    Unknowingly, I think you made my point.

    Yes and no.

    Regardless of brand, I agree to a point.I try to support my local businesses, including tractor shop(I do not have a local NH dealer, in my case; even my old kubota, the dealer was an hour away). The factories do design components, to work specific to their machines and models.

    At the same time, I'd bet a lot of folks do not get genuine Ford/Toyota/Chevy/etc filters, oil, spark plugs, plug wires, power steering fluid, etc directly from their Ford/Toyota/Chevy/etc dealer. Same deal; lot higher prices for all the above. Good quality, and easier to claim for warranty. But more expensive.

    Most folks I know that work on their own car/pickup, got to NAPA/Oreilly/Autozone/etc, even though their Ford/Toyota/Chevy/etc may be a block away.

    So what is the difference for tractors?

To me it's not worth the few bucks you will save by not buying OEM filters and SUDT for your machine. I spent a lot of money on my tractor and its just not worth it to put non Kubota filters on it. Penny wise and pound foolish!

    Interesting. I'm always looking to save a buck. So I just compared the specs of SUDT2 to AMSOIL. Because I believe my power steering problem is somehow related to the hydraulic fluid over-heating, the spec in which I'm most interested is the Viscosity @ 100 degees C, cSt. The SUDT2 is rated at 8.1. The AMSOIL is 9.8. Higher is better. I doubt the SUDT2 would work for me. Too bad. It would have saved me money. But I'm glad it works for you.

    I haven't looked into it, but I would assume the Amsoil is less expensive. That's what I like about it - very high quality oils that can be had for very reasonable prices if you get set up properly through Amsoil.

    When I stated the SUDT2 would work better, I was referring to the SUDT2 vs the SUDT. I should pretty much be a wash between the SUDT2 and the Amsoil.

    one thing i cant stress enough is a product from stanadyne called performance formula, this is by far one of the best fuel additives on the market. i have used it for years with great results, a clean and well lubricated fuel system is really important. GM used to make us poor a bottle in the tank or the warranty on the injection pump was void. it is not as popular are some other brands but it has saved the life of many injection pumps and injectors.

    I'll set my sights higher by making and saving dollars. You can keep grovelling around looking for pennies and wonder why other people have bucks.

    Question for you. Will this stuff also prevent fuel gelling in the winter? Where can you buy it? Thanks.

    Look at the research on lubrication / gelling additives.

The hydro whine is louder, the steering whines at full clock, and it stinks when it gets good and hot. Just like on the B3030, I expect when I do change over to full synthetic hydro fluid, all those issues will correct themselves.
    Bandit, how many hours do you now have on the new B3000? I'm curious to see how the SUDT2 works in the B3000. Thanks, Stanley
