I have had a lot of brush growing at the back end of my property and today was the day for it to go away. The area is long and narrow at about seven feet wide but I managed to squeeze into the space and teach the brush a thing or two. This thing was a tangled mess and the loader made shory work of it's removal stumps and all. If I had any brains I would have taken a before picture so the other five nasty stumps could be seen.

You have my vote. I'd sure be lost without mine.

Yes, everyone needs a loader.  To think I own an equipment repair business without a loader!  I've been running my Farmall Super A with a snowblade as a my "rescue tractor" to push in and pull out cadivers and patients. 

 

Time for a loader.

Ditto!  I even have a Cat 910 wheeled loader, but my GT's FEL is still invaluable.  After all, in places like you removed these snaggles, a big loader just can't fit.

You need to swap that for a Cat 992 Loader, now THAT'S a loader.

Had to edit the Cat model number.  Mine is a 910.  Not sure how/why I typed 902!  Still not a 992 by no means....heck a single 992 wheel assembly likely outweighs my entire 910!

The loader definitely took care of the cleanup. Perfect for the tight space too. I agree that everyone needs a loader. :D

I'd love to have one like yours, but don't have room for another tractor.  :ah_shoot:

I have three loaders and have used all of them so much that they've more than paid for themselves when I built our house. A funny thing that I have noticed is that I can get an older(50s or 60s) full sized tractor with an FEL for less than a GT with an FEL.

 

Once you have a loader you can make a tool rack to replace the bucket. My tool rack has 48" forks and an 8' plow. PLowing with an FEL in 24" of snow is a lot easier than a plane plow. My piles get 8"+ high. Good Luck, Rick

 

An example:  http://newlondon.cra...3696024764.html and the engine for it:http://newlondon.cra...3693806192.html
