wasn't looking forward to replacing shear pins and this "clutch" system is great - hit something, the clutch disengages for a few seconds then re-engages and you continue on your way

same, for me, with the hydrostatic transmission.....just as I wouldn't own (and haven't in many many years) a car with a standard transmission, the HST makes Tractor work SO MUCH easier - a heal/toe "rocker" throttle for the right foot and off ya go, forward or back

I've got plans for putting in at least 2 more runs of fencing - one of 100 running feet and the other of 210 feet.  Most of our present wood fence uses Posts every 5' but when building new I'm putting 'em in every 6' and using 12 foot 2x6 horizontals (vs 10 footers)

I put 4 horizontal boards and a 5th Top Board - set with 3" nails (1 each connection point using a nail gun) then go back with 4 inch coated wood screws to secure all

a lot of our property has 4 T posts in between each wooden post and then Barbed Wire (ex cattle ranch) which is a no no for our Horses so when I rebuild a section it's with treated wood

I opted for a "clutch" vs the shear bolt and glad I did (is that a New Holland tractor ?  like the looks of it)

also was thinking about a Box Blade but, so far, I've been able to do pretty much the same work with the leading edge of the bucket

1st implement was a Tiller, which I don't have much use for at this property - I work the heck out of the Post Hole Digger and the Brush Hog however

guess the "secret" to hooking up/unhooking the PTO is having strong, young hands  :frown:

Wife on tractor when we 1st got it :


It is an LS brand. I looked at JD Kubota Kioti etc. all same same pretty much and in truth only a couple mfgs make all the running gear for ALL these little tractors anyway. Essentially pretty much all the same just lay out and paint colors change.

Its 35hp and 28 hp pto.
4wd shuttle shift. No way I wanted a hydrostatic trans.

I am going to be inquiring about that myself. I am “new” to adjusting it etc and I had the nose down to much broke it 3x.
This weekend I will adj it properly and should stop it but I am interested in the clutch set up. I like easy.

I am starting with nothing on my land and its 75mi from my house so my weekends are spent there prepping for the day I can relocate (few yrs away when retirement arrives). I am 58 so still OK but age is slowly catching up. Things like cant see detail etc w/o readers back get sore etc.

I will use all the attachments Im sure I need fence on 2sides 800 and 400 ft runs. Alsoo beed repair on the fence on the other 2 sides.

Lots to do but hopefully get r done eventually.

I love our Kubota's.

But ts funny how they could design a loader, or FRONT attachments that can be changed in minutes and so easy a BLIND caveman can do it.

Then the rear attachments are such a PITA it almost takes 2 men and a boy to change them.
Once on there,, they aint going anywhere and they dont rattle or swing around. But damn are they hard to change by yourself. :bangheadonwall: .

My 60 inch underneath ( belly) mowing deck on my 2920 is easy as can be to change.

So its not just you Tango.  :th_thicon_idea: Rear attachments are a huge pita.  :bangheadonwall:

Ammunition / Ammo for a dutch hembrug carbine
« Last post by JAR on Yesterday at 07:05:05 PM »
I bought a couple hembrug carbines and was told they fire 6.5x53.5 R which is very hard to find. But they are M.95 Mannlichers and I was told by someone else that 6.5x54 MS would work in them. Can someone give me a definitive answer? I want to shoot them but they are old and I do not want to run the incorrect ammo through them.

Rifles & Shotguns / Looking for a Stainless Steel Mossberg

Does anyone have any knowledge of where I can find an all stainless steel Mossberg K series pump action? I contacted Mossberg and was told "there were a small number of early K serial number model 500s that were stainless steel."
