    I lost so much money I swore off buying anything forever. But after this thread, I'll be frantically searching for good auctions! Dang!

    I will stick to my formula for tool buying though: Want X...

    Re: Dream Auction

    Wow, that IS great!

    Last couple of auctions I went to (aviation stuff), there was one auctioneer and at least 100 bidders. If the item could be recognized it got bid up to higher than new prices....

    Ouch!

    Sorry that painful lesson happened. I've done that as well, though not so serious. Had those anti-kickback pawls on, piece of wood got stuck, stupidly went to lift the pawl instead of...

    I don't use them on my tractor, but I do use active noise cancelling headsets in my aircraft. Previously Bose, several iterations, now Sennheiser S1 digital. This headset would not be suitable for...
  82. Re: John deere 3520... Loader mounted blade vs rear blower

    Nope, not a factor. Not having any snow yet? That's a factor :c)

    Re: B2650 snow removal options

    Varmint,

    Kubota sells a blower, plow, sweeper and what all for the frame mount QA (as opposed to the SSQA) for the B2650/B3350. While the SSQA has the obvious advantage of being able to lift and...
  84. Re: Hydraulics Newbie - repair or replace cylinders

    Agree.

    Last time I bought a cylinder seal kit it was something like $20 or so.

    Consider that a cylinder has more volume (hydraulic fluid) on the cylinder side of it's piston than on the rod...
  85. Re: Hydraulics Newbie - repair or replace cylinders

    Steve,

    Was the bucket loaded or empty? If it's slowly leaking down with a load I wouldn't worry about it - just put the bucked down when you park if dumping the load is an issue.

    Could be the...

    Re: Kubota B2650 and B3350 info and hints

    With the 3 cylinder mill you have lots of room to do that . . . on the B3350 there's no room to swing it over. Your snorkel also has a longer straight portion going forward, looks like it's a...

    Re: Kubota B2650 and B3350 info and hints

    Sandy,

    I don't see much need for buying a second snorkel to cut off. Why not just remove the snorkel completely while snowblowing?

    The whole idea of moving, removing, or cutting off the snorkel...

    Re: Bucket hooks - Almost ready to weld

    When adding a grapple to an existing bucket, the hooks need to be located so they don't get in the way.

    If you get 5/16" hooks, they'll work on 1/4" and 3/8" chain.

    I have SSQA and forks, but...

    Re: Bucket hooks - Almost ready to weld

    I did *almost* like you, with a 2" receiver hitch in the middle. The receiver will hold a hook:

    Receiver Tow Hook

    or a drop down 2" receiver extension that I made to get a tow ball down lower...

    Backhoe Re: Kubota 4560 backhoe boom will not rise

    What those guys said.

    Also check the joystick control linkages for looseness and wear. Enough wear, or a loose ball end nut, can cause enough slack that the valve spindle does not move enough to...

    Re: Bucket Driveway Edger Attachment

    Ed,

    Agreed. Since it's not necessary to cut all that deep for an edger, it would also be doable to use a old saw blade as the cutter wheel, 7.5 to 12" or so, mounted to the forks, or weld...

    Re: What to clean really gummy chain with?

    Since there's no such thing as a $30 bill in the USA, by it's nature, your reply is frivolous. Now a $50 would not be frivolous - - but would be
    $20 more expensive.

    I think it is preferable to use a normally closed valve if you are installing on a Kubota or other tractor that has an always hot* 12volt aux output at the rear of the tractor. That way the thumb is...
