    I feel really good about this...

    Which is likely proof that I am indeed insane! My guess is many of you know about my decision to buy a little brother for my B2910. My zero percent financing was approved by Kubota, and so my dealer is getting a BX2200 with 60 inch MMM, block heater and heavy duty alternator on order for me...

    lights on ROP for a TC 30

    I would like to add a light to the top of the ROP because the 7308 blocks the front lights. Can I splice into the existing headlight circuit and add a small light on the ROP or would that overload the existing lights and cause a fuse to fail.

    Bushing extraction

    I've got to remove some bushings from the end of the dipper on my backhoe. It appears that either the wrong 'length' bushings where used, or they somehow moved. The upshot is that I cannot get the bucket off. What are ways to do this? Are their simple (cheap?) tools like a gear puller type...

    I'm new to tractors. My last "property" was 50 FEET by 150 FEET and, well...my old push mower is a little over welmed by my current 60 acres. I'm buying a 4520 Branson and intend to use it to: A) tear out 4000 feet of old barbwire/rotten woodenpost fence, B) maintain about a mile of...

    Mowing GC2300 mower height adjustment

    I just had my GC2300 delivered this evening. After looking it over I am now confused about the mower height adjustment. The manual says to use the four guage wheels to dial in the mower height. This would mean that the deck rides on the ground, but I thought it was supposed to be suspended...

    MF 1040 FEL

    I'm looking at a 1040 loader on a MF 1455v 4wd. It has a 60" standard bucket on it now, but I prefer a 72" to cover the tractor width. I think it might be a good idea to go on and get the HD bucket for a couple of hundred dollars more. The HD bucket weighs about 200lbs more than the standard...

    72" RFM questions

    72\" RFM questions Must admit I didn't do my homework very well. The Frontier finish mower which I purchased, has spacers on all four float wheels which must be moved to change the cut height. Is this the way most/all RFMs are? Any secrets as to how to best use the RFM, full float on the wheels?

    Toothbar on or off??

    I have been doing a lot of grading of my property lately. My technique is to make several passes with my boxscraper to create piles of dirt that I scoop up with my FEL.

    is this a bad sign before buying?

    I found a kubota BF400 with an L275 (27.5hp) motor & 4wd for sale. However, I can't seem to get it into the 4 high gears. Is it because I have the 4wd or PTO engaged? What am I doing wrong, or is it just broken?

    Wheel torque

    I was checking the torque on the wheels of my bx-22 for the proper tightness, I thought it said rear 120 ft lbs but was only 96 ft lbs, Will over torquing by 24 pounds hurt anything here. I backed it off to the proper 96 ft lbs, 120 for the front.
