    Rotary Cutter  Bought a Brush Cutter

    Been looking for a Brush Cutter and stumbled onto this Ford 901 60" cutter for $100. I built a swivel top link bracket and hitched it to my Kubota B2910. Immediately realized I couldn't lift it high enough to suit me. I could only get the runners about six inches off the shop floor. So...

    B2910 Diff Lock

    I bought my B2910 used with 320 hours. The Diff Lock is difficult to engage. Takes considerable heel pressure on the pedal and it seems to only engage in the last 1/4 inch of pedal travel. If I push the pedal until resistance is felt and stop, it does not engage. Only additional pressure to...

    Your Tractor's Age????

    Just read a post from Birdhunter1 about his purchase of a 17 year old tractor and whether it was vintage or not. From that I got an idea that it might be interesting to hear the age of your tractor. For those that have multiples, we don't need to hear about all of them. To set a fair playing...

    R&B Mfg Inclinometer

    I am currently in Iraq. My wife just bought us a Kubota B2910 primarily for mowing. It's considerably bigger than our JD 455 so she is apprehensive about using it on slopes. I had saw the advertisements for R&B Manufacturing's tiltmeter product. Today I sent an email to Mr Hedgecock about...

    B3030 brake pedals

    My first post is gonna be a stupid one, I can just tell!!! I'm shopping for a compact tractor and by buddy keeps telling me to look at Kubota. Looking at the pictures on this site, it appears the hydrostatic pedal is on the right side. It also appears the individual brake pedals are on the...
