That's one thing I''m looking at. Something small enough I won't have to cut a highway to get up on the hill and pull trees out.

Think wheeled logging arch.

Then start thinking of ways to convince 5 daughters pulling a logging arch is fun.

Well, I'd build an arch anyhow.  Large diameter wheels too.

Not yet, I've worked on a few over the years but we always used larger tractors.  Now that I'm retired and not farming I just need something small and agile for the light mowing and gardening I'll be doing. Hardest I'd work it would be moving firewood.

We used a couple of JD 1010's with FEL's on the farm for everything from manure to fencing to moving dirt and snow. They were just very very handy to have around.

I've been looking for a CUTs but everything I find is imported re-badges. So I figure I should just buy a Yanmar and at least I'll be sure who made it.
  1010's? how did you keep them running? those moline tractors never held up as well as the waterloo made ones for some reason. my uncle had a 2510. it ran fine until you needed it then something was broken. he always had to come and get our 3020 to finish. the 2510 is long gone,  well so is he, but the 3020 is still plugging around. it has been on this farm longer than i have and i doubt it will ever leave.
you can put candles on a cowpie, but that won't make it a birthday cake.

All the other ones I saw were garage queens. Always sitting in the garage being worked on.

But the two we had just kept putting along. We did normal maintainence on them and that was all we ever did to them. I think we were just lucky and got two that were made on sober days.
