2 Wheel Gravely Pulling Logs

I just bought a two wheel tractor (and L8 Gravely to be exact).  I bought a dozer blade and a rotary plow at the same time.  I got a two wheel tractor instead of a sub compact tractor because I only have 5 acres and most all of it is a steep hill.  I was scared of working a tractor on the side of a hill.

This video is my first real use of the tractor and is of my L8 Gravely pulling logs.

I spend the extra money and bought an adapter to run dual tires for more traction.  Also, I purchased a hitch ball so I can add a wagon later.

The tractor pulled the log relatively easy.  However, using a hook over the small ball hitch was difficult.  I should not straddle the chain as I worked.  With high tension a broken chain would end in disaster.  In my defense, with the light weight and the personal control of tractor made the difference.

At this point I haven’t used the plow.  I intend to use it to build terraces and raised beds.  I have tried the blade.  It did not work well.  That was with the single tires.  They were not fully aired, so I did not get much traction.

Finally, as I get more experience with this tractor, I will post more as I get better with the tractor.
