    Bought a Load Trail trailer

    They make good trailers. I have a 83"x24' gooseneck with slide in ramps and stabilizer jacks. I have never used them but I think with a bumper pull they would be nice. I also had a 7'x16'x2' gooseneck dump and my son has a 102"x24' gooseneck w/max ramps. This picture was taken last month, paint...

    Used 3320 with 3600 hours … is that near the end ?

    Like any used vehicle, it depends on how it was used and maintained. I have a '94 JD970 with 9700 hrs and a '09 JD4320 with 3200 hrs. The first thing I do on a used vehicle is change all fluids, filters and clean all screens. That can give you a good idea how it was taken care of. It is amazing...

    Why no Ecoboost in the F250?

    Off topic, Lol. Hay Dude, FYI, use a bolt and nut for your hitch pin. That way you get support from both ears of the hitch.

    2440 Hydraulic Woes

    When was the last time you serviced the hydraulic system, change oil, filter and clean the suction screen? It sounds like the hydraulic pumps are flow restricted, that will also restrict the output flow volume and pressure.

    Why no Ecoboost in the F250?

    The ecoboost guys need to read the fine print in the operator's manual. My little 2.0 ecoboost powered Ford Escape says, a cartop carrier will be considered severe duty and require the severe duty maintenance schedule:)

    2320 Pto shaft is bogging down / slipping !!

    Yes. I would change the oil, clean the screen again and change the filter. The oil has been compromised by the contaminated oil left in the system.

    2320 Pto shaft is bogging down / slipping !!

    Okay, so you had a major hydraulic repair along with a major oil contamination. Does the tractor have a FEL? If so, the contaminated oil will have been in the cylinders along with the rock shaft cylinder and maybe power steering. Now that oil is in the system. I would at least change the filter...

    2320 Pto shaft is bogging down / slipping !!

    They can wear just like any wet clutch, or the piston can leak/bypass. When did you change your fluid last? What are you using for fluid?

    Front axle seal leak JD 4700

    Most tractors have the hydraulic system and the transmission/rear axle combined in the same case/compartment, so that is the spec. You do need to use "Hydraulic/Tractor" fluid in them not plain hydraulic fluid. Hydraulic fluid is for hydraulic systems only. Most tractors spec their own fluid...

    Front axle seal leak JD 4700

    The 4700 appears to have a vent in the front axle, #SU52604. Also, my JD's call for GL5 gear oil for the front axle, not HY-Gard. John Deere Front Differential Breather - SU52604

    Found a '97, JD 970 4x4

    After a lot of research on canopy's, I ordered one from this outfit, they are local to Arizona. It is very similar to the oem on my 4320 and less than half the cost of the oem 970 unit. They are the only aftermarket canopy manufacturer that supplies them to oem's. - KIT: TAP101 Canopy Kit...

    Good eye, the dually is a '74, the brown 4x4 is a '75. I built the dually in 1990 with a Cummins conversion. I sled pulled the brown truck for 3 years straight in the Rocky Mountain circuits, ('14-'16) in the 6500 lbs street class. The dually was my tow truck in the log woods, 13 years as a...

    Told you I had a bushel basket of parts ordered:) Still need a few small items I overlooked and I want a canopy. I might go aftermarket or go oem for a newer model tractor. They are cheaper and more simple. The 970 oem is high dollar and fancy. Note the fan blades, with the right hand engine...

    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...

    Why no Ecoboost in the F250?

    Not doubting you at all, I am a diesel fan, got 9 of 'em, Lol But a little trivia...My '17 Ford Escape w/2.0 Eco-boost has 245hp/275tq. New Cummins crate engine, 2.8 has 161hp/310tq.

    Why no Ecoboost in the F250?

    Just made a short round trip haul with the '21 Ram, all mountain grades including Salt River Canyon. Pretty sure the Eco Boost would do the trick, but they don't hold back like a big block gasser or exhaust brake equipped diesel. Loaded I was about 17k, so small load but still....Round trip was...

    Need help with purchase of weight distribution hitch

    Thats what I have on my '01, 17k Curt. https://www.etrailer.com/Trailer-Hitch-Ball-Mount/CURT/C45341.html What is your ball rated at? Everything is rated 20k on my '21.

    Need help with purchase of weight distribution hitch

    Curt says this: Also, the receiver is not rated any higher than the ball mount/drawbar. There are also differences between OEM hitches and aftermarket. A lot of 2" are class 5. "Class 5 hitches are a bit different from other hitch class ratings, as this class is not officially recognized by the...

    Need help with purchase of weight distribution hitch

    Google search says this: "The V-5 rating just means that it was manufactured to North American standards and relates in no way to the hitch capacity." "I found at this web site: 4reese.com , they say that the V-5 rating is simply referring to the quality of steel used in the production of the...

    Dump trailer ramps strength for loading skid steer

    Like others have said, I have never had an issue loading a 10k bobcat loader. It does have a longer wheel base than a skid steer, so probably only 5k on the ramps at a time.

    Need help with purchase of weight distribution hitch

    Even if the fuel tanker trailer is half empty, the combo might weigh 15k. The header trailer is considered a farm trailer, so brakes are optional. Even if it has brakes, for sure there is no plug on the rear for the double. Looks sketchy at best and a hand full at worst. I am no stranger to...

    Need help with purchase of weight distribution hitch

    Thanks Bud, I would like that. I do understand the trailer is mostly used behind the combine or behind a big truck and trailer. However, they do pull it with a pickup and in the case of the double tow, he is probably at max gcw. That was why I questioned RandyT ...weight distribution is...

    Need help with purchase of weight distribution hitch

    How would you use weight distribution with this combo? Pretty sure he is at max GCW and pulling bumper pull doubles. I would not like this at all, however, it appears to be the norm for Custom Combiners.

    Need help with purchase of weight distribution hitch

    Yes, easy on, easy off. Make sure your trailer tongue is compatible with the over center lift brackets. Also, bar length. Mine is the short bar style to clear the trailer tool box. Keep in mind your truck and trailer height, to insure the right amount of hitch drop/rise.

    Need help with purchase of weight distribution hitch

    I am not a fan of the round arm style, you loose ground clearance. I prefer the trunnion style. It may or may not matter in your use, I do a lot of off highway hauling. This is the one I have. It may be too heavy for your use, they make them in the 10k range...

    Utility trailers - what should i know?

    I recommend you go to a trailer build site and do some research. Economy trailers are just that, cheap. If you don't know what to look for, there can be all kinds of money saving quality issues. Poor paint, off brand axles, wide spaced crossmembers, poor lights and light weight angle iron...

    It is the style of trailer that bugs me, towing with an empty pickup. I tow heavy with my 2500's but carry some of the trailer weight. When you panic stop you load the rear axle of the tow vehicle. That trailer would unload the rear axle of the pickup and be a hand full. This was a custom...

    The fact he is towing it with a pickup is what is bugging me. I can see it if it was a big truck. I would guess his load is about double what the pickup weighs. I tow heavy but always have part of the towed weight on the pickup. Some of those trailers are up to 20k gvw. I would think...

    Can some of you guys explain this rig? Kind of a poor picture, I took it with my cell phone off a video. It was a video of a custom harvesting/transport crew on the move. Most of the trucks were semis towing two big trailers. First trailer was hauling the combine and the second trailer was...

    I agree. I am a hammerless DAO revolver fan. Not sure how she will carry but you can shoot them in a purse or pocket. Nothing to do but pull the trigger. She might consider moving up to 22 WMR in S&W or Tarus.

    Fuel pump issue

    Did an R&R injection pump on my Bobcat Loader, 4.236 Perkins Diesel. It was making oil, so I changed out the mechanical lift pump first, no luck. I went with a recon from Oregon Fuel Injection. I did have to wait 2 weeks for them to build me one, but I think they are an O.K. outfit. About 1/3...

    Your towing rigs and trailers

    You are probably right on both being 10K HD's. They are kinda rare. If I remember right the HD's hub cap is the same size as the hub. On a SD, the hub tapers down at the cap, so it is smaller. Thats a cool HD trailer!
  44. nisaacs

    Your towing rigs and trailers

    You might need to swap the axles. If your existing trailer has 10k standard duty, I doubt the air brakes will fit. I would guess the air brake axles are 10k HD, I think they have slightly different hub, spindle and bearings.
