    Exploding tractor battery!

    Vented Batteries produce Hydrogen when being charged/overcharged. Internal spark is highly unlikely. Be very careful when connecting/disconnecting charger. Always unplug it from AC first. Charge in a ventilated area. You were lucky.

    Kubota L4610 electrical problem (need help please)

    Both ends of the Negative (Ground) cable are equally important. REMOVE both ends and provide a bright metal to metal contact. Grease them if you wish After tightening. Visually inspect ALL wiring - lighting included. You may have a severe short circuit to kill the battery that quickly.

    Dump Trailer Questions

    Getting a load of stone delivered is much cheaper than buying, licencing and maintaining another trailer. Dig up the potholes a bit so the new aggregate can knit in properly.

    Bolt Size Help

    If you are talking about studs for the 2 empty holes, try removing the loose Stud and see if it fits. If it does take it to Kubota for a couple matches. There are internal and external thread gauges. If you are just plugging the holes, oil them and insert wine corks!
