 BX23 questions

I just took delivery of a BX23 and played for about 5 hours, couldn't sleep last night waiting to get back on it today...does Kubota provide psychological support and marriage counseling??

A couple questions, the manual says "do not operate the tractor at "full speed" for first 50 hours". Does this mean driving speed or engine RPM/throttle?? The dealer said to "run it wide open" when they delivered it??

I've been running it 3/4 to 7/8 rpm, a little full rpm, then slower for a while etc. It's not clear what to do and not do??

Will tire chains fit on the rear of the BX23 with turf tires, it doesn't look like enough room between the tire and tractor and if they do fit looks kinda tough to get around inside of tire to install them. Thanks for any info.

 BX23 questions

I interpreted Kubota's language to mean avoid full throttle ops rather than full speed, although one does affect the other.

My RTV manual has the same language but it is impossible to regulate as there is no hand throttle to set and no RPM gauge.

I never figured out a way to get chains on my BX. There just isn't any room.... especially with the B/H in place.

If you run into problems in the winter (and I really don't think you will), add wheel weights or increase rear ballast and decrease rear tire pressure.
