    8n alternator replacement

    It's been 6 or 7 years since I had the little 8n redone and thankfully I've had to do very little wrenching on it in the time since. My battery quit charging lately so I decided the alternator was probably the culprit. I took it down to Autozone where they tested it and sure enough it was dead...

    New fan.....

    I'm aware that TYM exists and of its connections with Mahindra, etc. They never grabbed me much as a stand alone brand primarily due to their bug-eyed appearance and the fact they've been a fringe player, again, etc. This afternoon I was driving back from the ranch and passed once again by...

    Homelite 14" from Home Depot

    I needed a little saw for the town place and have spent some time looking over all of the makes and models and re-mans, etc. Most of my experience is with Husqvarnas and they are good saws. We've got a couple of them for the ranch but I got tired of hauling them around and never having the...

    Tractor submerged.....

    Well, ****.... The little 8n got about 80% covered this morning as the bottom fell out of this tropical storm that just passed through our area. We've had some extreme rain before and the water has gotten about 1/3 of the way up the rear tires but never like this. I've never seen that much...

    Hydraulic brakes....

    I've been looking at 16' trailers (rail and car hauler) but I don't see any new ones equipped with hydraulic tongue brakes..........only electric. Does anyone know of a trailer like this being made with them or as an option? I've looked at the possibility of buying a hydro hitch and...

    Pickup/SUV incentives these days....

    Sort of related to this forum, but I've been intrigued by some of the recent incentives on full-sized vehicles. I have an 06' F-150 Super Crew that I absolutely love....best vehicle I've ever owned and I have had no interest in parting with it. BUT.... Ford is now offering employee pricing...

    Fire-line plow....

    I've seen the professionally built fire-plows, towed and mounted, but I'm wondering if anyone has built a homegrown version for a compact tractor. There are the single gang discs, but I would like to build one out of a middle buster and old plow discs that a 30-40hp tractor could pull at a...

    You never know....

    This may be the wrong forum for this, but it has to do with implements, so. I posted on here a month ago regarding the positives/negatives of the Howse and KingKutter shredders. I got a good response from everyone (thank you), and decided the KK was my best bet in what was until that time a...

    Shredding charge...?

    I'm transplanted country boy in the city and I've been itchin' for a little tractor time, so I've decided to try a part time tractor shredding biz. I've got the tractor and shredder, a little liability insurance, and just about all the things I think I might need. But, I don't know what to...

    Mini square baler for CUTs....

    It seems I remember seeing someone ask a question about their compact tractor running a conventional square baler, but I can't seem to find the post. I just saw this.. Ebay CUT baler...onEbay and thought there might be someone here interested. Quaint looking little outfit, but I wonder how...

    KingKutter vs. Howse

    I'm sure this has been covered a million times on this board, but I'll ask again anyway. I'm looking at two 5' 3pt shredders for the same identical price-both have shear pin PTO and stump jumper. The Howse appears heavier built, but by the specs the King Kutter is identical in weight. I've...

    Eicher...

    Jus curious as to whether any of you have any experience with the Eicher tractors on the market...? I'm looking for something new and they are, of course, a contender largely on price. But, how are they doing out there in the field? Thanks in advance.....

    Mahindra 4500...

    I'm sure this has been asked before, but I'm sort of a newbie. What are you folks' impressions of the Mahindra 4500. Never thought about the Mahindras much until now...area dealer is offering some great incentives etc. The 4500 should do what I want with a 6-8' shredder, box blade, and maybe...
