    What’s causing this drip?

    My Kubota M6800 has developed a drip in the front axle. There’s no Kubota mechanic nearby. And I have no mechanical skills or desire to learn. What’s your best guess on the cause? I assume this is gear oil, and I expect a bad seal. It almost looks like it’s coming out of the grease...

    My radiator on my M6800 needs replacement. Now that I’ve disassembled everything, I’m going to replace the water pump, thermostat and hoses and belt. I’m not a mechanic so are there any tips? Bought new gaskets for both the pump and thermostat. Obviously I need to clean the mating...

    Disc Harrow Industrias America 3 point disc

    I’m looking at this Industrias America model 2220 disc. I can’t find any information on this company, nor the weight of this disc. I know this brand is not a name brand, but it looks pretty decent and very heavy. Discs are 22”. I’ll use it for primary tillage of small food plots. Any...

    Disc Harrow Your opinion on this old harrow

    I’m looking for a harrow to disc some remote food plots, that are in tight places. I have a big offset disc that works great, but it’s a pain to transport. I saw this old Deere disc, about 7 feet wide, and it looks in decent condition. Anyone have any knowledge of this Model 100? I also...

    Why is my hydraulic quick connect blowing out?

    My friends big John Deere keeps blowing out the hydraulic hose to implements from one of the rear remotes. The female inside of the remote looks normal, as does the male hose end connector. But when a load is on the line, it blows off the hose. What’s going on? Is it just a bad female or...

    How do you tarp a trailer?

    I have a 16’ tandem axle landscaping trailer with 18” tall sheet metal sides. I frequently haul mulch or landscaping debris. Regular tarps just don’t work well. The grommets tear out as the wind gets under it. Are there aftermarket tarps that hold up and are easy to secure and place...

    Drilling multiple holes in a line.

    I’m building a landscape rake and need to drill 50 3/8” holes spaced two inches apart along a straight line. I plan to use either 1/2” or 3/8” angle or something similar. I have a floor drill press, but it’s not a great one, but adequate. I’ve even thought about buying a mag drill if I...

    Building a landscape rake

    I have a Landpride 35 series rear blade. They sell a rake accessory that uses the main frame, but I want to build one. All I need to build is the rake bar itself. My tractor is a 70 horse, so it needs to be fairly stout. I’ve researched many different builds and can’t decide how to attach...

    Pulling implements with an ATV

    I have a Polaris 550 4 wheeler. I see many people pulling light implements with similar ATVs. Specifically, I was thinking of pulling a drag harrow, say 6 or 7 feet wide and perhaps weighing 150 pounds. My question is does this harm or accelerate wear of the transmission? I also worry...

    I have this steel diesel tank, 36 gallons. I want to design and build something to help me lift it from the bed of my truck (full of diesel) and place it in my shed, just a few feet away. I’ll lift it with my FEL which has a grapple with teeth, which had plenty of power. Basically, I want...

    Hypertherm Powermax 30 Air

    Does anyone have any experience with the Powermax 30 Air? I've read some favorable reviews of it. Having a built in air supply appeals to me. I wish they had this feature in the 40 amp model.

    Question about my Everlast Powerarc 200

    I have an older PA200, bought in 2011. The owners manual was a joke. In reading about the newer models, I see they have a dedicated negative port for 6010. Mine doesn’t have this. It only has one negative port. My question is can 6010 be run on my machine effectively, or should I use...

    Any Camper Advice?

    I’m thinking about buying a used camper (19, or 20 ft) to place on my farm/hunting property. I’d like to spend an occasional night there in the fall and winter, but never when it’s hot. Hopefully talk my wife into joining me. But there’s no electricity, well, or septic system. It’s about...

    Rotary Cutter Help with Rotary Cutter. Clutch issue?

    I have a Woods BB 72 rotary cutter. It wasn’t cutting well last year, and smoking from the clutch, so I dismantled the clutch, found the two disc pads to be shot, so I replaced them. Also cleaned up the metal surfaces. My buddy used it for the first time today, tested it on an area with...

    yellowjacket protection

    I have been preparing my foodplots this week, and encountered 6 nests, and of course, it's always on an uphill where the tractor is bogging down, and there's no acceleration. Plus most of our elevated deer stands have paper wasps nesting, so they need to be sprayed, but climbing into a stand...

    Extended Warranties on a Superduty

    I know the common opinion is to avoid these extended warranties. But I would like to hear specific examples, good and bad.

    i have an 06 F350 diesel SRW longbed crewcab with 230,000 miles. Its mainly my hunting truck and I use it to pull a 25' gooseneck with my Kubota M6800, maybe 6 times a year for local trips of 30 miles max. Total max load of trailer, tractor, implement may run 15,000 pounds, I guess. It pulls...

    Tractor rim question

    I want to get a spare rim and tire for my Kubota front wheel. The rim is a 6 loop, with a R-1 tire. If I buy a rim and tire (minus the center hub), can I use it on either side? Of course the valve stem will be reversed, but that's ok. I guess I can put the 6 nuts on the outside, and change...

    Hauling mixed concrete?

    This is a really dumb question, but I am pouring a 3/4 yard slab sidewalk right by the road. Having a truck delivery will cost $250 due to the small load. I have a mixer, but I'm lazy enough not to want to mix 25 bags of pre mix, and worry if I can mix fast enough. Unfortunately, there...

    Why is my Kubota losing power?

    I have a ten year old M 6800. For over a year, it sporadically loses power, starts chugging and stalling out when under load. It happens more when is hot after being used hard, sometimes seems its worse when fuel level is low, but that may be imagined. Its hard to duplicate. Every time i...

    Question about masonry restoration

    My 100 year old brick house needs some mortar repair. I know the mortar is unlike the modern Portland cement based mortar, as it is much whiter and softer. I assume it's a lime based mortar common years ago, Having read lots about it, I want to experiment to try to match. I know I can get it...

    Tips on using a rear blade to grade a road

    Kubota M 6800 loss of power

    My 10 year old Kubota starts to loose power when the fuel level gets to about half a tank. It begins to run as if it's about out of fuel, but then when I add diesel, it only takes around 5 gallons to fill it to the top. Once I fill it, it runs fine. But run it back down to about half a tank...

    Advice on welding link repair

    Welding a tall deer stand

    Has anyone built a receiver hitch tote for an ATV??

    Transporting a Cat skid steer

    PTO shaft damage on a spreader. Why did this happen?

    Hooked up my cone style fertilizer spreader to my 3 point hitch yesterday. It is fairly new, used last Fall. The telescopic drive shaft connecting the spreader to the PTO was stuck and wouldn't telescope. I couldn't budge it. Figuring it was corroded from sitting a season, I finally had to...
