Hi everyone,
My name is Carpenter Mark and I'm in CT. I'm a bit of a newbie to tractors as even though I've owned one for 8 years, it's just recently that I've begun to use it for more than around the house. Like my name says, I'm a career carpenter of 36 years. I went back to school at 50 to update my knowledge and skills (mostly computers and CAD) to stay abreast of the industry. Lately, I've found myself doing more and more property management for folks who's homes I've worked on, hence, I'm using my tractor more and more for work and could use advice on how to use it efficiently, what attachments are good to have, etc.
My tractor is a Kubota B7500 with a loader, a Woods 6500 backhoe on an undermount frame and I have a 5' york rake and a 4' grading blade for the 3 point. I originally bought it to work around my property and got the compact because of it's smaller footprint and turning radius as I'm on the side of a hill. Lately I'm beginning to think about getting something larger, but we have to see how the economy goes.
Anyway, I found the site while looking for three point linkage(another story) and am glad to be here.
