Re: Backhoe weight

Ritchie specs say the 2WD is 14,285 and max weight is 17,545- which I believe is their way of saying 4WD. Bruce

Re: LGP tracks and then some

Let the engine set for a day or two without running. Then unscrew the engine oil drain plug, down to the last thread. Make note of the first few drops of liquid before you plug the plug away. If clear water; there is hope. If it is anti-freeze; well there is not need for the pressure tester. Good lu...

Re: LGP tracks and then some

I hope the water(or coolant?) in the engine compartment is condensation secondary to non-use and an extended period since the last service. Keep us posted, Bruce

Re: To buy or not to buy

If the isolator has been recently replaced, probably don't need to do anything else with it. I know some people would upgrade to the D series, if they were this deep into the machine and this was their "forever machine". Remember, the widepad option will have some value. Realize someone out there so...

Re: To buy or not to buy

Lavoy (the proprietor of this site) had put together a kit the would upgrade the C series isolator to the much improved D series. FYI

Nice pics of the wide pad 350C. Really good snow groomer. The pads look to be in excellent shape.

Re: Hi Ho,Hi Ho it's off to work...

My small farm is ~1 mile off a main highway. This limestone road gets lots of traffic and plenty of litterbugs. No pay today, at least monetary pay. Once each spring before the grass grows, we pick up all the litter from the roadways. Lots of folks could careless what the roads and ditch look like. ...

Re: oil leaking from steering clutch housing

Is your crawler a track loader? SN lookup puts it as a 1974. Do you know if the sumps are common? Based on your symptoms, I would suspect your sumps are not common. The early C series did not have common sumps, but could be converted(as outlined in the tech manual). Non-common sumps have the trans s...

Re: oil leaking from steering clutch housing

I would suggest the hydraulic hose that operates the left steering clutch is leaking; therefore, filling the left steering clutch housing with oil.

Re: spring? here?

Hello Amos,
That is a really good deal on the disc. I have several Landpride implements. They are very good pieces in my opinion.

Re: 350B Loader Track

I suspect the prior owner "short tracked" the chain. Toward the end of u/c service life, the front idler runs out of adjustment. Some will cut out a link in the chain to regain some adjustment. It will not walk to one side or the other simple b/c of a short track, that would require other problems. ...

Re: 350c noise

First, I don't own a 350. But I have read plenty about the infamous isolator failure. Use this site to search for " 350 isolator ". I would say the brakes need an adjustment. Take care, Bruce

Re: Inj Pump Irritations and Frustrations

Happy Easter Amos,
It is one of the best feelings when things work as they should or you have rescued a piece other have deemed "expired"! Glad to hear your machine is back in service. Bruce
