    What is it compatible with?

    Both are open.......so that is something to think about. May be that using it in the drip torches when we burn would be a safer use of it.

    What is it compatible with?

    My initial idea was that a little here and a little there would have zero negative effects. But.....as I am old......and have screwed all manner of apparently simple things up over time, and continue to do so.....I figured I'd at least ask whether someone had a definitive answer.

    Compatible with any of these?

    Friend left me a couple of almost full gallon containers of JD HYGUARD fluid. One is TY6354 The other is TY22000.......listed as low viscosity. I've got a Kubota M8540 A CAT D5G A Challenger MT 525, with Diamond mower What will the JD be compatible with such that I can use it to top off any...

    Aftermarket available?

    That is a idea I had not considered. And as one of the guys who hunts on our property is a first rate welder it's a idea that will get tried! Thank you!

    Aftermarket available?

    I should have posted the picture of where it broke.......at the ball and socket......not really sure how that can be fixed as that was my first thought.

    Aftermarket available?

    Kubota M8540.........telescoping stabilizer bar for the 3-point. It's part #40 in the diagram. Getting actual part number was not something I could find. Any idea if aftermarket or used is available? New is $124....... I've gone old school with a section of 1/2 inch chain in there now. But...

    JD Hy-Guard compatibility....??

    Friend gave me about a gallon each of John Deere Hy-Guard hydraulic fluid......low viscosity and regular....... Not wanting to waste it I'm wondering whether I am safe using it in my Cat D5G for the hydraulic system......or in my M8540 Kubota's hydraulic system? What is it compatible with?

    Cross Reference not as simple to find............

    ...........at least not one I actually understand. So I'm going to ask what must be a recurring question. Have a Challenger MT525 which has specifications for hydraulic oil of Permatran III CMS M1145.......where is a cross reference chart to find similar as I do not see it for sale around here?

    Update......Diamond Mower.............

    Called them and even though I am the second owner Diamond Mowers service folks took time to explain a few things and then sent the operating and the parts manuals via PDF for no charge. Thought it proper to give a company that went above and beyond credit for it. So often we ( I'm guilty of...

    Diamond Boom Mower On Challenger.........

    Got a older one that we just got a couple of welds fixed on so that it's now ready to use but, as it's old ( 10 years ) and as there is no manual I was wondering whether someone here had a link to one. Diamond does not have one at their site that I can find.

    9000 hours on Challenger MT525..............

    So.......9000 hours on Challenger MT525.....if oil test and compression check out is that a disaster waiting to happen or okay? It'll take me 4-5 years to put another 1000 on it. Back when we ran shrimp boats 10000 hours on a Cat or Detroit was not that big a...

    Cracked magnets on hydraulic filters......??

    Bought 2 Kubota Brand filters about a month ago from a reputable dealer and when they got here I simply checked the part number and opened the tops of the boxes to be sure they looked new. They were new.......and the boxes looked new. So today I finally get around to working on the tractor and...

    Hydraulic fluid...hours of operation....???

    Fluid and filters were changed at a little over 600 hours per the manual......by the dealer. Tractor is now at 1100 hours. Changing it is a pain as we use the tractor in the woods and skid plate that's a bear to remove and replace. I've got to change the oil soon but would like to wait on the...

    NAPA Fuel filter to replace Kubota......???

    Is there any reason to spend extra on a Kubota Fuel filter when NAPA has a cross referenced part number for a NAPA filter that is less expensive? It's only about $10 difference but if the performance is the same........??
