    Predator yay or nay

    I have a Predator 212cc 6.5hp on my dump from seat collection system I purchased used 7 years ago. I was concerned so I bought a backup new with a coupon on sale for $56.00 to keep on the shelf. The original looked tired but I use Mobil 1 and check every time I use it. The Predator has...

    What tires should you get on a new Tractor, R1, R4, or Turf?

    I agree. This comparison is not exactly apples / apples but I went from a Kubota B1700 with R4's NOT loaded to an LX1026 with R14's loaded. For a short time the LX1026 tires were not loaded (3days). In those few days I found the LX1026 to leave more turf damage than the B1700 had with the...

    I have owned my last 2 wheel drive pickup

    No we could not find a tread pattern that was simaler to say a Nokia Nordman 7. something close to this tread pattern is what i have always had and would swear by. But if the tread just looks like a summer tire I would decline. I went with them originaly due to there use in rally racing on rear...

    I have owned my last 2 wheel drive pickup

    Nokian does have very different tread pattern for heavier vehicles. A heavier one i looked at for a friend did not look like it would be good in the snow. That was for a heavy van about 5 years ago.

    What tires should you get on a new Tractor, R1, R4, or Turf?

    I will give my short amount of experience with R14's. I had a Kubota B1700 for over 20 years with r4's that were not good in the snow, so when I moved into an LX2610 I went with the standard size (not larger) R14's. Now I only have 29 hours on them but I find they are much better in the snow...

    Just bought a B2400–wanna make it right

    The line that is leaking if I remember correctly on my B1700, had issues for many and was replaced with a better made one. The leak is on the metal tube as it enters the larger metal banjo section.

    Waiting on LX2610 Rops

    Six ply makes me comfortable for loader work and snow removal. I no longer have a backhoe so super heavy weight is not a concern but turf tires were only 4 ply and I am treating myself to a grapple so i wanted at least 6 ply like my last tractor had. Most reviews say the r14's do well in snow...

    Waiting on LX2610 Rops

    Thank you That is a big load off of my mind. Going from R-4's to R-14's for traction, I did not want to give up durability. Thank you again. Now if the loader ever comes in for the tractor I will be thrilled.

    Waiting on LX2610 Rops

    I'm waiting on an LX2610 Rops with the smaller r14's. I'm trying to clarify how many ply the rear tires are. All the specs I can find say 6 but I would like to varify with someone that has received an LX2610 with the smaller r14's from the dealer. If this has already been stated i have not been...

    Should I say something

    Thank you all for the replies. I will just leave it alone with the hope that the issue was repaired and the tractor run many more years.

    Should I say something

    I do appreciate all the replies. I just hate to see someone get taken IF they are not fully informed. I hope the machine treats them well. I did my part being honest with the person I sold it to. Thank you

    Should I say something

    You are correct, I do not know if it was repaired or not. I did not buy it on anothers opinion. I bought the machine in 1999 and sold it just recently as is for parts for a good price while it was running because I did not want to put big money into the machine due to it's age, even though it...

    Should I say something

    Back story- I recently sold a Kubota (model left out purposly) "as is for parts due to a concern for metal in the transmission". The machine was running well at the moment and looked great even after 22 years of owning it. I sold the machine to company that buys equipment services and resells...

    Lx172 Runs Well for 29 minutes then stop!

    Same machine with a kawasaki engine, had the same problem and I play with small engines as a hobby. This drove me crazy. REPLACE SPARK PLUG Because spark can be seen you look no further but as it gets hotter the plug fails. Be sure to replace plug. I only did this after many other trouble...

    Sit in bathtub/shower?

    Heads up for anyone considering a walk in tub. When my late father purchased his it was very expensive but he did not care. His only gripe was the fact that to take a bath he would have to get in, close the door and start filling. Even with excellant water pressure he would freeze while WAITING...

    BX 905 engine

    Does anyone know reason why Kubota is putting a different engine in the BX 2300? The BX 23 TLB still uses the tried and true 905, the same engine that is in my B 1700 and many other applications. I'm thinking of downsizing but a brand new engine makes me think twice.

    Condition of used tractors

    When I recieved estimates on landscaping I allmost passed out, so I figured I'd do it myself. I figured I'd pick up an old Ford 8 or 9n like my father had when I was a kid and go to work, was I surprized. After realizing the ford would be to big for my property(trees), I started looking at...

    B1700 TLB to a BX2200

    I bought a B1700 TLB with the intention of landscaping my yard and then selling it. Well I like having a tractor much too much to be without one ever again. I only have one acre and after a little more work with the BH, I will mainly need it for mowing and snow removal. I have a couple of...
