 Is there a good answer?

I have a B7800 with a belly mower that I use to mow 3 acres with. I usually mow once every month. What is a good solution to prevent the front grill from getting clogged with dust and grass clippings? Today, mine got clogged up and over heated. Spewed out some anti freeze also. I am having to stop every 15 minutes and clean off the grill so a nice air flow will remain.

Also, I need to replace the spewed anti freeze. Will Prestone work in this model? Thanks in advance!

It sounds like you're waiting to long between cuttings and perhaps the grass is going to seed? Your MM should be throwing to th side so you shouldn't be picking up cut grass unless it's not set up right but even then it would have to throw it in front of the grille in order to suck it in. Also, if it's that bad I'd check your air filter too, and clean the radiator outside with a water hose. If all is correct with your setup, install an oversize piece of fiberglas window screen over the front which will make it easier to shake out the stuff by pulling off the screening. I'd check your owner's manual for the coolant specs.

Kubota uses the green stuff. Once a month is a hand full of work for a mmm. You might want to get a brush cutter. As for the grill clogging up there is real no easy way to get around it. Maybe wrap some nylon mesh around it so it can be more easily cleaned.

I saw my grandfather use metal window screen and just shook it off when it got clogged.
