    Replacement Trailer Type & Sizing

    Yes, the tilt beds do add a premium to the cost. But, I don't have to lift or raise heavy ramps anymore. My back appreciates that. The extra length lets me adjust the load for more or less tongue weight. Its not usually a problem as the rear of my 2500 barely drops an inch or two with loaded...

    LD 266 stops when brake pedal released.

    Were you sitting on the seat when you released the brake after starting? My mower will only stay running if the brake is on or if I'm sitting on the seat. Same with engaging mower deck, only will engage and keep running if on the seat. I'd suspect you have a bad seat switch. Also check your...

    Replacement Trailer Type & Sizing

    I upgraded from a 20' 7K tilt bed to a 22' 14K tilt bed trailer 9 years ago. I went with a PJ model TF (full tilt). Its listed as a 22' but actual deck length incl. tail is 23'9". Gives me plenty of room to adjust a load. Mainly use for hauling vehicles, implements, and tractors. I like that the...

    Hydraulic scissor lift won't go down.

    In the middle, between the 2 cylinders is a safety lock. It must be released to let it come down. The directions should show you how to release the safety lock. You may have to raise it a bit more to release the latch.

    3 point hitch won't go down

    Welcome to TBN........... Have you checked the control valve below your seat? Usually there is a knob the controls how fast the 3 pt will drop. If the knob is fully clockwise the valve is closed and won't let the 3pt. go down.

    Trailer question - skid steer

    It tilts about 11 degrees before the tail touches the ground so not much would dump off it.

    Grab hooks for LL1102 loader bucket

    I wasn't sure of the metal thickness on top of the bucket so I added a piece of 3/16" angle all the way across and welded my hooks to that.

    Trailer question - skid steer

    I have a PJ 14K tilt bed model TF 22' (actual just under 24' including tail). I added a winch and made D-rings that drop into the stake pockets. The axles are placed back further than most other brands so its not real long behind them. Weighs just under 4K. Tow with a Chevy 2500HD crew cab 4x4...

    I'm brand new and have a question

    You can run hoses from the rear remotes to the front. I did it and use them to operate a hydraulic thumb on my forks and to angle a snow plow in winter. Bought hose and fittings at tractor supply. Ran them under the tractor and zip tied in place. I posted a thread listing all materials used but...

    Removing speakers on MT342HC

    Sorry, no photos but when I raised my roof I only lifted it high enough for the support rod to hold it. Was less than a 45 degree angle which still gave plenty of room to access anything in there. I think the front of the roof was up maybe 2' so pretty sure 10'6" will be high enough. If I recall...

    Removing speakers on MT342HC

    The roof is hinged at the rear. one nut on each side and two nuts in front and the roof lifts up. There is a rod inside the roof to support it when lifted.

    trying to price a trailer before the auction

    When I was looking for a trailer back in 2012-14 I went to several auctions that included different trailers. I was very disappointed to find trailer plugs cut off, tires shot, non functional lighting, brakes, decking that needed replacing etc. I hoped they would go for cheap knowing the amount...

    LS XR4145HC starting problem....

    The ground cable may be corroded internally where you cant see it. Try connecting a jumper cable from battery to frame and try to start again. Could also be the positive cable with internal breakdown.

    new (to me) email scam

    I get emails about my amazon, email and paypal accounts being frozen. I never open them. I suspect it is a scam and just delete them. I do log into each of those secured accounts (but not from the emails someone sent) to check if there are any notifications but there never is any problem.

    Anybody get Shocked After ordering?

    When you agreed to the purchase and made your down payment did your receipt show the full agreed price. If so you should be able to get your tractor at that price. They can't add more to an agreed contract price. Contact an attorney.

    Needed bigger FEL

    If your Kubota has the standard quick attach bucket you can buy a larger bucket (wider and taller). The problem may be that your loader hydraulics may not be able to lift it depending on the weight. Quickattach is one company that sells larger buckets. I'm sure there are many others too.

    The Front Porch posts

    I check new posts daily and prior to 3-4 days ago the Groan Part Quatre did show up. I would then copy or download (save) the memes. I never had to go to front porch to find the groan thread new memes before. Was the Groan thread recently moved to front porch?

    3cyl Diesel Not 'Warming Up'

    In the first post you stated diesel got into the oil. Has that contaminated oil and filter been changed yet? I'm not sure if that would make a difference on running.

    Do I have a bad battery?

    Fuel filter been replaced lately. If so, then have you checked your glow plugs to ensure they are working. Sounds like your battery is good if it cranks over easily just not enough heat in the cylinders to fire.

    Truck & Trailer ideas to tow 14,000 and be under 26,000 pounds

    So the GCVWR of truck and trailer is 29,700. Its been many years since I took math in school but I think 29,700 is greater than 26,000. Many states go by GCVWR not actual weight and would require a CDL to operate your truck/trailer.

    Bobcat 843 door lock

    The chain & padlock will do for now. Unbolt the latch & lock assy. from inside and take to a locksmith. They can change the tumblers and make you a couple keys then bolt it back in.

    Sometimes people in the south forget where they're living

    We did that one year on a trip to visit the inlaws in Florida. Inlaws took us to a flea market. It was 50 deg so we wore short sleeve shirts and shorts. Everyone else there had heavy clothes and jackets and looked at us like we were nuts.

    Need advice on tie rod end removal

    Get one of these kits. Available on Amazon for under $22. I wouldn't heat anything. I've seen guys that broke the tie rod hole or steering knuckle from heating and hitting with a hammer.

    Sounds like your differential lock is stuck. With both rear wheels locked they tend to push in a straight line forward reducing steering by the front wheels.

    need crosover chart or something to be able to cross my kioti cx to something else.

    Welcome to TBN....... Are you sure its a CX2510? Only Kioti tractors I see are for CK2510 or CS2510 which have Daedong 1.4L and Shibaura 1.1L engines respectively. Don't see any CX models.

    Have any strange delivery experiences being rural?

    For us, UPS, FedEx, and USPS have been great for many years. Always gave a Xmas card with cash to regular drivers. Larger packages are left on front porch or by garage door. Being retired I usually meet the drivers outside to get my packages when I see the truck pull up. I think my regular USPS...
