    They called kubota and within 30 minutes Kubota sent to the dealer a fax with revised maintainance intervals and the fax intervals showed replace HST oil at 50 hrs.

    ps: and if you don't change the hst oil your warrenty is void and the Deathstar will destroy your tractor if caught in the open. jk

    I wonder if this applies to the BX2360's as well?

    This works for me on my HST B7800. Can't see the oil on the dipstick very well so it gives me a reference point.

    Kubota BX-24 - other goodies listed in my profile.

    My 'spec' volume was way over the actual amount needed on the BX24, also. Still have the containers of 'excess' I had to siphon out, to get a proper reading. Next time I'll measure the old stuff first, then refill to that amount. Good thought for the future.
    2008 BX-24 with MMM, brush hog, york rake, rear blade; handcrafted 5-tine forks; clamp-on pallet forks; bolt-on/off ripper tooth for BH bucket; Bro-Tek real wheel spacers and BH thumb; Piranha toothbar; Ratchet Rake; 3pt snowblower; extra LED lighting.

    You know, another thought is that some of the HST kubota models have a suction screen type thing that nees to be cleaned. Since it screws into the transmission case I wonder how much fluid comes out after it's removed?

    There is a big difference between a fluid system's capacity and how much it takes to refill it after a fluid change...about 3qts in your case. It helps to track the drained volume to some reasonable degree, then match that going in. Other than that, make sure you fill short quite a bit the first time you do this...then add and adjust. Record for future use...
