This morning my nephew's wife delivered thier baby (thier first!). Gwenyth came into the world around 6:39AM and weighed in at 8 lbs, 8 ozs, and 20 1/2 inches! Mom and baby are doing great. I hear what you are saying about Cobb's requirements, but they might not work in your situation. Speak with a couple of well/water system installers. I think they will tell you to put in a pressure tank at the well, along with the control box for the pump and then run a line to your large tank. Then you will need to install a booster pump between the tank and the line running to the chicken houses. The problem with trying to use pressure tanks is that you have to have water coming into them in order for them to supply you with pressure for the water coming out, and that once you deplete the water in the tank to the point that the pressure is equalized you end up with no force to increase the pressure to water being supplied. (I hope my explaination isn't too confusing.) As your tank will be at a low spot in relation to your chicken houses, or wherever else you will be needing water, you will want to increase the volume and pressure of the water in the line. Just about the only way to effectively do that is with a booster pump. Mahindra has a number of nice sub CUT tractors like what you are describing. Personally though, I would go a little larger so that I have enough power to run some larger implements (nothing like what your 6000 or the 7010 can handle, but larger than what my 22hp can). Also you might find that with a 35hp tractor you can do some of the lighter work you have been doing with your 6000 and move on up to that 7010 with cab and use the implements you have for the 6000 for the heavier chores. Happy New Year! Kevin Joel,

Everything is for sale if the right price is offered. Unfortunately, none of them are Mahindras, and only two have loaders, the Kubota, and the Case crawler. Now, the Case crawler I think would be nice because it has a backhoe, but it doesn't have a 3 point, and is not concrete or landscape friendly. And, it's also 48hp, a little big for what you are lookin' for, but is a great deal. I think a skid steer would be nice for what you have. Our up-street neighbor has one, and he clears trees with it ev'ryday, (he has a tree clearing business), and it does fine, even in the woods. I have done my homework on all equipment and skid steers just have so many attachments available, even 3 points on the front. But I'm sure you'll make the right decision when the time comes. Kyle Have a good New Years! Joel

Everything around the houses is either lower or on the same level. Cobb specs require the pressure tanks. The well is only about 100 ft from the houses. I don't thik pressure will really play a big role. On the smaller tractor I was thinking something 30 hp with 4wd, HST, and a loader. I plan to buy a cab tractor soon and probably keep the 6000 too. I just don't see spending the money for a skid steer since it would only be used for cleanout. We're getting lots of rain here today with thunderstorms. Crazy weather for December. Kevin,
