    Kubota RTV x900 Freewheeling

    Is it a new machine, or has this just started? I ask because I put mine in 4wd going down step hills. Reason being the back would "slide" down hills on wet or loose dirt giving the effect of free wheeling. 4wd essentially solved the free wheeling effect for my situation.

    UTV's and ATV's at work picture thread

    I had nothing but trouble with that company last year sending me the wrong part, and it was someone else's return none the less. 5 months to get the correct part, 3 months to get my refund AFTER they received the part I sent back. And, they double charged me, causing me to put in a dispute with...

    What did you buy this week?

    Ok, I figured it was probably just for a hose rinse off which makes sense. I guess my main question is... What cartridges did you use to connect to a garden hose? Or do you have it set up coming from well water to an outside bib then just connect your hose like normal? I'm trying to picture this...

    Rear finish mower options

    Trust me, I'd much rather replace the gearbox over replacing the mower. But to find an exact match is $1200 nearly, and that's the only one I've found. Yes, that's cheaper than another used mower. But then what if I have issues with other NLA parts? I've spent hours over weeks looking for one...

    Rear finish mower options

    I've got hills, but not hills that twist the deck side to side if that makes sense. There are areas where the edge digs in, and I'm thinking with wheels pushed farther out, might relieve that issue. I wish I could add pictures, but the app won't let me anymore for some reason.

    Rear finish mower options

    This is exactly why I'm thinking about unloading/scrapping the Bobcat branded one in favor of either the Befco or the Bush Hog brand.

    Thank you for the input on the bush hog experience. I am going to try and look at both the bush hog and Befco. I think the Mahindra one is out because I can't find definitive info for finding parts down the road if problems arise.
  14. S

    Rear finish mower options

    Yeah, I got rid of the air filled ones on my current mower. I'd do the same with the next. So that's 2 positive for the Befco. The most expensive one I'm debating of course [emoji23]

    Tilt trailer

    Hydraulic dove tail is the way to go. Ever since I got mine, my other trailer is used as a back up only. Such a back saver, and it applies down pressure so the trailer doesn't want to lift off the ball (mine is bumper pull) while loading.

    New Diesel Truck-- Buy Now, or Wait?

    I spec'd out a '24 GMC 4 door, 6.5 foot bed, 4wd with minimal electronics like my '05 out of curiosity the other week. "Only" came to 65k I think it was. Mine was 44k new according to the window sticker I have in the glovebox. So below 100k should be doable.

    Your last generator Maintenance Run

    That seems very helpful, thank you! This one runs on propane, but I'm sure there's little difference besides the fuel delivery. I'll have to print it so I can look at it better.

    Your last generator Maintenance Run

    Grs, thank you for all the generator help I see you contribute. I'm writing all the ideas down to tackle this ASAP. I forgot to ask in the previous response, how is it that I can test for a short in that wire that was mentioned? Thank you.

    Your last generator Maintenance Run

    The starter solenoid is what I meant and my brain has been mush after this last vacation with what I needed to concentrate on. The fuse, I believe is 5 amps. Since you have an Onan, what size battery do you have connected to it if you know off hand? Or am I just looking for the best CCA I can...

    Your last generator Maintenance Run

    Good thoughts all around. Thank you. I know I have a manual somewhere for this thing. But I'm pretty sure the plugs I can still read the number on. No pull cord, but I might be able to spin it manually somehow. Might as well drain and change the oil while I'm in there. Ha

    As far testing the battery under starter load, I can't with the generator itself. Before the generator even tries to do anything, that fuse blows. This weekend I'll hopefully.. 1. Disconnect battery and load test(battery is close to 6 years old come to think of it) 2. Put in new spark plugs...

    Can I test the starter by just applying 12v to it?
  126. S

    Your last generator Maintenance Run

    Thank you both.. I'll replace the plugs, and check the voltage on the battery. I'll see what my battery tester does in the load test. Never thought that could cause the glass fuse to blow. Good to know that! [emoji106]

    Your last generator Maintenance Run

    My 5k Onan failed to start this past outage.. Turns out the starter fuse blows every time power is tried to be transferred to start it. Gotta figure this out before winter hopefully. Maybe it'll give be an excuse to finally pull the trigger on a 10-15kw diesel generator vs the little 5kw...

    There is no definitive example exactly I can think of off hand, but you get employees that consider staying long term and with that comes employees that do want the best for the company because they want to stay and keep a steady, good paying job with benefits and perks. They(the employee) will...

    Charging Trailer Brake Battery

    Those batteries aren't exactly known for lasting long as well. But first I would check to see if there is voltage going to the battery with your truck hooked up and running. Fuse is a simple place to start as mentioned. If not getting voltage, start working backwards towards your tow vehicle to...

    Electric Trailer Winch Question....

    I have a winch on a trailer and it has come in handy, so I understand your thought. As far as what to look for... Load is one. A snatch block can essentially double the pull weight, but half the speed at which it pulls. I would think the best you could do is keep it covered and clean. The...

    My grapple is an open back, which I like because I'm able to see thru so I can better see what I'm picking up. And I like to be sure I have a good grip. I am going to add a mesh back eventually though.

    Lynch Pins Coming Off

    I kept losing them on my 3 point mower wheels and trying to find the spacers got old quick. A careful loop and twist of safety wire fixed my issue so they can't open. For something that you constantly remove, probably not the best idea though.
