Started on the quick attach on the bucket.

Ground off the really bad stuff and applied rust converter. Now wait for 24hrs to paint.

That Gerber folder is my every day pocket knife...er tool. If you didn’t know, you can mail that thing back to gerber they’ll either clean and sharpen or replace. All for the cost of shipping!

A little more info on the new BB. Tractor is rated for a 72in and at 1040bs. My BB2572 is 810 lbs and heavy is better on these, right?

3 questions though,

1) want to mount a tool box on the tractor, thinking a 50cal ammo can on the rear ROPS. What do you think, bigger, some place else and recommended extras?

2) dash instraments, like angle/tilt and a volt meter. The main dash is on the right fender so manage when using the BH. Maybe a cool LCD with a rear camera when I'm dragging?

3) hooks on the loader, it has none. Thinking 3, ends and center.

Input!!

First thing is finishing all the little service items. Still has a leaking hub which I can do for $50. Want more lights too.

My idea on the ROP is too remove the top and front, then hinge the rear loop or make it a slide off unit. Ideas welcome.

Little damage on the right foot rest and a cover is needed for those hoses. I know it is the wrong side, but I want a step on that side too.

Well, with the land comes other things, namely the Kubota tractor and the Maxx'd trailer. Not heading up for a few weeks with scouts and holidays.

Trailer works great, tows great and handles whatever I have put on it so far. It does need removable sides and a storage box for all the tow goodies. Also going to add a 6k winch I have laying around for good measure. Plan on a couple shipping containers which will need moving once or twice. Hydro solenoid got stuck getting the Kubota, but a couple wraps fixed that.

Tractor needs a little more TLC, looks like it was near the ocean for a while. Lights need work, general maintenance and the ROP will be modified. It needs to fold down to fit into storage vs getting HC containers that are double the price.

Plopped the bucket off by the trailers and parked it by the Polaris getting it of the neighbors yard who just moved out (of course I had their blessing)

Ordered a set of quick release pallet forks from Titan and will order a will a weld on thumb tomorrow. They have a great point system giving me $25 in points for the forks, and the prices are lower than Ebay, ship free. Getting the mechanical thumb for now, will add hydro later. Kubota is setup for a thumb, but it has a quick attach bucket, so a Kubota thumb is out (and crazy $$$) Already got the box/blade for it, left it on the trailer in the storage yard.

I would just throw the new hydro on.

Trailer back in storage, dropped the tractor bucket and stuck it by the side of the house.

Have so much to do to it and some to the trailer, so I will start another thread for that.

I got a set of huskies for the burb, they were crap. Paper thin and had like a 2 inch lip along the door.

Maybe that was because this thing is 30 years old, but they went back.

Being they are from an 70-80 el dorado front (not a light car) they might be fine for the rear then.

You wouldn't need to run fluid to the caddy caliper once it was pressurized.  I believe those pistons don't retract after closing the pad gap. ..they have a threaded ratchet type mechanism and iirc the ebrake lever is adjustable..a splines shaft. Been a while since I dealt with those...same as vette.

I believe that is correct.

True, did them on a 9.5 axle, worked great. Not sure if they are rated for the 8k sub though!

Spent over 2k at the tractor store today, but got a HD box blade. 3/8th wall, boxed 3 point pins and sacrificial ripper teeth.

Hydro oil is $103/5gal for the good stuff and $55 for the OK stuff (Kubota=Valvoline), need 15gal. 3 hydro filters, $200.

Service was another $800, that just included fuel filter, oil change and grease. SUpposed to fix the horn too (button missing) but not sure if it works yet :tongue:

Reminds me Ken I need to measure for a thumb. I have lots of rocks!

Was a pricey day at the tractor store. Service $800 for oil change, fuel filter, new horn button and grease!!

$200 for 3 filters and a over a grand for 72in Land Pride HD box blade. Others were 5/16 wall and pin only 3 point. This has 3/8 walls, captured pins with sacrificial rippers.

Here is a pic from the n/e corner. I drove up to about 100ft from where I want to build (front of truck. You can see the end of the road too (south)

Here is a sorta 3d pic. Plotting out the road, pad and well area. The yellow dash is where I was parked in the above pic.

My cell sits right where that new switch is on yours. Doesn't block the view and I can see it fine.

Like the new head unit, thought off and on about doing that in mine. I also have XM and rarely play CDs.

Can't believe it cost $100 for me to do an oil change today. Changed the trans filter too.

I will add it runs so much better now with the new gearing. Shifts without pulling as hard.

Finally got the speedo reprogrammed too, dead on. With 35s its turning 2k at 70mph. 37s should be perfect. Plus the ABS/brake lights are off now.

County did have free contour maps for both 30ft and 10ft, but the 10ft stops 2 parcels west of my parcel. 30ft (10mt really) is not bad, better than the 100 from USGS.

Mine is done. Weld on are about $500, but I need to measure the bucket first.
