Thanks so much! Now to sell the x744 sitting in the background before my wife complains about two tractors in the garage :)
Just tell her that you took a poll of about 100K tractor forum members and they unanimously stated that you can't have too many!

I spent the last few days putting removable extensions on my 48inch snowplow. It's now 60inches. Then I repainted it, put new decals on it and put it in the barn.. ..it's almost too pretty to use! Winter is headed for Michigan!!!!

I found a bagger local for a decent deal. I jerry rigged up a mount for it and used it to mow today. I am really impressed how nice the cut quality is with the pflow adding that extra lift.


I also tried mowing with the bucket off. It’s much less cumbersome, but still a little long and I also still feel the weight of the loader arms. I spun in a few places I don’t normally. That is likely the tipping point on getting the rear tires loaded with Rimguard.

I still need to modify my bucket to receive the SSQA, but that shouldn’t be too bad. I have another mount plate on the way to build a forks attachment. I think I’m going to really like the quick attach set up.

It a shame to pull all the lines out of the steering valve on the 445 just to replace one that has sprung a leak. My luck would have been to replace the line and then have another start leaking at the o-ring. Oh well, all lines will get new o-rings on both ends, may as well do it right or be prepared to do it again. Now the wait begins for JD to receive both cylinder hoses and the tee adapter for the radiator. As you can see in the pic before disassembly there was no sight of any seeping. On another note, the designer in charge of this should have been the one that had to repair every single unit when needed.

would like to see some details on that. I have the 48" plow and when fully angled it just isn't wide enough for the x500

Ha ha, my wife told me when I bought the 332 and the 318 that 2 had to go. They are still here. ;)

I guess this counts as something. I bought a nice set of old wheel weights today. nice price had been looking for a good long time. 2x M11028's. going to make them pretty for some reason and use them on a set of rims/tires for winter plow work. They came w/ 6" carriage bolts but looks like those are going to be a touch short, I think 7-7.5" is the right length but still some time before the snow flies (but it's starting to trend that way). will stainless or even regular galvanized carriage bolts do the trick here? Can't see why I would need anything more burly, they just need to hold them to the rim at relatively low speed, right?

I bought a used x748 yesterday...drove 8 hrs to pick it up for what i think was a great deal. Found it on tractorhouse...only 354 hours.

Got it all shined it up today...I'm super excited. It was advertised as a 2008, but it's actually a 2011.
Beautiful machine! Hard to believe it cleaned up so nicely, and that the seller didn't bother before listing it!

Changed the improper 15amp power plug fuse with the correct 20amp fuse on my X485.

arts n crafts this morning. Anyone ever mount their rims backwards, inside-out? The offset is a little different on these project rims and would be perfect if I mounted them backwards

Yes, people have mounted rims backwards. Some are actually designed to do that, specifically to allow for different offset/track.
