    574 steering

    when mine did that i ended up losing all hydraulics not long after. issue on mine was some rubber piece in the pump came off, got ground into tiny pieces and clogged up the entire system. you can rule that out by checking the filter
  2. i think it's both really. CIH has been jacking up prices left and right to the point where even the parts guys are getting disgusted. priced hygard the other day and it's $89 per bucket. only $10 more then the generic stuff a few dealers are pushing as an alternative to hytran now.
  3. both hytran and engine oil are $120 a bucket here now. i will not be buying any more of either. CIH has gone insane with their pricing to the point where i doubt i'll be buying any more of their equipment
  4. don't worry you'll find out what it was soon enough. likely when you need the tractor most and have the least amount of time to fix it.
  5. i've always had good luck welding nuts. sometimes takes a few tries but eventually it'll work
  6. see if the dealer will be kind enough to print off some wiring diagrams for you so you can actually see how things are supposed to work. they tie so many different things into fuses and relays these days it's pretty much impossible to diagnose any issue without diagrams.
  7. most of the bad you hear about them is the CAPS system.
  8. i just follow the book and use hytran
  9. you can't tell me you've never heard them called boxcar before.

    New Magnum ?

    equipment isn't only getting bigger but also heavier. have you seen some the new smaller stuff? massive frames on some of them. i saw a 25ft disc that looked like it'd weight damn near as much as my tractor it's built so damn heavy. i'm guessing it's because they are using the same materials and maybe even the same main frame as the bigger pieces. i've seen plenty of broken frames so i'm all for buildings things heavy but some of this stuff seems like overkill. that's also why a new 22ft disc costs $60,000
  11. it's the same thing. kinda odd that there's a price difference.
  12. i've always heard the early ones only had the clutch switch and the later ones had both. i know mine didn't have a neutral switch
  13. doesn't take much at all but it does kinda depend on the condition of the engine. my 966 would only ever need a quick 2 second push to start and on really cold day a couple quick shots to keep it running. my 1086 only needed ether under about -10C and only ever needed just a quick shot to start and it was good. ideally you'd just forget the ether and use the block heater but sometimes you don't always know in advance that you're gonna need to start it. i've heard enough horror stories about the ether injector getting stuck and emptying the can to avoid using it as much as i can
  14. my 7240 is exactly the same. i just don't let it hit 2 bars
  15. with 6 volts i like to disconnect the batteries and charge each one on it's own. always seems one gets over charged and one under charged when you do em both at once
