    Thanks. Really happy to hear you enjoy this stuff. I find it so hard to believe there's so much interest in it.

    Well that's so cool and I appreciate that. Tractor manufactures are missing the ball on their tractors. There's so much more that could be done to hook a potential customer yet they still stick with the basics. Thanks for commenting.

    4shorts one does have to wonder how much the guy with a $100K+ boat would spend for a tricked out tractor.

    I think he is suggesting there may be a marked for "tricked out" tractors. If people have enough disposable income for a high end boat, what might they spend for a 4Short's Custom tractor?

    Ha! There you go. I didn't see it that way. I just didn't understand the question. Might be a Canadian thing or wifey is indeed feeding me stupid pills I enjoy 3vo's posts. He's been very supportive of this thread but I just didn't understand what he meant. If that was indeed the explanation I'm sure there might be some interest in some of the mods depending on the usage of how they use their tractors. I got one local tractor owner that want me to take their tractors and let me got to it and do whatever I want. It's a grand L series tractor but I'd like to do something totally different this time around because I've already modded a 4240 and our 5740 but we'll see

    Man me too. I'd love to get my paws on a Kioti. They are a nice machine to put a few additions to. I guess the first for you would be a stack conversion? I'd like to do a double acting stack conversion. install the stack with an exhaust valve on the lower end so when you didn't want the stack in place it could be easily removed if you wanted to go into a wooded area then flip the valve to direct the exhaust to the lower exhaust pipe.

    For those who haven't followed any on my kubota 5740 mods here's a break down of what was done.



    Custom additions to GL5740 HSTC3 :

    - Modified the FEL tubes for storage area's by machining custom caps for the tubes.

    - Modified the truck plow to adapt to the tractors FEL.

    - Modified the bucket by adding a top guard and hooks.

    - Added custom built emergency light bar and LED emergency light to the top of the cab.

    - Added L.E.D. strobe lighting to the rear of the snow blower and built custom boxes to house them in.

    - Added custom build boxes to the plow so Super Nova L.E.D. strobe lights could be installed adding extra lighting to the FEL side on when plowing.

    - Added a reverse beeper. (not a small task on these tractors)

    - Added a reverse camera with a color 7" LCD monitor that is also inferred and has a built in microphone in the camera it's self. The camera was adapted to the top rear light making it appear that it was always there.

    - Gauge pods were added to each side of the LCD monitor and an ambient air temperature and digital volt gauge was added to each pod.

    - Two RAM mounts were added in the cab for mounting various items like my phone and MP3 recorder. Also a new mount was just installed for the new IPhone 4

    - A moisture sensing system was adapted to the wiper system so when I'm using the tractor the wipers will work automatically when snow or water is present on the windshields. That way I don't need to be switching the wipers on and off myself. The system takes care of that for me.

    - Mud flaps were added to the front fenders to help keep the water off the front glass when traveling the machine.

    - All powder coated upper mud flap hardware was removed and replaced with stainless hardware.

    - All common steel hardware that was present on the snow blower was replaced with stainless steel to prevent corrosion.

    - Some custom badging and company lettering was added to the tractor.

    - Custom trim was added to the rear fenders to give it a more refined look.

    - Added a parking brake warning light. Well a better one that came with the tractor

    - The rear factory lollipop top lights that came with the tractor were replaced with L.E.D. lollipop lights.

    - Added a few cool rubber holders on the snow blower to hold a shovel and bar.

    - A LED light was added to the cab step so it's easy to see where to place your feet in the dark.

    - Fabricated a custom coffee mug holder.

    - Designed and fabricated a front bumper with quad flashing LED lights and shackle Center.

    - Fabricated an aluminum forward light bar and installed a LED light on it including two side mounted LED alley lights

    - Designed and built an LED 4X4 display indicator for the cab.

    - Designed a custom LED mount for the snowblower chute. Installed two LED lights on the chute so I could early see where the snow is going.

    - Designed and fabricated an exhaust stack conversation kit to for the Kubota Grand L 5740 HST-C3.

    - Replaced the stereo system with a Sony X-Plod and Infinity speakers.

    - Installed an air horn.

    - Added a power plug for charging cell phone at the dash.

    - Added rear wheel weights and fabricated custom Center caps for them.

    - Custom fitted the floor to accept a new Grammer Air Ride seat.

    - Added a rear view mirror

    - Added a shock to the front snow blade to eliminate blade recoil after hitting obstacle.

    - Fabricated covers to cover up the spring adjusters on the front blade

    I think it sounds great, when can you start?
