    Change coupling type

    I have Mahindra max that has a couple of leaking couplings on the FEL valve. Probably my own fault because I put the FEL on and off probably once a week during the summer and when I go to reconnect it two of the female side of the couplings (hose end) need to be depressurized and I usually do...

    Max series pto operation

    My Max has two levers one to operate the 540 rpm rear pto and one to operate the 2000 rpm mid pto. Was wondering if the rear pto shaft rotates when the mid pto shift lever is engaged or are they totally independent from each other

    Woodmaxx FM54 Flail mower review

    My new Woodmaxx FM 54 mower was delivered last week and after setting it up and putting in a couple hours cutting the lawn and some brush I thought I'd share what I've learned. Let me start by saying that I did a lot of research including reading the very long Flail Mower thread and couldn't...

Bottom line is I'm wondering if anyone has any operating experience running a 48"...

    Changed the fluid last week and was originally going to go with the Chevron 1000thf but turns out the nearest source is in Gardner, MA about 60 miles away, so ended up going to the dealer.

Two of them are on the bottom of each side of the tranny near where the axle tubes attach and the third is on the back side of the mid PTO.

    I have a 2 year old Max 22 with about 170 hours on it. It's leaking hyd fluid from what looks like the mid pto shaft seal. Stopped by my dealer to ask if it was covered by the 5 year power train warranty. The dealer contacted Mahindra who denied the warranty saying it's an external seal. Was...

    Was doing some maintenance on my tractor (about 150 hrs on it) and was going to check the torque on the bolts. It's a Max with FEL and Backhoe.

    Thinking about adding SSQA on my Max22 which has a ML202 loader on it. Found a company called Worksaver that has a pin on adapter for the Max ML24 and ML26 loader that weighs only 85lbs. Was wondering if anyone knows if the pin spacing and size is the same on the ML24 and ML202 loader.

    Max Oil filter question

    Was getting getting ready to do my 100 hour maintenance and popped the hood to look things over. Noticed that the oil filter still had yellow overspray paint on it from paint they put on the dipstick. See the photo. Thought this was odd since I had the dealer perform the 50 hr service and the...

    Dealer responsiveness

    I have a 2 year old Max 22 with about 150 hrs on it that has really not had any problems. I have gone to the dealer a couple of times with minor issues and questions and for the most part they've been very good as long as they don't need support from Mahindra. The latest issue is the FEL will...
