    I was pretty surprised at how high I was able to get these piles with "just" a 23 hp tractor. Surprised enough I felt the need to take some cell phone pictures and post them. Just look in comparison with the first floot of the building next to it. I always hear people knocking the small tractors saying they're useless, so this ones for you guys:waving:

    Really, thats interesting. So they make some parts here, ship them over there and then ship the whole thing back here? I'm not trying to sound jerky about it, I'm just wondering the real story of whats happening with that.

    The biggest reason I had my Kubota comment is because our local JD dealer is AWFUL. I like the tractor I have, but I regret buying it only because of that dealer. When I buy my next tractor, it will be a Kubota because the dealer around here is A LOT better and more reasonably priced.

    So I'm still looking for the perfect snow removal set-up. If you don't mind me asking, how much did you pay for the 2210, cab, loader?

    All together, brand new I paid around $17,000. Give or take a little. Thats with the tractor, loader, extra large 61" bucket, front blade, ballast box, heater, console unit with radio and switches, all the work lights, and beacon all including installation.

    Duramax, ya it did come from rosencrantz. I'm not going to get into to much detail here, but overall they just have an attitude of not caring about anything. I mean I go in there to buy a deere gator, and tell them I want the gator cx. The guy tells me no I don't want that, I want this bigger 10,000 dollar one. So he wouldn't even talk about the cx. And he only gave me info on the bigger gators. When I bought the tractor, communication was horrible. I was told they would finish prep on the tractor one day, a week or so later, and many phone calls later, they were just uncrating it... When I call for parts that aren't right there or extremely easy to find, they just hang up on me. I called for new tires for the 2210, they couldn't fuiger out what size they should be since I wanted to convert to R4's, so they just hung up on me. Its rediclous. And thats not all, I've had countless experiences with them. I'll never buy over there. Thats why from now on I'll be going orange, even though I would prefer to be green. MB really has their act together. If you want more info or want to talk more about the problems I've had with these people, send me a private message.

    Had to make some more room in our parking lot. Heres some pictures. I can't wait to see what I can do when I get a larger tractor sometime..

    The last picture doesn't put it into perspective, that wall is 12 feet high.
