    Case 65A - Cab air conditioning

    Wow, it is a major deal to clean the evaporator on my NH TN70D. You have to remove the headliner in the cab, remove the heater core/evaporator/fan enclosure then split the enclosure to get to the evaporator. Just finished cleaning the coils and reinstalling the enclosure. What a pain in the A$$...

    Cleaning Up Substantial Yard Debris

    I recently purchased a skeleton (rock) bucket with two grapple lids on it. I have been using this on my skid steer (with foamed tires) cleaning 20 years of trash off my property. I found that by pushing the skeleton bucket into the pile at ground level, I eliminated much of the degris that would...

    Plate tamper for compacting 300m of driveway?

    I work as an inspector on water and sewer line projects also a few road projects here and there. The last project I was on, the contractor was using a plate compactor that was attached to a backhoe. It ran off the backhoe hydraulics. It was very effective in compacting the back fill in the 2'...

    Farm UTV/RTV Purchase

    I bought a 2019 Polaris Ranger 570 full sized new a few years ago. Mostly just use it riding around sight seeing. Have used it some for fence repair and chasing cows on the 300 acre ranch that my SOL rents. This has been a solid unit that has given no trouble since I have had it. It will run a...

    Best Pallet Fork Grapple?

    I bought a "The Thumb" more than 10 years ago and mounted it on a dedicated heavy duty pallet fork. I have used it on my skid loader for carrying large trees to light brush. Also it is great for demo work on old out buildings, barns and such. I once picked the entire roof off of a 8'X12' chicken...

    Grapple style preference

    I finally got to try my new grapple yesterday evening. The grapple has been sitting in the yard for 2 weeks but my skid has been on another job and not available. Got the skid back home yesterday. This thing (the grapple) is awesome! I only picked up three scoops out of the trash pile before...

    Grapple style preference

    I just purchased a new grapple. After much inner debate, I went with style 1 except that the bottom is a skeleton style rock bucket with 3" spacing between the tines. The grapple is a 66" with two lids that weighs right at 1000lb. Another thing I was looking for in a grapple was where the tine...

    Anybody attempted to remove skid steer tires that have been foamed?

    Anybody attempted to remove skid steer tires that have been foamed?

    4570man, $200 for all, don't know about the price of new rims. Ruffdog, I watched that same video. I think there may be some difference between a lawn mower tire and a skid steer tire. I watched a farmer's video where he cut his skid steer tires off with a chain saw. Tim

    Anybody attempted to remove skid steer tires that have been foamed?

    Thanks all, doesn't seem like a job for the faint of heart. The tire dealer said that it would cost about $200 additional to have the old tires removed from the rims. After your responses and watching a few you tube videos I suspect that is a cheap $200 Tim

    Anybody attempted to remove skid steer tires that have been foamed?

    I put new tires on my 2007 skid steer when I bought it in 2015. Now it is time to change the tires. Any suggestions on how to remove the old tires for the rims will be appreciated. Tim

    Got a new Duromax XP10000EH Generator, propane question

    Thank you all for your replies. I will call the manufacturer today and get clarification on the liquid propane issue. After reading your replies and talking to th Wheat Energy (propane) guy, I am inclined to believe that this generator was designed to run on vapor. Tim

    Got a new Duromax XP10000EH Generator, propane question

    This desire for a generator is prompted by an unusual weather event last year here in Texas. We had about 4 days of extreme cold (hovered around zero for much of the time), wet, snowy weather last winter. During this time, we were some of the lucky ones in that we only suffered rolling...

    Hey all, I was gifted a new DuroMax XP10000EH dual fuel generator. I would like to run this on propane. There is a note on the box that says it requires liquid propane. I believe there is a regulator on the generator that you just hook a hose to. My question is do I need a special tank with a...

    experiences with skid steer mulchers?

    I have never used a mulcher. I do believe they have their place in the land clearing world and I would like to try one sometime should the opportunity arise. However, I do quite a bit of grubbing work with my skid steer. I use a sheeps foot grubber on my machine and can take out a large mesquite...

    Hydraulic auger problem

    If you have a spare rear remote, check and see what the flow through that is. If it is higher than what is available at the front, plumb from the rear remote to the front. Better yet, hook that auger to the back hoe arm and run it that way.

    Hydraulic auger problem

    I run a auger quite a bit on my skid steer digging fence post holes, piers for foundations and up to 36" by 11' piers for setting light poles. Occasionally I run the auger at low speed so I can feel for any obstructions I may be about to drill through (yes, I always call 811). In my area we have...

    OVER TIRES TRACKS questions hands on experience ???

    I had a NH LX565 for several years that I bought a set McLaren OTT tracks for. I would install them or remove them as needed, took maybe 45 min to an hour. I was very impressed with them. At the time I was using them in muddy and sandy conditions. They worked very well in both situations...

    Need advice on 30 -40hp tractor purchase

    I had a Rhino 950 that I used behind my TN70D tractor. I used it to cover power line ditches. It was a wonderful, versatile blade, very stout. Mine was set up to control all functions from inside the cab. I can see it being very effective as a snow clearing tool. Tim

    OT sort of Changing engines on a wheelbarrow compressor

    Wow, ran across this old thread so I thought I would update anyone interested. The predator engine is doing well. I don't use it much so after a few months of non use, I usually have to hit it with a dose of starting fluid (had to do the same for the Honda after it got some age on it too). All...

    Did you build or buy your tractor shed/garage

    I too bought a conex to store my tractors in. I have a NH TN70D cabbed tractor and a skid loader and a bad rodent problem. I elected to buy a 40' High Cube container with doors on both ends. As containers go, it was kind of expensive at around $5,500 delivered. In order to get the double door...

    5' or 6' skid steer mounted brush buster?

    Good morning all, I am about to acquire a brush buster (generic term) for my skid steer. This will not be a super heavy duty machine, more for knocking down brush than trees. My skid steer is a NH L190 with an enclosed cab. I have rented these units before including the monster ones so I have...

    Modifying a tandem disk

    Thanks guys, Actually, I would still prefer to narrow the entire plow to 10' overall width. Mostly to make it easier to go through narrower gates and also to make it easier to road the tractor and plow (not so much hanging out on either side). This plow will be used mostly for food plots and...

    Modifying a tandem disk

    Anyone had any experience changing the width of a Tandem Disk? I would like to narrow a 12' or 14' Tandem down to 10'. An 8' is too small and I may have trouble pulling a 12'. I found an old 10' that someone wanted $3500 for, felt like that was more than I wanted to pay for an old disk. Ran...

    Hey all, New to the snow plowing forum. I live in West Texas so snow is rarely a problem here. Except today. Snowed all day yesterday, got about 6" of snow. Normally we get 1"-2" of snow per year usually in one snow event if it snows at all. This year we have two snow events within a week of...

    Build/buy a skid steer brush cutter or cobble one up from an old brush hog?

    Hey Guys, I need a front mounted mower for my skid steer. I don't need one often enough to spend $2500 - $4500 to buy one. A few years ago, I drew one up that I figured would cost me around $1500 - $2000 in materials plus labor. Still a large investment in time and materials for no more than I...

    New shoes for my tractor

    I finally bit the bullet and bought new tires for my TN70D. At 15 years in I replaced the front tires (Titan) with some Deestone tires. I was hoping the Deestones would get me through until I needed to replace the rears. They didn't. So, at 18 years I replaced the Titans (original on the...

    Hey all, I have a 2000 model TN70D that I bought new. The tractor is stuck in 4WD. Best I can tell, the 4WD mode is actuated hydraulically. It is my understanding that if this solenoid fails, the tractor goes into 4WD. I have found what I thought was the solenoid on the right side of the...
