After it cures several hours, you burnish it to smooth & slick it further.

What do you mean by "burnish"? I see that TSC also sells spray on EZ-Slide have you ever tried that? I have a few mf 10/12 decks that are in really nice shape and want to keep them that way, ez slide looks like it will help protect them as well as help with grass build up.

Just rubbing it hard to further slicken the surface. On the flat ntruck beds, I use a piece of 2x4, but on the deck with odd shapes, I just used a stiff broom. Burnish is the term on the can.
Never used the spray can as we keep a gallon around for the trucks.

Been sweltering hot & humid, & farming whooped me bad. So after 9pm tonight, temps finally dropped below 90, so I got the deck slung back under the tractor & deck runs smooth. Will mow tomorrow evening.

Nice deal !

Could you possibly tell me where the connectors go to behind the dash? I have one that I did a partial restoration on. Looks like the color code on the connectors do not all match.

I'll take a look tomorrow if I don't forget.

Good to see someone else has one of these Kubotas. I have a G5200 with a 44" deck and 48" blower, but I really wish it had some hydraulics on it. The tractor is a beast of a snowblower! Does anyone know if the charge pump can be used for aux. hydraulics?

Mine has the same Eaton as I have from an MTD 990, but I don't think the Kubota has a ported pump like the MTD unit does. I could likely just switch the entire pump, or just the charge pump portion & have aux. hydraulics for my deck lift. I have the valve & cylinder also to do it with. IF ever I can get my projects caught up, that would be a worthy project to do.

Adding hydraulics to the G5200 would make a good garden tractor into a great one in my opinion.

I use Easy-Slide to coat my plow. It works alot better than oil or grease.

What about using EZ Slide on the blades? Would it hold up and would it be worth the trouble?

Nope, would definitely not stay more than a few minutes at best.

Kinda figured that but thought I'd ask anyway.
