    Well...it’s finally a Cold Day in Hell.

    There’s a classic old poem “Hell In Texas” ... written by someone in a former-century when it was fun to make-fun about the best place to live in the world.... BUT... it finally got seriously COLD this week. The coldest I’d ever witnessed in my 70+ years here in central Tx was about 17-F...and...

    If one wants to drive “On Road” you should be in an “On Road” vehicle

    What am I missing here? Aren’t these “off road” vehicles? If one wants to drive “On Road”... shouldn’t an “On Road” vehicle have the necessary devices to prevent serious injury to others On the Road? Does your RTV meet the normal braking capabilities of on road vehicles? Does it meet the...

    Tire Sealant Recommendations

    I used to own an old Ford 9N that I constantly got flats from mesquite thorns for the ten years it took to finally rid my grass runway of them. I used “Slime” in the inner-tubes but it ruined the wheel-rims causing severe rust and before I could sell that little tractor I had to buy new wheels...

    RTV-X900 Fuses

    I thought I’d replace a burned fuse in my X900.... but they are NOT the same as the automotive micro fuses commonly seen these days. Has anyone seen these itty-bitty things for sale anywhere but Kubota? WHAT is their “official” size designation? OK..NEVER MIND... I accidentally figured it...

    Latest Base Price on RTV-X900

    Just rec’d a quote from a well-known Kubota dealer for the Basic X900 (General Purpose) with no options: $12, 965 plus $777 taxes, total $13,742 :eek: I was just being curious how much I’d (thought) I’d over-paid for one with only 300 hours on it, but which had the 4K-Warn Winch, Full...

    Every day ...I check...

    Every day I check these forums hoping to pick up some solution to some previously-unknown problem with my X900... but...once-agin... disappointment.... No new posts informing me of someone’s difficulty with their RTV whose knowledge and/or discovery I might some-day find useful for my own...

    Anyone with an idea how to determine the RPM? IN other words, without a tachometer how to do it? And how would a tach attach? (RTV-X900)

    CJ-4 Oil NOT to be used in RTV...??

    I haven't looked to see what is sold in all the stores in my area but I was surprised to read in the WSM for the RTV-X900/RTV-X1140 on page G-11 where it states: "The CJ-4 Engine Oil is intended for DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter) type engines and cannot be used in this vehicle." On page G-8 it...

    Bought a WSM online...

    OK, just thought I'd run this by the group: I went to ebarf and found a WSM for my RTV-X900 for sale at $15. The description specified "Condition: Brand New: A new, unread, unused book in perfect condition with no missing or damaged pages."...

    Overheating Possibility

    When I got my new-to-me 2015 X900 home I found a puddle of antifreeze under it directly beneath the drivers seat. It was a loose hose clamp where a rubber coolant hose connected to a metal tube. Removed the clamp and caught the coolant in a pan, cleaned up the metal tubing light corrosions...

    'nother addition

    Previous owner (or his son) had installed a Warn 4500-S winch and placed the switch adjacent to the LED Lightbar switch such that while operating the RTV it's very easy to hit the winch switch instead of the lightbar. This creates the potential to inadvertently stress the winch ever-tighter...

    Johnny-Come-Lately... but, HEY! I got here as fast as I could!

    I've lived in the "country" for the last 30 years (about 40 miles West of Austin) having grown up in Hot/Humid/Flat Houston and escaped out of there 50 years ago. My Dad kept me involved in Boy Scouts as a young man summer-camping near Wimberly, Tx at a place called "El Rancho Cima" and as I...

    Kerosene Added to Diesel Fuel - NO!

    I've read many posts where owners tell they've added kerosene to their diesel fuel in order to combat cold weather. This USED to be an alternative when Ultra Low Sulfur Fuel was available. No longer. Kubota specifically states that Kerosene is NOT TO BE ADDED to diesel fuel. If cold wx...
