We think plowing here is fun, check these guys plowing on almost a dead run to keep up with the tractors. Its amazing what kinds of machines are found overseas.

Those are some neat machines. They are really hoofing it on the dead head, aren't they?

Pretty big rigs for a walk behind tractor. It's a different world over there in terms of brands of equipment.

My VB in 3rd/high range is quick, but nowhere near as fast as some of those monsters.

Thanks for the video. That was fun to watch. I'd love to have one of those big two-wheelers!

I dream about getting one of those someday. I am a member of a German walk behind tractor forum and those are the tractors they got over there. You'd be amazed the loads they'll pull. One guy was pulling good sized shrub stumps with his.

Some of those European machines are quite impressive to watch on ytube, and its amazing seeing all they do with them. I've never seen any specs on em as far as physical size , tire sizes, weight though, but Im sure they must dwarft a Gravely or any other machine we can obtain here in the states.

I agree, the Europeans have the Two wheeled tracors down to a science. Most impressive and they do pretty much anything with them you can do with a four wheel tractor on a small acreage. I've been eyballing the BCS & Grillo's for a while. on My hilly 9 acres one would do pretty well.
The only part really choking me up is the $8k for a baler to fit it. If I were to go that route,I might have to buy the rake and go really old school and pile the straw loose instead of baling.

Oh those balers look sweet if ya got a use for one, but I dont understand the high cost. At that price and with the limited amount of acres that can be covered it seems hardly worth it in my book.

Well they claim they will make a bale a minute. I think the limit to acres you can cover would be the amount of walking you can do in a day?
Age would have a lot to do with that. I can't walk nearly as far at 61 as I could at 30?

im thinking that if you let a bunch of kids see it, the labor problems would be gone. This thing is like a full sized video game.

Thanks Lauber1 for the post. When I watched the video I also saw another one with a fancy 2 wheeler. I'm sure it came up for others but I'll put the link here anyway.Jakob on Tour - YouTube It's a nice looking tractor and I like the drive line to the trailer.
