    10 hr. Service for L3901

    Thanks for your input. I got my tractor for grading (when the roads degrade with weather) on my property, moving around dirt & gravel for the area, and using the backhoe on ocassions. In total, I'll probably be operating the tractor about 100 hrs/ year, at most, unless something else comes up...

    10 hr. Service for L3901

    It did, thanks. There is a dealer in the area & said he has this - is it the same as you have?: GPOR2CR WHICH IS THE NLGI#2 RUNS 9.00 PLUS TAX FOR 1 OR 10 15 OZ CARTRIDGES RUNS $80 OR $8/CARTRIDGE. That was his reply to me & said it was the same product.

    10 hr. Service for L3901

    There is a dealer near me but appears to be an individual with a Yahoo email. What's the difference between NLGI #1 ***2? To get preferred pricing, looks like you need to join a membership. How many tubes do you go through a year? If its synthetic grease, would you still need to grease every...

    10 hr. Service for L3901

    I answered sidecarflip's comment that relates to yours. I think I'll go with the synthetic - it's worth the extra $6. Like I told sidecarflip, the dealer seemed to look down at synthetic.

    10 hr. Service for L3901

    So true. Guess I'll return what I have & replace with synthetic. It's funny, my dealer skaufs at synthetic for some reason. Their comment is "it's ok, if you want to spend the money, most people get poly". So I got poly. But, if synthetic is supieror to the others, I'll go & invest. It's...

    I'm only buying 14.5 oz. Not quite as much as what you have.

    NLGI #2 isn't clay based, it's it?

    10 hr. Service for L3901

    Good point. I'm just wondering about the cost/benefit of synthetic. If it's twice as good as polyurea then how often do you use it? Wont it impair the equipment a bit if kubota never used synthetic to begin with? They advised not to mix grease blends.

    10 hr. Service for L3901

    I couldn't find that anywhere in the store. I ended up getting LUCAS x-tra heavy duty grease rated NLGI #2. It's a Polyurea grease good for extreme heat. I asked my dealer & they said most of their customers use polyurea, but use Kubota brand. They said any brand would work well as long as...

    10 hr. Service for L3901

    I was going to do that but need to start with one type of grease first. I'd rather use a grease than can be used throughout for high temps and regular maintenance.

    50 Hour Oil Change--What Oil to Use?

    What grease can be used for 10 hour service? Is NLGI #1 OR #2 ok? The manual recommends something else but I was reading that some use multipurpose high temp grease.

    10 hr. Service for L3901

    I'm at 21 hrs on my Kubota & forgot to perform the recommended 10 hr service (off to a good start). The manual recommends using a Molybdenum grease or "Moly EP" grease. I reviewed a vid where they indicated using a high temp multipurpose grease (polyurea). The DIY site shows using a NLGI #1...

    BH77 Backhoe storage care

    Yes, it's on the dirt. Will need to pull my pallets out, thanks for the input. I didn't have much time to do much after delivered. There were 50mph gusts that day & snow the next so I switched the 2 implements since I thought I'll be using the box soon afterwards after the weather passed.
