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.
