If you can condition, roll and wrap you can shorten the time.
If you square just wait or grow a different hay

Pull the injectors and put them on the lines and spin at full throttle see what comes out. Otherwise water can get into the sump by the o rings at bottom of cylinder sleve.
Zetor injection pumps...
I always like Gehl. I have had several Gehl balers. Like the other post said dry hay but not too dry, closed throat with a big belt on the bottom. Once the hay enters baler it passes between a...
Does the grey smoke go away or stay after warmup? There is an o ring at the bottom of the cylinder that is usually the problem when water goes in oil. I would look for a leak first then check the...
The gp250 is super fast and uses a different twine wrap mechanism. Size typically if you have the power you can stuff a lot in a roll. The gp250 has a locking door so drive until your tractor begs....
I have a GP 250 and I have seen a few others around.
Shaking is about rotation or lack of. Check to see if the blades on that side rotate freely.
first before you spend any money. Remove injectors and reconnect to line outside tractor, open the throttle and spin it over see what comes out.
Look for buildup on the tips, if the tips are...
I just bought a 3 IH bottom semi mount and for the same reasons. The smaller old style plows wont track correctly. I haven't used it yet.
The key is works when I want it to.
Just buy new,
EVERYTHING used may need some work.
New balers are good for 10000 or more rolls,
It runs on the low pressure pump same as pto clutch. Get the hydraulics hot and see what it does.
Ive never seen a rusted stuck clutch on a zetor. Im not saying it cant or wont. Mine is almost always stored inside. I would suspect the master and slave or a leak.
Check on alo quicke
a lot of loader and very good mounting brackets from the factory
Do this first.
Pull the injectors and reconnect to the lines outside tractor and spin the engine.
What do you get from the injectors?
Don't spend a dime until you do this.
Its probably a Jinma or foton.
My guess is a Chinese loader and backhoe.
Its probably worth 2 to 5 K
But only if you have mechanical ability or free repair help.
Drips from the injector line are not enough.
Charge the battery and spin the tractor use ether to make it turn.
If all else fails pull the injectors and reconnect to lines and see what come out...
Probably a star or rotary rake so you can use it as a tedder or rake, I think Kuhn or krone
I would go 100HP if possible. Both for power and weight.
Deutz, same, fiat, or fendt might be a better choice
Charge the battery
Remove the injectors from the engine and reconnect them to the fuel lines then spin the tractor over to see what fuel delivery you have. The injectors need to point away from the...
You should be able to get the seals replaced or the rams fixed with out having a brand.
Take it to a good hydraulic shop.
I generally go with get a new valve set or joystick.
If you have brush say 2 to10 years growth then a mowing tractor and something like a brown tree cutter might be best. If you could bend it up or do any damage then get something used.
its an old reese
I kept a D310 G for several years. The track tension will never hold on slopes and if you drive over logs or sticks so always look before you drive on a side slope. 1st gear does all the work for...
Its simple and straight forward. Put it on and bleed it out a bit.
Between 10 and 20 depending.
I would never go HST for heavy work.
That not a bad price.
I paid $71 per acre for delivered spread 60 40 40.
Some of the older models used a signal lever that would raise up from the chamber when the roll was full. Otherwise you would feel the strain on the tractor. On a soft core baler the last or outer...
I would hire or rent to get it done,
You need remotes to run a picker and at least 12000# of tractor.
Deer has some financing and incentives on the new stuff.
I couldn't and would not but it is a good deal.
I like 5 by4 but I don't like the super tight rolls,
Ive never sold hay but have no issues with well made soft core rolls. I have an old Vermeer that works well and the 6 by 5 size is cheap to buy. My 5 by4 cost about 20 each cash expenses when they...
soft is OK it depends on the baler and how well you wrap them I hav e seen a lot of old chain baler that were looser and softer than a modern soft core. for 70 to 80 of well fertilized maintained...
I have a couple older zetors. I have looked at the majors they are OK but I would go to a Proxima they are not much more money but overall the design is better
I have bought 3 tractors and other stuff from far away. Two were good and matched descriptions, one was from a liar. Seller rateings like ebay are best. Proxybid has a lot of stuff but no quality...
good pattern 20 to 40 ft unloades 6 ton or so in a couple minutes.
load it up run 6 of 8 gears at 75% throttle
I have a Gehl 315. I pull it with a old bigger Zetor.
It works well for both. it is a bit heavy about 5000# unloaded.
Im not sure how heavy a 5100 M is. But you need about 12,000# at least and...
I would find the originals try a junk yard.
Pickup tires wont do much with weight or traction.
My experience is that some parts are just not available.
Try to find say 1 st gear.
I had some similiar experience but didnt work out.
If it is 4 wd check to make sure the tire dimensions are the same.
I would like to have it how much?
sounds like a good deal I would go 4 it
Parts are not an issue provided you can use the phone or internet. I have a active dealer 130 miles away so if I need something its here in 2 to 3 days. I have bought on ebay also.
It has a...
It looks useable. If I needed it I would offer 1000 and prepare to take it home.
theres a lot of those with bad bottoms around best i remember its about 200 per ft to buy a new bottom plus the work
The zetors sold in the 90s had nice big cabs that would accomodate you. I have an older model and can stuff my associates behind me so they can bark at cows.
I have seen some gear drive aftermarket staters on ebay for about 200 which for me has been a good deal.
How long have you had the tractor and is this the first occurance?
It has a clutch pack like an automatic tranmission.It runs on a low pressure oil supply.
Brackets are all tractor specifc. Mine is front to rear axle
The 970 will be full length subframe. probably a 3 ton lift capacity.
find one on a tractor or order one from a dealer.
10,000 is not...
I am with you on that it is a consuming job to track down whats happening. i have 3 tractors and try to keep one ready all the time. I think last year I had time and attention consuming minor...
thanks for the extra info.
how many hours are on it?
have you checked the valve clearances or injectors?
Additionally check the turbo.
none of the stuff I mentioned should be dismissed even if...
Depending on the actual manufacturer I would probably remove the injectors and fill the cylinders with DOT 4 brake fluid acetone and ATF and check and refill daily until the fluid easliy and quickly...
What JD is it?
Many are made by others.
First check the valve clearance. Then pull the injectors and reattach them outside the engine and spin the engine at full throttle. this is not to start...
I have noticed some of the big chain dealers move equipment around andit looks like it sells. its helpful to watch their web sites.
Locally tractors are selling, those buying new are either retires...
I would try Gensco the airplane tire takeoff people they sell tri ribs. I have several and know theyre worth the money.
But that tractor is suited to a heavy loader.
Its the slide that is causing warping.
you must redo the slide to keep it from raising up as it nears the wedge.
The slide and guides probably need to extend at least one foot on either side of the...
Ive wanted a 5400.
It rolls the hay on the ground.
Check to see what new belts with the little hay grabber things on them cost.
Most of the older models any brand are only worth 400 to maby 800 if...
I have a couple old Zetors. I have serious issues with them. They are too heavy too balanced and pull too well. The transmissions are too simple. Seats are worn, paint is faded. hydralics all...
I had one. It all depends on the hours, use, and maintenance. Some had 6 speed transmissions and a handle for the pto clutch. I rolled hay and bushhogged with the 460 I had.
Locally its about a...
I would stay with that. the bucket will hold all you can lift.
I have put 5 loaders on tractors none were made for the size I mounted them on.
Looks good to me.
It can be used on that tractor. It depends on what you expect to load or use it for. I would lower the front subframe mounting points a bit and definitely brace to the rear axle.
The smaller Whites were ISIKI engines. Some of the bigger ones had Cummins engines, otherwise possibly Perkins. All I have seen were good tractors.
I had one 700 is probably good if its in decent shape. I always planted 36 inch rows.
Ive seen em I think its a tonutti ranch rite is one of the names. Its a gear drive. New holland sold some versions of the tonutti a few years ago. I have a tonutto fr 0245 and can get parts...
I would go with 4 by 4 roller and drum mower.
sounds like a deal, But you must learn to self repair.
Its an orpan meaning parts support might be slow to get. Farmtrac is out of business but parts are on the net. If everything works good and looks good then around 5000 would be tops. The seller is...
Depends on it its just a reline and new bearing or if the pressure plate is warped or damaged. I use a shop in Nashville that will put the whole assembly together for you. The lowest Ive seen is...
do you have any history with it? how long have you had it? What work has been done on it?
Any water on the block maby behind the starter. Expect to at least replace the head gasket.
I would run from this machine, unless you get it for near scrap cheap. If the block is cracked they are...
Remove the injectors and fill the cylinders with DOT 4 brake fluid and let it set for a couple weeks or more. then pull it with the injectos out. Pull it and blow all the brake fluid out then...
I had a 3 a 9 and a 12. When the chamber slides and plunger are that worn park it get another newer better baler.
A bottle jack laying on its side wont work much.
Like I said I wore 3 of these out.
Probably extremely worn and stuck rusty. The plunger will stick.
I would upgrade
If it were near me or if I could get it here reasonably I would want want it.
I have a Explorer 70 its a slightly newer model than the agco allis 5670. agco sold several models.
I order soome stuff from the deutz dealers and have nver tried AGCO. It just hasnt needed any...
I use a Walmart 65 battery it has 850 cca.
I would look for a Bush hog 2245 or similiar.
Fords of that time were not common with loaders.
the pump speed lifting spped and front end capacity may not satisfy.
I have seen some with add on...
Its 65 years old.
dont you think it might be tired?
That age typically had no hydraulic lifts or have a air (vacuum) lift.
In short find something else.
Its a fine brand and model but not...
I use a piece of old tin tied under the lift arms and over the bottom drawbar.
Several small companies made those and painted then for the retailer.
Around 90 with about 12,000 # of well balance tractor
Balance the tractor 60 rear 40 front so with any type of disc in most any land you can traction
The older bigger models from the 70s and 80s...
Rubber is for lawns.
I was interested but theyre late in having any and seem to be vague on price. If they wanna sell to farmers then put something on the ground.
I have a 910 w cab. Great old tractor.
I use 15w 40 motor oil.
I use common hydraulic fluid in the transmission and lift which uses oil from the transmission.
DOT 4 in the brakes
I would not take it to a shop unless they have a lot of room for it to set and are patient.
Mosty importantly 1 st gear does all the work forward and reverse. Those were great machines but that...
There are some chinese boxes on burden or shoup and you can get them on for around 200. I put one on a small woods and it want easy.
I would just get another cutter.
I like the new idea but its a soft core baler that needs some power to finish the roll. The rolls are 5 wide and 4 tall its easier to haul a 5 tall and 4 wide roll. 70 or so hp would be ideal in...
Its an International.
I have one just like it. We trim with a baby tractor with it. Guards are unique narrow design.
I will check the model number tomorrow.
Enorossi and farm king
Understand theyre all made the same
The guard bar backbone is a bit weak.
Its the lines and fittings jypically not the pump. It sucks air thru a small hole in the line or loose fitting and then quits. After it sets the fuel pushes the tiny amount of air out and it will...
There was a big dealer in north Georgia thats why theres a few. I have owned a bigger 6 cyl model.
you can still get parts now its SAME DEUTZ FAHR in the USA.
Its probably a workable tractor but...
Call mark harper dba diesel doctor in russelleville, ky. Expert and dealer for zetor
That is an elglish or german row crop tractor made before the modernization, most had headlights on the front. So the transmission is always weak and clumsy. It probably has a row crop rear tire...
check with the neighbors.
The rule is at least as good or better than theirs.
I would go the web sites and build you own and compare the final price built as you want.
Gehl made very good balers and ver equipment in general. they are out of business but not due to the machine quality. I have several gehl machines and had 3 balers in the past.
That baler is...
I would cross out the solenoid with a screwdriver and then if it does not start or spn fast take the starter out and connect battery cable to it? I know others would not but thats me.
I think the new Zetors are electronics free engine controls. So there must be another way apart from computers and modules to control fuel systems and meet emissions.
Look behind the starter for a small hairline crack in the block. you might have the wrong type of block sealer in the coolant.
