600HP BIG BUD NUT vs LEG ARMS|He will WIN!!!

The drawbar is what takes all the energy that is produced from the tractor and delivers it to the implement. The weakest point is where the drawbar attaches and pivots. This joint encounters a tremendous amount of force and if not lubricated properly will fail. 41 years is a good life for a part like that so hopefully we will get another 40+ when fixed! Let's watch Leg Arms (Scott Welker) work his magic and make big iron great again!

  • For goodness sakes Scott! Some of us wear headsets out of necessity. When you yell at Nick to clean up the shop, you are actually bringingin to my eardrums. Please keep us in mind when you feel the need to unload on Nick!

  • Put grease on the drill bit and the filings will stick to the drill bit, use brake clean to clean the area seal installer is the term you’re looking for. Love your comments. Order your parts (engine down) from Cummins and you will have the parts flown and you will have the parts the next day. We get small decals saying grease with an arrow pointing to the grease fittings and stick them to the tractor and people will know where to grease. Have fun my friend

  • Really fun to see, and such well edited too. I was hoping to see the part 2 where this beast gets going againn. And did you split the tractor ?, what was your decision ?

  • If you guys end up splitting the tractor do hinge pins to, we also farm in eastern Montana and we have an old Steiger Panther 3 that we have to do hinge pins on but we’ve never done it before and have no clue what we are doing, we were gonna do it last winter but like everything on a farm we got too busy for it.

  • I'm not sure if its financially worthwhile on the equipment and material aspect, but if you got a rotary table for the mill you could machine that socket out of a solid piece of steel. Ought to be stronger than the welded socket.

  • It's always fun watching you do what you do. I see others have commented as well about spinning that huge nut off. Very comical and it reminded me of a gag the Three Stooges did on one of their shorts some 60? years ago. You inspire a lot of us to think outside the box. Thank you Leg Arms!

  • Nick’s estimate of drawbar weight is low if his size estimate is not high. Every steel alloy is different, but just stick 0.283 lbs. per cubic inch into your head for general use. 👍
