I posted this somewhere else on here but I'll post it here as well. I pull all kinds of things with my Power Kings. Trees are a big one for me. I even broke a chain trying to pull one over. But, the best thing I ever witnessed was a late 60's Economy with a 12hp engine pulling 2700 pounds on a dead sled to win a pull.:eek:mg: That was impressive. Sorry, I didn't get any pics. Wish I had.

I wish I had a GT with some pulling power. As it is now, all I have is a YT but it doesn't stop me from pulling a sweeper, plug aerator, log splitter, and cart. Just not all at the same time. :fing20:

Here is my less then a month old GT-5000 pulling my old trailer! :) I also have a car dolly that my old 1971 Cutom 8E (over 800 lbs) pulls around the yard. I am anxious to see how my GT-5000 will do with it.

LLigetfa, that's one awesome load of wood! I love a good load of firewood. Check out my picture site and you'll see my firewood set up.

Wow Jas .. you stack your firewood as nice as LLigrtfa does :congrats:
I don't know about that. His is pretty uniform. All I know is it's stacked nice and dry in my ten dollar corn crib I got at a local farm auction. If the wood don't keep you warm, thoughts of the price will.:thThumbsU

This was the "light" load . Did another of 40 block . Comes out to close to 2000 lbs.



The JD hauled this with no problem . 7x10 trailer with 28 14 foot 2x10s that were soaking wet . Did another load with 42 14 footers but didn't think to get a pic .



A bad storm snapped this tree so I cut the remainder down and hauled it out of the woods , down the street , and into my yard to be cut up . The little 3210V didn't even grunt .




I've also pulled my truck (96' F 150 ) around the yard with the 3210V .


Lol , even use my tractor for "shed moving" .




Haven't found anything yet that I couldn't "pull" with either tractor . Then again , if I think it might be out of their range I just use the truck anyway .

No pictures , it was last winter , my neighbor allows me to take firewood from trees that are blow downs , from his 15 acre woods as long as I do the trail maintenance , I had my 4'x8' utility trailer loaded with probably 600 lbs. of firewood , the trailer weighs empty 400 lbs. , so I pulled around a 1000 lbs. through 8" of snow a half mile out with my X595 ...

Later,x595

A guy visiting my neighbour saw me hooking up to our 18' travel trailer with my MF12h and said " You can't pull that with that little tractor." I guess I slapped the drive control a little hard because the engine actually lugged down for a second as it took off for the back yard. Then I cranked up the throttle. I built a hydraulic 3ph hitch for that tractor and didn't even have to raise the tongue jack on the trailer. The FEL counter balanced the tongue load nicely and kept the front wheels on the ground, even with the hard acceleration and high hitch point. Never spun a wheel.
