    Thanks all.

    Tim it was your situation that even put the possibility of stolen equipment in my mind. I hadn’t even considered it until then. I’m just not that guy, or I’m just that naive.
    Thanks for the input on the differences between years.

    Our house is centrally located on our 5ac with roughly 3/4 acre of “yard” around it with a several hundred feet of gravel drive through the trees to the house. The acres behind the house are just trees. I want to maintain the driveway (box blade) but I also want to knock down/remove the deadwood. (Can I borrow your grapple, Tim? Lol) There’s plenty down already, but lots of standing deadwood and one heck of a pile of trees the prior owner put 200’ from the back of the house. Also, stumps. Lots of stumps.
    My desire is to clear the underbrush and push back the edges for starters. Make room for a future workshop and put in some trails for the missus and dogs to walk. There’s a slight grade, but nothing steep.
    I want a MMM for more frequent mowing.
    I have some trench work in mind for water drainage away from the house.
    Those are my short term desires. She has expressed a desire for a garden and chickens.

    Hello and

    I was in a similar spot as you when I bought my 1026R however long ago that was. I've only got 3.5 acres, but it is mostly wooded with a little grass around the house and I ended up trading my 1026R for the 2032R that I have now. The 1026R was a bit small, ground clearance wise in the woods. I know you are trying to be budget friendly and a new style 2032/8R is a big leap, but if you are considering buying new, a 2025R isn't that much of a stretch. I'm constantly amazed what our very own PJR832 does with his 2025R. You can check out his videos here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC8e...kbaWKJjRndmReQ

    I know it's easy to spend other folks money, but I work my woods a lot and wanted to throw that out there. I'm sure whatever you pick will service you well.

    Again Welcome!

    Dan

    I actually grew up in Michigan. I moved to Georgia to escape that sky dandruff, instead I get loads of tree dandruff every spring. I’m less allergic to the sky stuff, but “other people” drive better on the tree stuff. 😉

    And boy oh boy, I can see already that I could get my wallet in a lot of trouble here. A 2025 or better, eh? Admittedly, I really like the idea (And certainly appreciate the insight regarding ground clearance) but I feel like I’m already walking a tightrope with the CFO. I think I’m gonna need a brownie point side hussle. 😂
