We got this a while back from my paw paw. He passed away back in the summer. So now dad and I have it on our hobby farm. We bale around 500 squares of hay per year. And have 4 cattle to take care of. Some of the hay is sold to who ever wants it. The difference on this compared to our other 4000. Is this one is painted up nicely, pipe beside the hood, and not a Sherman trans.






Video: It has a nice throaty sound!

Thanks, I would love to put a different seat on it. It feels like it will throw you out on the gear shifter. Other than that, we have an issue keeping the charging system going. We fixed it once, and not its out again. With haying over I hope to fix the 2 issues this winter.

I have the Rest O Ride seat on the 861 and love it. Start the thread for the charging system and I'm sure you'll get some sound advice and troubleshooting to follow.
Best of luck with it.

Very good looking tractor. We got a 2000 in the same series. Fine tractors and as smooth as they come.
I agree they are small and put out good power. Excellent for haying.

very nice looking 4000.

ont he charge system.. full field the genny while running and see if charge comes up.

if no.. then bypass cutout and check again.

if bypassing the cutout and/or full fielding it makes it charge.. time for a regulator.

if neither do, slip belt off and jump bat to arm and field. if genny does not spin, time for a rebuild.

You got to make hay when the sun shines, especially in this economy which may even get worse. Plenty of time to sleep when you take that final dirt nap.
