    Re: New Farmi skidding winch

    Since none of my tractors are nearly as big (or heavy) as the one SR shows, and my trees are not conveniently located relative to my few trails, I use a snatch block for a lot of drawbar pulling and...

    Re: box blade advice

    Some people use track width to mean the distance between wheel centers.

  86. Re: IF You are a Tractor Operator in your ROOKIE Season.

    Good point and one that I've had to learn the hard way.

    Along the same lines: focus on the job and control who has access to the job site.
    Nothing worse that being distracted by someone who just...

  88. Re: IF You are a Tractor Operator in your ROOKIE Season.

    Ouch! That looks ... gnarly.

    I am not a rookie, but I try to remind myself that I am not a "black belt", either.
    With regards to always wearing the seat belt:

    Oil & Fuel Re: Kubota B21 Foaming Transmission Fluid.

    Any chance you could do a vacuum check on your hydraulic circuit to see if it's drawing in air on the suction side?
    It's an older machine, so maybe a loose clamp, pin hole in a tube or worn seal...

    Box Scraper Re: Box Blade and Grader Blade

    I have both. Got the rear blade, first, for snow removal. Also used it to create a drainage swale. It's only 340 lbs, so it doesn't cut-in very aggressively, but it moves loose soil around just...

    Re: Kubota M6 axle in the oil pan

    My L3240 has a wrapped or "bifurcated" oil pan, and I suspect your L5740 has one, too.
    The oil pan looks like a pair of saddlebags that are joined, at the top.
    If you get under your tractor and...

    Re: BX25D--finally pulled the trigger

    Oh, it makes a ton (143 stone?) of sense to me.
    Just reading "drop it on your toes" gave me an immediate emotional response.
    Very similar to the reaction I've had when getting an unexpected price...

    Re: Neighbors and favors.

    I think sixdogs has expressed how I handle this. It's natural for people of good conscience to want to pay you to do something that they want done, but can't or don't know how to do themselves. ...
