    Oil & Fuel GC1715 Blowing hydraulic fluid

    to me. it looks like you have some air in your sump which is giving you a misleading level in the glass level indicator. How many quarts did you add? I would try removing at least a half a quart...then purge the air by raising and lowering the loader and curling the bucket 10 times, same with...

    The BH is mounted but yes I do see where it goes. Was wondering if that side of the turmbuckle also had a nut like the topside of the turnbuckle does. I noticed the ones they sell at The Tractor Supply store do not.

    What have you done with/to your GC Series 2300, 2400, 1700 Tractor TODAY

    I would never circumvent a safety item especially on a tractor. I have a snowblower and i will gladly live with the pto safety switch any day. There should be a disclaimer for all posts of this at your own risk, life, limb, relative, pet.etc.

    Yesterday. Would you buy and EV?

    No, and I have a better reason to than most because I already have a 7kw upgradeable to a 10kw solar system on my house. It would mean I get my fuel for free. A couple if months ago I bought a brand new car but it wasnt an EV. It is a 2022 Subaru Outback turbos. It will be...

    Found this in my yard but I know its from my GC2410. Is this end supposed to have a nut? It just came off by itself.

    Safety doesn't care if your forgetful

    it wasnt the pin that hit me on the head it was the ROP. Man thats heavy-I did not go to the hospital because it was a small lump, no bleeding . I didnt get a headache either. So far so good I think.

    Safety doesn't care if your forgetful

    Hello, Hope all is well with everyone. Wanted to share a misshap I recently had with my tractor. Took the tractor out of storage last week. Had it in the shed with a trickle charger and the ROPS up. To get it out I had to fold the ROPS but I dropped one of the pins behind the BH and couldn't...

    Anyone use a HF plate compactor?

    I have had the 6.5 HP HF Plate Compacter for 6 years. Bought it with a discount and coupon at the store for 500. Works great, never had a problem except everyone wants to borrow it. Right now its at my dads house and I need to get it for some projects of my own. So far I used it for paver...

    Is sub compact big enough?

    As a MF GC2410 owner for 12 years and I would recomend going with a compact or subcompact tractor with bigger drive train and bigger tires for handling 18 acres. While the MF GC1705 will get it done, the question is cost of tractor vs cost of your time. In other words a 72 inch brush hog will...

    Oil & Fuel grr fuel leak GC2400

    Got home from my Brazil trip after 90 plus days and the first thing I did(not kidding either) was check on my GC2410. Sure enough I see now that there is a small fuel leak in the same spot.

    Massey in Brazil-Tour?

    Yes its summer-Carnival time. Its so hot here today 95f and yes after three months I cant wait to get back to Maine. I had a little fender bender with my rental car and a city taxi in Canoas when I visited the Massey plant. He was going three times the speed limit when we hit. Was a bad day...

    PTO snowblower?

    Cant comment on the blade but I have the 60 inch Woodmaxx on 1n 18.7 HP rear PTO. It does pretty well on this but I would recommend the bigger tractor. I have the electric auger, and deflector as well as add on LED lights. The neck thing does get some getting used to-I tried the mirrors but...

    Big Cars are killing Americans

    I would rather hit a deer (and I have several times) with an SUV than a Smart Car-just saying:)

    Big Cars are killing Americans

    Some good points but I think your wrong in saying its due to larger vehicles. I have seen elderly and children run over far too often by compact cars...much more so than large SUVs and cars. Technology can help, we have all kinds of sensors and cameras now. Some of the bigger pickup trucks and...

    Massey in Brazil-Tour?

    I think I talked with you a while back when I last visited the plant, they also make them in Mogi das Cruzes (Brazil). The kits go to different places in the US and world, but they do export the whole tractor to various places. I can only say what I saw with my own eyes that the Canoas plant is...

    I still hope to be able to tour the place-sometimes Americans can get vip status for these tours.

    Massey in Brazil-Tour?

    I am currently in the Brazilian state of Mato Grosso will be going further south soon. I tried PATS QH but found the extension too much of a pain in the but. On my snowblower I would have to get a new PTO Shaft so I returned it.

    Massey in Brazil-Tour?

    Keep in mind they manufacture and sell tractors in kits-they are assembled in the US or wherever else they are sold to.

    Massey in Brazil-Tour?

    Out of the frying pan and into the oven...its in the 90s where I am now with near 100% humidity (rainy season) Im almost wishing I was back in Maine-almost. Next month we are going further south not too far from Argentina-temps are muchhhh better-I hope.

    I will be near the Massey Plant in Canoas, Rio Grande Do Sul-Brazil in a few weeks. I am going to try and tour the plant and vlog some of it if they let me. I just want to show you that Brazil manufacturing is as good here as in Italy or Germany. I remember some saying they didnt think Brazil...

    Invasion Of The Marijuana Growers

    I do use CBD products for anxiety, it does work but it could be the fragrance and not the CBD oil in it (Placebo) If its medicinal properties work so well why cant the synthesize it like they do aspirin from willow tree? I think with all the information I have now-its a marketing gimmik but...

    Woodmaxx vs Landpride 3 pt snow blower?

    I have the Woodmaxx 60 inch and I run it using my GC2410 with 19HP at the PTO. It does way 695 pounds-the more the better on a rear snowblower. It does not go up unless you raise your a arms:) It comes with some heavy duty adjustable shoes. I love this snowblower, if I could do it all over...

    Invasion Of The Marijuana Growers

    I hate anything to do with this weed. To use valuable land to grow the junk which should be considered and invasive species is so wasteful. I have smoked. and consumed its garbage-like eating junkfood.

    why so many jeeps now on road?

    Jeep is not made by Dodge, but both are part of same parent company. I have owned 4 generations of Jeep and put over 150,000 miles on all of them except the one I drive now (have about 10,000 miles to go before I get there.) I have never lost a transmission, transfer case or engine on any of...

    Exploding tractor battery!

    Had one blow up in my face when I was a kid....I didnt know any better but my stupid father should have. He was in the loader trying to start it after a boost and I was the one clamping the jumper cables. Apparently there was alot of gas....and BOOM. Acid all over me, my face and clothes not...

    Cheap FEL cylinders keep bending

    Isnt that the point? It looks like those suggesting the missing 4 bar link will not only offer more stability but it will shorten the cylinder travel length. I tend to agree that bucket was not designed for this type tractor-it was designed for a skid steer. This setup offers way to much...

    Rear wheel spacers

    I know its a bit tight but if you tuck in the chains using bungee cords or rope you do not need spacers. I use chains and I have a 60 inch woodmaxx blower..never needed front chains. Chains are not recommended for steering wheels on almost any vehicle even when they are powered. If you break...

    Paint quality

    Mine is doing ok only because its always parked inside and i used to wax it with Mothers. But no-most tractors are not painted with good quality paint-that includes implements. My box blade which is powder coated included-however, they will still outlast me.
