I'd be interested to know how the tractor does now with no front weight. I might take my loader off this year as well.

Time for a lunch break. I can that not having the loader on my tractor has definitly saved me time. I can get closer to obstacles and the ride is smoother not having the loader bouncing.

I feel like you should be in the market for a WAM. Maybe it's just but it doesn't seem like brush so much as just grass and weeds. Either way every time I see a new post on your thread I can't help but wonder if you have an competition what so ever in your area lol. Congrats on your success man.

Plenty of competition in my area, but i dont worry about them. I had a drill sergeant in Army boot camp whos favorite phrase was Attention to Detail. The little things can set you apart from the competiton in big ways. I let my work speak for itself.

Have a meeting monday to go over the final details on my largest bushhogging/spraying contract to date. Its with Union Pacific Rail Road, to maintain some track right aways and two container yards. Approx 55+ acres of bushhogging and 15miles of track to spray.

The tracks are less than a mile from my house and shop. A good friend works for UP as track maintenance plus my wifes grandpa retired from UP as a special agent. And lots of fone calls and research on my part.

By the way i love yur postcard.
