            Well, gotta scram. Tractor repair guys came out yesterday, spun a new zerk fitting right in my Kubota. Also found another one loose, guess they've seen that before. Also learned I was "back blading" wrong, was dropping my bucket flat to put into float mode. There's a nice thicker edge I should have been pointing down, duh! Will probably get a rattle can of Kubota orange since I was a little tough on the paint there. Have a Great Day All!

                      85 today,hotter tomorrow. Toyota for front wheel bearing.
                      Owner says its pulling left,left rotor is hotther than right and tire is wearing. I hope bearing fixes it all. Im thinking so. Otherwise i pull all the wheels, calipers and finish with an alignment.

                          Sorry Ben. It was a nice night so we went for a 5000 step walk. August 21-23. The poster file is too big but if you download it it will show up in your tray (lower left) you can open it there.

                              Check the bucket controls for a "FLOAT" position. That makes for no hydraulic pressure, no up, no down, no hold. For just knocking down the high spots and spreading them around on an established grade that's the ticket. Flatter the cutting edge, less it cut in either direction. Does the bucket have a replaceable cutting/leading edge? If not, it be a good idea to look into adding one. Wear the factory welded on away to nothing and scarf the remnants off, drill some holes, bolt the replacement on with the aid of counter sunk bolts so the bottom remains flat for the most part and the heads of the bolts don't wear off :lol:.

                                  Guy managed to grind the cutting edge off the kubota in a couple days of plowing snow.
                                  Bucket pointed down,front wheels in air. It was so hard to watch,and i was not allowed to say anything.Aparrently i had a knack for pushing his button. Guy would lose his mind if i pointed out anything that made sense...

                                  i drilled bucket and put on a bolt on cutting edge.It was way tougher and made finishing grade much easier,As it would carry a little material when backdragging.
                                  Using bucket heel is hard on it too.

                                  I just used 1/2"x6" strap for our tractor at the rock farm. I made a template so I could make the cutting edge on the drill press with the help of a torch to cut the crude angle on the top edge. 1/2" counter sink allen screws i used to hold it on. The rock heads wear it out, I spend a couple hours to make a new one.
