Those are expensive toys. That's a pretty good price if you can do all the repairs yourself, but you might be better off to continue waiting for a deal on a tractor with loader that you can do some work with.
If I buy that, there's no way I'm getting a loader, which I'd get a LOT more use from. I might also need to find a new place to live...

In good shape, these things go for a bunch of money.

Now that I have a loader oh heck no I'd get a loader tractor first.

It's real, and real expensive too. I saw your post and googled FEL for UTV and found several options, and many YouTube videos of home made ones. I think they are more available than 2021 Ford Broncos. Order yours today, and fire up the GoPro to share with all of us.

Who is the manufacturer for that loader, Jere? I'm seeing others that look smaller.

Sorry to say, I only found the image, and quit looking after that. I saw several smaller buckets too as I look just now. However, there is a pretty sturdy one for an ATV here:

Hauled the last load of shop firewood. The shop wood is any that may have some insects, punky, or just Knarly wood that we don't want to bring in the house.

I burn that stuff outdoors, and try to burn it as soon as possible, especially if there are bugs inside of the wood. I don't have a shop (and neither the garage nor shed have any heat source), but wouldn't want to bring anything buggy into any structure.

Self-correction / clarification:

I wouldn't want to bring a piece of firewood, with a wood-eating bug(s) in it, into a wood-framed structure!

I suppose it wouldn't matter as much if the shop were a steel building (and you weren't storing lumber inside).

The shop wood comes from the wood shed and right into the fire. Usually the bugs have moved on after I destroy their home during splitting and the months of drying in the shed. A couple of times I have brought mice into the house that made a home in a hollow chunk of wood. I hate it when that happens.

Wow. I inspect everything for holes, and burn anything questionable outdoors. Better to be safe than sorry! Mice and chipmunks love the woodpiles here.

I've had carpenter ants hidden in pallet wood in my garage end up destroying much of the rear endwall--they got into the headers and plywood and hollowed it out ,looked OK on the outside,but nothing was left on the inside but sawdust and a billion huge ants..
I only bring enough wood in the house to burn that day now..(not that I could haul more than that in my current condition anyhow)...my wood piles always have mice nests,lots of spiders,some as big as turantulas,I do not need them in my house..

This thread looked like it needed some reviving. Got a load of logs on the trailer behind the Farmall Super C ready to transport. Most are destined for the sawmill and a couple will be bucked up for firewood.
