As a kid tractors had to be green if they were not steam powered or a Rumley Oil Pull. The ski area where I'm one of the directors has a 4x4 Kubota. It's used for mowing, moving dirt with bucket and utility. We also use tractor PTO to blow snow up to the ski jumps. I'm not sure about all Kubotas but the thing never ceases to amaze me with the abuse it's taken and it still working. The implement and power tool places are often shaking their heads with what we do to machines and tools. I guess farming, construction and landscaping are tame compared to ski areas and trail building. I know there are Husqvarna diehards and I've used those chainsaws but we have almost all Stihl saws, Kombis, trimmers and blowers. That's mostly proximity to a service place but it does seem like good stuff. Stuff our trail volunteers bring seems to break a lot but might not be comparable grade. I hate two stroke smell and noise so am happy when others do that stuff but always worry about chainsaw use. Those of us with the FSTA cert and experience know how bad accidents can be. Much less fun is our needing a new PistenBully by November. Anyone complaining in the used pickup truck prices thread will probably hush up if you do some PistenBully shopping.
