    The Front Porch posts

    I've noticed that in the past few days that anything posted in Front Porch don't show up when I click on new posts. I have to manually switch to FP to see newest posts. Did something change? For example: I used to click on new posts to see if anything new was posted in Groan part quatre. Past...

    XR4041HC service and parts manuals

    A while back someone posted a link (or a source to the cloud or dropbox) to download the pdf manuals. I can't find the post using the search function. At the time I did download them but my previous laptop died and the files were not recoverable. Does anyone have the link?

    MEME and Joke threads gone

    Besides the great tractor stuff posted here I feel an emptiness. Now that FP is gone so is one of my daily enjoyments which was checking for new jokes and memes mainly posted by CowboyRon, Myself, and others. They made my day. I did log in to the new TNT forum and have watched and read the posts...

    Kubota Car

    Went to a local car show today. About 270 cars made the show but I saw one really RARE car. It is a street rod made with a Kubota diesel engine mated to a 5 spd. manual trans. The man that built it lives in FL. but the owner has residence in FL and NY and brought it to the show. Claims to get 50...

    Rear 3 pt linkage to raise and lower arms

    I made up some brackets and connecting rod to raise and lower my 3 pt arms from the back of the tractor.

    Lorenz 730 Blower

    Got a snow blower for my tractor. I wasn't really looking for one since my front QA snow plow is doing a great job plowing snow. While scanning the web the other day and I found a used older Lorenz 730 series double auger blower for sale at a price that was too good to be true. I know its an...

    TBN site running slow

    Check your hose clamps with or without a cab

    Just an FYI. Usually, hose clamps are not on my list of things to check before running the tractor. Two weekends ago we had about 26" or so of snow. I used the tractor plowing the snow and noticed the cab wasn't getting warm. No heat and the temp gauge was climbing way above the normal range...

    IHI 444 info needed

    I'm considering buying a 1988 International S1800 tractor (as in tractor trailer). It is no longer used as a tractor but instead has an 8 dump pickup bed on it (so its a big toy). I've been told it has the IDI 444 engine which is a 7.3L naturally aspirated engine. Website info says this engine...

    Chain, storage boxes for trailers

    Went to a car show / flea market yesterday. Picked up a couple old Coast Guard large ammo boxes cheap minus the ammo. $10. each and they will hold a lot of chain, straps, or whatever. They are 17 1'2"L x 7 1/2"W x 14" deep. Very little rust. Sandblasted the rust off, primed and painted and will...

    I've been wanting a 4WD indicator and a Voltmeter for my tractor so I ordered the parts last week. Today I received the rest of my parts and got everything installed.

    Seat Cover for LS tractor

    Any LS owners bought a seat cover for their tractor seat? I am looking for one to fit my seat to keep it clean. I'm still using the original plastic but it won't last forever. I did a search a few days ago and found this site but they don't list seat sizes or prices. COVERALLs Mid Back Seat...

    Drop in Stake Pocket D Rings

    I've seen a few posts on drop in stake pocket D Rings and priced a few. Cheapest I found was $22 each (incl. S&H) by R&P on Ebay but only rated for 5K max (1600 working load) $30 each plus S&H through Kaufmann, $20 each (for 6 or more) plus S&H through Johnson Trailers $30 each plus S&H...

    2016 Chevy 2500HD

    Amazing how things snowball. In Feb. 2014 I purchased my LS XR3037HC. With loaded tires and attachments it was slightly over the weight limit of my H&H 7K tilt bed trailer so a few months later (Sept. 2014) I replaced the trailer with a new PJ TF22' 14K full tilt bed trailer. The new trailer...

    Larin TGL-500 Receiver Lift

    Anyone own one or know of something similar. I occasionally need to take my 100 gallon propane tanks to the store for a refill. I also need to load other heavy items from time to time. It is a bit overkill to strap the tank(s) upright on my 22' tilt bed trailer so I'm looking for a simpler...

    LS tractor bucket flop

    Here's a brief video showing the bucket flop when put in dump mode. In dump mode I can lift the bucket a few inches like there is no pressure. When dropping the loader arms to back drag the bucket will curl up a few inches requiring further dump action with the joystick to get the desired back...

    LS tractor bucket flop problem

    I've noticed a lot of LS tractor owners have a bucket flop problem. Raise, lower, and curl functions all seem to work fine. But when you go to dump mode in order to back drag you have to bump the joystick to get pressure to keep the bucket where you want it. If you just go to dump mode and lower...

    No 3pt or No loader function but HST does work?????

    Trying to help my neighbor diagnose his tractor. He has a GC2300 with loader. According to him, He was using it when the loader and 3 pt. just stopped working.

    Radio wiring for XR3037HC cab models

    OK guys, for those of you installing aftermarket radios in your cabs here is the wiring for the factory plug. This will be correct for all 3000 series cabs and I suspect the 4000 series cabs will be the same. Picture 1 shows the 6 pin radio harness from tractor Pink wire separate from the...

    Loader Joystick handle loose

    For those of you with cab models my loader joystick handle loosened up while I was out plowing snow today. I don't know if open station joysticks have the plastic shroud cover but tightening the lock nut should be the same. It was an easy 5 minute fix. 1) Remove small round plastic front screw...

    February 1-2 snowstorm

    Just a couple pics of today's plowing. Had 12" in the driveway when I left for work at 5AM today. Found another 5" when I got home. 17" so far in 2 days and still snowing a little. Outside temp right now at 5:30 PM is 2* with a wind chill of -10*. Nice to get some seat time. Punxatawny Phil says...

    Woods BH 750-3 Backhoe

    Picked up a new to me BH750-3 backhoe today with a sub frame. Over the next few weekends I have to adapt the sub frame to fit (bolt up) to my tractor. Once fitted and tested I'll have the rest of the winter to clean it up and repaint it. It is PTO pump driven and works very smooth. Previous...

    Cab mirrors relocation

    I posted a reply to another thread that the mirrors are very close to the door (less than an inch) when opening. Also, numerous times upon entering the cab I hit the mirrors knocking them out of adjustment. So I made up a couple brackets that move the mirrors forward 4" and out 1". Also noted...

Has the hand crank on top for setting the amps. Came with 40' lead with clamp for ground and a 48' lead with stinger. I saw it at...

    Filled my rear tires today

    Finally got around to filling my rear tires. I put 39 gallons of -20 degree windshield washer fluid in each. At 7 lbs per gallon that added about 546 lbs. more ballast. I filled each tire until fluid came out with the stem in the 11 O'clock position. That should be 75-80 percent. The tire...

Since I bought a new tractor in Feb. I am now at the 7K trailers maximum capacity. Actually I am probably a little...

    New trailer hitch law in NY?

    PHD Hydraulics on XR3037HC Rear Remotes - GPM flow

    I'll post this here instead of the hydraulics forum because it pertains to my LSXR3037HC. Anyone know what the flow rate is for the rear remotes? It's probably the same as the R series. I can't find anything in the owners or service manual other than the relief valve setting pressure. I already...

    Well, new to me. Found a good deal on CL for a PHD. Went to look at it. Gearbox felt nice and tight, no slop. But frame has seen some abuse.
