    2016 JD 4052 Emission Problem

    Helping a neighbor. Stop light on the dash came on indicating that the exhaust was sooted up and the operator initiated cleaning process (found in the owner's manual) was unable to effect the repair. As defined in the manual apparently the soot is of sufficient volume to cause the engine...

    Neighbor has a very low hour, used for moving hay and mowing, 2016 JD 4052 and the "STOP" light came on. Got out the manual and it said the exhaust needed cleaning. Recommendation was to send the tractor to the dealer for repair. Decided to get out the manual and do it themselves. The self...

    T474 Cab owners

    Wondering how 2020 or higher T474HC instrument panels show engine temperature. I have a friend with a Branson 4815 and research is telling me that the first cab versions of this Branson model used the TYM instrumentation with the analog type tachometer prior to implementing their fully digital...

    Poor, Poor Parts Support

    Bought a new MT2 25s in January. Noticed the left combination stop/blinker/sidelight unit had bugs in the red stop light LEDs. Called dealer and ordered warranty replacement......still waiting. Called dealer several times.....he's still waiting too. Any of you have problems getting parts?

    I was over at the local (30 miles away) LS dealer the other day and picked up my filters for my new MT2 25S first oil/filter change. They had the "Filter Pak" containing air filter, fuel filter, engine oil filter, hydrostatic filter, and main THD filter all in a nice neat box.....$52. I had...

    Cold Weather Pre-heat and other questions

    I have the 1" thick, comprehensive Owner's Manual but this isn't covered specifically. The manual covers the fact that On position is also Pre-heat position, and mentions an indicator in the dash panel but not this specific question. My precious tractors had a dash "Pre-heat" symbol illuminate...

    Flow restrictors

    Decided to put a cylinder on my drum mower to lift the tip. Had a 2" diameter cylinder on a Ford 3910, ⅜" hoses. Thought about a fixed restrictor fitting but couldn't find much and what I did find was really pricy. I decided on a variable 2 way needle valve from All States Ag. Parts for like...

    Kuhn drum mower blade size and shape.

    Curious about the Z1100020 blade used on the PZ series of Kuhn drum mowers. Wondering why it has a hump in the middle when most all other blades for discs and drums have flat blades? Additionally, curious about 3 dimensions: Dia of hole, width, and length. Reason for the question is that...

    AC Intermittent Operation

    Bought new 6530 in Sept. 2007. This spring I was readying the tractor for summer haying season. AC was acting funny so I started paying attention to what it was doing and the compressor clutch engagement was erratic. Several things could cause this so in looking in my manual for electrical...

    Cleaning Willows out of a pond. Got all the growing ones packed up and hauled off and decided to see if I could get this one out of the water. Stump is adjacent to it for an idea as to diameter and location and it was too much for me to do anything with getting it down due to it's size and...

    R1 vs R3 or 4 Traction

    If there ever was a question, I have proven it on my 2400. Bought it with R4s, replaced with R3s, and now have R1s on the rear and traction is night and day and I removed a pair (had 2 pair now only 1) of rear weights I used on the 1s and 3s. Other thing is that I can run 10 psi (for a softer...

    Slow Initial Steering Response (Hydro)

    Curing Hay

    I'm scrapping out a bunch of bales of Sorghum-Sudan hay I baled in the May-June time line here in N. Tx.. It appears that once again, I didn't get it dry enough and it developed some mold. I realize that SS doesn't pack as tight as grass but it does have to sit out; do not have adequate...

    Disaster turned into an asset

    Teff Hay

    Was at the farm store yesterday and saw a skid full of Teff hay seed. Got on the www this AM and read up on it. The results seem to speak for themselves in terms of a summer hay crop and volume. What I see as a mountain to climb is their recommendation (Teff www) for planting. Don't know...

    Hay Supplies

    Glad we had a bumper crop this year. Guys on the coast could use it. Only caveat is the shipping cost and logistics of getting it there. Don't know how to advise. Maybe the Texas Cattlemen's Association: Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers It didn't load the first time I tried it so if it...

    Early planting season

    Just touched base with Farmer's Almanac. For my area, this early spring weather is continuing and looks like I will be planting at the end of this month rather than end of April as usual. Rain is forecast +2 for April and average temp of 70. Sorghum-Sudan needs a 55F average soil temp and we...

    JD 4052, 300 Post Hole Digger, 9x36 Auger

    Never dug a hole with a hydro and JD Ind PTO, 4010, 4020, and 4230, but none were hydros. Gear box is 3.5:1 making the auger turn at a comfortable 154 rpm if you go all the way to 540 on the drive which I probably wont. How does the 300 series hold it's position with a one person operation...

    Turf tires on smaller tractors

    Greetings, Thinking about putting turf tires on my 2400. Currently has industrial 6 ply rears and even at 8psig the ride is really rough. Bought an air (built in compressor) seat for it and it helps a lot but need more. Want to find a set of 4 ply Turf Tires (I think) and run them at around...

    Idle curiosity on clutch disc types

    Standard Seat

    Curious about the standard seat offered in the 2016 4052 with cab. It doesn't move up and down like a normal suspension seat.....very smooth....comparable to an air seat yet they offer an air seat as an upgrade. Is the seat a Grammer MSG 65 (possibly modified for JD aka cosmetic changes) or...

    Confusion on crankcase capacity for 4052R, 52 hp Yanmar turbo.

    Specifications sheet says 1.4 qt as the crankcase capacity............duhhhhhhhh! Gotta be a misprint. My riding mowers use more than that. What should it really be? 1.4 gallons would be more like it or more. My 65 hp Branson uses 2.5 gallons, having 50% more cubes (2.1L vs 3.3L). Thanks, Mark
