Hey cat did we or did we not have a listing of where people are from? I was thinking of a meet and greet maybe and was wondering who was from around SW Pa
Hi, were you able to obtain a part number or manufacturer for the antiscalp bracket written in several posts for the Kabota deck ?

The bx 2200 and bx series tractors tend to run hot and are very sensitive to lack of air flow through the radiator. i have made one major change on my Kubota bx 2200 a after mart radiator for a Honda auto it has three rows of tubes and aluminum tanks top and bottom of the radiator. Rework of the an shroud is required I have a press brake for re bending of the shroud a big job. A new 5 blade fan is next. Please let me know if you have made any other improvements to the cooling system

Orange crusher, I'm new to the forum. I have a 2018 BX2680 w/ 322 hrs and the quick coupler with the lever assembly has a leak on the white line side. I want to do the same mod that you and john T did. I saw his parts list of 4 sets of pioneer couplers, 4 3/8" JIC to 1/4" NPT adapters and the tube clamps. When he said 4 sets that is the males and female correct? When did you get your coupler covers and are you happy with them? Thanks, Steve

Hey Clint,

He actually made me feel smarter just because of our connection I guess, (not that I am stupid, he didn't have much on me in the IQ department), and I know better, but since he is gone all of a sudden I feel so stupid, and I know I still have everything he taught me, everything he ever thought, I have that, I guess it will just take time for me to realize I can't rely on him anymore.

The one thing about him that always aggravated me the most was my mind trying to keep up with his, his mind went a million miles an hour 24/7, he would actually keep me up at night when he was trying to solve a problem, or had another terrific idea he was trying to work out, and atm I still have trouble sleeping because he isn't in my head anymore, yes we were that close.

Cheers
Samantha

Ok to finish.

Lol, just like when he decided to join the Marines, he got up that morning and got dressed, when he got to his car I was sitting there ready to go, so we both signed up together elbow to elbow.

Being identical twins has been a wonderful experience for me, until now.

Cheers
Samantha

For sure Ya'll were very close. He will be there with you forever. Amen.
I'm bought a b7200 three years ago, and I'm on my third glow-plug controller. They burn out and have to be replaced. Plugs won't glow without them which makes starting tough. Is this normal, or is my sketchy wiring causing a problem. Last night, when I first installed a fresh one, there was a little smoke (like it was going to burn out too) before it started to function normally. Any thoughts for a newbie are appreciated.
Hi there, we are new to this forum, so hello all. We have a B1550 - manual gear box, today we have changed the transmission oil but now need to find the transmission strainer to clean that - but we don't know where it is - can anyone tell us where to find the strainer please??

Hi Rob,

I saw in one of your posts that you managed to get your hands on a manual for the KMS180. I've just managed to get my hands on one of the backhoes here in central portugal. The machine has definitely had some use over the years, and there's a few bits that need some tlc. It would be infinitely useful to have a copy of the manual, so that I can go into a tractor shop and point at the things we need to replace (my portuguese really isn't that good!). Would there be any chance of you being able to scan me a copy? I'd be happy to send some money your way for your time....

Thanks
My 2021 L2501 was delivered on September 17, 2021 with only the FEL. After waiting 6 months and two weeks for the backhoe sub-frame, my Kubota Dealer dropped it off today with the backhoe installed. :)
I have a L4240 HST with LA854 loader. Kubota put 10x16.5 NHS tires on front, but with this big loader, the 10" wide tires are just plain wimpy. I want to put 12x16.5 NHS tires on the front but that increases the diameter from ~31" to ~33". Is there a way other than switching the front axel hydraulics to synchronize the larger tires with the rear tires when in 4wd?

You can safely push the back rims out 6" on the rears, the bearings and axles are designed for that.
You can't change the front ratio there are not parts available to do that.

Thank you, I have not figured out how this site works yet. After you said I could push the rims out it occurred to me that I think I have seen tractors with wheels where the rim center disk could be reversed to change the tread width. My wheels are welded. But I still have not found the wheel for a bigger tire and my dealer does not have the patience to look thru Kubota parts list to find a compatible wheel. So, your help has given me another avenue. I'm going to take your information and find any other tire sizes (that any mfg makes) that have the proper rolling circumference. Then go to my dealer and ask which Kubotas use that or those tire sizes. Hopefully the dealer can look up tires and cross reference someway to a Kubota model. Maybe that may lead to a compatible wheel (with removable center disk or some offset) for my rear axle. I think you have been more help than a pile of commentors. Thanks again. I'll let you know in a few weeks what I have found.
I have a BX 2380.. When I bought a new oil filter to change oil, they gave me a smaller size filter than what was on the tractor (I bought new so no one put a different one on). So I went to an on line service and ordered another oil filter thinking the 1st place just gave me the wrong one. The 2nd place gave me the same exact one. Why is the replacement smaller than the original. I'll need 2 different oil filter wrenches. One to remove the first time, and a smaller one when I change oil again. Any thoughts??
