  1. Thank you guys very much for the tips and advice. I will try all those things out in the next couple days and see what I can get done. As many cylinders as it has I’m sure hoping to find a way to get it done myself. it is an odd little machine. I believe it’s a 89 model, and has a 6 cylinder Mercedes diesel. It has a 4 speed trans with a 2 speed auxiliary and then has a air shift to split each one of those gears. I dont think the loader will be very practical but I can see me getting some use out of the backhoe part once I get it fixed up.
  2. So I recently bought a Unimog FLU419 at a local city auction. It had been sitting about 15 years. I got it running, put 4 tires on it and got it to drive up on the trailer to bring it home. It has a loader on the front and a case backhoe attachment on the rear. It’s supposed to be the same as I believe a 580e backhoe. I got all the hydraulic functions to work but need to rebuild all the cylinders on it. I bought a special tool to remove the glands off the cylinders but even with a 3/4 drive ratchet it wouldn’t attempt to budge them. I even welded the adjustable part up and welded a handle on it to hit with a sledge and couldn’t get it to move. I also tried an air hammer to break them loose. I did remove the little locking screw. What are some better tools or techniques to use to break these down? I’ll include pics of the machine and cylinders. Thanks for any help!
  3. I have a HF press, have put many bushings in combine shaker arms with it. Haven’t had any problems for my occasional use
  4. Nice grader! I have one just a shade newer and smaller, a 112f. I haven’t got real good at operating it yet but I do better than I would with a tractor and a blade. I need a couple more arms and a lot of flat open space to run mine lol. They are tough old things and you don’t have to worry about a lot of electrical problems though.
  5. I haven’t done any business with them so I can’t speak of what kind of company the carb dr website is. Hope that is some help and good luck!
  6. From a little research that may be a zenith 68, 13056. Check out this and see if it looks right.
  7. I’ve been known to hang about 4 suitcase weights on my 480 when the ground is hard. Helps more than you might think.
  8. Well here’s a pic of all the help I could find to rake hay for me lol. She’s good about showing up and putting in the effort but her windrows are not the straightest…….
  9. I bid on the rock rake but was only willing to give about half of what it sold for
  10. I’m pretty sure I took a set of 86 series boxes that were good, cut the straps off them, and then cut the mounting straps off my rusted out 88 series boxes and moved them over. At that time several years ago I wasn’t aware of anyone making new ones. If they are available that would be much easier.
  11. We’ve sold a few the end of last year for $3 a pound hanging weight. I deliver them to the locker plant live and the customer pays all butchering/kill and wrapping fees.
  12. Looks like a neat project and always good to have a helper to fit into tight spots. I recently bought a 95 dodge Cummins, 5 speed, 4x4 out of my neighbors junk pile. He used it for years to feed cows with. It had been sitting for 7 years. I put a battery in it, checked all the fluids and the air filter, primed the lift pump and bled the injector lines and it started up and drove. It has no bed and the cab, front end and frame are so cracked up they are about to fall apart but boy it fires right up and sounds good. They are good old motors.
  13. Thank you very much for the reply, no need to measure if you’ve hauled yours like that before with no problems. I’ll take my tools to take the hitch off and see if I can get it bought. Thanks again!
  14. Does anyone happen to know if a 315 packer mulcher will sit on a 8’ wide trailer? I found a 15 ft one coming up at an auction I was thinking about trying to buy. It looks like the hitch would come off of it without too much trouble. Thanks!-Ryan
