    Adding FUEL to the MX6000 makes me cuss

    Some use a battery operated pump. Slow but they work. I use 2.5 gallon cans as they are lighter and easier to handle. BTW: be prepared for a whole ton of GAS in a diesel tractor comments.

    Back in the Day

    Sweet memories. I had a necker's knob on the Jeep right up to the time I was off road and hit a big rock. The knob damn near broke my hand when it came around. The girlfriend (soon to be wife) thought it was funny as hell !

    Back in the Day

    Mine was a 3 speed and required two hands on the wheel and serious effort to slow turn. I have cranked a Ford Model A without breaking my thumb. That car did turn better than my much newer Jeep.

    How government Works

    Always an exception to the rule. My eldest daughter was here for a couple of weeks. A GS 13. She was at my dining room table with my land line, her cell phone, and a laptop for 8 - 10 hours most days. The taxpayers are getting their monies worth out of this kid.

    How government Works

    I have seen some outcomes in the private sector that also make you shake your head.

    Towing a 14' utility trailer for a hayride?

    IMHO: I would pull it with the truck and keep the lights on. Kids will love it anyways ! You gonna pull that gate up and down at every stop or have kids bail over the side? At least on adult in the back to keep the little ones seated. We walked miles on Halloween.

    Sealing concrete leak?

    Any hardware store will have cement patch that will work on the inside of the basement. A bigger issue may be the water on the outside that is getting into the wall. Freeze and thaw action may make it larger as time goes on. Been there.

    b8200 - Newbie's first tractor wont start

    My B6200 is a similar to your B8200. It really sounds like your battery is weak. What you are calling the choke in the video is the compression release. The engine should be turning much faster with that pulled out. I have only needed the compression release in cold weather to get things...

    Gas cans now shower valves

    Interesting. How does it control the temperature? I had the bath redone a few years ago. Single handle control and the hot is very hot. I actually lowered the water heater since we do cold water in the washer and the straight hot water was too high for comfort.

    Awesome dogs / Crazy pets Thread

    The dog or the wife ? Max moved on to be a stud at a friends farm. Sired some decent rabbit hunters. Me, not so much, LOL. My dogs all figured out pretty quick that mom ruled the roost ( most of the time) .

    New Gas can - rehash

    I know , it is buried in the forum somewhere, but to lazy to look! Long haired tree hugger... aka professional environmentalist / retired and a long haired country boy. I really tried to use the new anti-venting nozzles for gas cans. Just a bad idea or poor design. Poor flow control, gas...

    Awesome dogs / Crazy pets Thread

    We had a rescue Basset that tried the war of the wills over kibble. Left his bowl of dry food out and no canned food, no snacks, and no table scraps. It took him two days to admit defeat. My wife accused me of being cruel.

    Two weeks to stop the spread…

    Even I think this is one of the dumbest laws I have seen in a long time.

    What did you do to or on your Kubota today?

    Basic little tractor stuff. Gonna let some of the lawn go back to nature. Not used since the kids are grown and the grandkids do not seem the yard types. New trend is to let lawns go back to nature so it may help resale. The family friendly grass around the house stays the same. May let...
