Kubota BX1880, loader, mower deck, and ballast
- Oct 18, 2022
I purchased a second hand Kubota BX1880 last Sept with 80 hours on it. I have come to believe it was one of the local Kubota dealer rentals. They did zero maintenance and service on it. I had to do all the service to bring it up to acceptance, but still had a very annoying noise that sounded like an empty beer can bang around inside the engine compartment. i was worried for awhile, and wondered if I bought a lemon. Seeing as it ran so good, I decided something must be loose. At first I thought of it might have a heat shield on it near the muffler. Nope nothing there. Further checking I determined that it was a loose fan belt. I checked and the belt was loose, so I tightened it up and now the beer can is gone.
