Re: Pulling 3 bottom plow

Thanks all! Blackbob, why do you suggest narrowing the front furrow? And I tried to lengthen the top link, but even with a 3 foot pipe wrench it wasn't moving! And I don't believe I have skimmers. Looks like nice light soil, but alot of clay. My garden suffer because of it, my carrots/potatoes wont ...

Pulling 3 bottom plow

Hello all! So last year I found a 3 bottom Furgeson plow at a great deal so I bought it for my acreage and Super Major. This past weekend I finally got around to adding the 3rd bottom (PO removed it to only use as a 2 bottom) and took it for a spin on a 2 acre plot. Shined up fairly nicely, cuts gre...

Re: Super Major Minimec oil leak

The pigtail? I don't think so, where abouts would it be?

I am hoping to get around to fixing it soon, but I have lots to do in the coming weeks, so we'll see when I get around to it.

Thanks, Craig

Super Major Minimec oil leak

Hello, so I seem to have developed a leak at the rear of the Minimec fuel pump, it seems like the rear plate that is bolted on with the tach drive.

Is it safe to unbolt this plate? is there anything behind that may pop out/fall out?

Thanks, Craig

Homemade snowblower

Hello! Been a while since I've posted, been busy but the Super Major has been running good! Finally had a decent snowfall here 2 weeks ago, and I got to try out the homemade snowblower my grandpa had built. Works good, about 6" of snow, and of course I had a pass done before I thought to record it w...

Re: Engine Oil

Been a while since I've been on here, but getting ready for oil change in my super major, and was wondering the best engine oil, as I use it all year long, and live in Northern Alberta, Canada where it gets to -40C, and will be used to plow snow regularly in -20/30C weather. At the same time, I use ...

Re: My super major

So its a Robin loader? I was kinda wondering what kind it was.
Sorry origin, I don't have power steering, I think the loader frame is right in the way. It actually looks like on mine the pitman arm was modified to be shorter and not interfere with the loader frame, is yours the same way?

Re: My super major

Thanks, I'm quite enjoying it so far. It was previously owned by my late grandfather, and he just used to for light farm work and cutting the grass, but it is my acreage tractor, and am hoping to do some farming with it this spring. I can't wait myself to see the snowblower in action, I only had it ...

Re: New member, hydraulic issue

Success! While I was working outside, I had a herman nelson heater blowing on the rear of the tractor for 6 hours, and thawed it nicely. I drained all the oil, got a fair bit of water at the very beginning, and lots of slush when I was pouring it from my catch can into old pails. As it is still -20,...

Re: New member, hydraulic issue

Adrian, where is the plate holding the oil screen in place mounted? I was thinking of using a herman nelson heater to warm up the back end, and try draining to see if its free flowing or full of moisture.

Thanks, Craig

Re: New member, hydraulic issue

Im really hoping it is just moisture plugging off the inlet screen, and was thinking once i get it warmed up and running, I'll drain it and put new oil in, and the oil thats in it does look good, so maybe i'll keep it and and see if any moisture settles out. Origin, do you just have the mat oil pan ...

Hello, Im Craig, in Alberta, Canada. I recently inherited a Super Major complete with front end loader, snowblower and back blade. I've used it a few times since bringing it to my place, and 2 weeks ago, I used the bucket to move a few things around, got off with to move some other stuff by hand, an...
