Drove up to the pole barn to top up before putting away and noticed smoke coming from under hood. Popped the hood open and notice what I thought was hydraulic all spray and realized it was...

    Change in Stihl design?

    It's been a few years since I checked out the new Stihl line. I have 3 Stihl saws... MS170 for limb trimming (hot knife through butter), my old reliable 026 Farm Boss (2002) with 20 inch blade (rebuilt it a couple years ago due to CONSTANT use) and newer 261 Pro. All have been exceptionally...

    Safety Article for New Tractor Owners

    Just met another fellow with a "near miss" with the pearly gates. Here's the article that should be included in every new tractor owners operating manual published by Penn State in 1991 by Dennis J. Murphy. The diagram on page 3 spells out the idiocy of those that "think" that they are...

    L5740 Autothrottle

    The autothrottle cable was adjusted from the factory at a pretty high rpm and after adjusting it all the way down the rpm still wants to go all the way to 1900 when the hst pedal is pushed all the way to the floor...which is still kind of high in my book. I was hoping to keep the rpm range...

    L5740 works in the snow

    Kubota Auto throttle

    Anyone know how to adjust the autothrottle on the L5740? I haven't used it much while breaking in the engine...it seemed like it was giving me way too much power for what I was doing when it was first delivered so I shut it off. I turned it on again today after not using it for about one...
