Re: Why not one more?

I thought I read somewhere that all 149s came with hydralics and 169s were suppose to but they didn't have the stock so since the 149s were advertised as such they kept all the 149s loaded and sent most 169s out without hydralics? Fact Check me but I believe that was in a magazine .

I got a rough 147 for the same price 4 years ago and it is a bear. My wife says its hers. Funny how she adopts all the tractors with power.

Re: GTX2154LE

We got our 2542 in 06 for about $3400. with deck and bagger. It has been great but reverse is way to slow and forward is a little lacking at 5.8. In hindsight I would have gotten a 2544 due to the larger front wheels. I believe the 6" front wheels are dictated by the deck configuration only. It was ...

Re: How do you turn the fuel up on a 1782

Thanks farmall, after being tortured by the 3 throttle and govener springs I stopped caring about torque specs. I have complete books on a 1402 and the 2203 but neither has torque specs. Go figure

Farmallgray, you wouldn't by chance have the torque spec for that timing cover in your head??? I am about to torque mine down and my book doesn't have the spec for the bolts. Kubota 2203E.

Old Cubs Big Time

I started a Job on a local private golf course this week (Monday) that I will be on for most or all of March. We are refreshing 56 sand traps and rebuilding three bunkers. Also we built three short rock retaining walls around some tees and greens already and have a handful of cart paths to repair. I...

Re: Tire and Rims

Thank you Ray, I have been wondering about the rounding bulge problem that may occur. Maybe I should get the 8.5s and look for ANOTHER set of the wider rim for the 1o.5s??? Only 3 out of 9 tractors mow so multiple set ups are something I may be interested in. Don't worry, I have your web site handy!...

This question I am sure has been asked a million times but I am just asking for you boys out in the farm country for your opinion anyhow.

Re: Plowing and Weather

Sounds like what I have here Frank. If I can't get all the way through the ice after tommorows warm up I am putting the tooth bucket on the skid steer and letting it rip. I might kick myself in the spring but if I can kick myself it means I didn't break my neck.
