And a relatively low rpm diesel engine if you can get one!

Do not forget that diesel fuel will support microbial growth on the meniscus of any water that collects at the bottom of the tank so for long term fuel storage a sump drain, anti-fungal and flow additives if you live in a cold climate are necessary.

I like the tractor idea, I may need to look into that-the power can be shut down for a bit to drag a tree off if required. Probably going to have to work on any tree with the chain saw for a bit before it can be shoved out of the way anyhow...
