    Tires Re: Will NH 1620 turf tires fit on TC25D?

    Just to clarify; RickB is a NH tech. I'd follow his advice.

    Re: Slow loader on NEW tractor

    If you are running at higher rpms (1500+):

    Check your quick-disconnects.
    Visually inspect all plumbing for bend, kinks, or crimps.
    Check your joystick linkage for restricted travel.

    After...

    I am almost totally satisfied with mine. I considered my purchase very carefully, especially following the thread entitled "Chinese Chipper Review." Also, DIYGuy's articles in the CTOA forum helped...

    Chipper Re: PTO Wood Chipper

    I checked on EBay and here is a link to an "ended" auction. This guy claims to sell them and stock parts, so he might be a source too.

    Chipper Re: PTO Wood Chipper

    I paid $1400 for mine in a crate (neither assembled nor setup) from stock. If I had wanted to wait, I could have paid $1200 and ordered one. I got it at www.emerybuilt.com . I have seen them sold...

    Chipper Re: PTO Wood Chipper

    The throat is 6". I have had it slow down with 4" seasoned oak, but not miss a beat with 6" Virginia pine. I stop the feed with the disengage lever and let it get up to speed if it seems too much...

    Re: ROPS

    Chipper Re: PTO Wood Chipper

    Brush does great. Dry leaves, I find, don't get chopped up as much and they block the feed chute and I have to feed a branch through to clear it. I haven't yet tried leaf mold. Since it is more...

    Re: 300 Hour Service

    I had the same issue on my TC40D. It overfilled by the equivalent of the "hashmark" area of the dipstick. I left it in. It kind of "cured" itself 50 hours later when I added a hydraulic top link. ...

    Re: How big of a plow...

    I use a 2-bottom on mine and pulls fine - unless I hit a stump or big tree root. Then it stops and spins (not surprisingly). I would think a 3-bottom would be fine on a TC45. I have my tires...
