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.
All of mine have been posted before, but I like showing them.
2000 F250 4x4 V10
1970 F350 platform/stake
1968 IH Cub Cadet 125
1972 IH Cub Cadet 149
Not sure of the make, model, and year of this one.
Multi use haulers:
got a build thread or instructions for your wood leanto? i wanna make one like that. great stockpile you got there.
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
built 3, 16' sections
:coolsmile: Just love that little tractor. It's really cool. :exclaim:
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.
Whats wrong with it. Looks good to go. There is an 149 engine in Pa on evilbay as we speak. <$400
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.
Figure that one out!~ :lol:
A couple of my wood haulers. Missing the ATV and trailer pictures.
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.
Here is my 99 Ranger wood hauler. Just about ready to turn over 300K mi.
Figure I got my moneys worth. :cheese:
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!
Jags?? is that some kinda ford econline with the plow and the little dump box? in the last pic.
That is SWEEEEEEETTTTTT We all need one of those.
Lligetfa, can't beat the Kenworth T-800(I think) grapple load.
Wow! How long are those splits in that trailer?
They gotta be close to 24"
You must have a deep stove.
But sometimes the truck isn't necessary.
I burn E/W and the stove can take 22". Average split length is 20" - 22".
4.55 gearing; miserable gas mileage, pulls stumps in 4th gear. ;-P
