    Found a '97, JD 970 4x4

    I have had my eye open for a 970/1070 4x4. I have a '94 970 4x2 that is an awesome tractor but won't pull the hat off your head. I picked it up at an auction. Kinda scary because all the items for sale were all non runners. Been parked for years. It is going to be a keeper. After several days of...

    Pump upgrade for dump trailer

    I posted this on another forum so I though I would share it here. As all you owner operators of dump trailers are aware, the lift is super slow. For me, it is aggravatingly slow. For a home owner with once in awhile use, it is fine, in a commercial setting, not. (1) Calling all dump trailer...

    JD 4320/400cx mount repair.

    I have an '09 John Deere 4320 with the 400cx loader. It has 3k hours on it. I had trouble with the right hand mount, uncoupling with heavy use. After looking at the wear of the mount and mast I decided to replace the mount thinking it had the most wear v/s the mast, plus it was cheaper:) It...

    New Diamond C FMAX 212 flatbed trailer.

    I picked up my son's new trailer Monday, Diamond C FMAX212, 102"x32' w/Max ramps, 25.9k gvw. Round trip to Mesa, 340 miles, 21.5 gal=15.81 mpg, not bad for a 20 year old truck. Dang, seeing my son's new Diamond C trailer might push me over the edge. I have been looking/researching the...

    Nova BX72R 540/1000 PTO chipper review

    This is a 7" direct drive, double hydraulic powered in-feed roller unit. After 3 fails of other chippers I think I have a keeper. It can out chip this older guy:D I was a little concerned that at 540 pto rpm my JD would lack performance and I would need to use my Case/IH with 1000 rpm pto. Not...

    Any Befco tillers on here?

    I just bought a used Befco 11-250-23x tiller. I would like to change oil in the gearboxes but I don't see a drain plug or level plug anywhere...what are they thinking? What do you guys do? I do have a seal seeping on the output shaft of the pto gear box so I can empty the oil when I change it...

    Hay Buster 1000 gets it done.

    Ground up 40 yards of a special blend of compost/manure this morning. 30% compost (aged ground pine needles/wood pieces) 30% horse, 20% alpaca/grass hay mix and 20% cow. Looks good and should be a fine mixture for soil amendment. Compost that I used, not the pup:) and finished material.

    Box Scraper Frontier BB2184/RB2284

    Buying a used Frontier BB2184 box blade and a RB2284 rear blade. I did my search in Texas so they can be picked up with my new PJ dump trailer. I got lucky and found them both, with very little extra mileage. They are both 7' so an easy fit in a 16' dump. Now I just have to learn how to use...

    New PJ, DE model, dump on order.

    This is a new model for PJ and comes standard with a 7'x16'x3' 7 gauge bed, 20k GVW. Probably more trailer than a home owner would need, however, I haul commercial so bigger is better. My current trailer is a Lamar 7'x16'x3' 7 gauge floor, 16k GVW. I will keep it as my secondary unit and sold my...
