I usually praise Scott as my farm genius when he's reading over my shoulder, but just so you know, I'm not so far off... This little beauty, that we've been calling the Grasshopper, is a conglomeration of used parts and junkyard steel reconfigured as the ultimate handy farm machine. It will lift 28 feet (enough to paint the house), fit any standard skid-steer attachment (bucket, forks, grapple, etc.), and do it all without marring my grass! With 4 wheel drive, 4 wheel steer, and low ground pressure it can get to the places on our farm that are perennially soggy. Since it's maiden voyage in the snow a few weeks ago, we've been using it to feed hay with good results.
