    Small Offset Flail-type Mower?

    Is there such a thing as a small offset flail mower that would run on a B2601? I have a couple use cases for this.............I have a long 600'(ish) driveway and I would like to periodically cut the weeds back along the edges without having to manually hit it with the string trimmer which is a...

    Morton Building Project - NH

    So yesterday I took the leap and signed papers for a basic Morton Standard building of 24' x 32' with 14' walls and a 12x12 door (and a 'people door'). With the prices of darn near everything being insane these days I elected to go with a "pole barn" build with columns in the ground and a...

    Friendly PSA - Treat Your Fuel, Cold Weather is Here

    Since I darn near forgot I figured I would toss out a friendly PSA. I need to fill up my fuel cans which reminded me to put in some winter additive as I doubt I will blow through those gallons before freezing temps hit. The thing I did forget was the fuel currently in the tractor is untreated...

    Drum Roller Compactor

    I maintain our gravel drive of 550' that has a pretty decent slope to it with some water mitigation challenges. We received 7" of rain in the past week and thus I needed to bust out the box blade and regrade. Challenge is after I regrade it needs some compaction obviously otherwise I run the...

    Let's Talk About Rock.....Literally...

    So I have a few project areas on my NH property that I need stone/rock etc. of various sizes to complete. What I am finding is that no one refers to rock or stone by the same name so when I call a stone place and ask for rock for a drainage ditch in the 2-4" range they for some reason think I...

    Front Axle Oil Level

    A friend of mine with a BX mentioned someone told him to check the front axle oil level from the dealer and sure enough it was really low. So he passed on the advice to me on the B2601 and I checked today......low and behold mine is showing ~1/3 up the fill notch on the dipstick. Is this a...

    Drag Harrow.....gravel on lawn

    So......the winter combo of front blower and back blade worked fantastic. That being said, as thing softened up I ended up with a decent amount of loose gravel and aggregate (gravel driveway) along the edge of my drive and then of course I blew that crap all over the lawn........oops.... As...

    First Snow for the B2601

    I would be lying if I said I wasn't hoping for a dumping of snow......and we got a decent first test in NH yesterday with the Nor'Easter that dropped 8" of heavy wet stuff after 24hrs of rain ahead of it. The 48" blower worked flawlessly and with the RB1560 back blade combo I had everything I...

    How do you store your Box Blade?

    So until I have the ideal implement storage setup, finding a level spot at the back of the yard is really my current option. That being said I need to come up with a modified pallet solution to store my BB1260 level and ready for the Quick Hitch to grab it. The blades on the back and tines on...

    Adventures in "Tractoring"......5-6hrs in......

    So with somewhere near 6 hours on the B2601 so far I gotta say I love it. Overall a very easy tractor to operate but of course it hasn't been without its "moments". In the first couple hours I graded the 450' up hill section of the driveway with the rear blade as it only needed some minor work...

    Delivery Day for the 2601.......

    Big day finally arrived. When I got the call the tractor was ready I caught on to the fact they kept saying "Box Blade" and I had ordered the RB1560.......rear blade....well honest mistake they had prepped a BB1260......which I probably would have gotten in the Spring anyways. So.....just keep...

    Trigger Pulled on B2601

    Newbie to the Orange forums (but not forums in general) and happy to report I put a deposit down on a new B2601 the other day. We have 2 properties of ~5 acres and 8.5acres in NH and northern VT respectively with our primary having a 500' gravel driveway with a steep grade up to the road and...
