    Re: If L3901 is too small... L4701 or L4060?

    The 4701 is actually quite a value, and it has some pretty good upgrades over the 3301/3901 models beyond just the bigger size and more HP. But yeah, I'd be looking at a Grand L if it's only a teeny...
  87. Re: Want to buy Deere lawn and garden. Something to cut brush?

    They don't really sell small outdoor power equipment like that, in fact most Deere dealers have agreements to sell Stihl and Honda OPE products in their showrooms for that part of the market.

    Re: HST damper issue l3300

    The damper on these HSTs doesn't always have a centering spring built in. On my previous B, the damper and spring were two separate things. All the damper did was resist motion (slow it down) but...
  89. Re: What would happen if Trump repealed Tier 4 emission standards?

    It still gets confusing, because new under 26HP (25.47 to be exact) tractors are also now considered Tier 4 Final, and it should say that on an engine tag. These machines have met the Tier 4 Final...
  90. Re: What to buy? I want a small tractor with a turbo (high altitude use)

    Kubota B3350 is the smallest turbo in their lineup. It's a bit bigger than the 2601 you mentioned, but not too much bigger. Same size as the old B3200.

    I have been using "Ghostery", which has worked well. It will let me fine tune things to allow reasonable ads through.

    Re: 14x20 skid shed build

    Yeah, PT plywood sucks, it really does. Lots of voids too. I once cut up a sheet of PT plywood into gusset plates for some roof trusses on a boat house, and the amount of voids in the plywood...

    You might get more help/feedback if you could post a screenshot of the ad.

    While I'd prefer to support the site through advertising, I had to install an ad blocker some months back, as the site...
  95. Re: What would happen if Trump repealed Tier 4 emission standards?

    To be honest, the only models I have heard of that had widespread hardware/software issues with the DPF was the Kubota B3350 and 1-2 LS models that I can't recall. And a few Mahindra models have...

    Re: HST damper issue l3300

    Could have been ice in the treadle linkage -- in fact that would have been the first thing I looked for, as it's a common problem reported here (affecting many linkages and safety switches on...
  97. Re: What would happen if Trump repealed Tier 4 emission standards?

    I have two problems with discussions like this. First, the tiers were planned and put into effect long before Obama came along -- this stuff started going into effect in the 1990s based on even...

    Re: LED lighting on ROPS

    I think a 15A fuse is too high, plus it won't protect thinner wire that you're likely to be using -- you'd need 14GA wire for 15A fuse to offer protection, and I doubt these lights need 14GA. Make...

    Re: Kinda thought that we were done.

    In all my years down here in VA, I think I can only remember 2-3 times where the driveway was frozen before I cleared snow. We'll get powdery snow sometimes, but I almost always have to deal with...
