@Matt Ellerbee I think your machine is the hardest ridden on the forum, maybe a little battered today, but it is looking exceptionally clean! 😁


Caught a nice deal on this RCR1248. Used the backhoe to get it off the trailer, so that’s what I did with my kubota today. Looking forward to using it.
Thanks B737 for the local encouragement
I love that it came with a free toplink :ROFLMAO: kills me!

Nah, I’m sure there are some rough ones here, maybe I’m just the only one that posts my oopsie moments!
I wasn't a member of this forum when I did $3,000 worth of damage to the BX. I had Kubota insurance and used it. It involved a very large maple tree trunk that I cut down and hauled off for an ex coworker. A large section rolled and smashed the front of the BX. New hood, new front grill, new lights, new exhaust muffler, and new stickers.

Got my “step” off of my BX25D and ready to install the new step (“Linex’d my step” post). Need to do some slot cutting on the new step also as the dealer ordered me the wrong one and some of the pedal slots/holes do not line up.
TodAy I will perform surgery and make it fit!

Did some bush hogging. Luckily we also had a JD with a 10' bush hog running as well. It would have taken forever to cut the pasture with my 5'. After we finished the field I took off through the trails and cut them as well as moved some dead trees that had fallen across them. The loader makes it much easier than doing it by hand but man I cant wait until the grapple finally arrives.

Got the B1700 out and mowed. Could have waited two more days for it to full dry out but then I would need a baler

Rigged up a red-neck rubber-tired tree mulcher…..in very small scale……;)

I literally could fill a tractor trailer with brush and downed trees. This is a start for small brush.

It’s amazing how much just chipping it magically shrinks it and then how much faster it rots as a chip pile. We had probably three tractor trailer loads when we got the WC-68. Literally chipped away at it over quite a few days here and there until it was all in two chip piles. Gave away a half dozen pickup loads of chips to friends who wanted them for mulch and the rest rotted in two piles that the middle of was so hot they’d burn your hand in the dead of winter. Have fun cleaning up!

NCL4701 - - Thanks.

I have some stuff that’s 30” in diameter. Obviously this little chipper won’t fix that.

Good thing is bigger stuff we can burn in our summer bonfires.

Like you said, I can hopefully knock the big piles down into much smaller piles, and produce some firewood in the process.

Sorry, but having bent many things in, out, down, but very few things UP: how did you do that?
I was was trying to save a trip hauling a overloaded bucket full of firewood up onto the porch…piece rolled off the top and dropped and the guard just perfect enough to release all the tension in the stamped welded brush guard and sprung into the hood…a million to one shot doc (fusilli jerry if you are a Seinfeld fan)I was just stupid…it’s that simple.

Had a tree in the grapple, was hanging all over the place, rear tire ran over the top and smacked the hood before I could stop it.
Better the hood than the head is what I say. Have a nice large dent in my B2410 hood, no idea how it got there either. Thats the only damage in 20 years though, so I can live with it.

I got the JD 1209 MOCO out Sunday and started doing repairs on it. Found out the PTO was way too short, don't know how the PO was using it since there are set dimensions for hooking it to any tractor. I built a new PTO last night, have to put the guards on it still, but to measure I hooked up and drove it around right turns, left turns, straight ahead in transport and cut modes to size the shaft.

It was 90* here yesterday, that cab AC is NICE! LOL

Went to start and there is no key. Must have knocked it out getting off tractor. Key fell between the floor board and frame into a deep pile of red cedar chips and saw dust. On hands and keys trying to find the sucker.
A little bling added to keep key. Sure hope the wife does no get jealous.

Exactly. I should have stopped, dropped and repicked up the tree, but I was glad to have a hold of it after ripping it out.

Today I strapped my backpack blower into my BX bucket and proceeded to blow sticks and winter debris off of part of my grass…getting ready for mowing next week with the new Kubota ZT

Didn’t think of pics…all done now. Not hard to imagine though…set blower on bucket, secure with ratchet strap, secure nozzle in an applicable direction, and BLOW! Of course had to get off the seat and start the blower first…😂
Best part is you can tilt the bucket for maximum blow (angled more to the ground’for stubborn debris) and also tilt the bucket up for distance blowing. My blower is a very powerful Redmax blower that I used to use for my lawn mowing business.
