    Help Identify my Massey Ferguson

    \ I owned a tractor similar to that once, MF2135. it was an industrial version of a MF135. iirc it had a 3 speed trans w high and low range, an additional foot throttle, and the exhaust routed out below and the the rear of the tractor. and had power steering. I think pretty well everything...

    $500,000.00 fine and/or 5 years in federal prison for a first offense. John Deere

    You can pay a John Deere dealer to take a tractor home, but John Deere refuses to acknowledge that tractor belongs to you. this is so bizarre I really don't know where to post it. how about a poll to see just what farmers think of this? John Deere just told the copyright office that only...

    Time for some hydraulics troubleshooting GC2410

    Well, I guess something had to break sooner or later. :laughing: have been doing a lot of digging/traveling over the last week. today the bucket curl system gave up the ghost. bucket will still curl relatively decent, but will not hold. requires constant pressure on the joystick while...

    GC mixer build

    I posted a picture of this about 5 years ago and noticed it had over a thousand views but no comments. I called it a tool tote but things have worked out differently. I really only use it for mixing cement, but it has proven very handy for that. I can have a dump truck deliver the navijack at...

    Front bucket hooks gc series

    depends on what you are doing. for general yardwork my forks get used so much more often than hooks that its hard to make a comparison. 60-80 times as often wud be ballpark figure. bare bucket moving dirt is the one I least use, however I do have to remove the forks to use the bucket...

    Front bucket hooks gc series

    this is just one example. YouTube the hooks on mine get used quite often. no bracing has been required. it is usual much better to pull from the bucket end using the backhoe or whatever you have hanging off the back of the tractor for ballast.

    GC2410 Glow Plugs

    lol! I pulled the plugs, but the testing part was not necessary. I know the picture is crappy, but my phone lens is hooped. as you can see, the new ones are overall longer than the originals, the ends are all missing from the originals but they still seem to be full width down past where the...

    GC 2410 motor

    does anyone have an idea where to go, besides MF, for parts for the iseki diesel in the 2410? tractor laid over on its side and the engine ran away. no damage to body parts etc, but engine appears to be toast. too bad, it was a pretty well flawless engine. next one will have positive air...

    Got an interesting letter from the RCMP today

    It's pretty easy for you to sound like a wizard on a board populated primarily with farmers and, no doubt, that helps you sell welding machines. But I am a welder too... here are some shots from my last job, And I can guarantee you there are no Everlast welding machines on this site. Far as...

    Got an interesting letter from the RCMP today

    I sure wish I had a working scanner so as to provide a nice clean copy of this letter. The last thread I was involved in here was locked by the administrator, in part because I referred to Everlast welders as throw away items, I never imagined I would be receiving a letter from the RCMP...

    Snow snow blade in GC2300/GC2310 bucket?

    I agree with Ray, I have a backblade for dragging or pushing up against a pile. I use the bucket for piling where need be. You often have to get up a head of steam if the snow is deep or heavy, all you have to hit is one snag while pushing with the bucket, and it will shake your teeth lose and...

    Tires GC2310 wheels/tires

    I've had ag's on mine from day one, no regrets. I don't use the 2410 to mow, but still run on this lawn without issue, as long as I don't regularly use the same path. If I do that, I doubt it would matter what kind of tires I had, the weight of the machine will kill the grass, at least...

    I have finally given up on having the tach/hr meter working in the winter. The tractor is always stored inside heated garage, I take it outside and within 10 minutes the tach buries itself and starts howling. Stop machine, restart, rev up, tach buries and howls, repeat procedure until pissed off...

    metal stems for gc2410

    I got ag tires put on my 2410 by the dealer when I bought it. they charged me $200.00 dollars to have the tires filled and assured me they would use non-caustic fluid. by the end of the first season they were signs of rust appearing around the valve stems. beginning the 3rd season, (may) there...

    hi, my machine is ready for the 250 hr hydro oil change.

    GC 2410 steering

    my steering ram needs replaced as it is very sloppy. there is also oil leaking in that area. i have been checking the engine oil level and that doesn't seem to be the source of the leak. does the steering cylinder get it's oil supply from the main hydraulic pump?

    gc2410 tachometer issue

    my 2410 sat for the better part of 6 weeks, after which i noticed a blowdown on the edge of my property. so i decided to just put the brush forks on and move it rather than cut it up with the chainsaw. i started the tractor, let it warm up for about 20 minutes (-5c) and then did the job. i...

    gc2410 cruise control

    hi, i'm wondering if anybody has had to adjust their cruise control assembly. mine always backs off immediately, a little bit, and then continues to back off so that i have to reset it so regularly that its really not a cruise control. has anyone else had this problem, dealt with it?
