Well it's a Duetz/Allis 5220 26HP diesel 4x4 gear drive with 3 speed ranges. So it's not big, but not a lawn tractor either. It's perfect for what we will be doing with it.

One branch got hung up in another and hit the shed roof and put a hole in it. But the customer is a friend of my business partner so he was like "oh well" ;)

While he was using the tractor the power steering line blew but he fixed it. We still have the 2 3ft+ across logs to get out yet. One is going to get slabbed the other is firewood. ;D

That "little" Duetz/Allis tractor is a monster for what it is. We figured the piece we picked up in the pic was at lest 800#s and I had 400#s in the bucket to keep from doing wheelies! :p
It was well worth the money I paid for it. Next is to make some money so I can replace all the hyrdo hoses and clean it up a bit.

It sounds like great fun.
Never had a chance to work with machines like this but I definitely could use one like this as garden help.

Right now all I can do is get my lawn tractor with some chain to pull toothpicks, not trees out ;)

My business partner took the one log to the "slab guy" yesterday and he said it's close to 1200K #  :eek:

The weeping elm is Ulmus glabra 'Camperdownii'. The red-leaved birch is the Royal Frost hybrid. Looks like a few Thundercloud Plums back there... :)

Those tall ones in the back are silver birches.

Grafted elm - nothing special. Makes it through the winter without any loses.

good eye, the red-leaved birch is always hard to guess and to be honest I have no idea what's it called.
Got it from my wife :)

Crimson Frost is the larger purple-leaved Silver Birch hybrid and Royal Frost is the smaller and more borer-resistant Crimson Frost x Whitespire. ;D

That and boning up on your plant knowledge, Panda. LOL Here's a seedling Gray Birch my dad and I planted back in 1970 that I had to save from a stump sprout cluster after the original succumbed to severe drought and a subsequent borer infestation... 8)

My plant knowledge is OK, it's translating the names to English that sucks :)

Your birch looks great. It's nice when a tree has a story to tell. It's like having a family member and seeing it grow old with you...
