    (Video) Heavy Hitch Quick attach front weight bracket in use

    I haven't posted a video here for quite awhile. I thought you might like to see how the Heavy Hitch quick attach front weight bracket looks on the 1025R.

    It really is "Quick Attach". It fits perfectly on the quick attach brackets (which I already had for the snow blade).

    You'll hear my opinion about "wood chips" in a garden. I'd be interested in your opinions.

    Oh, and I'm biased, but I think Katriel does a pretty good job handling the tractor :-)

    Love your videos Tim. Thanks very much for making them and sharing them. Also as a father to a "little girl" who is now 26, I think it's awesome that your daughter still wants to hang out with her pops, and I think about how much these vids will be treasured by your family 20 years from now. Very cool man, very cool! And also since I'm a member of this forum and one of our sworn duties is to help one another spend money, I think you need a drone to take your videos to the next level!! Imagine aerial footage of loader work and tilling and such!!

    Wood chips are a poor choice for use in a garden, the primary reason being that any organic material in an active state of decomposition will tie up soil nutrients. Perhaps the bigger problem is that it may take several years to fully decompose and who wants to deal with the sticks and twigs for years to come?

    I'm an advocate for mulching the garden, to help with weed control and moisture retention. One of the best combinations I've come up with is a layer of news paper (don't use the clay based paper with the shinny/slick surface) with a couple of inches of grass clippings to hold it in place. IF you have lots of grass clippings, skip the paper. Put it down right after planting and till into the soil in the fall, nothing left by the following spring. This too ties up nutrients, but a little 10-10-10 tilled in takes care of that and it will mostly decompose in one season. It's important to till it into the soil after the garden season to help it decompose.

    Good luck with the garden!

    Thought about the drone idea a year or so ago. The biggest issue is that we're already taking too much time with the camera(s). Hard to get the project(s) completed!
    As many of you know from trying this, it isn't easy to get decent video of a project in action. You get "one shot" at the tree falling, the stump coming out, etc. If the camera shakes, the audio is poor, etc during that moment, well, tough. Would be even harder to keep a drone hovering overhead. I guess I needed another child or two :-)

    As you may already know, Katriel is in China. She maintains a blog when she has decent internet connection: Make Time For Seeds - Beginning My Journey to End Hunger

    Thanks for your comment.

    Great video Tim. Katriel knows her stuff. Know what you mean about the front weights. I use 5 on the front of mine but it's just not enough. Going up hill it still would like to raise the front just a tad. I like the weight bracket you have and yah I don't think the weights will come off.
