Best Christmas present ever...

Almost 3 years ago my wife and I and our 3 boys moved to Southern Maine. Only have acre and half but it is contains a lot of trees growing over a lot of ledge. That 1st winter the first of many mature White Pine trees fell. The following December we had a really bad ice storm and some more trees fell. So when the wife and kids asked me what I wanted for Christmas I replied 'a tractor'. Wife looked at me like I was crazy, laughed and I go the usual unwanted, unneeded stuff that sits in the basement somewhere. A whole year goes by, more trees go down. But this time I have 2 chainsaws. First one a 'home owners' saw and then a real professional grade 60cc beast. But the trees keep coming down faster then I can cut them up, split 'em or use a come along to pull them out of the woods and into a trailer to take to the dump. So as Christmas approaches this year and the wife asks 'what do you want for Christmas'. 'A Tractor'. Well she gave me that look again. But this time I took matters into my own hands. Searched Craig's List for a few weeks and even went and looked at a few. Learned everything I could reading this and a few other forums and talking to the sellers. Wasn't the Mrs. surprised when I said, 'I found my Christmas present.' She only asked how much. Alot less then she had imagined and she knew I would buy it anyway. 'Hercules' is a '66 Ford 4500 Industrial TLB. First tractor I have ever owned and I LOVE IT. First diesel I have ever had and I am learning how it runs, how to use it. Pulling 10' by 18' to 24' tree trunks out of the woods with chain hooked on loader. 'Plowed' the gravel driveway with it after we got 2' of snow. At work I get to brag to the bean counters and IT nerd co-workers, 'I bet my Xmas present was bigger then yours!' A lot of them think I have lost my mind when the see a pic of it. I have only had it about a month and have used it about half a dozen times so far but I am hooked. Hard to tell if the guys in the neighborhood are annoyed as it sits in my front yard or just jealous, LOL. PPete
