    Front Mounted Weight Bracket

    Today, I installed the BX8064 weight bracket on the front of my BX22. I mounted a BL8060 55# weight on it, and proceeded to look through my nut and bolt cabinet for a bolt that will hold the weight to the bracket. Kubota makes a BL8062 bolt kit for it, but at $6.00 per kit, and needing 5 of...

    What size suitcase weights?

    What size suitcase weight does the Kubota BX22 use. I know that there was a separate bracket for the weights, and I do have a drawing of it somewhere. I am going to need the front weights when I start using the rototiller. If I find the correct weights, I will build the bracket. thanks.. Dusty

    HST Whine

    I have been following the thread about filling the ROPS to lessen the hydrostatic transmission whine, and it started me thinking about what this "whine" is telling us. How much whine should the hydrostat make, and when is the whine indicating an imminent failure? My BX22 with about 775 hours...

    Suitcase Weights - Used Value

    I am going to be shopping for some used weights, and was wondering what I should pay if I were to come across some suitcase weights. In the past, I have seen some yellow & green JD as well as orange Kubota weights, but at the time, I wasn't in the market. What would be a reasonable or fair...

    BX22 Seat source

    Searched the forums for information, and haven't found any recommendations. I even tried the site that was suggested on the thread about the B7100 Seat source, and that company doesn't have a seat listed for the BX22, and their website has limited listings for the BX tractors.

    Drift Cutters Yea or Nay

    Been thinking about making some drift cutters for when we get really deep snow. I used to plow with the storm, but now I rather just go out after it is finished snowing and clean it up all at once. A few times, I had to keep the snow blower (BX2750) a couple of inches off of the pavement, just...

    Metric or USS on a BX22

    Are the wheel bolts on the BX22 (1800/2200) metric threads or are they USS fine threads? I know that the BX22 was manufactured in the USA, but I don't know if it is a mixture of US and Japanese parts. If they are metric, do you know the exact size? thanks
