I have twice had to have the tank in my BX23s removed and cleaned. Has anybody designed an access plate (similar to an oil pan on a car) to allow drainage and cleaning without removing the tank?
As a retired computer geek it's not something I'd care to try. $630 @ dealer. Now that I have it back I'll experiment with filters.twice ? man once was enough for me... some foreign piece of plastic blocked the exit spigot...so I now have a $2 strainer on the filler pipe. several guys use cold coffee filters ($10 us, 40 up here.....)
since tank is a 3 chambered design ,you'd need 3 'plates' not just one.
Kubota quoted me 3 hrs of labour for out-clean-in. It wasn't a hard job for me ,though a 2nd pair of hands, to lift seat assy and floor pan would really have helped !
strange coincidence -- I am I just did the same @ 430 hours. will experiment w/home made filtersI'm still a 'computer geek'.... r+r the tank was simpler than learning C for the PICs.
I did buy an alternative filter (Kubota) to the 1st one..one day I may install it,have just under 800 hrs, so about 400 since the tank cleaning.
I tried that additive but by then it was too late. I recently discovered that so far this year 6 of us Kubota owners in a small town have run into this. There's only 3 diesel dealers in town; 1 sells off road.Curious.....those that had to clean out their tanks. was any additive ever used? Did the machines sit for long periods? Do you have a guess what caused it?
I have not had a problem since buying my new BX in 2017 almost 500 hrs. Have only changed my filters once. I use that (name?) diesel power white bottle in every jug of fuel I buy except for summer when I occasionally use their fuel tank cleaner. I do buy my off road diesel at a station that has a huge turnover.
