    I too made the mistake of taking my little tractor out yesterday. It is extremely muddy from the warm temps and rain in some spots.

    Steve, we spoke about tractors when you got your first. How did you end up with two?

    Why thank you, I found that little gem on Craigslist for 800.00 and drove it home btw the plow works perfectly as well. I am going to freshen it up with some new paint and go through the drivetrain this summer. About the only thing that is majorly wrong with it is that it needs a rear trans output seal replaced. Then it should be good for another 20 years

    I get my wood delivered by grapple truck, so my wood hauler is not really mine. Here is a pic of my wood hauler.

    That said, after I get the wood processed and laid up for a while, I haul it to the shed with my little poly cart.

    Sometimes I borrow my neighbour's trailer.

    I found a deal that was too good to pass up on last month. The 149 is quite an upgrade from the 125. 2 more hp, hydraulic lift, better steering, easier to work on, more comfortable to sit on, and 4 years newer. It was a non runner parts tractor and priced accordingly. The plan was to get it in good shape and sell the first one. we'll see how that goes. :) These old Cubs are pretty easy to work on, very durable, and pretty affordable too.

    That's much more than I paid for this complete 149. It needs some little stuff. PTO rebuild, brake pads, the wiring works but has been hacked up, freshened up paint would be nice too. I bought it near you in West Milford, NJ.

    The next to last pic is the most fun.

    Note the pile of yet to be processed stuff to the left of the shop (waaay out back). About 5 cords of that still left to do.

    1975 JD 110.Built like a tank,I routinely haul 500-600 lbs on these steep slopes.Have pulled a 2000 lb. log on a level section of main trail for milling or bucking,not many flat spots on the property however.Plenty of power,not much traction when ground is muddy or snow/ice covered,thats why I try to get as much hauled in before first big snowfall.Lucked out this year,all but 3 snags were dropped,bucked & hauled in to splitting area.Very much thinking of investing in chains for the old beast in a few months though.

    Chains will make a huge improvement for you. Well worth the $$$. Check out tirechains.com .

    I present Sherman, the Tank.
    This ol' '82 has roamed the earth for 5 more years than I have, but listening to the Detroit Diesel, you wouldn't guess it.
    It does everything I ask of it, but it cries uncle on the freeway (You would too if your last gear shift was 50+mph ago).
    Hopefully I'll run a trailer this year so I can be hauling 1.5 cords at a shot. At 150miles round trip, it'll cut my wood costs by a good chunk!

    Lligetfa, can't beat the Kenworth T-800(I think) grapple load.
    Beautiful picture!
    Wow! How long are those splits in that trailer?
    They gotta be close to 24"!!!
    You must have a deep stove.
    Nice work.
