 Overheated 2210

I've had a 2210 for a month or so now, and have really been impressed with it, with one exception: the grill screens tend to get covered over very easily when mowing really tall, dry grass (which we're afflicted with here in south Texas). That leads to overheating, unless I stop and clear the screens every few minutes. I've invested in a modified push broom that I can now use to clear the side screens from the seat, but I only came up with that after a particularly hot day when I suddenly noticed the high temp light lit up and heard the coolant in the reservoir boiling. I immediately stopped and cleared the screens, and the temp light went out after a minute or so, but the engine could have been in that overtemp condition for anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes. So, here are a few questions:

1. What do I need to check/replace on the engine after having run it with the high temp light on? I've already added the coolant that was boiled off (a cup or so) and checked the oil.

2. Can anyone recommend an aftermarket temperature gage I could install myself, or do you think the dealer could add one? I really prefer a gage over just the warning light.

3. Any suggestions on ways to improve the airflow on tractors like the 2210 that are so close to the ground?

Thanks, y'all!
Dan Starling

I agree, the amount of grass that accumulates in the front screen is a "pain" and I can't think of anything you could do except build/fabricate a cowl which point directly up to eliminate the problem. One thing you might try (of course most people want to mow when it's dry) is to cut right before day break and take advantage of the morning moisture.

If you are worried about the over heating then you need to check the cylinder compression pressure and pressure test the cooling system.

I am sure that there is an after market temp. gauge. I might add a siren to make sure your hear it rather than see it. This was something we used on marine apps.

I would run with the FEL on and lower it so that it bent over the tops before they hit the rad screen. Not sure what to do without, but maybe even suitcase weights might bend over the tops enough.

My 2210 suffers from the same affliction, picking up leafs and dry fern or any thing else in the woods. I think you already have the problem licked knowing that you have to watch the screens and keep them clean. I dont see why you would need another guage knowing the cause of the problem and how to correct it but I certainly would rather have guages as well Vs the dummy lights. If it were me and the machine had overheated to that extent I would top off the coolent, Check the air filter and personally I would change the oil just to be safe.

Ditto on what doc said, and use a synthetic on that oil change. Cheap insurance and nothing, repeat nothing, on the market handles heat like a full synthetic oil.

I think I would get a gauge so I would have more warning and the engine would not start boiling before I knew something was wrong. Idiot lights are just that, and cannot replace a good analog gauge for things like temperature or oil pressure indicators.

WalMart sells Shell Rotella T, a multi-vis full synthetic that is specifically designed for diesel engines and also exceeds all established specs for gas engines.

The current price is $12.88 a gallon. I am stocking up.

Mark, thanx for the tip I had no idea Rotella was a synthetic. Here at Wally World it is 19.88 a gallon so at that price I would stock up too !

On the BX Kubota they blow air from the operators compartment across the engine and out the front of the tractor. It is nice on hot days not to have the hot air from the engine blowing back on the operator and it does help to keep this type of problem from happening. Maybe you could turn your fan around and do the same.

Art, simply reversing the fan would still draw air in from the sides seemingly still resulting in the same problem as the fan is mounted in front of the engine. The Kubota deseign is no doubt a solid one. I assume they do this for just that reason. conversly It would seem the JD argument would be that the Kubota is not drawing clean air. A true debate for the engineers. Both motor companys have got a long track record but it really seems a by-product of makeing a small tractor even smaller. We really have to classify theese as Sub-Cuts.
