    We would like to introduce the new GTT Tool Store. The link to the store is on the top navigation bar, just before the "whats new" button. This area is Green Tractor Talk's Amazon store front and we have stocked it with miscellaneous tools and accessories that you might need for working with your tractor, property or home. This section will not compete with vendors or carry the same items.

    We set this store up to give people the option to purchase items from Amazon and support Green Tractor Talk while doing it. The prices are the same here that they are on Amazon.

    This site has some of the best members on the web and is very helpful to all, and we would like to keep it this way. The tiny portion we make off this store will help cover our operating fees. We hope that you enjoy looking around, even if you do not buy anything. There are a lot of cool items with great prices to look at.

    We are open to suggestions for items to add to our store and can add a members favorites category if we have the participation to put that together.

    Thanks for your support!

    It seems a few owners haven't gotten their new 1 series tractors equipped with either the 54 or 60D mower setup correctly. This will explain how to do it yourself for the best possible mower performance! Most if not all of this information can be found in the John Deere Owner's Manuals for the mower and the tractor. The procedure is the same for the 54" ...

    Ok, I am going to start this thread hoping others who own or use a 1026R will join me and add to it. Today I ran the middlebuster through the garden. I have a tiller, but cut the driveshaft down to run it behind the X728, and now it is a bit too short. I will replace it in the spring, so I put the buster on today. The soil was soft, but with 4WD engaged and steady forward motion, not a tire was spun. The buster measures about 18" from the tip, up to where it attaches to the Omni Mfg. Transformer hitch. Performance was stellar, the 1026R didn't even know the buster was back there! It was a windy day, so I held the camera, sorry the video isn't much, but it's better than nothing. Oh and I really like the turnbuckles on the outside of the lift arms, very easy to adjust. I also included a pic of the hitch with the 2" receiver on it. ...

    For those with 2320's, here is a VERY important update for your manual. I have read about some failures in the drive-lines on these machines, appearently JD has recognized it as well.
    by Published on 04-18-2012 12:35 PM

    Regen is a "feature" of most modern FEL (Front End Loader) valves, it's on the Dump (joystick far right) circuit, and is also referred to as "Fast Dump". The reason it is nice to have is that without it, the weight of a filled bucket can actually "pull" the bucket down faster then the fluid can enter the other side of the cylinder, this will create a air pocket and give the bucket a "floppy" feeling until the joystick is held in the dump mode a few seconds to refill the cylinder pushing the air past the seals. So we add "regen" or "regenerative" function to the valve.

    Regen solves this problem by actually filling both sides of the cylinder at the same time with hydraulic fluid. But how will that work you might ask? Well, because there is more volume on the side of the cylinder that extends it since the rod is taking up space in the other side, it "overpowers" the rod side and lets the cylinder extend-thereby dumping the bucket. So since now both sides of the cylinder are "pressurized", the air pocket can not develop, eliminating the "floppy" bucket syndrome. One other added bonus is that the bucket actually dumps faster due to the higher flow rate required to do all this, that's why it's referred to as "fast dump" sometimes.

    So, now you may be asking "This is cool and all that, but why do I need to know about it?" The answer to that is simple, if you ever try to run a snow plow with two SA (single acting) cylinders, or a cylinder that drives a chute rotator on a snowblower you will soon find out that they won't work if you push the joystick to far right in the regen mode. The plow won't work because since both lines are pressurized-both cylinders will be trying to extend at the same time binding everything up. The rotator won't work because there is no weight pushing the cylinder closed like there is on the loader.
    On most, if not all John Deere tractors there is a "lockout" the limits how far the joystick travels to the right to keep it out of the regen mode.
