Very nice, I used one one time to help dig up some leaking water lines. You should be able to get a lot done with that.

Finally got it home yesterday evening......got a chance to get it off the trailer and that is about it.....I have looked all over the motor for serial numbers etc......according to the manual there should be a silver sticker on the housing......it is no longer there.....

What I want to find out is the serial number.....I am wondering if it was repowered or rebuilt......the hours on the meter are around 2780.
Turn the switch and it cranks right up......decent power but really takes a hit when you put in under a load.....air cleaner was dirty so will pick one up tomorrow if I can find one locally.

Here are a few pictures......pins look good, but the front end is going to need some work.......one hose needs to be replaced (it was leaking when I went to look at it so no surprise).

I have been working on it "refreshing it" for the past week. I have replace all the filters, 1 hydraulic hose with 2 more to go. I cylinder weeps a little but not enough to repack at this point. I really want to put some seat time on it this weekend. Motor is running better and not taking such a hit when I am operating the booms and fel. I have posted the tierod ends that I replaced using Napa parts that the Terramite service guys gave the numbers on......this does not look right to me. Right now I have bought and replaced 2 (power steering cylinder and one on the left side of the tractor). This is just does not look right, so before I buy another one (at $59 each).....wanted y'alls input. I tried to get on the terramite site to send the picture to their service guys but their site must be down at this point......

I agree.....but you would think they would want them to be on top so as not to snag anything as you were driving??

 

I posted on another site that has other terramite owners, hoping someone over there can verify how theirs is set up.

That just doesn't look right to me. Scott how did the old one look compared to this? Was the Bar( Center link) on the bottom before?

The angle will be better but is it correct? Try and see if you can locate a manual online.

 

Looks like a great machine!!

Chris it was set up this way when I bought it....the original tierod was shot so hard to tell if it was correct.

 

I have a parts/service manual and based on the picture the tierods are mounted correctly......the tierods used were the NAPA parts number that the Terramite service guy gave me. I am doing more research, but I agree....it does not look right.

 

Geno,

 

Thanks....yep I am trying to find out more...these tierods are way to expensive to be putting the wrong ones on.

Who knows maybe it is right. There could be a reason why they did it this way. Or PO got tired of snagging things and flipped it over?

 

Good luck in your searching! It looks like one heck of a great machine. :thumbs:
