    Why would a mower melt 20 amp fuses?

    Take the clutch off, and check the bearings in the clutch. What might be happening is, if the bearings are starting to bind, or if you lost some of the balls from the damaged bearing, sometimes they might align enough to allow the clutch to turn freely, and other times they might bind enough to...

    Business Ethics In The Tractor Industry

    Here,s my take on this, it doesn,t matter if it is a tractor dealer, truck dealer, car dealer, or trailer dealer, most salesman are as low as a snakes belly in the grass, and would rob their own mother blind, if they are allowed to. When buying, do your homework, and go in, as prepared as you...

    Mahindra dies after turning it on its side

    Have you checked the condition of your battery ? Does it still have fluid in it ? Take it out of the tractor, and do a load test on it, after giving it a full fluid check, and charge.

    Mahindra dies after turning it on its side

    Just another thought, not knowing what type of battery you have, is there any chance all the acid drained out while the tractor was on its side, damaging the battery ?

    Mahindra dies after turning it on its side

    I don,t know much about your specific tractor, but before trying to turn it over again, remove the injectors, or spark plugs, cause it might be you have fuel or oil above the top of the pistons, and you cannot compress that, so your engine will not turn over. Hopefully you didn,t bend any rods...

    Realistic value

    To the OP, if you are planning on trading it in, the difference you have to write the cheque for is the ONLY thing that matters. If you are happy with that amount, go for it, if not, see what you can buy the new one for, out the door, all costs included, without your trade-in. Then decide if you...

    Snowblower problem

    If you want to check if the shaft that controls the side of your blower is turning, carefully engage the snowblower, and look at the end of the shaft on the outside of the side that is not picking up the snow. That should confirm if it is a shear pin issue, or a gearbox issue.

    Kubota B8200D -- am I giving it away?

    Since you both know it is definitely worth more than 3500, especially now that you both know everything is working, see if he would consider coming up to 5K. That way you are only losing roughly 2K on it for all the time you have owned it. The buyer would still be getting a very good deal at...

    Kubota B8200D -- am I giving it away?

    Decide on how much you need to get for your tractor to keep your wife happy, and call the guy as soon as you can, and explain to him that there was a mis-understanding on the pricing. Who paid for the parts required for the fluid changes ? There is a reason I buy stuff, as is, where is, and...

    Any Experience with Bringing a Vehicle from Canada into the US

    Give us more details on the exact vehicle. Year, make, model, mileage, and a couple of recent pictures. I would advertise it in Ontario, Canada, sell it as is to someone from there, and then basically all you would need is a bill of sale, which is part of the sellers package, and the signed...

    Must Tractor ROPS Be So High?

    Yup, between the rops height of a BX2360, fixed height, and a BX2370, foldable, there has got to be 9-12 " difference. And the rops from a BX2360, will fit perfectly on a BX2370. I doubt if mankind grew that extra height between the time Kubota switched rops on one model to another.

    Help. My mom made a huge mistake on FB

    Personally, I would have a real hard time trusting or believing anyone on the end of a phone line from India. I would be doing all the contacting of the various companies required myself, to know to was actually done. It appears to me that a lot of these scams originate in India.

    B7300 cranks hard when hot.

    It may sound odd, but check both ends of your positive and negative battery connections. Take them completely off at both ends, and clean them up real good. Also, clean up both posts on the battery.

    Moving a "modular building"

    I would think it was assembled by joining the 2 sections together in the middle, so it should be easy to get it apart again. I would ask the seller if he knows who delivered it to him initially, and see if you could get in touch with them. I have an Amish shed, and it was put together with...

    Big Cars are killing Americans
