  1. 2720: Lights, then No Lights

    Medium Frame Compact Utility Tractors (MCUT)
    Good afternoon everybody! Well, even though my lights aren't working, I'm still super excited. My wife and I just bought a 3.5 acre treed parcel of land and I recently started clearing trees from the footprint of the house. To help with doing that, I bought my first-ever tractor. I looked around...

    Medium Frame Compact Utility Tractors (MCUT)
    I need information on the maintenance suggestions for the front hubs on my 2720. When I bought the tractor, I made note of the maintenance intervals and fluid/part requirements. I just realized the Owner's Manual didn't say anything about the front hubs. How often should the gear oil be...
