    Default B2920 Low Fuel Shut Off And Won't Even Crank?

    Hi guys, warm weather here today so I thought I would start my B2920 that I haven't run for a month or so to warm it up and charge the battery. Anyway the fuel was getting pretty low, all of a sudden it shut off after running for 10 min or so just like the key was shut off. Now the key doesn't do anything? dummy lights come on but it won't crank.
    My question, is this a safety feature? So you don't get air in the fuel system? I don't have anymore fuel on hand to try just didn't want to have worry about this all night...Thanks for the help

    Check your pto lever and make sure it is not engaged.
    Also move your hst pedal and see that your hst is in neutral.
    Good luck.

    Did it smoke or stutter before shutting down? Might be gel in the fuel.

    No smoke, just stopped. It won't even crank with the key? I tried checking the seat switch and PTO switch but nothing? I posted this wondering if it had a low fuel cut off? I will fill it up and check everything tomorrow. It did happen when I was getting off it? So we will see. Thanks for the ideas.

    Double check your pto and the hydro pedal. I have not heard of a low fuel shut off on any kubota's.

    Just had "operator present" switch fail last week. PTO and HST interlock switches ok. OP switch/relay behind dash at top left corner.

    When you run a diesel out of fuel, it will start surging. They start sucking air, and they rpm's will start to fluctuate.

    Do you hear the fuel pump or any sound when you turn the key?
