    Re: X700 series hydraulics.

    I am on a new property that needs a LOT of work. The previous tenants simply dumped all of there yard waste everywhere. Half of the 8 acre parcel we are on is not used. We have absolutely no use for...

    Re: X739 reverse button

    "Overly safety conscious" does not exist in the court of law.

    I keep trying to tell people, and no one listens. This is 2013. Not only do people sue for everything and anything, but documented...

    Re: X700 series hydraulics.

    I never intended to try and fill it right to the top, but I just wanted to be sure it could take SOME abuse. I should have phrased it better in the beginning.

    I figure, if I have heavy material...

    Cub Cadet Dump Trailer - YouTube

    Here is a video of an old cub machine doing a run up and down of the trailer. I would think my X740 has a quite a bit more hydraulic power than that old cub...

    Re: X700 series hydraulics.

    Do you think 1/4'' line from my front hydraulic couplers to the rear of my tractor is sufficient for this setup?

    Re: X700 series hydraulics.

    Do you think gaining volume in the cylinder will help compensate for the lower pressure of the hydraulic system?
  87. Re: yanmar diesel life expectancy? how many hrs u have?

    I can think of quite a few reasons as to why this place isn't good.

    1. Cost of living. BC gets its gasoline from Alberta oil. So does Washington. Washington sells the same gas we sell, for about...

    Re: X700 series hydraulics.

    To be honest I am a little frustrated. I wish I had stronger hydraulics, but I guess I should be thankful I have any!

    I was thinking about asking the builder to build me a slightly smaller...

    X700 series hydraulics.

    I have a 2012 X740. My hydraulic system is 924 PSI at 4.5 GPM. Does my tractor have enough hydraulic power to use this hydraulic cart?

    I am concerned that if I splurge and buy...
  90. Re: JD pricing of options on 4520 -- are they crazy?

    My local dealerships charges one flat rate setup fee of $200.

    It doesn't matter if you order 25 options with 10 implements, or just 1 option, the setup fee is one flat rate here.

    Just my...

    Re: 755 Yanmar Engine Vibration

    The purpose of the Harmonic balancer is, like it sounds, to compensate for the pistons chugging up and down at different times.

    Harmonic balancers are filled with a silicone like material, almost...

    Yep, in BC. I am in the Lower Mainland, Pitt Meadows to be exact. I am a Prairie boy, dragged out here by love to start a life with my now fiance. Truthfully speaking, I do not like it here that...
  93. Re: yanmar diesel life expectancy? how many hrs u have?

    Only the X700 series machines get 4 years warranty as far as lawn and garden tractors go. It is included in the price of the machine.

    Yes the X740 is a diesel, 2WD. I opted for the 2 wheel drive...

    Re: 54" extra edge mower deck

    Check your tire pressures. Even a few pounds off can lower one side.

    If you have checked everything, one of your lift arms could be lower than the other.
  95. Re: yanmar diesel life expectancy? how many hrs u have?

    1 year warranty? Try 4 years on my X740. It is also financed over 4 years. For every single month I make payments, it is covered under warranty. All I need to worry about is oil changes and filters,...
  96. Re: yanmar diesel life expectancy? how many hrs u have?

    The problem is, even at 25% of new, it isn't a deal. I do not mean to insult you, but you cannot think of the purchase price as being a deal.

    Example. If I was a buyer, and you were trying to sell...

    Re: 54" extra edge mower deck

    Don't be fooled by thinking "a blade is a blade"

    Blades have a HUGE affect on how the air flows underneath your deck. Changing the way the air moves can drastically reduce the amount of grass...
  98. Re: yanmar diesel life expectancy? how many hrs u have?

    That itself will be the hardest part I think.

    You just have to remember that when they hear 3,000 hours, it doesn't just mean on the engine. They know the entire machine has 3,000 hours on it....

    Re: 54" extra edge mower deck

    I recently purchased a 2012 X740 with the 54 inch deck, and I can tell you, the factory blades do not help.

    I had a very large amount of build-up, every time I mowed. It didn't matter if it was...
  100. Re: yanmar diesel life expectancy? how many hrs u have?

    Honestly, I feel any tractor will fall apart around the engine, long before you will need to think about rebuilding it.

    Quite frankly, in a garden tractor, you will never reach a point where you...
