    Wider wheels/radials for M7040/M7060 Kubota now easier. FYI

    Are the wider from tires the same diameter as the original tires?

    Tree planting auger size?

    Our tree plantings use the protection tubes to save the seedlings from deers. They stay on for the first few years until the trees are 6 ft or so to give them the best chance for survival. We have about 90 percent survival rate on our plantings. The evergreens seedlings don't use tree shelters...

    Hyd quick disconnect

    There is a tool that will do it although I don't have the link. Someone will likely tell us. Had same issue today and resolved it by loosening a fitting

    Tractor assisted tree felling.

    I have rented a manlift a few times to take down branches and remove tall trees by topping them. I rented the big type of 4 wheel drive and 4 wheel steer type of lift and they are easy to operate and very safe. I bunched a lot of the tree trimming/removal together and rented for a weekend like...

    Tractor ran fine, restarted normally, then died & won't start

    I would check starter with a cable from a battery and if ok then look for why it is not getting current when turning the key. Isolate the lock out switches one at the time until you find the faulty one

    RTV - X1100C

    I found the plow shoes not to be worth the money. They dig in on softer grounds and are not needed on pavement

    RTV - X1100C

    I have the RTV x1100c 2020 with MS tires and lights front and rear. Installed the Boss V Plow myself for a deal at the time at 2800. Works great and have not needed chains so far with snowfalls up to 1 ft or so. The protective screen is prone to catch stuff between the load bed and the screen...

    Bucket/ thumb wood splitter

    That would work on my Kubota KX33 excavator
  15. m7040


    That is good that the F's are good around trees. My plantings are in rows of trees with spacing between rows of 8 to 10 ft and trees spaced about 6 to 8 ft apart. Mow around 6000 of those trees a few times a year to keep the weeds down. The ZD is quick reacting to get into spaces between trees...

    For my purposes the ZD 331 has the agility to turn around the tree plantings that is hard to do with the F machines. No doubt the F's will outperform on more open areas. The suspension seats on the ZD1511 sounds good and can possibly be backfitted to the ZD331. How comfortable is the air...

    6013 vs 7014 vs 7018

    I have about 250 lbs of welding rods that I got from the end of a project that I am wondering how useful they may be for my small scale farm shop. They are E6010, E6011, E6013 and M7018. What are the most useful rods for my purpose?

    MF 203 not starting

    The old MF 203 industrial tractor was sitting for a few years. Wanted to bring it back to life and it would not start. Changed the fuel filters and the fuel lift pump and bled the system and checked for fuel flow at the inlet to the injection pump. Next loosened the inlet to the fuel injectors...

    Property line and neighbor mowing spraying

    I have an issue with neighbor mowing on my side of the property line for a distance of about 2000 ft. I guess he wants it to look more manicured like his estate is. This is a rural farm with a tree planting along the property line on my side. Told him to stop and I put up tee stakes and fence...

    Shipping container building

    Out driving today saw someone building with two 40 ft shipping containers and a roof on top between the containers. Looks like the spacing between the containers was 30 or so ft and the roof was prefabricated tubing. Not sure what the plan is for the roof covering. Would love to hear from others...

    RTV 1100 Transmission problem

    The transmission slips badly when the oil gets warmed up. There must be some internal leak inside the transmission when the oil gets warm. At cold temperatures the transmissions performs normally. I may have over stressed it pulling a trailer because it was after that it became evident. Before...

    Have been looking to get a mini x such as the Kubota KX033-4. Would like a new one if possible to use on the small farm here in Maryland. The list with a few buckets is about 60 K. Not sure what a realistic selling price would be. Kubota has 60 months with Zero interest or discounts for cash...

    Tractors and wood! Show your pics

    Store wood in a number of places. Here is one of them. You can barely see the tractor in the back with a load of wood. The UTV is needed to stand on the reach high enough to stack up 10 ft

    Finished up my firewood for 2020-21

    agree the longer I think about a project the more it changes. Usually for the better. Doing splitting where the tree was felled makes sense to me and loading the UTV directly as it comes off the splitter avoids some double handling. I am using multiple ways of storing the wood. Here is a picture...

    Type A automatic transmission fluid

    I have an old Massey Ferguson tractor where the hydraulic system for the loader as well as the power steering calls for type A transmission fluid according to the original manuals. Can it be substituted with Dexdron III fluid?

    Miller Big Blue 400 amp DC welder

    Got this trailer mounted welder with an air cooled diesel engine about 10 years ago and have not started it since. So decided to see if it would start. Installed a fresh battery and pushed the start button. Wouldn't you know it barely turn over the engine before it started. Runs like a top with...

    Landpride blades won't come off

    I want to sharpen the cutter blades on my 72 inch Landpride bush hog but the blades mount on a large stud attached to a disk about 24 inch diameter. There is no visible way to unscrew the blades that I can see. Do I unbolt the center hub and take the whole assemly off or is there another way?

    big stones to move with little bx, looking for leverage ideas.

    You will be surprised how big a boulder you can move by pushing it. This boulder was dug out of the ground and then pushed up a ramp to level ground and further pushed over in a fence line to the property

    Ballast m7040 cast iron wheel weights

    I am trying to mount the three wheel weights on each wheel but find that they are too heavy to lift by myself. Wondering if someone has devised a way to handle this via some simple rigging device?

    Rock Digging

    Rocks are like icebergs you dont know how big it is until you dig it out. This one was huge and the FEL could not lift it so had to push it out of the hole on a ramp and then over to where it is now. Not that I used a 4-one bucket for excavation and pushing the rock

    Solenoid motor control valve

    Talked to the dealer about where to hook up the hydraulic winch and he showed me where there is a short hose that continues from the FEL valve back to the three point valve on the right lower side of the tractor. He recommended to take this hose off and install the new spool valve in that loop...

    Electrical outlet, no mating plug

    Attached is a pic of the 12 volt electrical outlet behind the seat in the cab of my M7040. The outlet is for accessories and one terminal is hot all the time, one is ground, and one is hot when the key is turned. May be this is a common outlet in Japan but no one here knows where to get the...

    Winches Hydraulic winch hook up

    I am going to install the Mile Marker Hydraulic winch on the 7040. It will come with a spool valve that will protect for full pressure from the pump as recommended by Winchplus. Will install it on the front instead of the brush guard and high enough to be able to use the FEL bucket as a wedge to...

    grease nipples broken off

    polyurethane cutting edge

    Installed the poly cutting edge for the snow plow. It is 8 ft by 8 inches wide and 1.5 iches thick and blots on top of the existing cutting edge. Forecast is for snow tomorrow so will be ready to test it out. Should be preserve the pavement and minimize plow damage to the grounds
