  1. Looking at a '01 MX 240

    Check to see if it' had the oil pan gasket update done, parts are cheap but the engine has to come out to do it. Also have them check the cam for wear, our dealer had to replace several at about that many hours, not sure if they weren' hardened right or what but the lobes where wearing down. Our 240 is at 7,900 hours and those updates along with a new CAPS pump where done at 5,500 hours and have been the only big repairs, we'e replaced some hydraulic hoses, cab power relay and an MFD hub seal but that' all pretty minor.
  2. Stupid question about 88 series seats...

    Our 6788 had the fold down arm rest and our 5488 does not but I wish it did.
  3. Thinking about a new toy

    On the CAPS pump tractors the engine is detuned for a split second when shifting gears to make the shift smoother, the P pump doesn' do that and the shifts on the MX tractors aren' much rougher but they say the STX tractors shift unacceptably hard with P pumps. I know of two guys who tried the conversions on STXs and changed back to CAPS pumps right away.
  4. Thinking about a new toy

    Two downsides to the tractor is it has a CAPS fuel pump and the 4wds don' do well with P pump conversions and the other is the 275s tend to be underpowered because they have a realitivly small hp rating in a heavy chassis.
  5. Anyone installed one of Dave Thomure exhausts on a MX

    Have a muffler eliminator and chrome pipe on our MX 240, it' slightly louder inside but really barks outside. Ours is 10 years old and I have had zero issues.
  6. What's the story on this Magnum?

    I thought it was called MAU, Magnum Articulated Unit but according to my wife I've been wrong before.
  7. Our sons new service truck

    Altorfer has pretty much gone to medium duty service trucks, Heartland AG runs them too and they still say they are maxed out for how much weight the trucks will carry.
  8. Best spot to get Magnum cab relay

    The new "old" style ones Case IH sell are from China, Hy-Capacity offers a Chinese one or a Mexican one that' better. The new style from Case IH have been very reliable in the MX Magnums.
  9. 1586 and vacuum planter

    What size planter? We ran a six row 7200 on our closed center 1086 no problem but it had marginal hydraulic capacity to raise our 12 row with a PTO pump.
  10. Borrowed this for a few days.

    I've got a 72" Wildkat rock bucket with grapple that's 4 years old now, the welds aren' anything special but we've used it hard and had zero issues with it. I think I paid $1,850 and $200 for shipping. I thought the design of this bucket was the best all around design and Wildkat was a lot cheaper than other brands.

  12. 3pt trailer hitch adapter

    Do you need my address to mail a check too? If your serious $600 plus shipping will get you one, you can buy cheaper ones but you'l have a hard time finding one built better.

    I've built 3 bale movers like this with receiver hitch tubes in them.
  14. Tractor hours

    We have a 1066 with 4,000 hours, bought it off a neighbor' estate about 15 years ago with 1,900 hours. He bought it new and a couple years later he let go of his rented ground so it was only used on his 120 acre farm which was 40 acres pasture, 40 acres hay and 40 acres crop ground. For 30 years all he did with the 1066 was some tillage and moving round bales of hay, he had a 560 and an M for the light work.
  15. What is an R-1W tire?

    Remember that the deeper lugs on the R1W will wear a lot longer.
