    Thanks for that tip...also I see some moisture on cab heater hose...where hose clamp screw rubs on hose...does not seem like much but I guess it can make a difference...seems like the "leak" would be obvious when tractor is running....even though the amount of lost antifreeze appears to be relatively small. Not easy access because the bolts that hold the side cowling on are rusted on and cannot be removed without damage... I have been soaking in rust remover for months...not freed up yet.

    Check your engine oil. Pop the radiator cap and look at the fins on the inside(if you can see them). If it looks bad, remove the thermostat and perform a block flush. Then a radiator flush by a legitimate radiator shop if need be. It can be pricy. Replace your thermostat with a brand new one.

    Any broken fan blades? Change the temp sender? Just suggestions.

    Many Thanks for your feedback...engine oil ia fine and the radiator was flushed by dealer and the fins are "clean & green" ad was said...but your radiator cap recommendation is certainly something that has NOT been done...good cheap experiment! Will do that and see what happens...the sensor is another possibility...

    By the time snow melts and I put PTO back to work, we can re-evaluated....I have backhoe on now for winter plow weight....and handling a lot of snow...and cold...no over heating issues under current conditions. Again, many thanks to all for the suggestions!

    I am buying a brush hog for my Massey Ferguson 210 it has a front end loader and is 25 hp with 22 hp at the PTO. I am inbetween buying a 4' or a 5' rotary cutter. I will be cutting mainly grass/weeds with a few small aspen (under 3/4") on flat ground. The field is roughly 7 acres and has some additional trails through the woods.. My intention is to buy a medium duty cutter something in the $1000 -$1250 dollar range. I have not picked the brand, but any suggestions would be appreciated. Currently I am looking at the Kodiak, Woods, Bush Hog, Nortrax, and King Kuttter.
    Kodiak is probably the best bang for your buck, but the bush hog has a smooth top that's easy to clean. I don't know what king kutter looks like these days.
