The instrument panel turned out much better than it started with that awful clouded over bezel. THe satin black border covered most of the red RTV

Next up, I wanted to add some protection to the myriad of steel hydraulic lines criss crossing the loader boom. All I really need to a deflector of sorts to heep a pesky locust branch from catching a line and prying it loose or kinking it

4" Convoluted rain gutter tubing is the answer!

I cut it to length, then made a longitudinal cut in it, then slipped it over the loader cross over, then taped it back together with electrician tape

Some lines had been forced out of their pillow blocks, so I persuaded them to reengage with my trusty rubber mallet. A few zip ties will ensure future compliance to my non movement policy.

Those two long flex lines running up to the bucket control the 4-1 cylinders

Each has been ripped off the bucket. Si I'm trying something different here. I took a section of that schedule 80 electrical PVC conduit and sliced it in a spiral. That gives it the ability to flex, and yet remain rigid enough to deflect invasive branches. I'll test it out over the summer to see if it is a good idea or a bad one

Now for the overhead LED light box.

There was a pigtail which was hot, coming out of the fusebox for future additions. Well, this light is THAT addition. I had a switch that was very much like the factory ones, so I created a rectangular opening and wired that circuit in.

Instead of spiral cut PVC, couldn't you use the flexy aluminum hose for dryers or whatnot? Might be a little more resistant to stabby grabby things than the spirals, especially if they are flexed open and something grabs hold.

I felt the loader was getting pretty beat up looking and it was rusting everywhere. Now this isn't really a problem, as it is made from really thick steels. But to make it last longer, I sanded the whole thing, first with #80 grit, then chased it with #120. Then I washed it with laquer thinner and taped up parts that didn't need paint

Aft quadrant aspect...Note that one of the factory "Rock" lights bulbs is not working. Hes something to do with the fact that a locust tree pulverized the bulb. No worries, I'll buy some LED replacements from Super Bright LED's

So far so good on the lights, switch and covers. Maybe extend the 4in all the over the fittings and and clamp it? Surprised all those hoses are that exposed.

Like to see on the farm with no reflections. Looks like you have good coverage. Maybe some side lights? Don't want to get flanked!!

I got most of the tool box and pioneer equipment rack done today.

First, take a look at how well that J-Deere paint flowed out! Val Spar makes it, a high quality acrylic enamel which uses a catalyst hardener to set things im motion. Hardeners also gloss up paint as is evident in the photo

There will be a lot more going into the tool box to include some spare parts, pins, a hyd line or two, a lug nut, and who knows what else

I started by cutting out the "Pan" which will hold the tool box

A simple steel cable secured to an over-centering latch will hold all that business securely in place.

I have to comment on the welding table though. I'd say that 7/16 OSB works well, as it doesn't get straight into rolling flames, allowing you time to extinguish it which in turn allows for additional welding!

The latch seems to hold fairly well and the keeper pin keeps jolts from occasionally driving into old abandoned wells from causing tool boxes and who knows what from falling off!

The initial fit was OK. I used the existing turn signal lower bolt and drilled a 3/8" hole below that as well. Thinking about it, adding that tool box will increase the tractors performance!

Really!

All that extra weight centered perfectly over the rear wheels will add untold traction. I can probably get back to mowing medium size oak trees again!

Oh, the shotgun is the gun I chose for general farm use because of critters. I am running into a bunch of those "Cotton-Heads" and "Water-Mouths" and a shotgun will work on them.

One day I fear those ostrich sized turkey I keep seeing will attack me, like on the creepy TV advertisement. A 12 gage will kill turkey. Same-Same for killer whitetail. Man needs to defend himself against marauding Deer, hand him a 12 gage.

A fella finds another fella's still all set up on his creek, like the other fella was given permission...Like that. Well, a 12 gage is like anti aircraft fire to Hueys on short final. Cuts em to pieces and causes the aircrew to abandon the bird and go away!

Should someone come along enroute to his happy tobaccy patch...Also on your farm. If he starts arguing the finer points of the law, a 12 gage can aid him in seeing your point of view.

And finally, There are not one, but TWO Friggin Black Bears hanging near the stream on my place. I thought the two competing packs of coyotes were the last word in food chain climbers, but a higher up the rung species seems to have come ah' callin'

I'll leave them alone but if they the bears) get to feeling like the person setting up a still, or the other person using my rich soil for no-good reasons. If they get difficult to reason with, then the 12 gage, once again, clears the air of confusion!

Bears! What next...Crop Circles?????

Yes it is

Has a combat charging knob, sling adapter, front flashlight rail, 6 round shotshell holder on receiver, and getting to be a lot of useage.

Pluses: one handed operation. I like to train with one handed shooting sometimes.

Minuses: Gets hard to load when dirty. If you don't fully seat shell in tube it will eject onto the ground when you fire the round in the chamber.

Like every weapon, you simply need to train with this gun

I think we should dub the Tac Trac as Square D II, its even green!

Like to see which mount you will use for the mossy. My KSG has a similar issue. You have to rack it like you mean to, no weak wrist stuff!!

So I read this thread, but just to clarify you're gunna now keep on beating this tractor until you kill it for good on that farm of yours?
I shopped it around in the $29,995 range and got a bite. I ran that down and that hole went dry. I paid over $40K for that unit, which is the absolute flagship for tractors of that size. I bought it on zero percent financing and I almost have it paid off.
So,
After fixing the simple thing that was wrong with it (Although it caused aggravation to me) it is still about the best hydrostatic 66HP Compact tractor in the world.

I decided to pay it off, take it a little easier on it, but focus on some handy implements, and after it is paid off, then If I still need a bigger tractor, then I'll just go buy one and keep this one.

I don't know if I'll stay up in my big country home near the city that I have my butt parked at for the moment. But it has the Skagg zero turn which is a life-timer. So the little 1025 Deere, mulch carrier will shuttle between places as I need it. This 4720 will live its life down at the hide, and in time a bigger brother will move in as well. We will put up a proper barn and Sarge and these tractors will move in there. For working critters and utility work, this 4720 is fantastic, and wifey friendly, so I see it staying around.

I guess that's the smarter plan...

I still need an excavator and some sort of forestry saw, and a sawmill. I plan to add property to this place until it grows to about 450 acres. I have some unique things I wish to do there, so I'll need the additional heavy equipment...and for all those reasons...I'm out!
