    BX2200 mower deck.

    Hi everyone. I have a RCK60BX mower deck on my 03 BX2200. My question to you folks is the clearance of the deck to the rear tires. After all these years I noticed the gap between the rear tires and the deck is different on the left vs right side. On the right the deck clears by 1/2", on the...

    Shopping around never seases to amaze me.

    Went shopping for lower cost OEM oil filters and found Amazon to be $6 higher than my dealer charges. Seems my dealer is not gouging like other dealers I know have. Not much more money than Walmart and OEM rather than aftermarket.:dance1:

    How many amps should a starter draw? JD 155c mower

    Hi Folks, I am working on my neighbors JD 155c. It has a short that is blowing the 20 amp fuse. I can track that down. The question I have is when bench testing the starter it draws 24 amps. Under load it draws 103 amps. This seems high to me. Does it sound like the starter is getting bad too?

    Sludge in Rotella T5

    I just changed the engine oil after 100 hrs. I used Rotella T5. I found clumps of sludge in the drain pan afterwards. I use Kubota filters. The tractor has 1380hrs on it. Has anyone found this in their oil? I have not found sludge before using other oils in any of my equipment or vehicles.

    Prices of new pickup trucks.

    I no longer have a dog in the fight but can't help wonder how the young contractors, construction workers and other related job workers are going to afford to keep and maintain trucks for work. The prices of new trucks are far more than what I paid for my first house. I bought a Chevy C10 new...

    Difference bewteen Owners manual and enging label???

    I have an 03 BX2200 with the D905 engine. The owners manual states 22hp. The engine has one label id'ing the engine as a D905. On the other side a label id's it as a D 1005-E and 23.5hp. I suppose the factory could have stuck the wrong label on one side. :confused3:

    Asphalt or concrete for shed pad?

    Has anyone used asphalt for the pad for their small shed (16x20) used to store lawn and garden equipment? Is it strong enough or durable enough? The reason I ask is the contractor that repairs our private roads will do the work for a very discounted price while working on our roads.

    My BX2200 runs hotter when mowing than roto-tilling

    I have had my BX for three years now and just started mowing my one acre with the MMM. I notice when doing FEL work or roto-tilling the yard the temp only moves up about a quarter of the temp gauge. When I mow the temp goes up to about 1/3 of the gauge. Does this seem normal? I work the BX...

    BX balast box size?

    Hi Group. I am planning to build a ballast box for my BX2200. Since the FEL can only lift 460lbs. I cannot imagine the box needing more than 100 to 200lbs. Does this sound right?
