We had to go into town yesterday to get several things done, the first being to stop at Tuscaloosa Tractor to pick up the three-point hitch adjusting arm I had on order. As I said in a blog post the other day, our friend Justin Abrams was able to fix the one I have now, […]

Last month one of the adjuster arms for my Kubota tractor’s three-point hitch bent and got cross-threaded and I had to order a replacement. I’m not sure what I did, but I managed to somehow do the same thing to the new one in the last few days. So it was back to calling Tuscaloosa […]

Yesterday I went to Tuscaloosa Tractor and picked up the new lower adjuster arm for my Kubota’s three-point hitch. Before I left the house, […]
