    Re: Power Washer For Power Trac

    Re: 5W-10W30/40 or 15W40?

    OK, I just changed the oil in my Kubota and noticed that the Mobil 1 I had on the shelf was diesel rated and bracketed the 15w-30 that was recomended. I figured I was alright with the 0w-30. What's...

    Re: PT180 Oil Cooler

    Seems like a motorcycle cooler would be too low of capacity. If I remember right the oil flow is 8 gpm? Surplus Center has hydraulic coolers $35. You could also use a trans cooler for a truck or...

    Gator blades are made by Oregon Chain company, from what I've read they do a great job, but they are limited number of Kubota replacements.

    Re: I think I\'m in love

    I too agree with checking out the Agco & Massey. I have a BX2200 but I thought the Agco had a quieter engine. Also the blade speed on an Agco mower is really high 18,856 so it should mow really...

    Re: Bent Forks
