    New 4052m Hydraulic temp light.

    As long as you have dealer documentation, then I'd also just keep running it. But let the dealer know that you expect a computer fix to be forthcoming soon w/o paying for transporting to the dealer.

    Something I don't understand about applications of below 40hp tractors

    Couldn't be further from the truth. Only if you qualify the variables/specs on those conditions that might make that statement true.

    John Deere 770 diesel/oil issue

    Welcome to TBN Hard for me to sort out what you are referencing. What I interpret is you are adding to your oil in the engine, and maybe it is coming from the coolant. Or maybe diesel fuel getting in the engine oil. Others may have it sorted out.

    Mystery solved with my JD 425, “IGNITOR” ?

    Been there, done that. And the names used in different places led me down the wrong rabbit hole. Told a friend (when he asked if I'd replaced the ignitor) that I did.. but it was the ignition module I'd changed. When he then stopped by to help, his first question was "I thought you said you...

    JD 990 power beyond no longer available

    We'd like to hear more about y our JD 990. What you use it for and what you are going to add to need power beyond. Maybe a back hoe? or a grapple to the FEL? Use my added 3rd SCV to activate the hyd. top arm, and then switch connections to run a Thumb on the forks. JD parts shows a kit...

    224ws square baler

    Brings back memories from a long time back, used a JD wire tie baler in the middle fifty's. Mostly used twine and at 14 ran a baler doing custom-work lined up by the farmer I worked for when a kid. Pulled by a JD G, baler was PTO driven. Uncle at that time had an old wire-tie baler that two men...

    John Deere 3520 and 300CX Lift Problem - Help Needed

    Puzzling dilemma First I would separate the hyd. lines disconnects and reconnect them. Sometimes they don't get seated well at the connectors. Next, I would next pull the pin at the joint (red line) and isolate the quick attachment completely. Then see if the cylinders move okay. That will...

    Can all tractors flip over easy?

    The 8N Ford is probably one of the least likely to flip backwards if you don't pull above the axle line. If using 3ph attachments like a moldboard plow, then little to no worry. Also the 8N Fords are quite stable on slopes so will not lay over easily. Stance of the wheels are important. The...

    JD 4600/460 loader - - Ideas for small on-board Chainsaw Storage?

    Two side pieces of 3/8 or 1/2" plywood separated by a strip of 1/2" plywood sandwiched/glued in between. Straps at diagonal on one side and straight on the other side with bolts to clamp. Think this pic shows both sides. Straps from what found laying around.

    JD 5055 quick hitch

    No, but several like them. I went with the iMatch from Deere. Along with the hyd. top arm, the system can't be beat. IMO

    JD 1050 - LABOR COST for cleaning and reinstalling injectors?

    If you know how to replace the injectors, then do it. But if you don't, then I myself would not, nor recommend to you, to do them. What was the reason/problem that the injector pump was replaced ?? Hopefully the dealer isn't just replacing parts and hoping to solve the problem. i.e. the...

    JD 4600/460 loader - - Ideas for small on-board Chainsaw Storage?

    Made two scabbards for my 4300. For what it is worth, find them very handy and make a habit of not leaving the chainsaws on the ground when the tractor is moving. And when the snow plow is on, the FEL is off. Have an 18" and 20" bar Stihl saw. No drilling in the ROPS, just clamped on the ROPS

    New (to me) 4100

    In your final spray coat, be sure to use John Deere paint, not paint that says it is John Deere color. Such paint turns blue (bluish) after a year or so. Nice work on making this look new again. Look forward to pictures as you progress.

    Tires Removing loaded tires

    Use the hoe to lift the tractor up, put blocks under it, then use the hoe to remove the tire (if the hoe isn't on the same tractor). On my 4300, I have industrial R4's so just jack up the tractor and keep the tire upright. They are liquid filled and heavy but not impossible to move around...

    cutting on a steep hill - pond at the bottom

    I mow the steep slopes with my 425 and 455 by sitting on the edge of the seat, but both have AWS. Previous 425 without AWS just would not work as well and would not stick to the slope. AWS holds much, much better on slopes and can go on a slope that the tires will not slip down the slope. At...

    LA125 Overhaul

    I wouldn't use a file. I'd put some wet/dry sandpaper placed on a glass plate. And use light oil or water with 220 grit paper. Something like this video shows.

    5425 won't start - nothing

    Think that is true. Plug a 12v light bulb into the fuse slot. Then look for the short. When you find/fix it, the light bulb will go out and then should be safe to put a fuse back in the fuse slot.

    Looking to buy my first tractor

    Best make friends with your nearest tractor dealer and work with them. One that is close enough to work on your tractor or be available for parts. Regardless of the brand name, this should be your first priority. Once you buy and start using the tractor, you will likely find need for different...

    Can a propane tank be repurposed?

    Not sure how it would be done, but have seen other propane tanks used for different purposes. Experiment and set one up at a "safe" distance with a long pressure hose and see if your shop compressor can cause it to burst. I doubt you can burst it, but would be worth knowing that for sure.
