    Grapple Options

    If you're looking to move a lot of brush, some trunk parts, I find the grapple bucket limiting bit adequate for occasional yard/property chores. For work, a dedicated brush grapple is worth investing in. On my 1850 I use the 34" one from pallet forks. Com. On the 425 the power trac made...

    1978 Terramite 4 Hydrulic problem

    Does it tram well even if it's a hill or over an obstacle that requires pressure? If you're only losing curl/cylinder function you might have a sticky relief though you should be able to hear it squealing. It sounds like you're building up heat in the fluid maybe. Open all the access panels...

    RK19 Has this happened to you

    I hope he gets some help but... It's a dead end unless the dealer also set up the shaft and implement. Matched and appropriate setup aren't the same.

    Predator yay or nay

    The gx630 is a 21. Never noticed a significant power loss except with the trencher. Thrifty, reliable engine. The seller is a maintenance/service Mgr for united rentals. Not a lemon dealer. If you're interested in them pm. Happy to help. Nothing in it for me... The predators are OK....don't...

    5' King Kutter bent bush hog Lift Arm Brace

    Good eye ruff dog. These bend so other things don't, resist the temptation to reinforce that stay. Replace it with a new one. Keep the olds as spares. Also if you're unfamiliar with running a brush deck, mind that when you turn sharply the leading edge wants to dive. Lift a bit, turn, lower...

    RK24 Hydraulic failure

    There are often multiple reliefs in the system. Under that nut is either a relief or an adjustment for the divider. I think you're on the right track. That lil plug w oring could be a bleeder. It's possible that air was introduced to the system during filter change and pushed out at the oring...

    Predator yay or nay

    Give your gf the Honda gx series the predator is based on. I've used both in several repowers and way better service from the Honda. A guy near me has 2 gx630 engines for 700. Brand new and one w 10h for 600. From an abandoned project. Near Burlington NC. I could get them as close to you as...

    RK24 Hydraulic failure

    I suggest posting this in the hydraulics forum for a wider range of eyeballs on the question. It sounds like excess pressure. You may have a relief valve stuck. You can buy, make or get a shop to use a pressure test gage to verify the spike in pressure. Could be the result of a collapsed or...

    Bolt on blade for buckets

    Same happens to mine. I repaired it and braced it with a steel 'x' across the bottom.... Helps. We tend to use a mini skidsteer land plane now. Built to backdrag and works on the same cheese slicer concept. Easy to fab or relatively low cost purchase. has them..

    Hydraulic Cylinder Replacement

    Well pulling it w a truck is definitely not helping the wheel motors unless you are also finding the patience to deal with the tow instructions. The cylinders are made by pt in house, unless something there changed. You can get like size one elsewhere I guess but the should match... So that's...

    TYM T25/RK25 attachment compatibility

    Great question. Definitely a gray area. See if you can get a manual or parts diagram emailed by each seller. The fit up at the tractor is likely the same the rest could be different. Fwiw, the local Mahindra dealer has been helpful in finding parts for my rk55 in the tym database. They knew...

    425 60" mower motor

    There's adequate hp. I've converted 540rpm attachments for hydraulic use by selecting a hydraulic motor that has a bearing for side loads to produce near 540 at the pt's rated flow. Then we coupled the hydraulic motor to the gearbox using chain. That leaves all the implement engineering in...

    425 60" mower motor

    Good info. Thx for sharing. I'm putting those numbers here, so search engines can see them... : SER X0411 04478 BUILD INFO : MGG20025 BB1A3 Surplus center is a good source of these if you need. But power-trac does a pretty good job of fair parts pricing and I buy from them when I can.

    PT-184 engine swap

    They'll absolutely sell you what you want to upgrade. I've converted several machines from different manufacturers to run pt equipment. And many implements for skid steer and tractor to use on pt. It's worth upgrading to hydraulic quick attach while you're at it.

    1997 T5C hydraulics Problem

    You may have a sticky, stuck relief valve. Cross your fingers, that's cheap. If your machine will lift its rear on the stabilizers, check that the pedal is in complete control of the tram lever on the pump body. I had a broken roll pin that was causing the lever the pedal controls to judder...

    Skid Steer Quick Connect On Terramite

    I made this mod and I think posted pics of you search my posts in this forum. The biggest single piece of advice... Switch to 2 loader tilt cylinders. When I first put on my tilt tach plate from titan, I had just one cylinder and quickly pretzled it. The lowest cost path to skidsteer...

    Hi all Lots of equipment and experience but I'm newly in the market for a 20-30 hp (engine) property maintenance tractor and have a usability question. The terrain is suitable for 2wd and belly mower. The tractor is likely to see 3-400h/year. Used or new is fine. I'm after a hydro trans...

    Anyone have 300+ hours on their RK55?

    Sorry to hear about your troubles. I'm around 250 and no tractor issues to speak of. Generally good interactions with rk, tho their staffing struggles are apparent. If your rk store is a problem, try the nearest tym and Mahindra dealers. I had a problem (self inflicted) they knew the...

    RK25 and skid steer compatibility

    Universal is a moving target in the ss world. It's getting closer. I've modded several to fit by enlarging, adding holes. Never had a problem, but none of my machines are at the upper end of the ssqa capacity. The 25 is pretty low on the capacity scale for ss attachments so you should have a...

    PT425 ran great yesterday, won't start today and backfiring through the carb

    Power Trac Maximum Slope Capability Questions

    My experience with the tractor (rk55) 200h now, and store, Martinsville, VA has been great. The store, like a lot of places, has struggled with staffing during covid. But the few needs I have had were met and felt like a priority. Idk about the rk37, but the local Mahindra dealer is...

    Got a 1430, looking for pallet fork recommendations

    The machine/carrier (pt1430) in question is rated to lift 1200#, so power trac would not label them any higher regardless of the capacity.

    Backhoe control valve replacement T5B

    IMHO you're on the right track. I've had great service and support from hydraulic-master which is based in Poland and provides great service. Summit also does well. I added a hydraulic thumb to mine. I don't know how old your unit is but consider replacing any hoses. Adapters add up fast and...
