    NEED another TRACTOR

    About every year I wind up fighting with the weather and time during hay harvest. Regardless of planning there usually comes a time where both the tedder and the rake have to be ready to use instantly - either concurrently by 2 operators, or back and forth in sequence by one/me. The baler must...

    This would be nice. In real life however the clientele is then relegated to being so diluted that the company can do anything it wants as long as enuf of its products sell to keep it in business. The issue of the other thread was, more than anything, one of common courtesy. On the surface...

    Freezers These Days

    Whats with home freezers these days. Older freezers would do 20 Below. Now its -5 and maybe -10. This leaves no performance margin at all for good preservation. I had an older one, bought used, that I ran it for an additional 20 yrs myself. It would do a solid -20F til it wore out. We...

    Do L3450s have bad engines?

    After several years and 2000hrs on an L2550 we upgraded my wifes tractor to an L3450 with 1700 hrs bought on eBay. The 3450 engine did not sound good like the one on the 2550 always had thru years of rough treatment. We wanted the greater power on the familiar platform, while retaining the 2...
