    The X350 specs lists a K46 hydro but the lowe's site that sells the lower class D140 tractors doesn't list the tranny number. Does anyone know which transmission is in the D140 or could link a spec sheet that gives that information? thanks

    Wind Generation

    Has anyone ever seen evidence of a buried cable from any of the large wind generators in your area or a power sub-station to distribute electric power? I've driven by thousands and have never seen any evidence electric power is being distributed anywhere. Rather strange I'd say.

    Willys - Year ??

    Any guesses as to the year of manufacturer. Old enough to have a fresh air vent but new enough to have wipers. If I was younger I'd love to have it to restore. All it would need is a blade and added weight to push snow.

    John Deere LA 135 Rectifier Needed (pics)

    My Lawn tractor needs a rectifier. Is there a Briggs parts man here that can tell me which rectifier number and possibly charge voltage for my Briggs? After market will be fine being they are all made in the same place and seem to last only a couple of years.:D

    A lost Asset in Auto Transmissions

    Until recently the automatic tranny was useful in conditions such as snow, ice, sand or mud and worked equally well in all of those conditions. To start from a dead stop under those conditions we were able to select 2 on the shift selector, ease down on the accelerator to begin forward motion...

    Quality After Market Safety Switches

    For decades safety switches have been a pain in the butt. Not limited to lawn/garden tractors but in more recent years the big tractors are involved. Wouldn't you be mad as **** if you paid a quarter million for a tractor and in less than 30 days from the dealer it wouldn't crank because of...

    Ten Minute Saw Buck for Kindling

    The Neighbor Kid's 12 ft. Blade

    If I'd known he was going to do his drive I'd taken some before pics. It was a washed / rutted mess but in just a few minutes he had it much better and I'm sure this is the first time he ever used this blade. Unlike a box blade there is almost no learning curve and no resulting speed bumps.

    Winterizing around the Farm/Ranch

    As we prepare for winter weather we usually think to drain garden hoses and/or put them away, check antifreeze levels in vehicles etc. etc., but did you ever think to check the operation of your frost/freeze proof hydrant. They are freeze proof only if they operate as designed.:D There are a...

    Did I Dream it or Read It? (removing mower blades)

    On side discharge decks the popular 2x4 wood block works pretty well on the blade next to the discharge chute to keep the blade from turning while the nut is removed. But on other blades under that same deck that block of wood isn't all that convenient in my opinion. So today I tried what I...

    Tractor Anti-Lock Brakes

    This is the way I see it. Home owners and tractor operators are going to continue to attempt to mow their too steep hills and rolling their tractors until the government mandates more safety devices. If you think safety interlocks are a pain now wait until this one is implemented. It'll make...

    Is this Valve Stem Tubeless?

    Slow leaks on the front tires of a TD75D is causing a guy to want tubes installed. Can we look at this stem and determine without a doubt that he has tubeless tires on his tractor? Being they are on a newer tractor I'd bet yes but would like some opinions other than mine.
