    Bought used just over 5 years ago at 591 hours. Now about 925 hours, so about 66 hours / year. Mowing and snow, but some ground clearing also with the rachet rake. Snow and rachet rake work are way...

    Re: amazing what the right tool can do..........

    Flag on the play. Unnecessary bating of the reader. 10 yards and loss of down.

    You can't brag about a machine like that w/o posting a picture of it! Park that bad boy next to a pile you pushed...

    Re: Why are tractors so under-powered?

    The exact same thing is done in computer systems. Having worked at a large blue computer mfg'er for many years, I can tell you that we would have several computer models for sale. The box was the...

    Re: What to do?

    Get a couple dogs (if you don't have them now). Every time they push snow into your yard, leave a few days' dog deposit on their front step.

    Re: Periodic Service: Adjusting the valves

    I asked my service manager about it a year ago and he said he'd never seen one out of spec. He be happy to do it, but didn't think it was a good use of my money.

    Re: Correct tire pressure (newb question)

    Won't they have the pressure range stamped on the sidewall?
  93. Re: Gear or Hydrostatic Transmissions for Compact Utility Tractors?

    Just another angle on how it fits your needs:
    -- Do you want to have to actively do something to make it move?
    example: hold the pedal all day to plow a field?

    Re: Senior Moment

    My friend puts it this way. Your brain is like a stadium. Each cell has a seat. So you want to remember the name of the new neighbor next door or what the wife asked you to get at the grocery...
  96. Re: Gear or Hydrostatic Transmissions for Compact Utility Tractors?

    I guess I can see where that is true. Maybe there is more drift in larger equipment. I don't find a lot in mine. And I have logged a LOT more time on a Case 730 and 930 than anything else and it...
  97. Re: Gear or Hydrostatic Transmissions for Compact Utility Tractors?

    Doesn't glide shift, shuttle shift, power reverser, etc. add the same kind of complexity to a standard transmission?
  98. Re: Gear or Hydrostatic Transmissions for Compact Utility Tractors?

    I'm with James on this one, Richard. My tractor isn't all that big, but when I go down my hill (about 22 degrees) I use 4x4 and stop where I need to just rocking the pedal back. If I forget 4x4, I...
  99. Re: Gear or Hydrostatic Transmissions for Compact Utility Tractors?
