A few weeks back after loading trucks with winter wheat our John Deere 844 wheel loader had a catastrophic failure of all hydraulic pumps after a drive line universal exploded. It took some time but once parts were tracked down and professionally rebuilt, Leg Arms was able to work his magic and get this machine back in action!

  • At least y'all's got the end crimping machine!! I remember doing those with a hydraulic jack!!

  • Is that universal joint supposed to break at some point or why did it happen ? I'd say very bad construction if the universal joint is close to the pumps and it/when it fails it brakes everything on its way.

  • I am sure you have winter 2020-2021 full with the Wagner and hopefully the Moline. Maybe for winter 2021-2022 you folks can refurbish this loader and repaint it. Maybe paint it white and call it Big John. I love watching you guys doing this stuff.

  • Late to the party but it looks like there may be enough room around the pumps to put a guard around the u-joint to prevent destroying the pumps in the future. Solid but similar to a pto shaft guard but mounted to the casing.

  • I have been watching this channel for quite awhile now and what really amazes me is how well everyone works together. I am jealous about how well the kids works with their father. I never had this kind of relationship with my dad. It is so awesome to see.

  • You guys need a vacuum valve on the top of the hydraulic tank so you don't have to drain it just to work on the suction line.

  • Iv enjoyed all your videos that iv watched. I worked for a John Deere dealership for 22 years never got to work on one of the old 844 did all the classes that they had Heard horror stories of how they were to work on and LegArms did good for not ever working on one. Great job. GW

  • This is the second time that you had the cab tilted on the JD pay loader. What was wrong the first time? Keep up the videos Leg Arms & Robert. Too bad on that leak! Hello from NE Montana.

    • First was seeing the broken parts. Second was putting in the parts.

  • The more you repair, the more you learn, the more you learn the more tricks you can apply, the more tricks you can apply the more complex things you can repair. The more complex things you attempt, the more frustrating things you run into. But, if you look back and think about what you would not have attempted to do only a few years ago that are now routine, the less frustrated you feel. Nice complex fix Leg Arms.

  • What farmer do - rebuild - reuse everything. My later step - Grandfather was born in late 1800's. (passed 1973) Built a 'tractor' out of a truck parts. Used to move hay and lots of small things around the farm. The family has pictures of him using horses / steam and 'modern' tractors. I learned a lot from him about reusing items. RIP Gramps.

  • Happy New Years Welkers. I actually have done some electrical work in Shelby in the 80"s. We did a lighting project on the Airport and did the electrical on a new church that was being built. What I remember about the church was the ceiling lights were installed above some ceiling fans, it had a bit of a strobe effect so we moved some of the ceiling lights. Have a great 2020.

  • I think you and leg arms should definitely kind of have your own shows(own the same channel of coarse), maybe different days of the week? Not always though I love them together to I was sjust thinking when or if you guys have to do different jobs. I also love any input form you father he is a wide man. I didn't have a dad ever( not looking for sympathy) it just make sme happy seeing how great he is and how great you to kids are as well it honestly makes me happy and so joyful seeing kids have what I didn't. It gives me quite a bit of hope for this county and lifts my sports everytime. I was lucky enough to have the most amazing grandfather to fill the the gap still not quitete the same, but wouldn't have changed it for the world.sobwoth that being said I absolutely love your dad's Bob Chanel's he reminds me so much of my grandfather and his jokes and the hidden wisdom in them. You have of the best channels imo because you have the American dream with the true American family. I have a very small farm myself just enough for some draft hores and some beef cattle for our family, my dream is to have a hay and crop farm with just a small amount for head so I never get to bored in MN winters. I watch your family's channels and MN farmers and a few others like northern. Farmer I like his wisdom to. And white a few small ones to many to list.

  • Just an Observation , The 59 thumbs down , why ? , These guys aren't afraid to get they're hands dirty , save money and learn , Most people live in the throw away age , want NEW, NEW , NEW ! Machinery can last for Years if taken care of , YES they break , yes they cost Money to fix , But the money they save to get the job done Does not compare, to what it would cost to have someone do it , to Rent or otherwise ! Just wondering why the thumbs down ?
