 BX Questions

Hi,Great site here!I am going thru the usual hand-wringing for the usual scenario. :~)My main needs are mowing 2 to 3 acres and snow removal. Secondary uses will be to pull a utility trailer around, be a power wheelbarrow, some tilling, shredding, and eventually cleaning out a horse stall. I gave a lot of thought to buying a lawn tractor for mowing and a JD 4100 class unit for bigger loader and 3 point capacity. But I can borrow a "real" industrial backhoe-loader whenever I need it, to take down trees and brush and crap. If you think I'm headed down the wrong path, let me know. It will only add to my agony, but let me know.:~)After reading everything I can find, I have some BX questions.1. What is "position control" on a 3 point hitch? We have an old Ford 4000 so I know how to use a 3PH. Is position control the adjustment of height on individual bars?2. I have to remove snow from a 750' gravel driveway. (In northern Illinois, about 6 "real" snows per year). I'm sure a blower would be fun, but would a rear blade do it most of the time? 3. Would the bar type tires mess up the yard during mowing? They seem kind of low profile. Or do I need turf tires? Would turf tires be lousy in the snow?Thanks for any feedback,Don M

Don, I have a BX2200 with a snow blower. I recommend a snowblower for any 750' driveway that gets "real" snow. For most people the highest priority is a FEL on the BX2200. I don't know what it's like trying to plow (with a rear end blade) or snowblow (with a rear PTO snowblower) backwards, but it can't be easy. Fortunately, mine is front-mounted. I have a FEL on another tractor.

My BX2200 has turf tires (with weights). I didn't have any problems with the snow. My other Kubota has AG tires and it can really rip up the place if I'm not careful. At the very least, I always know where I've been.

--Steve

Don, I don't play in snow in Central Texas, but I'll try to explain "position control". If you don't have it, the lever for the 3-point is centered in the slot in the fender. If you push forward on the lever, the 3-point lowers, and continues down until you move the lever back to the center or it reaches the limit of its downward travel. If you pull back on the lever, the 3-point rises, and continues to rise until you move the lever back to the center or it reaches the limits of its upward travel. However, if you have position control, the slot in the fender for the control lever probably has a numbered scale painted on it (mine's 1 to 8). The lever always stay wherever you put it. All the way back is all the way up; all the way forward is all the way down. Move the lever to the middle, the 3-point rises halfway and stops there and the lever stays where you put it until you move it again. In other words, it's much easier to make small adjustments more accurately.

Thanks for the position control explanation. I know exactly what you are talking about now.
Lack of that feature is definitely a drawback.

I have a B7500 with a rear pto blower. Do about 1 mile of snow blowing and we have about 12 to 14 snowfalls of more than 4 inches, less than than and I don't bother.
The rear mounted blower is less expensive than the front mount, that may or may not be important. It is not difficult to operate the blower in reverse. I don't have any experience with a front mounted blower but I can say that the rear mount is very quickly attached and de-tached and you still have the use of your fel, use it for pulling snow back from the doors.
The turf tires are the best of the three tire types for traction in snow, at least that has been my experience.

Don, I have a B7300 which doesen't have position control. It's surely a drawback, but not that big of a problem with occasional use. I wouldn't recommend it for daily use. I do snow removal on a 350' drive with a 6'rear blade and the loader. This combination works great for me.

Don, in northern Illinois with 6 snow events and access to a "real" backhoe for the blizzards I would save my money on the blower and get the next larger model tractor. For the price of a front mount blower you might get 3 models bigger! My Kubota B2710 with back blade and FEL handled the record snowfall in Dec. and Jan here in central lower Michigan just fine. (260' drive way and 10,000,000' of paths to animal pens for the kid's/wife's pets/animals etc. Seemed like 10 mil anyway!) Why not mow with the 4100 class machine?
