Hi all, new member to the forum and new 2025R tractor owner. This is my first new tractor. Before this tractor I had a 8N ford with no attachments or implements that I used to move trailers around. I needed much more versatility. Funny story, when tractor shopping I was dead set that I did not need the front loader and the salesman was insistent that I get that over any other attachments. I decided to take his advice and added the front loader and a belly mower as well as a box scraper and field mower plus the Imatch quick hitch. I use that loader more than anything! I am so glad I was talked in to that! I use it nearly everyday. What did I do before? I have no idea. It took me a while to settle in and learn how everything works and how to set everything up for best performance but I'm there now and quite comfortable with it.
This week I designed and built a rifle shooting / sight in bench that I can back up to and pick up via the quick hitch and take it wherever I want to set up, could be a little plinking or an afternoon of varmint hunting. Plus being connected the three point I can level and stabilize nicely, or I can set it down and come back for it later. It is so dang neat to be able to integrate the tractor to do the heavy lifting, plus I can use the front bucket to carry some supplies like a cooler of drinks for the day. This may sound corny but I don't care I'm having fun!
Today I got the bright idea to work a field that has never been farmed. I am not a farmer and I know nothing. I have a 10 acre area that is orchard grass and fern, I have mowed it but that is as far as I know to go. I want to plant it with something, hops I am thinking but I don't know what implement to use to make the ground loose and fluffy for planting. Is there an implement to do this that a 2025R can handle? This is what has led me to the forum, I am seeking information.
All the best!
