    2004 3820 3 point problem

    Does yours have a control knob under the seat to set the drop speed of the 3pt? that's how my 4720 is set up.

    Anyone have the seat break on a Branson tractor how to fix ?

    Mine broke twice, the first time it was the roll pin like the previous posts, the second time the knob broke where the roll pin sits in the grooves. Fixed it the second time by just getting a nut and screw for the tensioner system. Since the knob is useless now, I just need to use a ratchet...

    Leveling ground for tractor shed

    Just level the corners and edges. Use a transit level or a clear plastic tube full of water. Build your structure. Don't worry about the middle until afterwards. The gravel is going to compact and settle over time and you will most likely have to add more later. Besides, the middle doesn't...

    Stabilizing clamp on forks?

    The forks should have a point to hook up a stabilizer/support chain to the bucket. they also sell a bar that goes between the two forks to keep them from twisting apart.

    Front end loader - frozen lock pin

    My Branson 4720 does the same... I just spray the hell out of it, raise the bucket up to a comfortable height and then take a large punch and a hammer, and (not so) gently tap the bottom of the pin and (try to) move the release lever until it frees up. PITA. I've taken it apart and cleaned and...

    Hydrostat adjustment

    I got a couple from the dealer, they aren't as cheap as they ought to be. I was able to find one at Ace hardware that worked, but it was not very strong. it worked fine until the OEM spring arrived.

    Hydrostat adjustment

    the spring is hooked to a long tensioner screw on my 4720H, maybe you can tighten it up some. could be as simple as that, since it creeps both directions it sounds to me like the spring isn't tight enough

    Hydrostat adjustment

    I've gone through 3 pedal return springs in 4 years. They all broke. This latest one has been in place for almost 2 years now and is not quite as stiff as the previous ones, it doesn't snap the pedals back up but they do return to "neutral" fairly smoothly. When the transmission is still cold...

    Cut 10ac with finish mower - Advice Requested

    There should be another guy in the area that's willing to cut your field for hay. After it's cleaned up and you know what quality your hay is you can have someone cut it and bale for you to sell, or they'll cut and bale for a share.

    Attachment Help Needed!

    or a clamp-on trailer hitch for the bucket, or drill a hole in the bucket and put a ball of the appropriate size in it. will obviously depend on how much weight is on the trailer and how far he needs to move it.

    Is there any hardware to slide a tube gate?

    How about using a corral panel instead of a gate? they have the rounded standoffs on the ends at the bottom, very easy to slide. that's what I use as gates for our horse stalls, except I put gate hinges on one end. You could just use your existing method of holding your gate in place. Or you...

    Parking Brake Alarm?

    how about not using the parking brake for "parking"?? only use it when you absolutely need your tractor to not move unless it's being dragged. I almost never use mine, I drop the bucket or the 3pt implement (usually both) when parking...I only use the p-brake when I am working and dont' want the...

    How does the parking brake work?

    I only use the parking brake when I need to be positively stopped on a slope. It's easy to know that the p-brake needs to be released because the tractor won't move otherwise.

    Rotary Cutter Adjustment - Branson 2515H

    I have my rear wheel set so the blade is about 4-5" minimum above the ground, then I adjust the top link so I have a decent angle of attack, then raise or lower the 3pt as needed for what I'm cutting. Only thing that I "exactly" set is the left/right tilt on the lift arms - and that is "exact"...

    Rotary Cutter Adjustment - Branson 2515H

    Just saying - it's going to be "exactly 3/4" lower only when you also position your 3pt lever at "exactly" the same spot and your toplink is adjusted to "exactly" the same length and all of your tires are at "exactly" the same pressure. There are actually several factors at play with rear...

    Anvil “repair” issue

    Jeez, Guys! Give the OP a break! He stated in his first post that he is using a chunk of steel not a real anvil... He is trying to turn the chunk of steel into a hard surface that he can use LIKE an anvil. The surface hardening process he used didn't turn out so well and he wants advice to...

    Ebay Pallet Forks? G2G or no?

    I ju I just looked at them from the link you posted. Today they are $600 for the 42" and $650 for the 48". I wonder if they mis-posted the product initially. If you got them for 500 then that was a great deal.

    Adding teeth to a FEL

    I seriously doubt he's planning on making a 95 acre "food plot"... but you are correct, that would not be a fun chore with only a toothed bucket - might be better off with a pick and shovel!

    Exhaust Mod on my 3725

    Slowpoke, I was just on the Stanley Muffler site checking it out. I noticed the IH-10 has the same measurements as the IH-4. Only difference is that it's listed as good for both gas and diesel and priced $2 more at Tractor Supply ($39.99 vs $37.99). Why did you choose the 4 over the 10...

    Branson 4020 Hydraulic Oil, What do I Look For?

    main thing is to NOT use 303 fluid, it's for old pre-1970's or so tractors. otherwise the relatively cheap tractor supply branded fluid works. I would suggest to put some in to get you back to the garage, then drain it and replace it with a suitable fluid if needed.

    Quick question - clamp on forks to bucket

    I've got hooks welded on the top and have the forks supported using chain and load binders. Just wanting a way to put a backstop on too. Dedicated forks would be nice, but I wouldn't use them enough to justify the cost. Was thinking hook or loop welded to the back side of the backstop pocket...

    Quick question - clamp on forks to bucket

    I've got a set of clamp on forks and have been using them quite a bit to move question is about the backstop and the support chain. One or the other? Is there a not a way to use a backstop AND hook the chain to the keyhole or support the forks to keep the bucket from flexing?

    What have you done to your Branson today?

    I built a sprayer out of an IBC 275 gallon tote. Used the 2.2gpm pump and some of the fittings from my old Tractor Supply 15 gallon pull behind sprayer and fitted a 16ft swath boomless nozzle. It's setting on a 3pt carryall I got from Tractor Supply a couple of months ago and I'm using a 2"...

    Hi Y'all! I've been lurking this forum for awhile and love the advice and tips. My tractor is a Branson 4720H 2016 model. I have been trying to find a self leveling kit for my BL25 FEL. It's a PITA to load and stack round bales while constantly adjusting the bucket angle, also I have forks...
