    Need to update finishing mower

    Bought this mower new in 83 when we purchased our Ford 1300, which was also bought new, but from a different dealer. Mower was about 600.00. It has since had the deck reworked where the bearings go (you can see the metal plates that were used). The skid shoe needs repair and welding back on...

    BREAKING NEWS!!!!.......

    Or maybe it should read broken news. Went out to clean vines off of pto shaft on mower where they had wrapped around it (don't you hate it when it does that). Well, the bolt that holds pto coupler from mower to shaft was missing. Normally, you have a spring loaded pin thing you push in to...

    Electric pecan shellers, anybody build one?

    Looks like we have a bumper crop of pecans this year, probably due to all the rain back in the spring. Any body have one, and preferably one you have built, that you would be willing to share pics? I have envisioned a couple of rollers (like conveyor belt roller), and then a drive roller like...

    Fire Dept. access....

    I was reading Eddie's hijacked thread about fire dept. scooping up a scuba diver with helicopter to put out forest fire, and it got me to thinking. If someone's property is on fire (say a wooded area near Eddie, not his property), if there are no hydrants nearby, does the FD have the right to...

    Home made slope meter...

    for the slope, not the tractor. Take a piece of wood, maybe 2' long, 1x4, stick a piece of stiff wire into side, bend up to be vertical with board. Hang a protractor, (or a paper copy of one) from wire bent over so protractor has curved part hanging down. Support wire should show through...

    Lost a friend this week

    Lifelong friend passed away from injuries he sustained in a motorcycle accident about 4 years ago. He was buried today in a little cemetery in the town we grew up in. Pretty impressive rig he used to transport the body. He helps out with a lot of burials on returning Iraq vets. More about his...

    With the latest recall of toys from China dealing with lead paint, I wonder how many of us have a hazardous tractor (from the components it's made from, not from driver actions)? I think my 49-52 year model Farmall still has the original brakes on it (probably with asbestos), and if it had any...

    Changing engine oil to compensate..

    for lower sulfur fuel. I thought this was an interesting twist, on a 20+ year old tractor no less, that they suggest a different classification oil for the engine rather than suggest a fuel additive...

    Deceased members

    I know Madreferree's passing caught a lot of folks here at TBN offguard, and still folks are just finding out about it. What about a spot where the deceased TBN members could be located (kind of like an orbituary section of newspaper), where when we log on, we could click there and see if any...

    Interesting "lowering" trailer @ HD..

    Saw this today at Home Depot. Unique design, but don't know how much weight it will carry. It appeared to be for hauling a small trencher rental unit, or maybe a small manlift.

    Rental equipment @ Home Depot

    Was just killing time before work tonight, stopped by HD to look around. They had 2 riding mowers in the whole store, a Toro, and a Cub Cadet. I wasn't impressed. Walked outside, seen their rental fleet. They were orange. I thought, hmm, Kubota, or Kioti? Neither. PowerHouse brand. The...

    Ford 1300, top end not oiling....

    A week or so back, my stepdad called to say there was something wrong with the tractor. Was running, now won't start. I went to investigate. Tractor would try to start, smoke out exhaust, but would't fire off. (Engine rebuilt in 2002, probably less that 20 hrs on rebuild). I pulled valve...

    I thought it would be interesting (if not down right funny), if you would post a pic of you ready to attack your enemy....brush hogging, log splitting, spraying wasps, etc. I am at work now, or I would start. Feel free to "jump" right in.

    :mad: Father in law comes over this morning wanting me to take a look at his mower. He bought it last year, now mower deck is making a racket. I went to look, spindles are almost froze up--no way to grease. Can't hardly turn them by hand, they make an awful racket. I will be contacting MTD...

    Dallas water supply--East Fork River

    A couple years ago, an article in the Dallas paper addressed the dwindling water supply (long drought, low lake levels, etc.) and they had a write up about a purification process. They were going to build some holding lagoons, plant some water purifying plants, and divert water from river into...

    I posted to mars1952 post a little while ago and it got me to thinking(?), he has a nice list of implements in his profile, and a list of things he is going to acquire/build, but only 1 tractor. What is your implement to tractor ratio? 15 implements, 3 tractors,= 5:1** ** subject to change...

    Studded tractor tire...sort of...

    For those with 4x4, FWD, 4 wheel assist, whatever you want to call it, instead of chains on the front, could you take a used tire (with studs), cut flaps in sidewall so it could be slipped over your present tire, bungee in place, and be on your way. Added traction, no damage to turf, easy (???).
