    Price Check Appraisal

    I have been going through the divorce process for three years now. The latest thing now is she wants half the value of my 2011 LS R4047 with loader and backhoe. I tried telling the lawyer there is no blue book for tractors. Then he wanted me to get a written appraisal, but no dealer wants to...

    Loader bucket won't curl

    After work today I did a little more troubleshooting. I swapped the curl/dump hydraulic lines and was able to curl but not dump...just the opposite of the original problem. This told me the problem was not in the cylinders. At first I thought I had broken a piece off of the joystick where the...

    Loader bucket won't curl

    I pulled the rubber boot away to take a look. It appears to be a cable that goes down to a control valve.On the joystick side there is a little spool that isn't moving. When I move the joystick up/down that spool moves. The dump spool the same but the curl function seems to be stuck in the...

    Loader bucket won't curl

    LS R4047. I was unloading some sawmill flitches onto the burn pile with my grapple. I shook the grapple a couple of times to flick the flitches off and when I backed away from the pile I couldn't curl the grapple. When I move the joystick left there is no resistance, just a lot of free play...

    Pat's Quick Hitch customer service

    I ordered a Pat's Quick hitch, Cat 1 when there were on sale here at TBN. It won't fit the tractor I bought it for without a lot of modifications to the lift arms. I have e-mailed Pat's about returning it but never got a reply. I'm not real happy with their customer service. Anyone need a...

    Pats quick hitch won't fit

    I bought a Pat's quick hitch during the black Friday sale here for my girlfriends tractor so we could leave the backhoe on mine most of the time. The hitches won't slide over the ends of the lift arms, there is a bell shaped end on them. I have sent an email to Pat's but have not received a...

    International Harvester Dump

    Not sure if this is the right place to ask this but I am looking at a 1978 IH Dump, 21,000 gvwr. 70,000 miles, 345 V8, not all rotted out. He's asking $4,600. Anybody ever have one or any experiences with one? I always heard that the 345 IH engine was bulletproof.

    Problems connecting hydraulic implements

    Not sure if this is the right place to post this but here goes. When connecting my backhoe or grapple I need to crack the hydraulic lines in order to get them hooked back up. Am I doing something wrong or is there something I can do to make this easier?

    Quick Hitches Quick Hitch- Pat's or HF

    I have been thinking about a Quick Hitch and have been reading and searching but still can't decide what would be better for me. All of my implements are older so they are not really Quick Hitch compatible. I will be switching between a landscape rake, box blade and grader blade. The price on...

    8 foot back blade too much?

    I got the scarifiers and they fit perfect. I still have the backhoe hooked up so haven't had a chance to try it out. Snowed here yesterday so everything is a little muddy still. I hope to try it out Saturday.

    Rookie 3pt question

    I have an LS R4047 and am trying to use the 3 pt hitch for the first time with a landscape rake. It seems like my 3 pt arms are not lowering all the way. This is as low as they will go. I may be missing something basic...?

    8 foot back blade too much?

    While looking through craigslist I found an International 8 foot back blade for $300...I have an LS R4047, would an 8 foot be too much?

    Box Blade sizing

    I just found a 60" Frontier (JD) box blade for sale locally. I think I can buy it for around $300 or so and it's in nice shape. My question is this; I would need a 72" to be wider than my LS R4047 rear wheel tracks. Would I be better off waiting for a 72" or can I get by with a 60"?

    Backhoe removal and bucket questions

    I am getting ready to remove my backhoe from my R 4047 for the first time and am looking for tips...I didn't get any manuals when I bought the tractor. Also is the backhoe bucket a standard size? I think I would like to get a narrower on for the work I am doing.

    Running Hydraulic lines from my rear remote for grapple

    Probably a noob question but here goes...I want to run hydraulic hoses from my rear remote to my FEL on my LS R4047 so I can use a grapple. What diameter should I use? 1/2 or could I go smaller? I would like to 90 degree out of my rear remote, do they make a 90 degree fitting or do I need to do...

    R 4047 weights

    I'm trying to see if the trailer I'm looking at can handle the weight of the Tractor, Loader and Backhoe. I found the weight of the tractor on as roughly 3,800 lbs, the loader at around 1,100 lbs without bucket but couldn't find the weight of the Backhoe (LB2101?)

    Financing Financing a used Tractor-What's best?

    I have been thinking about buying an older backhoe to use on the 20 acre property we bought to dig out stumps and and try and get a spot cleared to build a house. It is a Case 580 CK, diesel, probably about a '68 or '69 model. It seem to be in pretty good shape, not all rusted to **** and has...

    Can I switch from turf to R1 or R4

    I have a Massey Ferguson 1230 that currently has turf tires, 315/80D16 rears and 24 x 8.5 x 12 fronts. According to The size for ag tires is 12.4-16 rears and 6-14 fronts. If I manage to find the rears in R1 (I haven't yet) will I able to use the wheels I have now?
