    Looking good. There was a guy making 3 point grapples like that near here a few years ago. I think he was selling them for like $12-1400 or something like that. Kinda wish I would have picked one up. I love my Farmi winch, but sometimes the grapple would be slick.

    On the farm we had a John Deere D for pulling the wood sleigh loaded with logs and then put a 20 foot loop of belting on its clutch drum to power the buzz saw to buck the logs up into stove length.

    Sorry no pictures of the JD D as I had no camera in the 1960s.
    But here a cool video of a tractor I would love to own

    2 stroke single cylinder Lanz Bulldog that can run at zero rpm.

    FWIW the D model John Deere was the largest displacement two cylinder JD ever made .6 3/4" bore, 7" stroke 34.6 drawbar HP 900 rpm 40 HP on the belt . In low gear I don't think you can stall one .

    Super excited! Finished the 3rd function install on my compact tonight. This was all done on off the shelf parts from the farm store. Made all the brackets and very happy with the way it all turned out. I ran the circuit from one of my rear remotes valves. The valve handle is in a very convenient location so I think this will work well. Hopefully going to pick up a grapple bucket this weekend and we'll see how well I did!

    I was noticing the rear blades which I had to use yesterday to plow my drive way because the flippen Jeep didn't want to start .That might have had something to do with the fact it had not been started in nearly a year .They are better than a scoop shovel not as good as a front mounted angle blade .I finally did get the Jeep going after a certain amount of profanity and a squirt of starting fluid .After it chugged away on half choke it finally straightened up .Maybe the next snow it will behave itself so I don't have freeze my business off on that damned tractor .
