So today I just needed some good old Kubota Tractor Therapy. Seems like moving the logs of those trees that Bob pushed down, then I cut up would be just what the doctor ordered.
First, I needed to detach my bucket and attach my pallet forks. Easier said than done on uneven ground, but after a couple of tries, I got it. I love the quick attach system! If you are considering buying a tractor with a front end loader, I highly recommend investing a little more for quick attach. It will open up a whole world of front end attachments.
I started with the smaller logs first. Some of you are probably thinking “he needs to get a grapple”, but I’m not convinced. I think I can carry a lot more logs with my pallet forks.
As I get to the biggest logs, I play it safe and just carry one at a time.
These logs will actually serve a purpose where I am dumping them. They will be the back stop for a shooting range just behind my new shop.
With the logs moved, I need to do something with those stumps. They are too heavy to pick up with the forks, even after I knocked some of the dirt off the root balls. So I swap my forks for the bucket so I can push them to their new home, wherever that’s going to be.
I decide to tuck the stumps into the woods down the hill to become a wildlife habitat.
