    Bent my MTL Grapple

    It's not bad but thought the MTL naysayers might like to see it. What happened was I clamped down on a stump and it bent the gusset out which pulled the leg of the clamp in a little. Nothing a rosebud torch and a hammer won't fix. I guess the 2" cylinder applies more force than you actually need...

    Shipping Logistics

    Seems like this is happening more and more with USPS and FedEx. It's not just the shippers fault either. I ordered this part from a company that is based 6 hours away on August 25th. The order confirmation said it would process in 24-48 hours. After a few days passed I called and they said they...

    400+ft Internet, WIFI, & Cameras

    The subjects of long distant wifi and wifi security cameras come up from time to time so I thought I would share my setup. It works well and is about as low budget as you can get. My internet wifi system consists of a ZTE Velocity Hotspot Router on AT&T connected to a AR-GL300-EXT travel...

    Walk Behind String Trimmer to Brush Hog Conversion

    This is a project I've had on my to do list for a while that I finally got around to. So far the results are a resounding success. It squeals the belt a little every time I engage the drive so it may not last as long but it's only worn out one belt in 30+ years. The next thing I want to try...

    New to me storage tank

    I've run through the gambit on diesel storage. I started with 55 gallon oil drums and they started to rust inside after 4 years. I switched to plastic drums and one of those split this week. Thankfully it split above the fuel level and no spill occurred. I set out on a mission to find an...

    Corn Price Jump

    I just buy it in 30-40 lb bags to feed the wildlife but it has taken a big jump. Back a month or so it went up two dollars a bag for a 40 lb bag at Academy Sports. I switched to 30 lb bags from walmart because it was easier to access and easier on my back. Went to reorder today and it jumped...

    Parts Availability - Dealer Availability

    I recently saw a used Massey I would consider but doing research I don't find any dealers within a few hundred miles and online parts seem to be non existent. Are you all finding parts online or do you HAVE to go to a dealer to get them? I wonder why their dealer network is fading away?

    Side Discharge Finish Mower?

    Why would anyone make or want one? My finish mower is rear discharge and I can't imagine why you would want a side discharge model.

    Wait Time for new Garage Door

    Our 28 year old garage door recently broke another spring. It is uninsulated and been kind of funky for a while so we decided to get a new one. I got a couple estimates and decided to go through Home Depot. Got the order all configured and they charged my card for the $3391.00. Then they sent a...

    Spell Check

    On this forum and the GTT forum my spell check comes and goes since the format change. Misspelled words will underline in red but if I continue to type without stopping to correct right then the underline will go away. Sometimes when I stop right away and correct the spelling error it will...

    List all the Cars/Motorcycles You've Owned

    Face Shields

    I was in my local Home Depot today and they had the Bullard brand face shields in stock. It looks comparable to the premium HF face shield that has been out of stock since covid. $15 https://www.homedepot.com/p/Bullard-Professional-Face-Shield-HHFS880PM/308987077

    Birds in the Barn

    I had an open front barn built this year. I knew birds would become a problem and as I was working out there yesterday some small ones were investigating the area. No nests yet but I know that is the next step and then comes the poop all over everything. Do those fake owls work to detract birds...

    Ads on Facebook

    Don't trust ANY of them. Facebook has allowed the scammers to infiltrate both the marketplace AND the news feed. Most of the marketplace ads are the obvious low price tractors and such. The ones being allowed on the news feed are a little less obvious sometimes. I also noticed the marketplace...

    Services in nearby counties. (tags, vaccine, etc.)

    The county I live in has been very slow to make appointments for the Covid vaccine. I actually live closer to a smaller county so I went there to sign up. My sister lives across the state line and she also signed up in the same county I went to. We signed up on a Monday, got called back on...

    Inexpensive R14 looking variant

    I just ordered a pair of Roadone Cavalry M/T tires for my rail buggy project. I haven't found a comprehensive list of sizes but I have seen them advertised in many different sizes. I know they have the typical 15 inch sizes which would fit some X55 series John Deere tractors. I paid $250 for a...

    Ten Point

    Our resident 10 point buck stopped by last night but didn't partake in any corn. Probably just following the doe trail. Durn camera had reset itself so the image is foggy. I have to manually set the contrast on this one but once it records at the default setting I can't fix the foggy.

    How to measure a Hydraulic Cylinder

    I used your cylinders in my rebuild of an old John Deere loader. It has worked out okay for a fraction of the cost of OEM. One thing it does every time I start the tractor and raise the loader is the loader judders like something is binding. After a few cycles it works smooth. It has done it...

    Vines tangled up in tiller

    I have only used my new tiller a couple times. Each time it ends up trapping vines under the bearing protection tabs on the ends of the axle. The tines remain perfectly clean. They just wad up around the ends of the axle. Anybody have a solution? I'm thinking I will try sharpening the leading...

    6 ft Country Way Tiller

    I bought a 6 Ft Country Way Tiller from Rural King this week. This is their cheap "made in china" tiller. I think they may be phasing these out in favor of the King Kutter they have rebranded with their name on it. This one was $1500 before tax. It looks exactly like the no name "made in china"...

    Installed Generic Gauges on 4310 (long)

    My fuel and temperature gauges on my 4310 have been going to full sweep. Sometimes they would work but most of the time it read full and hot no matter the fuel level or actual temp. My tach and all my indicator lights still work fine. My temp sending unit tested okay and I replaced the fuel...

    Open Station AC/FAN

    This has turned into just a fancy fan but it works good still. Just thought I would share my half failed attempt at an open station AC unit. The original idea was some way to get cool air blowing on me as I work. I acquired a under dash evaporator unit off of eBay for about $75. I looked at...

    4310 temp sensor thread size?

    Anybody know the thread size on the 4310 temperature sensor? I am looking into sticking a generic gauge on mine and they all come with a 1/8" NPT sensor. I want to figure out if I can find an adapter bushing. Edit: May have found a solution. There is a plug under the sensor that is labeled...

    Google installed a Covid-19 tracker on my phone

    Ever looked at the Google settings in your phone? Google installed a Covid-19 tracker on my Android phone. It is turned off but there was no notice it was installed. While I was in there I found the setting to turn off personalized ads. In my Android phone it was under settings/google.

    Be Aware and Beware, It's Nesting Season

    Little birds are building nests every where they can find. I can't even work in the garage with the door open without them trying to build in my parts boxes. Today I readied the lawn mower to mow and saw they had a full nest built in the air intake. I got it all out I thought but some fell down...
