Last couple of times I've mowed I've noticed my hands just covered with black spots after a while. My first thought was that the black paint or plastic or whatever from the steering wheel is rubbing off on my hands. I figured maybe it's because the weather is really heating up these last couple of times. But then it occurred to me: just about every time I go to get on the tractor the seat is covered in black dust that I have to brush off. Seems like it's worse lately I think maybe that while I'm letting the tractor cool down it's kicking soot up into the air and after I shut it off and leave it the soot settles on the tractor (including the seat and the steering wheel). Anybody else experience this?

What machine do you have? Looks like a SCUT.. Hard to tell from pics.. but ive never heard of anyone complaining about getting soot all the way up on their hands n body. Usually just the loader or front attachments get sooty over tome.

Take a look at his signature will tell you he has a 2038r.

To the OP, this would be a first time I've ever heard about a soot issue with the 2038 or 2032.

All I use is my IPad and IPhone. I can see the signatures on both.

Hmm, very interesting. I think I'll take this over to the computers subforum and try to figure out what's going on with my setup. I had not used my Dell desktop recently, and now I don't see any signatures on that either. Must be a setting I screwed up somehow. Thanks.

I had soot under the hood and exhaust coming through the hand throttle. I tracked it down to two tubes that were not connected from the catalytic converter or what ever they call it that catches the soot, the two tubes should have been connected to a pressure sensor. there is a plastic partition just in front of the converter, the sensor is on the other side of the partition. not sure if that's your problem but good to check, my partition was melted.

a picture of the tubes is in this thread
