    NH Workmaster 45 with starting problems

    Our tractor was being used to brush hog the field. It began to show a little rise in temp so my BIL drove it back to the barn to clean the radiator screen - it was covered with dust and five debris. At the time he parked it, it was running just fine. He turned off the tractor and cleaned it and...

    TC40D Hydraulic Problems

    We have a TC40D with FEL and BH. We were using the tractor when, suddenly, with no warning, the FEL quit working. No response to the control at all. There does not seem to be a broken line and no fluid spill was seen. I tried to back the tractor out from where I was working since the rake on...

    looking for input on new backhoe

    We are looking at substantial repairs on our NH TC40D with FEL/BH It seems JD no longer makes the 110 and Kubota no longer makes the L39 So, as tractor backhoes go, I would rather one with a "turn around" seat instead of a separate seat for the hoe. I do not want a 3-pt hoe. Still looking in...

    need new trailer tires .....

    On the way home with the tractor on the trailer we lost a tire. Didn't have a spare. It took us a while, but we ended up pulling the other front tire off the trailer and, after re positioning the tractor, headed home with tires only on the rear axle. We were 45 miles from home and drove no...

    Got a call ... and found a mess

    We have a NH TC40D with a front loader and a BH. It usually lives at my place, but it is actually shared with my in-laws (my father-in-law actually paid for it).

    Fuel getting into the oil

    We have a NH TC40D with a front loader and backhoe. I seems like we may be getting diesel in the crankcase oil - not totally sure, but when we changed the oil today it had far more in there then it should have - and it smelled a bit like diesel. We have also noticed that the fuel does not see...

    The power steering was working just fine. We were using the tractor and the power steering had two problems. It seemed to quit steering then it blew what I think is the return line from the steering piston. It is the line that has a hose clamp on it. We re-secured the line and tightened the...
