Hey buckhunter21.
These big toys are actually tools of trade. No, I am not a farmer by trade, I am in law enforcement. The big toys here are cumulative of mine and a friends. We own the land together. The great thing is that he owns his own landscaping business, so the Kubotas and IH are his. Most of the rest is mine accumulated over the years. My wife thinks I'm nuts. I call it a piece of mind. I love my little Yanmar. The thing is an iron horse that never dies and it fits in small places.
Like I said. I still prefer the smaller toys over the tractors though. Luckily enough, I have been plowing these fields and plots long enough so that most or the rocks are gone MSbadger. I usually only use the two bottom plow after a clover field has been in for three to five years in the big field.

Let's see: chainsaw, handheld brush cutter, rototiller, ATV, ATV disk, Moultrie spreader and a hand spreader.
Sometimes it takes quite a bit of work, but eventually it gets done.
