How heavy is that bale on the back of the ATV? It doesn't even look to be sitting down all that much. I've hauled bales in a pickup box before but never tried on an ATV. Then again I have hitched the stock trailer to the ATV and hauled a couple cows across a crick that was too muddy for the pickup.

Kinda looks like an old bale, so it has lost alot of its original weight.

It was a fresh bale. Or as fresh as anything is after being rained on for a week and tedded a dozen times. Bales ran around 975-1010 on the livestock scale

Dunn, I like your little Kubota. Mine is very similar. Real little workhorse.

Brute 23 - ^ What is that thing called and how does it work?

The one with 4 wheels is a Kawaski Mule.
The one with 2 wheels is a bail buggy. It has two forks that slide under the bail. You winch it up like a boat. Handy to have around, cost from $350 to $450.

On a similar note, we're thinking of buying an additional tractor - one I can actually drive at 5'1". Any other shorties out there got soemthing that works well for them? Or warnings about what doesn't? I'm the one who's on the farm the most, and man alive could we get ahead on some things if I could actually drive the tractor! Bushhog work alone could keep me busy for a while.

My wife is 5 foot even and even the little kubota with the seat all the as far forward as it will go is a stretch. Plus about a 2 inch modification to get the seat further forward. She has top sit way forward in the seat and pack a big pillow behind her
