    Looks like someone wants they’re own SSCUT forum. Semi Sub Compact ... They should have called it 1045R or some such. Or does it actually qualify as a 2 series?

    I refuse ro have tractor envy! The 2025 is not much bigger. Certainly cant compare to the 2038 (including price). A poor mans MCUT! Im happy to remain a SCUT. There is a lot of activity over here that pertains to the 2025. Besides...you have Tim, Ken, and Sulley so I could never bail on that crew!

    We will permit it. For now.......But if you get to "big" for us 1 series guys, well then we will have to see.......

I also wonder if that was a factory connection or was that connection last tightened at the dealer with one of my hydraulic upgrades (hydraulic MMM lift or 3rd mid scv?).

    I do think I'll report it to the dealer just to get it on record. Between this and the front tie rod that rubs against the MMM mounting bracket, I'm starting to question Deere quality control.
    I have to say that it took me a minute to get Oriented to DanW's photo and I wonder if the dealer would have had that loose for some reason. In any event, tighten up and solves the problem is about as good a solution as you could ask for. I have to say I just had my tractor's second anniversary and its at 394 hours on the clock and so far, I did have one of the rubber lines for the quick hitch develop a pin hole leak and the dealer custom made me all new lines (all 4 of the lines on the quick hitch) and he replaced the line and that was the extent of any leaks or any warranty or service issues.

    I STRONGLY suggest any of you who use the machine for snow removal, whether its blower, blade or pusher or some other means of snow removal, order the John Deere Hydralic fluid dye, which turns the Hydro Fluid Red. When you are doing snow removal, you have all sorts of trailing lines of water and they are often under the tractor, or originating where there could be a hydraulic leak. By adding the red dye, it makes the leaks, should they occur, very easy to see.

    I can't tell you after the pin hole leak, which only leaked at VERY HIGH PRESSURE and sprayed Hydro Oil all over the tractor and made quite the mess even ending up on the cab roof, every time I would see a "drip trail" in the snow, it would make me wonder if there was a new leak. Thus far, there hasn't been. But having the fluid bright red, so it looks like a homicide trail, eliminates all doubt whether the trail you see is important or not. Just for clarity, I don't have a lot of experience with homicide blood trails, but that's another story.........

    For those interested, the dye is John Deere part number MT3668. It's a small glass jar, wrapped in foam in a box and the jar is about 15% full when you open it. So, when you open the jar, should you use the dye, it should be just a partial jar as the dye is very concentrated. If you haven't cleared snow with your tractor yet, you are going to be surprised how many things drip off the machine due to engine heat, exhaust smoke melting snow, etc. etc. Once you get that leak trail in your mind, its very reassuring to know if its not RED, its not important when you see drips and drops and trails from your tractor in the winter.

    Wow, I was mentioned in the same breath with genuine tractor ROYALTY......I feel very privileged, but I doubt Tim and Ken would feel the same, they probably think including me is dragging down the quality of the group......

    I was going to make a comment about needing a grapple until I saw that slope. I was stunned to silence at that point.

    Yeah, I guess I could've identified that better. For anyone else it's just behind the left rear tire as you sit on the tractor. When I saw the leak, in particular the amount of fluid that was coming out and from where, I was pretty sure it was just a loose fitting but had 2 options at that point. Make use of the warranty and wait an unknown amount of time for the repair, or just tighten the fitting. Worst case if it still leaked I'd be saving the mechanic some diagnostic time, although I admit having a mechanic come out just to tighten a fitting would have been pretty embarrassing.

    As I was tightening that fitting I was wondering how long it would have taken me to notice this in the snow. Once again, this forum and Sullybear come through. Good news is I use highway diesel so I won't have to worry about which red liquid I'm leaking if I see drops.

    I couldn't find MT3668 on Green Parts Store or Deere parts for that matter, but Amazon carries it. Interesting how many of the positive reviews on Amazon are from Kubota owners.

    You're looking in the wrong place. Green Farm parts shows it in stock. And they are a supporting vendor at our forum here. I try to support them whenever possible. Plus we get a nice 7% discount for being GTT members.

    For me that blade is the only way to go. When there is some vines and other things laying on the ground I use it to also cut it up in tiny pieces so I don't have to chip it or move it into a pile. If I have a lot of vines I'll pile it up and use that blade to cut it into pieces that way too. Just run the flat part of the blade up and down on the pile and it cuts it up pretty good. I only use it for my winter projects but I love it.

    Thanks Sulley. You are right on the chin whiskers for now though. I'm letting it grow as there is a little gal in WV that likes it that way. I will keep it trimmed shorter then a billy goat.

    Levi,,, nice looking job,

    I thought our property was steep,,,NOPE yours is STEEP .

    Some of the area I mow in Morgantown is close to being that steep, but thankfully maybe 12-25' in height.

    I may have to find my blade and start using it instead of saw blade I've used .
