Re: Selling BX turfs but where and how much?

Hijacking is fine with me!
When I went to R4s I talked directly to the parts counter as opposed to the sales guy. I'm guessing whole goods is what I got as a previous conversation with a "sales...

Re: Selling BX turfs but where and how much?

Thanks 200, that's a good place to start.

As for the other questions, it's both wheels and tires.

Selling BX turfs but where and how much?

My BX2680 came with turfs. After a year and 90 hours they weren't doing what I needed so I bought R4s and that solved my issues.
I hung on to the turfs through the winter in case the R4s couldn't...

Re: Zero Turn Mowers?

That's pretty much where I'm at. Agreed, not as much fun but safer so I'll stick with using the BX with R4s. Slow but stable.

Re: Is a 3rd function worth the expense?

With that many votes for the 3rd function, I'm sold; just need to scrounge up the funds so I can move forward on it.

Anybody want to buy a magazine subscription?

Thanks for the advice everyone.

Re: Zero Turn Mowers?

On the worst one the inclinometer says 40 degrees, others in the 30-35 range.

Is a 3rd function worth the expense?

Very soon I'll be adding rear remotes for a hydraulic top link, BX2680. I asked the dealer about a price for that kit and also a price for the 3rd function kit as I plan to add a grapple later in...

Re: Zero Turn Mowers?

Just my 2 cents;

I'd love to have a zero turn but have been warned by countless people that it wouldn't work very well with the hills that I have. If your property is fairly flat, go for it but...

Re: Edge Tamer bucket attachment

I have them too, they've worked well for me. We don't get a ton of snow but when we get enough, the edge tamers do a great job of not gouging my gravel/dirt driveway. No complaints at all.

Re: When does the relief come into play?

All three wheels acted normally so I think I'm good :)

Thanks again Wolfman, I've been scared straight. I had it out for about 20 minutes pushing brush into the burn pile and everything seems to...

Re: BX2380 Pallet forks

I bought the 46" ones for around $300. They've worked very well on my BX2680 and lift more than I'm supposed too. They're not adjustable but that's not an issue for what I do.

Thanks Wolfman, lesson learned and hopefully not an expensive one. I'll be looking for leaks and anything weird going on when I use it tomorrow. Anything I should specifically be looking for damage...

When does the relief come into play?

How and when does the relief valve work? Here's why;

I've got a BX2680 and a pallet of rock weighing at least 1000 pounds, most likely more. A while back for fun, I tried to pick it up and the...

Re: BX Snow Cab

Ping, a great design and beautiful outcome!

I had to say hi as well... I was born in Piqua and don't see that or Troy mentioned very often. Cheers!

Re: best option for BX24 turf tires

I bought my BX2680 with turfs and they are great if there's no water anywhere. As we get a fair amount of rain, soggy ground=no traction so I bought a set of R4s and am completely happy; good on the...

Yep, got it on my BX2680. Easy on and off and the fan still has all its blades.

Thanks RCW, that's what I was looking for.

I'm actually looking forward to the next snow now! Eh, that'll probably change though.

Re: R4 with chains vs turf.. worth it?

So along the lines of keeping them tight... Being a newbie having never used chains before, I see people use bungie cords on the outside to keep them tight which makes sense. My question is do you...

Re: R4 with chains vs turf.. worth it?

Thanks all for the tips and advice, I'll give it a try. I have no pavement of any type, just dirt gravel and farm field so I'll just stay away from the parts I mow in the summer.

Thanks Ed, I forgot to mention the rears are loaded. Just trying to figure out if the expenditure is worth it so I ran sell the turfs.

R4 with chains vs turf.. worth it?

The scenario: BX2680 bought with turfs. They worked great when it was dry out but I had big traction issues when it was wet out so I bought R4s. Traction problem solved and no damage when mowing.

Re: Back Blade Plowing
