I looked at the new ones and I agree the older ones are made better, my local NH. Dealer quit selling any NH. Under 75 horsepower and started selling Kioti compacts.TC and TZ series were the best New Holland compacts made. Much better than the Workmaster series today. Enjoy, it will last you a long time.
And that is a hell of a price with a loader.

That’s a good dealer. 75 and up are made here. The rest are imported in. They are made by LS but are a cheaper version of those.I looked at the new ones and I agree the older ones are made better, my local NH. Dealer quit selling any NH. Under 75 horsepower and started selling Kioti compacts.
How do you hook that to the tractor?Get yourself logging wire with quick disconnect for dragging trees. https://www.westechrigging.com/wire-rope-cat-choker-038x08.html?gclid=Cj0KCQjw2K3rBRDiARIsAOFSW_4s1_AkRK1dKzChkf97LZqTtARRbA1w43wm8EusM63a5I4b3FpwpoMaAs3VEALw_wcB
I hook ours up to our Rear Implement. We have 8ft rake, Plow and Blade. Plus added 2" ball. Lots of places. Too handy to do without. I had big one made up locally. 35ft one for tension when I need to drop big ass tree not on my ass or anything important. Great for hauling them out of the forest too (smaller size).How do you hook that to the tractor?
Plus it gives you time to hop off and snap a few pictures, while wondering how much "fun" you'd be having if you didn't have it.If you’d been in my yard an hour ago, you’d have seen a woodshed driving down the hill from my barn to the wood lot, on a 3-point forklift on the back of my tractor. I really don’t know how people do this hobby on any scale, without a tractor.

Congratulations, it looks great.
I know what you are saying. Once everything is done/organized the skid is not of a big use. A normal tractor can do the rest. I am in middle of many projects and the skid steer is unmatchable, is like I can't do anything without it. I become stupid if I don't have the skid but once I am done, my beat up old Kubota will takes care of everything else. Now I just use it to mow the fieldsI bought a skid steer a year ago but I haven’t really found much use for it yet but if I had more land I’m sure I would. I only have a 2 acre lot here and I’m not sure if I’ll keep it yet or not. I might find it more useful if we have a heavy snow year again like the latter part of last winter was. Time will tell.
My rear tires are filled ( approx 900lbs ) on my tractor and they still come off of the ground a little when moving a 330 gallon IBC tote filled full of wood. Make sure you have an implement on the back of the tractor or have the tires filled before you start moving them. I usually have an implement on the back of my tractor during the winter. During the summer I leave my bush hog off when moving stuff with the tractor because it is so long. If you get the tires filled, get them filled with beet juice. Calcium is cheaper and heavier but it will rust the rims out.Pallet forks are supposed to be here tomorrow can’t wait to see if it will lift an Ibc tote filled with wood.
Getting one that holds 800 pound or so plus the weight of the box itself, that will be over 1000 pound.Do you know of any that could hold over 1,000 lbs?
