JD 250

Sun Jan 01, 2012 1:03 pm

Ye Haw got a new toy :{_}: I've been wanted a mid sized tractor 40-50 hp for working in the woods three years ago. My brother Tommy disagreed and said we should get a skid steer since it could do a lot that a tractor couldn't do. So we have been looking off and on for a skidsteer for two years. They have been either too much, too far away or junk. I was looking for a Cat 236B. But we came across this JD 250 with 2580hrs that was the size we were looking for its got foot pedals which I don't like but I hope to change it to pilot controls. 64 hp turbo diesel 3 cylinder came with a bucket, pallet forks and the optional weight box so it has a 2100 working load and 3600lb lift capacity. It also has aux hyd on the boom so I can get a grapple bucket and a hyd posthole digger.

It runs great starts without any smoke and was well taken care of. It also has all new rubber. To say the least I can't wait for the ground to freeze so I can give it a workout.

Thanks Bill

We have been looking a long time but I think this one will do us well.

Thanks Rudi

I never cared for how much they bounce around. But their versatility and the way they work in the woods and tight quarters can't be beat. I'll be ordering a grapple bucket monday :{_}: Sure is going to be nice to pick up logs by myself and clean up all those brush piles :!:

Congrats on the skid steer. Very handy machine to have, they have about 100 uses. I have access to a Case 1845C that has saved my back on many occasions.

Thanks TwoTone

Thats one we were looking at too. Supposed to be a very dependable machine. While I have a few loaders they are either too big or small to use in the woods. As you said a very handy machine :{_}:
