    New (to me) 4100

    Picked up a high hour (5540 hrs) John Deere 4100 today so I can have a mowing tractor again. Surprisingly for the hours it’s mechanically sound, no blow by, smoke, or stuttering in the transmission/hydraulics. I’m not sure what it’s previous life entailed but I think it’ll have an easy...

    YM187D Project tractor

    It was bound to happen… listed my 226D for a stupid price thinking no one will ever buy it yet I still sold it. 🤷🏻‍♂️ Timing wise it worked out though since I was moving into my new shop and needed to free up some space while I got settled in. Now that everything is put away it was time for...

    Hyster S40 / E50 part interchangeability

    About 2 months ago I picked up a Hyster S40XM forklift for a fair price. It’s everything I need in a shop forklift although I wouldn’t mind if it lifted higher than 7ft. A few weeks ago I snagged 2 more forklifts, 2 identical E50XM’s. One is missing the battery and the other needs the...

    135D project tractor

    Picked up another project today, a Yanmar YM135D. The guy’s dad used to be the local Yanmar dealer back in the day and believed his dad sold this tractor new. He had torn it apart to fix the leaking front end then suddenly put it back together and decided to sell it as it wasn’t really his...

    New to me 226D

    Posted this on my other thread but figured I’d start a new thread for the “new” tractor. This one is a Yanmar YM226D, let’s just say it needs some love. - Clutch releases basically at the bottom of the pedal (can’t shift ranges or into the PTO when running) - front axle pivot is pretty worn...

    Might be getting back into a Yanmar

    It’s certainly been a while, almost 10 years ago I sold my YM169D to purchase my first skidsteer. Today I do excavation full time with several newer bobcat machines but still have a soft spot for the 80’s US market Yanmar tractors. This afternoon I’m going to go look at this YM186D, apparently...

    Bobcat M600D / M600 Glow plugs

    Long time no post but I'm working on gathering information for a project machine. Last week I picked up an old M600 with a bad Wisconsin engine. Having had no luck finding a Wisconsin locally I did manage to find the Duetz F2L410 out of an M600D locally on ebay. So fast forward a few days I...

    Bobcat T180/T190 or Deere CT322/323D

    I start, I've had a 317 deere skid steer for several years and this year is is giving me plenty of grief, losing the hydraulic pump, injection pumps, and control linkage all at 1700 hrs. Power wise its unstoppable when everything is up to par, but I very much dislike the design behind the 4024T...

    Hinomoto E150 w/ locked engine

    I haven't posted here in quite a while but this last week I picked up a Hinomoto E150D with a seized engine as a project. The story I got from the seller was that the previous owner had used this tractor for 20 years to mow his field. He parked it in his machine shed for about 3 years and when...

    The M-Wards Hydrostatic 16 project

    A few days ago I picked up my 9th garden tractor, a 1977 Montgomery Wards Hydrostatic 16. This is my first M-Wards so a lot of it is new to me however I am very impressed with how well built this thing is. I believe it has a shaft driven transmission (which is serviceable), hydraulic lift, and...

    What is the largest load you have lifted with your tractor(s)?

    The title basically says it all, what is the largest load you have lifted with your tractor(s)? For me it is a toss up, both times using two skid steers to remove a stump or two out of the ground. The first time was with my Deere and my grandpa's Bobcat. We maxed out both machines trying to...

    Who else on here has a Skid Steer?

    I have had my skid steer for close to a year now (1 year @ end of January 2013) and absolutely love it! Who else on TBN has a skid steer? What do you use it for? How many hours does it have on it. I'll start. I have a 2004 John Deere 317 skid steer currently with a 66" bucket and a 3 point...

    hours per year

    How many hours do you put on your tractor in a year? I have noticed a huge jump with my Deere skid steer. My old Yanmar would get about 50-60 hours logged on it every year which would be mostly mowing and scraping dirt. Now that I have my Deere skid steer I am about 6 months into owning it and...

    Fitting an imatch to a skid steer + hydraulic PTO

    I came up with a wild idea that if I took my imatch from my old Yanmar and mounted it to the front of my John Deere 317 skid steer loader that I would be able to not only use the tractor implements I currently own but also be able to purchase 3 point implements in the future. Then I figured that...

    Deere 317 will not start

    Well, I should have known it was coming, the battery finally gave way on my 317 last night.

    Many of us will say our own Yanmar is our favorite model, but just out of curiosity, what is your favorite Yanmar model and why?

    A PTO shaft day

    It started when i decided to fix up my neighbor's John Deere 413 brush hog a few weeks ago. He and I made a deal that I could sell it and get half profit.

Is this natural, over filled, or something else? It doesnt appear to have any damage but I would like to figure out the problem and if other...

My mom and Step Dad sure are lucky that i like tractors enough to buy one of my own since they have needed one for 4 years. I used the brush...

    I found a Ford 1200 tractor, 4x4, 3 point, ROPS, and rear wheel weights for $500 on craigslist. The bad, it needs its tranny rebuilt. Would this be a good deal. Is it very expensive to have a tranny rebuilt? My budget is $1800. Comments welcome. This is a 16 hp tractor, would it be able to...

    John Deere error code 15

    Well, this morning when my dad picked me up at my grandparents he was telling me that the 3720 wasnt driving. I guess he was feeding the horses and it suddenly stopped.:eek: Then the little computer on the dash said error code 15. He tried to get it to move but only went about 20'. The tractor...

There is no other information but does it sound like its a good deal? I can tell from the picture that it...

    Middle buster

    Ive been thinking of buying a KingKutter middle buster to till the arena since my boxblade pulls to much dirt. The sand/pea gravel mix can be very hard at times so it will have its work cut out. I also need it to fit on my imatch system as well as a standard 3 point and under $200. Ive looked at...

    Johndeere LT 155

    I was on craigslist and found a LT 155 for $300. It needs deck work and a new hood. Would it be worth fixing for that price since all the LTs ive seen are $1500-2000.

    3720 cruise control button

    Well, since the tractor has 930 some hours, I can see how dirt and small pieces of hay got under the button. But how do you clean it out? :confused: I stuck a screw driver into the holes under the fender to find holes that only go into a hollow space. So there are no screws. I suspect that the...

    Johndeere CT322 arm movement

    Ive noticed that when the loader is up in the air about where the bucket meets the headlights and you turn on hard ground, the arm "bounces" from side to side until you lower it to the ground. Is that normal?:confused:

    Ford LGT 120?

    I was wondering if the Ford LGT 120 was a good lawn tractor. I found one near by for $550 with a MMM and rear mounted rototiller. Is this a good deal? Are there any problems to be aware of with this tractor? I would really just get it for the tiller to till the garden but I could use the MMM to...

    New road on steep hills

    Well, yesterday I started to dig out the new road to get the tractor and skidsteer to the back end of the property. The area I was working in was hilly and in some spots, steep. There are no rocks what so ever but some spots were hard and some soft. I used the track skidsteer to do the job since...

    Dirt scoop?

    Ive always wished my grandpa's Johndeere 2210 had a loader. Would a dirt scoop work to move gravel so I can maintain my gravel road. How much would it cost, and will it work with the imatch system? I probably would get some weights for the front to hold it down. What brand is best?

    Tires  New R4 tires?

    Ive been wondering if there is a difference of traction between the new and old R4's. I like the curve look which looks it would cut then the dirt/mud would slip off the sides. The new R4 tire is in my signiture. The one in the signiture is featured on a new JohnDeere 3520.

    Yesterday, I was using my L118 lawn tractor to mow the neighbors huge yard. I had no problems until I was half way done. Then the steering got loose and you weould have to turn it really fast either way until it wasstiff and hard to turn. About 20 minutes later it was fine then acted up again a...

    Hay Shredder broke!

    Well, today (4-29-09) I went down to the dairy farm to do work like normal. I was given the job to take the hay shredder and shred some hay for bedding for the cows. It seemed simple enough. We hooked up the little JohnDeere 2210 and PTo and I put it a 540 RPMs. I kept adding hay into the hopper...

    Forks  Pallet forks and arena harrow

    Well, this week, I started working down the road at the dairy farm. I had brought my pallet forks down there to get a 3 piont mount made for them to fit on the back of my dads 3720 Deere. I even had a hole drilled in the forks to move trailers around. Originally, the forks were blue and before...

    Imatch on loader?

    I was thinking about making an imatch that could fit on the loader of a 3720 johndeere. I know that I can order the attachment system from johndeere for about $50 and an imatch for $225. What is the best design to use to do this. I want to put my boxblade on it so I can push dirt and till the...

    New blade broke!

    Yesterday, I had borrowed my grandpa's JohnDeere 2210 tractor so I could grade some roads and clear brush from the land. I equipped the tractor with my new grader blade and boxblade to make the driveways and roads smooth.:) I used the blade to pull the gravel out of the sides of the road and...

    what do I do?

    I have a 2005 JohnDeere L118 lawn tractor. It is the nicest riding mower (excluding Johndeere 2210) that I have ever used!:cool: the only problem is when I drive it down the driveway which is on a hill, I slide down it without control. The first time this happend was the worst because I had 300...

    New money saving idea!

    About a week ago, I noticed that when I tried to lift heavy pallets of masonry rock and gravel, the 3720 with 300X loader would tip over. I had recently purchased a new rear grader blade form Montana Tractor in Beaverton. (great people there with great service.) I was driving around the barn to...
