Just in case anyone else can learn from my misadventure. 100 hours on the tractor, bogging down so badly while using snowblower that I had to give up and call in my neighbor with his big Ford tractor. 5800 ft elevation, snowbanks about 4 ft now, winds frequently blowing exhaust into engine. Ended up with lots of carbon buildup in the air filter, Kubota technician cleaned the filter and much improved, but suggested a new air filter when I can get to the shop. Also suggested putting a an ATV Air Filter Sock over the intake to allow easier cleaning and to keep some gunk out of the air filter. High altitude seems to generate more exhaust particulate, in the snow tunnels it doesn’t disperse much and tough snow causes some bog-down anyway. The LX2610 exhaust is not in a great location either. Live & learn. . . .
