    RPM drop

    Was able to do this today, seems to have worked, I was figuring it had to do something with the cable adjustment, but the friction adjustment was an even simpler solution, thanks

    RPM drop

    Hello All, I’ve got another quick question for the forum, I have a bx23s and lately the rpm’s have been slowly dropping off while running. I warm up the machine till it registers on the white temp gauge, then when I throttle up to run, 3200 rpm’s or so it runs at that rpm’s but slowly drops...

    BX2816 snowblower fan / impeller connection

    Yep, I had to slightly bend the metal on the housing where it hit, I’ve run snowblowers for 50 plus years and never had this happen before, that shear pin should’ve prevented it, I am regretting going with the 2816 instead of the heavier duty model, I’m thinking that this 2816 is more of a...

    BX2816 snowblower fan / impeller connection

    I had the same thing happen to mine, I hit a piece of firewood that one of my dogs had been playing with and it got buried under a snowfall, anyways the shear pin went but not before one of the fan blades bent, I was able to bend it back and ran it till I got another fan unit, am going to do a...

    No start bx23s and oil leak

    So just an update, our temps finally climbed up into the 30* range and I went out to the garage to try and start my tractor up, it would turn but not fire, fuel pump sounded like it was pumping fine, fuel filter had fuel in it, rapped on the fuel pump a couple of times, then loosened up gas cap...

    No start bx23s and oil leak

    Okay, I pulled the secondary fuel filter (one closest to engine) back off and placed a pan under it, then turned key to activate pump, it sounded like it was pumping but diesel was just trickling out the end of the filter, so I added some biocide to the tank, will retry to start today. I...

    No start bx23s and oil leak

    Around 100 hrs of use, which was 11/2 year, I use the diesel fuel additive that comes in a white bottle that is similar to 911 already, is their a different additive that I need to add?

    No start bx23s and oil leak

    It appears to feel, look and smell like motor oil, yes it’s the same oil filter on right side fuel filter on left, fresh tank of winter, previous tank was summer/winter mix, old filters were dark, no noticeable crud, pump is clicking, as far as same sound that I do not know, my hearing ain’t...

    No start bx23s and oil leak

    Hello All, I am in need of some guidance on where to look or what could be wrong, I have a 2019 bx23s bought new in Nov of 2019 with 197 hrs on it, I use the white diesel additive in my diesel during the cold months. A week or so ago, I started it up to let it warm up to move some snow...

    Winter Lighting for Plowing

    I have a flashing yellow strobe with a strong magnetic mount on the bottom , it plugs into the 12 volt socket and has an inline switch, I don’t remember where I got it from though, I think it was about 50.00 or so, it’s meant for going on the top of a vehicle for construction work
