Tech Tip: Prevent Overheating by Inspecting your Radiator

Kubota Mower Radiator Screen Debris

Check your radiator screen for debris before operating equipment. Grass clippings like these can add up and cause overheating.

Your engine works hard every day you send your machine out into the field.  In the summertime, the engine is working overtime.  In order to keep your engine cool and keep your equipment running you need to make sure the radiator is working properly and is clear of any damaging debris.  This time of year dirt, mulch and other material can get caught in the engine compartment – this is especially true of grass clippings with mowers.  If you’re sending equipment out with clogged radiators that’s going to restrict your cooling ability and lead to overheating, which can do a lot of damage and lead to expensive repairs (not to mention down time with the equipment).

As always practice caution around engine components and inspect them after the machine has cooled off.  There’s a lot of heat running through those radiators and we don’t want anyone getting injured.  If you have any questions on radiators or other engine components on your equipment give our Service Department a call at any of our locations.
