    Off-Topic - Dirtbike carb Q (LOOK AT PICS PLEASE)

    Yamaha PW-80 kids Dirtbike, Mikuni carb. Just took the carb apart and put back together. These 2 ports were open without any hoses when I found the bike (it was essentially a dumpster find) so I'm not sure where they should get routed to, if anywhere... or capped. Any ideas? (Note - the bike...

    Any snowmobile owners who own tractors?

    Good thread! We're down in S/E Michigan. Didn't get a ton of changes to rise this year but it wasn't terrible. The kids were able to ride around the property a bunch. The wife and I have vMax 600's and the kids each have Enticer 340's.

    Mowing L5740 set-up/combination

    I used to pull an 8 ft Ford pull mower, pto-to-belt driven... My machine has about 40 PTO hp. Could pull it up hills, could cut grass and weeds. Was a really great mower. I sold it and got an 8ft Ford flail-mower instead. The flail does a great job but I think the rotary mower left a nicer...

    Dangit... Accidentally caused myself a bunch of work (engine repair)

    Full rebuild... Spun bearings and damaged 2 rods with excessive heat. New crank. 2 (of 4) new rods, new pistons, bearings & seals, bored .10 over but head and block were checked and were good. Rebuilt the fuel pump and injectors. New water pump. All new gaskets & seals. Probably more I...

    2019 F350 crew cab lariat question

    Ok thanks, glad to hear the ride is improved with the newer models. I know my 2014 isn't "old" and I keep it in great shape.... But my only really complaint is the ride quality. I agree with you, the diesel is obviously more powerful. I don't want to turn this into a gas-vs-diesel thing...I'm...

    Bought a 1999 NH 445D

    Nice looking machine! I had a 545d that o really liked. Ended up selling it because I wasn't using it enough. Tough machines.

    Leveling topsoil for new lawn

    Perfect way to finish it after that is with a Landscape Tiller (ATI Preseeder is what I use). Very expensive tool ($12k) but the finished product is very nice.

    Mowing.....Tell us about your yard weapons.

    Mine is a Hustler Super Z Diesel, 66" deck, Shibaura 25 HP motor. She's a beast, about 1600 lbs wet. Very smooth ride for a ZTR. She wasn't cheap but she's paid off and should last a long time. I mow about 5 acres at home and a couple commercial accounts on occasion. The grass in this...

    Quite a shocker let me tell you

    Re: Be very careful if you are considering a Mahindra You can also try Northern Diesel Controls in Sterling Heights, Mich. They rebuilt the injector pump and injectors on my track loader and did a great job.

    Trade MF1547 for MF1749?

    I just checked TractorHouse again and you are right, very thin pickings. I'm not sure when the last time I checked was but it wasn't too terribly long ago. They were more available then than there are now to be sure... This one looks pretty interesting, (the one with no price). It doesn't have...

    Massey Compact owners: hydraulic system maintenance

    Just an update... The original part number for the metal-mesh suction filter is 7069948M91 but I believe that number was replaced by 6255299M92. Those are Agco numbers. They are around $130/ea (2 required). Here's pics of the SKU #. Also, here's something interesting. I usually use...

    Comparison Which manufacturer has the highest HP true HST tractor?

    I just sold my Ford/NH 545D industrial Tractor/Loader. It has a shuttle lever with a torque converter. Not clutch operated... No clutch to be found. They don't make them anymore. I think 2001 was the end of the line. Easy to operate... Not as easy as HST but not bad. Crazy strong loader.

    New Holland TN60DA - Tell me about this tractor please... or TN70DA, 75DA, etc

    Can anyone please tell me about their experiences with the TNxxDA cab machines? I'm considering jumping up a tad from my Massey 1652, but still need a cab tractor under a certain height. My Massey is about 92" to the top of the cab, and according the specs, the TNxxDA machines are also around...

    Dangit... Accidentally caused myself a bunch of work (engine repair)

    Well I got everything disconnected except for 1 bolt - the bottom retaining bolt that secures the engine thru the frame to the hydraulic pumps... It's a really tight bolt and I don't have the right sized 3/4" wrench to properly grab it (I'll try to search the stores tomorrow). But otherwise...

    Dangit... Accidentally caused myself a bunch of work (engine repair)

    Had drained my small pond and was re-carving it to be both a bit larger and a tad deeper. Everything was going "swimmingly" ([emoji12] ) until I moved to the back side and was gonna push some of the material down hill. It was crusty on top but it was a false-top... Didn't realize it was...

    Tundra Update

    The frame issues were mainly related to the Gen1 Tundras, 2006 & older. I had a 2004 Sequoia (SUV version of the Tundra) and it was reviewed by the dealer for potential frame rust. No severe rust was found but they applied an undercoating on their dime. If it would have shown signs of heavy...

    Ford / NH 545D Industrial Tractor - looking for owner experiences

    Thanks for posting your experience with that adapter. Your 210 looks like a nice machine. I haven't been back on this forum much because I've been so busy with work, so I figure I will update on this machine. I really like the 545d. It's tough, the loader is fantastic, the Hydraulics are...

    ViaSat (Formerly Exceed)

    We have Viasat here (Excede/WildBlue). We can't get cable OR DSL at our house, so it's our only viable option. We tried HughesNet first but it was really bad. That was about 6 years ago, but we dumped it before signing directly with Viasat. Note that at that time, HughesNet actually leased...

    Ford / NH 545D Industrial Tractor - looking for owner experiences

    Yeah that's what I was trying to ask before, if I needed to put it in neutral since there is no clutch. I noticed that there is no button on the loader joystick to dump the trans, I found it on the floor instead.

    Ford / NH 545D Industrial Tractor - looking for owner experiences

    Sprayed her down and removed the cab-fenders. They'll need minor repairs, and I'll probably just remake them so they're not as bulky. Hooked up the LPGS and graded the street. It definitely pulls better than my 4000 pound lighter Massey with 55 HP and HST. I could grade uphill in range 6 of...

    Ford / NH 545D Industrial Tractor - looking for owner experiences

    Well, she's here! So far so good! She's very clean... Although as soon as it warms up i need to spray her off, get the road grime and salt washed off. I will need to do a little bit of "rust-repair" on the cab and fenders, but it's minor. Considering the age and hours, she's in really nice...

    Ford / NH 545D Industrial Tractor - looking for owner experiences

    Well boys, it took awhile but i finally made a deal on a very clean City Owned 545D. A really great JD dealer in Iowa facilitated the deal and brought her in to their shop for a full checkup. They found and replaced a few leaking hoses and even put her on their PTO dyno to make sure she ran...

    Flat face hydraulic connectors are better?

    I have FF couplers on my Terex/ASV track machine. I don't have any problems with the connections and I prefer them to the ball Ag style couplers. Like others have already mentioned, I find them much easier to clean and they do seem to leak less fluid. On that machine, I have a button on top...

    Help me manage my expectations for this tree puller, please

    I have one just like that (Hawz brand) for my tracked skid-steer, which has a substantially stronger loader than what is found on our compact tractors. I have ripped out hundreds of trees with mine, ranging all the way up to 12" in some cases. I have been very happily surprised with the...

    New Tractor and Flail Mower

    Very nice. I run my 90" 918h behind my Massey 1652 HST which has around 40'ish PTO HP. What made you upgrade to the new flail? Was it just a matter of getting new equipment? And congrats on the new tractor, I'll be interested to hear how you feel about the CVT transmission compared to your...

    Ford / NH 545D Industrial Tractor - looking for owner experiences

    Well i checked out this one today... Local to me. Ran really well. Has a "quick attach" bucket and forks. Nice heavy implements. Brakes need adjusting. Downside is that the cab is pretty rusted. It also doesn't have rear remotes, so they're gonna get back with me this week on pricing to...

    84" Too much bucket for Kubota M7060 HDC12?

    Dump trailer blues... sometimes a lot is just too much.

    I have a LoadTrail 16' 14k "King size" dump trailer. The sides flare out wider to allow for increased volume and room to maneuver around your equipment. It doesn't allow you to carry extra weight, but definitely helps for extra volume. I think my PJ trailers are of better quality than my...

    New Holland 54D vs Massey 1758

    Jeff it looks great. My Grandpa worked for Ford Tractor here in Mich. If Ford and New Holland were still together, I'd be more inclined to gravitate toward them. I've always liked the color scheme! I think they changed the loader tower-mount on the new machines. The ones I've seen, the...
