Guys,
On hot days in the summer, my B2150 overheats sometimes. Enough that I'm still thinking about it in winter.
There is no leak, fluid is topped off, etc. I know the grass clippings get in the screens. Maybe I just need to stop and clean them more. Aside from that, is there something I should be checking? Is there a thermostat that could be sticking?

No problem now, but summer will come eventually.

Saserby,

Overheating during the hot summer weather is frequently due to debris plugging up the radiator, itself.

It's important to clean the debris screen ahead of the radiator, but it's also important to take an air hose, with a long wand and soft rubber tip, to the radiator. You'll be surprised what comes out of there. Mowing is a very dirty job.

Next, make sure your grill is clean. All of those little vented openings up front are important in the cooling circuit. There are about four of these little screen vents below the grill, and then there's the grill itself. Additionally, the side covers need to be cleaned to allow for proper air flow.

If you do those things.......being very careful not to make direct contact with the radiator......I believe you'll find that the overheating problem will disappear.

Joel ....

Was changing fluids and filters in my compact Kubota a few days ago. Ran air nozzle over what I thought was decently clean radiator when blowing trash out of the battery compartmnet. Was I suprised as what all blew out of the fins.

Don't miss air filter, clogged filter will also cause it to over heat and running in higher range than should for load did with mine before I got use to the hydrostat trans. ....

Thanks guys. I have blown it out a bit in the past, but I admit I don't tend to it regularly. I think it's time to take the front clip off and do a good job on it. ....
