  1. Best spot to get Magnum cab relay

    The new "old" style ones Case IH sell are from China, Hy-Capacity offers a Chinese one or a Mexican one that' better. The new style from Case IH have been very reliable in the MX Magnums.
  2. 1586 and vacuum planter

    What size planter? We ran a six row 7200 on our closed center 1086 no problem but it had marginal hydraulic capacity to raise our 12 row with a PTO pump.
  3. Borrowed this for a few days.

    I've got a 72" Wildkat rock bucket with grapple that's 4 years old now, the welds aren' anything special but we've used it hard and had zero issues with it. I think I paid $1,850 and $200 for shipping. I thought the design of this bucket was the best all around design and Wildkat was a lot cheaper than other brands.

  5. 3pt trailer hitch adapter

    Do you need my address to mail a check too? If your serious $600 plus shipping will get you one, you can buy cheaper ones but you'l have a hard time finding one built better.
  6. 3pt trailer hitch adapter

    I've built 3 bale movers like this with receiver hitch tubes in them.
  7. Tractor hours

    We have a 1066 with 4,000 hours, bought it off a neighbor' estate about 15 years ago with 1,900 hours. He bought it new and a couple years later he let go of his rented ground so it was only used on his 120 acre farm which was 40 acres pasture, 40 acres hay and 40 acres crop ground. For 30 years all he did with the 1066 was some tillage and moving round bales of hay, he had a 560 and an M for the light work.
  8. What is an R-1W tire?

    Remember that the deeper lugs on the R1W will wear a lot longer.
  9. Tile plow accident

    In a Facebook group I'm in there is a guy from that area who works for the phone company and he has patched at least two phone lines those guys have plowed tile through because they didn' have them located.
  10. Combine differences

    Didn't the 88s get a closed center hydraulic system or did that not come out till the 2100s?
  11. 10 ton bottle jack

    They are expensive but we have an Emmerson air/hydraulic jack and its awesome.
  12. MACDAN COMBINE HEADERS.

    One of our Case IH dealers pushed guys away from the 2162 heads saying a 3020 auger head would perform just well with an air reel for less money (not true) but now they are pushing the 3162 drapers as the greatest thing ever. We bought one of the very last 2162s in '13 and its been one of the best pieces of equipment we own.
  13. 2188 unloading swing switch accident

    I think it' more of a safety function for when they are being shipped.
  14. Silage packing tractor?

    If your packing silage from a big chopper you need a big, heavy tractor that can keep up by spreading thin layers of silage. A 15,000lb tractor will do fine packing silage from a 2 row pull type chopper, a 700hp self propelled chopper requires a lot bigger tractor to get a good pack.
  15. towing an mx magnum 255

    You have to manually release the park gear on those, the instructions should be in the manual.
  16. Silage packing tractor?

    Some of the older Stiegers used an Allison automatic that would probably make a good economical packing tractor.
  17. hours on a magnum?

    Know of a guy who's ran a few magnums to high hours, his record before needing a transmission rebuild is 54,000 hours and he' ran a couple past 30,000 before the engine needs major work. His feed mixer tractor gets a 250 hour engine oil change every 21 days.
  18. Rear Tractor Tire Suggestions

    If you want lots of traction you could put 650/65R38s on your current 18" wide rims, those are a 24" wide tire. A Michelin that size is around $2,500 but a BIT or Mitas would be quite a bit cheaper.
  19. Hydrostatic tractors on a grain cart.

    Where a hydro would shine on a grain cart is unloading and being able to smoothly creep ahead when filling wagons or trucks.
  20. Led's on steiger 4wd

    Might as well go ahead and change all of them, if you do half you will be so disappointed with your old lights that you will change them soon anyway.
  21. Chisel Plow Question

    The shank on those older chisels just aren't strong enough to handle that much pull, if you add weight to the frame to hold it down your going to end up breaking shank. We had a DMI and a Soil Saver that did the same thing, last spring we bought a Sunflower 4410 and I think it's heavy enough to not bounce but the 5488 with have it's hands full pulling it.
  22. 12V cab heater

    I put one of these in our 70xt, got the shut off valves that go in the block from case. I have it mounted in front of the back window and it keeps it plenty warm. https://m.ebay.com/itm/Universal-Skid-Steer-Heater-Floor-Mount-Bobcat-Case-New-Holland-Mustang-Cab-Kit/231455349200?hash=item35e3d059d0%3Ag%3A9u8AAOSwsFpWSwuw&_trkparms=pageci%3A58e16012-bb12-11e7-ba9b-74dbd180cd98%7Cparentrq%3A5dce2a7615f0a990b7d37b0efffcd8cf%7Ciid%3A6
  23. Mrx 690

    We have a 5 shank 690, have been running it 10" deep behind a MX240 or Cat 55 at 4.5-6.5 mph, in our soils we generally need to be 12-13" deep to get the compaction layer but we didn't have enough power to pull it that deep. Last summer the 55 got traded for a Steiger 385 so I'm hoping this year we can pull it 13" deep at 7 mph.
  24. 730c

    Depends on how deep your compaction is but generally 10-14" deep and 5-7 mph.
  25. 730c

    In our soils a 275 isn't going to pull a 730 more than 8" deep, that size tractor was a good match for a 530c. There were a bunch of B series rippers around here, the weakest spot on them was the disk leveler pivots getting loose but I think that was improved on the C series machines.
