Bx2200

well it looks like i'll be bringing home a new to me BX2200 in the next few days. not sure of the year it was made, but they only made them for 2 years i believe. it has just over a 1000 hours on her, thats fairly low, right?

i will be looking for a FEL for it, anyone have one theu wanna get rid of?...lol or where can i get an aftermarket one? and a tiller?

thanks all!

Re: Bx2200

T-D, I have a BX22 which is basically the same machine with a heavier frame to accommodate a backhoe. Its a 2002 model with right at 1300 hours on it. Its as strong today as the day it was first bought. The only things I"ve don't to it since I've owned it is put a Bxpanded underarmor skidpad on it to protect the hydrostat fan and shimmed the hydraulic relief valve to increase the life capacity of the front end loader. It is a beast of a little tractor and handy as a the thumbs on your hands.

If you find that the hydrostat fan is missing blade don't fret it. Its a fairly easy fix since the propeller shaft will come out once you get the floor pan off.

The newer BX tractors requite the engine be moved forward to replace the hydro fan.

Does your machine have a mid mount mowing deck?

Re: Bx2200

You wont be able to use the Bxpanded skid pan while the MMM is attached. I think Bro-Tek make a skid pan that allows use of the MMM while the pans are on.

Cool Re: Bx2200

Congrats on the "new" toy. 1000 hours is just getting broke in!

I have a 2003 BX2230 (4WD model) with about 1385 hours on it and she runs like a champ! I have the 60" MMM and mow 2.25 acres with it every week. I have also used the crap out of the front end loader over the years putting in the back yard, graveling the drive way, and putting in a garden. After I replace all the hoses on the front end loader (LA211 model if you are looking for one for yours) I need to shim my relief valve as the loader has gotten "weaker" over the years. I have the BXExpanded pressure gauge and shim kit already.

Maybe a one bottom plow.
