Harvest continues forward with our biggest mishap so far this year. Everyone is okay. The tractor however is not. It crashed into the ditch.

    If you can't buy that exhaust piece directly I would be willing to bet that a shop that does aftermarket systems for diesel pickups would have one that would fit. You might be able to get stainless which should last a little longer. That's scary with the tractor. I almost ran over my Dad while driving a borrowed WD-45 when I was about 10 because of a part failure. A pin fell out of the foot clutch linkage and I wasn't familiar with the hand clutch. Thankfully I did get it stopped between the hand clutch and the brakes but there was literally less than a yard between Dad and rear tire. I was yelling at him to move and he just stood there and then got mad at me for yelling at him. Yeah fun times.

    Glad nobody was hurt. I dislike the “recommendation” that the brakes be locked together fir road use. As it’s possible to change direction with the brake. (At least in smaller non dualed/weighted front end tractors). I can often slide front over even if front tires are pointed another direction. (May have used that on a few city folks kids as I let them “drive” at slow speed while I sit to right.). “Watch out for your dads car..turn left, left...” in low gear.

    This is why driving tractors at high speeds has always scared the sheezy out of me. We were lucky at our farm that all our fields were within a few miles of each other. I feel bad for you Midwest guys with fields that are an hour drive away.

    My brother had the exact same thing happen on a tractor with 10 hours on it. He was pulling a 3 axle manure tank but lost brakes and steering. New Holland got involved and installed a new design to protect hydraulic lines from failed driveshaft. He was told that they were recalling all of that model type, so you should maybe try calling your local dealer

    According to Kinze's website, those exhaust pipes were made by them and are no longer being made. They do have the blueprints available to download on their website and you can have a shop fabricate the pipe for you. Here is the link: www.kinze.com/resources/re-power/

      @iowANFarmer yes a seal kit for the filter housing. Autozone has the kit. It is Dorman part number 904-124. A little over 20 bucks. I put one in my LBZ a couple weeks ago.

    • iowANFarmer

      Not the fuel filter housing?

    To fix the exhaust pipe, get a exhaust elbow of the same pipe diameter, cut the blown out portion of the old pipe, use the cut out as a template and trace onto new elbow with consideration for material removed, make a patch and then weld onto the existing pipe on the tractor. Did this to our 9200 this summer. Takes about an hour to do.

    Dad had a really close call I know there's nothing you can do when something like that happens I wonder if there's some kind of a bracket that you can put underneath the tractor so that that doesn't happen again for the driveshaft exploding like that and you got good videos keep up the content thank you also for explaining things out for the good and the bad of farming

    What year is your Duramax? You can change out the seals on the primer cap for a quick fix. I would get an entirely new fuel filter assembly. Around $150 at the dealer. 2 bolts 2 hose clamps and then no more problems. The seals get worn as well as the cap on the inside.

      Try dieselfiltersonline.com Might have that after market for about $130

    • justin whitley
      justin whitley

      @Farm Hand Crop Adjuster we are on these things all the time every day Matter of fact its actually scary what they will get on think about this the grain cart was behind the tractor was angled towards the ditch so therfore it makes the tractor even wider on stability if it was in the ditch even withe ditch it would be easier to flip because now it has less width and less stability might not be the best row cropper but I am very accustomed to hills steep ground and rocks we farm it for a living the joke around here you live at the top of the hill the side of the hill or the bottom of the hill 😀

    • iowANFarmer

      I agree the cart stabilized the tractor. If the cart made it to the ditch. I would have all gone.

    • Farm Hand Crop Adjuster
      Farm Hand Crop Adjuster

      @justin whitley that’s the difference is running in a field at low speeds and road travel and road speeds. A tractor running 20 mph pulling (what I’m estimating) a 10,000 lb grain cart and loosing steering is a recipe for disaster so no it wouldn’t have taken much to make that tractor roll. A little steeper ditch, the tractor making a sudden turn, hitting a hole in the ditch, an inexperienced operator or the grain cart falling in the ditch at those speeds it would have pulled the tractor over if it started to tip.

    • justin whitley
      justin whitley

      It wouldn't have rolled it could have took a whole lot more his tractor is wider then mine and has dront duals and i get on 50 degree hills cutting pastures

  • mechanicmike

    I would check Napa, see if you could buy a elbow to fix exhaust, or weld a temporary patch on it.

    • iowANFarmer

      Thanks for the tip!
