    Need some reference points. What/where is a level spot on the BX23s

    I was actually going to take grid paper and map it out ft by ft with waypoints every so many feet (10-15) with elevation heights, all the way into the front woods. with the angle of the road in front of the property, I may only be able to angle 20-30 feet from the side before I start cutting...

    Need some reference points. What/where is a level spot on the BX23s

    All I know is that the dirt on the side of the house slopes down for around 5 feet and then goes back up. All that water that was up (150ft out) drains toward the house 5 feet away and then goes from the front corner of the house outward to the driveway and runs across the "t" shaped driveway...

    Need some reference points. What/where is a level spot on the BX23s

    Suffice it to say it may be hard to belive, but, I have no idea where on my property there is level spot. Maintenance kept up by a hillbilly before me has led to absolutely nothing being level, whatsoever. I have the 3 point hitch coming in this week so I am gonna mount up the box blade this...

    Kubota 23s vs Woods GB60 Box Blade. Anything I should know?

    I think I might have mixed up terminology and jumped the gun. When you say " do not have 3 pt position control ", I assumed the emplement is either all the way up or all the way down and no in between. If so, I am freaking, if it is adjustable, just no standard notching/steps (or however that...

    Kubota 23s vs Woods GB60 Box Blade. Anything I should know?

    I am sure they are nice, like cruise control, ac and a nice stereo, but, all that money to set one up? Nutty!! If anything, I need to figure how to get 3 pt position control. Thats just absolutely stupid not to have it, even on a BX!

    Kubota 23s vs Woods GB60 Box Blade. Anything I should know?

    Hi all, well, I am one lucky SOB to now be the proud owner of a Woods GB60" box blade for $200. Looks like the other guy before me got cold feet trying to lift a 500lb piece of steel and I was next up. A little sad because I didnt even do any work. There was a road cut through a 4 ft high...

    3rd function off 23s backhoe taps???

    Hey Dan, looks like you posted just before I did. So, I guess I am still on the right track. Okay, will dabble around to see whats out there. If anyone else tapped into their backhoe ports, please let me know. I need to make a list of parts. Mounting should not be too much of a problem...

    3rd function off 23s backhoe taps???

    That sounds about right and what I was thinking, which made me question why they have not made a simple valve with a handle you can reach around to the back and adjust, that attaches to the backhoe hydraulics. I think I am barking up the wrong tree with "3rd function valve" and need to look...

    3rd function off 23s backhoe taps???

    So, as some of you know, I have the Kubota 23s with backhoe. I am gonna take that off and throw on a box blade. I have been looking at the hydraulic top links, and, since I am picking up a box blade for dirt cheap (pun intended). I have plenty of money left over (assuming the box blade was...

    Something wrong with my backhoe controls??

    I thought about doing that, but then there is still heresay as to "what is he really doing with the controls?" since you cant see the actual hydraulic valve positions. Still might if I get time.

    Something wrong with my backhoe controls??

    All I know is I was trying to pick up a piece of wood with the bucket n claw, at around 2400 rpms and trying to feather my butt off to get the bucket to go 6" smoothly on the stump and stop smoothly was a nightmare, and, I was applying my slower than molassis novice moves. you know, trying to...

    Something wrong with my backhoe controls??

    " Actually, when you were feathering the valves to get smooth operation you were wasting time too. " True, but, there is a diff between my novice move of feather from my 0-10 scale, then (at least thinking) I know the controls and trying to feather from 0-3 and then blasting it out from 3.1-10...
