  1. We have used a 4186 and a 500 bushel size cart for the past couple years. It works good for us, we found the cart just seemed to big for our 2 wheel drive tractors and with any wet conditions they were useless. The 4186 handles it great and is awesome in the mud, almost impossible to stop. It has a rugged drawbar and the crazy backwards hyd. levers on the left side of the seat are in a good spot for the cart unloading. That being said it is awkward sometimes, but for our size and acres it’s fine. Seems to work fine for unloading on the go, we use a 1460. We don’t have a lot into the tractor, just a auction pickup that nobody was bidding on and it followed us home. Hopefully we will have a 7240 or similar someday and have something more comfortable.
  2. It is a 1972, we have had for 35 years now. It was a short tractor. We stretched, doubled the frame and added the hoist and rack. Still has the original Cat 1160 in it.
  3. It seems to work good. It was perfect this year with the mud. It is unstoppable, also the drawbar is heavier so it take the tongue weight better than our 3588. We bought it at a auction just by chance this year and didn’t need it but thought it needed a home. It runs perfect and everything works on it. I know it is kinda of a stepchild but I like it and it is very cheap horse power.
  4. Love looking at everyone’s pics. Here are some of my fall pics, seemed like fall went fast. Got to cold and wet to fast. All done at least and equipment cleaned and parked.
  5. Matt, the best thing to do is swap out the York pump for the Sandin style. Use the stock hose with adapter. I have done a 1586 for a friend with no problem and the Sandin works way better. I just finished our 3588 the other day and works great. Also check expansion valve if not new replace that also. Brian
  6. Thanks for the reply's, I dug into it this afternoon and removed the pump and disassembled it. I found one of the pistons in the pump bad. It is coming apart and is all hacked up. I'm happy I found something and now feel better about spending $1500 on a reman pump. And glad it didn't totally self destruct and cause bigger problems. It has been doing this for a couple of years and I wanted to figure it out while I had it in the shop this spring. Just finished a entire new cab interior and all new AC system so hopefully it should be good to go.
  7. I have a question on our 3588, it has a bad chatter in the hydro system when using the remotes and 3 point hitch. All hydro functions seem ok, plenty of lifting power and speed in the hitch. I thought it may be cavitating so I replaced seals on hitch pump suction inlet and checked the screen and orifice in the signal line to the pump. I don't have any real knowledge of these PFC style pumps but it sure seems like that's what's making the noise when it starts working to move hitch or remotes. Is it common for these PFC pumps to fail. Any suggestions would be helpful, thanks.
