    Loader BX2380 Quad Hydraulic FEL disconnect leaking?

    Are those still quick connect? I mean can you pop each of the 4 off or do you have to unscrew each line to take off and put on the loader? I'm back for the 3rd time at the dealer now. Very frustrated. I've been through 5 gallons of hydraulic fluid now at $70 each 2.5 gallon jug. My dealer...

    Wood pellet BBQ smokers such as Traeger ?

    Must have put these on another thread. Smoked meat loaf. Best meat loaf I've ever had by a long shot. Instead of ketchup, I glazed at the end with an apricot amaretto mix. Sauteed onions and minced garlic for a little bit before putting the mix together. Sausage, ground beef, sweet bell...

    Yet another new SCUT question

    I mow with my BX with the loader and attachments off. I have real wheels filled. Mows great. 4X4 high on the hills. When on this side hill and a little steeper place I feel nervous, but I can sit in the seat and rock toward the down hill with no lifting of uphill tires at all. You can drive...

    2018 Diesel Trucks - 3/4 or 1 ton - favorites and why

    With 2018 year models very mature and 2019's right around the corner, I wanted to get the most current opinions from owners of why they picked the brand they did and if they are happy with their decision or not. I'm once again considering finally buying a new truck, really want a diesel, and am...

    Help needed - Spraying advice 101 - Lawncare

    I've read some other threads on the subject and there is a lot of info already out there, but I am very green in this area and it's a lot of confusion to me right now. I just bought a Fimco 40 gal sprayer and some 24D Amine on the advice of the Tractor Supply worker. As usual, I sprayed and...

    Rear remotes troubleshooting question - BX 2380

    Finally went and picked up my parts to use the hydraulic top-link. I added the rear remote option when I bought the tractor, but haven't had a chance to use it or even finish setting it up yet. Had trouble finding the right male adapters to match, but we got all that resolved and hoses made up...

    What are good concealed carry choices for women?

    Don't want to get too much into the back story, but recently a family member of mine got in a sketchy situation after dark at a business located in a rough area. I am thinking of helping her get signed up for a CCW class and wanted to know opinions of what would be a good carry choice for a...

    Need help - emptying pond

    After several years of having a pond, I'm now wanting to fill it in and put it back the way it was. My younger neighbors in the "hood" are having more children and they like to play and roam (which I am perfectly fine with) and I'm just afraid that one day, one of the kids could slip or drown...

    Grapple for BX23S

    To the OP's question: I have the same loader as you and Old Red. As Travis mentioned, you can't get the SSQA in the 48" Landpride, you'd have to get their 54". I had the Landpride 48" on my BX2370, but it did not have SSQA, so when I traded to the BX2380, I also had to go one size up with the...

    South west PA and steep hills with a SCUT?

    Don't know why my picture didn't work. Will try again. Also, to your question about the hydrostat on a SCUT vs lawn tractor, there is literally no comparison. Two completely different worlds.

    Grappling fun - A Picture Thread....

    Tested the limits of my new tractor and grapple last week and especially on Saturday. As I approached a few of these logs, a thought occurred to me about measurements and strength of loader always rated max at pins, so a few that I couldn't scoop up with grapple extended, I actually grabbed...

    No action photos yet but I ran it last night for about 3 hours. Landpride SGC 0554. I like it better than the SGC0548 that it replaced so far.

    Traded up - BX2380

    After reading the other thread and watching a bunch of youtube videos since the 80 series was announced, I pulled a John Thomas and traded my 2370 on a 2380. I actually took mine in for service, and had to reconfigure it and switch some stuff out because I needed my grapple worked on too and...

    Buying Advice Deciding on a Kubota BX2680

    I have a quick hitch for mine and like the ease of switching implements around. I had the Pat's easy change on my last tractor and liked it as well. I like the quick hitch better and the LP on is about $170 if I remember right. Also, Triple R mentioned the Mike Hodge kit for the extendable...

    Who rides motorcycles?

    My first bike was a Yamaha 400 Special II. Actually my very first vehicle. Next bike was a Honda Silverwing GL500. Then had a Honda Magna 750. And a Rokon if you count that; hahaha. My new ride is very different for me, but I love it the most so far I think. Went the direction of dual...

    Grapple quit grappling ;-(

    I was using the grapple extensively last Sunday and it just stopped closing and opening all at once. It's stuck in the mostly open position. My quick guess is this is probably a simple electrical issue of sorts, but I haven't had a chance to do any troubleshooting at all. My curl and lift...

    Flying a Helicopter?

    Commonly referred to as "chaff". We had it on our HH-60H's. That's the Navy Combat search and rescue configuration of the Seahawks. A SEAL team worked with our squadron from time to time and that was what they would fly in with door guns, etc. We also had SH-60F's, which were set up for more...

    I figured out why I hate tv

    Slash Pine, couldn't agree more. Most television is just plain too stupid to watch and makes me think less of society in general for them watching it. I'm like Sawyer Rob, I record my shows then fast forward through commercials. PJ, That Fishbone is sweet. I'm currently hooked on Ibanez'...

    What fuel mileage do you get in your 3/4 or 1 ton diesel? Which brand is best?

    Towing or normal driving? I'm looking at all 3 and trying to be as open minded as possible. Late model comparisons will be best and also those who live in foothill/rolling hill areas. Not my #1 priority, but am curious. Want to educate myself and your experience may help my final decision...

    Garden Problems

    Strange year this year. I planted my garden on April 9th. Weather has been nice, but not a ton of rain. I have watered it a couple times in the meantime, but apparently not enough. Had one good rain at about a week and a half after planting otherwise. Usually by 2 weeks it seems all is...

    Mowing Nervous about mowing this hill with my new BX1870

    This is about the steepest spot I side-hill mow. I need to measure it over the width of the tractor one of these days to accurately report on it. I can still comfortably turn up or down in this spot. While sitting on the tractor, I have stopped in this spot and wiggled my weight back and...

    Need help on Right Tractor For a Grapple.

    Some great advice and options out there. I think a 30-40 HP machine for your property would be plenty. Based on the photos of what you want to clear up, you could even get by with a SCUT in a pinch, but I'd be also thinking about what else you want to do with the tractor once you clear up the...

    Kubota running a special on mower blades

    Just wanted to pass along to others that Kubota is running a special on new MMM blades. $18 each. This is cheaper than I could buy the blades for my old lawn tractor. Picked my brother up a set too while I was there. If you need new blades or want a spare, now is a good time.

    Strange Grapple Behavior - Question on Hooking Up

    When I brought my baby home, the grapple had already been installed and was working perfectly. I used it a bit, then removed it. A couple weeks later, I put it back on, and it didn't open and close right away. I thought this was strange and was going to call my dealer, but after about 10-15...

    Grapple Landpride SGC0660 Grapple

    To the OP, I have the LP SGC 0548. Not as big as the one you're looking at, but it is on a BX. I'm no grapple expert and have not used or seen the EA version in person, but I can say this grapple has performed very well for me on my tractor. I can grab a lot of brush into one bite or grab...

    Utra low sulfur VS High sulfur dyed ?

    This is still confusing to me as well. Local stations can't seem to tell me that their dyed fuel is ULSD. Their pumps have stickers as follows: As a result, I'm still buying on road diesel.

    Grappling fun - A Picture Thread....

    Couple more pics of it. One, I had just broke off the top 3rd of a downed oak tree and 2 snakes were nestled in the rotten part. I actually didn't notice one of them until I was tugging at that part with the grapple and had pinched it against the tree and it was trying to bite the grapple itself.

    Virginia Garage and House - Let the process begin.

    Difficult lot - mower suggestions?

    BX-2370 is what I'm currently using. Much more stable than my old lawn tractor. I can do complete 360 turn on this slope. Don't have to lean uphill. Have rear wheels filled. Have some steeper stuff than this at my other property that I mow. Will take photos one day if I think about it.

    Flat tire question

    Have a flat front R4 on my new BX. Went to shop last night and it was deflated. Must be some kind of slow leak. Filled it back up and listened for any noise, but no hissing. I have inspected the tire as good as I can without removing the wheel and cannot find a puncture or anything obvious...

    Initial thoughts on new BX-2370

    I took delivery of my new BX-2370-1 last Thursday. It replaces my L3800. I sold the L3800 a couple months ago because my dealer told me I'd get more out of a private sale than he could give me in trade. He was correct. I had got a lot of big stuff done with the L3800 and absolutely loved...

    Loader Any BX owners with a Grapple? Thoughts?

    I'm about to buy a BX2370 and while chatting with my dealer, he has 3 grapples on the lot and said he'd sell me one for $1,600 with my tractor. I believe he said it was a Landpride grapple, but I haven't looked at them yet because the attachments are in a different lot than the tractors and I...

    Thinking of downsizing L3800 to BX2370

    I feel like John Thomas. :laughing: I've had my L3800 for 2.5 years now and have done most of the major stuff that I've wanted to do. It only has 160 hrs on it. I put 50 hrs on it in the first 6 months, then 100 hours in the next two years. I'll be using it for some box blade work this...
