  1. Great pictures. Glad to see you back. The fact that these tractors are so close to farm tractor is great. I always chuckle that these guys have absolutely no safety equipment whatsoever.
  2. Handle is 17 1/2 over all. Handle is 1.00 OD. Looks like balls on the end have a pin in it for removal. Balls on end are 1.61 diameter. If you need more info I can get it.
  3. Thanks for posting. Is the syrup corrosive and that’s why it’s a stainless pipe? Would like to see a picture of the crane when done. At work I just start led using a new truck that has a 7500 pound crane. I’m not sure how I got by without it.
  4. IMHO Firestone 23 degree all traction radial top choice if you want the best tire. I know guys are bashing them but we have been using SAT 2 on our bedding tractors for years. Priced right seem to last lots of gravel driveways and concrete. High chance of casualty. We have had a bunch that have been patched 4-5 times and we still worn them out. Not many have needed tubes. We have also used quite a few BKT which as mike mentioned are not nearly as heavy in the sidewall. We are running Michelin on all our high use field tractors but now you can’t hardly get one and the price is out of this world. Mitas is like a continental very thin sidewall. I would not recommend Michelin in this application.
  5. No I like it. I pointed it out because any time a 4020 3020 is advertised it is usually made a big deal out of by the advertiser. Fed a lot of cows with A 3020 with a 158 loader that had remotes on dash. Thought it worked well because when you got to mixer you could dump loader with one hand and shift with the other. That tractor was on of the special ones ( worn out) that you could get the extra reverse in the 4 th 7 th quadrant. For field work side console is definitely better.
  6. Oriskany falls. Seems to have an endless supply of tractors with almost no hours.
  7. Remotes and three point hitch are to your right instead on the dash in front of you. It was changed about halfway through production run.
  8. Come on it’s a side console!! With new rear tires!! Do they actually sell for those prices? It’s three times new. I have run a few 4020/3020. Never seen one that was not well worn in. They were popular and well liked here. I thinK I would buy one and do my own reconditioning before I paid that kind of money. There is a guy east of here that sells older deeres that always have ridiculously low hours and ridiculous price tags. Stronger 800 might know who I’m talking about.
  9. We had a 1966 at Work. Single front axle. Started out life as a concrete truck with a 230 Cummins and a 13 speed. Finished life with a big cam 400 and a 5 speed allision. We also had 1972,1975, 78,79 and one that was about built out of parts. All the rest were 270 and 290 Cummins all sorts of transmissions. I would think it likely the one in that picture has a spicer 5x4. Seems like it would fit the application. Cool picture. Thanks for sharing.
  10. Congratulations to the both of you!
  11. If you are diligent with maintenance and change the filters and coolant when needed the green will work fine. If that job always gets pushed to the bottom of the list I would go with something with the conditioner already it. If you are changing from green to something else flush out good with water first. If you have gotten along well with green I see no reason to change.
  12. Sorry about your dad. From the things you have posted I do believe he is in a better place. Even with the strain in your guys relationship I commend you for pointing out his good qualities and what you learned from him.
  13. That will work just fine. I know a guy that would run that until it failed again and probably try to fix it again. Whenever we get new hubs we drill them for grease fittings. We also have a bearing packer. As long as everything is full at the start we find they last along time. We have found many machines that came new from the factory with very little grease at all in the hubs. Like the bearings are barely covered.
  14. Good that you had parts and were able to get it back together. We used to have over center clutches on our manure pumps with very short driveshafts between pump and clutch. Those were nothing but trouble. We converted them to direct drive by bolting a bell hosing to the bearing box on the pump and installing a rubber drive hub on the flywheel. These pumps did not require belts to increase or reduce speed.
