    Deere model series

    I'm looking at midrange Deeres. I have read up on the 3050 and it appears to be the perfect tractor, I understand they are super reliable and a good tractor overall. However, it appears that everyone else knows that too as the 3x50s are really quite expensive. And to be honest, i dont really...

    Mowing Mower deck hydraulic motor.

    I'm wondering if anyone would be able/willing to read the specs off the motor on their rotary mower, or finishing mower and post them for me.

    Adjustable pallet forks

    Built some forks a while back to move wood and pallets about. Made them width adjustable so that they will fit different sizes of pallet, and you can slide them in next to each other for using like a boom pole.

    Tow behind batwing mower

    Thought some folk may be interested in the mower I made over about 2 months this summer. Its got Wheelhorse blade mandrels, blades and pulleys. The engine is a Briggs I/C 10HP, its a bit of a monster really, plenty or torque. The rest is home made. It'll cut 30" folded up, and 56" folded down...

    Rotary Cutter Rotary cutter safety devices

    I'm wondering what you guys have with regard to safety devices on your rotary cutters? To stop stuff flying out and such.... I've heard of chains around the blade to stop stuff flying out, was it Henro who put mesh on his ROPS to stop stuff hitting him? What do you have? I've been knocking up...

    PM box too small

    Sorry to nag when you probably have better things to do, but my PM box is bursting at the seams. Is there a chance of bumping up the max from 50 to a couple 100 maybe? I'm just about to go and delete a load, but I doubt I'll get it to 50 Thanks.

    Jinma 204/204s

    I see reference to both these models on the site, they are the most basic, cheapest models. The 204 is basic, with the 204s being the next step up. Seems the differences are limited to an extra cylinder, high lift 3ph, different tyres and a 1" bigger clucth on the 204s. The price is higher, but...

    Musings of the mowing nutter

    Remember the 'Thoughts on a strange idea' post? Well its back, this time with a doner tractor to do it. Ive attached a technical drawing. To the untrained eye it may just look like a load of images put together on paint but to my trained eye it is a detailed plan with inner workings and...

    I think there is something missing in my life. Not a wife, a loader Ive been inspired by pics on the P.F. engineering site and Machine Builders Network to make one. Figure I'll just slap it on the Wheelhorse (poor thing, it will break permanently soon) Now I figure I can make the frame easy...
