Thanks for finally doing a maintenance on one of the machines. I don't think you have ever done one on video before. If you did it was way back before the "tractors we don't mention any more"

I changed the oil in my mower the other day and didn't spill a drop. A new personal record! At least you didn't drop the drain bolt from the oil pan into the drain container!

Put the camera closer so can hear tractor working. Put camera in cab so we can hear the in cab noise. Hydro noise drives me nuts. Please compare the 5400 to the rk 55 wrt hydro noise.

Maybe chop the bottom off of a 55 gallon steel drum (or plastic). They are 23 inches in diameter. Maybe build or purchase a circular wheeled frame for the "drum drain pan" and attach a T-bar to maneuver it around? ....and a drain plug or valve in that drain pan to empty it without having to lift or tip it over, etc. However you do it, empty the old oil into a container for recycling... Otherwise time passes, we forget about it...and it rains. The water is heavier and goes to the bottom. Then the oil is the first thing to overflow... and defeat the purpose of the entire effort (reducing a mess). Oil pollution? Didn't they discover oil in the ground of...Quaker State? Haha

Mike, checkout the Fumoto drain valves. Once I discovered them, I have them on everything I own! Great toolless, clean and fast way to change oil. I bet they have one for thoe Kubota tractors.

Hi mike, you and Melissa, have made your property so nice 👍 you both work very hard and have put a lot of effort into it , it looks lovely. 😄👌🤗
Fire wood bucket to sift roots from soil/dirt. At different times: dropped a gallon glass jug (remember lemon blend) of oil, filled transfer can from a 55 gal drum on it's side - I can go away and come back in time to shut the valve, NO!!. I spilled more oil and wasted more money than I ever saved by buying a 55 gal drum. I hate changing oil. The cars are too low to even get a pan under them. Thanks and take care.

Well Mike I’ve got you beat on making a mess changing oil. Back some time ago I changed oil in my JD 4850 without making a mess but I forgot to move the can I drained it into. Needless to say a full 5 gallon bucket is not much of a match for a 22,000 lb tractor.

👍🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🗽🙏🏻 Enjoyed, glad to see you do the 50 hr maintain on tractor....so important for the long haul!
Hey Mike Morgan You may know this but with running your tractor in those dirty conditions your radiator, condenser and air cooler(if equipped) will get full of dirt. Water doesnt get them clean. You have to use compressed air. Blow them out opposite the normal direction of air flow first, then from the normal direction and back and forth. Be careful not to get too close and you wont bend any fins. Your shop is looking good. Looking forward to seeing the finished product.

Was wondering if you swapped out the filter magnet on the suction side from the old filter to the new one? I forgot to and had to spin my new filter off and reinstall with the magnet. I couldn't tell from your video if you did this or not. Just wanted to let anyone know that has a MX5400HST so they don't mess up like I did.

Strangest oil sump I've ever seen, obviously configured that way to accommodate the driveshaft...would love to know how the oil pickup (pickupS?) for the oil pump are arranged...it also looks like it would also be a fairly big job if the sump had to be removed for any reason! I think for this application a dry sump might have been a reasonable alternative, I wonder why they didn't do that...

Hey mike I know what you mean. I changed my water pump on my pickup. So it went on without a hitch. Put antifreeze in it then I started it up it run for about five or six minutes so get warm I noticed it was spraining any freeze. Turn off the motor call the pump back off. The gaskets had somehow twisted. So now it’s midnight and I have to wait till tomorrow to get me some new gasket. So I know what you’re talking about Mike you do one thing everything goes smooth and then something happens. I was going to ask you I noticed that whenever you before you close the hood on your tractor there is a place for a air filter I didn’t know if you change it or not. So keep up the good work.

as for dropping you oil wrench in the oil.....thats every mechanic saying HAHA, please never use a filter wrench to tighten your filters. Tighten by hand only. go until the filter touches, then 1/3-1/2 a turn past that. Thats it....no wrench needed....ever

Thanks for saving the Toads😊👍 It is a real good idea to use all KUBOTA Lubricant's there is a big difference in quality and additives they use. Although the grease is no biggy; but the Super UDT2 hydro fluid and engine oil is🚜👍😊

Mike I too can relate wit the spilling of oil lol. When I change the hydraulic oil filters even though I don't spill much the level does go down when the new filters get filled after running. I would suspect you should check your level again after running. Glad to see you are getting back into the groove and you are seeing progress on the new building. Man wish I could build a building half that size lol Take care and stay safe

You might have trouble getting the oil filter off next time. You should not tighten it with a filter wrench when installing a new filter.

Im with ya on spilling oil. I changed the oil in the ranger today and made a mess before i even started. I grabbed my drain pain and hadn’t completely emptied it and slung oil every where. Took the filter off the ranger and dropped it, another mess. A 15 min job turned in to 45 mins to get the messes cleaned up. The Kabota looks good all cleaned up. My RK55 is coming home this weeken and getting serviced and a bath. Stay well, stay safe and yall HAVE A DAY

Hey Mike, check out Lincoln Industrial LNI3665 its a 17 gallon oil drain pan on wheels with a screen to catch everything and a 12v pump to drain it into an ibc tote or whatever. I use if for my equipment and our fleet, It was a life saver. Not great on gravel but for the new shop.

Mike - get yourself some automotive grade rubber gloves for these messy jobs. They clean up easy and can be used multiple times. As a helpful hint, buy yourself a 5 gallon pail of oil versus the quarts. Cost effective option and environmentally friendly over the quart containers. Might think about a power wash under the hood/engine compartment, as that dust will turn to rock over time, if left to accumulate. BTW, the orange dirt didn't come off! Love the videos and look forward to the build.

Oh, one other thing, if you are looking for any bolt on wheel weights for the MX, you can use 140lb Farmall Super A rear wheel weights. They are a direct bolt up with some all thread. Found someone in Erie who restores old Farmalls and was sell the weights off. Farmall cub is not the same rim diameter. I have 2 on each side of mine and was a little cheaper than other vendors. My profile picture shows only one installed and decided why not load up the rear end with weight. If you are at all curious, I also married a Bobcat 709 skid steer backhoe to my MX5100 complete with subframe and fabricated a homemade cab for snowblowing during Lake Effect snows.

Hi Mike, hey I have been watching your channel for a few months now and appreciate all things going on at the household. As a former High Horsepower Tractor Specialist with Case IH (which by the way I am not too far from you in Erie, PA), the number one item that gets missed and not written up in all the maintenance schedules is...changing front axle oil. Yes, you can get by without changing it but that oil is unfiltered, so if there is any shavings from the mfg line or casting sand that finally comes loose from churning, it can go right for your axle seals. Changed that oil at 50 on my MX5100 and BX2360. Also appreciate seeing Hunter in your videos too! My brother is autistic as well however he is not mute but does live in an assisted living home near Clarion, PA. Kudos to the videos you and your family are generating!

That's a very expensive way of changing your oil. I imagine the price of those quart bottles would be eye watering compared to 5 or 44 gallon drums bought directly from an oil company depot.

Once again the engineer who designed the engine and placed the oil filter never talks to the engineer who designed the chassis and placed the front axle. Would it been that hard to locate either one 2 inches forward or aft to avoid oil running over the axle? I guess the engineers are chronic oil spillers too.🤪

Mike, you should dig a service pit (maybe off that steep edge by the renewable resource processing facility) You have all you need to cut timbers and posts that will hold your tractors, trucks and UTV. I'm reaching an age where crawling on the ground is VERY unappealing. Being able to stand up under the tractor would be a BIG improvement and lifts are pricey. Don't forget to pitch it a bit so it doesn't fill with water
