    FMC sidewinder

    Does anybody remember a bush hog called a sidewinder made by I believe FMC. If I remember correctly it had a tire in the pto linkage to the gearbox. In my area the power companies used to use them. I think the tire took the banging strain off the pto shaft to the tractor as you hit stuff. Does...

    LS and others service??

    I see LS and many other tractors for sale these days at powers sports places that sell boats and four wheelers etc. Often these places don't look to have space to work on equipment and probably can't have mechanics trained in all these brands and types of equipment. How does service work in...

    Hustler flip up

    Saw the Hustler flip up today and it looks like a good idea. Anyone know of any downsides like deck flexing too much or any kind of weakening of the machine as a result of this option? I am feeling my age more every day and this looks like it would make cleaning and proper maintenance a lot easier.

    Thought I would entertain you with my stupidity. I lent my brother a little skid steer years ago (JD375) when I first bought it. For a couple years he used it around his house. I know- guess I didn't really need it if I didn't even use it myself right away. It got where it might cost a little to...

    LS vs NH

    There seems to be a relationship between NH and LS but I am not clear what it is. I see people here note that some NH tractors are built by LS. OR some parts are. I am confident that this forum can school me. Please do. I am a Ford NH guy (and a little Kubota). At least LS is the right color to...

    I am getting ready to change the oil in my NH. However I remember reading on TBN a couple years ago that someone had done it somehow incorrectly and as a result ruined the motor.

    New lincoln 210 mp STICK question

    The new Lincoln 210 mp shows 14.7 volts input max required at 230v. Other companies like Everlast make inverter stick welders that seem to require considerably more max input voltage. Are the 2 machines capable of STICK welding the same size steel? It seems like I am not comparing apples to...

    angle grinder question

    Need to pick up a new angle grinder. Was looking for 4.5in or 5in. Probably a stupid question but will 4.5 in discs and cutting wheels work on a 5in grinder? If so it seems like a 5in would provide more options. It could use both sizes. Any thoughts?

    cutting a little steel

    Looking for suggestions for a fairly inexpensive way to cut steel up to maybe 1/4 in. I will only need to cut steel occasionally but I want to be able to make the shapes I need to make repairs on farm equipment (mower decks, wagons etc). I don't need anything commercial but I don't like junk either.
