We move to our house in June last year so the underbrush along the edge of the woods was really thick. We had beautiful weather Saturday so we began cleaning up the edges of the back yard. I borrowed a friend's B7100 Kubota because I needed a little more than the GT's were up to.

here are some before shots.

Looks like you got to enjoy the nice weather, and get some seat time as well.:bounce:

A great day to be outside! Is that your box scraper, or does it belong with the Kubota? That sure would be a handy attachment to have.

That blade goes with the kubota, but we have one for our jubillee as well.

Did your dad ever work on the jubilee yet to see why it was shooting the hydro oil into the motor oil?

Looks like you got to spend some quality time outdoors and not to mention some seat time.

If I remember right, the hydraulic pump bolts to side of the Ford's engine. That's the only way the hydraulic oil could be getting in the engine. Time for a hydraulic pump rebuild, or new one.

i know the thread is a little older, but give me a day, a skidsteer, and a brush cat and that land would look nice and clear!

I need to get some more pictures, I have been slowly working on this area all summer. Probably should throw some grass seed out on the areas actually. But that would need water, and it's not raining much these days.
