Boats have a couple tractors built in... run by a pto off the main!



Love having a little tractor, crazy what you can do with it! Imagine a shovel and a wheelbarrow, or a block and tackle, or a high lift jack, or a lawnmower... pickaxe...machete...truck and a tow chain...or your hands and back... just ridiculous how much work you can do how fast in comparison. My little 18hp Chinese diesel 4x4 ever dies... I'll buy another one!

I couldn't live without mine.  This summer the two big projects were a 1700 food driveway and my food plot.  We have spent many hours doing may chores that would have taken 10 times as long without our tractor.  Money well spent.   :tup: :tup:

I can see it going a little to far. When I've mastered using it to open a beer bottle, I might be nearing that point... but not quite there!

Keep the wind in your hair, and the sun at your back.


A gun is a tool, Marion, no better or no worse than any other tool, an axe, a shovel or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it. Remember that.

There's a lot to be said about having an ice cold beer in the afternoon and looking at the results of all your hard work. There's also the feeling of knocking it out, finishing your coffee, and going fishing!

These folks have some gently used tractors that could go for a good price:

Why did you go with Mahindra instead of one of the main brands ? I'm looking now for a tractor/mower and have pretty much narrowed it down to a Kubota L2501. 

 Side note I'd like to see that Operator open a beer without the special " attachments" on his bucket. Best I've done Is grab a water bottle with a Cat 325 excavator bucket and thumb and give it to my buddy in the ditch  :tup:
