Hi there. I'm getting sick of helping out my parents rebuild the D-19 over and over again. I'm wondering if there's any really great value out there (brand/model) in terms of repair costs, reliability, and gas consumption. We don't need a lot of horsepower. It's just flat rowcrop and the occasional mowing. any recommendations?

You had better assess your maintenance. If you are rebuilding that much something is wrong. Some basics are: motor oil Mobil Delvac 1300 15W40, high quality oil filter, change at 100 hours or less if oil visably dirty. Might have air intake leak, letting dirt into the engine. New or clean air filters. Annual change and flush of cooling system. Thermostat?? Something is wrong with how you are treating the tractor and getting another one will not change that.

Not to avoid your question, but why are you having to rebuild? I've seen 60 yrd old tractors still run like a top that were used nearly daily.
Is there a particular failure you are having?

I've always heard of head problems with the D19. A 190 might be a good replacement, but if it's an XT, with the extra hp, make sure it has the updated rear end, instead of the original, which is the same as the D19.

Today's Featured Article - Tractors and Winter - by Staff. Unfortunately, tractors and winter don't mix well. It seems that I can start out with my tractors in great running condition but sometime during the long cold dark winter they quickly revert to the lawn-art category. The lack of running, cold weather, and admitted neglect all take their toll on a machine. If you are lucky enough to not need your tractors during the winter months you can perform a few simple maintenance items to winterize and come spring have them going by reversing the process. If you need your tractor in ready-to-run condition (like that ... [Read Article]
