Re: Back from auction

Blade: looks to be early model King Kutter brand: 1980's maybe?. Found a very similar design on a farm equipment site. $1295.00 + freight new. Looks like I got a deal and now wife wants it painted.....
This whole interweb thing is handy every now and again :D

Re: Major incident at work today!

Woke up this morning and BP is still in stratosphere. Knees throbbing(worked garden yesterday to relieve stress. Garden looking pretty good btw) and today is my b-day. All things pass and maybe I'll get some good deals at the auction tomorrow. Back to the garden(at the factory site): seeing some blo...

Sounds like adjustment or rust. Pull back on right steer lever then release a few dozen times and if it goes away it was rust. If it doesn't then re-do adjustment procedure.

Forgot to add this part: Pull back and release a few dozen time while moving forward and reverse.

Re: Backhoe weight

Hi Terry, Maybe not: when I load heavy I position the load to give max allowable hitch weight: be it bumper or gooseneck ball. If gooseneck I can legally pick up another 4000 pounds. I'm running a Ram 3500 with drivetrain and suspension set up for max trailer weight of 29,000 pounds. My heaviest bui...

Major incident at work today!

I have a factory in my hometown and own half a city block adjoining it in the downtown area. As a courtesy I allow paving contractors to use a portion of the area to stock pile materials and stage equipment.All I ask is that they respect my property and if conducive to all parties offer some type of...

Hi,

Given the subject, my brain read 'live cast auction' as 'live cast iron auction'. :P

And, I had a cup of coffee this morning!

Re: reverser oil flow question

I can offer no guidance but in reading your very detailed posts it seems as though you are correct in assuming some type of restriction in the control oil flow.How to clean the system is the question. On other hydraulic system I have back flowed to a drain point(line removed etc). From the point of ...

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 I agree with B Town. TLB's (Late 1970's forward) are a lot heavier than they look or one would think. I've got a Case 480E 2wd loader landscaper (loader and 6 way 6' box blade with ripper...

Re: Jd 350 recommended oils

Low pressure vs high pressure grease guns: low pressure gun work well on new fittings but older equipment rarely has new fittings. Manual high pressure guns(lever type) are only as good as the operator. Yes, they can provide crazy high pressure,if you stand on the operating lever. Use common sense a...

Re: Jd 350 recommended oils

Hi, There may not be roller zerks. Sometime in the 80s, they went to sealed rollers which don't get greased. But, if the rollers get greased, there are ten, five per side. And the idler. And the top roller, which a bolt needs to come out to get the end of the gun onto. That vents the top roller. Al...

Re: Jd 350 recommended oils

On engine crankcase I use either straight 30wt in cold weather or 40wt in hot weather. I'm old and 15w-40 just looks "thin" to me.Hydraulics I use either JD Hyguard ($$$$) or regular 303 Hydraulic oil($$) had good results with both. Tranny is same(303 or Hyguard) as is reverser.Finals is where it ge...
