Welcome to my thread on New Holland equipment repair and other information you may find of some use.

If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions, please start a new thread on the machinery forum or PM me. This will make it easier for visitors to find the information they are looking for. Please, do not post questions here or in the following posts.

I have worked on New Holland equipment for 50 years. With retirement beckoning in the near future my goal by starting this thread was to share some of the knowledge I gained over the years. I have seen many an experienced technician retire and their knowledge lost.

As you scroll down this first post you will find a table of contents with links to each post on this thread.

The following posts reflect how I work and the process I am comfortable with. My way of doing things is not the only way. Regardless of how you choose to work on your equipment, always practice safety first. Wear safety glasses, ear protection and any other safety equipment that is required to do a job safely. Read your operators manuals and follow the recommended procedures for safely working around the piece of equipment. In many of my posts on the round balers you will see the tailgate open. Always lock your tailgate before entering an open bale chamber.

I have posts on tools I have made to make a job easier. You are free to copy those tools, but only for your personal use.
