 Waiting 6 Months for 50 hr Service

I got my BX2230 2 months ago, and have 30 hrs on it. With winter here, I don't expect to put more than 1 hr a week on it until spring. My question is, will it be alright to wait until I actually hit 50 hrs some time in the spring, or is there a max amount of total time, not just operating time, that would require the service to be done earlier?

Thanks,
David

 Waiting 6 Months for 50 hr Service

I just finished my 4th diesel break-in this month. I have had three new tractors and an RTV since 2001.

They have all taken 6 months or more to hit the magic 50 mark. In fact the RTV went from february to december accumulating the hours.

There have been no adverse effects on any of them.

The six months would not be a problem at all but if it was to extend into 12 then I would highly recommend it!

Thanks guys.
I'm sure once the warmer weather returns, the hours will start piling up so it won't go past the 6 month mark.
4 new tractors in 3 years?! My wife would kill me, which would be OK since I'd also be broke!

If you are not heating the oil by a good hard run, you could be accumulating moisture in the oil. I would at least change the engine oil. Then do your normal 50 service at 50hr.

Do NOT change the oil before 50 hours. The contaminates that accumulate during the first 50 hours are essential to proper engine break-in. If moisture in the oil is a concern, the better bet would be to occasionally start the machine (maybe once a week or so) and run it for a while to steam off any moisture. But leave that oil in the crankcase for the recommended 50 hours. Trust the engineers at Kubota, they know what they are doing!

I just had my 50hr service done on my NH. It took me about 5 months to reach 50hrs. The service tech recommended future oil changes at least once a year, preferable in the spring, if the tractor isn't used much during the winter. Dave

Do you reallythink they suggest to keep the oil in there for 50 hours because the particles help break it in or that 50 is the magic number that the oil is so loaded with junk you need to dump it? I have had several machines and cars and usuallt dump the oil on my new cars at 500 miles, 1500 miles with regular oil and every 3,000 after that with mobil 1. I get 250k out of every engine so far and sell them running great. As far as my machines that were new, I usually do 10 hours, 25 hours and then 50 and every 50 after that. I have had some 3,000 machines both diesel and twin cylinder kohlers still run like the day they were new. This makes me think though. I always thought to get the metal out never thought it would help but you have me thinking.

My Kubota dealer wants to pick my new BX23 at 25 hours and do the first service? I was wondering why since the manual says 50 hours? The rate the hour meters spin on these BX's I should have to have the first service by weekend.
