Landpride and Woods are about twice this price, The Howse looks a little whimpy as compared to the the other two. One of the rakes in the yard had a bent side link, I think this was a result of reverse backing...

    I just ran out of my life time supply of wood glue. I went to the hardware store and could not find the same stuff. I have been using a tan powder that mixes with water. It machines well, won't gumm up blades, takes stain and is quite water resistant. Very strong and cleans up with water. Has...

    Hydraulic Oil Temp.

    For no good reason other than I wanted too. I added a temperature indicator to the Hydraulic reservoir. I figured if I knew what normal was I might be able to figure out when things weren't normal. I used a digital probe that fits quite nicely in the hole for the dip stick. The probe comes with...

    Three Point fatique

    My dealer sent a mechanic out last night to give my B21 a once over before the warranty expires next month. While he was here, I asked what kind of problems he has to deal with from abuse and misuse of tractors. The one that he mentioned, which I thought was most interesting, was three point...

I found a Lavender distiller on the web that costs as much as a good three point attachment but not much else.

    Backhoe Skidding with a Backhoe

    I have some logs I need to skid out of the woods. I was thinking about using the hoe to reach around and grab em and then skid em out. Is this a bad idea? Am I going to pop seals or whatever by dragging logs with the hoe? Tractor is a B21. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Al
