    Pulling steering wheel and removing dash??

    I need to remove the dash on my Kubota M 6800, so the steering wheel has to come off. Obviously I need a special tool. Thought about adapting a gear puller but don't want to damage the plastic. Any tips?? I assume this is just a splined shaft with a pressed on wheel. Are there any other...

    What tires do you prefer on a big truck?

    I will soon be in the market for tires for my 06 F 350 SRW, 4 WD. Size is 275/65-20. Looks like its either Michelin LTX A/T II, or Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo 2, Dunlop Rover MT, or several versions of the Goodyear Wranglers. BF Goodrich does not make this size, so I would have to go up one...

    Oasis report??

    I have read about running an Oasis report on a used Ford truck to see what warranty work has been done on it. Does anyone know anything about these and if so, how does one go about obtaining a report on a specific VIN #? I am the gambler who just bought a '06 F 350 diesel, despite warnings and...

    Help me decide on F 350 please!!!

    I was not really shopping for a truck but ran across a 06 F 350 (SRW) Lariat 4 WD diesel with 175,000 miles. I will trade my '96 F 250 4 WD (195,000 mi). I use it primarily for hunting, so not an everyday driver. I do tow a gooseneck pulling a 8,000 lb Kubota M 6800 and implements, which...

    Building permits required???

    Several years ago, I built a 40' x 40' pole shed on a 300 acre wooded tract for tractor storage. I realize laws vary in each state or county, (I am in Greenville Co., S.C.) but was curious if you guys obtained permits for similar work. I operated under the premise that since this was not a...

    Show off your MIG welding projects!

    Many times I have wished I could weld! I am thinking about buying a Miller 135 MIG as a beginning machine (I don't want to go to a 220V due to my shop limitations). So help me justify buying one! What projects have you done (or repairs) that could be done with a welder of this size? Give me...

    More plow talk.....

    Just bought a Ford 101 three bottom plow for $375. Has lots of wear, so I plan to restore it. I have three questions for you plow experts. First, I am having trouble finding landsides. The rear is 21 " with 5 holes and the other two are 16" with 3 holes. If I don't replace these, my frog...

    Great source for hard to find plow parts!!

    Thought I would share a great resource for plow parts. Information about all makes of plows is really hard to find (or at least was for me). This site has detailed information about plowshares, shins, moldboards, etc. It includes detailed information on dimensions, hole patterns, and size of...

    Where to find plow parts?? Help!

    I just bought a used plow and it was working great, until I snagged a buried rock. I was probably going a little fast but I never expected any big rock where I was. Unfortunately, my plow (Ford Model 10-216 two bottom) has no trip protection or shear pins. I broke the bolts attaching the...

    does a 2" bung swivel connector exist?

    Does anyone make a connector for a 2" bung on a 55 gal. metal drum that allows a standard hand pump to be installed without spinning the entire pump and hose assembly. In other words, that would allow just dropping in the suction pipe and having a coupling that could be tightened with a wrench...

    levelling ground after discing??

    After I disc up a food plot, the ground is of course fairly irregular. I made a drag harrow out of 3 pieces of heavy angle iron linked together with chain and then drag it around, and this works pretty good. My question is do any of you guys attach a drag harrow to the back of the disc harrow...

    disc plow?

    I found an old used disc plow with two round disc rather than moldboards. Sorry not to have pictures, but was just curious as how a disc plow compares to the traditional moldboard style. Seems there is lots of force being placed on a disc running almost at a right angle to the direction of...

    Teach me the basics about plows

    I am considering a good plow to cut up food plots before discing. I know nothing about them so please clue me in on what would be recommended to pull behind a 68 hp M6800, 4 WD, with loaded ag tires. Soil varies, but has some clay and rocks. My disc just doesn't cut well unless it is somewhat...

    Advice on tilling food plots? disc vs. plow vs. cultivator

    Any advice on making food plot preparation easier? I have a M 6800 Kubota and a 20 X 20 disc harrow which weighs around 700 lbs. We plant about 20 plots of various sizes, some tend to be a little rocky. Some have clay. Others are good riverbottom soil. We usually plant in early fall and...

    Which top link for a M 6800?

    I know hydraulic top links are discussed frequently, but before I order mine from CCM, just wondered if anyone else has installed one on a M 6800. I believe I need a Cat I 18" to 26.5" cylinder. Does that sound right? That seems to fit my range of motion. Even though my tractor is 68...

    Do you use Round-Up on your food plots?

    I have various sized food plots scattered about a 300 acre tract here in S.C. We plant them yearly with a wildlife mix (wheat, rye, oats, clover) since this is fairly low budget and since we broadcast the seed. We usually plant in late August or September. By this time of year, the clover is...

    What trail camera do you like??

    I'm thinking about buying a digital trail camera. What model would you recommend? Is the infra-red feature worthwhile? Which one should I buy?

    design of 55 gal. fuel station

    I realize this topic has been covered many times, but I need a good way to pick up diesel and fill tractor. If I use a 55 gal drum with a Tuthill rotary hand pump, will an inline filter cause too much resistance? Can someone explain or better yet show pictures of a 55 gallon drum plumbed...

    Oil & Fuel  Ideas for fuel transfer???

    I am tired of hauling 5 gallon containers of diesel! And whoever invented those "ventless" containers?? It seems those have become all that is available and they really are a pain. Does anyone else hate them? Man, are they slow to empty. I am thinking about another way to haul diesel. I...

    Where to get tire repaired??

    I ran over a pointed beaver stump and punctured my front tire, size 9.5x24, which has a tube. Of course replacing the tube is easy but where should I go to get the tire repaired. The puncture is on the center of the tread and is C shaped. It looked small when deflated but when my shop placed...

    Tires  tubes vs. tubeless tires???

    What determines whether a tractor tire has a tube or is tubeless?? My M6800 has tubes in both wheels, and I just flatted a rear last week and flatted a front today. I was just wondering why some are tubeless. Other than ease of plugging flats, are there any advantages of tubeless? Finally...

    how to load a rear tire??

    I flatted my rear tire on a M 6800 Kubota. I was able to drain the water/antifreeze, remove the tire, load it onto a trailer, and had it repaired with a new tube. Now I will reinstall it and load it myself. I plan to use water and antifreeze, as that is what my dealer used and what's in the...

    rear tire flat--advice needed

    I have a rear tire flat on my Kubota M 6800 and it is loaded. My dealer loads the tires with antifreeze not CaCl. I am trying to decide if I should have my dealer come out and pick up wheel and repair it (I have no idea what he would charge, he's closed today) Or I can remove the wheel, slide...

    trapping wild hogs

    We have seen several feral hogs on our hunting property recently. They don't seem to be plentiful, but I guess that will change with time! We are talking about trapping them. Any experience here? Have seen plans online for both closed type traps and open corral type enclosures. We have put...

    Source of trash is water separator filter??

    This weekend my 4 year old Kubota M6800 began to lose power and then shut down, and would not restart. It seemed fuel related so I removed the water separator screen/filter and found it packed with what looked like red clay or sediment. I just had a major service in November and the hours are...

    How to move a heavy pipe???

    I need a culvert pipe for a creek crossing. Found what seems a great price on a concrete pipe, a 4' diameter by 16' long concrete pipe, like new. Problem is, it's 30 miles away, and I would have to load it, transport it 30 miles, and unload it at the creek, and place it. The price is $150...

    Gooseneck trailer locks?? Securing a tractor?

    Does anyone recommend a specific gooseneck trailer locking mechanism to prevent or discourage theft? I leave my trailer in my shed behind a locked gate, but if someone wanted it, they could find a way to get to it, as the property is isolated and uninhabited. I realize locks are not foolproof...

    Changing a damaged hydraulic oil filter

    My Kubota M6800 has two hydraulic filters side by side underneath. I noticed a leak and when I crawled underneath the tractor, found one filter bent. Guess it was damaged by a stick or stump from below. It seems to be leaking from the seal, so I assume the seal was distorted. My question is...

    Electric over hydraulic valve malfunction...help!

    I picked up my new FEL with a grapple. It has a WRLong electric over hydraulic valve. My dealer installed it and the service was pretty poor! That's another story. When they connected the grapple and quick connects for the first time, the grapple would open but not close. While I watched...

    How do you wash your tractor??

    We have no well and no electricity at our 300 acre hunting property. I have built a pole barn to store our equipment and now have a 250 gallon aboveground cistern to collect rainwater, so water is now available. I have a small Honda water pump (WX10) that produces up to 43 psi so I can hose...

    how to heat metal to straighten?

    Another dumb question but here goes. Several parts on a disc are bent, such as where the top link attaches. These parts are simple steel flat stock, up to 1/4 inch thick. Never having worked metal or welded, what is the best was to straighten these parts. Obviously I need to heat them, but...

    Beaver issues??

    This may be a little inappropriate but sorta related. I have a small creek, normally 6 to 20" deep that empties into a larger river (1 to 4'deep) . For the last 5 years, beavers are taking over, for in a 300 yard span there are dozens of dams. We have used our tractor to pull out dams with...

    Front-End Loader  Anyone used a Markham back hoe (on FEL)?

    Happened to see on Markhams Welding website a "back hoe" that mounts on a QA FEL. Obviously, this is a limited use implement but was curious if anyone has any knowledge of this. I saw a previous reference to a "Quick Spade" but this actually has a bucket that curls. A real backhoe is...

    Front-End Loader  Favorote Quick Attach FEL attachments???

    Now that I will have a universal quick attach on my Kubota M6800 FEL, what useful attachments can I use? In other words, what new toys am I not thinking about? Obviously grapples are the rage here on TBN, but what else have you guys found useful? What skid steer implements would cross over to...

    valve kit advice for a FEL needed!!

    I am purchasing a Kubota LA1002 loader for my M-6800. I believe it comes with a control valve and all of the hydraulics that are required. My question is that I plan to add a Markham grapple later and it seems an electric over hydraulic valve is the way to go. Does this third function valve...

    Are all buckets created equal?

    After reading many posts, I have begun to decide an a FEL for my Kubota M-6800. I will stick with the Kubota brand (LA 1002) since I have the standard transmission. And since my next purchase will be a grapple (probably a Markham 60" standard duty or perhaps a light duty, or maybe a W. R...

    front loader advice needed for Kubota M6800

    I have a Kubota M6800 4WD and am considering a front end loader. My dealer recommends the Woods LU 126 or 132, but I also am considering the Kubota LA1002 or LA1162. My questions are what's the difference between the two Kubota Models? Is the lift capacity the main difference or are there...

    which trailer to buy? Help!!

    I have a 1996 F-250 diesel and am buying a trailer to pull a Kubota M6800 (loaded tires and front weights) and a BB720 cutter. Total weight about 8300 lbs. I only will use it 4 or 5 times yearly for trips of under 50 miles. I am tired of borrowing or depending on others, and neglect servicing...
