    My tractor sometimes cranks right up and other times it acts like fuel starved. You know like you ran out of diesel and filled the tank and didn't prime.

    Long story but I have a slightly left bent tube on my John Deere 752 Tedder. It seems to be causing more problems that what I thought it wood. Trying to find out who made them for John Deere. I know my 700 rake was made by Vermeer. Deer no longer has that tedder part. This will be my winter project.

    Backing my JD6430 the clutch response in A-1 to be very quick and hard to back spot on. It seems dangerous especially someone is back there to pin the equipment tongue. With a MF1840 Baler you have to be pretty exact with the hook up. Not much room for error. After the last baling I noticed...

    Having problems with the Hoelscher Accumulator behind the MF1840. Bale catching and one not dumping. Finally realized the hydraulic flow adjustment is creeping up on and increasing the flow. On the last baling we did I noticed it wasn't where I had set it. Yesterday I confirmed it was creeping...

    So I recently bought a used JD 275 disc cutter. My question is putting on new blades and rotating old ones. The new blades I got from JD have a cutter on both sides, so when I rotate the blade do I flip it over or does it move to a turtle going in the oppisite direction. Looks like the cutting...

The main difference is that the 535 has the net wrap. If anyone has any experience with either of these please let me know if theres anything to look...

    I am looking for some help with my JD 5510 open cab tractor. It is a four wheel drive tractor and the other day before starting it up, I noticed a puddle of fluid on the ground on the inside of the left front wheel. It looks as if the fluid was leaking from the inside of the hub area. I added...

    I am looking for a round baler. Have found a couple or JD 430 locally. I am just getting started and this is all I can afford. So what do people think. Good baler or not so good. What should I look for when looking at the 2 used balers I am going to see? Are parts still avaliable? Easy to run...

    I recently bought a JD 6430. I have a friend that has a 6330. My question: is there a secret to changing 540 to 1000 or vice versa. Holding the snap ring and pushing it in does not always work. We keep fiddling with it and finally it goes in and don't know why it works in that spot. One of the...

    Anyone know where to get parts (beyond teeth, etc) for a John Deere no. 8 sickle bar mower? I need the two-pronged part that joins the pitman arm to the "gear box." Failing that, guess I'll have my welder repair mine--cast iron, but he's pretty good...

    Out of curiosity someone asked in another post how much HP you have in front of you square baler. I was wondering how much HP you have in front of your round baler and what round baler are you using. I am thinking of buying a used tractor and baler. I am pretty sure it will have to be at least...

    My JD 4440 3 pt lift assist is leaking. I have removed the bottom pin and removed the top bolt nut but cannot get the bolt out. I cannot figure it unscrews or just is supposed to come out. It has two flat sides on the head of the bolt (or pin). Suggestions appreciated.

    To start with, I'm new to the forum and secondly I'm not a farmer. That alone may exempt me from the forum! :mellow: I do own a ranch in south Texas which requires the use of a tractor for a lot of shredding, minor dirt work, and moving large feeders and other heavy objects from time to time...
