    Can't find a new rider

    My Snapper LT200 riding mower finally gave up the ghost after 20 years. I like the new Snapper SPX line because they have a fabricated deck that is 10 gauge steel. But, they are not to be found. I searched a 200 mile radius and no one has any. One dealer told me that he ordered them last year...

    Temperature gauge

    The temperature gauge on my NH TN65 goes to full tilt with 1 -2 minutes of a cold start. There are no signs of overheating from the radiator. I'm thinking a faulty sending unit. Any thoughts?

    Can Am Outlander 450

    Walking the fence lines through the woods has started to take it's toll on this aging body. So I'm in the market for an ATV. After some research, I'm leaning towards the Can Am Outlander 450. Anyone have any experience with it? Feed back would be appreciated.

    Is there such an animal?

    Looking for gloves that are waterproof, warm and will stand up to outdoor work. I've used the leather gloves from HF, mostly when handling hay, but once they get wet, the misery factor goes up. Internet searches brought up some, but the reviews were not favorable. Anyone have good experiences?

    Drill Bits

    I bought a set of Dewalt drill bits thinking they would work well. Boy, was I wrong. Had a hard time drilling through 2 x 4's and some even broke with little pressure. Does anyone have recommendations for a quality set that won't break the bank?

    I was bush hogging with the Ford 4000 this afternoon when I think the clutch tanked. I pushed in the clutch, put it in reverse, let the clutch out and her a pop. Tractor started backing up, but when I pushed the clutch in again, nothing. Tractor kept backing up so I had to cut the tractor off...

    Anyone watch "Yellowstone" on the Paramount network?

    It has strong language but **** it's good. Stars Kevin Costner as a ranch owner in Montana.

    I tought I was retired....

    I've been officially retired form my 9 to 5 job about 6 years. Moved to the farm full time. Before we retired, we used to come down on weekends and get everything done. Now there aren't enough hours in a day. How is that possible?

    Drone suggestion

    I'm thinking about getting a drone. Just today, a cow had a calf and would not let me get near her. A drone with remote video would have made that easier. Anyway, anyone have ideas, recommendations, suggestions, negative feedback, etc. on drones. Looking to keep it under $500. Thanks in...

    Tie rod boots

    I had a guy replace the tie rod ends on my Ford 4000. He did not put the boots on. Having him redo it is not in the cards. Is there any way to place something on to replace the boots short of taking the tie rods apart?

    How are you dealing with the drought?

    We have not had any appreciable rain for the last two months. Fields are brown with little grass. We usually don't start feeding hay until late November. I'm afraid we will have to start much sooner this year. How are you dealing with this?

    Ford 4000 engine surging

    Been doing a lot of bush hogging lately. Yesterday, as usual, I fueled her up and checked fluids before starting out. She had been running fine prior to this. After about an hour, the engine started surging. Would speed up for a few seconds, then slow back down, did this about every minute or...

    Got my road in

    Finally decided to go ahead with the crushed concrete road. Grader graded the red clay road bed. Took 15 dump truck loads of 16 tons each. Vibratory roller followed. Added ditches on sides with 2 pipes in low spots to divert water. Came out pretty smooth. Waiting for rain to see how it...

    Crushed Concrete for driveway

    Has anyone used crushed concrete for their driveway? I've got a contractor telling me it works as well as 57s. It's $300 for a 15 ton load vs. $500 for the 57s. I'll need at least 12 loads. He's doing a major overhaul including using a road grader to get down to hard pan, vibratory...

    Found this today...

    While searching for a missing cow in a remote corner of the farm, I came across this. Guess I'd never been in that spot before. Anyone have a guess as to year/make? Would make a heck of a project car! :laughing:

    I knew I shouldn't have said anything,,,,

    On another thread about frost proof faucets, I extoled the virtues of a Mirafount cattle waterer. I mentioned how mine has never frozen, even in the coldest weather. I guess I jinxed my luck. Checked on one of the waterers yesterday and it was frozen solid. I guess I'll have to wait for the...

    Generator light

    This is a weird one. Replaced the battery on my '69 5000 yesterday. Now the gen light gets brighter the more I rev the engine. Shouldn't it be the other way around. Any thoughts, ideas on how to fix? Thanks in advance.

    Where's the coolant going?

    The coolant in my '69 4000 is going somewhere, but I can't find where. It has a relatively new radiator, water pump, & thermostat. There is no water in the oil, nor oil in the water. Don't see any signs of leaks. I have to put in about a gallon after using it 4 -5 hours, filling it only to a...

    Tire popped off rim

    About three weeks ago I had a flat in my filled rear tire, 16.9 x 30. I had the local tire place come out and replace the tube and put a boot in the tire. At the time he stated that the bead on the tire was very rusted and the tire would need to be replaced soon. He even went so far as to say...

    What's with the WWE smack down links?

    There have been several posts lately trying to get you to click on a WWE smack down link. They are posted with misleading thread titles and forums. I'm assuming they're some sort of spam or virus and have not opened them. Anyone experienced an issue with them? If so, is there a way to report...

    Saw a beaver in the pond today....

    Drove down to the back pond (about 10 acres) this afternoon and saw something BIG swimming across the far end. Pulled out the binoculars and saw that it was a beaver. Watched it for a while and it came close to where I was. I stood there waiting with my .22 when my wife (yes she was with me)...

    Another electric fence question...

    Does anyone have any experience using a mix of electric and barbed wire for cattle? I'm thinking of using electric on wires 1, 3 & 5, with 2 & 4 barbed. Any thoughts or feedback would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Water on Flywheel

    Had a problem with the starter not kicking in on my 1969 Ford 5000. Heard a clicking when I turned the key. Voltage was good. Took starter off and found rust on the bendix which was stuck in place. Looked inside where the bendix engages the flywheel and saw that there were water droplets on the...

    LS Ads

    I just picked up the latest issue of TractorHouse Southeast edition yesterday. TractorHouse is a publication that is all ads for tractors and related equipment. I found it odd that there wasn't a single ad for an LS tractor in the entire issue of 240 pages. No manufacturer, dealer, or private...
