I have a friend who had this little 12 acre horse farm sort of place. I keep
some of the projects there, Max has his bits there in the barn too.
She has let the place go, and little pine trees have sprouted up over a lot of
it. I’ve been mowing it to keep the grass down but the pine trees are taking
So this other friend of ours says he has a little tractor with a bush hog I
could borrow to cut this stuff down. Turns out it is a little 2cyl Yanmar
diesel tractor, 4WD, paddle tires, low/high 3pd, 3spd PTO, maybe 4ft bush hog.
It’s the real deal, just a basic solid well made blunt instrument. This thing

My buddy has been trying to find a little bucket loader/forks for it but they
