    Hey Fordians... can anyone identify the year and model?

    It is a Ford 4000 Industrial tractor if the paint scheme is correct. Could also be an 18xx with the xx being dependent on the transmission and PTO. The most common was a 4 speed that would make it an 1841. Ford or a dealer may have installed an optional Sherman combination transmission providing...

    I've encouraged the OP more than once to get his dealer involved just as others have.

    I need front tires for my JD 4430. The size is 11.00-16, my question is, what ply of tire should I purchase if I am using this tractor for field work

    11.00-16's are paired with 20.8-38 rears. The 4430 parts catalog lists 9 or 10 different front tire sizes for 2WD tractors. https://partscatalog.deere.com/jdrc/sidebyside/equipment/83395/referrer/navigation/pgId/267511

    Proper part numbers for a 4-way hydraulic control for Kubota L3430

    Hoses from the couplers to the implement are never included. Some applications use hoses from the valve to the couplers, that's the only time you will get hoses with a tractor remote valve kit. How would anyone know the length of the implement hoses you might need, or what style and size fitting...

    PTO generator at max torque or max HP?

    Frequency and voltage are linear when discussing conventional PTO generators. An inexpensive Kit-O-Watt will verify that. They are a very useful tool. https://www.harborfreight.com/kill-a-watt-electric-monitor-93519.html

    Saving Money as Prices Increase

    For those lacking self discipline. You either have it or or you don't. People were going broke a long time before the first credit card was conceived.

    Where to find hydraulic cylinders for my John Deere 70 loader on my 790.

    A good shop will make new rods if the old ones are too bad to fix.

    PTO generator at max torque or max HP?

    And that at 100% mechanical efficiency which is unattainable. There is always some level of parasitic power loss.

    New L6060, what's wrong with my rear remote?

    It's a safe bet that you do doubt me. It depends entirely on the application. Your response only addresses half of my comment.

    Spreading just a tiny amount of road salt?

    Neither is sodium chloride. The proof is all along northern roadsides.

    Spreading just a tiny amount of road salt?

    Granular fertilizer is pretty much a carrier and a couple salts.

    How do you tell what year your tractor is?

    Any competent New Holland parts counter person can give you the final build date of your tractor if you give them the complete serial number. Yes, you need the serial number to have any chance of getting the correct parts, even filters. When I worked at the dealership I wouldn't look up parts...
