    New Welder

    I hope this is an acceptable topic for a tractor forum. I'm not a welder by profession, but I have needs. Did I say that wrong? I have owned and used a Millermatic 210 MIG welder for more than a decade. Flawless machine and it seems like a month does not go by without using it. I now have...

    Tale of Caution - steering knuckles and water

    * Public Service Announcement * For your benefit, I created this post to describe failure with one of my steering knuckles. This note would apply to all vehicles that use kingpins (vs ball joints) for steering. Kingpin design has been used for 100 years, so its nothing new. Do you have a...

    Broken seat spring - what would you do?

    I have a 15 YO Deere with spring seat. Suddenly one of the four springs inside broke. Now it will not hold up anyone of any weight. See image of two springs. The seat action is like a scissor lift. Because of the design, I would guess that the tension on each spring may be in the...

    JD SCV (remote) is throwing out the hydraulic hose

    I have two JDs that now have the same problem. 2008 and 2012 models with less than 2,000 hours on each. The symptom is that regardless of whether I activate the SCV slowly or quickly, the coupling immediately spits the Pioneer coupling out. I am including a couple of pictures, and labeled...

    JD Rear Coupler Remotes do not release hose

    OK, I ran into a new one yesterday. My JD 6105 has 3 SCV "remotes" out back. I had sets of hoses plugged in, but when I went to separate them, one hose refused to disconnect. The tractor was turned off. I could hand-twist the hose in place, meaning no line pressure. I could push the hose...

    JD w/ Left Hand Reverser - no movement - dash light for transmission

    I have a 2006 JD 5425. Manual shift with a LHR. Is there someone reading this that has experience or diagnostic guidance? One day I used it - all was well - parked it. Next day I went to use it and after starting, I moved the LHR and nothing happened. Then after 10 seconds the dash light...

    Ford NAA Steering Box - non standard?

    Hi. I have searched for an answer, but come up with zero. I hope to get some help. My dad has a 1954 Ford NAA. It has a loader and power steering, even though I understand that NAA did not come with PS from Ford. I think I have identified the loader as a Davis, and in the Colo Springs area I...

    NH Baler Steel Hydraulic Tubing

    I have NH BR750. After a few hydraulic parts failures, I want to try to improve reliability (reduce downtime) now that I am between cuttings. I have noted that the 3/8 inch flex hoses that transition from steel lines to the tailgate hydraulic cylinders are showing age. I want to replace all...

    NH Round Baler Density problem

    I have a New Holland BR750 round baler. Bale density has never been adjusted for 13 years that I have had it, and density seemed good last year. This year, not so good. Bales are soft. Looking at the operators manual and checking the baler, there is what looks like a density hydraulic...

    JD 5425 Sometimes has a slow 3 point

    I have had my JD 5425 for several years. In the beginning (it was a used tractor), all was well. However the 3 point started acting up. Once unwanted behavior started, they continued. Here are some notes but I don't know if they are related. 1) When I use the 'slow' up/down buttons on the...

    JD 6105 rear panel removal seems impossible

    In my 6105, there is an interior panel behind the seat that I need to remove. I am stumped - I cannot remove it. Two lower screws are out and the panel can pull out (tilt up) at the bottom, but the top seems like it could be designed like a barb - push in to catch, but can't pull out. Even...

    Newer JD - Cab air (A/C, Heat) fan does not blow

    I have an issue with a 2012 JD 6105R. This JD design has all of the cab temperature equipment (cold or hot) in the steering pedestal: All of a sudden there is no fan. No matter what I set on the temp controls (heat / cold), there is no fan blower action. No action - as in no sound of a...

    JD SCV - coupler release?

    As I learn more about the SCVs, I come across tips that say I should use the SCV release lever when removing my hydraulic hoses from SCVs. I bought an old International 1086 20 years ago. I had it for perhaps 4 or 5 years before I realized that it had a levers on the side of each SCV, which...

    JD 7130 e-SCV failure. Need rebuild.

    Over the span of a month, all 3 of my e-SCVs (series 300) have failed. The tractor is 10 years old with 1300 hours. Periodically, once or twice a week, I started operating a small pull scraper. I did this for a couple of months. First month was perfect, then failures started happening in the...

    Forestry mulchers: drum or disk?

    I have been contemplating mulching underbrush and small trees with a high flow skid steer. I have been considering using this for hire and during "unhired days", cleaning out the same from 200 wooded acres that I own. With interest, I have watched all sorts of Youtube videos on the topic...

    Looking for LA682 Loader

    Hi. A year ago I bought a Kubota L3710 GST, with very low hours. I would like to add a loader, which seems to be a LA681(older)/LA682(newer). I contacted a local dealer, but it didn't seem that he knew much or wanted to do much research. He told me that generally it might cost $3k for...

    JD 7000 vs 8000 Loader

    Hi. I'm new to this site, and planning to soon being a new JD owner as well. At least with regard to tractors, that is. I have an old IH 1086 @ 130hp with loader, but am planning to update to a late model JD 7130 MFWD. So my question is with regard to loaders. Of course I can go buy a new...
