    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...

    Rough Running BX

    I'm having the same problem with a bx2230, but with a complication. The BX22, 2200, 2230 & 23 all have a small second fuel tank mounted on the frame below the main tank. This small tank is fed from the main tank, feeds the fuel filter and pump, and has the return line from the engine. It also...

    hydraulic cylinder (trig-angle calculations)

    If you need to lift 8000 lbs in the bed, you do not necessarily need to generate 8000 lbs of lift at the cylinder attach point. Where the rear pivot and cylinder attach are relative to the load define the lift requirements at the cylinder attach. As several here have said, you must compute...

    Gravel Base for Asphalt

    Sorry for the long read. I'm having some trouble with my contractor and thought I'd seek some advice. I'm getting my driveway repaved. Part of it had to be removed as it was originally laid over the grass with no base (this was done before I owned the house). Got four quotes and all agreed...

    BX blew front tire! Better tire?

    Put the FEL back on the other day and started driving away and right front went flat. Found a 3/4" cut in the middle of tread. Searched, but couldn't find the culprit. The nearest Kubota dealer doesn't carry tires!!! They sent me to a local (to them) tire shop who has to order the stock OTR...

    BX24 MMM lift to top fails

    Not likely that this is a hydraulic or 3ph problem. All that annoying bouncing you mentioned just moves things out of adjustment over time. The bx24 has one less adjustment point than the MF or many other BXs. It only adjusts in the rear where it attaches to the 3PH arm. I had a similar...

    Small Cylinder Search

    I'm looking to add a separate hydraulic lift for my mmm. Not really required, but would be a nice convenience. I need a small cylinder with a 3/4 to 1 inch bore and around 2.5 to 3 inch stroke. I can't find this as a standard item anywhere. Custom built will cost too much for a convenience...

    Why is it so big on a BX?

    Getting ready for spring today. Had to clean out the spring/detent cups on the bottom of the BX LA211 loader valve. AGAIN! :mad: While I had the cover off, I was again struck by the excessive size of the Husco valve on this loader (I have valve that stays with tractor). This thing is huge for...

    Grading BX 60" mmm Gator Blade 411

    I read many posts looking for Gator blade info on BX 60" mmm and the trail always confuses me and is never definitive. I've pieced all the Gator blade info together as best I can to post in one place. First, not all Gator blades are equal. They come in standard, Mulcher, Hi-Lift, and Mulcher...

    Pump wiring for fuel station

    I started yet another project today. That brings the total active projects to just under the size of the national debt! But this one is different. It is designed to make finishing the other projects easier. I'm putting a diesel pump on one of my hho tanks to fuel the tractor. I'm REALLY...

    Ballasts / Rear weight information

    I've been running numbers for my Kubota BX to put a weight box on the rear. I was surprised by how much weight is carried on the front axle with a full loader. I think the "at least 25% on the rear axle" makes sense. You have to hang some serious weight on the 3ph to get the front axle down...

    Where's that ballast thread?

    A long time ago before I was a TBN member, I read a TBN post where someone had asked for everyone to input ideas and pictures from the ballast boxes they had created. It was the most complete thread I've ever found on the subject! Period. Trouble is, I only ever got to read it once. Have...

    Old "Vintage" Ariens Stuff

    Last fall I bought an Ariens Snow Blower that came with a Gard-N-Vac yard vacuum attachment and a shredder/mulcher attachment. They were on the side of the road with a sign for $20. I can't find any info on these attachments. Both have Ariens tags with Serial numbers, but no model numbers...

    Deere 318/400 Hydraulic pressure

    Anybody know the working pressure and flow rate for Deere 318 and 400 hydraulic valves? I've been looking for a hydraulic valve for some projects (Grapple & boom mower) and have seen many Deere 318 and 400 valves on eBay. They're nice and small and have power beyond port. And most important...

    Hydraulic pump loose!?

    Was routing wires for work lights on top of ROPS and noticed that the lower bolt on the hydraulic pump was missing. Found the bolt on the garage floor earlier this summer but never could figure out where it came from. Guess I know now! That means it's been running this way for several months...

    BX Temp Sender

    Like many BX owners, I have difficulty getting tractor to warm up in cold weather. Weather is warmer now and still doesn't appear to get very warm. I've checked, tested, changed, blessed and liberally applied voodoo black magic to the thermostat. No luck. It looks good. Now to further...

    BX MMM Top Lock questions

    I bought a used 2230 last fall and really like the tractor. I've only had one problem so far. If I adjust the mmm to level, I can't lock it in the Top position with the height adjustment. I spent some time on my back under the tractor and discovered the problem, and came to an unfortunate...
