    L2501 ... A REAL Tractor

    I was at Messick's yesterday (Elizabethtown)(sunday) just to look around without salesman. Wow, I didn't realize how much bigger and thicker everything (axles, etc.) is on L2501's compared to the 26hp B50 and B01 tractors. I know they are around 1000lbs+- more than B's. There was an L2501 next...

    Lets see some pics of your BX,'s, B's and L's on your trailers to see how your tractor fits on your trailer. Tell what size trailer you have and if you like the set up or would like to change trailer type or size or both and why. Do you have room for extra implements ? Is your trailer Low...

    Why run high rpm's with a diesel ?

    At first I thought it was odd that people here were being told to run their tractors most of the time at full rpm's when doing work. To me, a diesel is a low rpm torquer. Then it occurred to me that most of the tractors in discussion here are small NON-TURBO engines. That's it, I'm used to all...

    Do tractor newbies know ?

    It seems not too uncommon, when watching a tractor video, that the operators dont have the outer driveshaft plastic cover chained off. Do new tractor owners realize that it is, potentially, a life saving safety device ? Until i found this forum i used to wonder why the PTO shafts had a plastic...

    Small tractors - Big Load ?

    Just a reminder for new tractor owners, I recently saw a pic of somebody moving a BIG Travel Trailer with a BX tractor. Just cuz you can move it on level ground doesn't mean you will be able to stop it on a hill. The 3 point hitch has a lot of tonque weight capability but your tractor only has...

    Piranha or Heavy Hitch Tooth Bar ?

    Seems like a lot of guys here have the Piranha Tooth bar but does anybody have Heavy Hitch's tooth bar ? It's very different looking than the piranha tooth bar. Might be better for certain types of work? Way more expensive, tho. To me it looks like the Heavy Hitch bar would be not as versatile...

    What about non-tractors ?

    If a tractor's front axle didn't pivot, it probably could be rated to lift more with the loader (some of the lift limit is also the tractors weight). But, since it can pivot at the front axle where the weight is lifted high, it can become tipsy and dangerous. Why not consider another type of...

    Root "shears" for a backhoe arm ?

    Would it be possible to make some kind of cutters that can cut roots of trees (up to a few inches thick)(im thinking of like a BX or B tractor) by taking off the backhoe bucket and installing a cutter on the end of the backhoe arm that uses the end cylinder for moving a cutting blade ? maybe...
