    Default Kubota M9540

    The man I put up hay for has a M9540 just like mine but a little older. It has about 800 hours on it, hydro shuttle and 12 speed.

    The hand throttle pushed all the way forward will not go above ~500 PTO RPM's. This is a major PITA as you can imagine.

    I know this tractor has been split early on in it's life due to a faulty clutch pack and assume the throttle linkage wasn't set back properly.

    Where can I adjust the linkage?

    On our L3830 that is under the dash... I would start pulling covers between the lever and the injection pump and see what moves when you pull on the lever.
    Messicks (Messick's | Dealer for New Holland, Case IH, kubota, Cub Cadet and More | Online Parts, Sales & Service.) probably has exploded parts diagrams available, or they might be able to walk you through it over the phone.

    Does the foot throttle allow it to go higher?

    Yes the foot throttle works just fine.

    Not sure about the older models and I am assuming you are talking about a cab M9540...
    On mine the hand throttle lever operates a cable that pulls down on the foot throttle.
    The adjustment is on the hand lever under the cowling.

    Well by older I mean a year or two, they all should be the same. It is actually a platform tractor but the linkage should also be the same I would think.

    Do you mean right under the leaver?

    Sorry, open-station will have completely different linkage.
    "aczlan" above has the best advice.
    The hand lever adjustment should be at the bottom end of its connection.

    So you all mean right at the injector pump.

    Is it just me or does the hood not open far enough to get to anything? Especially with the loader in the way too!!
