    Here's the video where he buys the 988b wheel loader; same date as the video above, but 1:20:00 long. Lot of hill digging.

    He recently had a video of adding a pellet stove. He really didn't care for it and he wished he had got a NG/propane stove. He did mention the lack of insulation making it hard to heat.

    Feral hogs trap the building of my own (DIY).

    Trapping is by far the most efficient and effective way to get rid of feral pigs. However, small traps like this aren't very good at getting rid of pigs. It is an excellent way to make feral pigs trap smart. The above concept is discussed here: Hog Trapping - Trap & Gate Selection - JAGER...

    OP, what's your plan to get this in front of Kubota corp? If you've already posted it, I missed it.

    I've heard that the only work he takes on now is for it's YT value. Have no idea if it's true. Also, keep in mind in addition to all the new equipment, he recently bought another piece of property, apparently for snowmobiling. That's the property where he drags the Army truck and RV up the...

    Reminds me of that hippie survivalist on "Dual Survival" that quit when the producers wanted fake drama-lama interjected. He quit because it sent the wrong survival message from his perspective. Good for him, even though he is still a dumb ass for wearing nothing more than socks during a...

    Farm UTV/RTV Purchase

    Same here. 90% of my dumping is just to clear the bed of debris and mess. If I need to dump something, I'm using the tractor; it's bucket goes up and down, right at the height the load to be picked is; a lot less bending over.

    How difficult to install factory Kubota rear remote kit?

    In my L4330 Owner's Manual, it refers to Transmission oil when the tractor has the HST. When it's a geared tractor (like mine) it's referred to as Hydraulic Oil. Same fluid - SUDT.

    My apologies, I thought it was obvious what was missing: The good news! )"It's another good news/bad news kinda story...".) The bad news is this gearbox won't work worth a crap on my BH 286. The good news is that a Howse 7' HD cutter with dual tail wheels came free with the gearbox...

    And the hits just keep on coming.... I can't seem to catch a break here. It's another good news/bad news kinda story: The bad news: I found a replacement gearbox today. I had to drive 2 1/2 hours to get it and it cost me over $2200. As it turns out: There is no way it will replace and/or...

    Agri Supply used to sell 15 spline weld on blade hubs; I bought one when I first had this problem with my 286 2 1/2 years ago. Still got it around here somewhere. I don't see it on the AS site anymore. Bushhog/Messicks for 286/287 stumpjumpers are north of $500. :( Agri Supply on the other...

    Well it lasted 2 1/2 years: Bushhog 286 Output Shaft Repair

    Looking at another used cutter, this time a Howse. Howse says the cutter has a "Category 6" driveshaft series. I *assume* that means it's a standard 1 3/8" 6 spline PTO-type driveshaft? I also found this info on driveshafts on Tractor-data: TractorData.com - Power Take-Off Types

    Well it lasted 2 1/2 years: Bushhog 286 Output Shaft Repair

    Good news and bad news: Good news is that someone did throw a 1000 prm shaft on it; it's a 540 rpm gearbox. The bad news is that it's already sold. :( Back to the drawing board. The better news: Thanks to LD1 I now know to not *assume* all rotary cutters are 540 rpm cutters. I can't...

    Well it lasted 2 1/2 years: Bushhog 286 Output Shaft Repair

    Thanks for the help LD1, I appreciate it. According to the manufacturer, this is supposed to come with a 540 rpm gearbox rated at 110 hp. It's the same bushhog as mine except it's one foot bigger (287). In the pics, it appears it's the standard 110 hp Bushhog gearbox i.e. not something else...

    Well it lasted 2 1/2 years: Bushhog 286 Output Shaft Repair

    Found a used cutter for sale. However this picture of the front end of the driveshaft has me puzzled and a little worried: That's not the standard 1 3/8" six-splined PTO-type shaft I was expecting. What is that and how hard is it to R&R to the standard PTO shaft end?

    Well it lasted 2 1/2 years: Bushhog 286 Output Shaft Repair

    No, mostly because it broke over the weekend and everyone is closed. The only "machine shop" around here is the local welding company; they have a mill and lathe, but I'm not sure I'd call them a machine shop. They are however, a good source for info on who could repair/rebuild the gearbox if...

    Well it lasted 2 1/2 years: Bushhog 286 Output Shaft Repair

    Thus far, I've elminated no options. I'm actively looking for a replacement bushhog rotary cutter, Bushhog gearbox part number 70991 and to see if anyone around here repairs gearboxes. As I've said before on this site, the local farm store that used to be the go-to place for decades went out...

    One of these is an ISO 5675 male connector, what's the other one?

    Had a leaking ag connector on my FEL control valve. Bought the Summit replacement parts via the Kubota part number off of Amazon. Summit shipped pretty fast, so that's not the problem. To create more working space for my hand, I took off one of the connectors for better access to the one I...

    Well it lasted 2 1/2 years: Bushhog 286 Output Shaft Repair

    That thread was about taking the blades off mostly. Note in post #21 I comment about how loose (and wobbly) the stump jumper was to the output shaft and that I had to wait until I got the right socket. After I got the right socket and took off the castle nut, the damage to the output shaft and...

    Well it lasted 2 1/2 years: Bushhog 286 Output Shaft Repair

    Well I'm up to about to about $400 in replacement parts from Messicks and I'm not sure I'm done - and that doesn't include shipping nor labor to rebuild the box. I found this Omni 60 hp gearbox on Amazon for $350. Amazon.com: Omni Gear Rotary Cutter 60 hp Gear Box : Patio, Lawn & Garden If...

    Well it lasted 2 1/2 years: Bushhog 286 Output Shaft Repair

    Some of you might recall a thread I started back in Spring 2019 about my worn out output shaft on my Bushhog 286 rotary cutter. There were a number of options I looked at from cheap to very expensive (replace the cutter) and I chose to repair the shaft by simply welding it to the stump jumper...
