    Processing Firewood the Professional Redneck Way

    That is a sweet set up. I have a 4 t by 4 ft table just over waist high that I dump my cut pieces onto with the loader. I have my splitter about 2 feet away on old car ramps so it is about waist high. After dumping the pieces onto the table I position the bucket of the loader so I can split...

    Warm Up

    The operators manual for my BX says above 32F at least 5 minutes, 14F to 32F 5 to 10 minutes, -4F to 14F 10 to 15 minutes and below -4F more than 15 minutes. I try to go by that at least for the initial start up for the day and wing it from there. Alot of times I will give it a few minutes to...

    B2650 suddenly won't start

    I am not a pro at any of this but I had a similar situation with my tractor and it ended up being a bad battery. I had just started and warmed up my tractor, shut it off to refuel and then it would not re-start. Battery tested at 12.6 but would not start the tractor - lights came on, fuel pump...

    Can't remove flat tire on my BX23S

    As others have said there are different ways to do it but the newer battery powered impact wrenches are very capable and portable. I have breaker bars, pipes for extending handles and torque wrenches but the 18 volt impact gets alot of use. Try to get a brand that you can buy other tools for...

    First CUT LX2610 HSD

    I am in central NY and I really like the block heater. I had the tractor for a season before I installed the heater and it def makes a difference. An hour with the block heater on combined with the battery tender and my machine fires right up. It also helps get to operating temp quicker which...

    Greased the FEL today...

    I really need to remember to grease the tractor on warmer days or at least put the grease gun on the mantle over the woodstove before I use it on cold days. I got it done but I had to break out the old lever action gun - it sure is easier in warm weather...

    Edge Tamers on the FEL bucket

    First time using edge tamers on the FEL to clear the driveway. They really worked great. There is a learning curve for plowing vs. snowblowing but I will get it. I used a blower for the last 18 years and will use it to clean up the edges when I am done but the tractor is a lot more fun for...

    What did you do to or on your Kubota today?

    Finally got around to hooking up the tractor side permanent wiring for the trickle charger/maintainer. For $20 it'll probably pay for itself in extended battery life. Its going to be nice not having to pull/replace the battery compartment cover to hook up the charger. ⚡ :cool:

    BX1500 Hard start when cold

    I would think glow plugs also. I have a BX1500 and put a lower radiator hose heater on which helps starting in the winter in NY. I didn't have starting issues but just wanted a quicker start / warm up. Install wasn't hard and actually works better than I thought it would. I replaced the...

    How do you store your loader when off the tractor?

    I only take mine off to mow or use the lawn sweeper. I take it on and off in the garage with a level floor right where I park the tractor. When it is off I park the tractor with the front end nested into the loader so it actually looks like it is connected, sometimes I even have to check to...

    Friendly PSA - Treat Your Fuel, Cold Weather is Here

    I use the Stanadyne performance formula so I treat it year round. I am sure I don't use as much diesel as some of you do so it isn't a big deal for me. I do the same with all the gas I use for the push mower, snowblower , etc. I treat it when I fill up the fuel can.

    What did you do to or on your Kubota today?

    Its leaf season in upstate NY. Got out the lawn sweeper early this year - I am going to try to maintain it and not wait they are deep - I have 4 huge maples in the front yard. Once your get the rope pull to dump and reset you can do the whole job from the seat of the tractor. I use the...

    3 point throttle

    3 point throttle

    It controls how fast the 3pt will lower. Sometimes you might have a lot of weight on it and want it to lower slower than when it doesn't have any weight at all. It is a good idea to turn it once in a while as it has a tendency to get stuck over time if not moved. Mine locked up on my BX it...

    Household Appliance Maintenance: Share Your Successes and Failures

    When we moved into our current house in 2004 we took out the ancient fridge and ordered 2 stainless LG fridges and put them side by side and fixed the doors to open from center. We have 4 kids and love to cook. When the first one stopped working I went online to find out there is a fuse...
