    Off-loading material from a flatbed trailer

    That crank system won’t work on my trailer… the bed is too low to allow for the rotation of the handle… bummer… instead of a handle install a large nut on the end of the roll up pipe and use a 3/4 harbor freight ratchet. I took the handle off my gooseneck horse trailer and put a 1-1/4 nut on...

    Anybody using a backhoe attachment on their CUT?

    I only have a towable backhoe so my personal opinion is if the 580 is in good mechanical shape I would build or buy a narrow bucket and thumb for the 580. you could rent a tractor loader backhoe in the same size as your current tractor for a few days and try it out before selling your big backhoe.

    OBD2 code reader for tractors

    Flat fixers, Slime vs Fix-a-Flat vs others.

    The plugger works without taking tire off the rim, especially useful for liquid filled tires. It’s a quick and sometimes permanent fix. If not permanent it will slow the leak down considerably giving you enough time to get back to the barn.

    Anybody know who made this 6’ Tiller with Front Wheels?

    No mine is different but the basic build is like Baltic. My gear box looks like the rear end of a truck and runs in the dirt. That’s why most gear boxes have bad front seals and bearings everything else is built like a tank. They raised the gearbox on their newer models. I was just giving you a...

    Air conditioner woes

    It’s direct drive. The squeal was the bushings on startup. Electric motors are amazing sometimes if their under a light load and never stop they can run for years with bad bushings/bearings they interally levitate like a magnetic train. But will not restart once stop.

    Where can I get weld plates for SSQA attachments that fall off?

    I have had to tweak about 1/2 of my quick attachments to make them more secure or even to latch. Enlarged a few holes with 1/4 die grinder and welded a few 3/8 flat bar pieces on some. I think the lighter weight loaders on some tractors twist just enough to cause these problems Vs the heavier...
