    Just a reminder for all tractor users about Partsand supplies sales promotions.

    Greetings Tractor users, I'm sure you all must know this - but it may slip your mind. But many tractor dealers have early spring promotions on parts and supplies for tractors. My dealer does a big 4 or 5 day event in mid March this year - and a couple other dealers around me also have them...

    Quite a Snow Season here in Western Wisconsin - and increasing speed.

    Greetings, Well, winter can be a pleasant part of the seasons in Western Wisconsin - but since January this year - its been a little "over the top" for lack of charm :-) My josh we've had a lot of snow in February and drifting. Just a week ago or so - we got 14 inches of snow fall in our...

    3pt quarter inching for scut units. how do you do it ?

    Greetings, While bigger tractors have position control for their 3pt units, the GC series like most every other SCUT nowadays has quarter inching. The last position control 3pt on a SCUT I'm aware of was the Yanmar cub cadet sc2400 and sc2450. So my question is, how do you use quarter...

    Hill and Sidehill spring mowing warmup.

    Greetings, So in Western Wisconsin, yesterday May 9th was the 1st lawn cutting of the year for me. And every year, the 1st lawn cutting on steep hills and sidehills is a new feeling of pucker tension until you get used to it again. Not only is it sidehill angle, but the lawn has "moved...

    Kubota subcompacts are no longer the obvious king of the subcompact hill.

    From 2006 when I first dreamed of a Kubota or Yanmar Cub Cadet subcompact tractor until early 2015, I always saw a Kubota BX as my most likely 1st tractor. That many years of Minnesota State Fairs to see and compare them. And in late 2014 and early 2015 it was test drives plus seeing the...

    More than 1 Permatran 821 XL choice now ???

    Greetings, A year ago at my dealer's open house I discovered something about the 5 gallon AGCO PermaTran 821 XL Hydro/Transmission fluid that is recommended for many Massey tractors. At the time I posted it right away on TBN because the initial shipment had hit my dealer's location and the...

    Comparing new Massey 1526 to a small Massey 1700

    I agree Rockcrawler. I looked for years at the BX line and the Cub Cadet/Yanmar products and in early 2015 I looked at LS and New Holland and Mahindra and Massey too. For me - it was down to the BX and Massey products, and after test driving I never looked back - as the GC1715 offered a better...

    Comparing new Massey 1526 to a small Massey 1700

    Greetings, At a recent open house - for the 1st time I saw in person the 1526 product that was essentially discontinued in 2014 and then brought back again in late 2015. Now for clarity - I'm not talking about the GC1700s. What I'm wondering is how does the 1526 (smallest of the 1500s)...

    The Changes in the GC1700s in 2018 - steering, seat, couplers - an open house

    Greetings Fellow Massey readers, Later this evening I will be posting some of the pictures I took at my dealer's indoor open house regarding the Massey GC 1700's. Below are some comments: Because I own a GC1715 (2015) - I'm already used to the better seat and seat suspension - that is now...

    Disappointed that my GC 1700 series mmm deck is just paint and nothing else.

    Greetings, Well it's not often that I'm disappointed in something about my GC1715 . . . In fact it's only happened a couple times. But I was cleaning my mmm under-deck and discovered that the underside is just painted and not primered. This is exactly the area that deck rust or get...

    SCUT . . . dump cart & trailer options that don't hurt your wallet.

    Greetings, We like to think of our compact and subcompact tractors as big and mighty tools. But sometimes they are just downright convenient. And whether its in the back woods or field or yard - they benefit from some additional add-ons that help us carry and transport in those areas. There...
