    New (to me) 4100

    Picked up a high hour (5540 hrs) John Deere 4100 today so I can have a mowing tractor again. Surprisingly for the hours it’s mechanically sound, no blow by, smoke, or stuttering in the transmission/hydraulics. I’m not sure what it’s previous life entailed but I think it’ll have an easy...

    YM187D Project tractor

    It was bound to happen… listed my 226D for a stupid price thinking no one will ever buy it yet I still sold it. 🤷🏻‍♂️ Timing wise it worked out though since I was moving into my new shop and needed to free up some space while I got settled in. Now that everything is put away it was time for...

    Hyster S40 / E50 part interchangeability

    About 2 months ago I picked up a Hyster S40XM forklift for a fair price. It’s everything I need in a shop forklift although I wouldn’t mind if it lifted higher than 7ft. A few weeks ago I snagged 2 more forklifts, 2 identical E50XM’s. One is missing the battery and the other needs the...

    135D project tractor

    Picked up another project today, a Yanmar YM135D. The guy’s dad used to be the local Yanmar dealer back in the day and believed his dad sold this tractor new. He had torn it apart to fix the leaking front end then suddenly put it back together and decided to sell it as it wasn’t really his...

    New to me 226D

    Posted this on my other thread but figured I’d start a new thread for the “new” tractor. This one is a Yanmar YM226D, let’s just say it needs some love. - Clutch releases basically at the bottom of the pedal (can’t shift ranges or into the PTO when running) - front axle pivot is pretty worn...

    Might be getting back into a Yanmar

    It’s certainly been a while, almost 10 years ago I sold my YM169D to purchase my first skidsteer. Today I do excavation full time with several newer bobcat machines but still have a soft spot for the 80’s US market Yanmar tractors. This afternoon I’m going to go look at this YM186D, apparently...

    Bobcat M600D / M600 Glow plugs

    Long time no post but I'm working on gathering information for a project machine. Last week I picked up an old M600 with a bad Wisconsin engine. Having had no luck finding a Wisconsin locally I did manage to find the Duetz F2L410 out of an M600D locally on ebay. So fast forward a few days I...

    Bobcat T180/T190 or Deere CT322/323D

    I start, I've had a 317 deere skid steer for several years and this year is is giving me plenty of grief, losing the hydraulic pump, injection pumps, and control linkage all at 1700 hrs. Power wise its unstoppable when everything is up to par, but I very much dislike the design behind the 4024T...

    Hinomoto E150 w/ locked engine

    I haven't posted here in quite a while but this last week I picked up a Hinomoto E150D with a seized engine as a project. The story I got from the seller was that the previous owner had used this tractor for 20 years to mow his field. He parked it in his machine shed for about 3 years and when...

    The M-Wards Hydrostatic 16 project

    A few days ago I picked up my 9th garden tractor, a 1977 Montgomery Wards Hydrostatic 16. This is my first M-Wards so a lot of it is new to me however I am very impressed with how well built this thing is. I believe it has a shaft driven transmission (which is serviceable), hydraulic lift, and...

    What is the largest load you have lifted with your tractor(s)?

    The title basically says it all, what is the largest load you have lifted with your tractor(s)? For me it is a toss up, both times using two skid steers to remove a stump or two out of the ground. The first time was with my Deere and my grandpa's Bobcat. We maxed out both machines trying to...

    Who else on here has a Skid Steer?

    I have had my skid steer for close to a year now (1 year @ end of January 2013) and absolutely love it! Who else on TBN has a skid steer? What do you use it for? How many hours does it have on it. I'll start. I have a 2004 John Deere 317 skid steer currently with a 66" bucket and a 3 point...

    hours per year

    How many hours do you put on your tractor in a year? I have noticed a huge jump with my Deere skid steer. My old Yanmar would get about 50-60 hours logged on it every year which would be mostly mowing and scraping dirt. Now that I have my Deere skid steer I am about 6 months into owning it and...

    Fitting an imatch to a skid steer + hydraulic PTO

    I came up with a wild idea that if I took my imatch from my old Yanmar and mounted it to the front of my John Deere 317 skid steer loader that I would be able to not only use the tractor implements I currently own but also be able to purchase 3 point implements in the future. Then I figured that...

    Deere 317 will not start

    Well, I should have known it was coming, the battery finally gave way on my 317 last night. It took a while to figure out how it comes out and I am in a pickle, the boom must be raised to remove the battery. :confused2: How am I supposed to raise the boom if I cant even start it? I have no other...

    What does this button do?

    I have had my deere for over a month now and still have no idea what the button to the far left does. I have been in several Deere skid steers and all of them have this button and I feel stupid for not knowing what it does. :confused2::laughing: Any ideas? Thanks guys! :)

    How many hours on your Yanmar?

    Saw a similar thread in the Kioti Forums and figured it would work out well in the Yanmar forums. How many hours does your tractor have on it? What have you added to customize your tractor? Pictures welcome. :thumbsup: My YM169D has a little over 1110 hours on it, still runs and works great...

    What is your favorite tractor model?

    Many of us will say our own Yanmar is our favorite model, but just out of curiosity, what is your favorite Yanmar model and why? Mine would have to be the FX235 because of the countless features it has available. I especially like how large the tires are as it focuses on getting as much power...

    John Deere 2040 hydraulic leak

    Monday in shop class i get to take the school's 2040 apart to replace a leaking hydraulic hose. To me I see it as an opportunity to learn a little about how the 2040 work's and get the hydraulic fluid off the shop floor as it is a hazard and liability on the school waiting for someone to slip...

    276D electrical

    I was asked if I could get a Yanmar tractor to run again. I assume it is a 276D, I have seen it from a distance in person. It has an electrical problem, the symptoms are "like a dead battery" yet the owner installed a new battery and it still does the same. Hasent ran in 5 months supposably. My...

    Allis Chalmers 610 re-power

    In July, I came across a deal and sure enough took it. It included an Allis Chalmers 610 and two Simplicity Broadmoor lawn tractors as well as some boxes of parts and a 36" MMM and a 30" belt driven rotary tiller. Being the tractor fanatic that I am I hauled them home and all of the sudden had a...

    The lawn tractor project

    Well, It was now I think 2 weeks ago on Tuesday??? that I bought myself 2 small lawn tractors to mess with. I got the 3 for $20 and that also included a 36" mower deck and a small tiller. I got a Simplicity 738 (nice paint), and Allis Chalmers 610 (really tight and nick named "Allison"), and a...

    What is your most used implement?

    The title says it all. It can range from FEL's to box blades to Bush hogs, most anything you use the most on your tractor. For me, It is probably my Brush hog. Even with it being seasonal it gets the most hours of use than most of my other implements. I have to mow the property every 2 weeks...

    Last week, i came across 3 very small lawn tractors when I was building a barn, they were stored at the place next door. now i have a history at this place, every time we have worked there, I bought something.

    A PTO shaft day

    It started when i decided to fix up my neighbor's John Deere 413 brush hog a few weeks ago. He and I made a deal that I could sell it and get half profit. So of course, I couldnt pass it up. :thumbsup::D It had a dent in the back, so I pounded it back, welded up the cracks, and painted it. Then...

    Fixing my Agric AL 50 yet again.....

    When I last used my tiller on Monday, it was leaking gear oil really bad from the gear box. I knew it was the seal that goes around the PTO stub so today i decided to take it apart to see what was going on. Sure enough, it was the PTO stub seal, so we ordered one today. Also, when I last used my...

    What would you change?

    What would you change if you were the one behind the design of your tractor? There are a lot of simple things that i can think about but i can say that i wish my YM169D had a 3rd range in the tranny, a reverser and a little bigger engine.

    3-Point Hitch 169D 3 point hitch is weak

    Last night i went out on my tractor to enjoy the nice weather and level out some ground where we dug up some stumps last year. My box blade got packed with mud and I tried to lift it and my tractor would not. So i backed up and got it cleaned out and it can only lift my box blade 4" off the...

    BX24 problem

    R4s on YM169D

    I have had a problem where my R1 tires have been damaging areas where the ground is soft or on well watered lawns (hard not to find in the pacific NW). So i have had the thought of getting R4 tires in the back of my mind for quite some time since the price was to high to justify the purchase...

    Replacing bearings in my Tiller

    A while back, I did a tilling job out on the Oregon coast. It all went well but soon enough, it was leaking oil and towards the end developed a bad sound. I got the job done but knew that there was one bad bearing and several seals that i needed to replace or repair.
