    Why I do not garden

    We don’t garden to save money… Although we do make money off selling produce.. I’ve never found store bought canned corn, tomatoes, green beans, etc… that even come close to tasting as good, as what we can and freeze for ourselves fresh from our garden.

    Deer eating my small apple trees

    You can use a double fence system a small fence, inside a larger fence, it works wonders.. Milorganite spread around the tree will work, or at least help. as long as you keep it applied And the best solution that worked for us was running 5 strands of electric fence around each tree, We...

    Cardinals v Dodgers

    Just seen this post I too am a die hard cardinals fan. But took this loss better than my wife thought I would, but was still disappointed I thought if they beat the Dodgers, they could very well make it to the WS.. When asked “who I would root for now” I replied “ the Blues”. LGB.!

    Side mounted fire starter. Red Hot exhaust

    WHAT? Lol After seeing my grandparents end up mostly deaf, due to noise exposure I always wear hearing protection anymore My current exhaust sounds similar to a Harley. My neighbor actually likes it. I’ll probably tinker with some other stuff, add some baffles to find a happy medium...

    Side mounted fire starter. Red Hot exhaust

    Yeah I contacted them about the original PT425 exhaust first, and they said without actually seeing how the exhaust was built, they couldn’t give much advice, other than visible glowing manifolds are normal, in low light situations They recommended using a Kohler manifold Which is what I...

    Value of 2008 PT-425 With Seized Motor

    Unless you are just unhappy with the machine I would try to find time to make the trip back to the factory for that price on the labor.

    Side mounted fire starter. Red Hot exhaust

    Spoke with an actual Kohler technician again today about it He reassured me it was normal, And that the current exhaust elbow bend, is not a restriction worry. Guess I’ll build a heat shield around it, for safety, and to keep heat off the tire And not drive it at night. LoL

    It’s a brand new machine. With a new engine from Kohler Im not sure how someone would have adjusted anything on it

    Grapples are one of the most versatile attachments one can own.. I’m sure you will use it constantly I have the PT grapple for my 425 And an EA55 as well Cannot imagine being without one again.

    Side mounted fire starter. Red Hot exhaust

    Put on a factory Kohler exhaust manifold to a stainless 1.5” elbow, and a junk open pipe motorcycle muffler It still glows red at the elbow Which is exactly what Terry told me would happen So the hot exhaust isn’t caused by a restriction Everything on the engine checks out, and it’s only at...

    PT-425 Vapor Lock?

    Would be interested in the replies you get… But that is what it sounds like.

    Side mounted fire starter. Red Hot exhaust

    Sounds like a good setup If my mods don’t work on the factory muffler as well as I want. I’ll try something like that. If nothing else, just to lighten the weight of the darn thing.

    Side mounted fire starter. Red Hot exhaust

    Normal or not, I had to know what the inside of the muffler looked like. So I Cut the PT425 muffler apart to see the internals Will make some modifications to allow more flow I already drilled out the manifold that was mis aligned, I will say, it was all welded up good. LoL

    PowerTrac Specific Modifications

    Yeah the factory lights were awful. I’m probably going to eventually wire one in from the back of the roof, facing rearward, BUT Will wait and see, as it may be a bug magnet. Lol

    Very cool I need to make an extra trip out there to see it

    Prices went up

    Yes it does.!! And as far as I know, they still don’t have a 1430 built with the gas engine to take pictures of. LoL I’m wondering if they are experiencing supply chain issues on it.?

    Prices went up

    PowerTrac had stated they, like almost everyone else, would have to raise prices Looks like they have the website updated

    Moly grease

    Is anyone using Moly grease on their PT machines? I had asked Terry, and he said any quality lithium grease would be fine. But i have a case of moly from Tractor supply just sitting in the shop..

    PT 425 update

    On the sickle, I may be trying to do something similar. Depending on if I can find the parts at a reasonable price point. And on the exhaust. Terry said it was normal, so long as I’m only seeing it at night. I’m still not liking it. Lol Will probably investigate more when the weather cools...

    Side mounted fire starter. Red Hot exhaust

    He said it was pretty much normal I’ve been using the 1430, and haven’t had time to look into the 425 anymore, to make sure everything checks out, will probably look into it more by the weekend

    NEW 22 HP ROBIN ENGINE

    Price seems high, BUT A quick google search doesn’t show anyone having one in stock at a lower price. I would bet that the engine at PowerTrac is NOS. New but old stock. As far as wiring harness, if you are meaning wiring on the machine, PowerTrac would be your only option.

    Side mounted fire starter. Red Hot exhaust

    It’s brand new, so I’m not sure timing would be off, but I’m going to look into everything before using it again Having not used any air cooled small gas powered engines at night before, I’m not sure how much header, and exhaust glow is normal. I do know it runs, starts, and sounds fine, Just...

    Side mounted fire starter. Red Hot exhaust

    It was low light, almost dark Only reason, it looks more like daylight, is I was under a dusk-dawn light when I took the pic It still doesn’t seem right, lol but engine is brand new, starts, and runs fine, with no loss of power, no misses, backfires Etc.

    PT 425 Kohler 25 HP Engine

    I also bought a 1430. I will admit to being a bit enamored with the PowerTrac platform. Like Moss said, be sure you go sit on a couple and operate them. The 1430 is much larger than the 425, and seems to have considerably more torque, but is less maneuverable in tight places. The value of a...

    PT 425 Kohler 25 HP Engine

    Pics of current engine model number, Looks to be 730 model number and layout. I haven’t mowed enough to know the gallons per hour, but have heard others say gallon per hour, and that seems reasonable to me I do know, at 1/2- 3/4 throttle just using the grapple moving brush, using the forks...

    PT 425 Kohler 25 HP Engine

    I just bought a new 425 I’ll try to take pics of engine model number tomorrow But I do know the machine is slope limited due to engine, not the machine. I asked about that specifically when I was there. I will say, that the machine is capable of slopes that are uncomfortable for me. Lol

    48” finish mower.

    It does adjust to cut lower, by moving the collars around on the shafts. And moving the rear wheels to different holes. I was just surprised it would cut up to 6” high, as I thought they told me it only went to 4” I wanted it set as high as possible, to cut a clover patch.

    48” finish mower.

    Not sure if this is all factory, as it was used, and I’m not sure of the age But I was surprised to not find grease zerks, for the spindles, only to be told to look under the deck, and voila, there they are. and that it has a cutting height of up to almost 6”. Also a few years of...

    Alternative to EA 55 Inch Wicked Root Rake Grapple ?

    Just seen this. Sorry Would be difficult to post pics, since grapples are long ago sold. Also note in my post, I never mentioned any damage. I just feel EA makes a superior product. But since you asked. The blue Diamond didn’t get damaged at all, it was just way to heavy to be effective and...
