    Do you need another copy of the manuals to download them?

    Before you buy a grapple, look at the Faver grapple. The tines are AR400 and don't have tie bars across the front. I've worked mine plenty hard in concrete as well as trees/brush, and haven't bent a tine yet.

    That would be great. I guess I need to open and copy them to a file to save them? Raynval@aol.com

    I have 2 attachments from https://skidpro.com/ They are both VERY WELL constructed. I have a high flow forestry mulcher and an 84" rock grapple.

    I just sold a rock grapple from another mfg. that was a POS. Skid pro was more than twice the money, but well worth it.

    Ask for Dick in sales.

    I have no affiliation, just a happy customer.

    Finally bought a gooseneck and can haul this thing. It's been throwing a code since I've owned it, "2950.05 , Suction Air Throttle Actuator , out of range low", I have not been able to find any info on what to do to fix it. Accelerator pedal also seems to be not working well, I usually just set the throttle with the knob. I called two local dealers, both said they would get back to me about that code and never did. This thing goes thru a lot of hydraulic fluid and I can't seem to track the leaks, although I know where the oil is leaking, drain bolt connection to the outside port. Anyway, I plan on taking it to a dealer. I'm between three dealers, Terrell, Sulphur Springs and Mckinney Tx. The one in Terrell is small and is listed for just Ag equipment, but they said they service the yellow Deeres as well. Never been to Sulphur Springs, probably 10 mins further, also does not sell yellow. The one in Mckinney is by far the biggest and deals with yellow and green Deeres, but is probably 30-45mins further away. Any recommendations?

    Thanks, I'll play around with that and see if I can figure it out. There is a huge amount of dirt in the bottom of the engine/pump compartment. I've scraped out several buckets of dirt, and many hoses/components are buried, making finding leaks very difficult. I've been hesitant to remove all the covers on the bottom and clean it out with a pressure washer. Good or bad Idea? Obviously I'd try to avoid getting close to electrical components.

    Joe's right. Power washing won't hurt it. Just don't spray the controllers on the side. There are small steel lines on the bottom and being buried in dirt, especially damp dirt, they like to rust then leak.

    I've never had good luck with ag dealers that also service the construction side. It's a bit of a drive for you, but I'd give RDO a call. Everything Deere Const, I see around here has one of their logos on it.

    Managed to find one of the problems, a broken wire on the Air throttle. Looks like the cab strut hit the harness connector and took out a wire, and scrubbed up another. Will have to solder later, but was able to connect it and was not getting the code anymore. It also almost immediately went into a cycle for the emissions, even though it's showing "low soot". It was staying at 1800 rpm, and I think I had read somewhere you shouldn't shut down if it starts, but I had to pick up a kid at daycare, so I had to shut it down after giving it 20 minutes. Never found the hydraulic leak, but got most of the dirt out of the bottom and put in a new battery. I need to spray it out good later, but was running out of time and it was cold. Might not have to take it in now, but funny you said that about RDO, because mine has a big RDO sticker on it as well. None of the Deere dealers ever did get back with me.

    Oil leaks are nature of the beast unless its streaming out. Oil is cheap. Keeps the frame from rusting.

    Get familiar and registered with jdparts.com and call your orders in or Google part numbers for online deals.

    My jd service manager won't tell me how to diagnose anything just pay him $125/hr service calls so I don't go out of my way to support them on parts.

    Try not to buy a attachment from oem dealer too much markup. Do some digging online and find your closest quality aftermarket attachment mfg. Co.

    Here it is aim or werkbrau or tag
    I've beat the tar out of a aim grapple, still works fine.

    Hi all,
    Not to butt in but this looked like a good place to start. We just got a 2014 jd 333e with 2800 hrs, we put up a home and now need to clear some acreage. quick question is there any place to get operating and service manuals as mine didn't come with anything and this is my first run with a CLT, theres a lot of buttons and switches on these things. Any help is appreciated.

    Other than new from Deere the only other place to go would eBay to see if anyone has used ones for sale.

    I haven't seen anything yet on ebay, I was hoping there was alternative to going to dealer. How about place to get parts (online)? Any recomondations?
