    What did you do for your tractor today?

    Yes. The tractor didn't come with a toolbox and nowhere to mount one. It was put them there or on the side of the loader mount. They wouldn't last long on the loader. I designed the plates to wrap around and bolt to the cab mount on top of the rear axle. They are made from 3/8 plate and cut on a...

    Hydraulic/Trans fluid

    Warren Oil Co was the manufacture of the 303 and the settlement was 10.8 million. It was sold under various labels. They also manufacture Travellers brand. I would not use it. There are no standards for hydraulic fluid. No one is checking to see if it is what is represented on the label. I...

    4WD Detent Ball

    I found the detent ball that holds the 4WD selector in place stuck to the magnet on the transmission drain plug. Anyone know whats involved in putting it back in and why it keeps coming out? Tractor is a Mahindra 2565 Cab tractor built by TYM. It looks close to a T554 but with a little more HP.

    Add Rear Three Point Control Lever and Toolboxes

    The handle is made from 1/4x1-1/4 flat steel with a handlebar grip slid on. To connect under the tractor I removed the original linkage and welded a cutoff bolt to to so the swivel joints would slide over it and be held on with a cotter pin.

    Add Rear Three Point Control Lever and Toolboxes

    Mahindra 2565

    I have only had my 2565 a few months. So far I love it. There is a Facebook group for the 2500 series tractors. You could ask there. Its a new group so not a lot of members yet but very helpful.

    Mahindra Universal Tractor Fluid Equivalent

    I want to change the transmission hydraulic fluid in my shuttle shift 2565. The owner's manual calls for "MAHINDRA UNIVERSAL TRACTOR FLUID". There are no other specifications listed. What does Tractor Supply have that is equivalent to this. Looking at their website I see ISO 32, 46, and 68.

    TYM Mahindra Equivalent and AC Help

    I recently bought a Mahindra 2565. I have been told it is made by TYM. Would anyone know which TYM tractor is equivalent if there is one? Also, would anyone happen to know the refrigerant capacity? I blew a hose this morning. The hose will be replaced/repaired. The AC guy said he will pull a...

    Bought a new deere 26g

    If the 26g is anything like the 27d you may not get much use out of the 1 foot bucket. On the 27d the pin that the bucket and thumb rotates around it 16 inches long (if memory serves me). This makes it impossibe to make a 1 foot wide ditch deeper than the length of the bucket.

    John Deere 27D

    I found the answer to my question. There is no grease fitting for the back end of the boom swing cylinder. I cant believe John Deere would not provide a remote grease fitting for this pivot point. I was able to download the parts manual for the 27D and it shows no grease fitting.

    John Deere 27D

    Does the cylinder that swings the hoe left and right on a 27D have a grease fitting on both ends? The cylinder extends way back inside the machine and I can not see a way to get to the back end of it. The exposed end has one. The owners manual makes no mention on one at this location.

    FEL Tree Trimmer

    This is private property and it is not in my yard, around my house, or my shop. Don't give a F$%&* about the "mass of ugliness". Just cut it again next year. Certainly no snowboarders or recreationists. Again this is posted private property. And to repeat I am not trimming trees around my...

    FEL Tree Trimmer

    I am interested in building a tree trimmer like the one in the video. I would probably use a single 24" blade similar to the video or maybe two or three smaller blades mounted vertical. The company appears to be out of business. Any ideas on what the specifications on the hydraulic motor...

    Decode My Tractor

    After spending many hours on the net trying to figure out how to decode my Ford 4610 I believe it was assembled December 07 1983. According to the second pic the serial number may indicate its an "84" (why two different serial num in each model year). Is any of this correct? What else can be...
