    JD 1025r canopy

    I have a friend that purchased a new 1025r with belly mower, loader and canopy. In stock, took 3 weeks to deliver it. When they got, it has 32,6 hours on it. Not happy! And the canopy is so tall it will not go into their shed. Can anyone tell me how tall the tractor is with canopy? She...

    I have an XR4150, joy stick lift is fine, but the curl is very hard to move. It no long returns back to neutral. I looked at the joy stick yesterday and found every thing clean. I looked under the tractor and everything looked fine. I did not have to time to remove the cable from the...

    John Deere relife program

    There is a program in Deere construction equipment. It is powertrain relife. They replace the Transmission, engine, axles and other parts on the equipment and give it a 3 year warranty. With construction being used as hard as it is and the cost of new equipment, it looks to be a good...

    Not Market share - Member viewing

    I did look to see if I could find any solid information on market share. Could not. So I thought that I would show a little member share on tractorbynet. I only picked some of the tractors. I added LS because I own an LS. Tractor Posts Percent...

    Horse people- manure spreader

    I just purchased a used millcreek manure spreader, model 50. I understand that it has not been made for about 20 years. I can get parts from Millcreek, but I think they may be a little high. I am needing a PTO Shaft. It has a 1 in yoke and is about 60 in long. About $266 from millcreek plus...

    Problem yesterday on my XR4150, still less than 200 hours. While I was subsoiling part of the pasture, it would not say in 4wd. It did a good job of pulling it as long as it was in 4wd. But about every 5 to 7 minutes, it would go out of 4wd and the one wheel would spin. Stop and push the...

    Air Compressor on Tractor?

    I was interested to know if anyone had mounted a small air compressor and tank on a tractor. It would be nice to blow out the radiator or the air cleaner in the middle of mowing the pasture. I would think the biggest question would be where to mount a tank. Maybe in front of the grill. It...
