    NH Workmaster 45 with starting problems

    Thought I'd post an update - due to extenuating circumstances, we were not able to get back to trying to fix the tractor until yesterday. In the meantime, my BIL has been "jumping" the starter to use the tractor. We replaced the key switch and it did not help. We ended up installing a push...

    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...

    Is Brian still around?

    I found myself in Williston today and took these pics at the RK Assembly Plant As you can see - they do have RK tractors and one of the RK mobile trucks. In fact, with that truck and trailer it would be simple for them to go and get Gunny's tractor and bring it back to see what is wrong.

    12 volt waterproof connector

    The connector on the back of many vehicles that people use to connect their boat lights to their vehicle seems to be waterproof enough to work year after year ... yes, I mean the 4-pole trailer connector. They also make that in a two-pole version For what you want, this would be waterproof...

    Where are RK Tractors Made?

    as opposed to Bringing the assembled tractors 30 miles to the store would certainly be better than shipping them in from 836 miles away Thank you for the info on the pedals. The NH TC40D also uses the two pedal system. I have also seen tractors with a single rocker pedal and have used...

    Workmaster 45 PTO question

    The output shaft appears to be #6 and the diagram only shows one bearing (#8) although there are two additional bearings (#2 and #4) on the PTO shaft (#3) Would all these bearings need to be replaced? We have not removed the PTO to do a visible inspection. Is there any other way to determine...

    NH Workmaster PTO Question

    We have a NH Workmaster 45 2W Gear Drive that makes a slight noise when the PTO is engaged. The noise is not very loud and almost sounds like a slight "whistle".

    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). My BIL needed it so I made sure it was working and ready to leave my place. They came and picked it up on a Wed. My FIL called me on...

    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...

    Power Steering just quit on TC40D

    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...

    TC 40D HST 4WD Front Pinion Shaft

    Seems we need to replace the front pinion shaft for the 4wd. Ours is stripped where the drive shaft collar slides on. The front wheels/axle seem to work just fine in 2wd. We are hoping that there is no damage inside the front differential - it has been suggested that the shaft stripped from...

    We started having problems with our starter on the New Holland 40D. It would click and click and finally start. What a pain. We took the started off and had it serviced/repaired. He did find some problems and fixed it. When we first put it back on it seemed like it would be fine ..... then...

    Lighting for the pole barn

    I would be inclined to spring for something like this Tasco 100 ft. 12/3 SJTW 10-Light Plastic Cage Light String - Yellow They cost $150 at Home Depot but, they take standard 150 watt light bulbs and come ready to hang and just plug in. To me, the ease of use and safe operation would be worth...

    French Drain Question

    As far as extending the drain goes, as long as the existing portion is collecting the water from the needed area and all you want ti to dump that water to a different spot you can extent with "solid" pipe - pipe without all those holes in it - corrugated is fine - and that way you probably could...

    TC 40D starter problems

    On our TC40D we have a starter problem. Sometimes it will only "click". After several attempts with the key, it will start. We thought "solenoid". We pulled the starter and took it to someone we know who has fixed starters and alternators for 40+ years (it is his business) and he did find...

    This is the cylinder that lifts the boom not a bucket cylinder. On this particular BH the bottom of the boom is connected to the frame/support by a large pin that uses a bolt to hold it in place.
