    Finally Need My Warranty and LS Is Not There! BEWARE!

    I may be wrong about my dealer. My XR4150 has an S173 with F03 code. Bad temp sensor. I called my dealer, I thought that he could send his tech out with parts. I was told a visit would be $300. I called today and was told that they thought I wanted someone to pickup my tractor for repair...

    Ford Superduty 6.2 questions?

    I had a F250 2014 crew cab, 6.2. Great truck, saved my life in head on with a drugee. It had 143,000 and still running great. Just purchased a 2019 F250, 6.2, 6 speed, 125,000 miles. Love it. Enough power for me. I agree on the shift points. I got used, due to saving $35,000 over new.

    XR4150 CODES S173 F03 AND S173 F13

    I am getting these two codes. I think temp sensors, but which one. I think it has 3. Runs fine, but will not regen. I hate to haul it 60 miles to dealer.

    New Tractor Sales Are Declining

    Last year purchased a new utv. Only one that was in my range within 100 miles. This year my friend had problem finding one, got used. My tractor dealer has LS, Branson, TYM, Bobcat and maybe others on the lot. He seems to be moving a lot, but not sure when you compare what's on the lot.

    Considering New Tractor

    It is not licensed as a cummins or inspected by them. Great engine. Maybe better than the small cummins. Like calling all mowers a Bushhog.

    Considering New Tractor

    It is not a cummins, great engine, built in same factory, by same people, with some of the same ideas. But it is not a cummins generator engine. But most likely better.

    Second Cutting?

    My hay guy is done for the year here in Alabama. He has some really good hay this year. Very dry here right now. Friend in Arkansas wanted another cutting but no rain. They are done with the year with not as much hay.

    Should a new tractor come with a full tank of gas?

    My LS came with about 1/2 a tank of fuel, tires filled, free labor to install the 3rd function, 3rd function kit at cost and one cap.

    Why no Ecoboost in the F250?

    As was said, 'What about the 7.3?" If ford thought the echo boast was the answer to today's towing, why come out with the 7.3 gas? Old school engine, said to put out as much power as some diesels. No over head cams, no turbos. I have read better mileage than the 6.2. Said to be one of the best...

    I have an LS XR4150, open station, 2 remotes with 3rd function. LOVE IT! I have the 2100 backhoe. You must have one detent remote for the backhoe. You only want one. The 3rd function can be added later, but it is a must have for a grapple. I have a hyd top link. Easy to take on and off for...

    Joining LS Club

    Hopefully they have the BH dumping the fluid directly into the rear end and not thru the spools. It helps to not heat the fluid up.

    Thoughts on this guy’s experiences

    I have the XR4150 with the backhoe. Love it. But only use it for what it is designed for. I dig small stumps and dig dirt. Know the limits of all equipment. Had a friend run a mower over a lot of stumps, way fast, bent stuff, lost pens, broke stuff on tractor. Mower was fine. You can...

    Backhoe Vs. 12000 LB Mini EX

    A backhoe still can move dirt a short distance. A small mini ex is great for water lines. Not as much for stumps. As far as hauling, you can over load a 3/4 ton real fast. I had a 3/4 with a 14k trailer. Could only pull about 12,500 legal.

    I knew of a dozer that was 25 years old, but low hours. Always kept inside. He wanted new price, but was sold for a lot less. The major problems where all the seals started to leak from drying out. If it had been used more, it might have been in better shape. I also have a dozer and make...

    Loading hay = round bales

    I would love to borrow that trailer two days a year. I did find a 24 ft. BB with 5000 lb axles for $5,000. Says it was only pulled one time. It does have a dove tail, but I am thinking I might get 8 on the bottom and 3 or 6 on the top. A lot better than 4 at a time.

    Loading hay = round bales

    On the current trailer, we load end to end. 4 in the load. trailer has sides. On a new trailer, I hope to haul 2 wide and one on top of each 2. maybe 12 to 14 at a time. But if it has fenders sticking up, I can't get 2 wide between them. With a deck over, it is easy. I was wondering the best...

    Loading hay = round bales

    I am thinking about buying a new trailer. I use a 16 BP now. It has rails on the sides. I get 4 rolls at a time. I hope to get a newer 3/4 ton PU this fall. I am thinking about a 20 or 24 foot equipment trailer. I would love to have a deck over but the prices are high. If I get a 24 ft BB...

    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...

    New MT335

    First regen may have been from the tractor being started at the dealership and transporting it. A lot of starts, short runs, and stops. No time to heat up. No way to know how many customers wanted to start it.

    How many brands does your dealer sale?

    I know that Deere dealers only sale Deere. When I purchased my LS 3 years ago, they only sold LS. It was a small dealer. They have grown. They now sale 5 brands of tractors, moved into bigger shop and sales. They also sale mini exs, trailers, mowers, attachments, etc. They still support LS...

    New Purchase

    If you are going to handle roll hay, you have to be able to lift and stack them. So the loader lift height and weight is needed. List the attachments that you will need and then match them with the tractor hp and size. Most small tractors will do most work, but the ability to stack hay is...

    City kids do not leave keys in vehicles. . . It’s different out here...

    I take keys out of tractors and toys so kids don't turn them on and run the battery down. Even if they don't take them, still damage. I had one guy that I let use my tractor. It was an old one that you had to warm up the glow plugs by turning the switch to the left. He used and returned it...

    JD 450C Dozer?

    I work for a JD construction deal and the salesman told me he was about to trade. So I got it about the trade in value. Great deal. The service manager had it hauled in to the shop and checked everything out for me at no charge. Any repairs I do myself and parts have a discount. I just need...

    JD 450C Dozer?

    I paid about $27,000 six years ago for my JD450J. It only had 2200 hours on it. I have been offered over $35,000 for it. It is just a great size machine. Deere is great on having parts, but high.

    Flail Mowers

    I have a 6' ditch bank flail. It is the only thing I have to cut my ditches with or some of the banks. I also use it to mow under some of my trees with low limbs.(my wife does not want cut) I still have my 5' RC and use it most of the time. I find the flail mows slower. That may be to what...

    Ideas for Leveling Dirt and Seeding for Grass with Tractor

    I like to use my cultipacker before and after I seed. Makes and good seed bed and pushes the seed into the ground. But a seed drill is the best, but too much money for me to own one.

    High fuel cost and wood

    It has not been that long ago that I put gas in my car, $5 at a time. And still see a few people at country store coming in and buying $3 to $10 in gas at a time. Even see people paying in coins. And you may first want to help, but you notice that they are smoking $5 a pack cigarettes.
