I’m sure it would. It’s nice topsoil not super compacted.

 I don't have a plasma cutter so I've used a lot of cutoff wheels. Lately I'm 
enamored of the Diablo brand from Home Depot. They're very thin but well 
reinforced so they don't break real easy and have a thin kerf so they don't 
waste a lot.
I bought a 10 pack 2 weeks ago and I'm glad I did...

Re: [MBZ] Bucket loader?

2021-04-12 Thread Buggered Benzmail via Mercedes
The loader On my little Kubota is great for moving loose stuff around. I’ve 
moved probably 120yd of compost around, unloading from my trailer, spreading it 
from where the dump truck dropped 14yd at a time. It’s great for that.  I 
cleaned up a lot of old leaves/mulch at a friend’s farm, pushed some stuff 
around, quick work.  I got a blade for the back but it is just gravity holding 
it down, the hydraulics don’t push so it is limited in its ability to scrape. I 
got a 4ft tiller that does surprisingly well on hard dirt and for mixing the 
compost in. 5ft mower deck. It’s a great little all-around tractor within its 
limits.

You can dig with a loader/bucket but it's not ideal and you can wrack the 
loader with asymmetric forces.  I'd consider a box blade for scraping top dirt 
into piles and then use the loader to move the piles to the low spots.  Finally 
pack and level, again with a box blade plus wheel-rolling.

I use my loader a LOT for everything but mowing.

Does your machine already have the hydraulics for a loader?  I became a fan of 
hydraulic top/tilt control for a box blade but that may not be important to you.

Re: [MBZ] Bucket loader?

2021-04-11 Thread Curt Raymond via Mercedes
 My top 3 are New Holland, Kubota and Kioti. The last because I think you get a 
lot more tractor for the money in the off brand. Mahindra surprises me as 
being, generally, the most expensive. Deere is mid pack for price which 
surprised me too.
I really like the New Holland and we've got a good dealer right in Caribou.

 Up around camp is definitely farm country but where I live not so much. OTOH 
there are some bigger dealerships just a little ways west of us. These size

I had wondered why so many of the xx30 or 30xx tractors were 29hp, that makes

Re: [MBZ] Bucket loader?

Nope, it does have a DPF though. All tractors over 30 go have to have one. JD 
has a 3 series that they have a 28 or 29hp engine in to get under that rule so 
it doesn’t have a DPF and is several thousand cheaper than the 32hp. In fact 
it’s the exact same engine so I would imagine it’s just software de tuned.

Re: [MBZ] Bucket loader?

2021-04-11 Thread Curt Raymond via Mercedes
 Nice. The trailer is a flatbed to pull it on?Does yours use DEF?

The annoying thing about shopping for tractors is that all the ads say "Call 
for price" so you need to contact each brand to get a quote so you can compare 
them.
I think I'm going to submit for bids where I ask for a price on a 35-45hp 
machine, industrial tires, loader and backhoe, no cab. Submit your best price, 
no communication other than the bid will be accepted. It'd at least give me an 
idea what the prices are like.

 How much did you pay for your Deere? I've given up my idea of buying a 
construction backhoe and have returned to farm tractor. There are lots more out 
there and I'll probably end up buying brand new or nearly so.
Thinking 35-45hp so about the same size as yours. I'll be looking for a loader 
and a backhoe...

Re: [MBZ] Bucket loader?

2021-04-11 Thread Kaleb Striplin via Mercedes
I just got done using my big JD 4044m to dig out the gravel that washed out of 
one of the driveways and fill it back in. I think my loader can pickup 2k or 
more lbs. I know it can lift the front or rear of any MB with ease. In fact it 
can pickup the back end of a suburban.

Re: [MBZ] Bucket loader?

2021-04-11 Thread Curt Raymond via Mercedes
 A back blade would be the thing for skimming off soil, especially one with 
ripper teeth.
An x700 is a big lawn tractor but it's still pretty small, you won't be able to 
move much at a time. I've got a Cub Cadet 1650 with a real front end loader 
that is supposed to be able to lift 200#, not a whole lot of weight and the 
rear end will be pretty light at that point. I've got 25# wheel weights and it 
definitely needs more.
I think Jamie is right, you can rent a mini-excavator for about $300/day, it'll 
do the job in a couple hours at the most.

Re: [MBZ] Bucket loader?

2021-04-11 Thread G Mann via Mercedes
My advice is to find your local equipment rental yard, and rent a decent
sized tractor with a front bucket and a Gannon blade on the back.  Here, a
day's rent will run about $250, or, if you rent on Friday and return at 7AM
Monday, they charge you for "One Day Rental"  you pick up and return
with a full fuel tank, and there is an up charge for more than 8 hrs on the
hobbs meter use. The local yard here will also rent a trailer to carry the
tractor to and from your place. [You will need a truck capable of towing
the tractor / trailer or they won't rent to you for safety reasons].

For a one time charge, you get use of a late model well equipped tractor
that will do the job, and all in, it equates to much less than buying a
front loader or hiring someone with one.

The Gannon box blade is excellent for shaving dirt, most are also equipped
with extendable ripper teeth to loosen the dirt if needed, and you scrape
and drag a load, lift the Gannon blade to dump and drag another one.. soon
you have a long line of piles which are perfect to be scooped up with the
front loader bucket and taken to the other chosen location.. where you then
use the Gannon box blade to spread and smooth. Easy work no digging with
shovels and wheelbarrows..
My 0.02 worth.

Gravel and rocks are really heavy... I have a Kubota BX2730 with a loader.
I think its rated to pick up 800lbs.  Tractor is about 1400 lbs, add in the
deck, loader, and a 400lbs scraper on the rear (for counter weight) and its
over 2000 lbs.  It can pick up a load of gravel, but you can feel its

Re: [MBZ] Bucket loader?

They are no good for scraping and Digging and such, at least the one on my 
Kubota isn’t. Good for moving dirt around once piled and loose

[MBZ] Bucket loader?

2021-04-11 Thread Dimitri Seretakis via Mercedes
I’m thinking about getting this bucket loader for my John Deere X720 tractor. 
Any thoughts on how useful it will be? 

I want to use to skim off a foot or so of top soil from around my garage site 
and deposit to other low areas on my yard and grade. My garage still doesn’t 
have a driveway or entrance ramp. I’m going to create one with gravel and 
crushed stone. About 30-50 yards total so will use this to scoop it up, 
disperse and grade. I’m looking at the little buck loader not the little bull 
loader.
