    Re: TODAYS SEAT TIME

    I knew he'd show up with his telehandler. If his tree ain't big enough, he can just extend the boom about 20 feet more.

    Re: cutting grass in "top" position BX

    I mow our hill every fall for the neighborhood kids to use for sledding. I make a pass with the deck almost at the top, then turn around and make another pass a little lower. For this, I'm not...

    Mowing Re: Side Hill mowing . . . favored angle ??

    Not sure if the right-side-look came first or if the left-side clutch, but it is a lot easier to turn right if you need your foot on the clutch (like hooking up implements).
  92. Re: Anybody blown or bent their curl cylinder(s), and how?

    You are correct in that I'm not in any danger. I'm a lift and roll from the side guy. I just cringe at the thought of scaping the bucket across the concrete, both the noise and abuse.

  94. Re: Anybody blown or bent their curl cylinder(s), and how?

    That's pretty much why I started this thread. The rig in question would be better no doubt, but this was supposed to be an improvement to how he was doing it before, which was a bare edge to scrape...

  96. Anybody blown or bent their curl cylinder(s), and how?

    There is a Facebook Kubota group. One member posted a rig made from 2x4s that he uses to skid his BX25 forward on the bucket edge, over the mmm rather than slide it in on the dolly wheels from the...

    Re: After one year....

    I've had my BX for 5 1/2 years. 591 hours on it when I got it, 890 hours now.

    The hours don't climb so fast when it can do the work in 1/2 the time the previous (lawn) tractor did. :-)

    Re: PTO possible Issue

    Ballast Re: Question About Tractor Weights

    The point is that loading rear tires does not *MOVE* any weight backwards. In order to move weight backwards, the result would be LESS weight on the front axle. Loading rear tires does not remove any...
