    I'm really surprised, we've used the loaders HARD on all of our tractors without problems.

    I am guessing your dealer will want to look at it before deciding on warranty issues, do you have KTAC, sometimes they will pay for damage?

    If it does need to be ground down/ welded I would say not to have the kubota dealer do it. I would go to a welding shop. Yeah there might be someone at the shop that welds occasionally but they will charge you dealer labor rates for an inferior job. Go to a welding shop where the guy there welds on a daily basis, is probably certified and will probably have lower labor rates.

    Depending on what you were doing and other circumstances, I would say that the dealer should take care of it as a courtesy.

    Did you buy the tractor new?If so I would want a new loader.From my understanding these loaders are powder coated which is tougher than paint and it will be hard to make a repair that doesn't show.If you bought it used then it is a different story.

    Sounds like defective materials and workmanship to me. At 4 hours, they should replace the loader unless you were trying to move Mount Rushmore.

    What were you doing when it cracked? I would be looking for a new loader. After all the whole thing was built on the same line at the same time. If there was a glitch in the system that day I don't want it to be my problem.
