Re: Looking for 885 chassis dimension

Can you clamp a piece of angle or timber etc to each side of the tractor with a sash cramp and measure between them where they stick out the front of the tractor?

Re: 885 q cab throttle seized

Thanks, I will have a look for the inspection plate. Do I need to remove the sound proofing/ trim from around the dash to find the inspection plate or should I be heading towards the cab floor? Guessing I should be looking around number 19/20 for the inspection hatch or is it as simple as removing n...

885 q cab throttle seized

I've found my problem, between the pedal number 18 and part number 25 in the link is seized, can any only help with how to access this area, main number 18? It's not shown in my workshop manual. If it makes any odds my tractor is fitted with a loader so the brackets may be in the way? http://partsto...

Re: A winch for my DB 990

Depending how heavy you need these have a good reputation in the arb/forestry world

if you want smaller the winchmax winches on eBay are good value for money, we pull trees about with a 12000lbs 12v one on a 4x4 when we're working :D

885 q cab seized throttle

Evening all. My 885 has sat in the back of the shed unloved since late sept :oops: It fired up at the first turn of the key which was good but I then discovered that the throttle linkage has seized. It will rev a little (cable stopping it)if you move the lever on the injection pump. The hand throttl...

Re: Which flail for my tractor?

A friend of mine runs one of these flails not sure which model but it surprises me that he runs a 9ft machine on a high 60s hp Kubota tractor and it doesn't make it bark at all, we contract him in for scrub/site clearance work so work his set up hard, I would recommend the machine but no idea which ...

Re: 885 Weight

Thanks all :D
Scoot I can't get the club home page to do much at all, the cog on the left changes colour ok but the menu button in the top right corner doesn't work at all any more. I'm using I pad if that makes any difference. Feel free to ake the Mick if its operator error :lol:

885 Weight

I can't seem to get the specs up on the club home page, probably user error :oops: Does anyone know how much a 1979 885 weighs? Mine is fitted with a q cab and loader brackets (loader not fitted at the moment) The reason I ask is to work out if I could move it legally on a 3.5t trailer with 350kg of...
