My dad and I went together to buy the biggest JD track loader they make, brand new. Won't be using it exclusively for wood but the grapple bucket and 6000 lb lift capacity will make gathering wood for next season ALOT easier. Snow cover has kept ground from freezing so I have only had limited opportunities to get out and use it. It weights 11,000 lbs, has 95 hp (huge for skid steerers). has a power fan than can reverse to blow dirt back out of radiator. 2 bolts the cab comes off and biggest tracks. Pilot hand controls, self level loader, creeper, 2 speed, ac/heat and all kinds of neat options.
