Default X728 Fender Deck Question

Hi everyone, I was wondering if your cupholders on your X700 series tractors have holes in the bottom or are they solid? Mine is solid and always fill with water when I wash it or get caught in the rain. I think I am going just drill a few small holes in the corners but was curious.

Thanks

Adam

Adam,

I have 2012 X748SE and it has 3 small (1/8" maybe) evenly spaced holes in the bottom of it to drain any fluids.

The holes get stopped up due to being the exposed to the wheel well. Look again.

My 2010 x728 cup holder does have holes, but they are too small in my mind, and clog up so that I always need a tooth pick or other similar sized probe to open the holes to drain the water after a wash. I'd guess your holder has the holes, and they are clogged.

Anyone drill the holes out a little bigger?

After washing the winter crud (salt) off the X748 and blower before removing the blower, I noticed the cup holder still had water in it. I looked it over and determined the holes needed to be cleaned out...that is to say drilled out to remove burrs left after manufacture/assembly. I simply used a drill bit by hand from under the fender pan. I would say the holes were about 90% closed. They drain good now!

Thanks for the help, I do have them, but they will need to get opened up some.
