I have one full time guy and one part time guy. I have never put the tractor in the box truck. I haul it with my dump or my 350. I did build the ramp on the box heavy enough to where I could if needed. I also added two leafs to the rear springs and had them rebuilt. It's been working great so far. As far as the tractor it would be great to be able to move full pallets but we make do for now. I really have more use for a smaller machine because of the size of yards we are usually in.

Thanks man. The tractor has come in real handy on some of our bigger trimming jobs.

I looked at a Deere, Kubota, and New Holland but ended up with my Cub because of the price. I picked it up for right at 11k with 66 hrs on it. I would have paid a lot more for a brand name. It's been great so far.

I picked up a dethatcher about a month ago from a friend. It had 6 hours on it and I gave $350 for it. This little thing is a beast. It's perfect for small lawn renovations.
