.... I have the same bucket loader on mine (BUSH HOG). At the time that I bought it, they would lift more and were more reasonable than the Kubota bucket. My tractor looks a whole lot like yours but slightly newer. It's hard for me to realize your tractor is 21 years old !

Good job and thanks for sharing.

vadeere, I spent 11 years in Leesburg, VA. Got back to Louisiana 5 years ago. Just in time for tropical stroms Lili nd Isidore and hurricanes Katrina and Rita. Never thought I'd prefer snow to rain!

1441 hours when purchased. Now has about 1600. Previous owner used it to bush hog 6 acres. It was maintained by the owner and his local Kubota dealer. I spoke to the shop foreman before I bought. Did I mention it has POWER steering!

This will be my spring project

This 18 hp (I think) is a 1972 Yanmar, diesel, two wheel drive with only 918 hours. It's been used to cut (Woods belly) four acres since it was purchased new. Now I use it to pull the trailer in the pic for yard cleanup. I have an Exmark Lazer HP for grass cutting. Anyway, I'll probably clean, prep and paint it this spring.
