    T4.75 Powerstar leaking hydraulic oil only while driving?

    My T4.75 Powerstar with EHSS is leaking hydraulic oil only while driving somewhere around the hydraulic oil filter. Can't see anything much else wrong. Cleaned the filter operated the loader and it seemed all good. Started to drive the tractor around and sure enough it's leaking oil again. I...

    Boomer 1030 need a replacement battery

    I tried to get ready for spring here in Canada and charged the battery up. It shorted out a cell in the original battery (11 years). So I am in the market for a new one to replace the old Yuasa 46B24R(S) that came with it. Anyone replaced their battery yet that actually fits like the old one...

    T4.75 Powerstar 3.2l engine coolant leak

    Well... My Powerstar felt sick again @ 166hrs. Loosing coolant. After a while I noticed there was some coolant on the floor. Not good. The problem ended up being the clamps on the big radiator hoses being loose for some reason. Tightened it up and all is O.k.

    dealer install PTO 540E (economy PTO)?

    There is nothing much to find about this topic, so I thought I'll go and ask: Can the dealer install the economy PTO (available as a factory option) afterwards? I traded today my TC55DA up to a T4 Powerstar. It has almost all I want and then some. The only thing missing is the 540 economy PTO...

    Boomer 1030 50hr service

    I serviced my Boomer 1030 first 50hr service today. Also if I had something to complain about, than it would be the hydraulic oil filler location on the rear. That thing is really placed in a stupid location. I tried 3 different funnels until I rigged something up to get some new oil in there...

    welding crimp on teeth on the bucket?

    I've got a 757c hoe on my tractor and the @#$% crimp on teeth came off of the bucket and luckly I found them after a short search. There is no crimp on tool around here that I can get a hold of to recrimp these teeth. Now I am thinking to weld the those teeth solid over the original teeth. Will...

    hydraulic hose

    Hi Guys! Wonder if little cracks in the hydraulic hose is a good reason to change it, or just wait until she blows??? I guess the sun dried that rubber out and now I have all kinds of tiny cracks right were the hose makes a 90 degree angle. A little off topic, I know, but my TC55DA is working...
