Re: Newbie not wanting to make a mistake...

In southern Ohio with only a 100 yd driveway you might consider a rear blade for snow plowing. It will cost less and be easier to control. A front blade will push the front of your tractor opposite...

Re: Front ballast question…

Visibility is usually not an issue for grading and the fel is useful for grading anyway. When grading the driveways and shared roads with my grader scraper, I often use the the fel for touch-up...

Re: OK - what "NOT" to do

That reminds me of a power plan operator who put on a harness and hoisted himself over a cooling tower pump pit with the overhead crane. He was washing down the pumps with a hose and wand, but...

Re: Jumpstarting

When you jump a vehicle with a dead battery, the dead battery soaks up a lot of the power. That's why you usually have to have the vehicle supplying the power running. A BX does not have a very big...

Re: Hydraulic top link vs side link

I started with a plain cylinder for a top link on my BX and had to add a throttle valve for speed control. I then had the same problem with the cylinder not holding, however I found that by closing...

Re: Hydraulic top link vs side link

I installed the Kubota BX rear remotes on my Bx2370 and have a hydraulic top link. Your biggest problem will be finding cylinders short enough to use for the top link or side link on a BX tractor. ...

Re: B2650 Snow Removal

A rear blade and your fel is a workable solution for the least cost. Go with it for this winter and make a more experienced/educated decision next year. Since you have a paved driveway you probably...

Re: Disconnecting from land pride quick hitch

Having the top link adjusted so an implement is level front to back does make it easier to drop the implement off of a quick hitch. When just the front or rear of an implement is on the ground there...

Re: BX2370 Snowblower

Most (probably all) front mount snowblowers are brand specific because there is no generic mounting system for the front of the tractor. The 3 point system on the back of the tractor provides a...

Re: Snowblower Dryer and Polebarn Heater?

I am surprised you have a problem with your snowblower icing up. Although I have a heated garage the tractor stays in the old unheated garage. I usually spend a few minutes clearing the snow out of...

Re: Snowblower Dryer and Polebarn Heater?

If you are looking at a permanent mount heater, this line of radiant heater looks good. This one is mislabeled in their ad at 4.8 kw actually it is 3.2 kw, they also have a 4.8 kw unit: ...
