    Ok, I've changed just about all of my fluids in the 450C. However, even with the book, I just don't understand how to change the clutch housing fluid. I see what looks like two drain plugs but I can't seem to locate the fill hole for each side. Any ideas?

    Hanging "Posted" signs- anything other than nails

    I need to hang some No Trespassing/Posted signs but I don't want to use nails/metal hangers, etc. It seems like I remember some sort of composite nails of some kind. I don't think it would take much to hold them up...... Any ideas?

    Brush Hog question: lean backwards?

    I was up to my buddy's last night and he was showing me his new land pride hog- really nice, BTW.

    A buddy of mine was using his TC35 for some brush hogging.....the chaff plugged up his inlet vents in the front of the hood (I've done mine too). He saw in a magazine or something a fan that automatically reverses direction to help with this. He called the company and they said they didn't...

    True Story

    Grandpa loves to tell this one all the time.... Some folks that owned a farm out by grandpa back in the 40's or 50's had a boy that bought a new Farmall A. He hooked it up to his dad's drop plows and tried to plow. Well, the little A just jumped up and down. He got off of the tractor and...

    TC45- accessories

    How do you know what accessories were available for a TC45 when it was purchased new? In looking through threads on here (old ones) I keep finding things I never knew were available. All of my dealers, at the closest, are about 45 minutes away. So, I don't just "run past" on my my home from...

    I'm sold- string trimmer line

    My father-in-law stopped by the other day and had some new string trimmer line that he claimed was the crap.

    Pressure Washer Problems- any pointers??

    My step-dad gave me a Karcher gas power pressure washer. Before he gave it to me, it was acting goofy. When you would pull the trigger it would squirt water but not cause the engine to kick up and for the pump to kick. If you would keep pulling the trigger, sometimes it would catch and cause...

    Excuse my ignorance- bush hogging question

    After reading all the horror stories of being attacked by bees (breathing ivy) while bush hogging. Unless you want to keep everything down every few months, wouldn't it be better to bush hog at the end of winter or VERY early spring and then again during the cool fall? I guess there's a...
