    That steel plate on the front of my BX2380 frame is just begging for a tool box.

    Any ideas on a tool box and how to attach it without interfering with raising the hood?

    What if there were no swear words

    Young Sheldon Cooper, "Cheese and crackers!!!" W. C. Fields, "Godfrey Daniel, Mother of Pearl!!!" We'd just say something that sounded like cussing.

    Looking for wrench set recommendations.

    Thanks guys! MAC would be really nice but Harbor Freight would fit my budget better. Maybe I can make up some stickers with MAC written on them and then dream. :D Thanks again!

    Looking for wrench set recommendations.

    I'm looking for a set of metric wrenches that are sort of a cross between the regular box end and open end wrenches. They're like a box end with a chunk cut out so you can slip the end over the threaded portion of a bolt or rod and move the wrench end over a nut to turn it. No idea if they...

    What type of motor oil?

    According to the BX2380 Kubota Operator's Manual (page 73) CJ=4 engine oil "cannot be used on this tractor." Kubota engine oil has a CJ-4 rating along with others. Should Kubota engine oil not be used on the BX2380?!?!?! I'm thinking the statement in the manual means that you shouldn't use an...

    What kind of filter wrenches for BX2380 50 hour maintenance?

    Well, I got the 50 hour maintenance completed. I used my big pair of channel locks to get the filters off. The engine oil filter was on really tight. I was beginning to wonder if the filter was going to come apart. Anyway, I had a couple of hours free and that kind of activity beats the heck...

    BX2380 needs to hook up 12 volt, 7.0 amp to pull behind sprayer.

    I updated my post with about the same question when you posted this. (Great minds?) Makes no sense to me either to add a relay. The two hot wires look like they're meant to provide options.

    BX2380 needs to hook up 12 volt, 7.0 amp to pull behind sprayer.

    Yep, that's what the VOM showed last night after reading more about it on this site yesterday. I saw where one guy used the switched wire to activate a relay to connect the unswitched wire to the load. - red/black-always-hot wire is a 20 amp line - red/blue-hot-with-ignition-switch is a 10 amp...

    BX2380 needs to hook up 12 volt, 7.0 amp to pull behind sprayer.

    Except that there are 2 hot wires and 1 ground.

    BX2380 needs to hook up 12 volt, 7.0 amp to pull behind sprayer.

    It appears that bullet connectors come in different sizes. Do you know if one of these sizes will fit the connectors supplied on the Kubota BX2380...

    BX2380 needs to hook up 12 volt, 7.0 amp to pull behind sprayer.

    Excellent!!! The ends of the wires were very well wrapped to the outside of a flexible plastic wiring protector with blue tape. The wires have the same colors as described in the link you provided with connectors and lead nowhere so they must, I hope, be the ones. Thank you so much!!!

    BX2380 needs to hook up 12 volt, 7.0 amp to pull behind sprayer.

    I don't see the 2 wires you referred to but the cigarette lighter outlet (not to be used for a cigarette lighter) will handle 120 watts which would be 10 amps at 12 volts. That's much better than I had thought it would handle. I could use that as a source. I'd also like to have something that...

    BX2380 needs to hook up 12 volt, 7.0 amp to pull behind sprayer.

    Please be patient with me. I'm new at this. I need some ideas on how to electrically hook up a 14 gallon sprayer built on its own trailer and provide 12 volts to the pump. Should I set up a connection from the BX2380 battery? I could use a deep cycle battery and mount it elsewhere with a...
