 An Orange Machine in the Neighborhood

With all the help and advice from Ken, Art, Murf, Mark, AV8R, Chief and others I decided on the BX 2230,loader, 54" mower and bagger. Probably a BX 1500 would have been enough, but now I have plenty of power. My John Deere neighbors with a 585 and 455 were surprised how quiet this tractor is. Now I am just waiting for the grass to grow. I have done some digging with the loader and it works very well. If anyone has any tips on taking off and putting on the bagger I would appreciate that information. Thanks again to the forum.

Glad I could be of some small assistance in the process and congratulations.

Another Muphy on an Orange machine, it does the heart good!

Laughing out loud.

Best of luck.

Yes after almost 20 years of being green, I turned orange. You and Art had a lot to do with my decision. So far I am very impressed with the quality.

Thanks,

Greg

It is hard to beat the quality of a Kubota or a Yanmar Deere. Have fun, glad we could help.

I agree, I could use some tips on taking off and putting on the rear bagger on a BX2230
the 1st time I took it off took several hours and 2 jacks
I learned a lot that time and think I could now do it in about 1/2 hr. I have not tried putting it back on yet.
I am not a mechanic and have never worked with 3 pt hitch before, I know it looks easy. But,getting everything lined up was not easy plus dealing with those little rings that hold the pins in place in areas you can not get to easily.
There has to be some tips or shortcuts.

Big Jim,

I don't feel so bad. It took me about 30 minutes to put it on. I was thinking more like 5-7 minutes would be good.
I know the product manager for the BX tractors. I will put a call into him and see if he has any tips.

I thought the best Irishmen were always Orangemen......

Rolling on the floor laughingMAO......

Or is that just on July 12th ?

BTW, tip for Newbies who are not used to those little clips, they're actually called Linch Pins, used to hold something on the pins of the 3pth. Be very careful, they have a nasty hbit of snapping closed on the finger holding them, and boy-o-boy does it smart, in cold weather you'd almost think you're going to lose the finger completely. My nephew calls them "leg-hold" pins after the old-style animal traps, when one snaps shut on your finger you might well agree.

Best of luck.

Thank You and Congratulations on your new toy. I can't help you yet with the bagger as we sell more trailers then the mounted type but as soon as I can find out will let you know. I would think ten minutes is a realistic time frame from when I've looked at them.
