• LawnSite Homepage Upgrade

    Hello again LawnSite community,

    I wanted to post a quick note to let you know that the homepage of LawnSite will experience a major upgrade later this week. We’re always looking for ways to improve our users’ experience on the site, and felt that this upgrade was needed and long overdue..

    With this upgrade, you’ll now see the top trending posts as soon as you visit LawnSite, and these will be updated throughout the day. You can also easily access videos and photos. As always, we encourage you to include videos and photos in your own posts to share with your fellow LawnSite users.

    Be assured that all of the forums, content and data that you’ve been accustomed to will remain intact, as will all current site features. You’ll also be able to easily access the full list of forums directly from our new homepage.

    We’re excited to bring you this change, and look forward to hearing your feedback.

    Thanks, LawnSite Team

  4. can you put a gate on a tilt trailer?

    sure you can. I added one to my 6x10. I also welded the front of the trailer down. Doesnt tilt anymore. Few hrs of work, and about $225.00 worth angle iron and expanded steel.
  5. 5 or 6 foot wide trailer?

    go with the 6' trailer. Not much price difference b/w the two. You wont notice any real improvements on towing. Little more weight to pull but you wont have as much trailer sway.
  6. replacement kohler w/o oil cooler

    I have found a really good deal on a new kohler cv-730s as an extra replacement engine. currently I have all 25hp kohlers. The only drawback if any, this engine has no oil cooler. I know for fact that this engine came off a new but damaged scotts mower. It runs as a new should. Any real big...

  8. ztr hydraulic pump rebuild???

    I dont have any that are bad, but it has been pondered if the drive pumps can be rebuilt? Are there kits for this? Sure, its easier just to swap, just curious if anyone has rebuilt one with any luck?
  9. Small Trailer Dealer in NC?

    Hartsog Trailer Co. in North Wilkesboro has the best prices that I have found. They always beat everyone's prices by $300.00. Course it may not benefit you being in Chapel Hill. Owensby Trailer in Greensboro (336) 299-5660 is another, but their prices are inline with everyone else.
  10. new cv25s hard to spin over

    I recently replaced my bobcat zt200 engine. It is a cv25s spec 69538. the engine is new, however when you attempt to spin it over, it wants to spin 1 round then lock. Spin another round then lock. It sounds like it has so much compression its hard to spin over. Problem gets worse as the engine...

    no known problems to speak of. We have 5 of these mowers 22hp +25hp both run excellent. top notch mowers. The mowers that we have range between 800-1700 hrs. No real problems other than normal wear on clutches etc.
  13. short crank

    how long is the new crank. if the engine seems to be ok and you dont want to mess with it, I might be interested if you want to sell it.
  14. short crank

    i had a cv22 on a bobcat mower that had warped heads. I bought off ebay a cv25 that had a 7/8" shorter crankshaft. Luckily bobcats have a spacer welded to the engine to deck pulley and had plenty of room to cut off 7/8'' off that spacer to work perfect. 7/8'' isnt much to cut off when the belt...

    last week my septic system was replaced. My entire backyard has NO grass. I have gotten it ready to reseed. What seed would you recommend to help control the mud over the winter? Annual rye- is this the same as winter rye? Currently the temps are in the 40's and high 20's to low 30's at night.
