 Servicing a B2150

I purchased a used B2150 this spring with belly mower and FEL. I can't say enough good about it. I mow about 3 acres plus. I want to blade my 1/4 mile drive with it, but the blade angle is too hard to adjust and it is easier to use my old Furgison. Is there a solution? It had 600 hours when I got it and now has 690. The hydro oil has just been changed to replace a leaking seal. What other winterizing should I do? How often should I change the crank case oil? Hydro oil? I want to install a block heater, any special considerations, or should I just get a in hose heater from an auto parts store. Thanks for any help.

 Servicing a B2150

I'm trying to figure why a different tractor would make a blade easier to adjust. I guess the Bota and Ferguson use different blades.

I can't say much about side-to-side angling since I have a box scraper but no blade. I think that many just have a set of pin stops that sets the angle, but like most things there are convenience hydraulic solutions for most every problem.

If the problem is adjusting the blade angle of attack, I do that on my scraper with a hydraulic top-link. I think that many 3ph blades have adjustable attack angles on the blades themselves but the top-link length also should affect them. A hydraulic link probably would allow convenient adjustment around angles set on the blade.

I think that rad hose heaters are used, but most people think block heaters are better. Most block heaters are installed by replacing a freeze plug. It's not too difficult, but I'd read a procedure for doing it before tackling the idea. It should be a nice easy thing to do and an inexpensive box store heater should work just fine. However, tractor freeze plugs usually are different size than automotive ones so box stores don't have anything that fits. You'd probably end up with a nice expensive dealer part.

Maintenance intervals, fluid types etc. are given in owner's manuals, which would be a good thing to have. Most intervals are on a steel plate on top of my Ford's fuel tank--maybe the Bota also has something like this but it's not a substitute for a manual.

There are some winterizing things particular to diesels. If the Ferguson is gas, then maybe you're new to diesels. There is a bunch of reading about maintenance in the archives, and I'm sure the discussion will carry on here as well.

John, might be able to give you a little more advise if you were to tell us where you are located. It sounds like you have a good start no matter where you live but get back to us.

John.

I have a B-2150hst too John. What do you want to know. 50 hours on the oil change, I change mine in the spring and fall and use 5W-40 Rotella synthetic. 500 hours on hydro fluid.


Jeff
