    Re: Name of hydraulic fitting

    Thank leonz,
    I will call flail master. I have a wet grinder, but trust me these mangled pieces of metal formerly known as hammers are not able to be sharpened.

    Re: pulley problems

    TR,

    I think those pulleys would be fine. Woodmizer uses similar ones on my lt15 and they use a loose belt system, a B57 belt.

  11. Re: PTO shear bolt: tractor end or implement end?

    Tiller Re: Convert rotary tiller to bush hog

    Re: Wood chipper vs pine needles

    Make sure the rpm is up where it's supposed to be. Some people like to run them at less than full rpms and the blower doesn't have enough air velocity which tends to clog the chute.
