    Brokedown in a bad spot

    Well, just a story. So the wife took the tractor out into the back 40 and a line ruptured. Usually not a big deal, I have some spares that I can plug in to limp back home. Not so lucky this time. It wasn't that I didn't have the hose, it was I could not find the break. On top of it I have...

    Fuel Line size for the 1850

    Hey Team, Deutz sprung a leak. This will be my second time running fuel lines so no big deal, except I completely forgot what size the fuel line is. It is something weird, like 3mm VW line. Anyone point me in the right direction?

    And finally Tram problems

    So this weekend (Friday) and today I rebuilt all my hydraulic cylinders, and changed all the filters, and did all that maintenance you are supposed to do... Well, I had the filter issue (air getting in) and now my tram takes a moment to engage moving forward. Jumps right in when I tram in...

    Filter Gasket F*up.

    So thought i would share this mess up with you. First time I have done this. And what is worse is that it was hidden, and if I hadn't heard the tram making a bit of a noise I would never have looked or seen it. The squeeze out was on the backside of the filter housing and just tucked up so...

    Elongated Holes

    So a few weeks ago I posted about how my steering cylinders where flopping around... I wanted to show you the elongated holes. This is something that my 1850 suffers from in a variety of places. I don't think that this is the best design, but I get why they do it. I will order new ears, or...

    Why do tractors never break down in the shop

    So, mowing, nose down at about 35 degrees and a foot from the 90 degree, 10ft drop off. And the whole tractor just dies. Nothing, no juice, nothing... Painful walk up to the shop, grab all the tools I can think I might need and back down I go.. After digging for a while I find this little...

    Leak in my lift tilt dump controller

    So found a few drops of oil today on the toe of my boot. It looks to be coming from the bottom of my lift control and not from the hose connectors on the back side. Also my lift capabilities are a bit less than normal and I have noticed occasional quick decent in the lift circuit. Any advice...

    More proof I am an idiot

    Well, it was completely stupid. Completely... I was putting gravel on the road, was backing up, looking over my shoulder going "fast" and out of the corner of my eye I see the wire loose on my lightbar. Well, like a woman in a diamond store I glommed onto that shiny thing and promptly drove...

    Anyone with a PT own a chain trencher attachment

    Gotta ask, about to make either a brilliant or stupid decision. Anyone own a trencher ? Got a few questions like how well does it work? You drive backwards? Does that suck or cause you are going so slow you can keep up with the line you want?

    Proper use of air bags on pickup truck

    I inherited a 99 Dodge Ram 2500 - 4 door, 8ft bed diesel. Its a monster, my FIL had chipped it, changed the exhaust, a bunch of performance upgrades. He used it to haul around a bed camper that was way too big for the truck in my opinion. Anyway, it is now mine (100K miles on it btw). It has...

    Kinda chapped at Milwaukee Tools

    So I have a nice Milwaukee impact driver. A fuel 18v. It died. I think the trigger stopped working. A simple switch in my mind. Went to the Milwaukee repair store. Walked in. Guy looked up from the counter and said. “Don’t bother. The switch costs more than a new gun”. Turns out that...

    Building a "She" Shed

    So I got home late September, left a couple of weeks later and the Movie I was to start folded due to the director hating the script. So home I went, and the wife said "You are not sitting around waiting for your shop to get built, you are helping build mine". Helping generally means providing...

    Has anyone made a skid steer to PT Adapter?

    I need a trencher for a week. I can buy one for around 2K for a bobcat (same specs) and just weld on a plate. But thinking about renting instead. It would open me up to a few other occasional use items.... Thoughs?

    How long can mixed herbicides last

    So I am spraying crossbow on our pile of noxious blackberries. I mixed up 25 gallons and had a breakdown. In the 24 hours waiting for the part the weather has changed. I now have rain for the rest of the week so this mix will sit for 6 days probably. Thoughts?

    How to kill a maple stump?

    At some point our property was logged leaving behind half a dozen big leaf maple stumps. They are huge. One may be 7 feet I diameter. When maples get cut they sprout new growth. They look overly bushy. Tried roundup with little success. Anyone have other suggestions?

    Grappling up the awkard

    Knocked down a few cedars this week for a proposed shop on the property. Thought it was an intersting pic, wife was moving the cedar logs around. Long, close to lift capacity of the PT. but awkard as all heck. 8 Wheels really helps with these types of loads.

    BW asked about the locking arm modification. There are some amazing machinists here and what I have to show I am not proud of but it works. I took some flat stock, cut it into a pattern, welded it together, added a bolt at the top to hold the knob and drilled a couple of holes and here is my...

    Deutz Engine cooling Mod

    BW asked me about this, so I thought I would repost this. I do not believe that the vent on the 1011F or 2011F series is adequate. Seems to me that it is restrictive. So what I did is I raised the vent by a couple of inches. You need to be careful and measure before you do this so you don't...
