    Trespasser.....what would you do?

    The thing is, in TN many people live far from those state and national forests but still have a decent amount of property. Unless you live near one of those, it is actually very unreasonable to assume any tract of land is anything but private property. If you border one of those forests then...

    Trespasser.....what would you do?

    From another Tennessean - You don't technically have to have the land posted for them to have been trespassing. Signs negate the defenses outlined in the trespassing law. They would have also been hunting without permission (doesn't take signs to be a violation either).

    Chain Harrow???

    I think around here, everyone would call that a spike harrow.

    COVID19 bull

    Our hospital released those numbers at one time and it was a very small number. I think the numbers of admitted patients were something like 85% unvaccinated, 5% partially vaccinated, and 10% vaccinated

    Guys like this are what gives diesel a bad name

    I am not saying that the bikers in the story or the ones you encounter count, but there is an exception you should be aware of called "taking the lane" which is legal everywhere I know of. https://codes.findlaw.com/tx/transportation-code/transp-sect-551-103.html One of the allowances for...

    Stuck PTO shaft on Finishing Mower

    So I am trying to get a Farm King y750r finishing mower working again. My current problem is that the PTO shaft is kinda stuck. The release on either end seems to be stuck and the two halves of the PTO shaft are stuck together. Does anyone have any advice on freeing everything up and...

    Belly mower does a ragged job - why?

    Two things come to mind that have affected other mowers that I have used. I would check the blades. They might not be dull, but it doesn't take a lot of damage to make them leave a less than ideal cut. It's also possible that if you have ever cut even slightly damp grass that you might have...

    Ford 1700 Starting issues

    Just wanted to update in case anyone else reads this. The fix was a lot simpler than I thought it was going to be. Basically, I just disconnected all the wires attached a the starter motor (after disconnecting the battery of course), cleaned everything with electrical contact cleaner, and put...

    Ford 1700 Starting issues

    So it’s clear the safety switch has been bypassed to me. I plan on fiddling with it on Monday. If anyone has got advice on running through the ignition system to try to isolate the problem, I would appreciate it.

    Ford 1700 Starting issues

    Yeah, that is definitely not there. In fact, I think the bracket that the safety switch is attached to is also missing. I may remember that there were wires hanging down there, so I am going to assume a previous owner bypassed it. Assuming the bypass is intact, any ideas on other things...

    Ford 1700 Starting issues

    @JC-jetro Am I right in thinking that this is on the outside of the tractor just in front of the clutch pedal? IE: I should be able to see this without taking anything else off? If so, it is definitely not there on my tractor.

    Ford 1700 Starting issues

    So this happened out in the field the other day after I turned the tractor off to brush of the radiator. When I went to get back on, the tractor wouldn't start. Didn't even try to crank, but lights came on. Had the tractor in neutral, clutch depressed as far as it would go. After doing some...

    Ford 1700 3 point issues - Hydraulic fluid question

    I might have mis-explained my next problem. The tractor doesn't stall (turn off when I don't want it to). Its that it doesn't turn off when it should. Pushing the throttle all the way forward puts in it idle, but does not shut off the engine. The only I have to turn the tractor off at the...

    Ford 1700 3 point issues - Hydraulic fluid question

    Just wanted to say thanks. I was able to get it apart, the seal replaced, and get it all back together. Your pictures along with some Youtube videos I found really helped a lot. I can't believe it ever worked at all with the goo that the old seal had turned into. Works great now, and...

    Ford 1700 3 point issues - Hydraulic fluid question

    Thanks JC! I have been reading some of the older things on here. Your pictures really helped. I found the seal online, and it looks like something I can handle. This is going to be my first attempt at fixing something like this myself, so I am a bit nervous. Found a video of someone doing it...
