Essential acreage implements?
So I bought 70 acres about 9 minutes drive away from my current house, deal closed today. It has 1200+ feet of road frontage and power along this frontage. Maybe going to build on it in the 5 year plan. For now just going to mess around there cut some wood for my house, food plots potentially and likely bow hunt if I have time. It was logged about 10 years ago and the trails are still there but have a lot of ruts and wild raspberry bushes have taken over. I need to build a bridge across a large creek to access the back roughly 45 acres with the tractor.
Speaking of which I got some second hand fenders for it cant even get them from kubota anymore but haven't posted about the new to me L2550 in a while.
Anyways I dont have a loader for the tractor yet and likely wont until next year. I have a 6' back blade and 7' landscape rake. If I do end up doing some small food plots next year I'm leaning towards a small cultivator over a small offset disc since the ground has never been worked since the land is all bush. I think I want a box blade they seem handy as hell for keeping trails decent. I'd like to be able to get my f550 4x4 dump truck and chipper in there with relative ease eventually as a goal I guess. I'll also likely have about 40 loads of woodchips a year I can dump there and spread out on the trails or something to keep the weeds and undesirable crap like raspberry bushes from coming back thereby avoiding extensive brush hogging hopefully.
Anyways I'm open to any and all suggestions with information as I dont do 3pt implements since I've always had loader tractors and never had the need. Thanks 🙂
