    You may not have Stitches or broken bones but you’ll have knots on your head from that PT canopy. [emoji4]

    PT-422 Electric Conversion.......Done!

    Thanks for this great post. I’ve been thinking about converting my oldest 1430 to electric for some time, especially now that the engine has given out. Your post gets the juices flowing again. Have to research where to get parts reasonable.

    I’ve kind of wondered why power trac isn’t working on one.

    First issue with 1430, weak drive power.

    You must have taken that picture back in 2001. Way to clean. [emoji4]

    First issue with 1430, weak drive power.

    Your 1430 is behaving normally. The one I bought 2012 has behaved that way in the cold since I got it. The older one I had was more responsive. It had a different pump with bigger orifices so cold oil could flow through easier. Sometimes I put a portable jump box on the battery and use a squirt...

    PT1430 vs PT2430 NEED Advice

    Depends on what you’ll be using it for. The 2430 is a better loader on level ground but not as versatile( even though all the attachments fit)as the 1430. The 1430 will do all the stuff your 425 does only it’s bigger.

    Have they built any gas models yet? Hoping they come up with a conversion kit for older tractors.

    Going to Tazewell tomorrow to buy.....

    A couple of times. Those brake pins have been frozen for years. The last time I went for a ride I was brush hogging up a steep hill in the woods. Took off down the hill backwards. Luckily i was able to miss all the trees. The thing that surprised me was the small hose from the pump to the draft...

    Don’t forget, if you blow a hose on the PT while on that hill you’ll take that same ride. Ask me how I know.

    Going to Tazewell tomorrow to buy.....

    My butt doesn’t like 30deg on any tractor. Lol. The point I was making is the 1430 is more stable on hills than the 2430. I have both.
  20. RegL

    Going to Tazewell tomorrow to buy.....

    If your land is that hilly your not going to feel stable with the 2430. It’s really a flat land machine. Unless you need the extra loader height, consider the 1430.

    Going to Tazewell tomorrow to buy.....

    The 2430 is kind of under powered for hills. Same engine as the 1430 and weighs about 1000lbs more. I like mine for loader work and light digging with back hoe. For just about everything else the 1430 is better.

    Hiccup in power trac plans

    Are they building any new 1430’s. Last time I talked to Terry they were out of diesels and the engineers hadn’t come up with a solution for mounting the gas engines.

    New PT1430 arrived.

    The tractor arrived a couple mourning's ago. been looking it over and there's been some upgrades since my old 2003 was built. The engine has been upgraded from a Deutz 1011f with 28 HP to a 2011f with 31HP. the wheel motors have been upgraded to ones with case drains and they supposedly have...

    Tires Caster wheel option for brush hog

    Don't know why it took me so long. Since I bought the PT1430 in 2003, I cursed every time I was field mowing with the brush mower because caster wheels were to small and the mower cut to short and used to much HP. The other day I happened to notice that my power rake, that I use once or twice a...

    Draft control problem.

    A while back, on my 1430, the draft control stopped working. After some time I isolated the problem to the adjustable hydraulic valve in the draft control unit. Terry doubted that was the trouble and Keith said he couldn't remember ever sending out a replacement for one. I ordered a new one...

    pin type brakes

    I have a 1430 with one break working and a 2430 with no breaks. Does anyone know if it's the cables that freeze up or the pin in cylinder mechanism. I've tried spraying with wd40 to no avail. Thanks. Reg

    And you say I don't maintain my equipment

    By the way, has anyone found good tires for the swivels on the front of the brush hog? I've been using solids from TSC that worked pretty good but I mowed some rough ground yesterday and they did not hold up. I'm beginning to think solid steel.

    T-12 QA on 1445?

    I'm thinking of upgrading from a 1430 to a 1445. I don't really want to replace my arsenal of attachments, however. I was wondering how feasible it would be to mount a t-12 QA to the loader arms on a 1445. I know I would have to be careful not to overpower the lighter attachments with the bigger...

    PT's thumb

    I basically wanted a thumb on the Mini-hoe for one thing. To lift fire wood logs to cut into stove length. The grapple bucket works but you still have a five foot log left in the middle. Their are better designs, but I figured PT's would work for what I needed it for and it looked quick and easy...

    Another win for the mini-hoe

    This will probably be the strangest job I will ever get. Seems this fellow died back in the 80's and his ashes were buried in the cemetery down town. Now his family made a request to a friend of mine, who's President of the cemetery assoc., to have him dug up so they can move him to a private...

    Tires Solid, no flat tires for brush hog casters

    I know someone replaced the caster wheels on their brush hog with solids, but I can't seem to find it. Just wondering where to get them as I just keep demolishing anything I can get locally. I might check with my Exmark mower dealer to see if any of theirs are the right size. As a side note, I...

    Conflict in my brain.

    Several of us have been posting, for a couple of years now, about working the PT in hot weather and how when the oil gets hot it's less efficient and the tractor loses traction and power. And we have discussed better cooling methods and adding thermometers to the hydraulic tank. Now I'm...

    Today I finally got around to working at changing out that leaky wheel motor. I bought the new one last Fall but the old one wasn't leaking that bad so it was one of those around to it jobs. I've got a little glitch. Got the wheel off and hoses disconnected but that wheel flange is being real...

    Leaky brush hog motor, simple fix.

    Last Fall, the motor started leaking around the cap that's on top. Terry sent me a new O-ring. The repair turned out to be pretty simple and would have taken less than 30 min. if it had not been for the two hours it took me to locate the O-ring that I put away last Fall so I would know right...

    Motor on brush hog leaking

    Looks like it's leaking where the end cap on top meets the side caseing. There are six bolts on the top. I don't know if they just hold the top piece on or if they are thru bolts and if I take them out the whole motor falls apart. It would be nice to plug the leak if it's an easy fix, but if...

    These are probably a bit heavy duty for Power trac but it might get you fabricators thinking. I never thought much about using the forks as an attachment plate. web page

    pt1850 in classifieds ????????

    Has anyone tried to contact the guy that's advertising the PT 1850 in the classifieds on this site. I have left phone messages and sent emails but have gotten no response. Also, does anyone here know anything about this tractor, like maybe it's already been sold.

    3-Point Hitch Pulsating 3 point hitch

    I have one of the now defunct Rhino Internationals that has developed a problem. With a heavy attachment raised on the 3ph, the hydraulics pulsate about once per second and the whole tractor jumps every time it does it. Also, with the tractor shut off, the 3ph bleeds down very quickly. I'm...

    Reversed wheels on pt1430 is a no go.

    Well, I finally tried reversing the wheels to do some hillside field mowing. The tractor felt very stable and I liked that open wheeled race car look. ( I'll load a couple pics later.) Trouble is, the wheel track is wider than the 60" brush hog and it left stringers everywhere. I had to mow the...

    Does Power Trac take trade ins?

    Almost had a SEDGEWOOD!!!!!!!

    Well, I was doing a late season field mowing job today and everything was just dandy. Those 1430 wheel motors love cool weather and cool hyd fluid. Than late this afternoon I suddenly detect the sickening smell of an electrical fire (you all know what that smells like). I look to the rear and...
