Compact Tractor Implements

For those of you with compacts in the 20-50hp range, what implements and attachments do you have. What kind of tractor work do you offer? I just sold a B3030 and got an older, but much better NH TC33d. I have a brush mower, finish mower, loader, back blade and maybe thinking about a box blade and a york rake. But I don't have much use for those yet (I don't think anyway). Just curious to see how other people market tractor work.

How do you like your NH? I got the same one as you do. I haven't had much reason to use it yet. Just used it to move some firewood, stack some snow piles around my house, and I unloaded my concrete counterweight from my plow truck. So far I really like it. LOADS stronger than my B3030. Looking forward to using it this year and I'm ready to try it out bush hogging (my primary use for this machine)

Depends on your market but a tiller, disk and a drill. Tiller you can till up gardens and make a decent $ on it.

If you live in the sticks like I do than you can offer food plots for deer. You can make great $ on that if you get the right people.

food plots is a great idea. Does anyone make a small grain drill for that use?

I have a old Long 360, its strong, but only 2wd. I have a lot of implements, but the only work Ive don't with it for money is bushhogging.

Tractors are useful for installs and tree work as well as mowing acerage. Plus ther a lot of fun.

Yes I like tc33da has just enough power and still small enough. Two issues that have had was 1 a starting issue which was resolved using a starter relay. And 2 the linkage for the hst pedal and trans had stripped out causing me not to have forward or reverse. Keep an eye out for those.
Other then that it's been a great machine!

I right now I have a box blade, tiller and aerator for mine. I will be adding a soil pulverizer and auger soon. Not much brush hogging or field mowing in my area. I mostly use mine for landscape installs and grading.

Out of all my attachments, my aerator makes me the most money. I can aerate large properties faster than most of my competition as they are using walk behinds. I also have a few other contractors who have me aerate large properties for them.
