    Kubota Rotary Belly Mower RCK54-29B

    Hi All, The mmm and three point hitch design is as primitive and stupid as it can be. Even properly adjusted it does not stay. The components are under designed; workmanship is bad, specially welding. I finally have enough and start to modify the whole set up. You should be able to operate one...

    50 Hour Oil Change--What Oil to Use?

    Hi All, Teflon in the oil sticks to all metals and prevents dry contact between. 25 years ago, maybe even longer, they tested Teflon additive in Australia. They run a car with added Teflon in the engine oil from Melbourne to Sydney. Then they drain the oil from engine and run it back to...

    50 Hour Oil Change--What Oil to Use?

    Hi All, I use common brands of oil, as the climate where we live is very mild even in winter. What I use for last 15 years is a Nulon additive, which contains Teflon. Since then I have not had to rebuild any machine. I put it in all my diesel engines and hydraulic transitions. Regards Frank

    Hi all, what oil you going to put in? The options are Hydraulic fluid, agrioil (suitable for engine and transition including HST, or 10W-30W engine oil. My preference is engine oil, even synthetic for maximum protection. Cheap price is result of big volume of production and number of brands...

    OEM replacement costs

    Hi All, when I cut the trees I clean around the bottom of the trunk, possibly wash by garden hose and cut around the trunk aiming my chainsaw bar in the ground. Then push the tree over. This way I end up with hole in the ground and no stump. This is not always possible on the hills, but...
