    Re: My First Tractor will be a Ventrac 4500Y.

    John, you can probably get by with just a set on the rears but I would not go with v-bars though. They will mark up your asphalt and concrete floors. I run a set of 2 link cross chains on the rear of...

    Re: Tiller Recomendations for JD790

    I have a KK 5' tiller for my 790 and as foggy1111 stated and I agree it is the perfect size for it. I have never wished I had gone smaller either. Covers tracks perfectly and the 790 has plenty of...
  3. Re: Best money the wife ever let me spend.......

    Nice looking Steiner linrick1. I 100% agree with you on the front blower verses the rear 3pt. I debated for several years getting one for my 790 but the thought of looking backwards while going up...

    Re: My First Tractor will be a Ventrac 4500Y.

    You are welcome John. I have to admit that choosing oils for all the newer diesel engines has become nothing but confusion for me. I run Amsoil in just about all of my stuff and I do like it....

    Re: Ventrac 4500 vs Steiner 440

    It will cut wet material fine. I do not have wet spots that I mow with mine. I would think the lack of ground clearance can be an issue with them if the areas are fairly mushy or swampy. Don't know...

    Re: Ventrac 4500 vs Steiner 440

    I have the 440 with the deisel. I would say that the power is adequate for it with the 60" finish mower and the Ventrac tough cut mower I use on mine. I also have very hilly terrain. I have the wheel...

    Wvanatti, thanks for the information. Although pretty scarey, since it sounds like you have kept it greased all along and it still went bad at 250 hrs. Makes me feel a little uneasy about my 2025R...

    Re: Steiner 425 Hydraulic issues

    I would start by checking all of the linkage for the forward and reverse lever. Almost sounds like something loose and it is not finding ( or losing ) neutral. My 440 Steiner has a neutral adjustment...
  11. Re: Ventrac Tough Cut Mower front swivel wheels

    My dealer for my Steiner and Steiner attachments is Unkefer in Minerva. My Ventrac deck came through Mast Lepley. Unkefer only deals with Steiner.
  12. Re: Ventrac Tough Cut Mower front swivel wheels

    I just saw it last week on their website. the dealer told me that there was one in the works last year. The older Steiner model I felt would just be to heavy to be using on my hills so I went with...
  13. Re: Ventrac Tough Cut Mower front swivel wheels

    It is bigger than the 430 and older models, which is one of the reasons I bought it. I have the 25h.p. Kubota diesel. Mine is 2 years old, one of the first ones for the new model year and I have had...

    Good to hear, and yes I have priced them. This tractor ownership thing sure gets pricey.

    I kind of do that now on turns in softer areas I slightly lift up the deck. Unfortunately ( or maybe fortunately ) I don not have weight transfer on my Steiner, it is an option I did not get. With...

    The reasons for me are the weight and the JDQA keeps the attachments closer to the pins on the loader reducing the lost lift capacity due to leverage. The SSQA would add about 100# more to the loader...
