    A beveled backhoe bucket is beautiful

    That's clever. Definitely something to keep in mind if I run into this problem on my BX23S.

    Problem keeping BX2380 running

    Well this is cool because I am getting ready to change out the fuel filters on my BX. I watched a youtube video on bleeding the fuel system and the presenter cracked open the connection where the fuel line connects to the fuel rail (or whatever it is) and then turned the key to "ON". I guess...

    Problem keeping BX2380 running

    Owner's manual states: "If the fuel line is removed, be sure to properly bleed the fuel system." hmm ... i just looked up the procedure and it basically says "fill the tank and turn the switch to 'ON' for 30 seconds" :rolleyes:

    Problem keeping BX2380 running

    Matt--that's interesting ... I wasn't aware about BX's tendencies for clogging fuel outlets. Is this all BXs, including the 80 series? What causes that? Also, I like your theory about the system's not being bled after the fuel filter change.

    Problem keeping BX2380 running

    Leaving an engine running in the garage is a great way to get carbon dioxide poisoning.

    Problem keeping BX2380 running

    What do you mean "it is the PTO" ? Because the thing you circled in blue in the picture you posted is part of the three point hitch, not the power take-off. I suggest you try writing without using the word "it"...seriously...it will make it a lot easier for us to help you. Also, it's time to...

    Volvo VCS coolant in a BX25?

    And I was just starting to feel ok about not having $20 IBC totes 😢

    Volvo VCS coolant in a BX25?

    Today I learned that I'm glad I never found a bunch of IBC totes to store firewood in because my BX23S wouldn't have been able to lift them on forks. Pretty effing brilliant of you to use the bottle as a rain cover. I never would have thought of that.

    Volvo VCS coolant in a BX25?

    Color me jealous! I thought about using IBC totes for firewood a couple of years ago, but I haven't found a local source anywhere close to that price. What a score.

    What did you do to or on your Kubota today?

    Oh yeah, I know exactly what you're talking about now. I have a small gas-powered towable DR chipper and have read the instructions on checking and adjusting that.

    What did you do to or on your Kubota today?

    Looks like you dogged a bullet. Hearing the sound of the casting break must have been a heart-stopper. What do you mean by "check the bed gap"? Is that the front-to-back movement, parallel to the shaft axis of rotation? Like what a thrust bearing would adjust? Also, my condolences. --eric

    What did you do to or on your Kubota today?

    Today I continued using the box blade on my driveway, future maintenance area and future flower garden ... mostly using the rippers to loosen the soil and bring larger rocks up to the surface. Then I mounted my new landscape rake to see what it could do. It's a very useful tool. I am realizing...

    Kubota oil

    Ralpha-- I've been looking at your VB code and some of the other viscosity calculators out there. This morning I started writing my own version in R. I have a couple of questions about the code you posted: 1) There's a comment in your code about calculating viscosity differently for cs...

    Kubota oil

    Glad I have access to the code for the viscosity calculator ... I'm learning a software tool (r/shiny) and this gives me a simple calculator to mimic.

    The attached file contains the javascript for the Widman calculator that Hokie is using, in case you're curious. It's not very good code, btw.

    BX 2380 throttler/power lever question

    Here's a Link to the YouTube playlist ... 47 videos Excellent series by Jim Pytel. I'm really quite chagrined that I forgot one of the basic things I learned, (pump speed affects flow, not pressure) which lead to @Dieseldonato correcting me. Jim Pytel has a bunch of videos on all sorts of...

    BX 2380 throttler/power lever question

    Hmmm, I actually was aware of that (I watched an entire 43 episode series recently on hydraulics). Next time I have a bucket full of rocks, I'll have to pay more attention to what's actually going on. Thanks!

    BX 2380 throttler/power lever question

    Oh yeah ... forgot that little tidbit. So why does it seem like I have to increase the engine speed past a certain amount before the FEL will lift a heavy load? Am I just misperceiving what's actually happening?
