    That's the kind of thing you'd think you might think of instead of stabbing a screwdriver through it, LOL.

    That's not a farmer's strap wrench. This is a farmer's strap wrench. (last weekend's project)

    The outer tire assemblies on my tractor need to be spun off after the hub is loosened. After a season of rain and mud, they need some persuasion!

    That's a Ventrac. 4WD, Articulated tractor. This one has a 32 horse Kubota gas engine (yes, Kubota makes gas engines!)

    Ventracs are made to be low-center of gravity, large footprint tractors for hills and soft ground. There are about 30 attachments, mostly front mount.

    I have a 72" mower deck, a leaf blower, a 52" snowblower, a 4' bucket with grapple and a set of forks... It's a true four season machine. Sometimes it feels like I spend more time running it than I do my Tundra. Which is good, because they are pretty close in cost!

    That is awesome! I'm always looking gn at different machines for sale, but I haven't seen any of those come up yet. And Kubota makes great engines, and pretty much great everything.

    I used to work at the Kutoba plant in Jefferson GA, I was a maintenance tech, so I got to see how the entire plant operated, and saw the tractors be made from raw plate to finished product. Really interesting process.
