It feels like it's slop in the shaft before it comes solid and moves the hyd actuator. I don't have a book on this and wonder if any...

    Logging wench mods

    I bought this at a auction last summer and it has been very handy so I thought I needed to make some mods. For safety when I ran it from the tractor seat I made the guard. I don't need a cable in my teeth in case something broke. I put a chain saw holder on the guard so that it was handy. I made...

    I went to an auction and bought a Farmi winch 351P. It didn't have a manual with it and I was wondering if any one knows where I can download one. It was hardly used but was missing the pto shaft and I had to give a arm and a leg for it, like $500. Looks like my firewood gathering just got to...

    What should I do? I went to an auction and there was a Ford cm274 Tractor including a 72 in finish mower, 52in snow blower and sweeper brush. They all looked in good condition and it ran good.

    Steel price is HIGH

    Stopped by my local steel supply to get a sheet of steel, 1/2x4ftx8ft. $326. Even the clerk was shocked. He said steel is going sky high. Guess I'm going to have to watch out for more scrap to make my projects. Just ordered a new plasma cutter so I'm getting excited to cut some iron. Bought a...

    Chainbox for Century-Branson

    Looked at the chainbox post a while back and really liked the idea but didn't want to put it on my fel so I came up with this idea. It is a box that I welded up out of scrap metal and fitted it on the rt side. It is held in place by the wt and a pin that slips into the window bracket. The pin is...

This is an other good reason to get a red tractor as it is safer going into the woods to haul out the winter supply of meat. And an other reason to get a fel as it comes in handy picking the deer up and hoisting...

    alternative to bucket hooks

    Alot of people are welding chain hooks on there buckets. I did it a different way. I welded a 2x2x1-4 angle iron on the top edge of my bucket that I cut 6, 3-8 slots in. This gives me 6 places that I can hook a chain plus it also makes my bucket stronger. I had this on my last tractor and I used...

    just got done making a stone bucket for my new century 3045. I made it out of scrap iron and the tines are made from car axles. I used them because they are forged and won't bend very easily. I just went out to an old stone pile and started digging and ripped out several buckets of sones and it...
