You can drag logs with a Ferguson or Ford tractor but you had best chain the tires up . They are too small to pull stumps though .

Congrats on the new tractor.
But, I will chime in on brands in case somebody else reads through this for info: 
I wouldn't wish a Long tractor on my worse enemy! I had a Long 460 DTC that was the worst piece of crap ever to come out of a factory. Bolts kept loosening up on the box on the side that powered the 4WD system. Go to tighten them (3/4" bolts) and they stripped out. Whatever Soviet-era, Romanian steel they used was incredibly soft. Snapped the actual 4WD drive gear inside that box when I was pushing a big boulder. The "final drive" system for the rear wheels will leave you scratching your head. Forget trying to keep a tach cable on it; it'll snap/strip within 2 hours. I could go on and on. Found a sucker down state that absolutely had to have it, so away she went. Bought a LS U5030 and am SO much happier.
