 bx2200 oil capacity

The manual states 2.6 qts. with filter. With this amount, the level is between the two marks on the dipstick. Shouldn't the level, when full, be at the top mark?

 bx2200 oil capacity

Somehow I think I recall hearing that some tractor manual has a wrong spec for engine oil capacity. I don't know if that is this tractor though. Far as I know the idea that the top mark means full is pretty universal. It will make some diffence to levels if a tractor is sitting on a slope or depending how long the level is checked after adding new oil.

I bet if you tipped another cup (8oz) into it it would come up to the full mark.

I wouldn't be concerned one way or the other as I can't imagine it will harm the engine to run anywhere between the high and low marks.

The engine Tom is remembering with the out of spec specs is the Yanmar from the Deere 4100. It called for 2.5 qts. but showed full at about 1.9 qts.

I know it's ok anywhere between the two marks. The manual states that,but with all the autos and trucks I've changed oil on throughout the years, they were always full when at the top mark. The bx only specs for 2.6qts, which is alot less than 5-6qts for my auto and truck. I would think that with less capacity, it would be more sensitive to not having full capacity in the pan. Just wanted to make sure it is full.
Thanks

I think it's true that compacts have much smaller oil reservoirs than cars and trucks--a lot smaller displacement too. My dipstick is at a very low angle so a little bit of oil makes quite a change on the stick. The difference between the top and bottom mark probably doesn't make much difference to engine operation. Thanks to Mark it seems pretty safe to think that the top mark means full.

Mark: I forget which thread your box scraper comment was in. I think a scrapper should work OK for pushing back banks--especially for people without loaders. The extra weight compared to most blades should help keep it down. I do use my scraper a bit that way mostly in the spring. I use the scraifiers to break up my snow pack turned to ice. The ice chunks collect in the box and I dump them when full. I then get them off the drive with either the loader or rear blade of the scraper. Guess I've continued by cutting down some of the banks with the scraper--worked pretty well.
