  1. My trial of the Ruth Stout method

    I forgot to update this. I'll try to take a picture tomorrow, but the sweet potatoes have grown so much they are starting to cover the tomatoes. I have gotten more produce than I can possibly eat, freeze and give away, and this is only the first year. It gets better every year, according to the fans of this system. Tomorrow I will see if any of the melons are ripe yet.
  2. FEL ladder frame question

    Actually, reading further, I think they are only 1/8", but I haven't had any issues at all.
  3. FEL ladder frame question

    Nope, 1/4". My build isn't the prettiest, since it was also my first time using a MIG welder, but it seems to be nice and strong. http://www.wheelhorseforum.com/topic/61940-522xi-front-end-loader-build/?tab=comments#comment-577778
  4. FEL ladder frame question

    Mine is very similar to Shynon's for my 520xi. I am connected to the mid tach-o-matic, and U-Bolted to the rear axle. I have moved a minimum of 50 yeards this summer alone, and it has held up great. Unfortunately, I don't remember how thick the subframe is. If I remember tomorrow, I'll see if I can measure it, but I believe it is 3/16" 2x2 tubing
  5. Does the foam stay soft at all, or is it like a solid tire afterward? I guess I should have finished the page first.
  6. Bent tie rod, how to remove?

    Looks like Toro recognized the tie rods weren't thick enough
  7. Hydrostatic surging while turning

    I adjusted neutral, helped a bit. I'll do the kit once it arrives.

    Cheapest I found https://sleequipment.com/toro-genuine-part-smart-turn-disable-kit-private-label-riders-104-5051.html#product_tabs_advancedreviews_product_additional_data
  9. Hydrostatic surging while turning

    You definitely need to remove the right rear tire and adjust the neutral position, as Jeff said. I need to as well, hoping to do it tomorrow. I also ordered a smart turn disable kit

    Careful, I found this: http://www.mytractorforum.com/13-toro-wheelhorse-forum/309857-5xi-smart-turn-bypass-kit-why.html
  11. Rest in Peace JimD

    Sorry to hear this. RIP
  12. Bent tie rod, how to remove?

    I wonder if smart steer has anything to do with it. It is weird how easy it bent. It was a lot of work to straighten, both times.
  13. Bent tie rod, how to remove?

    Did that and still couldn't get it off. I took the tie rod off at the steering shaft end and was just barely able to get the front end off by turning the wheel all the way left. It was bent just a little. Straightened it all out, put it back on, carried 4 bucket loads of mulch and on the 5th bucket, it bent again, worse than before. I have a new one coming, so hopefully it is a bit stronger. This time it bent when the left front wheel hit the pile of mulch. It should have driven right over, hopefully it is just because the rod was weakened. It is really hard to drive like this.
  14. Bent tie rod, how to remove?

    Actually, looking at the drawing, if I get the back end off, and I think I can, then I should be able to turn the wheel to clear the spindle. May not be as hard as it looks.
  15. Bent tie rod, how to remove?

    I tried that, but couldn't get #8 steering arm loose, was afraid I was going to break something. The end of the ball joint is sitting right over the spindle, so I either have to remove the steering arm, or turn the wheel enough to get the bolt past the spindle, and couldn't do either. I'll try again tomorrow, it broke right at the end of the day, and I didn't have much time to mess with it. If I can get that end loose, then I can get the other end off and pull it out and straighten it. And possibly strengthen it, it bent when I was backing up and the wheel went into a hole
