    Bush Hog blades not swinging freely

    Have a bush hog brand SQ600 purchased new in 2007. When new the blades would fold up if needed and then unfurl to correct position. Last few years this has been gradually worst where they will not straighten out if they hit a limb or other object. Seems like it is getting grass and debris...

    Kubota SUDT2 in TC34Da

    Have a hydraulic fluid change coming up in the fall. Wondering if anyone has tried the SUDT2 kubota UTF in their HST Boomer. Believe this is a synthetic fluid compared to the New Holland conventional fluid. In winter time tractor can be really sluggish in cold temps until it warms up.

    Will probably be replacing the blades on my Bushhog Squealer SQ600 purchased in 2007 with the original blades having never been removed at the end of this mowing season.

    Tc34da hood seal

    Was bush-hogging yesterday and seemed like that the tractor was a little underpowered but just figured it was because the fescue was around 4 feet and very thick. While refueling today I saw that pieces of the foam hood seal had been sucked into the air intake hose and was partially clogged...

    Usually in October I change oil (Rotella 10W30) and filter, change fuel filter, change antifreeze every 2 -3years and give all the zerks a liberal shot of grease. In a normal year the hour total would average 50-60 hours since the last service in October of the prior year. This year due to our...

    Multi fuel forced air kero heater

    Purchased a Master 75,000 BTU forced air heater at Tractor Supply this week. The label states at it will burn K1 kero, JP8/Jet Fuel 6, #1&2 fuel oil and diesels.

    Have recently noticed that Kubota has released a synthetic version of the SUDT UTF. Has anyone considered running this in a non Kubota HST tractor (mine is a New Holland TC34Da).

    Testing Fleet Charge antifreeze

    Today I decided to drain the green antifreeze from my Tc34da and replace with Fleet Charge. Owners manual recommends to replace every 12 months and I have owned the tractor for 3 years but it has less than 200 hours on it so I thought now would be a good time to do it. Drained and flushed...

    Checked the fluid level a couple days ago on my TC34DA and when I unscrewed the dipstick there was a definite sound of pressure being released.

    Slow HST Pedal Return, TC34DA

    MY TC34 has 41hrs on it and I have noticed the rocker pedal seems to be creeping back to neutral instead of the rapid return it had when new. Below about 1800 rpm's it returns fairly quickly but above that it seems sluggish, especially if I have a bush hog behind it at 2500 rpm's. When the...

    Max. Time for Glow Plugs

    I own a Tz25Da that is getting difficult to start in the colder weather. On the TZ25 there is a light in the dash that stays on for 5 seconds and then goes out when you energize the glow plugs. As long as you hold the key in the glow plug position they are still energized. The New Holland manual...
