    Dropped & piled these last fall, before the snow fell. Now that the snow's on it's way out, It's off to the C/S/S area (the hard part), neither my saw or splitter have a seat on it;) . We had a beautiful weekend here, 6"-12" snow called for on tue/wed.

    I like the log wagon. I'm thinking that could really extend my season. I'm still working the easy stuff, close to the roads.

    It's nice to keep it out of the mud and my roads are about half thawed, them grapefruit sized rocks pop out all to easy skidding on them! I found that trlr for sale on the side of the road (all alum. ex govt.) for $300 & welded up the "bunks". Not as slick as those fancy logging trlrs with log loaders, but I have the tractor for loading. Looking for a good deal on a winch, or that maybe that'll be the next shop project.

    winch is awful handy. helps A LOT with my poor felling technique. It's nice to hook er up and get the heck away and pull em down.

    I'd really like a small is dump wagon for behind the tractor. Got the rear hydros.. It would be very cool to be able to haul gravel out to smooth up some of my woods roads.

    I had one, (dump trailer) the type you see guy's pull around with a pick up. I had hoses made up to run the dump off the tractor and it really was great for around a farm or good sized property. Look for a "beater" that may need a new elec/hyd "pac" & tires. For slow speed tractor use, you'd love it.

    I'm getting hung up on the off road ness part i think. the idea is to use it to haul gravel and wood chips to fix my roads.. I ought to buy a beat one and just drag her over the bad spots!

    I'll have to look around.
