I always set the brake, it will shut off if I don't. Just about second nature after so many years. Just like shifting.
And I always lower the bucket all the way down each and every time. It's a just in case, but probably won't matter. I think the manual says to do that too.
I have never compared the two. Never seen an Igland.
They both weight the same??  
That would be mine deciding factor, take the one that weights more. Might be better built?? Sounds good.

Hi Ray.  Units are identical.  I'm going with the Norse because that vendor appears to have some coming quite soon.  It's $25 more....but another aspect, both vendors are good folks I think, but the Norse guy is a big implement and equipment dealer.  Think he sells Kioti tractors, which might be nice if I need a demo on cutting that pto shaft.  Kiotis are like my Bobcat.  👍

Oh, and your tractor brake/fel arrangement works for me!  Good to know, no issues.  

I might change my mind, but right now think my bucket'll just stay on.  Watched a YouTube of  a guy set up close to what I will be, and his machine was getting jerked around on snow, a little too much I thought.  Then again, I found myself cringing just a bit at his saw handling and a few other things in that vid.  No FF guy I don't think.

I have a twitch of firewood behind me and some in front too.  ;)
Meaning I have some firewood in the bucket too. It all adds up!!!
But saying that, the loader does get in the way turning around. But it's worth it to keep it on.
I have made many trips with a load of rocks in the bucket to fill in a wet hole and then came back out with it loaded with firewood.
I straddled an 8 inch dead fir that was on the ground once, when there was snow on the ground. I had a hard time figuring why the tractor did not want to stay in one place.
Get ready to use the left and right brake too. When hauling out just about all that the tractor wants and you have to make a turn, tractor might not want to turn. Step on one brake, it will turn, unless you are on ice.

Thanks bud, can't wait to get that Norse.

Two of my oldest larch, from about 2008 planting, so pretty big trees now, cracked off in the wind and are hung up in other trees.  Might be my first use-try getting that stuff down without having to saw under big stems under tension.  Many uses.

Haven't seen much here about KRPAN winches, stoutly made in the European Union (Slovenia which is a major worldwide manufacturer of highly regarded skidding winches) with key parts from Japan, Austria and Germany. Very similar to Tajfun winches. I bought a 3.5E about three years ago and it has been great. It is best for tractors of 25-45 hp and pulls 7,700 lbs.  I am getting a larger tractor and a larger KRPAN winch so no longer need this one. I am in northern New Mexico. Yes, we have trees here at 8,000 ft - mostly Ponderosa pine and fir. Use  the winch for firewood and for thinning to help against forest fires. A large one right now near me but prevailing wind moves it away. But next time??

Noticed that too.  Looks a nice unit, a little big for my tractor maybe.

In any case, I've got a Norse ordered that is supposed to float up on these shores sometime this month.  Woohoo..

On the advice of a fellow ff member, I also bought the Krpan 3.5 this winter. So far I must say it has worked out quite well. Compared to my previous hydraulic winch set up, it is miles better but dang does it winch in quickly, even at idle. I have a 45hp tractor which is at the top end of the Krpan model I got. It will easily pull the tractor backwards if I don't release the pull cord fast enough.

Yo Norse 250 winch is at dealer awaiting my pickup!  

A month later than expected-no big deal.  I only need it starting this winter.

Alright, think I've got my shotgun rider for tmrw.  Go git it!

Unit is at dealer between Wausau, WI and Merrill, WI.  I live in Appleton, and unit will be taken to and reside near Suring, lol.

Zig zag wanderer!
