  1. Pretty slick. I remember when I was little watching my cousin split their magnum to do a flex plate and the ensuing panic when they popped that yoke and hytran gushed out
  2. Why are you on a red site if you're such a die hard green guy obviously? I'd never compare a 560 to a 4010, I compare a "new" series to a "new" series with the 06's The "decades to catch up" comment is nothing but a subjective buzz phrase
  3. I guess that's one way to make ends meet in the dairy business....

    Blame "lean" or "jit" some but the real elephant in the room us you CANT hit pause and shut a large portion of the economy down and pay people to do nothing, then expect everything to roar right back to life with no issues. THAT started this whole mess, and it certainly was/is an effect from a political cause.
  5. Please show me one person who said that the steering on their '06 tractor was subpar........I've been following tractor forums for years and never ever heard that as a downfall......

  8. Oh I know all about it. I really wonder what crossed Deeres mind whenever they pretty much marketed the most complex tractors possible before stuff really was needed to be complex. The hydraulic system always makes me wonder. Closed center hydraulics really weren't a necessity in ag tractors whatsoever until vacuum meter planters came out. Other than that? Farmers just needed stuff to go up and down and not get their arm torn off hitting a dead furrow with good power steering. Did their stuff work good when it worked? No doubt but it's literally quadruple the headaches and cost to repair compared to similar vintage equipment? On an IH of similar vintage biggest hydraulic problem is usually needed an MCV pump, relief valve, or a leaking hand pump. Pretty cheap easy stuff to tackle by comparison.
  9. Am I the only one who thinks Deere really overcomplicated a steering system? (Just like SCV's too)
  10. We have all used "homie made" tooling. Fellow, or even a dealer sometimes I think would go broke buying all the doo dads anymore.
  11. See this so much anymore in all business, instead of promoting from within you bring it outsiders who "talk a good talk". I'm sure some are very qualified but theres a lot of snake oil salesmen too just wanting to get a paycheck and dont fully understand what goes on. This also breeds animosity in the rank and file realizing theres nowhere to move up as they age and gain experience. I have "0" pity for Deere (and other MFGR's as well) who have done nothing but find ways to further monopolize the market by consolidating dealers, stifling competition, and playing labor games. I really cant stand a lot of union shenanigans but I believe they have a solid beef here.
  12. Figures you would pop out of the woodwork to make a dbag comment.....
  13. What is the purpose of that hose?
  14. It's not water, its definitely aeration as it is clear after it settles out. Also is frothing enough its bringing the level up well above full.
  15. Neighbor purchased a Hydro 86 out of NY (sight unseen I believe) and barely got to run it much before it petered out. Gave me a ring to look at it tonight and stopped for a quick look on the way home and it is very weak and stalls at a low drive pressure both directions. Pulled dipstick to check oil and found the problem quickly as the oil is frothed like a cappuccino. If this were a gear drive I'd look right away at the little jumper tube into the pumps, but this being a hydro and having that big suction manifold for the charge/servo pump, where are common suction leaks at? I think air is getting into the hitch pump as well as even though hydraulics work, they're a bit noisy and you can feel air in the steering circuit after you shut it off.
