    Trailering your tractor

    I tried running my B2650 with a blade and FEL on a 5 x 10 and I'll never attempt that again. My other option is a steel decked dual axle trailer with dual axle brakes. Sure it takes more to get it out and up and loaded, but I like the piece of mind.

    Help! I want to buy a 3rd function kit for my BX 2370

    I did a similar thing with my '14 B2650. Since I am not familiar with tractors or its hydraulics, I just brought my pocketbook. I had my local dealer install my 3rd function kit, returned all my removed components. Took about a day and I was out around 900 bucks, perhaps consider that.

    Rotary Cutter

    Also another reason for the pivots is so the blades can bounce off something too big to cut. Lets it keep spinning instead of jamming like a push mower would. Ever hit a stump with a push mower? Imagine that X 50.

    B2650 issue while idling

    Mine does the same. As stated before, try getting in and out of the tractor without touching the steering wheel.

    Box Blade or Scrape Blade?

    Go box and may I recommend that weight is your friend. with a BX maybe a 4' but possibly a 5' box. I wish my B2650 would have come with a 5' box. I have a 54" bucket but a 4' box.

    Lightweight Pallet Forks Advice Needed.

    I bought my B2650 with the QR forks and it weighs less than my bucket. I think my tractor has the same FEL as the OP and on my tractor I run out of ballast before I run out of FEL power.

    4wd trick

    On my B2650 what I do is start going forward slowly and as I start to lift off the HST pedal, slip it right into 4WD. Works like a charm. To get out of 4WD just repeat the step.

    Adding front weight - ideas please!

    Concrete weighs around 150 lbs per cubic foot where steel is more like 490 lbs per cubic foot. Pick your poison.

    BX or B?

    I'm going to steal a comment from another thread. You never hear someone say they wish they bought a smaller tractor. I have a B2650 and its a beast. I added the 3rd function valve and a grapple. Look closely at the front loader capacities, 3 point lift capability etc. Also a big one for me...

    advise on bush hog

    I have a B2650 and bought a 4' bush hog with a slip clutch. I think I could easily have run a 5'. I have a 26 hp engine.

    How Much Difference

    I agree with Drab where you probably won't get much discount. I have a '14 and love the quick detach bucket. Depends on whether or not you are going to put implements up front. I have the bucket, fork lift forks, and a grapple. Love the ability to change in seconds.

    L2501 or B2650?

    I bought a 2650 but the 2501 was not available. Wasn't aware the L was 2WD. I've had times where 2wd didn't cut it, I even had to lock the rear and 4wd to move a few times where i was doing things. If I was just towing stuff where traction wasn't an issue I would be tempted for the heavier...

    B2650, B3350 Fuel level

    I know that as soon as my B2650 goes from 2 bars to 1 bar is when I shut her down and pour a 5 gallon can of fuel in there. Gets me up to all bars. Takes a whole 5 gallons.

    New B2650 steering

    I agree with the other posters. Put some counter weight on the back. A box scraper could help but not everyone has a good heavy one. Weight out back will unload the front axle and then the steering will lighten up. Also don't forget to check your PS fluid.
