    What if there were no swear words

    I didn't hear an eff bomb until the 7th grade, nowadays the kids in my wife's Young 5's class use the word routinely. Just more evidence of societies downward spiral into depravity. No sense of decency or manners anymore.

    Grease stuff

    3% moly on everything. The only issue is if the moly content is 5% or higher, don't use it on rolling element bearings. Life couldn't be simpler.

    Can't remove propshaft from gearhead on rotary cutter.....ideas?

    There has to be something to prevent the yoke from sliding off the gearbox input shaft when the bolt shears. You said there was no snap ring, how about a spiral ring or wire ring or a roll pin drilled off center that crosses a groove in the input shaft. Put a smaller diameter bolt in the hole...

    How does the hydraulic shuttle and clutch work in an M6060 or similar.

    The best explanation I could provide is the foot clutch works just like any other foot clutch. It disconnects the transmission from the engine (excluding PTO). The hydraulic shuttle clutch pack is downstream from the foot clutch and includes a set of reversing gears.

    B2650 good for a small farm and 1/4 mile driveway in NH?

    I have an M5660 on 2 acres. I think you need a bigger tractor for a 60 acre estate. (Full disclosure: I have an additional 40 acres elsewhere).

    When the main frame of the attachment is level, the cutting edge has a slight positive rake angle relative to the forward travel of the tractor. If you shorten the top link, to the point where the cutting edge is perpendicular to the ground, you have a zero rake angle. If you continue to...
