    Diesel delivery today

    Received 322 gallons of farm diesel and wrote the check for $968. Red dye-no road tax,no sales tax. Much better than last year! We like the summer blend and wait it for it for the higher BTU content. We're careful to make sure it's treated for winter. Lots more snow blown with summer diesel than...

    Kubota Grand L filters from WIX.

    Retired from auto parts sales several years ago. At that time,I never saw any major aftermarket brands offering the hydraulic and HST filters for the Grand L filters. You know,those two expensive filters on either side of the tractor. Thinking about heading to the dealer to buy for the year for...

    Illustrated Parts Lists

    I recently noticed the format of Kubota's illustrated parts lists have changed. They are at,and are the same ones Messicks takes you to,as well as other dealer's websites. So far,I've found them much more difficult to use. If I don't get the hang of the new lists,I'll be tempted to...

    Super Clean vs. soot

    Some time back I picked up a spray bottle of Super Clean after seeing an ad on TV. When I removed my front snowblower this spring,the left side was covered in soot as usual. Well,I sprayed some Super Clean on it and tried to rinse it off with the water hose. No dice! So I wiped it off with a...

    Oil change with Form-a-Funnel

    I occasionally see B3030 owners wondering how to do a neater oil change. The loader mount is directly under the oil pan drain plugs. There are two access holes in the mount for socket clearance,but no way will the oil flow through them! Enter the Form-a-Funnel. It's a 6 1/2" x 14 1/2" flexible...

    B2782 Blower Chain Lubrication

    I've got 3 hours on my new B2782 snowblower. I see in the manual it calls for chain lubrication every 4 hours. I've been wondering what to use and how to apply it. On my previous B2660 blower,I was able to remove the chain cover by removing 2 screws,giving access to the top of the chain...

    Been thinking about posing this question for some time-Is there anything wrong with using older fuel additives with ULSD fuel? I have several jugs of Power Service as well as some OTR and some other stuff as well. People give me the stuff because they know I'm a diesel nut. Well,I've...

    Been meaning to join since getting the new B3030HSDC just before the Good Friday snowstorm. Just now got the prerequisite photos to post. Thought about the B3030HSDCC,but couldn't see almost $400 for the rear wiper,defogger,and 60 amp alternator. Traded off a 1992 B17540HST with FEL,MMM,and 60"...
