    electrical relays

    umm…what’s this? Amazon.com: Electronic Specialties 190 Relay Buddy Automotive Relay Tester : Tools & Home Improvement We could certainly debate the usefulness of the relay tester linked above, but to say they don’t exist or they’re a con is wrong. There are many others out there that work as...

    Rim guard or not? Why a ballast box instead of boxblade?

    I certainly agree that keeping the weight low increases stability. But saying stability is the same so long as the weight is centered is wrong. What you‘re saying is true so long as the tractor is not moving. When you aren’t moving, static stability is all that matters and how widely a mass...

    electrical relays

    I don’t understand the comments about 3 pin relays being rare. They’re quite common. They’re all over the place. Just Google it. Flasher relays, horn relays, etc. Used all over the place in automotive, industrial, electronics, appliances, etc. In the general case, a three pin relay is just...

    Rim guard or not? Why a ballast box instead of boxblade?

    The primary purpose of ballast is to increase lateral stability. (prevent sideways tipping i.e. roll over). Tractors have a high center of gravity to start with and it’s only worse with a loader. Rear ballast (filled tires and/or three point weights) accomplish this by keeping the rear tires...

    How soon is soon enough for Super UDT2 in Front Axle ?

    In my experience, ballast recommendations from manufacturers have nothing to do with front axle loading and everything to do with liability from tipping and roll over. That’s why they recommend either three point ballast or loaded tires. There are dealers who won’t sell a loader without three...

    How can I be sure the check will be good?

    It is illegal in all 50 states and all US territories for a bank to refuse payment on legally presented certified check drawn on that institution. Doing so would violate banking laws that comprise the Uniform Commercial Code. The only way a bank can cancel a certified check is for the person...

    What causes this? Tandem trailer shackles flipping

    Without knowing length of the equalizer bar, the length of the shackles, or the height of the equalizer (vertical from center bolt down to the two outer holes when it‘s level) you can’t say with 100% certainty that the spacing is correct. Also need to know if the relative height of the frame...

    Sub-Compact/Compact Recommendations

    I have both a BX2230 and a B3200 Kubota. Both have 60” belly mowers. If your use will be 80-90% mowing, I’d go with the BX. The cut quality is largely the same, but my B3200 front tires and overall weight are very hard on a finished lawn. I have to limit turn radius or front tires really...

    Mowing in reverse with SCUT and MMM

    I have many obstacles in the yard that I have to mow between and back up from. This would be a deal breaker for me. Will never own something with this feature again. I disabled it on a Cub Cadet lawn tractor I had 16 years ago, but I inherited that when it was already 10 years old. I sure as...

    Solenoid Valve Schematics - what does this mean?

    Does anyone know what this schematic means and can you explain it to me? I'm adding a couple of proportional solenoid valves to the Bota and am having some trouble understanding this valve position schematic. I've never seen transition or crossover blocks showing metered flow paths during valve...

    Loader B3200 Loader mounting bolt torque

    Does anyone know the correct torque for the various bolts used on the LA504 loader frame? A snap shot of the relevant pages from owners manual would be great. Why? I'm the proud new owner of a B3200 with a loader, front snow blower, mmm, and pallet forks. It's a 2014 with only 61 hours on it...

    WSM Wiring Diagram wire size

    Does anybody know if the number next to the wire color on the wiring diagram in the WSM is the wire size? If it is, what is the correct way to interpret it? Attached is an example from the B3200 WSM for the ignition switch. The two wires with 2 next to the color are 0.101 inch diameter and...

    B3200 Engine Torque?

    Looking at a used B3200 and wanted to know if anyone knows/has/can find the rated engine torque for the B3200? I'm trying to decide if the extra vibration of the 4 cyl V1505 is worth the power or if I should keep looking for a used B2650. Would probably prefer the B2650, but in the used...

    Pour foundation without forms

    Accidentally posted this in regional forum, but meant to post here, so I reposted. Anybody ever poured a foundation without forms? Not just the footing. The entire footing and wall without forms. Free pour directly in the trench. Getting ready to build small barn (20x24) for equipment storage...

    Snow 2750 snow blower shaft length

    Just picked up a used bx2750 snowblower. The sub frame is set up for a bx25 with the longer drive line shaft (pn 70060-02728) mounted in the sub frame bearings. I need the shorter shaft (pn 70001-00772) to mount this on my bx2230, so the question is... Is it possible to cut the spline end of...
