    Grasshopper 614/Eaton 771 hydro spin-on hydrostatic filter conversion?

    After some more researching this, it looks as though the setup on the 618 uses either the port plate for a remote filter on the #2 hydro, and/or the charge pump located on the #1 hydro to provide some kind of circulation through the single filter to the reservoir and back. Since the port plate...

    CK2610 3pt leak down fixed

    My 2610's 3pt hitch would leak down pretty fast. After running the tractor for a while and getting the hyd oil hot, with a heavy implement on the 3pt hitch you could sit and watch it pulse up and down as it would drop down and the position control would return it to where it was supposed to be...

    What's the valve right under the seat?

    I was just wondering what the valve right under the seat in the middle does on my YM1401D. It looks like one that you should be able to turn with your hands, but I had to put pliers on it in order to turn it. What exactly is its function?

    Could I make something cool out of this?

    Saw this little setup on craigslist, it looks like a little trailer with one of those leaf vacuum motors mounted on it, appears to need hoses, etc. but the motor and vac unit seem to work good. Think this might make a good project for some kind of leaf vacuum? Leaf Vacuum Unit and trailer

    Had my first "oops" this weekend.

    No, I didn't roll my tractor or get stuck to the point that 4WD could get me out... BUT: I was digging out a trench with the dirt scoop to fill with good dirt to make a little garden in. Dirt scoop worked EXCELLENT for that by the way, as soon as I get the "problem" fixed I will post...

    RAIN!!!!!!

    FINALLY, for the first time in around 2 months we got some rain that lasted for more than a couple hours today! I was planning to come home, flip on the TV and be lazy on a Friday, but it ended up being much more fun: On my way home, I took part in extreme Dodge dually powersliding at every...

    Box Scraper  What all can you do with a box blade?

    Sorry if this doesn't belong here, but I did a search and not much came up... Anyway, I am interested in what I could do with a smallish box blade for my tractor. I have a pasture that it looks like someone drove a large tractor/truck through the field at one point, and left some pretty good...

    Cranking with the compression release

    Just a quick question for you all. On my Yanmar when I first crank it up I like to let the oil pressure build. It takes I'm guessing about 4-7 seconds for it to build enough for the light to go off, and I have the compression release pulled during this time so there is very little load on the...

    Where to bun Sunpro gauges from?

    Hey guys, Been reading around and it seems like the Sunpro 1.5" 3-gauge pack is just perfect for a little tractor like mine (1401D). I've looked around on Sunpros website but can't find them, is there any site on the internet I can order them from and just get them shipped to my house? I also...

    Started to learn to use my tractor today!

    After getting the leaky cooling hoses replaced I am happy to say that the tractor has not overheated since. I have not taken it out in the field and bush hogged at over 2000RPM on the tach yet, but I did to a bit of work (err, playing) today and it seemed just fine. Put my first very own hour...

    Got my tractor today!!!

    I'm so excited I had to take a bunch of pictures, sorry. At first I ran into some trouble getting it off the trailer. Like I said in my earlier post the battery defiantly needs to be replaced and it either needs a new regular or a who new alternator. Tried jumping it a couple times. Didn't...

    Might be a new (to me) 1401D owner.

    Hi guys, I originally had this post in the main buying/pricing section but I thought I might get a bit more responses here. Tell me what you think. Also, quick question about the compression release. If I understand correctly it releases the compression to let the starter have an easier time...

    Tell me about this little TC18...

    Hi guys, some of you may have read my thread in the main buying/pricing section of the forum. Right now I am down to a Yanmar YM2000 with a bush hog and a scraper blade for $3,950, but some people have also said the following tractor, though a little smaller than the Yanmar, might be a better...

    Going to look at a tractor tomorrow, tell me what to look for...

    Hi guys, I'm new here, and I'm going to look at a tractor tomorrow. Heres the background: I've got 6 acres of land in Chapel Hill, NC. My little riding mower will no longer "cut it" when it comes to keeping the fields trimmed. I am looking for a tractor mainly to put a bush hog on just to...
