    Backup camera with its own access point

    Well the verdict is in, the GoPro is pretty much useless for what I'm trying to do. The problem is that the trailers I'm trying to backup up block the wifi signal from the GoPro and I lose my connection. It works great if I backup something short like the manure spreader, but I don't need a...

    Expanding foam that birds can't eat

    Thanks, if I end up with any exposed foam I'll try that. I'm trying to use sheet metal, hardware cloth and some caulking. Hopefully I don't have to use any foam.

    Expanding foam that birds can't eat

    After snooping around up there and taking down some of the old nests, I've decided to take off the existing flashing so I can get to this properly. I'm going to make some aluminum flashing that will serve to block the blowing rain and block access for the birds. If they can get through sheet...

    Expanding foam that birds can't eat

    That's a thought, I could make a tube out of hardware cloth and shove it in the space, then spray the foam in the hardware cloth.

    Expanding foam that birds can't eat

    3M has a product like that, I went to their website and it said it wouldn't work on birds. Hard to believe it will stop rodents but not a bird, maybe it's got some kind of chemical in it that birds ignore.

    Expanding foam that birds can't eat

    I've got a spot where rain blows in along a lean to roof on my barn that I've tried closing with expanding foam, but the birds like that spot and/or the foam because they keep pecking it away. Is there any kind of foam that hardens enough that birds can't peck it? It's a prorib style roof and...

    Backup camera with its own access point

    GoPro has an app for apple and android. The camera is a wifi access point, the app on the phone connects to that wifi and is used to control/view the camera. GoPros don't have night vision, something that backup cameras generally have. But I don't need it at night so that shouldn't be a problem.

    Backup camera with its own access point

    Tested the GoPro, I think it will work fine. Even on the wide angle setting it's not a super wide field of view but it will be good enough, and the price is right. My wife always uses it to record video to an SD card, never thought about using it with my phone. I ordered a magnetic swivel base...

    Backup camera with its own access point

    That's a good thought. My wife uses a gopro on her horse, I'll have to see what the field of view is. They're pretty indestructible, that would be good.

    Backup camera with its own access point

    I did find this one with it's own access point at etrailer.com while I was looking for a portable camera. A decent one without an access point is about $100 and the one from etrailer is $178. I like etrailer stuff, it's always good quality, might get that one.

    Backup camera with its own access point

    I need a backup camera to use in an area with no power or wifi. So I'm looking for a camera that comes with its own access point that I can connect to with my phone to use when I backup a trailer. It would be similar in concept to my inspection camera which has its own access point connected to...

    leaky hydraulic pump - can I replace front seal

    If you're near a hydraulic place and have a trailer it might be worth taking the machine over there and see if they can give you any info. The shop I go to will give free estimates if you bring the machine over and they don't have to take anything apart. They'll also send a service truck for a...

    Tilt cylinder on Top and Tilt leaking down with use

    Mine are Prince valves from Surplus Center and they leaked from the day i bought them. I'm told more expensive valves don't leak, but don't know which brands.

    Half the hoses, it's only needed on the hose that's pressurized by the weight of the implement. Here's mine:

    Tilt cylinder on Top and Tilt leaking down with use

    My valves leaked down so I added this ball valve right at the valve so I can easily turn it on and off, got it at the local hydraulics place for about $5. I open it when I need to use the valve, close it when I'm mowing or using an implement.

    Groundsmaster 52 runs 10 minutes, then dies

    It would help to get more diagnostic info. Can you attach a voltmeter to the 12v input to the coil and keep it on your lap while you're driving. That would tell you the next time it starts to die whether you have a constant 12v to the coil. The problem with electronic issues is they are...

    Chalk line anchor pin, where can I buy this

    I've had an anchor pin for my chalk line for so many years I don't know where I got it. There's no name on it and I can't find anything like it, anyone happen to know where I can buy one? There are anchor pins online, but none have a safety cover for the pin that I can find.

    Kubota B3200 Leaking Rear Remote

    The spool is probably the most precisely machined component on your tractor, so watch a bunch of YouTube before you take it out. A detent valve has the added challenge of a bunch of tiny steel balls and a spring that are going to fall on the floor when you pull the spool out. It also looks like...

    Identify Hydraulic Fitting Type

    I was curious, never heard of WEO. Went and looked at WEO design and installation instructions. The stop clip looks different on yours, but as the instructions below indicate if you pull the clip out and push the fitting in, it should then be released to come out. It's designed to rotate...

    Terramite tss38 sweeper

    They were bought by Conecteq and renamed TerraQuip. I found 800-428-3772 for Terraquip and (316) 943-8889 for Coneqtec. TerraQuip seems like a shell company, you'll probably have to call Coneqtec to get anywhere. The company now targets the rental market, so you could also try calling a rental...

    Tires for 2016 Kubota BX25D

    I had a few slow leakers and finally tried TireJect, worked on all tires so far. Easy to clean up and works with tire pressure sensors.

    Lucas X-tra heavy duty grease sold out?

    I remember when that happened, didn't connect what kind of facility it was at the time. I'm pretty sure that's the fire we could smell even though it's a good hour's drive from us. Around here the grease shelves cycle between full and empty, when I see some on the shelf I buy 6 tubes instead of...

    After market seal kits for Kubota cylinders?

    Best if you post them here, give other folks a chance too. Someday if I finish the 10 high priority projects my wife has me working on at the same time I'll take a shot at 3D printing.

    face mask for mowing tired of the dust?

    The thing that helps the most if I'm on my ztr is to drive as fast as possible so the dust is always behind me. ;)

    After market seal kits for Kubota cylinders?

    It's common to not change those really stiff seals because they're so hard to work with and they generally aren't the one leaking. But if you are able to fabricate a jig, that improves the quality of the repair. I've been tempted so many times to try my hand at 3D printing, if I keep reading...

    NH TC35D Hydraulic Fluid blowing through (vent?) hose under engine

    It sounds like your crankcase breather is the thing blowing out oil. If the tractor isn't old it could be that the engine oil is over full. If the engine is high hours it could be blowby. I'm not familiar with that tractor, there is a new holland forum here so you'd probably get much more help...

    tank sprayer suggestions?

    I have a 25gal tank, I put a board across the FEL arms and put the tank there so it's right in front of me. That allows me to have enough hose to spot spray on either side from the seat without adding any hose. I put a marine battery in the bucket to power the pump, it's a pain to attach it to...

    face mask for mowing tired of the dust?

    I use the same blue masks that are everywhere since covid. I wear it to move hay bales and when I mow, it's adequate for me. I wear the kind of mask you're talking about when I work in the wood shop, but I find it less comfortable because it fits tighter, especially if you mow for hours.

    After market seal kits for Kubota cylinders?

    You can either measure it yourself or take it to a hydraulic shop and they'll have aftermarket seals. There was just this thread on seal prices for a small power steering cylinder. Seal prices seem to be going through the roof.

    ZTR wheel motor leak. How do the bolts seal

    I don't think there is any fluid pressure in the area where the bolts are. Each of the plates (commutator, etc) has a machined finish that seals the high pressure. Seal #3 in your diagram is the low pressure seal against fluid getting into the area where the bolts are. Seal #4 I think is only to...

    Valve lash adjustment?

    If you look at this post I included the videos I made when I timed my engine, it's probably very similar. That nut is 23mm.

    Pulled fitting

    Labor will be the expensive part, if you do it yourself it will be cheap. You could weld a new bung right on top of the one that's there. You could drill and tap for next larger size thread. If you have to pay someone to do this you might be better off buying a new cylinder. Hard to tell what...

    Broken hydraulic Cylinder Case

    He said he bought a new cover, so all the things related to the broken rockshaft will be new. The only thing being considered for repair is the 2 broken bolt flanges.

    Broken hydraulic Cylinder Case

    Brazing works well for joining 2 different metals. Since you already know how to tig it would be easy to do, the standard filler is silicon bronze which will work on almost everything. Use DC and lower current so you just melt the filler. For cast iron you can use AC and aluminum bronze filler...

    Broken hydraulic Cylinder Case

    It's just like oxy acetylene brazing but you don't need flux because you have a shielding gas. It doesn't melt the base metal, just the filler, so it can be done with less heat transfer into the base metal. It uses different filler, it's much cleaner and easier than using oxy.

    Backhoe with no power

    The pump has the words "In" and "Out" written on the casting. So as @ptsg says, switch the hoses and it should work.

    Broken hydraulic Cylinder Case

    Wow man, that is quite a break. If you have the small pieces of the casting that complete those bolt holes I think they could be welded back together since that casting probably hasn't absorbed any oil and it's got enough mass to be able to sink the heat from welding. Take it to someone who does...

    Motion activated switch for barn fan

    Installation complete, here's the before with just the normal outlet. And by popular demand includes me in my horse costume that looks so realistic you'd hardly know it's me: And after the install, with the sensor and sensor controlled outlet: Total cost about $40, thanks again for the...

    Motion activated switch for barn fan

    I bought this occupancy sensor for $30 at Menards and tested it in the garage wearing my horse costume. Seems to do the job so I'll wire it up in the next few days in the barn.

    Motion activated switch for barn fan

    Thanks, didn't know what they were called. That looks like it is exactly what I want. Barn is dry but pretty dusty, worth a try though. We have to brush the lights off with a dust mop, we can do the sensor at the same time.

    Motion activated switch for barn fan

    I can do a relay, was hoping for a simpler solution. 500W seemed surprisingly low power to me, but I guess they're intended for lights. The purpose of the fans is for flies and gnats. The barn is not really that hot, they stand in front of the fans to keep the flies off. Some horses are...

    Motion activated switch for barn fan

    Our horses only stand in front of their barn fans part of the day, the rest of the time the fans just use power doing nothing. Is there any kind of motion detector I can use that would stay on as long as it detects motion, like the swishing of the horses tail or moving their head? They don't...

    Kubota L3710 Steering Seal Fix?

    Be interesting to know the breakdown of labor and parts. I would guess a small cylinder like that is an hour labor, which is probably $100ish. Hard to imagine non OEM seals being more than $25. I've never had a little cylinder like that apart, I wonder if there's something that makes them harder...

    Kubota grease vs Briggs and Stratton grease

    If it's an application like on a front loader that's open to water, sunlight, grit, mud, manure, etc, it's hard to imagine anything short of an explosion when you mix the two greases doing any more harm than what happens during every day use. If it's a sealed application like an axle bearing or...

    Kubota L3710 Steering Seal Fix?

    If Kubota published the explanations for why things are the way they are, the book would be bigger than the shop manual.

    Kubota L3710 Steering Seal Fix?

    I hear you, i just rebuilt my loader cylinders and used Kubota seals because they were so close in price to aftermarket seals. And yet seals for this tiny steering cylinder seem really expensive. Someone should write a book on how parts are priced.

    Kubota L3710 Steering Seal Fix?

    No, take it to any decent hydraulic shop and they'll be able to get the parts. You might want to let the shop do the rebuild, or at least take it to them after you do the rebuild and have them pressure test it. With all the labor involved getting it out, you don't want to put the thing back in...
