    1000 Hours and counting

    I now have over 1000 hrs on my 2003 PT422 Robin. The only 2 problems were a fried voltage regulator and a bad coil. O yes I had to weld and brace the pivot, rollover, lift bar but that was easy. Replaced the battery and tightened a few fittings. I am well satisified with the tractor and...

    More torque for my Power trac?

    I started working on this set up before but at the time I didn稚 have much use for it. I recently have had a couple of jobs where I could have used more pulling power. Just a bit more torque would have made the difference. I know this set up will be controversial and could cause damage to...

    What About An Electric Power Trac?????

    Two speed modification for PT 422/425

    Started work on the two speed modification so thought a new tread would be appropriate. There is not a lot of room here to install 8 outlets from the tram pump. In fact there is not an over abundance of room anywhere in the engine compartment.

    I am starting to build a side mower. I believe this will be the hardest project I have taken on yet. It will most likely be 2 or 3 weeks before finishing. I will post more pics as progress permits but for now does anyone recognize this deck?

    Hydraulic Pumps and Oil Cooler

    As to the best of my knowledge and investigation the only time that hydraulic oil passes through the oil cooler is when the tram motors are running. If someone knows different please let us know how it does or even could. It may be that some of the PTs are set up different but my is a 2003...

    Tires tires and rim for the 422/425

    Has any one found a good place on the net to order tires and/or rims for the 422/425? I would like to have a set of bar tires mounted on rims for winter. It gets muddy her in the winter time and I could use the traction plus the bar tire would shed mud a lot better before I park it. I know...

    Filling in my basement. Using 10cu bucket, mini h

    I don’t know what is considered light material but the 422 seems to handle a full load of dirt in the light material bucket. The box blade does a very good job as well. It is really handy being able to tweak the tilt at will and with ease. I Will have some pics of that later.

    Lubrication of the main lifting bolts

    I removed several of the bolts in the front lifting mechanism of my 422 and found that some were dry and some were getting lubricant to them. I use a silicon lithium spray. I am not satisfied with this method as it seems to take a lot of spraying to get little lubricant to the bolts. I was...

    Draft Controll

    I am told that the larger pts have draft control. Has any one added this to their 425 or 422? Does anyone have any info about this? I am looking to do this but don't want to start from scratch. I mow some pond slopes and I have to manually put weight on the tractor to keep it from wanting to...

    Pond Rake

    I need to design and build a pond rake. I would like it to extend about 15 feet out from the PT. I think it needs to be 4 feet wide and the teeth about 2 feet deep. I have in mind using 3/8 rod for the teeth. I made a rake I use by hand (some what smaller) it worked well but a lot of work. I...

    This 1 7/8 ball with a 3/4 stud out the bottom of it fit perfectly in the rear hitch hole without any drilling. Plenty of clearance but don't cut real sharp while backing up. An extension like 14's would be better for that.

    stump grinder

    Has any one consider putting a trincher blade on the stump grinder. Will it fit? Is the stump grinder motor the same as the trincher motor? How much does a trinch blade cost? I am sure going to try reversing my stump grinder. Thanks 14 for the info.
