  1. Slip Sliding Away

    Your probably going to have to make your front chains narrower so they won't hit. I have front chains on the snowblower tractor and really like them.

    Those ships do look impressive and are. From my experience though you don't have to be out on one very long and shore duty starts looking really nice.

    Personally the Grey Wheel Horse looks a lot better than the old grey Ferguson's did.

    A skid steer without a doubt has it's place and with a skilled operator can really turn out the work. My yard is not the place for one though. One turn and I would have a lawn to repair. They can do a lot of damage to the ground they are operating on and I'd never hear the end of it if the neighbors saw me pulling a plow with a skid steer.
  5. Vintage Trucks

    I used to work on those when they were new in the late 60's. Even then they were known as a tank and just about indestructible. When I worked for Toyota at that time it was thought the engine was a take off of the Chevy 235 straight 6. We had a demonstration ramp set up in the front lot. If anyone could climb that ramp with any stock vehicle other than a Land Cruiser they would get a $100.00. That was a lot of money in those days and no one every collected it as far as I can remember.

    I'm not fond of the newer tractors because of the the computerized controls on them. I think my all time favorite tractor is the Fordson Dexta diesel. Parts are readily available and it's easy to work on if necessary. Live PTO, 3 point hitch, high and low range, very stable, and extremely easy on fuel. The only down side is I didn't know about them 30 years ago. This is mine.

    My 20 year old1997 with a 5 spd. I still enjoy driving a stick . 84,000 miles and I'm the third owner. The 2010 sets in the garage with 36,000 and doesn't get driven because it's an automatic.
  8. Just went through the same thing with our dog. She was my good buddy for many years. Hope you can get over it soon. Gone but never forgotten.
  9. I was having that problem when trying to turn when the blower was down. Bought a set of 2 link chains to put on the front wheels and that pretty much took car of the problem. Was it icy under the snow you were plowing?

    I have a hard time keeping mine on the ground.
  11. Troy Bilt GTX 20

    Any competent Hydraulic shop should be able to reseal that cylinder for you.
  12. Troy Bilt GTX 20

    Both mine came with Kohler 20hp magnums.
  13. I thought they quit making those years ago. Think it had to do with global warming or something.
  14. Just think of all the people who are being maimed or worse with vehicles everyday. How would you feel if you had to have a different drivers license for each state you drove in.
