    What did you do to or on your Kubota today?

    I went with the Lifronkit store mirror distributed on AM, because they showed a little side tilt also. There are so many, it's a crap shoot. With the L you probably have a little more area to attach to loader then on my BX.

    What did you do to or on your Kubota today?

    Installed steer wheel spinner and side mirrors. The spinner seems to get in in the way of my hands. I start out using it for a steering maneuver and my other hand wants to help. I'll give it a chance,

    Box Blade

    I'm planning on over seeding and introduce another seed, soon, I hope. I thought about using my rack and decided to go with my Chain Harrow, which will help break up any driven over packed bare mole hills and poop.

    Setting up New PTO Slip Clutch, and why

    Talking about topic, IMO since refreshing my Howard tiller and completing my soil test plot. I fill it's time to go back and loosen clutch springs and set up for my BX. The process seams straight forward, by loosening spring bolts all the way and slip disc however it's accomplished, I've seen...

    What did you do to or on your Kubota today?

    I completed my small Howard HR12 Tiller test plot. This is the day after. A little mucky as I started to get into field during turn around. This Howard HR12 is a Reverse rotation gear drive rotavator, with two passes it fluffed up fairly well and deep. With documented debit being moved to...

    What did you do to or on your Kubota today?

    Finished up refreshing my Howard HR12-50 gear drive rotavator. Two new gear and one rotor roller bear with oil seal. Replaced with all new tines. Finished up cutting a new series 4, slip clutch PTO shaft. I'll put it to the soil tomorrow for a test path. I'll see, it's still raining or...

    What did you do to or on your Kubota today?

    Nice looking project, and the protection against hydraulic effect of your small waterfall step. Is that a flash flood, with high run off on a stream running house to assist it water control. Just guessing, what is your water works project.

    What did you do to or on your Kubota today?

    If flyidaho has got back to you yet, heres one I googled. It looks like a nifty DIY, if your handy, maybe a side shift on your forks, or at lease the frame. It is a nice design.

    Still a Howard, But Moved on

    After finishing with my HR10 60-inch project (625 lbs.) I decided to go on a weight diet over two hundred pounds lighter to a HR12-50 (418 lbs.) and a lot more stable for my BX. It's a Gear drive, reverse rotation rotor which will help with its lighter weight. The one option this unite has...

    Sprocket Nut

    Have roller chain on shelf, lots of oils and yes grease can be used when installing new gears or chain that are good for clinging to until the oil can be slung thoroughly. IMO, I only have Red line synthetic grease, which will be fine.

    Sprocket Nut

    Thanks, in advance for pic's. I have an HR10. Like mentioned in my original post, too good to pass up. My plan is to put in a small feed strip on the edge of my field a little clover and some native and other grasses, oh and to see how my BX likes it's new toy (to it)

    Sprocket Nut

    I was thinking that, but I still need to pull sprockets. When I compare link count and length with new I'll have a better idea.

    Sprocket Nut

    When I opened it up was oil and water. I cleaned it out with brake cleaner and when I sealed it, I filled with a quart of hydraulic oil to make sure rotor seal didn't have oil pouring out. I'm aware that operating creates more pressure.

    Sprocket Nut

    I was thinking about the crowns on the sprocket, and they didn't look to bad but, I hadn't worked on roller chains and sprockets for a while. I have a replacement chain on the shelf. I was figuring if I needed to pull sprockets to shorten or replace chain I'd take care of them at the same time...

    Sprocket Nut

    Yes, sorry for being long winded. I was planning on putting a 1/2 longer tensioner bolt so I can use jam nut. If someone can suggest how one may locate sprocket with the information I posted?

    Sprocket Nut

    Hi, started a new post on my Howard HR10, got a good deal and I'm still having fun. As you can see chain has a little slack in it and out of adjustment bolt length with jam nut. I was thinking, could that be the sprockets getting worn! If I length the adjustment bolt (.50 jam nut thickness)...
