    Re: X 739 opinions

    My tires don't hit, but they sure are close. I'd certainly fix it somehow before damaging a tire.

    Re: Box blade and hydraulic top link on X739?

    Nicely done. Glad to see all went well. I really like the little 3pt hitch and the small implements on these GTs for yard work. Easy to attach and operate in tight spaces.

    Great photos. I think you will find it is all you need for dethatching.

    Re: STORING ATTACHMENTS

    A couple of photos. The carport the cheapest "building" solution I could come up with. It was $2500. Works good for attachments. 389064389065

    Re: STORING ATTACHMENTS

    I use a pallet rack concreted in the ground inside a closed-sides carport. I can get 3 implements on one space: 1 under rack, and 2 on shelves. Pull them down with my loader when needed. I have a...

    Re: Box blade and hydraulic top link on X739?

    Yeah I've seen that kit before. It is convenient. And might be your best avenue. I couldn't use it because I wanted to use 1/2" couplers on my dump trailer so that I can use the trailer with...

    Re: Box blade and hydraulic top link on X739?

    I put a set of rear remotes on my x739 with manual plumbing at the patch panel. I use them for a dump trailer. I guess they could be used for hydraulic toplink. Haven't thought about how these...

  98. Re: TURF DETHATCHING IMPLEMENTS; Three Point Hitch Mounted

    I like those really long tines. One problem I have is that the JD hitch on my x739 doesn't really go all the way to the ground. This limits tine penetration on the CMP because my ground is quite...
  99. Re: TURF DETHATCHING IMPLEMENTS; Three Point Hitch Mounted

    I have no experience with the pine straw rake. They sure look like a nice implement. I would say the only thing I don't like about the CMP is I wish it had a 3rd row of tines :). With any 3pt...
  100. Re: TURF DETHATCHING IMPLEMENTS; Three Point Hitch Mounted

    I'm pleased with the CMP. The corecaster is pricey (price posted on their site), but the 48" 3pt hitch version isn't. It's about $600. I use 5 40-lb JD weights on it. Cuts about a 3" plug in...
