    3 point Chipper ????

    I have the same chipper but mine is from jinma. Bought from a shop out of Tennessee. Haven't had any problems. Tighten every bolt when you get it. Mine was like $2300 delivered to a freight dock in town. I run mine on my 32 PTO hp tractor at about 1800rpm. It will chip a 8" pine tree. I mostly...

    Recommended multi-meter

    The big question is what are you using for, I mean are you a trades person that uses a meter everyday, or are you a hobby person using it a few times a year? As an electrician, I have a fluke with way more functions than the average person needs. But in my toolbox at home I have a simple bk...

    Hydraulic or HST Filter?

    I would change both filters. Mine has a napa1551 hydro filter. The larger filter is a Donaldson from the factory but I don't recall the number, I can look when I get home. I use a udt equivalent oil.

    Required Horsepower per feet for cultivators

    8 to 12 PTO hp per ft. So for ease of math let's say 10hp per ft of PTO hp. So, a 5ft cultivator wants 50 PTO hp. Whatever the cultivator is must be a monster if it can do the the job at 6 to 10 mph.

    If you can get at the sending unit, fuel gauges are a resistance reading should be like 0 to 90 ohms. If you are getting a reading somewhere in there, your gauge on the dash could be bad

    MT357 Loader flex

    I have 280hrs on my 357. If I carry a whole tree top in the grapple, like 20ish feet long, I see some flex like you speak of. I try to do things like that as infrequently as possible. I have enjoyed 2 years trouble free as well.

    Homemade wooden snowplow - thoughts?

    Seed disc

    Looks like 494 series planter. Deere still stocks them. They will cost more than the value of the planter, but if you already have the planter and it still works, why not.

    Order your rear view mirror from messicks. But buy it for a nh boomer 55. Same tractor. As for the tool box , let me know. It shows on the ls parts diagram but I have yet to see one.

    Farm fencing - augers vs post pounders

    I bought a fence pounder. I got the hd8 model from kenvove. I bought it for the same reason you are stating. I can put 10 4" posts in an hour. I have mostly clay and rocks. I run it on my smallest tractor. It needs very little hydraulic power. If your around sw Michigan I will rent you mine.

    FEL plow vs. rear blade for 1 mile of infrequent chipseal road snow removal

    Snow plow 100% better than a back blade. I've done both ways. A snowblower on the back would be better.

    How do I drain a Shaver HD10 into my tractor?

    Yes , plumb it into the fill using 3/4 hose and whatever fitting is needed to get into the fill hole on the rear end. I run mine just through the hydraulic outlets on the back using 1/2" hose, works fine, but performance might increase if I plumbed it direct into the fill hole.

    Anyone done a triple rear remote kit?

    My MT357 came with three valves, must be my dealer orders them all that way, I've only seen the NH Boomer 55(same tractor) come with less than 3 remotes.

    Box Scraper Land Planes / Grading Scrapers

    The only thing I could complain about it is the removable scarifier teeth are cheap cast from China and I broke 2 of them, of course doin a favor for a friend. If you maintain your drive in a reasonable manner , you don't need the scarifier teeth anyway. That was the only time I used them. I...

    My betsco flail is between cat 1 and cat 2 so a qh doesn't work. I have a qh on one tractor and I tried the pats on the other, it requires a longer top link as stated.

    How to evaluate a used tiller

    Check the oil in the gear box. Have them pick it up with a loader or something similar, spin the pto, make sure it feels tight. Look at the blades, that will tell you how many hours it's run. Take the cover off the chain or gear drive , see how it looks. They aren't really a technical machine.

    I have a kencove hd 8, same as a shaver. I plumbed mine right into the hydro outlets on the back of the tractor. I run it on my McCormick ct 41. A rebadged LS. Works great. Plumbed through the hydro couplers it's slightly slower than if you can dump it directly into the hydro reservoir. Still...

    LS MT 357 lost cruise control

    Yup it's under the floor board, has 2 jam bolts that you loosen and slide the solenoid closer to the forward petal. Very simple fix. Took a minute to realize how it worked. FYI, my dealer didn't know how it worked either.

    Newb looking for advice and info on a new compact tractor and attachments

    I have an LS 357, hydro top link, grapple, land plane. I use the 3rd hydro outlet for my third function on the loader, no big deal if you get used to it. The $1500 kit would be more convenient, but $1500 buys a land plane to maintain the access road. As stated a back blade makes better ditches...

    Snow plow on FEL

    I built 2, one for my t250 bobcat and one for my LS 357, the tractor is way easier and more pleasant to use, the skid steer is too much power and weight, the plow blade wouldn't take it. You will want the 3rd function to be able to angle the blade. I helped a buddy put one on his Ford 1710, for...

    Minimum HP for Flail Mowers

    I have a ditch bank mower on my McCormick ct 41, 36 pto hp. I think as stated before, it's tractor weight more than hp. I can plug the mower and smoke the belt before the tractor bogs, but if I went wider, I think it would be too heavy on the side of the tractor. I know if I get on much of a...

    Pat's Easy Change trouble

    I took my Pats off. Always had to mess with them, plus they added enough length, that my hydraulic top link wasn't long enough to reach certain implements. A waste of a couple hundred bucks in my opinion. Just buy a full QUIK hitch and save the headache. Just my opinion, of course.

    On my McCormick ct41, a rebadged LS, the top of the tank is where all the capacity is, will read full until you get to about 1/2 gone, than the Guage falls fast. I thought I had a bad sending unit until I actually looked at the shape of the tank.
