    That's the thing about N.E. "There isn't even pea sized pebble on my property" yet we are probably less the an couple to a few hours drive from each other & our pebbles are the size of VW bugs or bigger.. lol That is a 500cc Quad in the pic...

    Meat Grinder recommendations

    @gsganzer - We have gone through a couple Food Savers, the first one we had was actually a really good machine... 2nd one was ok... We now have a Weston Pro-2300 & I believe we are going on 5+ yrs with it. It is big & heavy but has ben a great vacuum sealer. Ours is used many, many times a...

    TC40D Electrical issue

    So all fuses are good... but are they getting power? If fuse #2 has no input power from the ignition switch, neither will any of the other fuses. The whole tractor would be essentially dead. The ignition switch on the TC series are semi-known to go bad... but so are the battery cables... so...

    Truck bed extender legality

    Heck I agree.. it is simple enough to build... just build 4ft or under & then like @Ford850 recommended it your load goes beyond just use a 1by or 2by & run it just past your load with a flag on it... you'll have a useful carrier either way & you can leave the trailer at home... (y)

    Truck bed extender legality

    As Thomas said... I would check your local state regulations... But from the WEB: The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs) require any commercial motor vehicle (CMV) transporting a load that extends more than 4 feet beyond the rear of the vehicle to be marked with a single red...

    Security Cameras

    IMHO this is only realistic if you are getting real-time notifications of events (& even at that you may not have a case)... If you want to just take some pictures of things that have happened in the past for you to review when you arrive at your property 3hrs away & realize something has...

    Workmaster 40 starting/electrical issues

    Your machine is much new than our NH, but a couple of ideas... - I would test the starter switch - voltage passes through it for all the above.. - I would check to see if you are getting any voltage at the Starter Solenoid when you turn the key to START... If you see voltage when you turn the...

    New Holland TC35D Factory Rear Remote

    @Peter Wirick I can't answer the Shop Manual question... (I keep meaning to purchase one but they are pricey). I would think it would... However, I have installed the NH 2nd & 3rd rear remote kits on our TC40D (as it already had the 1st installed), so the same as your TC35D. We...

    Can hooking up the backhoe be a one person job

    Ahh. that makes sense... Our machine does not require it, nor does it push the backhoe further back when it is put on... It tight right up against the machine... There is a bracket that the 3 point arms rest on when you the BH is attached. That's why I couldn't for the life of me think why...

    Can hooking up the backhoe be a one person job

    Better than what... not taking them off?? Our NH BH frame has a rest they set on... You lift them up.. backup & connect... Why would you take some thing off that is not required? How is it better if that is the design? & it does not change how far our BH sticks out... It is a full sub-frame...

    Can hooking up the backhoe be a one person job

    So if it is a full sub-frame backhoe it takes a little practice, especially if it is not on level (even) ground. We have a sub-frame Backhoe for our NH & it is definitely faster with 2 people but definitely doable by one. Our NH does not require removal of the 3pt hitch (nor would I want a...

    Workmaster 35, wont start

    One other thought... Have you checked / tested your battery cables? These were a common problem on older NH machines so I can not personally say it is an issue on a 2013 machine, but might be something you want to check. The cables were known for corroding internally (unseen), which caused...

    Picked up TC 45DA from dealer and found damage

    I agree... that is a ridiculous response especially being he didn't even call you... you had to track him down. I can tell you he would not be sending me the part.... He, his tech, & myself would be having a face to face conversation... non-of this over the phone stuff.

    @Newblue Hey sorry about that... Here is the correct part number SBA344952750... which has been replaced by SBA344952751 Messick's shows it as available in 3-7 days but I would check on that... Here is the link... Messick's - TC45DA w Supersteer RH cylinder

    @Newblue - Well sort of true.... the original part number is SBA344952870 is listed as being discontinued but the substitute replacement cylinder (part # SBA344952871) is definitely available. Granted it is not cheap but that is their issue... There is definitely a replacement cylinder...

    Box Blade Purchase - Conflicting information

    We run a BB1572, recommended by our dealer & we confirmed via the Land Pride specs on a 40hp New Holland TC40D & I don't think I would want to go smaller... There is a 100lbs different between the BB1272 & the BB1572... IMO with a box blade as long as your machine can handle it... weight is...

    Slow burn fuse

    If the manual is listing it as a fuse, then it probably is a fuse & not a fusible link. Did you test the main fuse yet... I would do that first... But to answer you question: Most of the Higher amperage auto fuses (MEGA/AMG/BF2 - AMI/MIDI - ANL) are almost always Slow Blow Fuses... & many...

    Buying new tractor - novice operator

    So IMHO even if you decide to move forward with a new tractor for the sole purpose of having a hydrostatic machine (which we have & like... a NH TC40D) you should still troubleshoot & possibly repair your current TC30. That machine should bring pretty good money in todays market with only...

    TC48 DA - What's the FMV?

    New Holland TC33DA - Engine Suddenly Stopped / Fuel Shutoff Solenoid OK

    @VegasDan - If I don't use my local dealer I pretty much use Partspring or Messick's I'm not a big fan of just throwing parts at something... However, I would definitely do the addition of the Starter Relay, there is no downside to installing it.... & it is pretty easy... For it you will...

    New Holland TC33DA - Engine Suddenly Stopped / Fuel Shutoff Solenoid OK

    @VegasDan - I cannot confirm this as I do not have a TC33da or the correct diagrams... But on our TC40D (series) tractors here is some info: The seat switch and the parking brake switch will not stop the engine from turning over. However they will cause the fuel solenoid to shut off... which...

    Anybody use Titan shrub puller

    @TmbrWlkr - we pull 2 1/2 - 3" stuff (especially if it is shallow root stuff), if it is stubborn stuff we just rock it back & forth & it usually pulls. The most important thing is awareness of your tractor's FEL / hydraulics capabilities & not push it... You can definitely break stuff... I...

    Tractor keeps stopping

    When you had the fuel filter bowl open to check / change the filter did you check to see if the fuel was free flowing correctly from the tank? It is just gravity feed from the tank to the filter housing but you should have a good strong steady flow of fuel if you open the shutoff at the fuel...
