    New (to me) 4100

    Ultimately yes, I do plan to do the back half when things aren’t so busy. Years ago I also did all of this to a 4400 for my parents. It’s plastic was badly oxidized and some of it was broken. I waxed the good panels and replaced the broken ones, looked like a new tractor when it was done. Might...

    Burned Up Trailer Wiring

    On my PJ dump trailer it has fuses on both the positive and negative sides of the charging circuit for the trailer battery. If you have smoke its most definitely a short circuit somewhere, a bad ground prevents flow of electricity so that would be highly unlikely. Id trace out your harness from...

    Most likely it’s a safety switch that is preventing the tractor from starting. Now assuming when you turn the key to the on position you should have power to your gauges, the fuel gauge should read tank level. If that’s the case I typically run through each safety device on the tractor (Neutral...

    Got my hot water pressure washer back from the shop today and couldn’t resist cleaning up the 4100 a bit. Leaning towards waxing the side panels to get rid of the oxidation. [emoji848]

    Made a little more progress today on the 4100. Somehow I ended up with an I match when I picked up the parts I ordered last week. [emoji28] Not knowing what I had/ didn’t have I ordered the loader joystick so I could start figuring out what else was missing. I’m missing a number of small...

    Made more progress on the hood today: The John Deere paint turned out pretty good but I’m debating shooting it with clear coat to give it more shine. Either that or waxing it in a few days. Open to ideas there, leaning more towards clear coat though. Also got a picture of what I’m up...

    Any advice on finding the trim piece for around the headlight switch? This 4100 just had duct tape over the hole that the switch goes in so I ordered a new switch and installed it yesterday but am missing the trim ring that holds it in place to the instrument panel. Upon my searches through...

    Got a little time today to start cleaning up the hood. The white color was actually primer, apparently some of the paint had came off in the past so their fix was shooting the hood with some grey primer to prevent rust. This go around it’ll get sanded, primed, and painted. Although far from...

    Making the tractor useful with a new Fronteir mower [emoji1362] Reversed the rear tires and when right to work cutting brush. Forgot how dusty mowing can be on an open station machine but it was certainly enjoyable nonetheless.

    Anyone have a recommendation for a GPS tracker for their equipment?

    I bought 4 trackers from SVR Tracking a few months ago. These were recommended by a friend who owns a rental yard so I figured it was worth a try. If I remember right each unit was around $180 each up front but that included coverage for 3 or so years and was $40 a year after that timeframe. I...

    TODAYS SEAT TIME

    Unfortunately no progress pictures but I got the Z225 out to cut the grass.

    New (to me) 4100

    Picked up a high hour (5540 hrs) John Deere 4100 today so I can have a mowing tractor again. Surprisingly for the hours it’s mechanically sound, no blow by, smoke, or stuttering in the transmission/hydraulics. I’m not sure what it’s previous life entailed but I think it’ll have an easy...
