    Rear Dirt Scoop, Like New, 30"

    Many FEL owners feel obligated to criticize the rear scoops as such :) But if it works well for you and you are happy with it, what's a problem? 👍 I have been doing this for many years.

    Happy Easter to everybody! Just to share. Some time ago I've posted a video story about an SMG creation in Lithuania. It was in my language. Since I've made it in English and posted today on YouTube, I thought maybe someone would like to watch it. Here it is: The First Lithuanian SMG Of All...

    My Lumber and Plywood Cart

    I didn’t want to start a new topic to share what I did this year, so I’ll stick here if no one objects. I've started this work in the early spring, when the first pandemic lockdown was announced in the country. I finished it recently, within the second lockdown. When I realized that I could no...

    Grappling fun - A Picture Thread....

    You probably have already posted those pics, because I remember I've seen the spikes welded on the edges of the bucket sides some time ago. Guess they help to take or to keep a log? I think the teeth on a cutting edge are a must for such works like you do. The idea of my grapple will be similar...

    Project collapse

    That's happened not this year, but in 2015. It was lifted off by the wind, rolled over through the road and thrown onto my neighbour's land. This greenhouse was equipped with the 4 anchors made of concrete. They worked well several years, but didn't help this time.

    Need advice on welding machine purchase

    Thank you, Shield Arc, I understand your advise. And indeed I'll take it into account for the future. But please take a look at another picture attached. In fact the bucket edge should be welded from opposite (bottom) side first and, after turning it over, - from another side (inside)...

    Need advice on welding machine purchase

    I'd be very thankful if someone may pass the answers to the questions. Is there a rule of how to make a bucket edge welding correctly? Do the arrows in a pic attached show a correct position of forces to be applied so to have it straight after welding?

    No Fords? Well no Dodges either.

    Just to compare some older technologies from different parts of the World. :) A few soviet dumpers I had been driving in my youth, early 80's. I was working mainly in the gravel-pits with them. MAZ-503A (product of Belarus) - 6 tonnes bed, V6 engine, noisy inside a cab, high vibration...

    Hydraulic distributor. Am I correct?

    So these are the marks I could find on a casting of distributor: "P", "I", double "T", double "A", double "B", "47" and "49". "A" and "B" are on one piece of casting and another "A" and "B" on the other, which are also connected with two end pieces of casting by long bolts. Totally this...

    Hydraulic distributor. Am I correct?

    I think larger diameter goes to tank. I can't answer the other questions. Needs to find out somehow. Thanks for reminder to use air flow to verify how it goes. I have no possibility to find mark PB right now. I'll do it later.

    Hydraulic distributor. Am I correct?

    This is a distributor which I've got from metal scrap. Don't know what machine it is from. All I know it's made in Sweden. I have only one port of remote valve on a tractor. What if I'll attach this distributor additionally to have many more ports? The thoughts are as follows: 1. I guess...

    Need advice on welding machine purchase

    This is an example I'm now working on. I've just obtained a forklift which I'm going to adapt to my tractor. All is good, machine shop guys have welded the supports (according to my drawings) so they would fit the lift arms of a tractor. But the top link bracket on a forklift is a little bit...

    PTO oil seal issue I never thought will occur

    Jon, thanks for your input. I thought too that I'm missing something. But new seal has a wear ring (as I called it "metal liner") to be mounted on the shaft. That ring has rubberized internal surface like it must be. And the catalogue doesn't show any additional part(s). But you made me...

    PTO oil seal issue I never thought will occur

    The PTO oil seal started leaking between the rubberized metal liner and the shaft. Ordered new one via local Kubota dealer, payed $48. I was surprised when realized that the brand new seal doesn't fit my tractor. The internal diameter of new seal is larger in 3 mm. The 6 slot shaft is of 35 mm...

    I must say very BIG THANKS TO ALL OF YOU, guys, for the advises! No matter if it falls even behind schedule. All you have written here is clear and useful to me. Although the situation has changed (we refused to obtain a hay collector), but the subject you have replied on will work for me in...

    Coupling a one-way cylinder to M9000

    I'm going to attach a hay collector to my tractor. To do this I have to have a possibility to couple a one-way additional cylinder to be operated by the 3PH position control lever. But a problem is that I can't find a port for such connection on a tractor. Can anyone help me to find that port on...

    Question about 3pt hitch dump boxes

    That's true. To set off a bucket I'm using a ballast adapted from unknown tractor at the front. Total weight of ballast is 250 kg (550 lbs). Empty bucket weights 210 kg (462 lbs).

    Question about 3pt hitch dump boxes

    Loader Help! Will this bucket fit my loader??? Kubota m9000 with la1251 loader - see pic

    I don't know the story of what and why did it happen. Anyway it looks like the subframe part from the clutch to the rear of a tractor was either absent or weak. Or the FEL was overloaded.

    Comparison 20th century tractors vs 21st century tractors.

    I had never found any discussion in any thread on the TBN about what are the ARGUMENTS of buying an old(er) tractor or staying with it for the decades (including if those were bought new many years ago) versus obtaining modern one. I'm not taking into account the possibilities of a budget. Some...
