    I believe (if my memory is right) that the EPA made deletes illegal when DPF came out around 2012. Anything older could have the delete done.

    Tires for 2016 Kubota BX25D

    Make sure you ask for 'Whole Goods" pricing. The salesman at my dealer had NO clue, I had to insist before he would even look. Not my place to teach a salesman how to do his job.

    Several contractors near me told me to get white oak boards and after a year pour used engine oil on them, then wait a week before using. Local sawmill said the same thing and claimed I'd be looking at years and years of use before I'd need to think about replacement.

    Would a zero turn be faster than a B2601?

    ZTR has a much lower ROPS. Possibly because it's lower ti the ground?

    And yet another log splitter build

    I found this Wolf style wood splitter build - . This Polish guy is an amazing fabricator. The only problem is that it's visual only, with only a few closed captions. Watch for everything he makes:

    Rear Blade Adjustment Preferences

    bgr, In your 7th paragraph ‘If you have gauge wheels’ you solved my biggest headache, I fight speed bumps every spring. With my back blade, every time the front tires go over the top of the ridge the blade lifts up creating a new ridge. The gauge wheels will shave the tops and fill the valleys...

    A little bit of info about the loader, I tried to put a 3rd function kit from Summit, on my LA344 loader. Kubota increased the size of the torque tube to 3 1/4" so I had to buy a U-bolt from a muffler shop.

    Building a custom home - HVAC options - could use a bit of help please!

    One reason for a gas backup is it can be run on a small gen set when power fails. I guess it depends on how much you trust the power company to quickly restore power in the winter. My 8kw gen set can run my gas furnaces, condensing gas water heater, LED TV, lights (all LED), and our fridge and...

    Stability question-wheel spacers

    Stability question-wheel spacers

    I put 2" spacers on my BX2370. Before when I mowed my side hills with the belly mower I had to do it on a diagonal and a few times I felt a wheel lift.

    Rear remotes/hydraulics on BX25

    If you go with FitRite and you think you might want to put a 3rd function on the loader, talk to Brian and let him know he might be able to save you some money if you use his kit.

    And yet another log splitter build

    Get a hold of Brian from FitRite Hydraulics. He's a sponsor and if he can't set you up with a flow restrictor he might tell you where to get one. A lot of people here have used him for top n tilt kits for the 3 pt hitch. There's not much about hydraulics that he doesn't know.

    Building a custom home - HVAC options - could use a bit of help please!

    I'd like to add to what Milkman 636 said. About 4 years ago we put in new HVAC systems in the house (Carrier) and when I brought up installing electro static air cleaners the dealer (Crystal City Heating) asked me why? He told me about a UV air purification option that kills viruses and sold for...

    Building a custom home - HVAC options - could use a bit of help please!

    What ever system you decide on remember that energy costs NEVER go down and this is a lo-o-o-ng term investment. Over the years you can (will) replace the equipment for a reasionable cost. The equipment is designed to be replaced, if there is access and space to do so. On the other side of the...

    Yes, I would but the lower pitch will only help when we had to wash out the acorn hulls the squirrels left us. The lower pitch lets the slower water speed float things out.

    Under Decking Roofing Concerns

    ~50 years ago my Dad had the same problem. 16 X 40 foot deck with 2X8X8 joists supported in the middle, we attached 1X3X8' stringers starting 2" down at the house side and ended at the far side ~3 from the end of the deck, which is too steep. We should have made it the same pitch as waste water...

    PTO chipper

    I've never had my own chipper, so I'm new to this stuff. Don't you have to remove the blades to sharpen them? If you remove the blades, how do you know what gap to leave? I guess I'll find out.

    PTO chipper

    I will definitely keep an eye on the edge. I don't have any idea at this time how big of a PITA it will be to adjust the clearance though. I watched a video on an arborist web site that claimed a 39 degree angle on the blades was better and lasted longer. Any body have any experience with this?

    I hope so too. Either way I'll let every one know. I'd seen stuff about the Farmers Helper chipper and was going to get that one. But I'm slow to spend that much money with out a lot of research (about a year), then found this. Took a lot of searching to find reviews, seemed like more were...

    I took a 1/4" drive tall (long) thin wall socket and cut a groove in one side as wide as one face in the socket. your only tightening to a few foot pounds so the socket stayed good.
