    Part for Bx1500

    There is a switch that is located behind the rear wheel, Where the shift linkage is, I will call it the neutral safety switch for a lack of better term that essentially lets the tractor know it’s ok to start. I think that is going on my little bx and want to replace it but do not which switch I...

    DPF operating hints: calling all owners of new tractors

    I just had my first regen at 44 hours as well. Tilling at the time and there was no change, so much dust I couldn't have told you if there was a difference in smell or not.

    Need help deciding.

    As you will read on this site err on the side of bigger. I had a passing thought of getting a B series but realized I needed bigger. If not for now then definitely for later. A tractor is a long term investment so if you do it right the first time you will not have to worry about it down the...

    Brush hog

    To second the above comment, the thing I found the cheapest used were bush hogs. I bought a tiller and finish mower new because I found what they were going for used were close enough I would err on the side of new, but in the bush hog case, I'm going used because at least around here they go a...

    New Land Pride Tiller Problem

    Agree with wolfman, a tiller is going to get beat up. My sill plate was a little protruded on the tiller I just got, started leaking a gear oil. They sent me a new sill plate but I just banged this one into place and through some gasket maker around it. I've used mine for about 4-5 hours and...

    Is Kubota credit sketchy?

    I was actually not told by my Sales guy that they would not send out any correspondence. I waited to receive some kind of correspondence beyond contract but never received. I went on and paid the bill online but it is a bit weird they don't send an "initial bill" Almost every company does...

    Farm implements

    Here in Jersey to be farmland assessed you have to show a profit of $1k or more per 5 usable acres and then its only I think something like $10 per acre beyond that. At my previous farm I had a little over 5 acres but most was woods/wetlands. I planted about an acre. Last year on my honest...

    Cutting a PTO Shaft

    I have now cut shafts for two tillers. Its seems like a lot to take off but I inevitably cut to little to be on the cautious side then have to cut more. As someone said above make sure you separate and cut both sides.

    Tiller Size for L3901?

    What do people run on their L3901? What do you guys suggest max size? I was going to go with 70-72" but in a different thread someone made me question maybe that is to large?

    Mount walk behind tiller on 3 point hitch?

    Not sure what the capacity of your tractor is but I got a 37" tiller for my BX1500 about 2 years ago for $850 shipped to my door. Its been good to me for 3 years and I beat it up. I actually only had 4.86 acres mainly wooded and wetlands. I planted probably .75 acres. This little guy did the...

    Should I add these extras?

    The finish mowing is more of a "field" than an actual lawn, I am going to keep my eye out for a used brush mower as well. I'm not to worried about the weight if it makes sense to get the extra weight which I was leaning towards, for the loader work. Any idea how much the extra valves cost...

    Should I add these extras?

    Decided to purchase a new L3901 after debating new and used and the 0% financing. I will be using it as a general do it all but the main jobs will be mowing with a 72” finish mower on some areas around a large pond and roadside. Moving firewood probably going to start putting in bins on a...

    Messicks Video (Compact tractors very strong demand, few used on the market

    You were pretty much dead on with this, decided to get a quote from Messicks because I'm at work and email access is easy, they pretty much came in at 14% under the build cost.

    Messicks Video (Compact tractors very strong demand, few used on the market

    I'm actually having that internal debate now. I see that 0% and think, if I buy the tractor new I will end up owning it my entire life. I can take the money I would have paid cash for a used and invest it, or save some cash overall and buy used. I just don't know how much these dealers take...

    Starting my Search....

    A lot of that stuff is up in the air, I think I've come to the realization I will need to get something maybe a bit over sized for my needs now and hopefully it fits for a while till the true plan unfolds. I'm starting with only organic crops.
