    Late fall sunset

    I had to stop and snap a photo as I was returning to the house after doing chores today.

    Toolbox for MX6000

    Oh, well I don’t have any experience with a cab tractor, but I think a canvas or cordura tool bag with a zipper might work for you. For others with an open station, I snapped a few more photos of my boxes mounted on the tractor. The large box is for a chain, tools, and pins. The small ammo box...

    Paralysis by analysis - Buying decision needs wise input!

    I would like a cab but didn’t choose one because I often work in wooded areas of my land. I don’t think the cab glass would last too long. If that’s not an issue for you, go for the cab, otherwise open station with a steel canopy is probably the wisest choice.

    To Plow or not To Plow

    I like to remove as much snow as possible because snowmelt into the road bed softens it too much. I like to keep the gravel road as dry as possible.

    Paralysis by analysis - Buying decision needs wise input!

    For your acreage and uses, the minimum size tractor I would advise is a MX, maybe even an M series. You will appreciate the better stability of these tractors over he L series for what you want to do. Cabs are nice, but not if you’re going to be working in the woods or around trees. That...

    Toolbox for MX6000

    See my toolbox on my MX6000. I just removed the useless plastic Kubota box and replaced it in the same location. I did have to make a steel extension bracket for the SMV sign. I have since also added a small ammo box next to the toolbox on the ROPS cross brace.

    Do you reverse your rear blade for snow ... any issues?

    That would help, but it’s simpler to just reverse the blade.

    using tractor to pull a stuck car/truck/rv

    I keep a clevis pinned to my drawbar to connect the chain for pulling or cable for log skidding.

    Do you reverse your rear blade for snow ... any issues?

    Yes, I reverse my blade to plow my gravel roads. I generally plow over 3/4 mile of road and the reversed blade keeps the gravel in place. I also do this in other times of years to do do the final gravel grading after pulling the gravel from the road ditches and shoulders with the blade facing...

    Sometimes you just have to say it...

    I prefer my Dodge because of the Cummins motor.

    Running Hot

    Does it inhibit air flow?

    Stupid question of the day...

    I made that same mistake once and had it gel in my tractor. Now I do the same as you.

    Running Hot

    IDK how you solve this issue other than frequently cleaning the screen. I have heard that some people carry a small HF battery operated leaf blower on the tractor for this purpose.

    Loader cylinder seals

    That is a consideration but the local dealers I’m familiar with have weeks worth of shop repairs and servicing stacked up. A hydraulic shop replaced the seals in a loader lift cylinder for me in 3 days (drop off to pick up).
