    I have narrowed it down to JD, Kubota, Yanmar (certain years and models), and LS...for now.

    My eye is on this one right now. I just need to see about a few things. Low hours, great price, within weight limits of my flatbed, just not sure on the width so far.

    Thanks for the review. Unfortunately, I don't think this will fit on my trailer (width wise). That would be a problem.

    LOL. Wish I could man. I just don't want a deck over GN. We already have a low boy 28' in our offroad group.

    Not sure how I forgot to have Kubota in my list. :confused: Usually pricey, but they are kinda like Toyotas IMO.

    Anything I’ve seen of Yanmar products has been positive too (mainly refer power units), just make sure you’d have good dealer support for parts in your area.

    That Deere 110 looks decent, but if it don’t fit...

    And unlike a lot of ag. tractors, there does not appear to be any room or ability to narrow up the track with on that beast - typical for a backhoe.

    The John Deere 110 is out, and this one in particular. I'm not spending another 5-6K on a deck over trailer that won't be used often, when we have two flatbeds that will fit 95% of all our other needs.

    I contracted the Craigslist seller, and then he said it's his brothers machine. I emailed him, and he was so nice to drop it another 1K for me to 11500.00 (which is super low for this machine with 675 hours). Then he informed me the tractor is in Nebraska and his medical team is leaving in two weeks and the tractor needs to be sold ASAP. I informed him I could be out as soon as next week. Then he informed me the sale will only be processed on eBay.

    So I ended that conversation, and totally expect a long lost Nigerian Prince brother of mine that just died has just left me 25 million in a bank....

    I hate scammers.

    I was thinking about this all night. The mind wonders for sure....

    This is what I want to do:

    On the side of the third bay garage, I want to bring grade up 2.5' with a retaining wall. I will use 2'x2'x4' concrete block, like this:

    The ones locally are around 1100 lbs each.

    s-l1600.jpg

    On the side of the house, RV parking with hookups. I would have to bring up the grade 1' closer to the fence line, but towards the rear...2.5' at least.

    As you can see, my driveway is a steep one, and is very sporty when 20" of snow (or more) and a 7% grade. I believe that with bringing up the driveway towards the road (around 1.5-2'), this can be lowered to around 5.5% grade. The driveway is crowned pretty good, and if you get off to the side, you are screwed. This was 4 days ago, and it brings on the suck:

    IMG_1805.jpg

    IMG_3659.jpg

    Now in the back, this is a want. The wall will have to be 3.5' just to get the back area level. To increase the wall for fall protection, building a porch with rock features, fire pit or pizza oven (probably both).


    IMG_3660.jpg


    Now to the point of this post:

    Do I need a $30,000.00 investment? Now before anyone says "hell yes", consider the following:

    -I can rent a Kubota Tractor from my friend for 250.00 for the month. Pretty cheap. His tractor can not lift the 1100 lbs blocks, but can do all the earth moving I need.
    -Skid steer rental is 154.00 a day. I actually know the owner of a equipment rental business, and he said I can come get whatever, whenever, but I would never use a friendship like that.

    So, I can rent a skid steer 194 times to break even on the tractor. Even more if I do a weekly rental. Once this work is done, a tractor will really not be needed. I already have a mower, and eliminating more grass makes it difficult to run a brush hog behind a tractor.

    Now back to the snow removal. I live in a special place that just gets hammered with weather. Funny thing is, we haven't seen a really good 3-4' dumping yet. That actually has me a little concerned. We keep a fair share of reserve fuel, generator, food on site from Oct-June 1st. We would be fine being stuck inside the house for a week.

    So ideas and options for snow removal? Snow blowers would work for he driveway, if attached to something. The walk behinds just wouldn't cut it.

    Plow on ATV? Plow truck?

    I have found a few JD 3039R tractors with a reasonable price tag....and a cab.

    The problem with a truck plow (atv too but on a smaller scale), especially with storms over 12" is you'll run out of traction unless you plow every 4" and unless you push it quite a distance off the drive you run out of storage space.

    A blower makes the most sense IMO especially if your talking worst case. A plow won't move 3' of snow well unless it's attached to a D9.

    A 3pt blower is literally a pain in the neck, front mount blowers are typically smaller and more $$.

    All of which still doesn't answer what you attach them too.

    Just thinking out loud also. Do the rental for everything you listed above, head to the Deere dealer and buy a 44" blower, weights, chains, and enclosure for your D140.

    Not the most fun thing in the world but you'll only spend maybe $2500 on the attachments.

    My work 4610. So far has done everything I’ve asked of it. I know before me tenure a former employee dropped a tree on it, some some of the body panels don’t line up to spec and it got a new radiator. Have a bucket, woods brush hog and a 72” rotary mower, along with the forks and hitch blower. Have repaired a few dirt roads in the park with just the bucket blade as well.95BD0FFA-AFF1-4E74-BB9D-BB2F8605D9B2.jpg1CF6CC18-4EE4-4158-945C-1C753130F03B.jpg

    I also have a 2305, but I feel that’s too small for what you want it for

    That’s a good idea.

    4384AAD4-75F0-4E93-B20E-FF965B5EBEFE.jpg

    I guess the cab would keep the snow off the seat. Lol

    All jokes aside, that’s a great idea and I would have totally thought this would be enough. 22.5 hp, 44” snow blower, chains and weights. At full power, PTO engagement, the tractor will not get up my driveway in snow. Just spins.

    This does make me wonder once the grades are not as steep, how this would work better for snow removal. Right now though, that hope is just a fart in the wind.

    I bought the one on the trailer for $2K with 400 hrs on it. Sold it a couple of years later to a friend of mine for $1800 with 750 hours on it. He has it up to 1500+ hours now.

    I bought the smaller one right before I sold the older one. Paid $2250 for it with 130 hrs on it. These things will run forever.

    Shitty, but I had to chuckle at the Nigerian Prince comment. This is texts regarding the Tacoma winch mount I’m trying to sell from the other day.

    I know you said no to the idea, but after seeing your planned uses, I can’t help but think a larger skid-steer and 4 tire chains would suit you better.

    Partly because my Kioti buddy bought just that for snow removal, earthmoving, and material handling with forks. He picked up an ‘08 Case 465, and unlike the “mini” skid-steers he’s owned several of, this thing is very stable and neigh unstoppable. Loader moves at about 3x the speed of a tractor loader bucket too. He loves it.

    I logged a lot of hours pulling gang mowers with one similar to this MF while working on a golf course in the late 70's, the tractor had served for years before I operated it. It would haul ass across a fairway on turf tread.

    I'm almost thinking something like this might be better. Put a blade behind it and go...and maybe some chains on the tires.

    With all the scams on CL, I feel like we may end up with something like this...also on CL.
