    Kubota B2320 HST with LA 364 FEL

    Default B2*20 50 hour service

    Any B2320/2620/2920 owners performed the initial 50 hour service on their machine? I noticed that the HST filter gets changed, but the hydraulic filter is not changed until 400 hours. It was my understanding that the hyd. And HST fluid are one in the same, so why would'nt the hyd filter get changed as well? I don't think I would go bankrupt for another $5-$20 filter (not sure of price) Anybody else have any input on this? Thanks in advance.

    When I did my 2009 B3030, the dealer told me to change all filters, but not to bother with the hydraulic fluid until 3-400 hours. So that's what I did. I just topped off what I lost with SUDT2. Engine & transmission oils were changed using Messick's B instructions.
    Here's a link from Messick for the B service:

    When I look at the Messicks hyperlink you listed, it says there are two transmission filters, one on each side. I have two filters as well, but thought the one on the right(sitting in seat) was the hyd filter. Both filters look the same diameter, but slightly different lengths?

    Or is the hyd "filter" actually the strainer that they mentioned?

    my tractor is a gear tranny the strainer is not the tranny filter the filter is behind the strainer you can see it in the picture the strainer is a nut you have to take out infront of the filter right up frome the steering rod

    So the hyd filter is a strainer and not an actual spin on type filter?

    I have a B2920 with 110 hrs. At 50 hours I replaced both the HST and hydraulic filters. They are both spin-on filters but different part numbers. Hydraulic fluid and front axle fluid were completely replaced with UDT2. Cheap insurance in my opinion.

    You just dropped a ton of money on a brand new tractor. Why would you question whether or not to change a filter. Or better yet, why would you change a filter and leave the oil? Relative to the price of your investment, a COMPLETE oil and filter change is chump change - do it.

    I am only questioning the different service intervals listed in the manual and trying to determine the correct location of the filters. There are two spin on filters and a strainer mentioned. I don't see the need to replace a strainer when it can be removed and cleaned. Just looking for clarification with no relevance to $$. I am a diesel mechanic by trade, but this is my first tractor and have full intentions on doing the correct maintenance.
