    Stinky Water Fixed

    I'm on a well, pump at about 440 feet. Water picked up a rotten egg smell and taste. Pour a glass, let sit overnight, it's fine. My pressure tanks have been losing pressure. I replaced them. Water went back to tasting like water - basically no taste. Both tanks on removal had water. One...

    PTO Problem

    Okay, I own this one. I connected my PTO shaft for my brush hog type mower. I thought it latched but it didn't. After bringing the mower up to speed it slipped off the PTO drive. The mower continued to spin the shaft. It flew around wildly until the blade slowed and stopped. Of course the...

    L Series Hydraulic Filter Change

    I've read one should use a shop vac to slow or stop hydraulic fluid leakage when replacing filters. I've not seen any information how to accomplish this. I discovered the hydraulic cap on my tractor was a common on inch male NPT fitting. I grabbed a one inch socket to male NPT adapter, cut a...

    Coloring Hydraulic Fluid

    For Cleaner Air on L Series

    I purchased a new L2501 HST in July. On this forum I learned of a second air filter which may be installed INSIDE of the existing air filter to remove any particles the first filter missed. This filter may not be in the L2501 parts list. The local mechanic told me in my case it is unnecessary...

    Loose L Series Seat

    I don't know if it's common or I'm just "lucky". My seat was shaky when I flipped it up and I noticed the pivot pin had worked its way partially out. I removed it to check and the end was drilled for a cotter pin. I put on a thin layer of grease to ease installation and put it back into its...
