    I have never bought a new Kubota. When you build a tractor on their website, they give a list price. What has your experience been with respect to discounts off the list price?

    Hernia surgery

    I recently developed an inguinal hernia. Unfortunately that type is in the groin area, not exactly an area I want to be cut on. But hey, you do what you gotta do. I have an appointment with a surgeon Friday to discuss the possibilities going forward. Anyone ever have hernia surgery? If you...

    Plumbing advice

    My grandson flushed a toilet at my house and dropped his sunglasses in simultaneously. They are smallish sunglasses, he's only 6. Well they're gone, and subsequent flushes indicate they're hung in the line, water backup. What would be my best course of action? Will a plumber try to retrieve...

    I have a friend whose health is failing, and he wants to sell his L2500 tractor, 27HP 22.5 PTO HP. He has asked me to help him price it. It is 4WD and has a front end loader. The most interesting thing about the tractor is it's low hours, only 206. It has been kept under roof its entire...

    Sickle bar mower

    I have a need for one and have never used one. I am a little worried that if I buy a used one, I'm asking for trouble, however I don't want to pony up for a new one. Are they pretty straight forward to repair and maintain?

    Pneumatic grease gun

    I know a lot of guys on TBN use cordless grease guns. I don't do enough greasing to justify the cost of a cordless. However, I have been considering a pneumatic gun. They are considerably less expensive. Anyone have experience with a pneumatic? What are your thoughts?

    I put out a bluebird box 3 weeks ago, the first one here at my current residence. I saw some bluebirds flitting around in my yard prior to putting up the box. There is some nest material in the box. I'm not sure if it was put there by bluebirds or some other species. However, I see no...

    Worms on my patio

    I have a concrete slab patio level with the yard. When it rains, worms by the scads crawl onto the concrete and die leaving a mess. It is a never ending battle trying to keep it cleaned off. Is there any way to deter them from journeying into my space? My only thought is to spray the...

    PTO driven log splitter

    There is a PTO driven log splitter on CL for $250. I burn some wood in a wood stove at my hunting cabin, none at my primary residence. At that price I'm thinking about picking it up. I have never used a tractor driven log splitter. I'm guessing that it won't cycle as fast as a small engine...

    Lawnmower battery

    I am going to need a new battery for my lawn tractor. Wally World has 3 quality levels based on the number of cold cranking amps. Does the higher number of CCA have a relation to how long a batter should last. In other words, should I expect a longer life from the one with the higher CCA or...

    Covering a rotary cutter

    At the end of each cutting season I cover my rotary cutter with a tarp. I don't have enough room for inside storage. I'm sure I get a lot of condensation/moisture under the tarp. Would it potentially be better just to leave it out in the weather? Give me your thoughts to consider.

    Got my first set of pallet forks

    42" forks. I cannot see the tips when it is level and in position to pick up a pallet. Thinking maybe I should have gotten 48 inchers. I haven't used them much yet. Maybe I'll figure things out better once I've used them some more. Got any suggestions or hints that might help me with the...

    New quick attach

    I recently had a quick attach added to my Kubota. When I went to the dealer to pick up the tractor, I tried to operate the levers that lock the implements onto the FEL. One would not move at all. When I showed the service mgr, he said "I will get a technician to adjust it." When I got it...

    OK all you TBN medical advisers

    I just don't seem to have enough energy these days. Probably just a matter of getting older. I'm 69. Any vitamins/supplements you use that seem to help? Maybe something your doctor prescribed that's working? I need a little boost to get me out of the easy chair and into the chores.

    Review of chainsaw sharpener I just bought

    I recently read a thread on TBN about chainsaw sharpeners. It was specifically about the Timberline sharpener. Within the thread a few people mentioned the Granberg 1012XT sharpener. There were positive reviews of each one. I have never been satisfied with my ability to hand file a chain. I...
