As above really!
How often do you guys change filters on your machine?
Has anyone ever cleaned the suction filter on the tank?
Any other things to look for / do?

It says in the book, engine oil and filter every 100hrs but I used to do it every 150 as oils have improved a lot since they came out. I used 10w30 in the engine and Kubota hydrostatic oil for the hydraulics. I used to change the hydraulic oil and hub oils every year along with filters. There is a suction oil filter in the tank which I changed once but the genuine one was £££ so if you adapt the fitting then you can use an off the shelf one which are the same size. Keep the air filter clean or replaced too as this has a big effect on they running.

Thanks Mike!
Do you remove the suction filter from the outside?
Also where do you go for your filters?
I'm just ticking towards the 150 hour mark so need to get her serviced!

I used genuine Kubota filters from my local dealer but because the rg30's are all jap imports the dealers don't have and parts references for them. They supplied 3 types of oil filter and the middle one fitted no problem. you could also go to a motorfactors and they will be able to cross reference it. The suction filter is accessed from the top hatch if I remember rightly and just unscrews. I used a steel water fitting fitting to change the size filter end so that I could get a more standard one on there. If you want convenience you can ring Cautrac, quote your serial number and they will post it all too you, but will be a bit dearer

Hi Mooresft. I get my filters locally from a firm called inline filters. You can buy on line just google them. They sell Baldwin filters. The filter codes are BT8844 hydraulic spin on , engine oil B227 , fuel BF940 , air PA3476. Had no problems with these filters. Also if ever you need an exhaust. Try googling GT exhausts they do a pattern part. May not last as long but it was on the shelf and a third the price. Hope this helps.

Thanks for the info, top work!
I've got a filter kit coming from Rico, hopefully they fit!
I'll have a look, my exhaust has definitely seen better days!
Cheers
