    Mower options for 1430

    If it where me I would look around for a mower head from a golf course mower. Those can be had at a good price and for a couple hundred you could have someone adapt it.

    Those valve coils do pull a lot of juice.

    Mower options for 1430

    IMO pts mower is mediocre. The brush mower is better. If you want a good grass mowing buy a dedicated mower.

    PT-425 PTO Not Starting

    My initial thought is you did not have the connectors for the mower in tight. If you flip the switch and the engine dies your valve is working correctly.

    About the same price as a gas replacement.

    PT-425 Aux circuit QCs

    When I store a utility I connect the hoses together to keep them clean. If you want some fun do that in December then try disconnecting in the hot July sun.

    Wanted - PT-425 or PT-1430 in good condition

    Go big. No replacement for displacement. These machines are super bendy so getting bigger isn’t an issue in my opinion.

    Brokedown in a bad spot

    Having ruptured so many hoses I have a trick. I have the master chart, and if it is obvious I go get a hose made. If not I have a selection of overly long hoses for temporary use. Basically what I do is I disconnect the broken hose, generally on the tank side. I attach the new hose with a...

    Bolt on blade for buckets

    So my bucket teeth are welded onto a bar that bolts into the bucket. I am can get you pictures, but that bar that the teeth are welded to ads a lot of support to the lip of the bucket.

    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...

    PT-422 Electric Conversion.......Done!

    Koensig just showed an amazing motor they just designed. Small and super powerful.

    First issue with 1430, weak drive power.

    So what are the symptoms of air in the system? Given how cursed I am I would have huge leaks and I have none that I know of.

    First issue with 1430, weak drive power.

    Oil filters as tight as you can get it by hand. Do not use a wrench to tighten. All gasketed filters should be 3/4 turn after gasket contact. If you are leaking you may have another issue. Too high pressure or a warped oil pump plate.

    PT diesel for sale

    Pumps. Hoses. Dated machine. Fun project but not cheap and end results probably not worth it.

    What did you do with your Power Trac today?

    No pictures but I am using my York rake on my mile long gravel driveway to remove snow and ice. It’s less destructive than a blade and digs down and breaks up the ice.

    Charging valve / hydraulic accumulator

    On my 1850 we have both automatic and hand pump for the brakes in case you can’t get the engine started and need to move. It’s a pita and I had to do it a couple of times (hand pump) but it can be done.

    PT-425 Cement Mixer capacity

    As for pt I hear they are doing great considering. That said they are faced with a major redesign loosing the diesels they had so I am sure energy has shifted until they get those new machines online.

    PT-425 Cement Mixer capacity

    I doubt the barrel is made in the USA. Importing is a pita . That said I believe pt works on an assembly line model. They make 50 of x then 50 of y so they do run out.

    PT1850 Burst Hose Replacement

    Just wanted to reitterate, if you have a cutlist you can premake your hoses, and use the old hose to pull the new hose through. Works way better than fishtape. I have a collection of male to male connectors just for this purpose.

    PT1850 Burst Hose Replacement

    I have ruptured this hose twice. What I did was a bought a 3:4” 90 that I put on the wheel motor. Then I had the hoses made straight. It’s a bit tight but it works. I use a male to male connector to join the two hoses. I use the old hose to pull the new hose through. Also on the sharp edges I...

    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?

    Marketing: Power Trac vs Ventrac

    Happy to be part of the team that convinces you on the tsm. I have an 1850 and love it. Where are you located? Antonio’s were our first choice but lift capacity and the crazy price killed the deal. But they are super nice.

    Money where my mouth is.

    Just be prepared that the machine won’t be perfect. Pt has a tendency to ship with a loose hose or bolt. Otherwise it’s going to rock.

    Money where my mouth is.

    Jeez, I was going to add notes but after reading everyone hit the high notes. Get lots of adapter plates (or make your own like I did, they are easy to make). Get a pickle fork. don't buy the 4 in 1 but do buy a grapple. Mower is brush only, never tried the fine cut cut but very tempted...

    45 degrees is steep

    I have a few spots on my property that get near 40 degrees (running an 1850). A few notes. I never run that steep without a run out at the bottom of the hill. Meaning I don’t mow riverbanks cause I can’t swim. Second is you really have to set up your 1850 to go beyond 35 degrees. The right tire...

    Who manufactures the oil cooler on the PT1850
