    How to know when your parents may not want to drive anymore?

    I'm 77 and stopped driving about a year ago because I don't want to injure or kill a family due to my problems. I lost the vision in my right eye about 5 years ago and with it went my depth perception. Then my heart problems became much worse and I have to be on oxygen at all times. I'm very...

    Royal Purple Marine hydraulic oil

    I found what looks like a deal on 2- 5 gal jugs of this Royal Purple marine hydraulic oil and can't find anything about using it for tractor systems. I would use it in my B7800 & RTV 900 Kubotas, has anyone had experience with it?

    $ My differential lock stopped working $

    I've lost 3 of them on my B7800 and I believe that it is mostly caused by poor design in that there is too much linkage and no adjustment. On the HST tractors the pedal is on the left floor and goes under the floor then across the tractor and then back to the axle housing where it connects to a...

    I use an Apple iMac desktop computer and only on this forum I cannot get my posts or replies to properly indent when starting a new paragraph. It will look fine when I proof read it but when I touch the submit reply it just runs on. I know that by hitting the enter key twice or more I can...

    RTV900 replacement seat options

    I have a 2005 RTV 900 with real low hours and always kept covered but the seat, both cushion and back rest, is starting to go to pot. I think for its age this is to be expected and I can get both re-covered by a good upholsterer for $250-$300. This is based on another RTV1140 that I had to have...

    I have a RTV900T,Kubota with the auxiliary hydraulic package and would like to put a 3 pt. hitch on it to mount my Woods RFM42 mower and power the PTO drive with a hydraulic motor.

    I just bought a 2010 RTV 1140CVX and want to change all the fluids and filters.I got the WSM and parts books with it but for the life of me I can't find the capacity of the hydraulic/transmission oil. I've googled and come up with from 3 gal to 5 gal but nothing that seems to be definitive. I...

    head gasket on RTV 900

    I've found an RTV 900 local to me that is in pretty nice shape but the guy says the head gasket is leaking.The story is that the machine was being serviced and the coolant was drained out when a young employee needed to get another machine out so he started this one up to move it then left it...

    Portable generator

    I recently acquired a Baldor 6000 Watt generator powered by a 9.9 hp Hatz diesel engine. It's a 1 cylinder with elec. or recoil start rated at 3600 rpm.It starts right off and seems to run real well but I have never heard of the Hatz engines. Looking on the net I can't find anything negative or...

So far I replaced the trashed Briggs with a Yanmar clone diesel,installed a 2 stage pump and replaced the control valve. The had. cylinder has a small leak around the ram that makes a mess over...

He said that the...

    Broken axle

    I just turned over 1000 hrs on my B7800 so I serviced it all up and put a new pair of front tires on it and took it for a spin to make sure everything was ok. I had the mower on it so I went chasing mustard weeds and at the bottom of a slope I turned right and heard a terrible...

    slow stabilizer

    I have a BH75 backhoe on a B7800 Kubota and the left stabilizer all of a sudden is real slow going down but raises up fine.There is not full travel with the lever,it feels like there is something in the bottom of the valve.I've looked at the drawing in the parts list and don't see how any thing...

    I just bought a B 7510D gear type tractor to use mainly to run a chipper.Everything seems to work well until I decelerate while running the chipper,then it starts a rythmic loud clicking noise that gets worse if you depress the clutch or shift the pto to neutral.It does not do this with out any...

    Backhoe Backhoe attachment from KPX

    Has anyone tried the three point backhoe attachment that KPX is advertising? The price sure seems right.I don't need a real stout hoe or I would go to a traditional frame mount.I want something for my B-7800 Kubota that will be fairly quick to change out. Thanks Jim
