I see the Kubota version pretty frequently on Craigslist, have thought about getting one but they almost never have a loader...Would certainly cut down my expense to mow on the farm. Two days work with the Super M is nearly $100 in fuel.

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 over. 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 is a total beast. It is unstoppable. It could probably climb right up a wall. Yesterday I cut about an acre of these pine trees and other scrub that were growing around the house. 3 low, 2300rpm, PTO in 2, the thing just slogged on and on cutting pine trees up to about 2in dia maybe 6-8ft tall. In 2 hours it burned about a gallon or gallon and a half of fuel. It mulched up almost everything, not much chunks of anything left. I was amazed at what it did. The blade has tremendous inertia like a big flywheel, a solid bar with flying blades on the end, very sharp. Another acre or so of stuff to cut, it gets boring but this little tractor is great fun. My buddy has been trying to find a little bucket loader/forks for it but they are very hard to find and pricey. I thought maybe he could find one in Japan and ship it over. I guess that would be pricey too. I feel like I want to go there and buy one, I am totally in love with this thing.
