Unfortunately last nights storm took out one of my Sugar Maples. It's probably 25-30 ft and I planted it when I first bought my house. These are slow growing, but beautiful trees and I sure hated to see it down. I will cut it up this weekend so I just couldn't resist pulling it around back with my 1614 until then. Not to big a chore, but my 1614 sure pulled it with ease. What a little beast!

Looked like a nice tree, but on the plus side you got to work the PK.

Thanks guys for the replies!

Cat385B I Plowed both my gardens under just the other day. I left the plow on cause I knew this would be a quick and easy job, plus I am leaving it on in preparation for our upcoming Missouri Plow day Oct. 20.

KC9KAS, I am in mid Missouri and it has been so dry, and such a terrible drought, that many of our trees are turning early. Heck a lot of trees just flat out died!

I use my PKs to pull logs, and from my experience I know that your 1614 probably didn't know it was there!

It did a fantastic job plowing! I wish that I had a good plot of land like that where I could have a garden!
