    Preventing Rodent Damage During Tractor Storage

    I had a problem keeping rodents out of bags of protein pellets. I took a 300 gal. tote, laid it on it's side, and then cut the "top" out. Then screwed the plastic back on to the metal, then put hinges on the metal to form a lid. I would off load the bag into the tote and then used a Victor...

    Preventing Rodent Damage During Tractor Storage

    I made a trap using the 5 gal bucket with the rod going through the top of the bucket with a can centered on the rod. Then smear the can with peanut butter. To this date I have never caught a mouse. I think I have too many coons and possums who eat the peanut butter before the mice have a...

    Flail Mower Let's talk flail mowers

    I mow a pasture that I want to leave about 8" high. I made some links to connect the 3 point at the toplink. I can adjust the cutting height easily. I don't need a pretty cut, just want the tops (weeds) cut off.

    rip rap as a water gap

    I get old sidewalls off of car tires from the tire shop and put them on the cable. Then wire the sidewall to the old tube gates. It does require constant surveillance and removal of limbs caught in and under the metal.

    Price Check Worth repairing my Yanmar 155D?

    The idea of a tree is something everyone has. Actually a pull type plow buried as deep as it will go, a disc, anything to create resistance. Separating that tractor and replacing a clutch is pretty simple. Parts aren't really expensive. Probably clutch disc, pressure plate, throw out...

    John Deere Flail Mower Feedback

    I've got a 5' Ford flail mower. I bought it for a man who bought it at an auction thinking it was a tiller! When he got it home and looked it over he realized the thing wouldn't till, so he sold it.

    Flail Mower Let's talk flail mowers

    I pulled the belt guard off last week, checked the belt, and greased the entire mower and hooked to 730 Case. Didn't mow until this afternoon, and we had 1.3" of rain last night, but I needed to "do something". I set it so the PTO was horizontal when mowing. I wanted to leave grass for...

    Have this flail mower with no identification. Does anyone recognize the manufacturer? Or tell me where to scrape to look for a tag. It just fits in the back of my truck, so it's 8' long. Was a Corp of Engr. piece of equipment at one time. I changed out the gearbox oil, and greased the...

    Adapting Ford loader to John Deere

    You have to get the loader towers in the correct position, not too far forward, not too far back. The steel under your tractor has to support the loader and everything you'll put in the bucket or pick up with any hooks. The front of the loader has to be anchored to the frame of the tractor for...

    Just an update. Got it all fabricated, mounted and been using. Bought a Massey 1246 loader and fabricated mounting brackets for Kubota L305DT. Works excellent. Found a seal/set for valve, part number 71512160. Had all the internal parts for the valve.

    Massey 1246 loader valve hookup

    I've got a Massey 1246 loader with a Nimco valve with hoses removed. Nimco seems to keep a REAL low profile. Can someone give a picture of where the ports on the valve should go to the loader? Thanks
