    Down/up control on pulled implements

    This is basically an opinion poll. And I expect a lot of rolled eyes on this subject due the inane and anal-rententive aspects of it. I had a discussion the other day about hooking up hydraulically controlled implements. Let's see if I can get the gist across and get y'all's thoughts: I was...

    M95S (or new M96S)

    I am seriously considering one of these. I started out looking at the 9540 but it is a significantly smaller chassis than the M96. Right now I am using a 4320 to pull a 12' cutting disc, 20' pulverizing disc and a 20' pulverizing disc. I am wondering how close to the edge of its envelope the...

    NH TD75 or Kubota M95

    I am torn between these two tractors. The Kubota is only about 7k more than the NH. (for 20 more HP!). I know this should be a no-brainer (I am leaning toward the Kubota). I have heard few folks complain about their tractor being too large. Both tractors are at a dealer I like (where I bought my...

    Struck by lightning

    This was the biggest, prettiest tree in this hay meadow. It is in the back of the meadow and I didn't notice it until I went to check on the rye grass hay that our hay cutter had just laid down. There are several large chunks blown several yards from the tree. What really struck me (no pun...

    sweeper magnets

    Anyone use one of these? I am not talking about the little "brooms" w/ a magnet in them. I am looking into a 48" wide suspended magnet I can hang from my forks or possibly from my landscape rake. I would be interested in knowing what I can expect as far as performance using it to pull debris out...

    Digital answering machine to PC

    Here's one to twist your noodle. I bought Mom a new phone the other day. Got around to hooking it for her yesterday. Here's the problem: Her old cordless phone had a digital answering machine (as does the new one) but.... she had 23 messages on the old phone. Turns out she kept most of the...

    I have GOT to get one of these!

    Check this out. The videos are every redneck's dream. Classic "hey, y'all, watch this" kind of stuff.

    Synthetic in my Honda Foreman

    Ok, I ran synthetic oil in a bike I had before and within a month I was replacing the clutch pack (wet clutch). Repairman at the local Honda shop blamed the synth oil. Now, I have a Honda Foreman and I know the synth would be better for the engine but I don't want to burn up the clutch. Any...

    What I did on Father's day

    A little leveling project on one of our small hay meadows. This tractor was the last big project Dad and I had before he passed away in January of this year. We bought this at Brinkley's Auction in Idabel, Ok. and went throught the motor. New pistons and liners, new turbo, rebuilt inj pump and...

    Coolant - Water Wetter

    Made by RedLine Oil. Anyone use this stuff? I have seen it mentioned on a couple websites for increasing cooling system performance. Like everything else, the product site sure talks a good line. Usual things...lower temps, corrosion prevention, will not rip run or tear... Snakeoil or Sound...

    FEL mounted grubber

    OK, I used the search feature... really I did. I even tried google. Anyway; Some time ago someone posted some pics of a homemade FEL mounted grubber. Anyone have any idea where I might find those pics? Thanks y'all PS> I should mention this: Yes, this request is so I can blatantly copy their...

    Pull type shredder

    Anyone remember the old Ford 100" shredders? We had one when I was a kid and it gave a near finish mower cut on large areas. Who makes one similar? Closest one I have found so far is from Rhino. Anybody know of any others?

    Illegal dumping

    Why is it some people take the saying "one man's trash is another man's treasure" to mean "I'll dump my garbage out in the country on somebody else's land"? I have picked up several mattresses, TVs, couches, etc. Not to mention all the bags of just household garbage. We have found addresses...

    Mobile Plasma cutting

    Ok, I have Lincoln Ranger 10000. I am about to pull the trigger on a Hypertherm600 plasma cutter. I plan to use it in conjunction w/ the welder on several "on-site" jobs (i.e.:building fence corners way back in the boonies). I notice in the specs it seems to require [email protected] (if I am reading...

    survey on age for first firearm

    Another post here got me thinking. For the firearm enthusiasts out there; How old were you when you got your first firearm? I mean at least rimfire. Pellet and BB guns don't count (and yes, I know they can be just as dangerous so don't start that). My son is 6. I think that is still a tad young...

    Old Diesel

    This is for anyone out there who is obsessing about their diesel fuel being "old". We sold Dad's old 806 International today. Tractor has been sitting for at least 7 years w/o being cranked/turned over. Tractor was pulled to where it sat. (for those interested, front oil seal is out, BAD, pours...

    Vintage JD iron

    I need some guidance. Dad's passion was collecting 2 cyl JDs. We never actually got around to restoring any of them because he stayed gone on the big truck until he got sick. But anyway, several of them are definitely restorable. I need some help finding people who want to restore these...

    Tire Wear

    Excluding useage on hard/paved surfaces, how many of y'all have ever worn out a tractor tire? Most of ours either dry rot and pop, or we run over something and rip it up.

    Never thought I would do this....

    Never thought I would put something like this in a post, just too weird in front of a bunch of "strangers". But I don't really see y'all as strangers anymore. Anyway, we lost my Dad this AM. He had been diagnosed w/ Congestive Heart Failure a couple years ago and was currently undergoing Chemo...

    5005 air filtration

    I am looking into getting rid of the oilbath type air filter on my 5005 and going to a paper element. W/ the FEL on there it is a real pain to get to and messy to refill. Anyone have any ideas?

    Impossibly long thread about grease?

    It seems motor oil and to some extent hydraulic and transmission fluid have been uhhhh..... discussed .... to a point. But what about good ole grease? I seem to remember replacing more ball joints, wheel bearings, and pivot pins than engine kits in the past. What are y'all's thoughts on lowly...

    5005DI saturation

    Just wondering how many of this model Mahindra are out there. This was my first new tractor (broke a family tradition of JD ). But once Dad finally started talking to me again, he has had to admit its not a bad piece of equipment. But I don't see many (any?) posts here about this model. I think...

    Add on Hydraulic filter on 5005

    I have a 5005. Recently I had an issue with the hydraulic pump locking up. Dealer went through 2 pumps before getting one that was "right". Anyway, what is y'all's opinion on hooking up a spin on Hyd filter to supplement the screen in the reservoir? Also, I wonder where I would put it? Wouldn't...

    Zena PTO welders

    I think this is the right place for this post. It does attach to the tractor... I am debating what type of welder to buy. I have a LOT of projects around the ranch and I figure I could have bought a new welder with what I have paid people to come out and weld. I found this company

    Mahindra/IH question

    I have a 5005 Mahindra. It is my understanding that M&M bought the "tooling rights" to some International models from the 60's. In fact, my 5005 is a dead ringer for the old 454 International. Anyway, has anyone had any experience with parts swapping between the old Internationals and this...

    Just Co-miserate with me a bit

    Here she sits. My 4 year old 5005DI. I was trying to get to my Brother-in-law's JD to pull him out of a hole. I got hung up on a tree and was trying to "curl" my way off of it with the bucket. Something went BANG in the motor and it spun down with a clicking sound. I don't know what gave up, but...

    Pulling with 2 tractors

    Here's a question. Say you have a large piece of equipment stuck and 2 smaller identical tractors that are unstuck. if neither smaller tractor can pull the larger one out by itself, but both together might.... Do you hook each tractor to the stuck equipment (side by side) or do you hook one to...

    pulling offset disc

    This is a little embarrassing since I grew up on a farm, but... I have a 6 1/2 ' offset wheeled disc (not 3pt). I also have a 50hp tractor. I'm pretty sure have the power to pull it but the tractor struggles with it as far as slippage goes. I filled the rear tires with water and that helped but...

    4WD turning radius

    I am looking at a 6500 4WD. I do a lot of loader work in the feed lot and cleaning up around the place (155+ acres). I currently have an older 5005 2wd and it has been adequate (sometimes just barely!). Is there a LOT of difference in the turning radius between 2WD & 4WD? I get in some tight...

    5005 Duals

    Anyone have any experience with Dual wheels on a Mahindra? My 5005 gets used for everything from general hay field work to clearing brush to breaking ground on new/future hay meadows. I have a 6 1/2' offset disc that it will just BARELY pull with both rear tires full of water and the interlock...
