    Who makes a synthetic trans fluid like Kubota's SUDT2?

    I just love Kubota SUDT2 in my Kubota with a hydrostat and other one with a hydraulic shuttle. It performs well, warms up quick and is just perfect. Surely, Kubota doesn't make oil so there must be a refiner that makes this or some other branded product that I can buy. I can't seem to find one...

    Can I use a slip clevis on transport chain for tie down?

    In learning about hauling small farm tractors, I can't find out if it's Ok to use a slip clevis on the end of a binder chain to tie down a corner of a farm tractor. I never thought it was but in watching YouTube videos have seen guys just hooking the slip clevis hook into a factory OEM tie down...

    Do you charge your battery before winter?

    They seem to last a lot longer that way. 12 years out of my 2005 B7800 battery.

    Shoud I trust Chinese chain and ratchet binders for hauling?

    I need to buy some chain and binders to haul a couple of tractors. One is 5500 lbs and the other 8000 lbs. I need chain but have a couple of Chinese ratchet binders as well as two USA made lever binders. There are two concerns for me. One, is Chinese grade 70, 5/16" chain OK or should I pony up...

    Does the M7040 have a sump screen to clean?

    Trans oil is due for a change and in getting ready thought to see if there is a sump screen I need to clean. Nothing turned up but I thought it was important enough to ask of the collected wisdom of the TBN. Anybody know?o

    How do you chain down your 50 HP tractor for transport?

    I haul farm stuff using four straps with one on each corner and extras on implements. Have done it for years and it's no big deal for a few miles on the back roads with an 18' trailer. I have hooks (clevis) on tractors so it's easy to hook up. Now I need to make some longer trips and am...

    I think there was a ghost in the garage last night.

    We live in the middle of nowhere and before dark we heard a distinct and unique sound in the garage. We couldn't figure it out so dismissed it. We have a locked garage, deadbolts, multiple dogs, way off the road; you name it. Dogs bark at everything but never moved. The next morning, we...

    Why are there so few rear discharge F Kubota mowers around?

    After John Thomas explained things, I'm convinced I would rather have a rear discharge F2680 as opposed to a side discharge one. Trouble is, I can't find one for sale. It's not that I have to have a rear discharge. It won't be a primary mower but one to go under evergreen trees and into corners...

    How long to wait before towing with a new truck?

    How many miles to wait before you tow a trailer with a new truck? The manufacturers used to say 500 miles but I've heard everything from nothing to more. We might get a new Toyota Tundra V8 and just trying to guestimate things. Load would be 7000 lbs.

    Should I swap my airchucks from general ones to auto ones?

    I have a few air tools and have the general use air connections for everything. Now I have learned you get a much better air flow from the larger diameter "automobile sized" air chucks and wonder if I should switch over to those. It's a pretty simple process to replace. The benefit I'm looking...

    Pics of a Case IH 125 with monster flotation tires

    How to measure the width of a truck frame?

    I have a Ford farm truck I want to get a flatbed body for and most beds are for frames of 32" or 34". How is that measured? My frame is 33 3/4" outside edge to outside edge of the frame and 31" center to center. Do I have a 32", 34" or neither? Thanks in advance.

    Pictures how I touch up the paint after adding bucket hooks.

    . Here's my way to touch up the paint after the grinding and addition of bucket hooks. These are on a Kubota and I had a shop weld them on for me. The welds look way better in person, without paint and no 5X magnification. Since I like a support plate welded to the bucket and then the hook...

    New Firestone radials on M7040.

    Here on some pics of new radials on the rear of my M7040. I would have bought front as well but can't get the 9.5x24 in radial. Maybe later. These are Firestone "All Traction DT" and I like that pattern better than the "Performer 85" radial series that has a slightly shallower tread and...

    We've had enough of television programming.

    We've about had it with broadcast television. $125 a month for satellite TV and 95% is cr@p but we watch it anyway out of inertia. Worse, I'm forced to pay for programming that I detest funding and yet it's part of a forced package that insults anyone's intelligence. Our Internet speed is fast...

    Will an M6800-M7040-etc fit on a 14' trailer with the bucket off?

    A friend wants to know and I'll bet someone here knows the length of an M6800--M7040 or similar with a loader on. He figures to put the bucket in the back of the truck so that should make it within a few inches. He also thinks he could hang the loader arms off the edge a few inches. I wish he...

    Ethanol gas, Seafoam additive and storage or starting issues.

    What is the oil level in the front hubs of M7040 or similar size Kubota?.

    In filling the front hubs of my M7040, what is the oil level you should fill the front hubs to? The owner's manual is fuzzy and just says to fill until you can see it but the wheel is in the way and you can't see anything. Would it work just to open the check hole on the axle and since the axle...
