    Time for a spot of gardening . . . So I hired this Kubota U27-4 for a week.

    Playtime :thumbup:.

    DSCN8437.JPG


    Its 2.6 ton plus the three buckets, no problem for my Ifor Williams GX 106 (3.5 ton) trailer, but its a bit low for the 100'2 towbar - so the suspension dropped to 'Low'. It still towed OK.

    I rebuilt this trailer a couple of years ago and the brakes are excellent :dance:.

    I love diggers :dance:. The farm used to have an old JCB C3 that was held together by rust and gravity, I used to use that on occasion.

    The Kubota doesn't seem to be very powerful . . . Maybe the hire company have tweaked the relief valve to reduce the risk of damage :whistle:.

    Currently digging a moat around a 5ft dia beech stump after I dropped the dead trunk last week. I'm hoping the farm's Merlo Telehandler will lift it out (3.5 ton lift :cool:).

    Seeing those pictures of diggers on trailers reminded me of when I went to collect my other "car":

    Great bit of kit that.

    Is there any stump left? If so, Swedish fire log it... and then just wait for the week long burn as it gets into the roots.

    Oh yes !

    Its the nearest I get to weeding in my garden :laughing-rolling:.

    You should see what I use for pruning (A Stihl MS880 with a 48" bar :shock:).

    With 'Phoebe' for scale.

    Burning it out is a good idea. I had thought about a high-pressure hose but ideally some great muckle excavator for a couple of minutes. Various things turn up at the farm - I'll keep my eyes open.

    Back in the early 1960s when I was in the School Cadet Force (yup, an English Public School) I did a course on laying explosives. We blew out eight tree stumps about this size on a farm near Bath. Eight sticks of 'PE-2A' plastic under each proved to be too much :lol:.

    I guess schools don't teach this stuff these days (as we no longer have an Empire) :doh:.

    Now where did I put that Sodium Chlorate Weedkiller ? . . . . . . (been there too).
