    John Deere Model B vs Farmall Super C?

    Yeah, I'm not looking to do any "real" work with it. Just for show and play.

    John Deere Model B vs Farmall Super C?

    To piggyback off another thread here, I'm looking for a strictly "fun" vintage tractor. Needs to be something small, but bigger than say a Farmall Cub. I'm a big guy and don't want to look like I'm driving an oversized lawnmower. Main purposes would be going to tractor shows, driving in...

    Rotary Tiller J2030

    Definitely not a good thing to turn with a ground engaging implement still in the ground. Something has to give somewhere. I used a 5ft with my J2023 and it worked just fine.

    What Attachment for Making Fire Breaks?

    There’s also a Dearborn 10-1 plow that is actually right down the road from me. Guy wants $250 for it but it does not have a tail wheel.

    What Attachment for Making Fire Breaks?

    Guys, I just don’t have the funds to buy a rotary tiller. And while it worked great, my plot was hard on it due to all the rocks and roots. I found someone selling a 2 blade disk plow (not a harrow) that’s a little closer but he wants $385 for it.

    What Attachment for Making Fire Breaks?

    Guys, I'm looking for a new attachment to use at my hunting property. I have a 2 acre plot that I let grow up in native grasses each year and then over the winter I burn it all off clean and start fresh again next year. Before, I was using my father in law's rotary tiller to make a dirt "ring"...

    Single ATV Trailer Ideas

    Hey everyone, I'm in the market for a replacement trailer for my ATV. I really have a specific use/need and I'll explain why. I currently have a 4x7 homemade, all-steel trailer and I've replaced so much stuff that I'm tired of working on it. The metal is getting rusted and I think it's time...

    Thinking about a Farmall...

    I really have no need for one, but I’ve just been wanting one. My Gpa has a really nice Super H that I just love to drive and play around on. I have a 5 year old boy who also loves to drive it around the yard (with me of course). My Gpa also had a Super C for a while but sold it because he...

    First Antique Tractor?

    Hey guys, I'm thinking about buying an antique tractor for something to play with. I already have a 40hp tractor with a loader, hydraulics, and 4wd. I'm really just looking for something to tinker with and maybe pull a blade or landscape rake. I don't really have a lot of mechanical ability...

    Poulan Pro 42cc Bar Replacement

    Guys I think I’m gonna put a new bar and chain on my Poulan Pro PR4218. It’s 42cc and has an 18” bar. I just bought an Echo Timberwolf 22” bar so I’m thinking of putting a shorter bar on the Poulan for more of a limbing/trail saw. Should I go with a 14 or 16” bar?

    50-60cc Saw Recommendation

    Guys, I’m looking for a 50-60cc saw somewhat on a budget. I currently have the 30cc Stihl MS170 with a 14” bar and it works pretty good for limbing and cutting smaller trees, but there are times when I have a need for something bigger. I had a Poulan Pro 18” 42cc but it didn’t like to start for...

    Chainsaw Sizing

    Fellas, I’m thinking about upgrading chainsaws but I have very little knowledge about what might be “right” for me. Right now, I have 2 saws for different purposes and that system seems to work well though I’m not entirely happy about my saws that I currently have. One saw is small and...

    300-400cc ATV Recommendations for $1700-$2200?

    Alright guys, my old Kawasaki Prairie 360 laid down on me to the point where it's gonna cost more to fix than it's worth combined with the fact that additional repairs will be more frequent now due to it's age. It's time to start looking for a replacement. I have plenty of time to look for the...

    Tent Setup for Hunting Season

    Hey everyone, looking for some opinions on a tent setup for deer season this fall. My property is only 25 miles from my house and the last few years I have just been driving back and forth each day and night. This year I’ve decided to just camp out and stay for 2-3 days at a time. The gravel...

    How to you store the random oil jugs?

    I also “developed” this handy-dandy cheat sheet for all of my machines so I can quickly find out their maintenance schedule, oil type, amount, filter, tire pressure, etc, without having to flip through a half dozen different manual. Gonna hang this on the wall above my workbench.

    Should I Get A Second Generator?

    Hey everyone, I’m kind of a “gadget/toy” person and generators are one of my favorite things. I just like the feeling of comfort knowing I have one, should I ever need. Right now, I have a large Generac 8000/10,000w portable that I keep on hand for powering my whole house should I ever need it...

    Oil & Fuel 300 Hours on Engine Oil?

    Anyone else changing their engine oil every 300 hours? That’s what my manual says, but I’ve always changed every 100 hours on previous tractors. Am I just wasting money changing my oil every 100 hours? I don’t do a lot of serious work with mine, no harsh or rough conditions. I rarely need to...

    How to you store the random oil jugs?

    Tires R3039 Rear Tire Fill?

    Wondering if I should fill my rear tires on my R3039? I pretty much had to on my J2023 to get any kind of work done. But with my 3039, I’ve been ok without filling them until I’ve just started using my 3pt cultivator to break ground for my food plots. I’ve got plenty of power, but I lose...

    Do I Need Trailer Brake?

    I just bought a 16ft tandem axle trailer to tow my tractor and brush hog out to my land. The trailer will be a little project as it needs completely rewired for lights, needs a new deck, etc. I figured after I remove the deck boards, I’d go ahead and rewire the lights. Wondering if I should go...

    Machine for trail clearing?

    Guys I’m trying to decide if it’s worth buying some kind of cheap dozer or something for doing some trail clearing on my 100 acre property. I’m part of a state program and federal EQIP program to do some prescribed burns in certain sections of my property. Putting in the trails will serve as...

    Sell my UTV for What?

    Hey guys, about 4 years ago I bought a UTV, a super clean, low mile/hour Yamaha Rhino 450. At the time, all I had was an old Honda 3-wheeler, so this was a nice upgrade. I mainly used it for riding around the subdivision and running up and down the gravel roads "cruising". It is a great...

    Plow for LS R3039

    Guys I’ve had 2 acres of woods cleared for food plots last summer. The ground has never been worked and it’s been compacted by the dozer that cleared the trees. I’ve tried breaking up the ground with a chisel plow and a 3pt disc, but neither did more than scratch the surface. Someone said I...

    Ag Lime Spreader?

    My dad says he has an old Deere grain drill with all the blades and crap removed that they used to use as basically a drop seeder. It’s almost identical to this one, but smaller. Do you think it would work for ag lime?

    Ag Lime Spreader?

    I’m in search of some kind of implement that I can use to spread ag lime on my food plots. I need to spread about 6-7 tons of ag lime. Pelletized lime is going to be ridiculously expensive for the amount I need. There are absolutely NO places that rent lime buggies within an hour drive of me...

    Bought my second LS!

    A little over 3 years ago, I bought a new J2023. It was a good, solid machine and served me well. But last fall I bought a large hunting property and quickly found out that my J2023 was just way to small for working out there. So I decided to sell it this summer. I ended up selling it for $700...

    Comparison Help me compare these 4 tractors!

    I drove 4 hours one way today to an LS dealer in MS and bought the R3039. The tractor was extremely clean and well taken care of. Exactly what I hoped it would be. I checked it over thoroughly and found everything to be as good as new. I can't say a negative thing about it. The engine just...

    John Deere 950 2WD for Food Plots?

    I've been looking at upgrading my LS J2023 to a larger machine since I purchased some hunting property. I recently had 2 acres of timber cleared on top of the highest ridge to be used for dedicated food plots. I know my little J2023 just doesn't have the weight to do much in the way of...
