Default LATB- what is/was your first tractor project on your new farm?

Today, my fiancťe announced that she had the whole day to spend with me (rare for a very active real estate agent, let alone on a Sunday).

I asked her what she wanted to doÖ she wants to go up to my tree farm and do some long neglected bushhogging! I definitely picked a good one!

She could have suggested that you both go to the bedroom and you do some bushhogging!

Still waiting on the dealership to install the grapple/3rd function hydraulics.

Hopefully pick up the tractor this week? I did pickup the trailer because I needed to move some materials around. An open flatbed equipment trailer is excellent having materials loaded with a forklift.

Job one is cleaning up the mess / debris left behind from the tree harvest. (Main reason for the grapple)
Then bush hog the natural areas that perimeter the homestead area. Along with fence post drilling and fence install.

Iím also still considering a stump grinder.

Once I get the tractor there wonít be many days where it sits idle. Although we have a couple camping trips scheduled.

A word of adviceÖ donít buy a stump grinder from the JD dealership. I didnít check around. Apparently the JD dealership only has so much wiggle room in price.

Had I bought from a place in the Atlanta area I could have saved about $800 by using the discount code TTWT (from a YouTube with the channel Tractor Time With Tim). Their prices are much lower plus that discount code gives you an additional 5% off. When I confronted the JD salesman who sold me everything else he just said his hands were tied. I definitely wonít make that mistake again. Lesson learnt.

This is the one I got from the JD dealer. Itís from Woodland Mills. The damn thing is built like a brick shithouse. I couldnít believe it when I picked it up. Itís massive.
