    LS free loader promotion

    "My nearest LS dealer said the same thing about HST. Too many suburbanites with 5 acres or less want HST. He'll order a gear model, but not unless requested." That's true here as well. I'm one of those suburbanites but I always had a gear tractor. When I bought a new one 17 years ago all I...

    LS free loader promotion

    Something to think about. Your area may be different but in my area a tractor without a loader takes much longer to sell. Some people may not need a loader and have specific uses for a non loader tractor but the majority do seem to want one. Two dealers I spoke with years ago would not order a...

    Mcmaster-carr has weldolet fittings. Is this something you could use.

    Insurance is strange!?!

    "It would have been much cheaper to remove the tree before the garage was built." I'm sure it would have been cheaper 30 years ago due to inflation but still would have required a crane. Could not drop the tree in one cut due to neighbors house to the south (less than 90') and my house only 8'...

    Insurance is strange!?!

    I just went through the same thing about 4 months ago. Had a 90' pine that was 3' from the garage for past 30 years. Then we had a bad wind storm with 80-90 MPH winds and the pine was swaying toward the garage just touching it with each gust. Insurance co. told me the same preventative maint...

    Meat Grinder recommendations

    I have the Cabelas commercial grade 1/2HP Grinder. Bought it about 10 years ago for processing deer. It weighs 35lb. and can process 4-6lb per min. It has been flawless for me.

    Towing capacity

    Some things to think about. If your proposed tractor is 3300lb. then add another 1000 for a loader so now 4300lb. Add the minimum trailer weight of 2500lb. and you're up to 6800lb or about maximum for a 7K trailer. Plus any 3pt. attachments and a cab will also add weight so a 7K may not be ideal...

I used to be able to click on TBN from my laptop bookmarks and be logged in automatically but my laptop system has updated recently and now I do have to log in each day. I haven't found out what changed. Apparently when I...

    Need opinions 2016 Chevrolet 2500HD

    I have this same truck. A 2016 CC std bed with 6.0 bought new but with 4WD. Bought it for towing and I'm pleased with the power. About the only thing I don't like is the poor MPG but it is built to tow. I have recently checked and found retail book values between 34-36K but mine has low miles...

    Snow plow set up, which way?

    I have lived in snow country my entire life and plowed snow for the past 50 plus years. Most of those years I only plowed my own driveway with a truck plow. I plowed with a friend who had many contracts as a sub contractor. He always paid me on time per job. I moved and decided to start my own...

    Differential lock was stuck

    I had the same problem on my 2615HST. Where the linkage goes into the trans it was sticking. I guess it had rust buildup due to being left outside in the rain. No way to lube. I used a spray penetrating oil and manually worked the pedal up and down. At first I had to pry the pedal up and step on...

    3 acres, greenhouses & heavy loader work + snow removal, Am I going too Big, Kubota M5-111?

    I'd guess that if you may plan on lifting 2600# noted in your post #4 you can get by with a 40-50HP tractor as most will have that lift capacity. They will also weigh less than the MF 2650 HD you're looking at and be withing your tow rating..

    What Do You Do With Your Waste Oil?

    I have the older model XR3037HC. I installed my own radio, a Sony. I don't use the bluetooth. The general consensus here is the factory speakers are not that great. Others have replaced them and have posted better results. The sound they produce reminds me of vehicle radios and speakers back in...

    Trailer Size

    Never heard of a trailer with 8333 pound capacity but I would go for the larger trailer. Who knows, you may want to haul the tractor at sometime with several attachments. Plus a larger trlr will make it easier to balance your load. A 16' trlr may be marginal for your tractor length including the...

    That is correct. The Boomer uses the same antenna just has MT in front of the number.
  20. George2615


    Neither, Its for AM/FM radio in cab. I don't use my tractor enough to warrant installing a ham radio and antenna.:LOL:

    Order a replacement from your dealer. I know of no aftermarket one that mounts the same. I have to order one also. A low hanging pine tree branch snapped it in half. My temp fix was to slide some heat shrink on it and shrink it. My friends XR4140HC uses an all stainless antenna. Mine is flexible...

    Well, McGoo, you did it again!

    The TNT site is working for me. Only reason I go there is to check out Cowboy Ron's latest memes. I hate all the politics though.

    Ibrahim updated settings so I tried to insert image again but still not working. I'm using a laptop with windows 10 and Firefox. The only way I can post an image is to use attach files at the bottom.

    LED bar light experience?

    I installed the combo spot/flood LED lights on mine about 5 years ago. Not the curved bar. mine are straight (either 22 or 24" I think). I made brackets to mount them front and rear. They are much brighter than stock lights. They are blinding if you are in front of them. And No, mine don't offer...

    Help can稚 figure this out quick hitch issue One side seats the other side does not.

    Re: Help can稚 figure this out quick hitch issue One side seats the other side does You need to either lower the top hook (red arrow) or raise the bolt (yellow) so the lower pin can sit down further. The top bolt (yellow) is probably bottomed out in the hook preventing the lower pin from seating.

    XR3135HC Opinions and snowplow blade vs. blower

    Hi Mike and :welcome: to TBN I have the older version of the tractor you are looking at purchasing. Mines an XR3037HC and I have a 7 1/2' Quick attach plow for the front and a double auger blower for the 3 pt. It works fine on my gravel driveway. I like it better than plowing with my truck since...
