    Absolutely. I would consider refilling with break-in oil.

    What we need is more idiot control.

    I asked my dealer about this issue when I bought my kubota & he said to do maintenance only when the hours called for it.

    If its too early for synthetic, what oil to use now to complete the brake-in period?

    I was going to switch it to Amsoil, at what hours would be recommended to switch to synthetic oil (when break-in is done)?

    I really, really wish I could use it more. I absolutely love spending time with it, just my work is not as much as I tough.
    To be honest I bought the tractor mainly because my father in law bought a new BX and I helped him with few chores and fell in love working with a tractor.

    I do start and use mine every month for 30 minutes or so, it is not just sitting. I wish I had more things to do with it.

    The 3700SU really gets everything done very fast. Cleaning my 200 foot driveway takes less than 15 minutes with the loader mounted 8 foot snow plow. Clearing 3-4 acres of bush takes half an hour at the most with 72" bush hog.

    My son already knows, what his first tractor is going to look like.
    At the rate I am using it, I am sure I will keep it for 20 or more years.

    Use the oil the manual says to use- or what the dealer says (if it matches the manual!). People are people and throw in their opinions. Manuals have the company behind them- design specs!

    I tend to agree. I have always relied on my manual and my dealer. I have had positive results by following this game plan, except for one time. I bought some fuel additive that the parts person suggested. I still have the full 8 ounce bottle. I need to take it back. I just keep forgetting to. After reading the posts here on TBN regarding diesel fuel additives, I chose another fuel additive.

    Wow! I thought I wasn't using mine enough because I only put 10 hours on it in the last 3 months! I don't feel so bad now.
