    Nice addition Mark, Ebling is really cornering the market on tractors with the ebling/blizzard combination on them in the area. I've seen them all over the place. To bad its not snowing around here.

    Heres a few pics of company out of Muskegon, Michigan. These are parked at a local Kmart. Some orange for you guys who don't know that green is best.....

    2 Kubota's w/ blizzard and ebling and a Cat 930 loader w/ a daniels blade

    Yeah they're M7040's, they look identical to Terra Lawns' Kubota's actually. Hope he doesn't mind me posting.

    They'll do the work of at least 1 1/2 trucks, if not 2. And for the same price as a truck. But longer lasting.

    I actually have a MX125 with a Horst 1016 Snowing as well.

    Man I got to stop looking at this thread. I've been debating selling my skidsteer and getting a compact tractor w/loader & grapple for doing tree work and getting a bushhog for it.

    Look away, look away. I really want one for snow work, to me a skidsteer will out work a compact tractor in a lot of landscaping scenarios because of the lift capacities. But a tractor almost always leaves less of an impact on the turf or soil. The ability to use front and rear attachments comes up also though. Do you think a compact tractor would be better for your applications KK, like doing tree work?

    The MX5100 looks awesome, what size is the brush hog? Thats a nice a trailer also, would those be 5200# or 7k axles? Also are those 3 inch straps, what brand are they, or where did you get them?

    Okay may questions are done, you may step down from the podium.
