    It appears that the B3350 turmoil has subsided recently, and I'm wondering about other owners recent experiences. I have had no issues with mine since the reformer, DPF, sensors, etc., were replaced under warranty about three years ago. I use mine mostly for mowing but it also sees occasional...

    B1750HST Front Drive Shaft

    Lately, I've noticed noise that appears to be coming from the U joint in the front axle driveshaft. The front drive shaft is enclosed and there is no mention of any required servicing of the U joint in the Owner's Manual. Upon loosening the plastic joint between the rear driveshaft cover and...

    B3350 Emissions Warranty Extension

    Recently, Kubota has quietly extended the warranty for the reformer and related components for the life time of the machine. There is a brief discussion of this on the Orange Board, linked below. Discussion is well down on page three...

    Set-Up and PDI

    Many (most, all?) manufacturers pay their dealers for set-up and PDI. I expect that Kubota does as well, but am not certain. Anyone know conclusively? SDT

    LX Series Oversized Tires

    Yesterday, I visited one of the Kubota dealers where I do business because he had 3 new LX series tractors in stock. All were ROPS models and all had the optional over sized tires, available only on ROPS models. The 3310 had R4 tires whereas both 2610s had R14T tires. Aside from appearing...

    Sometime, in the future I plan to replace my Kubota B3350 ROPS with either the forthcoming LX3310 or, perhaps, a JD2038R. The 3310 is the replacement for the 3350 and nearly identical in size and HP while the 2038R is about 500 Lbs. heavier and has about three more PTO HP but appears to be...

    LX Series Replaces B2650 and B3350

    As expected, the new LX3310 is common rail injected. This should eliminate the regeneration issues that so plagued the B3350. Cab models have LED work lights and optional air ride seat. Both models offer single lever FEL hydraulic connections. Quick connect front hitch similar to BX models...

    B1550 TLB

    I bought my B1750 HST/MMM new in 1993, still own it, and consider it to be the best major purchase made in my life. I did not buy a FEL or BH. Yesterday two of my neighbors and I worked on a small community project creating a berm of crushed rock to allow over length vehicles to negotiate a...

    B3350 Latest

    L6060 Stall Guard

    Mowed for about four hours with the L6060 and Woods BB720X HD 6' cutter today. Parcel is mostly fescue and orchard grass, is irregular, some places steep and lots of obstacles. M9960 with either Woods BB840X 7' cutter or, especially 15' BW is not practical here due to the many obstacles. Parcel...

    1993 B1750 HST First Failure

    Folks, I guess it's time for me to stop bragging about my flawless 1993 B1750. Today, while mowing with the 60" MMM, the spring that returns the hydro pedal to neutral failed. I finished the section that I was working on by returning the pedal to neutral with my hand but decided not to try to...

    RC72-30B with B3350

    Folks, this has been a struggle. I bought my B3350 ROPS with FEL in June of 2018 but did not buy a MMM because I did not need one. Recently, I found and bought a like new, low hour RC72-30B MMM for a price that I was willing to pay, knowing that I might never use it. It was removed from a...

    Kubota Walk Behind Lawn Mower

    Today, I saw a Kubota walk behind lawn mower at my dealer. It had a 179CC recoil start Kawasaki engine with a replaceable oil filter, cast aluminum deck, and three speed transmission for the RWD.

    Recently, I stumbled across a very low hour 6' MMM in excellent condition that had been removed from a B3030 trade in. The buyer of the 3030 did not want the MMM so I bought it with all hardware and owners manual. One does not find these things separately, let alone in pristine condition. I...

    B3350 Prediction Confirmed

    This week I learned that, as predicted, the mechanically injected 1.5 L 4 cylinder engine used in the B3350, F series and high end ZTR mowers is being replaced with a common rail design. This should eliminate issues with regeneration just as Kubota has apparently resolved such. I've expected...

    Kubota Regen Warranty Policy Change?

    Nice Kubota CL Find This Morning.

    Currently, I have 4 Kubotas including an L6060 and a B1750. I am currently shopping for a B3350. Serendipitously, I received two quotes for a B3350 yesterday. Included in my quotes was a front weight bracket and 5 front weights, as I plan to use a 600 Lb. 5' rotary cutter with this tractor...

    L6060 Fuel Usage
