Well, again this weekend the tractor impresses me. I have been moving dirt, leveling driveway with the york rake, using the 52" ratchet Rake to clear out some brush and saplings for a fence install.
I am very pleased with the ability of this tractor to get the hard jobs done. I am waiting on my Sub compact Sub soiler to come in, but I have no doubt that the tractor will pull it based on what I have done so far.
This weekend, I needed to clear out some brush for the corner posts on a fence that I want around the yard. So I put on the handy ratchet rake and then went to town. I put on the york rake thinking I might need it, but never even used it. This thing is the perfect size for getting up into the brush and getting the job done and not
being so high up and wide that it is hard to manuever in the trees and brush. Here are some pics of the progress that was made in about an hour on Sunday.
From the seat, about 15 minutes in.
From the corner of the trail where I had to make a 90 degree turn, but facing back to the tractor. This is about 40 feet to the tractor.
This is the opening completed back to the 90 Degree turn, with a comparison of the brush and foilage the tractor yanked out of the ground with ease to the right. Saplings that were as large as 1 1/2" were no match for the tractor and the ratchet rake. It just yanks them out of the ground in low gear. No added weight or anything.
On my way out, I found a friend that tried his best to get a ride on the green terror that just tore up his home.
Still, the only thing I don't like about it, no speedometer. But I'll get over that..
