Re: GC1700 series questions
Thanks for all this info, my questions have been answered.
I've decided to look for a used 'true 4x4' tractor with at least a 25HP diesel engine and FEL (looking at a couple of older Kubotas). That would give me enough power to run a Wallenstein 4" 3-point chipper and be able to access our woodland for wildfire prevention cleanup. At a later date, I can add a Wallenstein GE 605 (or larger) backhoe. That's the plan, subject to change every day.
Any obvious pitfalls?
