    Adapting JD 54” quick attach to BX2680

    Only got to use the blade one time this winter. Results were poor in that it tended to dig in. I feel part of the problem is the aftermarket skid plates that are saucer shaped couldn’t float because of the angle. To level the blade more, the easiest option for me was to add about 2” to the...

    Is it me or is Kubota becoming overpriced???

    Paid $20,000 for a BX2680 June 2022. Quick hitch bucket, 54” deck, turf tires. $23,000 out the door with their high dollar set up fee and taxes. Was going to get the 2380, but the dealer called us and told us the 2680 just got delivered that was ordered before a price hike. It was about the same...

    Deck Dolly

    The u bolts idea did not work as they would rotate. Had some stainless plate so I made 4 plates and tack welded them to the rods and bolted the casters to the plate. .

    Oil not dirty

    Used to be a Royal Purple fan. They were bought out a few years ago. Then read a good non biased article on several name brands. Mobile 1 and Amsoil were in the top on almost every category. RP was near the bottom on many. I have since moved to Mobile 1 since I lost my source for cheap RP and...

    How To Drive On Snow And Ice (1957)

    Impressed with the neat cursive writing. Had a 36 Pontiac with the original owners manual. It was more an instruction manual on how to drive also. Remember my first FWD car in 1989. Was amazed with the ease of winter driving.

    Adapting JD 54” quick attach to BX2680

    Bought 3 hubcaps for a whopping $6. I siliconed in -442 o-rings on the lip that goes into the rim then used my router table to true the o-rings and get a good fit on the rims. Being cheap, I mean frugal, have about $25 in the hubcaps.

    Adapting JD 54” quick attach to BX2680

    Sounds exactly what I did when I had this blade on my simplicity. Blade was on a 425 that I sold when I bought the simplicity. Bought a 425 frame, cut the front off, added spacer blocks and made it an adapter for the blade. Just sold that adapter on Marketplace. With 1/2“ plates, the width was...

    Adapting JD 54” quick attach to BX2680

    Put the blade on. Picture make the top of the blade to appear to be leaning foward more than it looks in person. Looked at several JD pictures and there appears to be a range of this lean. If it plows good I will not worry about it. Looked at a picture of the blade on my now gone Simplicity...

    Snow removal

    But then I get to play with my old 1978 ish 8hp 2 stage simplicity walk behind snowblower. Only needed to do that one time in the 16 years we lived here.

    Snow removal

    This was with my now gone 4WD Simplicity Legacy with a JD54” front blade mounted to the tractor. A lot less tractor than my BX which I have not plowed with yet. About a 1200’ driveway. This was a heavy snow we get every 5 or so years. May be a normal snow for Tomah!

    Good front blade idea even if it is green!

    Was looking for a part number for the JD 425 blade I adapted to my BX and saw this on the JD web page. Kind of a adaption of the Johnny Bucket. I don’t need one but figured someone here may want to make one.

    " Firestarters" for woodstoves ?

    Fat wood works well. Can get it at Menards. Once we start our fireplace, it rarely goes out all winter so we don’t need mech kindling wood.

    kubota grey paint

    Be nice to also get the color code for Kubota orange. Took some pictures of my tractor and with photo shop, every spot I chose on the picture would give me a different RGB code number. All close and probably would do, but would be nice to get the official color code.

    What did you do to or on your Kubota today?

    Got it on Amazon. It has 10 gauge wires. Hooked it up direct to the battery. The leads were plenty long. Threw the bag away so no part number.

    What did you do to or on your Kubota today?

    Got 3 hubcaps for $6, added a couple of -442 orings and a small tube of RTV and have front hubcaps. I like the hubcap look. Also added a plug for charging the battery and put a fender washer on the knob holding the screen as the screen was not tight to the frame.

    Pallet Fork advice bx 2380

    I have the quick attach bucket but got the clamp on from VEVOR for about $100. Figured at that cost couldn't go wrong and not out much if I wanted to go to the quick connect style. Mainly moving brush and been very happy with them.
