    MT 125 will not start.

    Found the problem. I took out my handy jumper wire and started to check all the safety switches. It was the neutral switch. I checked the connection yesterday, but I jumped it today. It started right up. I have it jumped for now until I get a new one.

    MT 125 will not start.

    I checked the neutral safety switch connection and rechecked the bypassed seat switch. A ran a wire from positive to the battery terminal E to start it. It started and I moved it out of the mud and into my garage.

    MT 125 will not start.

    My tractor is sitting in some mud right now. If I take a wire and connect it from the battery to the wire on the starter, wouldn’t that bybass all the safety switches and start the tractor. That way I can at least get it on pavement to check the switches.

    MT 125 will not start.

    I was doing a lot of work with my tractor and I shit it off to go eat. When I came back it will not start. I hear the relay clicking, but it will not turn over. I have the seat switch bypassed so it isn’t that. It happens 3 days ago too. I let it sit for a while then I washed it. After that it...

    What did you do on or to your LS Tractor today?

    I bought a total of three UHMW Sheet 3/4" x 4" x48" By Peachtree Woodworking - PW1125 from Amazon. The FEL width is about 2 in longer than the UHMV so there is an inch gap on each side. I bought 1/2 carriage bolts and bored out each hole enough to make the bolt flush with the UHMV. For the rear...

    What did you do on or to your LS Tractor today?

    I dare it to snow in central Virginia this year. I finished adding UHMV strips to my FEL and Rear Blade. I removed the cutting edge on the rear blade so I wouldn’t have to drill any holes in it. I didn’t realize how heavy it was. So I’m already for the snow to fall.

    MT 125 front axle drain bolt

    I had to buy a new m10x1.25x20mm bolt and cut 10mm off of it. I couldn’t find m10x1.25x10 unless I order it through LS and who know how long it would take to come in. I checked the other drain bolt and it was loose, but didn’t work it’s way out. Ended up adding more fluid.

    What did you do on or to your LS Tractor today?

    I made a snow blade for my FEL. Bought some UHMV poly from Amazon. They were supposed to be 48in long but it was 47 and 3/4. They were 3/4in thick. I bolted it down by using a Forstner bit and a 1/2 drill bit. I also beveled the edge. I’m making one for my grader blade too. All this means is...

    MT 125 front axle drain bolt

    So I was working in by backyard leveling some dirt and I started to smell smell something nasty. With 20 years of experience as a Army mechanic, that smell was very familiar. I drove the tractor on to my concrete slab and and immediately looked at my front axle. My right tire was soaked with...

    What did you do on or to your LS Tractor today?

    Just tested them in the darkness. First with just front headlights, then with LED bar. Did the same for the rear. Front may need a little adjustment. .

    What did you do on or to your LS Tractor today?

    I added LED lighting to my ROP bar. Since my MT125 is only a year old, I didn’t want to do any drilling or wire splicing. I am currently using the 12v power plug(cigarette lighter) as my power source. I added a switch in a project box mounted to my Caution sign bracket. I used u-bolts and a one...

    Snow FEL Blade Attachment for Snow Removal

    If anyone buys the 5 Ft blade from Tractor supply, I would suggest also buying a new top link that is slightly longer than the one that comes with the tractor. There is literally no tool for adjustments.

    LED Bar Light Installation.

    I bought a NiLight LED set and started the install. I really don’t want to run a wire all the way to the battery. I believe the MT125 has an option of a work light. So that means there should be a 12 Volt wire somewhere in the back. Does any one know where it is located? I’m trying to do this...

    Snow FEL Blade Attachment for Snow Removal

    I installed the County Line 5ft grader blade today. I was a little concerned that the blade would not lift high enough, but it raises 15in from the ground. Played around the yard a little to see how well it handles. Messes a lot of yard up, but I will have fun fixing it. What is there out there...

    Snow FEL Blade Attachment for Snow Removal

    I went and purchased a 5 Ft County Line Grader Blade. It’s been one year since I bought my MT125 and I thought the blade will be a good birthday gift.

    What did you do on or to your LS Tractor today?

    Snow FEL Blade Attachment for Snow Removal

    Someone else told me to use a rear grader blade. I don’t have one, but I am looking to purchase one. Tractor supply has a 5 ft blade that could work, but they recommend the 4 ft one. I would rather use a 5 ft one. Any recommendations. It’s for my MT125

    Snow FEL Blade Attachment for Snow Removal

    Is there a non metal attachment that I can mount to my FEL for snow removal. I don’t get that much snow, so I can’t justify a snow blower. I don’t want to mark up my concrete slab and asphalt driveway with the metal bucket blade. It would mount to my MT125 FEL.

    MT 125 Would not start

    If you ever come across your MT125 engine will not turn over and you know your battery is good. Check your wiring at your starter. There is a wire that attaches to the starter that is not held on by a bolt or nut. It just slips on. I ran over some small tree limbs and one of them must have...

    Is there any adjustment for the FEL joy stick on the MT125?

    I took the rubber boot off the valve and tightened the two nuts. I’m not sure if it’s the same problem. On my post about the FEL valve fix I posted two links to YouTube where I have a video posted of the problem

Should I remove the FEL and BH...

    What did you do on or to your LS Tractor today?

    I have to laugh because I got stuck twice already but was too embarrassed to post pictures. Since I have a front end loader and a backhoe I was able to use them to lift my front and rear wheels out of the mud and then I used 4x6s and placed them under the wheels. I lowered the wheels on to the...

I hope this area of Virginia will dry...
