    Backhoe Proper way to park tractor w backhoe when not in use?

    Ok so just wondering, when i park my tractor with backhoe i guess there are two options. 1. rest the backhoe on the ground 2. Put the boom pin in, and let the backhoe just hang on the tractor. is one way better than another? I think using the boom pin is more convenient and space saving, i...

    Do you have any Oil/Fluid changing time saving efficiency tips?

    Ok well it hit me this spring that i have a ton of machines i need to maintain. Changing oil mainly. I wanted to poll the group to see if they have any time saving tips when changing oil. Or even tips that make the job a lot easier. For me the most time consuming parts are getting the oil...

    Backhoe How do you dig a trench with a CUT backhoe?

    Cool yea i completely understand even the engineering of a real backhoe is different. hopefully mine is well within it’s limits when doing it. I just wish there was more info in the manual about it.

    Backhoe How do you dig a trench with a CUT backhoe?

    I have a Branson 3620h w a bh250 backhoe. Based off my estimate the machine weighs 7800lbs. bh is subframe mounted. im looking at the manual right now and the boom pin is 32x206mm and the swing frame pins are 45x107mm. I am just guessing that is where most of The stress would be applied. so...

    Backhoe How do you dig a trench with a CUT backhoe?

    I’m defiantly going to try it on flat ground. When i got stuck i was doing it but i didn’t fully raise my tires off the ground bc i was nervous. im trying like mad to research specs to see if doing this is “within the limits” of the tractor. the best I’ve been able to find so far is “boom lift...

    Backhoe How do you dig a trench with a CUT backhoe?

    I definitely want to be able to swing my rear tires over the trench. Basically put my loser bucket down, push the rear up w the boom, and swing sideways. I guess I’m just worried if the machine can handle it w loaded rear tires. But quite honesty of i can’t do that then i feel the machine...

    Backhoe How do you dig a trench with a CUT backhoe?

    Ok so I have to dig trenches. I already dug one, and managed to get myself stuck. I think my machine with BH, Loader, & Loaded Rear Tires weight 7800lbs. I always saw people digging by straddling the trench. No matter what i need a way to cross this trench. So if i straddle it, then i can't...

    Iseki TS2810 Buying Advice?

    This guy was preset adamant about the Iseki being too small. I guess bc he’s just an old school farmer and likes using the proper tools for the job. yea the 484 from what I’ve seen, seems rare, i guess the things it potentially has going for it might be well taken care of vs others and the...

    Iseki TS2810 Buying Advice?

    We actually barely looked at the Iseki. We got to talking about it and he said he was worried we would be getting too small a tractor, then that’s when he showed us the IH we told him it would be for food plots and mowing, once we said food plots that’s when he said we want something bigger...

    Iseki TS2810 Buying Advice?

    Yea it’s a utility which i wasn’t even aware was a class that existed. The machine has 5800 hours on it. I drove it and it seems strong. The paint is all faded, but from a mechanical standpoint it seems it was well maintained and no glaring external issues that i could see. I’m currently trying...

    Iseki TS2810 Buying Advice?

    Hey what’s funny i went to look at the tractor and he asked what we were planning on using it for. I told him cutting grass and foot plots, and he then had us take a look at an IH 484 he was going to sell but didn’t list yet. quite an interesting turn of events, but not sure what I’ll do at...

    IH484 price check

    Saw a IH 484 today with 5800 hrs on it. Perkins diesel, barely any leakage, seems well maintained, no loader or anything and will need tires. seems well taken care of, owner was asking $6k - paint is certainly poor, orange, or non existent. I can’t seem to find much on the tractor, and i...

    Iseki TS2810 Buying Advice?

    Assuming the tractor is in good condition i”d love to get it, it looks real nice, the only issue is potentially the 2wd. This tractor would be used to cut my field which could get wet and also as a recovery tractor in case mine ever gets stuck. fwiw my Branson was in 2wd during spring thaw...

    My new baby and first tractor 3620H

    no i haven't removed it yet. it certainly seems a bit involved ... sort of reminds me of the same type of experience u have needing to put a car on jack stands, just a lot of moving up and down, checking, etc. I don't plan on taking it off anytime soon ... i like your solution very much as...

    Dealing with a unique situation related to underground springs and run off

    I started this thread bc that previous one was about digging trenches. this one is more about trying to understand the mechanics of what’s going on underground and causing the field to be wet.

    Dealing with a unique situation related to underground springs and run off

    It’s a state road and in the spot where the most water comes there’s someone’s property before the road. so it’s the road, then the swales which are on a neighbors property, which the state put in, then my field it’s also not highway water it’s basically a dead end road, just happens to be...

    Can the Branson 20 series mount a trench like the backhoe in this video?

    I didn't try yet. i've only had the tractor for a weekend so far. i thought i read on here the outriggers arent really meant to lift the tractor up .. so thats why i never did it .. i only used them to lift some of the weight of the tractor and stabalize it. once i feel the back end lighten up...

    Dealing with a unique situation related to underground springs and run off

    Hey guys .. so i've been trying to comprehend whats goin on with a field in my property since i bought it 3 years ago. We bought it and it was wet, we were puzzled by it and didn't know where the water was coming from. After looking closer at the road, we realized there are about 5 swales which...

    Can the Branson 20 series mount a trench like the backhoe in this video?

    I appreciate you considering doing but i'm not asking you to! I just was checking to see if its within the tractors limitations. I am pretty sure the backhoe can do it .. i am just not sure if its healthy or ok for the tractor/subframe

    Can i move a rock to the side using my backhoe?

    i was just reading a thread on its side to side pushing power ... and yes i completely experienced that. so is it safe to say if i can push it it's probably not enough to bend anything? aka dummy proof? i hear you on hitting it head on, but in many cases like digging a trench or clearing a road...

    Can i move a rock to the side using my backhoe?

    Ok so if theres a rock on the ground, maybe its a decent size. Can I nudge it to the side with my backhoe? Using just the left and right motion of the backhoe? I watched a video where a guy said you could bend the boom - seems shocking to me, but figured i'd check. This would be on a compact...

    Can the Branson 20 series mount a trench like the backhoe in this video?

    I started a trench this weekend and realized straddling the trench is quite tricky when you need to "mount" and "dismount". I mainly learned the hard way when I got stuck trying straddle a trench i already dug. Going back and forth in some malleable clay caught up with me quick! I'm a person...

    My new baby and first tractor 3620H

    The biggest most immediate task is trenching, already have some hand built trenches but need to use the hoe to make them better and route some better. the next two attachments are going to be a grapple and pallet forks, have a lot of down trees and brush we want to clean up down the road will...

    Ebay Pallet Forks? G2G or no?

    My loader lifts 2700 at pins, breakout force is 3600. i figure 2k is fine for most situations, however if i did want to try and pop a rock or stump, that 4K offers added Insurnace. Also if for whatever reason i needed to use only 1 blade to life something, i have 2k of lifting capacity instead...

    Ebay Pallet Forks? G2G or no?

    Well i'm already breaking my first rule which is i don't want to cheap out on any attachments. However the pallet fork market is proving a bit annoying as i hear you can get them used for cheap but i seem unable to do that. Also i can get 2k lbs capacity for $500 which is nice but it seems like...

    Best grapple for brush?

    Carrying things w the grapple is a concern i had, like a chainsaw or gas. i was assuming with the claw style that maybe i could close it and put the things in that way?
