I still can't figure out what the Y stands for... I woulda thought it was a Happy New Tractor Day... Maybe it's a lost in translation thing.

That looks like a machine that will work hard for a lotta years though. Congrats.

Scalesie is right, fat fingers, otherwise known as Oops!

Hopefully it's going to keep me gainfully employed for quite a while now. I have a list of things to do that you couldn't jump over and hopefully this little number will allow me to do stuff my back won't allow otherwise.

2 weeks is gonna seem like an eternity!!

Thanks mate I'll be trying not to roll and the ROPS should keep me alive if I do.

Kioti is Sth Korean and is Daedong which has a great rep like Kubota. I just hope the parts are cheaper!!

I can almost pension out my old Kubota now or at least give it light duties pulling a trailer.

I'm gonna be in Digger heaven on that little beauty!!

I might be visiting Britain next year briefly but not sure they will allow a "Coyote" in my carry on luggage~

Well I am sure it is the right thing and will save you much effort.
Worth the money for that, expect you can change the pickups on it too! [smile]

It's only got one pickup but it's a bloody ripper!!

Not only "picks" up but puts down too...Grin~

A quick walk around yesterday shows enough work to keep me going for the next 2 years I reckon and guess what?


I'm excited!

The 2 week delivery time has edged out to 4 weeks now and the dealer has it in a crate in town but there are 3 jobs this week before mine apparently.

Last estimate was delivery to me Friday but best not hang on that and so I really expect it sometime next week.

It seems a long, long wait! I have paddocks full of long grass and there are uncontrolled bushfires about 40 minutes north of us so you can imagine how keen I am to clean the place up before it gets too dangerous, cant you?

OTOH I did some practice with my Go Pro on a chest harness a friend sent me to trial that for the tractor jobs after I learn to use it. I did the lawns yesterday and shot some stoltifyingly boring footage of me going a around in ever diminishing circles muttering "Damn Rabbits" whenever I hit a patch of diggings~

The harness works though and hopefully I will record my "adventures" tractorwise for your amusement!

Thanks for asking.

Nice. Looks like you'll be having some fun! I grew up a city boy. Now I live in the beautiful Cascade mountain foothills. We only have a few acres but we need a tractor for all the maintenance. I have a little Kubota. Spent the last few days putting in new garden beds, moved the chicken coup, etc, etc, getting ready for winter. I'll never live in a city again. Green Acres is the place to be... Posted Image

Well it arrived @11 am as arranged and we spent 45 minutes on a walk around and then tentative steps for me in the drivers seat!!

Pretty strange at first especially the FEL but after the bloke went I had time to drive it around and get to know the controls a bit better. (lots of them)

After lunch I set about sampling it's capabilities with a range of jobs I had queued up. Just samples mind, to see if the tractor (and I) could do them.

Firstly I pushed a heap of dead blackberry canes out...easy peasy! Then I had a block of wood ready to get pushed under a big downed tree, I wanted it pushed under to support the trunk when I cut it from the rootball. Done in one go....happy with that! Then I grabbed a chunk of wood I've already cut off but left because it was too heavy to lift. Caught in the jaws of the loader I carried it to my wood stack and dropped it on the pile and the only thing that worked hard was my foot on the accelerator.

I tried pushing smaller felled trees around and can see that is going to work to a degree, then I tried pushing ti tree out and managed to knock a lot over. Returning later with a slasher on the back, knocking them over and skittling them with the slasher seems to be the answer for the smaller bushes.

I grabbeda bucket full of gravel and took it up to the start of entrance and tried to metre the gravel going out as i backed over the water damage but mastering that skill will be beyond me on day 1, so it ended up in 2 small piles which I dragged the bucket over filling in the low spots. Dead easy and once again no shovelling or wheel barrowing were encountered during the exercise!

Later I fitted my slasher and headed for the longest grass I could find and went through it without hardly changing revs! Slashing is gonna be a breeze now with power steering, short turn radius and some serious grass cutting grunt!!

Day 1 and we have a very happy Digger on his digger~

Here it is at home looking as flash as a rat with a gold tooth!!
