    Re: 3ph quick hitch rundown (cat 1)

    The REAL secret is to store all of your 3pt implements on moving dollies. You just roll them into place, hook them up, and off you go. Even my 800 pound 6' blower is <3 minutes on or off. No silly...

    Re: Cleaning around your zerks and grease areas?

    I'm thinking it's ripe for an alternative energy source. Spontaneous creation of petroleum products. I simply walk into a room and *poof*, I'm covered with grease that appears to materialize out of...

    Re: Cleaning around your zerks and grease areas?

    I generally wipe those areas clean inadvertently - seems I can't even walk past my barn without getting a glop of grease on my clothes. I hate that. Actually, I do often scrape out the packed in...

    Re: Kubota L4400 PTP Slipping

    There is a hydraulic PTO clutch that gives a smooth engagement when you throw the PTO lever. It could have a broken spring, linkage, or something - the clutch is fairly rugged normally - I wouldn't...

    BX Steering 'clunk/thud'

    I have a BX2200 - I've noticed a clunk/thud when turning the steering wheel. It's not actually a sound, but I feel a thud coming through the floorboards - almost feels like what you'd expect running...

    Buying Advice Re: Better Tractor vs Better System

    BX25 is the equivalent of a KLR110.

    I say get a CRF250 and call it a day - everything available, factory and aftermarket, and is actually capable. That would be a Kubota B26. If you don't need...

    Re: What can I do with A 24HP tractor ?

    24 HP is plenty. The benefit of higher HP shows up when running ground engaging powered implements. Dragging around a blade or running a backhoe doesn't require much in the way of HP, but does...

    Re: Honda Foreman 450 Plowing Snow

    I love the foot shift - one less thing to break. I did learn the hard way that the auto clutch can come out of adjustment, making the shifting hard. I ended up snapping a linkage piece that...

    Re: Generator wiring diagram

    Yes, the solenoid is good. I actually replaced the entire carb/solenoid assy. because I thought the solenoid was bad (only $20). Then, once it still didn't work, I realized I wasn't getting any...

    Re: Generator wiring diagram

    Did. Diagram is not available for that particular generator. However, ANY diagram for ANY gizmo with a gx engine having e-start and full-cut solenoid will do.

    Re: JD 3010: Oil dripping from everywhere

    Tractors are supposed to do that. Well, mine does anyway...

    I put buckets under it when parked so oil doesn't get on the floor. That's about as far as I'm willing to go.

    Re: Generator wiring diagram

    In-line fuse is good. I have the 12V input to the switch. When the switch is 'on' 12V should go to the fuel-cut solenoid - at least that's what I think is supposed to happen. At 'start', 12V goes...
