    LS free loader promotion

    "My nearest LS dealer said the same thing about HST. Too many suburbanites with 5 acres or less want HST. He'll order a gear model, but not unless requested." That's true here as well. I'm one of those suburbanites but I always had a gear tractor. When I bought a new one 17 years ago all I...

    LS free loader promotion

    Something to think about. Your area may be different but in my area a tractor without a loader takes much longer to sell. Some people may not need a loader and have specific uses for a non loader tractor but the majority do seem to want one. Two dealers I spoke with years ago would not order a...

    Mcmaster-carr has weldolet fittings. Is this something you could use.

    Insurance is strange!?!

    "It would have been much cheaper to remove the tree before the garage was built." I'm sure it would have been cheaper 30 years ago due to inflation but still would have required a crane. Could not drop the tree in one cut due to neighbors house to the south (less than 90') and my house only 8'...

    Insurance is strange!?!

    I just went through the same thing about 4 months ago. Had a 90' pine that was 3' from the garage for past 30 years. Then we had a bad wind storm with 80-90 MPH winds and the pine was swaying toward the garage just touching it with each gust. Insurance co. told me the same preventative maint...

    Meat Grinder recommendations

    I have the Cabelas commercial grade 1/2HP Grinder. Bought it about 10 years ago for processing deer. It weighs 35lb. and can process 4-6lb per min. It has been flawless for me.

    Towing capacity

    Some things to think about. If your proposed tractor is 3300lb. then add another 1000 for a loader so now 4300lb. Add the minimum trailer weight of 2500lb. and you're up to 6800lb or about maximum for a 7K trailer. Plus any 3pt. attachments and a cab will also add weight so a 7K may not be ideal...

I used to be able to click on TBN from my laptop bookmarks and be logged in automatically but my laptop system has updated recently and now I do have to log in each day. I haven't found out what changed. Apparently when I...

    Need opinions 2016 Chevrolet 2500HD

    I have this same truck. A 2016 CC std bed with 6.0 bought new but with 4WD. Bought it for towing and I'm pleased with the power. About the only thing I don't like is the poor MPG but it is built to tow. I have recently checked and found retail book values between 34-36K but mine has low miles...

    Snow plow set up, which way?

    I have lived in snow country my entire life and plowed snow for the past 50 plus years. Most of those years I only plowed my own driveway with a truck plow. I plowed with a friend who had many contracts as a sub contractor. He always paid me on time per job. I moved and decided to start my own...

    Differential lock was stuck

    I had the same problem on my 2615HST. Where the linkage goes into the trans it was sticking. I guess it had rust buildup due to being left outside in the rain. No way to lube. I used a spray penetrating oil and manually worked the pedal up and down. At first I had to pry the pedal up and step on...
