    Re: Ford aluminum truck beds are strong how?

    Yep, and it's been that way for a long time. That is often overlooked, but I think it's the reason GM is not in any panic over truck sales. I don't think they ever have been. The only time there...

    Grading Re: How does my three point float work GC1705?

    Yes, correct not standard double acting in the sense that it doesn't pressurize in both directions. It's really a double "throw" valve that pressurizes the piston for up and "bleeds to tank" for...

    Grading Re: How does my three point float work GC1705?

    The simplest way I can describe it is to think of a standard double-acting, spring-return-to-center hydraulic valve hooked up to a hydraulic cylinder. Hold the valve one way and the cylinder...

    Tractor Sizing Re: Pre-Purchase homework - L3301DT Package

    Low and 4WD. When pulling a box and it fills up with heavy clay soil, it's a significant load. Now, I am sure I could have pushed the tractor further, but it clearly was working hard and running...

    Re: Ford aluminum truck beds are strong how?

    I'm surprised they made that part out of aluminum. It's pretty much the most vulnerable part of a truck.

    Re: Max 28 starts but won't stay running

    There has been an issue with these machines, and I seem to remember it might be a solenoid, but I don't remember for what or where. I bet someone else will know. Same problem affected my neighbor's...

    Tractor Sizing Re: Pre-Purchase homework - L3301DT Package

    My previous tractor, a B2920 with 29HP and weighing 1500#, would run out of traction before power. But my L3200 (32HP/2600#) starts to bog down and struggle long before it give up traction. I guess...

    Re: Looking for a string trimmer. Any opinions?

    The only thing I know about the Chinese Tanakas/Hitachis, which I learned from the chainsaws, is that they are nothing special like the older Japanese units were. In other words, probably no...

    Tractor Sizing Re: Pre-Purchase homework - L3301DT Package

    If he's getting R4 tires, the 60" box will be fine and will cover the tire tracks. I have a 60" box on my L3200, and it's pretty good most of the time, but the tractor could use more guts when the...

    Re: Looking for a string trimmer. Any opinions?

    Beware, Tanaka and Hitachi merged. The older Japanese-made Tanaka stuff was excellent. Post-merger, more and more of their products are Chinese made and not the same design/quality. I believe the...
