    Quick Fix for a Broken Hydraulic Hose?

    Cap it at the tractor or remove busted hose and make a loop with other hose back to the tractor if possible. Been there, the gotta keep moving thing... I kept moving right to town with hose in tow to have a replacement made, I have found that to be the best way.... But then there is days like...

    Culti-weeder results....

    FINALLY got to really work with the culti-weeder today. First run looked like you drug a box blade over the hard clay I have for dirt. So, back to the shop and fab'd up two long and skinny teeth and welded them on the blade of the culti-weeder in hopes of better ground penitration. That was...

    Tiller kick-stand....

I was tilling up-hill, not super steep but I noticed the LS was seeming to loose traction, stupid R-4's I thought... the loss of traction compared to R-1 I have noticed the...

    JD 450C Dozer?

    Exactly 4570. More done quicker, less time on job. Be it skidding logs, building roads, moving dirt or clearing ground. When I was looking for a dozer, 20,000 lbs was my minimum for what I needed and wanted to do. I work for a saw mill now. I run there D-7 dozer bought new in '75 till 3...

    JD 450C Dozer?

    Well, it sounds good..... Here is my take on dozers of that size. In this part of the state I live in we had one of the most sales of JD dozers nationally at the local Deere dealer back mid 70's early 80's. The logging was booming and the woods was full of the little JD crawlers doing...

    3 point wont lift

    Check the hydraulic outlet Control levers. I had the same thing happen and I found that I had bumped the non-detent lever forward and it killed the three point function. I also had adjusted my flow valve and had the same problem, it does not take much of a turn on the knob to change or lock...

    What DON'T You Like About Your New LS

    At 210 hours, like my XR3140H quite well. The steering is slow, as in ya half to turn the steering wheel twice as much compared to my 790 to make turn. And the warning beeper for the parking break is completely obnoxious, or was;) That's about it so far

    New pump and Spayer calibration

    Yes there is a filter in the system, It is at the pump intake. Its a simple build, there is no pressure gauge or anything fancy. I have 3 different booms I use with it. A 3 nozzle 'boom less' thing for when the trees are crowding into the rows but weeds still need controlled, a four foot boom...

    New pump and Spayer calibration

    The shurflow pump on my diy sprayer give it up on me earlier when I was getting everything ready to spray for weeds... I'm thinking that little 3.3gpm 'gallons per minute' pump lasted me at least twenty years, not bad. I invested in a everflo 5.5gpm pump this time. Almost double output the...

    3039H hydraulic problem

    Not sure what is going on with that. Have you cheked the oil level in the transmission to see if its at the correct level? Sounds like its low or out of hyd. Fluid or just is not getting enough. Might pay to invest in some sort of magnetic heater to place on the bottom of the transmission...

    Seafoam for real?

    Sea foam user here. With today's low quality gas even the non-ethenol stuff, all of my gas cans get sea foam added to them at fuel up. That way all the small engine implements I use get it. Says on the can keeps fuel fresh for two years, I have an old husky 288 chain saw with sea foam in the...

    Was able to work the dirt today....

    I had doubts of availability. But the deere dealer I deal with had everything on hand but the 'shaft' or the wheel hub. The price was the real surprize for me.... well under what I expected.

    Worked the dirt, planted trees

    These spruce are for ball and burlap, dug by a spade once they get 6 foot and up. We have used the water retaining crystal s that turn to water jelly. Even used a root inoculate stuff with water jelly crystals. Speed is key, well consistent steady speed for nice even rows.... So is a good...

    Worked the dirt, planted trees

    The spacing is 8 foot by 8 foot Tcowner. A tree every 8 foot. Would prefer 10 foot just don't have the room. IndyJay, we plant at .7 mph. Seems slow but that's light speed compared to hand p!anting so there is not much dust. I have modified the planter with an old office chair and an umbrella...

    Worked the dirt, planted trees

    Put the LS to work today and my ol' whitfield transplanter. With a crew of 3 my better half, a nephew and the crank of a tractor operator 'me' we got 900 spruce seedlings in the ground. Averaged about 133 trees an hour. We planted by hand for the first 6 years. It would take us 3 days to plant...

    Was able to work the dirt today....

    The price was a surprise. The drive gears for both sides was 800 something range iirc. My better half tilled the two cultivated acres today in the pic posted earlier to ready the field for planting. She managed to till the whole thing without a hitch or a tire falling off:).

    LS SAYS A REGEN EVERY 2 HOURS IS NORMAL

    I would do what bobrown14 says, plus a new fuel filter and new air filters. Or did the dealer do this already? Have you noticed if the engine uses any oil doing all the regens? To me, a regen every two hours its telling you something is not right, be it emissions garbage or engine, fuel... 50...

    Thanks fellas(y) Nothing like the smell of fresh turned dirt There is always something to see around here... Sun rises and sun sets, tires falling off tractor axles, non-endangered grizzly bears in the tree farm. Not to mention occasional combat with skunks.

    Was able to work the dirt today....

    This 790 made it 15 years. I was careful but used the heck out of it being it was my only tractor... lucky I guess. Used full synthetic gear oil from the first change also, but the gears still lost teeth.

    Going to plan spruce tree seedlings in this field Iman. This field has fairly good exposure so it is mostly workable. It does have a deep draw on the south that still has prolly a foot of snow, that will be a while yet oosik.

    Was able to do some cultivating today. Weather was stellar, soil is getting workable on the flats but still pretty soft in the draws. The 790 was pulling threw everything like a hot knife threw butter just a little tire spin threw the mucky draws. Then something happened.... It was my bad, I...

    LS MT352 filter kit?

    My local Napa was able to cross all filters except the engine oil with wix filters. The engine oil filter must have a manufacture 'hold' on specs. The XR3140 takes the same air inner and outer as my 790, both of the same Donaldson housing and numbers. Believe it or not, Deere wanted less than...

    Free LS Tractor Cooler - Nice!

    The more swag a brand has, the more that brand seems to cost.... Just look at Kubota, New Holland, deere... All shwagg heavy, deere being in the lead for that is my guess, and deere reflects the most you would prolly pay pound for pound of tractor. I bought a 790 Deere brand new 15 years ago...

    Do you take it to the dealer for maintenance or do it yourself.

    My LS has an LS engine... I'm not by the tractor to read the engine tag. I do not remember reading Mitsubishi anywhere on anything. The 300 model loader on my 790 has been 100% good. Zero breaks, cracks or anything of the sorts, and I USED the thing. I had the relief set so I could lift 1000lb...

    Do you take it to the dealer for maintenance or do it yourself.

    Do all my maintenace myself. Lube, oil changes, minor or major repairs. I have a real paper jd factory service manual for my 790, a flash drive with the service manual for the LS... Wish it was a real life physical paper manual though.
