    I don't understand something.

    My hour meter is cable operated. The faster the engine spins the faster it turns the cable. At idle speed it takes twice as long to = 1 hour on the meter. My previous tractor (JD 850 worked the same way)

    I don't understand something.

    Exactly. When I first got my tractor I had a lot of projects I wanted to get done. The year we built our house I put over 200 hours on that year (building a driveway and digging all the utilities Etc.) For years I used the tractor to mow the lawn also, I now have 2 zero turns that do the lawn...

    How hot is too hot?

    I'm guessing the 2 dots represent normal operating temperature. Your running a little high on temp, but not to bad. Cleaning the radiator fins very well might help.

    Years ago I owned a JD 850 (25 HP, 22 PTO HP) that had a 72" belly mower. Ran that mower just fine Go for at least a 60" rear finish mower IMO

    Buying backhoe for CK2610 vs Renting Mini Excavator

    A mini x isn't the right tool for the job either IMO. Are you loading into something to move the dirt ? A mini isn't going to have the reach you need for a 60x30 pond. (unless you want move the same dirt multiple times to get it needs to be)

    ATV Tubeless Tire Repair

    Exactly. Tubeless tire slips a little on the rim = not really an issue, valve stem is on the rim. Tube tire slips on the rim and the tube slips with it ripping the valve stem from the tube. It is a possibility at 4 psi.

    Gravely Pro turn ?

    You have a suspension seat. First thing I would do is check your tire pressure (to high will make for a rougher ride) I run my zero turn tires at 8 or 9 PSI to help the ride.

    Comparison The Bitterness of Poor Quality Remains Long After the Sweetness of Low Price is Forgotten

    My previous tractor was a Deere (JD 850). I had it for years. It was a reliable machine. When upgrading to a new tractor in 2001 I looked a Deere ( the 4300 and 4400, nice unit. I also looked at the 790 but I didn't like anything about it) . Also the Kubota 3010 and 3410, also nice units. I...

    Ferris ISX800

    I have a Snapper Pro s200xt with the Vanguard 37 HP EFI (with oil guard) and 72" deck. It's basically the same as a Ferris IS3200 but without the suspension. My Snapper Pro does have a very cushy suspension seat.

    What is draft control

    Branson is made by Kukje (TYM bought Kukje a while back), but they are different tractors so far. I've looked at TYM and Branson, my opinion I think the Branson is a nicer/heavier built machine
