Re: 2011 RTV 500 Low Compression

My hunting buddy bought one used with 23 hours on it, 3 years old. Thought he got a great deal until we tried climbing uphill with us 2 and 100 lbs of corn, it got the job done but would not have...

Re: Bx25 HST fan blade - just 1 blade off

Looks like there is a fan blade directly across from the one that broke, how about breaking that one off? Would balance it quite a bit better that what you have now- that is until you can get it...

Re: new rear tires for ZD331

Nice blog, good write up on the WT300. You have not had any issues with them tearing up your lawn? I routinely get stuck like it's my job with the current turfs, these look like they would help a...

new rear tires for ZD331

Just hoping for any suggestions on replacing the rear turfs. No good deed goes unpunished- I was mowing a horse pasture for a neighbor and one tire was cut and now doesn't hold air for long. It is...

Re: Strange thing happened while mowing on my Z121S Contd.

Sometimes stuff just happens. I don't "brush hog" with my ZD, but I have no reservations about cutting 3' tall grass/weeds. Sometimes a stray branch will be there and if it is not too big it gets...

Re: New BX23 - how many hours is no longer new?

A lot of good advice being given. If this is the only Kubota dealership that is reasonably close, you have to decide what battles you want to fight. I think it is absolutely within reason to talk...

Re: Buying an L4701. 2017 vs 2018

I could be wrong here, but I didn't think these had "years" associated with them? If you buy a "new" tractor in 2015, it is a 2015 regardless of when it was made.

Before my dealership was...

Re: Caught it just right

Planted and maintaining 1500 tress on 11 acres of our farm, I swore an oath only to use my tractor for good, never evil.

Sorry about the sideways pics, they are oriented correctly in my computer???

Re: service question

If you like to fix your own stuff, nothing on your list is that difficult. I have a zd331 and have done everything on your list (except check the parking brake) at least once. Instead of paying a...

Re: B2601 hill mowing advice

Not sure how your hills are laid out, but another thing to be mindful of is turning while still on an incline. I've had a few pucker moments having to maneuver on irregular ground, granted- it is...

Re: 4WD and HST necessary for mowing?

I was new to the whole mini farm life and I use my FEL for more things than I ever imagined. Now, I can't imagine not having one.

I figured with 0% financing, I could buy the tractor I wanted and...

Re: How many of you . . .

I think one difference in this scenario is that the dealer knew there was a hidden device somewhere. If someone broke into my garage and the tractor didn't start, either the battery is dead, the...

Re: Pallet forks

How well do the bolt on ones work? I would think having weight that far out would be a large stress on the loader arms and bucket lip.

Re: High speed run, pretty scary

I notice the self braking on all terrain, I guess it depends on ones definition of a steep downhill. I live in PA where there are definitely hills and my farm has a fair share. Steep? Hard to say....

Re: High speed run, pretty scary

"HST has less "engine braking" effect than a gear-drive tractor, although it does have some. The higher the range selected, the less braking effect available. "


If my HST had more "engine" or...

Re: Kubota O percent

When I was looking for my first tractor, the used market was solid and not much savings. The 0% was a no brainer for me as it was going to be financed either way.

The market for my L3800, or...

Re: Need some trade in advice

Not sure if you have to pay sales tax, but perhaps trading it in will offset the taxable amount on the total. May not make enough of a difference if you can get quite a bit more selling private. I...

Re: Post hole auger size

I was given a 24" auger that was surplus to a public utility company. They were going to scrap it and my brother in law grabbed it for me. Hate to crab about free implements, but I probably should...

Looking to pick up an RTV1100 in the next few months, mainly for stuff around the farm and hauling.

I have seen a few used ones around me in the 2009-2012 time frame that are within my budget...
