 BX1500 coming Friday

Greetings, All,

I have a BX1500 being delivered Friday, with the 54-in. deck and a third-party 4-ft. rear blade. This will be my 1st real tractor, after years of getting beat to death mowing my 0.9 acre, rough lawn with a Craftsman 15 hp. Any advice, suggestions, caveats? (I'll read the manual -- probably several times!)

Guess I better get an orange cap...

Cityguy

Just thinking of winter use and the cold we have been having did you get a block heater? Your going to have a lot of fun!

You will have fun for sure. Be sure to follow all the service procedures. The 50 hours service is easy to do yourself and very important. Lots of good links on this site. The book is ok at best but this site will give you all the info you need. Lots of smart Kubota guys here. Join, it's the best 20 bucks you will ever spend!

Congrats on the purchase! I don't care if your tractor is orange, green, blue, red, etc., when you get your first one and start using it, it will be lots of fun. There will probably be a permanent smile on your face for a few days. Enjoy it...I even took mine to get the mail down our 1/4 mile driveway a few times after I first got it. Somehow, I still have to smile when I start it up after I haven't driven it for a while. Kind of crazy I know...

You have to get a trailer too. I've had tractors since I was a kid but it's nice to put your Kubota on a trailer and drive around town. It drives the chicks wild around here! Make sure you armor all the tires first! Take care of that thing and it will last a lifetime. Lots of old Kubotas still running strong out there.

As Art said a Block heater is a good add if you will be storing your tractor in a detached building. If your garage is attached like mine is and insulated, I have found that it is too warm in there to need one, mine maybe atypical as I have a heated room above it and the masonry chimney for my furnace on the back wall. If water does not freeze in yours I would say you are OK without the heater.

If you think you will change storage locations during ownership get the heater now.

Thanks to all who have replied. I was reading previous posts about block heaters, and, yes, that seems like a good idea. In late developments, the dealer called to say they would like to deliver today (Thursday), because the delivery guy is taking Friday off. I agreed, trying not to seem too eager.

I'm also inclined to spend a $20 for premium priveleges on this site, which seems to have a wealth of informed users.

On heaters, I read that magnetic models work on the BX1500. Still true?

Thanks again, All, for the encouragement and info. I'll be around.

Yes a mag heater will work, but, the $20 for the block heater is cheap and will work much better.

Go for the block heater.

I had the biggest Craftsman mower they made at the time, a 22.5 horse. Mowed my 3 acres fairly fast, but as I got older I'd walk at a 90 degree angle for a while after finishing. It just beat my back to death.My wife finally took pity & let me get a used bx2200 w/fel, bb, rfm, and rotary mower (7 acres pasture). NO COMPARISON! Plenty of power, does so much for me! You'll love your 1500!
