    Garden tractor reccomendations?

    I love and respect mine. too, but she likes to groom the forest to look like a park. After 33 years together, she also knows that I can fix anything. I love the fabricated deck on the mower - it's stout and easy to repair. When we bought the place, it included a Deere L120 - ran great, but...

    Garden tractor reccomendations?

    Bought a Husqvarna back in April, 2017. Another new GT48DXLS owner - Thanks to TBN I have steep terrain with lots of emerging rocks. Also lots of trees, so I went with a 48" deck instead of the 54". This is my riding brush mower, used for reducing the fire danger on my five acres of mountain...

    Value Proposition: What Makes Your Brand Of Tractor Better Than The Others?

    The decision to go with the Kioti was very much influenced by the dealer. Lots of manufacturers produced a 30-35hp CUT with a manual transmission. The Mahindra "dealer" was a finance company - sold utility trailers and Mahindra tractors. Used an independent repair service. Only stocked HST...

    Is a 6' box blade too much for a compact?

    When I bought my 34hp Kioti, the dealer had a Rhino BH66 box blade that was a bit sun faded. Made me a smokin' deal on it, and it's a good match. 5 1/2 feet.

    Value Proposition: What Makes Your Brand Of Tractor Better Than The Others?

    I tried to buy a Deere, but the local dealer simply didn't want my business - and they own all the JD locations in 100 miles of here. The Kioti dealer was and is fantastic - and other dealers locally spoke highly of them. They treat me like I'm a valued customer. I don't make a living from my...

    Thinking of building a small towable mobile power/welding unit?

    When I was trying to do a mobile package, I went with a Hobart Handler 135 Mig unit on a 5k (6.5k peak) generator. It would not power my Lincoln tombstone adequately for even 3/32" rod. It did OK with the Handler, welding hinges onto steel tubing posts. Finally bit the bullet and bought a...

    My turn to buy a battery

    The Exide battery that came in my Kioti celebrated it's 7th birthday by refusing to take a charge. It was a messy one, leaving behind lots of acid droppings. I decided to eliminate that mess, and research lead me to the NAPA The Legend Premium AGM Group 34 battery. Pulled the old battery...

    Hauling Sub-Compact.

    That looks like quite a few homebuilt trailers I've encountered. The axle looks to be mounted at the midpoint of the cargo box, which balances the gravel load all on the axle (mobile home axle, too). Slipper springs, and light ones at that. A properly built box trailer should have closer to...

    It's hard to beat AC/DC stick for versatility. I don't use mine often, but it's a real asset when I do. I own several welding machines - Mig, Tig, stick, and an engine-driven Bobcat 250. but I'm not a pro. I'm just a guy who likes to build and modify stuff. I also like having the right...

    Millermatic 211 vs. Hobart Handler 210MVP

    I'm old school, distrustful of the long-term durability of solid state electronics. I have a Miller Dialarc 250P that's about 40 years old, a Lincoln AC/DC tombstone that's about 30, and a MM210 that's about 20. All work like new. None are lightweight machines. I don't know if the inverters...

    I want to buy your tractor... what will you accept

    When we bought our used motorhome, about a two-hour drive away, we drove up and did the inspection, came home and did some research, called the seller and negotiated a price. Made an appointment with the seller to meet at his bank, and took cash - had to arrange for the cash a couple of days...

    Harbor Freight Tools that don't suck

    BXpanded Piranha Tooth Bar~ Best method to use it....

    Two years later, I'm happy with it. It's far superior to the plain bucket edge for digging and for clearing vegetation. I used a drawbar, some scrap steel, a 55 gallon plastic drum, and 600lbs of sacked concrete to make a ballast weight for the rear.

    Estimate of the Cost of Welding

    Added a couple pieces of 1/4" plate, secured by the new longer mounting bolts. Now it all lines up properly, and looks right to me. Mounting arms are well supported, with just a little extra work. I just couldn't live with it as supplied.

    Tightening the bolts will make the end reach the bucket side, but that would be the only contact point. If I shim it, there will be support all the way back.
