    Splicing underground wire

    The wire doesn’t have to come to the surface.....just the lid of the box. And they make box extensions if you don’t want to make something to be below the box.

    Corona Virus # 3

    The coronavirus is more common in animals. It has crossed over to humans in different forms over the years. This version “they think” crossed over from either a cat or dog in the Wuhan market in China. This is from the CDC website-

    Mahindra 2538 HST max fork lift weight?

    I have the 1538 and a set of SSQA forks. I think the lift is similar. The lift cylinder angle actually makes the lift capacity worse when it’s close to the ground. I don’t think you will be lifting those pallets- or even coming coming close. I’d say the post above is about right- #1000 I can...

    Cross Over or DRV adjustment

    I have a snow plow with a 2 hydraulic cylinder angle adjustment. I installed a cross over relief valve and would like to “properly” adjust the relief valve. Is their a way to do this with just Tractor hydraulic pressure? I know I can push one side against a rock and adjust the relief by “feel”...

    Fence painting - paint and device

    A lot of updates to paint in the last few years. They have paints that claim to have the primer in them. Otherwise I’d Prime first. Two coats total either way. Home Depot paint has been rated very highly by Consumer Reports. I’d stick with that. An airless sprayer is definitely the way to...

    Show Us Your Favorite Vises

    Joystick cable adjustment....maybe!

    I’m borrowing the neighbor’s tractor which is a 10ish year old Kubota probably in the 40-50hp range. It has two interesting things happening. 1- if the 3 pt control lever is all the way up the loader controls are very slow. Moving the lever down even a small amount brings back full loader...

    Spider Invasion

    I use both of these together and get 4-6 months. The ortho is good for most things but I added the other when I had a hard time with flees. Read the directions. The ortho has a much higher strength for around the foundation. I spray inside and out. About $25 will last me several years- I do...

    Tractor Washing

    I understand a steam cleaner or pressure washer will do wonders for cleaning the tractor. I’m just wondering if someone has found anything else that is serviceable? Dawn soap, simple green, canned degreaser from the auto parts store etc.

    Air Nozzle Tractor Inspection

    To start- I’ve always been one who looks over my vehicles (sometimes required by law) on a routine basis. I’d do the same with the tractor. I’ve caught a few things early that saved me some hassle later on. I’ve been doing some work in moon dust lately- it sucks! The first day I finished I...

    71M MIG Wire

    Anyone tried the 71M wire for MIG? I do mostly tractor/farm type fab and repairs. This seems like a good fit.....on paper anyway. Just wondering if anyone has used it and could compare it to anything else. Maybe it’s more Like XXX stick or it’s not worth it for a homeowner or it’s the greatest...

    Tired of the battery acid (optima battery)

    After constantly chasing spilled battery acid all over the front on my machine I fixed it. It seemed I was spraying neutralizer all the time with little luck. The latch even started showing signs of damage. Once the old battery was removed, I cleaned everything and repainted it. The Optima is a...

    3-Point Hitch Bent, broken telescoping anti sway arms on Mahindra.

    Well I had the temp fix for a few weeks and finally found a nice “permanent” replacement. So far so good. I used the box for an hour or so to both push and pull and they seem to be holding up fine. Time will tell! I found a few bushings to go from the 7/8” hole down to the 1/2” pins on the link...

    New Kubota B2650

    I have a Mahindra 1538 which is a 38 HP machine. With pallet forks (not the clamp on the bucket style) I could lift the pallet in your second photo. I think the B series will be right on the edge with that load. With something on the 3pt for counter balance (I like my BB) and some light forks...

    Snow Equipment Owning/Operating Blade Wing?

    I have a CUT with a box scraper that stays on all the time and a FEL with SSQA. In the winter I attach a snow blade that has hydraulic angle. The setup has treated me very well! What I’d like to add is a “wing” or something similar to either the box scraper or front blade that would add 18” or...

    Bleeding air or something else?

    I have a FEL that has had weak curl since new. It now has about 50 hours on it. The dealer added hydraulic top, tilt and rippers and third function- he was into the hydraulics. In my diagnosis I cycled everything several times- grapple, top/tilt/rippers, FEL lift and curl. I also swapped the...

    Building firewood rack from pallets

    I use pallets for my wood. They look like the photo above except they are made from 1x4 with a rope across the top to prevent the sides from pulling apart. All I did was trim the top of the pallet so it was even with the 2x4s that stand on end. I glued and screwed the 1x4 sides on. I get the...

    Floor scraper- near useless?

    I saw this the other day on a demo job site. The steel structure is about 3/4" plate. The scraper edge has bolt on blades that can he changed by loosening the bolts and sliding a new one in. The blades are laying next to the attachment. This thing looks like it is used mainly for removing vinyl...

    Weak curl function

    Loader 1533/1538 FEL curl

    I have zero complaints about the lift capacity on my 1533. However, I've had a few incidents where I couldn't curl. In other words I could lift but couldn't curl. I've never been on a tractor that did that- it's always been the opposite. Before I go down the custom cylinder route I figured I'd...

    Gate post metal type?
