    My dog had a stroke yesterday

    Yesterday morning, about 15 seconds after I walked out the door for work. My wife heard a bang on the other side of the door and found my 10 year old Weim on the floor having what looked like a seizure. I picked him up an rushed him to the vet where they gave him a shot to. Relax him so we could...

    After 7 1/2 month... LTC in the mail

    Like the title says. Almost 8 months ago my wife and I completed our safety course and filed the paperwork. My license showed up in the mail yesterday.... No sign of the wife's yet. I actually got a call from the local PD asking why I did not disclose that I was cited for operating a vehicle...

    Maybe time for a new dump truck

    So I have a 09 F350 4x4 V10 dump with 25k miles. It has been reliable since new and has done everything I have asked it to. Mostly plowing and light landscaping duties. Problem is that I can no longer depreciate it from a tax standpoint. I looked at a new ford 350 and found a leftover 12 with...

    BX mower blade question

    So my father removed his blades and got them sharpened over the winter. I can not remember and he did not write down the stacking order of the washers and lock washer. Does anyone know weather a compression washer goes under and over the blade or is the blade placed over the spline then 2...

    Pick up bed into a trailer

    Like the title says. Has anyone done this before? We have the old bed off my fathers truck and the cross members that are under the floor were rotted out. The remainder of the bed is in great shape. I was thinking maybe we could turn it into a trailer.

    Curtis Cab L3700 SU

    Does anyone know if the Curtis Cab for the L3400 is the same one for the 3700. The website does not have a listing for the 37 and I called them and they did not know what a L3700 SU is.

    Kubota paint fade

    I have a 2010 or 2011 L3700 SU. It stays inside 85% of the time and I noticed the hood and fenders have faded quite a bit. The paint itself is still in real good condition and not all scratched or dented up. So today I loaded it up and brought it to a friend of mine who is a auto body guy. We...

    Kohler Engine

    I have a new walker mower with a 23HP Kohler ( wish it was a Kawi or Honda) and when I shut it down at low idle it will diesel for a few seconds before finally shutting down. What could cause this? Maybe low octane gas? Out of time? The mower is new apron 30 hrs and seams to do it more when it...

    L3700SU Power beyond

    I have a 2011 L3700SU with a Bota BH. The hydro lines that run to the BH are looped back together when not used with the BH... What else can I use them for? Hydro top link? Power angle? Anything?

    Rear blade

    So I have a l3700su and a 72" Befco land plane. The Befco works great, but it really is not the greatest thing to put pitch on the road. I looked at a 7 foot land pride at a dealer that was 800.00 +/- weight was in the 350 range. I thought that if I got a blade that I could of set . Than I could...

    Trailer registration in Maine

    I have 3 trailers, 2- 10k GVW equipment trailers and 1- 7500 GVW enclosed trailer. In Mass they cost 230.00 for the 7500 and 260.00 each for the 10k ones...each year plus yearly 39.00 inspections and yearly excise tax. What is the downside to registering in Maine @ 100.00 for a 5 year tag?

    Tractor Supply quick hitch problem

    I got a set of the TS quick hitch that go on the lower 3PH arms. I have been using them for a little while with no problems, but yesterday I was pulling my 72" Befco grader and 4 or 5 times one side or the other popped off the pin on the grader. Almost like it vibrated it just the right time and...

    I smell gear oil

    I had my L3700SU in for repair on the broken BH 77. While it was there I had the 50 hour service done ( mine had 33 hrs) but figured what the heck. Now I just went out to move some snow piles and there is a somewhat strong smell of gear oil. It is dark and I can not see anything dripping, but...

    Weak loader on BX23

    I had a BX22 in the past so I'm familiar with the limitations of the loader, my father has a BX23 and this morning I was over to help him remove his MMM. The easiest way for me was always to but the BH stabilizers down, and lift the front with the loader and pull the deck out from under. Come to...

    l 3700 PTO power

    I have a L3700 and I'm looking at a chipper for it, the one I'm looking at is a 6" and says it requires 30 HP to run. I checked the specs on my PTO and do not understand how it is rated. One spec says 30 HP and the other says something like 22. Can any one enlighten me on this?
