    I was moving around some piles with the little JD 2210 tonight and I took some pictures. Thought that I'd throw them up here.

    Thanks for the comments. Surprisingly it can push a good amount for a 23 horse diesel tractor. I'll have to get a pic of it pushing as much as it can handle and post it up here. The only time that I have trouble is when I'm trying to lift snow that is so wet and heavy that its pretty much slush. We're thinking about selling it and upgrading to a Kubota L5740 with an 8ft pusher.

    I'm having a lot of trouble with the tractor right now though. It will start and then die, and not start up again. It has done this atleast once every storm. So I assumed that it was gelling diesel, but I always put in power service anti gelling fluid. So today when it happened I went to the water separator and pulled that off and there was a lot of water in there so I cleaned it all out and changed the filter and this helped nothing. How I got it started last time this happened was I got a hair dryer and heated all the fuel lines and injectors and fuel filters. After about an hour or two of this I got it started. It was around 32 though so I doubt that the diesel with fuel additive would gel at that temp.

    OF COURSE IS HAS A HEATER! lol No a/c though. I usually don't use the heater after about the first 15 minutes. or else I open the windowos.

    I'm a member over at tractorbynet.com (ctc1111) they all just keep telling me its water in the fuel bowl but I fixed that.

    How would I purge air in the lines?

    this is just a SWAG but if it just dies or stubles along and then dies their could be air getting into the fuel system. there are so many different ways that it can happen though.

    if you are continuing to get water in the fuel then you need to drain the tank and get all the water out. you need to make sure that where ever you are getting fuel from does not have any water in it. last, you want to keep the fuel tank as full as possible, this reduces the amount of air in the tank that can contain moisture.

    I am guessing there might be more water in the tank. The seperator cleaned out once, ran some more and filled up with water again. (Just a guess though)

    Have you checked the tank for water. There is a paste that you can put on a stick and put it in the tank. If there is any water at the bottom, the paste will change color up to the level of the water, indicating how much is in there.

    Look nice and how it fast it go when plow snow? The members at www.mytractorforum.com have those tractors they did some mod or fix that dealer didn't see it. You will see my username there.

    I do believe it is fuel filter become wax because gel. I am not expert but diesel is good engine.

    It moves along pretty good in high gear. But is VERY slow in low gear. What kind of mods did they do?

    I am not sure they put skid plate on hydro transmission because john deer put hydro filter but it got dent because it was expose plus too close to mower deck or another thing.

    And they add cooler for transmission. Trust me they want see you mod anything on your tractors then they would say wow then they do itself. It almost like family forum.

    You will be enjoy but here forum is good but not lot tractors here like this one.
