    I replaced all 3 lines from the rear end to under the engine due to corrosion. Price on that was somewhere around $90 two years ago with tax, maybe closer to $75.

    Re: BX 1860 Stability?

    I don't have a BX 1860, I have a BX 2230, but I believe the tires would be the same. Mine are filled with washer fluid. Beet juice is much heavier. I figure I added 90 lbs to each tire by doing so....

    Re: Kubota Dealer

    A very good add at that. Most of our car dealer garages here now have separate service lanes or even buildings for easy stuff like oil changes. That helps cut down on the rubber neckers that get...

    Re: Do you hate your tractor

    I've counted at least 3 threads Fred has started and I believe the titles are something like:

  95. Re: newer bx not stopping when reverse pedal released

    I guess I must be weird. Since this pedal rocks the full range from forward to backward, I don't remove my foot until the tractor stops. It's not like there is another pedal to go to like the JD I...

    Oil & Fuel Re: Tractor Flipped, what do I do?
