    XG 850 CVT Belt replacement

    Howdy. I have had my Sidekick for 3 years now and have never checked the CVT belt. I looked in the manual and it says check it every 100 hours. Well I am over that by two. I was looking at Youtube and couldn't find a video on how to check it or change it. Anybody have a video of this, or a...

    Toothbar questions

    I use my Dewalt impact wrench on the bolt side, and hold the head side with a regular wrench. Pull the trigger and it gets tight. I take mine on and off depending on what material I am moving. Also if I need a smoother back blade job. I have never had the nuts back off or get lose.

    OT Peat Moss to level a yard

    I am sure this question is in the wrong forum, but I am not sure which forum to use for it. My yard is pretty bumpy small holes all over it in some places. I have read here a few times to use Peat to fill the holes in. If I get a few bags of peat moss to use, do I just spread it over the...

    BX23 dumb question on Backhoe 3 point

    I will be looking into a standalone unit, the person that did my stumps said he might be willing to sell the grinder and trailer. I might give him a call and ask if I could go out a few time with him to learn how to use it correctly and maybe buy it. After watching a few too many YouTube...

    BX23 dumb question on Backhoe 3 point

    The Titan I am looking at uses the PTO to drive the grinder, and the hydraulics to move it back and forth. It states it will work on anything form 20hp to 60hp cat 1 3 point. I am just not sure if the backhoes hydraulics are what is used to power the cylinders to swing it. 3 Point woodchipper

    BX23 dumb question on Backhoe 3 point

    Ok I really think I should know the answer, but I don't know for sure. I have a BX23S with the backhoe. I am thinking I want to get a stump grinder to make a little side money and clean up a few stumps in my yard. I have been digging them out, and I am wondering if a stump grinder would...

    No pallet forks no problem

    I am almost done with all my projects around my property that is why the chipper went away. I used it for 3 years and don't see a need for it anymore. Depending on how much longer my project goes on, I may just sell the tractor also. If I keep it for some reason I might get a set of forks...

    No pallet forks no problem

    I sold my wood chipper, and had to figure out how to move it without taken off the back hoe, and no pallet forks. I think worked out nicely.

    BX23S. No start fixed not a safety switch

    That was the first thing I checked. I then went after the treadle pedal switch to see if it was causing the issue. I even checked the seat switch ( which I knew couldn't cause the problem because I can start it stand on the side of it). When none of them seemed bad, I took the PTO safety...

    BX23S. No start fixed not a safety switch

    This is a follow up from my problem yesterday. I went to the dealer this morning when they opened. Talked to parts to order the PTO safety switch. Walked into service to see about getting it picked up. They told me to verify the safety switches and wiring first before they come and got it...

    BX23 no start what is this switch that is broke?

    It is the PTO switch the spring pushes it back down when the PTO is in use. I jumped it out and it is still not trying to start. It started to rain so I tossed in the towel. I will give my dealer a call in the AM to see if they have one in stock and can send some one out to figure out what...

    Sidekick XG850 Recall

    When I dropped mine off I talked to the salesman I always use. He stated that they can't sell them until the recalls are done. This is a smaller town dealer that has been around awhile.
