  2. Never had to use warranty but I do disconnect in the winter and use battery tender on the old stuff. Also make sure charging system works like it should. Have five year old battery on my f-250 I use everyday year round. Just check connections every once in a while for clean. I am a little anal about batteries but I guess if you check every once in a while and keep up with them any battery would give you decent service. Dennis

  4. we considered deka as there is one close $ was more than interstate and warranty was 2yr 25%/$4mo dont let the door hit you so at 1yr $100 purchase = $25 + $48 rebate on $135 retail new one ....bigger game with anything that does offer a warranty now. x years from ORIGINAL purchase so if you buy 3 within the warranty period cost is more than 4 outright

  5. My BN has a 6V that came from Federated Auto parts, was in it when I got it. Its 8 years old and works fine. Sometimes I really don't think it matters what kind you buy, 3 year old Deka's in my F350 truck and one died last Fall. Walmart "Never start" in my Kubota lawn mower is at least 10 years old and it sits all winter .

  8. I agree with the charging system problems, a good battery is only as good as the charging system. We have a deka 6 volt in our H that went in before it was restored in 07. Charged every spring and works great. Had great luck with Deka. Local guy sells them and installs and checks charging system.

  9. 6V batteries get a bad rap because they're more often than not put on an old 6V generator/regulator system that's not working quite right, if at all. What's more important than the battery brand is that the charging system is working properly, and not overcharging or undercharging the battery. Also the tractor needs to be run regularly, and there can't be any parasitic draw on the battery. I do like the $48.88 Walmart specials, but they don't have any 6V, at least not in any of the Walmarts I've been in.

  10. A Sentry from the dealer is a bit more than $1000. Just looked it up and got a price of $2745 at partstore.caseih.com. I'm surprised as I thought they were NLA. Messick's lists a reman module for $1606.90. Still seems like a small price to pay. I don't think you can fix a shelled out transmission for that even if you do the work yourself, plus lost productivity from the tractor being down...

  11. Canola is in full bloom here now. In the next few days it’s goong to start dropping pedals I think and be a little less yellow every day after that. Close to a week behind though I think. Usually by july 20-25th it’s getting a more off colour yellow then the real bright yellow it is now. Looks decent right now but even a poor canola crop looks good when it’s in full bloom. Seems to look thicker then. Was flying the drone at home tonight again and here came a air plane so I had to cut my trip short and boot it back home lol. Had a spray plane flying just north of us before that so I waited for him to clear the sky too before I took off.

  18. mine is in the shop right now getting all new AC everything...............so i will look at the sentry when it gets back, the engine was replaced in 2012 and the trannie work was done in 2008 or 2010 i cant remember which.........i got a lot of tickets on it when i bought it last year but not everything that was done, - it got new cab kit, paint, engine, to the tune of around 22K in 2012 and 10k back in 08/10 on the trannie stuff on that ticket so i will see what the sentry says between the feet when i crack open the panel - the only thing that doesnt currently work on it besides the AC is the EGT probe - i heard that is common and a waste to replace it because they only last a couple years then burn out? I just put in a new REI radio as the old original was cutting out due to bad stem/volume control. You had to jiggle it to get to work and crank it up so loud it was awful. REI makes a new short radio that will fit in the hole and a cover plate for the mount as its not stems anymore. They also make an adapter wiring harness that makes it ALMOST plug/play. I only had to put on 4 spade connectors and splice to make it work. I called REI after hours on a saturday and it rang through to a tech that knew exactly my plight. The new modern unit has a ton of features like bluetooth/weather band/aux in/usb port, rca inputs or hi power output also for whatever your needs might be. You can talk n drive now through your phone/the radio and add a mic and Intercom if you want. Pretty dang slick!!!!

  20. I just purchased another 656. Has a Speeco front axle. Seriously considering a narrow front under this one. If I remove the cab........ kinda like the cab on this one.

  21. I cut grass this past weekend with the 656 and 80" woods pull type. Compared to my 450 and 560 gassers, it is a much nicer setup. Smoother running (compared to the 4 cylinder), easier getting on/off, better controls. hydraulics, trans, seat, etc. I will say the 656 notices loads more than the 450. The 450 just walks along, not caring about the mower. I put a 660 governor spring on my 560 years ago so that thing winds up to about 2100 rpm, will hit near 20 mph going down the road (when the stupid brakes aren't locking up). I got the original NF with the 656. Been tossing around the idea of reinstalling that. The Schwartz axle has some play in the steering arm splines. Chris B.

  24. Great looking 300. I have one that I bought, but it was sick when I brought it home. I too added an electronic ignition, new seat, hydraulic hoses for the lift cylinder, and then a camshaft. Mine would run fair for a few days, then like crap. I scratched my head time after time on what the problem was. I lashed the valves, checked the compression, set the timing, but finally tore it down and found the cam gear in pieces. I installed a used cam and it solved all the issues I had. My 300 is my go-to tractor around here, strong and always starts in the hot or cold. It still has it's work clothes on. Yours looks great...
