    Would You Loan It Out?

    I know a fellow like that, no three or four. They borrow for free, never return it so I have to go pick it up.

    What are the most reliable tractors to own?

    Yamar has been making tractors for years. We had one 45+ years ago. John Deere has used Yanmar engines in their compact tractors for years and due to an agreement between the two companies Yanmar quit exporting to the US.

    Hydraulic Side Tilt For 3PH--Single or Double Acting?

    Your current vertical lift arms are fixed with an adjustment on one or both. This keeps things on an even keel side to side. A single action cylinder will destroy that ability. For example you want a rear blade to cut deeper on one side in relation to the other.

    Will 10 Horsepower actually matter on the same size tractor?

    25% increase in power? Yes! Farm tractors for years have been 10-15hp between different models. Ex: 32, 38, 45, 55, 67, 83, 110, 125hp in one popular brand from a few years back and there was definitely a difference in performance

    My ‘93 Ford would overheat and very frustrating. It would blow coolant out the overflow tube on top of radiator. Pulled the radiator to get cleaned internally but when they started cleaning it sprung a leak and I was told, “not worth messing with.” Passages were half plugged and passages rotted...
