Used it a couple hours the other day to work on the pond, and then my brother came over and used it another couple hours on the pond. Updated pics coming soon for that.

I did some misc things with it already, and then decided to practice with the backhoe controls, and start removing some stumps. Not sure how long I have into this but it was almost an hour between digging / removing roots for those 2 stumps. Most time spent on root busting / removal than dirt moving!! One completely out, 1 more to go. The stumps are OLD, the roots are 100% dry and some are 8" around and are not busting up easily. Good practice, and the area will be free of stumps soon enough.

Todd, thanks for posting a picture of your new toy/tool. It looks great and I know that you will get a lot of use out of your new Kubota.

You look good in Orange Todd. A loader sure makes moving firewood easier(:

Thanks!

It makes EVERYTHING easier smile

Worked great taking down my old wooden garage door, moving a pallet of wood (with ratchet straps since I have no forks), etc.

Loving it.

Updated the blog with some new tractor pics smile

I was away yesterday when the rains started, and when I got home I had some work to do! THe tractor made the chore 15 minutes or less, and it wasn't back breaking. Ripping out concrete couldn't have been easy unless someone else did it smile
