    Exhaust Filter

    I know most of you do not have this problem, but I will entertain you. My tractors are kept inside my work area and in the winter this can be an issue. The problem is that upon start up, a cold engine dumps some pretty obnoxious fumes. I find it is only start up, after I have run outside for a while I do not have to use it for re-entry. So my solution is to temporarily put a filter on the exhaust to catch 80% of the worste. My filter is 4 or 5 socks inside of one another with a rubber band. When not in use I keep it in a plastic bag. It actually works pretty good.

    How often do you plan on putting clean socks on it?

    So it cuts down on the particulate diesel, but the fumes still have to be there correct?

    You are correct, there is still oder. It seems to catch a lot of the unburnt fuel and particulates. It really makes a huge difference.

    Being our garage is integral,I had to unwillingly,move my 2520 to the barn,because every time I started the tractor,it set off the smoke alarms. All the alarms in the basement are tied together electrically so it made for a pretty noisy deal. Other than having to deal with the mice now,I actually have more room for it anyway,so it kind of worked out for the better.............I think.

    My Mom used to do something similar with her old Maytag wringer washer where she'd put a nylon stocking over the end of the discharge hose to collect lint before it went down the drain and plugged it up.

    When it was draining, the lint/water mixture in the stocking looked like a large stuffed sausage.

    I was messing around last night thinking I was going to play a joke on my wife. She always comments on how my son's socks can get dirty within 5 minutes of him putting them on and she has no clue how. He must take his shoes off at school? We have white carpet so its not from our home. So, I was going to take 2 of his socks and soil them BLACK with Randys idea.

    Well, a 4 year olds socks will not fit over the exhaust on a 4520. So then I thought, this is too good of a joke to waste, I went and got a pair of my white socks. I took one, put it inside out and put it over the pipe and secured it with a pair of very strong rubber bands. Upon startup, the sock flew off the pipe. So I went back to plan 2, zip tie. That worked, but the tractor was not happy with the restriction and the sock was shooting out the bottom side of the tractor at full mast.

    Well after three starts, I took it off and it was not even dirty.:empathy3: I know with my other tractors with would have been black, but this one has the same setup as trucks with the wait to start and there is no smoke, but I assumed there would be something on the sock... BTW, its hell getting the sock off the exhaust when its hot and on there tight with a zip tie.

    Aren't you the mischievous one.

    Just a note, the socks I am using are long tube socks. This allows for a lot of surface area and volume and I think aids in keeping it on the pipe. The small volume and surface area with the increased amount of exhaust gasses of your machine does not surprise me that it did not stay on.

    Go to Home Depot and get a 2 or 3' piece of this, you can buy it by the foot-"1-5/8 in. O.D. x 1-1/4 in. I.D. x 50 ft. PVC Tubing" it should be pretty snug and its max working temp is 175*. That should be able to get you outta the garage. Slip it ob and pull it off
