    L6060 50 hour service, hydraulic filter changes

    Despite what the manual says, I changed both filters and oil when I did the 50 hour service on my L6060. You will lose some oil when you remove the filters but not most of it. You will lose a bit less if you extend all cylinders before removing the filters.

    B1550 advice/opinions please

    It has about 675 hours now and will be for sale within a month or so as I am relocating across the country. Forgot to mention that I added tubes to the front tires 15-20 years ago when they would no longer reliably hold air tubeless.

    B1550 advice/opinions please

    I bought a B1750HST with PS, Bi-Speed Turn, and 60" MMM (with very rarely used powered grass catcher) new in 1993. No FEL. The 1750 is essentially the same machine as the 1550 aside from a bit more displacement and HP. In the 30+ years that I have owned it, it has needed absolutely nothing...

    3-Point Hitch L6060 with 78” titan offsett flail mower

    Follow the implement limitations in your Kubota Operator's Manual and you will be OK. 1,600 Lbs. is well above the Kubota recommendations for flail mowers, offset or otherwise.

    3-Point Hitch L6060 with 78” titan offsett flail mower

    I would not put that mower on my L6060. Operator's Manual specifies 72" and 1,100 Lbs. max for flail mower. Lots of offset weight beyond recommended limitations.

    Kubota Parts Pricing out of Control

    B2650 vs B3350SUHSD

    B2650 vs B3350SUHSD

    Some M series models, e.g., M9540, M9960, others, have weak PTO brakes. PTO brake was redesigned to be more robust late in the M9960 model run but there is no program to assist owners of earlier models with failed PTO brakes, requiring expensive split to repair.

    B2650 vs B3350SUHSD

    Though it took much too loong, the B3350 issues have largely been resolved. Yes, operators do need to read the Operator's Manual and follow the instructions. FWIW, The B3350 is the only tractor available from any manufacturer with a lifetime, transferrable "emissions" warranty.

    Kubota B3350 wont start.

    Actually, Kubota did addrerss the weak PTO brake issue with the M series tractors.

Accordingly the latest M9960 tractors have the more robust brake as do M5 series...

    Kubota B3350 wont start.

    Yes, Kubota did finally step-up and implement a so-called "lifetime emissions warranty" for the B3350 and other Kubota equipment using the same reformer-equipped engine as the B3350. This "warranty" is company policy and has not been publically divulged. The "warranty" is lifetime (I believe...

    Bought a New L3902, turned out to be a 2019

    Not uncommon, and why I never buy froom the lot but rather insist upon ordering a new unite despite dealer stock. More than likely, the old unit had aged inventory pricing from Kubota which the dealer pocketed.

    L3560 with cab. How would I know if I'm close to rolling over?

    Without lots of experience, you cannot know. Yes, an inclinometer will indicate incline but you still do not know at what incline your tractor will roll. Low CG with the belly mower, and the 72" mower will just about assure that it will slide down the hill well before rolling.

    Mowing what is a good rough cut rear mower deck for a B7100 4X4?

    Most any common brand of cutter should suffice. Used 48" cutters are not common but do become available from time to time. Be certain that the mower that you buy is not a heavy, HD model, which will likely be too heavy for your tractor.

    Mowing what is a good rough cut rear mower deck for a B7100 4X4?

    4' and not too heavy for rough cut mower. 42" if conditions are especially tough. Regardless of brand, you will need to verify that PTO shaft is not too long so as to damage your tractor. Shortening PTO shaft is often necessary with small tractors.

    New LX3310

    Currently, the B3350 is the only tractor with a lifetime "emissions" warranty. When this was implemented I decided to keep mine.

    Carry All Attachment

    Nice, well-made HD unit. My carry-all is my most used tool. So important to me that it is mounted on a dedicated tractor and never comes off. Tractor and carry-all serve as my quad. I actually sold my 2017 RTVX1100C with 11 hours on it after 4 years (for $2K more than I paid for it) because I...

    From mow to snow.

    I remove/service mowers from all of my tractors once each fall before servicing the tractors and installing FELs. The B1750 gets a back blade and F & R chains. The B3350 gets a front blade, ballast box and sometimes F & R chains. M9960 and L6060 get FELs only. Cast iron stays on year-around...

    Grand L6060 2 year review

    I seriously considered the 4066 before buying my L6060. 4066 also has EPTO which I wanted but R4 tires only available with one piece, non adjustable (aside from side-to-side) rear wheels. Deal breaker was arrogance and general unhelpfullness of JD dealer.

    Where to buy rear suitcase weights for L3560

    LX3310 4 cylinder engine

    Agreed. Absolutely love my L6060 ROPS model (cannot use cab models due to routine driving around and beneath trees). Only complaint that I have is the vulnerability of the third function hydraulic hoses beneath the tractor and behind the right front tire.

    LX3310 4 cylinder engine

    Yes, the small 4 cylinder diesel enginie has a high idle, probably due to the short stroke. Yes, HST whine is annoying, much more so in cab versions. HST whine is not objectionable in my B3350 ROPS model and almost non existant in my L6060 ROPS model. Gear whine from my M9960 12X12 hydraulic...

    Buying Advice No MMM on B2601 with factory spacers?

    Spacers are not compatible with the MMMs with some (all?) tires. Spacers are needed to install tire chains. These two issues are independent of each other. Trust the Kubota website.

    30HP vs 26HP 60" bush hog?

    I can remove or install the MMM on either my B1750 or B3350 in about 20 minutes, though I do so only fall/spring. I drive the tractor/mower onto a couple of thicknesses of 2X6/8 to raise tractor enough for easy removal/installation from right side. Would not expect to do so without a smooth...

    30HP vs 26HP 60" bush hog?

    I have no issues removing/installing implements from/to my B3350 with the exception of my ballast box which I need to set onto a couple of 4x4s as the lift arms do not lower quite far enough otherwise. I'm not a fan of quick hitches for multiple reasons.
  154. S

    30HP vs 26HP 60" bush hog?

    As always, sizing a cutter for power depends upon what you plan to mow, how close you plan to mow it, how often you plan to mow it, how fast you expect to travel while mowing, and terrain. 20 PTO HP is pushing things for a 60" cutter unless conditions are quite good. Unless you are just...

    My L6060 has the small aluminum HST pedal. HST is servo assisted so little effort is needed. I'm not fond of the pedal because, among other things, it is too far from the floorboard. Yes, I've become somewhat used to it over time, but, in my opinion, the engineer that designed it, along with...

    Would a zero turn be faster than a B2601?

    B3350 REGEN PROBLEMS & FIX

    Logically, it is not possible to "know" something that has not been conclusively proven. Accordingly, "I do know that "goodness" and "corporate hearts" is an oxymoron" is irrational. That said, it is perfectly rational to think such things and I certainly find no fault with such thinking. SDT
