    Choosing the right tractor

    I wasn’t actually questioning your results just pointing out some things that I think might need to be considered if someone decided to look into them. So far we I haven’t had any issue with our slopes. Just as with any mower if conditions are not Ideal some traction loss forcing me to only...

    Choosing the right tractor

    My husband also settled on a Kiioti DK last time shopping new and was very pleased. We have had no issues other than me leaving it dirty for him to clean every once in awhile😏

    Choosing the right tractor

    I won't argue with your cutting time except to say it must be very dependent on how much you pay being relevant to how fast your zero turn can mow. I purchased a gravely zero turn this year but honestly my cutting time for the 5 acres around the house did not decrease nearly as drastically as...

    you girls don't think this is too much do you?

    BUT in today’s society one only needs to say “ hey today I identify as a —————- “ so you can post freely and say your feminine side creeped out for just a few seconds and all is forgiven. Janet

    ATV tires on a Zero Turn?

    Properly rated tires may or may not give the same traction as under rated tires. I remember conversations about tires and weight ratings that lead to how much flex the sidewall will have between my Husband and others when he did off road. His rear tires were a mix of tires some for much heavier...

    Getting rid of a bumpy 4 acre yard

    Once I figured out the proper adjustment on my suspension seat my zero turn handles most of what I thought would need fixed. For the rest hubby will get a Honey do list like he never saw before! and directed to this tread. Janet

    Thanks for letting me know exactly what happens when I hit it with the hammer. I was always under the impression it was just stuck or jammed, never heard it called a dead spot but that kind of makes more sense to me than simply saying it's stuck. By the way thankfully its not raining. If it...

    I won't sit here and try to convince anyone I can do anything without fear. As you say that would take a complete Idiot! At the same time having a healthy understanding of the risks and odds and respect for what your doing keeps me from living in fear! If your afraid of a normal breakdown at...

    I was always taught to have just enough run time to get the fluids pumping and the time it m Normally takes to turn the hand choke off and it stay running. Any more idle time than that was unneeded and then move the car by driving. The warm up this way is more consistent or something. Then we...

    No. you are imagining a totally incorrect situation. Parts of the car came in on me. He moved to the center as we got hit on his side, then we got hit from the other side. You should have seen some of the rolls I was in when he was into off road racing. Full roll cages and 5. Point harness...

    First you need to understand, I am no spring Chicken! My first car didn't have electric windows, air conditioning, delayed wipers, radio, rear window defroster, or any of that.

    I don't think all can be driven with a low battery. I remember my husband telling someone that jump starting would do them no good because their low voltage sensor would just keep shutting the car down. He offered instead to take them to the auto parts store to get a new battery. Sorry can't...

    When I got hit in my Hyundai the entire side of the car was torn open. The gas cap and filler tube were however pushed in and still sealed. I won't argue with you as I haven't really looked at one of the new ones without a cap but what I envision is an open to the atmosphere fill pipe after its...

    Buying Advice The evolution of Chinese Tractors

    They are not just stamping their name on things. They are actually paying people to live abroad and oversee the process to ensure no cost cutting measures are snuck in. I have some young family members who are employed in this very capacity. Janet

    Buying Advice The evolution of Chinese Tractors

    This confuses me a little bit. I would think a car with all wheel drive only uses its ability to gain a little extra traction on an as needed basis. BUT a truck, Jeep or ATV would have me thinking the 4 wheel drive could be used to avoid getting stuck or conquer some unruly terrain. To me...

    Yes it has one but like that wheel they keep trying to reinvent it surely does not roll smooth with those square edges. So now what happens when you get hit on the side with that fuel door on and there is no cap underneath to keep fumes, fuel from leaking. Janet

    Cab tractor for around the home?

    Your post has me thinking about the one question my husband never seems to have a clear explanation on. It seems like he somehow knows when the wind will whip, change, whirl or whatever one might call it and he never seems to get covered with the snow. Me on the other hand. I seem to have...

    Cab tractor for around the home?

    This is sort of my husband approach. We usually don't have a need to go out in the middle of a storm, so he just sits it out and when its all over he clears it quickly. When he was still doing plowing and clearing for others I wanted him to have a cab. But he is cheep sometimes and seemed to...

    Tractor died - now trying to troubleshoot - issue seems to be electrical

    I was shown years ago that sometimes you can use a good set of jumper cables to ground the starter directly to the battery and get home in an emergency Might be worth a shot and could prove one of the grounds is bad. Janet

    Should I even think about 2 wheel drive

    You would have an other option. That would be to figure out proper ballast for the job and attachments before starting the task. It has been that simple here for many years and seems to avoid having to go get the tow chains. Admittedly I am not the one that does most of the work with the 2...

    Why have so many farmers had no issues for so many years but all of a sudden you need 4 wheel drive? My guess is my husband is right when he states that too many think they know when they really don't. Not be rude but everything he taught me about proper ballast, direction of travel and why...
