    Gas powered water pump questions

    I am new to the world of water pumps (as you will see), never have owned one. Not new to country living though. Here in Virginia we're suffering through a drought and my gardens are withering. I have been watering from our well sparingly to keep things alive but I don't want to do that too...

    Traction Deere 4710 MFWD not engaging

    I have a 2003 4710 e-Hydro with a 460 loader and 330 hours on it. I bought it at an auction this summer and so far have just used it for light bush hogging and haying on level pasture. I have not tried to (or needed to) engage the MFWD for a while. Soon after I bought it I hit the MFWD button...

    Snow Equipment Owning/Operating bucket vs. front mounted 3-position blade

    I live in VA and winter is coming fast upon us. I have a JD 4710 MFWD with a 460 FEL and Hydro trans. This is my first tractor I bought this summer and have not had it through a winter yet.

I cannot easily take my tractor to that place to hook it up and try it out, he says it works great but who knows. I have two questions (well, maybe three depending on how you...

    Buying Advice Deere 4700 "plastic" body parts

    Yesterday I went to look at a used 2000 JD 4700 with 1800 hours on it, FEL, PowerReverser tranny. The tractor ran and sounded good, all the fluids were clean, the FEL control stick was somewhat tight I thought and the loader was quite slow but no leaks. The clutch was strong - overall a good...

    Looking at a used Deere 5310 - a few questions

    Forgive me if this isn't all exactly in the right forum. I looked a used 2000 JD 5310 with 1207 hours. It had the 9x3 SS trans and 540 FEL. Tires have some life but are 50% or more worn. I tried it out in all the gears, forward and reverse, and it shifted easily and handled great. The...

    Opinions wanted: NH Boomer 3040 used, LS R3039 new

    My wife and I recently purchased her grandfather's 80-acre farm, mostly pasture, and I'm in the market for a 4WD utility tractor with FEL. We had an Allis 5040 with no FEL that only started and sometimes ran on certain moon phases. That went goodbye at the auction. My limit to spend, $15-18K...
