 Knocking down brush and small trees

I've got these little brush trees that grow like weeds. I started knocking them down & uprooting w/my bx2200 fel. These things can get big. Some are 4" diameter. It's such a feeling of victory!! I almost gave myself a heart attack last summer before the 2200 chain sawing and using pruners. The tractor makes it so easy--and FUN! First I push them about 2-3 feet above ground level, them dig under. Keep repeating till the tree gives up the ghost. This 2200 is a strong little tractor. Dont try it without weight on back though.

 Knocking down brush and small trees

Well, while I'm braggin, let me tell you about this blackberry brush. 8 - 9 ft high. REAL THICK. The stuff was just taking over parts of my pasture. I just uproot it with my FEL and BB. You have to be careful, you CAN get scratched. Again, it must be some primal 'man defeats nature's aggravations' deal. I have just enjoyed the heck out of defeating it.

The light weight of it has to be accounted for when pushing stuff down. I've thought about either a 2910, 7800, or else a bx23. I'd really have some jobs for fel AND Backhoe! Yah, a CAT would just be a dream come true to knock stuff down!

I used my 7800 to clear a fence row this past summer and had about as much fun as the previous posters. The weight and the power of the 7800 made the job easy, clearing brush up to 3-4" in diameter. Push it over and blade it out with the FEL. Did about 800' in a couple hours one afternoon.

Great machine.

If I go up in size, I think the 7800 would be a good fit. Do you finish mow with yours? I'm trying to grow bermuda grass & the RFM I use now works pretty well. It's a Bush Hog brand. I'll bet the 7800 rides a little better than the 2200 also, which is very important at my age. it's still 100x better than the old Craftsman though.

 Knocking down brush and small trees

Last weekend I pushed a new trail through thick saplings. It's an area of aspen regeneration where the saplings are 1" to 3" (most about 1"Wink yeah right in diameter and so thick it is difficult to walk through them. I just put the Kubota in 4th gear low range dropped the bucket about a foot off the ground and pushed through about 600'. The saplings went down in waves, many of them breaking off near ground level. It was like pushing a trail through a mature corn field.

I agree. Knocking down trees and brush is great fun! But I'll have to stop making new trails. My friends are starting to give me a hard time about the "Kubota trail density."

I have gottin in on some of that fun making trails through my timber. Having upgraded to a larger machine than the 790 Deere almost makes it feel like your on a Cat, as pushing tree's 6 to 8 inches and larger( root and all out) is now nothin for the 5205 as it weights almost triple the 790 and has twice the HP.

Plots1, you're just having too much fun! I looked at your tractors. Nice! That big JD must be fun to just crank and sit in. We've got a big population of deer here in Ga., I'm not a hunter, but wouldn't hesitate to bag one for the venison. Happy hunting!

Plots, I remember a few years ago sitting on a 5000 series JD and thinking that this was the tractor I wanted some day. Then when I seriously started looking and found out the price... I had to downsize my thinking considerably. Smile
