    trying to price a trailer before the auction

    When I was looking for a trailer back in 2012-14 I went to several auctions that included different trailers. I was very disappointed to find trailer plugs cut off, tires shot, non functional lighting, brakes, decking that needed replacing etc. I hoped they would go for cheap knowing the amount...

    LS XR4145HC starting problem....

    The ground cable may be corroded internally where you cant see it. Try connecting a jumper cable from battery to frame and try to start again. Could also be the positive cable with internal breakdown.

    new (to me) email scam

    I get emails about my amazon, email and paypal accounts being frozen. I never open them. I suspect it is a scam and just delete them. I do log into each of those secured accounts (but not from the emails someone sent) to check if there are any notifications but there never is any problem.

    Anybody get Shocked After ordering?

    When you agreed to the purchase and made your down payment did your receipt show the full agreed price. If so you should be able to get your tractor at that price. They can't add more to an agreed contract price. Contact an attorney.

    Needed bigger FEL

    If your Kubota has the standard quick attach bucket you can buy a larger bucket (wider and taller). The problem may be that your loader hydraulics may not be able to lift it depending on the weight. Quickattach is one company that sells larger buckets. I'm sure there are many others too.

    The Front Porch posts

    I check new posts daily and prior to 3-4 days ago the Groan Part Quatre did show up. I would then copy or download (save) the memes. I never had to go to front porch to find the groan thread new memes before. Was the Groan thread recently moved to front porch?

    The Front Porch posts

    I've noticed that in the past few days that anything posted in Front Porch don't show up when I click on new posts. I have to manually switch to FP to see newest posts. Did something change?

    3cyl Diesel Not 'Warming Up'

    In the first post you stated diesel got into the oil. Has that contaminated oil and filter been changed yet? I'm not sure if that would make a difference on running.

    Why was my post deleted?

    Do I have a bad battery?

    Fuel filter been replaced lately. If so, then have you checked your glow plugs to ensure they are working. Sounds like your battery is good if it cranks over easily just not enough heat in the cylinders to fire.

    Truck & Trailer ideas to tow 14,000 and be under 26,000 pounds

    So the GCVWR of truck and trailer is 29,700. Its been many years since I took math in school but I think 29,700 is greater than 26,000. Many states go by GCVWR not actual weight and would require a CDL to operate your truck/trailer.

    Bobcat 843 door lock

    The chain & padlock will do for now. Unbolt the latch & lock assy. from inside and take to a locksmith. They can change the tumblers and make you a couple keys then bolt it back in.

    Sometimes people in the south forget where they're living

    We did that one year on a trip to visit the inlaws in Florida. Inlaws took us to a flea market. It was 50 deg so we wore short sleeve shirts and shorts. Everyone else there had heavy clothes and jackets and looked at us like we were nuts.

    Need advice on tie rod end removal

    Get one of these kits. Available on Amazon for under $22. I wouldn't heat anything. I've seen guys that broke the tie rod hole or steering knuckle from heating and hitting with a hammer.

    Sounds like your differential lock is stuck. With both rear wheels locked they tend to push in a straight line forward reducing steering by the front wheels.

    need crosover chart or something to be able to cross my kioti cx to something else.

    Welcome to TBN....... Are you sure its a CX2510? Only Kioti tractors I see are for CK2510 or CS2510 which have Daedong 1.4L and Shibaura 1.1L engines respectively. Don't see any CX models.

    What was your first TBN post, ever?

    My first posts / replies seem to be missing. I joined in Feb 2005 yet the earliest of my posts I could find was 2 months later in April. I know I replied / posted right after joining but can't remember. I suffer from CRS. I do remember my early posts had to do with the tractor I had bought the...

    Have any strange delivery experiences being rural?

    For us, UPS, FedEx, and USPS have been great for many years. Always gave a Xmas card with cash to regular drivers. Larger packages are left on front porch or by garage door. Being retired I usually meet the drivers outside to get my packages when I see the truck pull up. I think my regular USPS...

    2015 Silverado 2500 battery/trailer brake issue

    I have a 2016 2500HD and had the same service trailer brake message. Mine happened at only 20K miles. I found on the web it is caused either by the trailer brake controller located in the rear (usually mounted above the spare tire) or a bad ground. Mine was a bad ground wire to the frame. I...

    Towing 6 ton dump trailer with 6065

    If I was towing your 6 ton dump trailer with your tractor on steep hills I would definitely use a brake controller. 12K behind your tractor could easily push you down a hill which can cause a loss of control just as it could going up hill if you lose traction.

    XR3037H RPM up and down after a few minutes of operation.

    The difference is the XR3037HC (3000) series uses a Shibaura engine which was designed for regen every 5 hours. The newer 4100 series has the LS engine designed for regen about every 50 hours.

The store had already removed all Jif...

    Some of the older LS tractors have the Shibaura engine. The owners manual says normal regen cycle occurs about every 5 hours (+ or -). Newer LS tractors have an LS engine and normally does a regen about every 50 hours.

    Used tractor. Title?

    And if the owner financed and paid off the tractor he will have a lien release and should give you a copy with the bill of sale.

    Cummins fault code advisor is a downloaded app for my android phone. I'm sure there should be other available downloads for other phones. Do a search on your phone for Cummins fault code advisor.

    XR3037H RPM up and down after a few minutes of operation.

    Sorry, I missed your reply. Myself and the OP have older model LS tractors with the Shibaura engine. Yours has the LS engine. Shibaura engine regens every 5 hours, LS is supposed to regen every 50 hours.

    I'm not familiar with your Nexlink or how to set it up. I use an ELM plugged into the port (bluetooth connects it to my phone) and used a program Cummins Fault advisor (free download). It will read a lot of functions and most show a numerical value which I can take a snapshot and download on my...
