  1. Re: Got Feedback on Caravaggi Stump Grinder on 2 Wheel Tracto?

    I've got the Caravaggi Stump Grinder for my G110 Diesel and really like it for bigger stumps (~6"+). The biggest drawback is actually the tractor itself, since you must move the entire machine to...

    Re: 2 wheel tractor options ?

    I can only speak to the G110 from experience, but here's how it works. You have a single engagement lever to control the clutch, operated by the left hand. This engages both the transmission and...
  4. Re: Clearing brush in orchards-- berta flail or brush mower?

    I'm a fan of the flail mower, though I haven't used a proper brush mower to compare. I think what the flail gives up in terms of "maximum knockdown capability" is more than made up for in...
  5. Re: Lawn mower for Grillo G110 and other mower/rotary plow questions

    I have only used the stock Y-shaped flails thus far. I don't think my lawn is nice enough that I would see any improvement from an L-shaped flail (I'm assuming they produce a neater cut); the...
  6. Re: Lawn mower for Grillo G110 and other mower/rotary plow questions

    Hi Seb, I have a diesel G110 and at my peak mow about 6 acres with it. I have both the 71" dual action cutter bar and the Berta 34" flail mower.

    If I could only have one implement, it would be...
  7. Re: Haying on a 30* slope: Can a Grillo 110 cut it?

    I have the G110 with the 11 HP diesel, and I also happen to have the big 71" double action cutter bar. (I also have the biggest flail mower and the stump grinder as well). While I'll leave the hay...

    Hi all, been doing my homework and am liking what I see in the Mahindra lineup. I am a bit confused about some of their series nomenclature, and the pros and cons of each. Of the following models,...

    Tractor Sizing Re: Utility Tractor for 21 acres

    How hard is it to add HP to a tractor? Say for example, you are very satisfied with a tractor's performance and capabilities, but would just like a little more power driving the PTO for mowing or...

    Tractor Sizing Re: Utility Tractor for 21 acres

    Been doing some reading, looks like the Mahindra units are pretty beefy for the price. Not too many reviews though. For a small compact, the Max 28 seems pretty powerful and capable, and both the...

    Re: New to JD with an LX178

    In case anyone reads this in the future, I eventually figured out my real problem was a stuck choke! It had gotten gummed up enough that by moving the throttle from the "start w/choke" position down...

    Re: LX178 no spark

    Turns out I'm just plain ignorant about how this thing is supposed to run, mixed with some dumb luck. It's been running on one cylinder the entire time I've had it!

    After running beautifully all summer (after replacing the stock mechanical fuel pump with an electric), my LX178 (with engine Kawasaki FD440V) one day simply refused to start. The engine cranks and...

    Does anyone know if there's a way to figure out if a snow thrower will attach to my LX178, without actually physically trying it? It's been hard finding solid information, but as near as I can tell...

    Old thread, but I'm also wondering about changing the fluid in my LX178. Is it really that bad to change the oil in these things? I can see them not wanting people to open the system for routine...
