    Default What is the weight of a LA481

    I have a 3010 kubota (1999) and have a factory loader LA481. I am trying to figure out my towing weights for the tractor and can't seem to find the weight for the loader by itself. I came up with 2,950 lbs for the tractor. I have a 3,000 lb trailer and a towing capacity of 8,300 (2001 Tahoe) so I need to know the weight of the loader so I can calculate what other attachments I can hook tot the 3-point hitch and trailer safely.

    I am sure someone out there has the manual cause thats the only place I ever see them listed.

    But just a rough idea, it is real similar is size to my LA463 on my 3400. And it is listed at just under 1000 for the frame and ~260ish for the bucket.

    So I'll say its in the 1300 ballpark.

    Tractor data also lists that tractor in the 2700# range. So I think you are a few hundred pounds over unless you added something.

    Adding the loader and you are in the 4000lb range. When you say you have a 3000lb trailer, I assume you mean thats what it weighs and it is rated to haul way more than that right?? If so, you have 5300lbs you can load on her. And I think that tractor, loader, and choice of implement will be well within spec.

    I have a 2001 L3010 with a LA482 loader. I would guess it would be close to the LA481.
    The LA482 minus the bucket is approximately 835 lbs according to my manual.
    The bucket are: 60" square 212 lbs, 66" square 216 lbs, HD Round 60" 308 lbs, Light Material 70" 250 lbs

    My L3010DT (gear) is 2750 lb plus 640 lbs for loaded 12.4X24 AG tires if you have them
