    Ford NH 1220 / Shibaura S320 Gearbox bearing failure

    Hi all, not at all new to machinery or tractors - just to Shibaura tractors. I recently bought this one, cheap, in its current condition to repair and keep. It is what I need - 20BHP diesel, 60" mid-mount mowing deck, HST, 3PL, PTO, P/ST and 4WD - a lot of attributes for a guy who has to look...

    Finally ... I'm back!

    Hey All, and most sincere apologies - I finally have a computer new enough to see a TBN page on! Embarrassed, but glad I can finally begin to catch up. I really hope everyone is well. I'm also hoping nobody has been harmed by bushfires, tornadoes, floods, or anything else. That said - we've...

    Off-topic - Apologies for recent absence

    Mod: Feel free to move this thread if needed - I read usually only MF threads, so I started it here. G'Day All, not sure if anyone has noticed, but I've not visited for a few weeks. Our start to the New Year has been among the worst I can remember. I do realise many families have had to come to...

    Local Country Town Machinery Display

    I recently went to see a display of restored, preserved or merely cared for and valued machinery, exhibited by a few rather enthusiastic owners. It was actually a fund-raising event to support a local non-profit organisation. As you may notice, I'm just a little one-eyed, but I do genuinely...

    Unusual Uses for Tractors

    I saw a brief story on last Sunday's local TV news and was very amused ..... also surprised to hear the same event was held for the second time - the first a few years ago! Seems to be a local ag machinery dealer expo. Best way to describe it? I would say :laughing: Agricultural Chess. Couldn't...

    Building our new dam

    Thought I would share what I've been busy with the last few weeks, as far as spare time goes. We do like to grow some vegetables, we also have a couple dozen fruit trees as well as the gardens and grass around the house always look nicer when they're green. There is a distinct "dry" season from...

    2016 "Grey Fergie" Rally

    Enthusiasts of the "Little Grey Fergie" which we all love to see might like to keep an eye out for this event, held every 3 years here in Australia, and scheduled for early July this year. I will really try hard to attend this - it isn't something that occurs every year. 60th Great Flood Rally...

    Gday All

    Thought I'd better show up & say Gday (Australian for hello). I'm Pat, joined yesterday, always busy doing something or other. We live on a small acreage just south of Brisbane Australia. I grew up on a dairy farm, and still seem to have wisps of hay in my hair! We have my late father's MF 35...
