    I just bought a NH 316 square baler and am hoping to have it picked up and brought home by a rollback. It is about 90 miles away and I'd have to drive through a good sized city to bring it back. Also, I have broken down on the side of the road with a baler before and don't want to do that...

    Curious Oil drip on zg222

    I recently bought a kubota zg222 mower with the fabricated deck from a friend. I've done all the fluid and filter changes necessary for the 200 hour mark. I do not like how the mower slings so much dirt out from under the deck but I've been putting up with it for now. I noticed the cut was...

    I'm needing to service the antifreeze in my M6800. I was planning on changing the hoses as well. I have sourced the hoses and 2 out of 3 are not in stock online at Messicks. I can buy them now at a fraction of the cost if I buy aftermarket. As long as the angles of the hoses is correct, is...

    I'm wondering if any of you guys who have owned a MTL grapple for a while can give me your impressions on the implement. Any problems, likes/dislikes, etc. I'm leaning heavily towards buying one from those guys in January. Their price is very tempting and their build quality looks good to me...

    I recently bought a 2010 L4400 HST with 305 hours on it. I just used it to pull an old MF3 square baler after cutting the 8 acre field using my M6800 with a NH451 sickle mower. The tractor did fine pulling and operating the baler but getting the baler back home (maybe 3 miles, mostly uphill)...

    So last year I bought a 14T baler that had been reportedly sitting in a shed for 20 years or so. The guy I got it from bought it from his neighbor and he couldn't get it to work at all.
