    I just happened across the one I bought. It isn't nearly as pretty as yours. But it does have the hydraulic scarifiers, and the darned old thing is as tough as an anvil.

    Steve, if you find an...
  90. Re: Fram filter numbers for kioti tractors, specificaly ch20

    I would never use a Fram filter on anything that I valued or needed. I've heard too many horror stories on Fram filter. Why take a chance just to save a few bucks? You already spent good money for...

    Re: Bush hog maintenance

    Ain't THAT the truth. Oh, and you forgot about the 7 trips to NAPA, TSC and Home Depot to get all the tools, parts, etc. to finish the job.

    Tractor Sizing Re: Tractor pto for 7 foot cutter

    I think the shipping from MI to TX might be more than the cost of the cutter. :)

    Buying Advice Re: jd 5075e or ls p7010c

    Hmmm. The LS weighs at least 1,000 pounds more than the Deere. And it has a cab, rear remotes included in the price, and has a sync shuttle across the full range of gears.

    The Deere, I...

    Tractor Sizing Re: Tractor pto for 7 foot cutter

    My next cutter will be an 8' multi-spindle pull type. I grew up on pull type cutters, and I just like them better.

    They are super easy to hook up. And you set the height you want to cut and...

    Comparison Re: m7060 or 5085e

    If the MX4700 was 4wd, then I'd prefer it. But since it's 2wd, I'd take the 4wd 5085e.

    But remember that you can get anything stuck, including a dozer. You'll have to feel your way around the...
  96. Re: Can't decide Deere 1025r filb or Kubota BX25D

    Roger, I have not seen that video before. That's impressive.

    Now, I'm sure Deere could come up with some advantages vs. the Kubota, but the HP, ground clearance, regenerative hydraulics and metal...

    Comparison Re: m7060 or 5085e

    When I was looking at the NH T4.75, the ones in stock at the dealer had the 12x12 synchro shuttle with no creeper gear. I wanted the 20x20 hydraulic shuttle with creeper. The salesman tried his...

    Re: Thinking of downsizing L3800 to BX2370

    Yep. If a buyer is gonna complain about paint missing from the bottom of the FEL bucket, I wouldn't want to deal with someone like that anyway.

    Last motorcycle I sold, I told the buyer: "Hey, if...

    Re: atlas box blade

    I haven't used one, but I've seen them at my dealers. They appear to be just a typical middle of the road box blade. Probably no better or no worse than any medium light duty box blade such as...
  100. Re: X739 48" Mower deck under side paint quality

    Fluid Film is available at NAPA, but is cheaper through Amazon. It's good stuff. It's my preferred lubricant - a million times better than WD40 (which really isn't a lubricant anyway).
