    Toplink  ? about the toplink on a IronCraft land plane

    A little while back I purchased an IronCraft 72" Land plane (3606) from my local dealer. I had other issues at hand, so it just sat underneath a tarp near my carport. So the other day I had the flail mower off of the tractor anyway, so I figured I would go ahead and hook up the land plane and...

    50 hour fluid and filter change cost?

    I finally settled on Shell Rotella T6 15W-40 full synthetic for engine oil, Lucas Synthetic Universal Hydraulic Fluid 10100, and Amsoil Severe Gear synthetic 80W-90. I have the filters that I picked up from my dealer, and just waiting for the Amsoil to come in.

    50 hour fluid and filter change cost?

    I am having trouble figuring out what type and brand of hydraulic fluid to use. TYM is specifying "API GL-4 Grade". Some people recommend Traveler Universal Premium Tractor Fluid, but on the other hand I read elsewhere that this is not appropriate for hydrostatic transmissions. The gear oil...

    50 hour fluid and filter change cost?

    This should do the job of holding the drained hydraulic fluid until I can transfer it into the used 5 gallon containers. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Medium-Mixing-Tub-A-41/318924439#overlay

    50 hour fluid and filter change cost?

    Curious as to what the typical charge for having a dealer do the 50 hour maintenance on a T474HC would likely be? I have watched videos of this service, and it doesn't seem too tough, but some did comment on some difficulties with some drain plugs and the hydraulic fluid filter because of...

    Really, really dumb question about difference between off road and on road diesel fuel.

    Now I will admit, I don't know a darn thing about diesel fuels. Never touched a diesel motor, much less owned one before I bought my tractor several months ago. A friend of mine told me to use the off road diesel, since it is significantly cheaper, and basically the same as the on road stuff...

    Combo stump bucket and tree puller?

    Realistically, I don't expect to be pulling up any "trees" more than around 3 inches in diameter. Bigger stuff is for the chainsaw, leaving just a stub in the ground to deal with using the tractor. And even then, I will choose to go around more trees than I will want to remove. No sense living...

    For the record, the soil here is mostly sand. There may be pockets of clay here and there, but for the most part it is going to be sand with loam from fallen leaves and tree detritus on top. So it should be pretty easy digging. Of course, the trees might be compensating with a wider root...
