    Rake Howse Landscape Rake

    Stumbled across a 6 ft Howse landscape rake (new) for $365 guide wheels (2) for $175. Landpride and Woods are about twice this price, The Howse looks a little whimpy as compared to the the other two. One of the rakes in the yard had a bent side link, I think this was a result of reverse backing...

    I just ran out of my life time supply of wood glue. I went to the hardware store and could not find the same stuff. I have been using a tan powder that mixes with water. It machines well, won't gumm up blades, takes stain and is quite water resistant. Very strong and cleans up with water. Has...

    Hydraulic Oil Temp.

    For no good reason other than I wanted too. I added a temperature indicator to the Hydraulic reservoir. I figured if I knew what normal was I might be able to figure out when things weren't normal. I used a digital probe that fits quite nicely in the hole for the dip stick. The probe comes with...

    Three Point fatique

    My dealer sent a mechanic out last night to give my B21 a once over before the warranty expires next month. While he was here, I asked what kind of problems he has to deal with from abuse and misuse of tractors. The one that he mentioned, which I thought was most interesting, was three point...

    Distilling Lavender

    My wife is a Lavender nut and has been after me to figure out how to distill Lavender. I found a Lavender distiller on the web that costs as much as a good three point attachment but not much else.

    I have some logs I need to skid out of the woods. I was thinking about using the hoe to reach around and grab em and then skid em out. Is this a bad idea? Am I going to pop seals or whatever by dragging logs with the hoe? Tractor is a B21. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Al

    First Car/Truck

    I just read thru the Yuppie Tractor thread and saw a post by RobertN on his first rig being a $100 truck. Thought it might be fun to hear from others on their first car/truck. Mine was a 47 Plymouth, four door (suicide rear doors) with a flathead six. On a long level road, it would do about...

    Super Shopper

    I took my wife shopping for a ride on mower to replace her 1974, 32 inch Sears. After looking at the JD GT and 300/400 series, she settled on the B7500 with 60" midmount mower. It was a tuff call between the BX2200 and the B7500. The BX had a cup holder My reaction <font color=red>"You've come...

    Cracked Block Farmall A

    My A has a pin hole in the lower right hand corner of the block where it has been brazed. At one time the corner of the block had completely broken off then was brazed. Whoever did it, did a pretty good job. Water is getting into the engine and also weeping thru a pinhole to the outside. (kinda...

    Air Cleaner

    I picked up some Kobota VHS training tapes on ebay from some fella, can't remember his name. I think he has a talk board somewhere about "factors" or something. He is probably a Mathematician. The "Kubota Diesel Engine Maintenance Tape" discussed air filter maintenance and said that a dirty...

    I just started my 50 hour maintenance on my B21 and ran in to a marketing buzzsaw. The filters that the dealer sold me don't look like the originals nor do they match the Kubota Illustrated parts list. The original filters are painted gray and have no identification. If anyone can help without...

    Nature's Critters

    Nature\'s Critters I followed the Skunk and Beaver posts with delight and was wondering if there are more tales (or tails) about the trumphs and failures in dealing with natures critters. I thought the post using an infared motion detector turning on the sprinkler to deal with deer was ingenious.

    Bucket Forks

    Looking for advice on loader forks for my B21 (TL421 Loader). I looked at quite a few but not having any experience thought maybe I should ask. My use is lifting Pallets, irregular objects (stumps) and big ole rolls of black berries that I can't seem to get in the bucket.
