    Default New (to me) 1830

    I've been on TBN for a couple years. Previously, I was on the Yanmar side of the house.

    But, as of yesterday I now own a kubota 1830 with ~200 hours.

    It came with a 54" MMM and an (unused) woods scraper blade. I had the plow in the picture mounted on my other tractor. I have laying there trying to figure out how I'm going to mount it this time.

    Thanks everyone.... I think it'll be a great fit. It looks very well built and well designed.

    A large reason to buy it, was for the hydrostat. My dad, who grew up on a farm and never lost the love of playing in the dirt, had a stroke a couple years ago. It broke his heart to not be able to drive a tractor anymore. What a joy it was to see him drive the Bx around the yard yesterday when we brought it home.

    Ductape - The Yanmar is actually sold. I have the money for it. The new owner just hasn't been able to come pick it up. Until he gets here, it'll have a nice home in my garage. No doubt I will miss the Yanmar. Those are strong, stout little tractors.

    BTW - what kinds of things should I watch out for? I read about getting a HST fan guard. I'll either be buying or making one of those this winter.

    After looking for a few minutes, I finally found the battery. I need to unhook it to weld the bucket hook on
