    7-pin trailer connection tester WISHES

    I believe that one will test the truck side circuits but not the actual trailer. Looks like the brake tester is testing the adjustable brake force signal from your brake controller. Here is the one to test the trailer...

    What is some of your Pet Peeve's

    I kind of like the know shifter in my Ram vs the console shifter in my brothers Ford. Its all electronic shifting and I would much rather have the extra space in the console. Only frustration is the truck I drive at work has a column mounted shifter so I am always reaching for the wrong spot...

    Tractor sold to me as a 2021, but is actually a 2020

    As others have stated its based on the year it is sold not manufactured. This is why when you get parts for tractors and other equipment such as mowers they ask for the serial number and not the year model as they track the parts compatibility by serial number sequence.

    Any experience with a landscape rake?

    Depending how much land you need to remove rocks from you may be better off hiring someone with a rock hound attachment on a skid steer or possibly renting one if a local place has it available.

    creating a culvert

    Its not a problem if you do it correctly. Fill the tank with water to displace any remaining propane and you can cut it without issue. Have seen several done this way to make trailer grills etc

    You can order an Ethernet adapter and then just use your own router to connect everything so you can set it up as you need.

    Unless the heavy rain/snow includes heavy wind or ice that takes out the cable lines. I have actually had very little issue with dropping service due to weather particularly compared when I was using Viasat internet.

    PTO Drive shaft problem (my latest issue)

    In the second picture it doesn't look like you have very much range of motion in the telescoping of the PTO shaft or at least the cover. There may be plenty but I would watch as you raise and lower it to make sure it isn't bottoming out.

    PTO Drive shaft problem (my latest issue)

    That helps. Where the shaft attaches to the tractor you have to pull back on the plate with the spring behind it closest to the tractor which will disengage the lock and then you can slid the coupler off. This may be difficult since it has been attached for so long. The chain is to keep the...

    PTO Drive shaft problem (my latest issue)

    Based on what you've told us it could be a bad U-joint or Gear Box. So you have never removed the finish mower from your tractor to know how the PTO shaft attaches? There are a couple different retention methods if you post a picture it should be easy to tell you how to remove it. Once you can...

    Anyone go from gas to electric, then back to gas?

    Main thing is right tool for the job. Some yards or task just won't ever be right for electric. If you are using them close to home where you can put a battery on charge when needed it works but gas would be better if not.

    Septic tank and leach field

    Any good septic company should be able to come out and locate everything for you. They will put the camera into the pipe and push it to the tank. They then use an above ground detector to locate the camera and this can tell them the location and depth of the camera. You may as well have them dig...

    They don't want to lock themselves into a price. It may adjust and they don't want people seeing that it was listed for less last week. Also it gives them a chance to talk to you about how much you need a tractor before they drop the price on you.

    Just bought 6 acre of land. Now what???

    Before commiting to the idea of living in an RV you might want to check with the county. Most places won't allow that or if they do it is via a temporary permit while you are constructing a home.

    Buying land that has a natural gas line on it?

    That's crazy that they can build a trail like that on your property. Here I could build a fence thru the right of way I just have to give the utility the key or expect that the lock will be cut if they need to get in.

    There are 2 types of 3rd function. 1 that works with a buttons to open and close independent of the loader movement. The other is a diverter valve which you have to hold the button and then curl the bucket but instead of curling the grapple will open or close. If you have 2 buttons and one is a...

    Don't settle for the mahindra diverter valve system. Get the WRLong system. This gives you an open close switch for the grapple that works independent of the other loader functions. This way you can use your loader as normal while also opening or closing the grapple. Even if the cost is a bit...

    Air conditioner woes

    They probably are not 100% wrong. It most likely is on its last leg. So even if you get it going again I would start budgeting for a replacement sooner than later. On the bright side you will most likely see an energy cost reduction with the new unit.
