    Traction Re: PLOWING PASTURE

    It's a 3-point plow, right, not a wheel plow?

    If it's a 3-point 2x14" plow it should be no sweat for a 4000.

    You probably will want your wheel spacing set at 56-60" centers for plowing with...

    CHANGING HYDRAULIC OIL WITH LOADER ON.

    Re: 2 bottom plow setup question for 5065e

    You DO have to set the wheel spacing, at least on the right hand side, close to correct for proper plowing or the front plow will either turn too narrow a strip or more likely a big plop if tractor...

    Before you spend any money, I would try working with the loader off.

    Are you running radials? If not, that could be next along with losing the CaCl.

    It's easy to spend a lot of $$ on a project...

    3-Point Hitch Re: Mower hitting JD 4105 tires in transport

    This is the most likely cause. The rear of the deck should be a few inches higher than the front when lowered to cutting position. Also, only raise as high as necessary for safe transport.

    Re: TD75D COLD WEATHER SHIFTING

    I've decided to change the fluid in the TD75D. Can someone suggest a good way to transfer the new oil from the 5 gallon buckets (almost 3 pails) thru the small ~1/2 inch plug at the rear of the...

    Re: Hauling a backhoe on a dump truck

    I assume these are popular in CA so as not to need a trailer and CDL. Probably lower cost vehicle licensing too.

    It's not always so simple as paying the fees, taking the tests and getting a...

    Re: TD75D COLD WEATHER SHIFTING

    Do you still have the original fluid in it? The Ambra they specify is a multi-weight, I think 10-30, so that should help with the cold weather hydraulic operation. If you have changed it, what did...

    Re: TD75D COLD WEATHER SHIFTING

    Well, the problems were in JAN and FEB 2014, but no freezing weather now in April. But I will try what you said and see if I can crack the drain plug and look for water coming out. I have a feeling...

    TD75D COLD WEATHER SHIFTING

    I have a TD75D that's about 5 years old/450 hours. It has a NH loader on it.

    This past winter I had 2 or 3 occasions when going out to plow snow where I could not shift either the range selector...

    Re: 7.5016 What To Do

    I like that idea, since it will give me radials and a lot more brands and dealers to choose from. Do you think the 235's might rub against each other on the back duals? My rims are 6" wide. I...

    Re: Workmaster 45 review or owners?

    I believe the Kubota L has smaller tires (lower to ground) and less adjustment to the wheel tread (narrower). Don't know if that matters to you or not, but I prefer the 28" wheels on the WM.

    Re: Workmaster 45 review or owners?

    Just curious, what Kubota model will you be comparing to?
    Also, if you are looking at WM45 you should really consider moving up to WM55. Same basic tractor but more hp, much higher 3pt capacity,...
