Totally digging my Husqvarna TS348D!

She's a beast! I've had her for a few days and I've been working her like a dog. I picked up a front scoop and have been using her to move and level fill around my yard. I've got 4hrs on her so far. Today I'm going to drive her a mile to my elderly neighbors house and do thier 2-3 acre yard.

I figure I should change the oil. The manual says change it after 25hrs, but shouldn't I change it sooner seeing how it's a new engine?

Re: Totally digging my Husqvarna TS348D!

Another question just came to mind, it's very dusty here, should I grease anything on a regular basis?

Re: Totally digging my Husqvarna TS348D!

I just got my TS348XD Thursday. I was told to do the 1st oil & filter change at 5 hours. Thatís what I plan to do. If itís dusty, just double check the air filter to make sure itís clean.

Re: Totally digging my Husqvarna TS348D!

oldpaddy, how do you like the front scoop? I just picked up TS 348XD yesterday and been debating about the front scoop. Decided against it for now, got the box scraper and sleeve hitch & dump cart instead.

I like it. It has its limitations, but it sure beats a wheelbarrow and shovel.
I've got a dozer blade coming too.

I bet it does!

The man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war, and afterwards he turns the rifle in at the armory and he believes heís finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands ó love a woman, build a house, change his sonís diaper ó his hands remember the rifle and the power that rifle proffered.

Re: Totally digging my Husqvarna TS348D!

I asked this question in it's own thread, but seeing how you are using the front scoop, I'll ask it here as well:

I'm about to place an order for a new GT ( Husqvarna TS 348D) and was wondering if their front scoop could be used to pick up 3/4 crushed rock and dump it over a 18-24 inch freestanding wall (about 6-9 inches wide)?

Also, how wide of a trailer will need to pick the "ready to go" tractor up form the dealer?

Thanks for any insight you can give me!

I don't believe the tractor scoop will lift that high. I know my Johnny Bucket wont.

No, the scoop barely gets off the ground. There are adjustments that can be made, but I haven't gotten that far yet. I highly doubt the adjustments raise it enough for your needs.

Doing my first oil change!
And my dozer blade came in today. I'll put it together hopefully tomorrow.

Man, I love this tractor!

Re: Totally digging my Husqvarna TS348D!

Hi all, just wanted to say that after 20hrs+ and spreading tons of fill (with more the come!), I'm still LOVING this tractor!
Other than the pain of switching between the dozer blade and the front scoop, she's a dream. I've spread tons and tons of fill and have had no problems. I've even used the dozer blade to fix a few ruts on my dirt road after a couple of nasty thunder storms.
