    Re: Necessary Attachments on the L3200?

    For me the telescoping stabilizers was a must. That what I've been used to on the Grand L and it was the first mod I installed on my L3200. I guess it's what you get used too. But they saved me alot...

    Re: Loaded Rear Tires Without Loader

    Just plain water would be alright here in the deep south. I know very few people that even worry about using freeze protection in their tires. I only used 1/2 gallon in each tire, so that wouldn't do...

    Re: Loaded Rear Tires Without Loader

    If by "corrosive liquid" you mean Calcium Chloride I totally agree, even though Kubota states to use for freeze protection. However straight water with antifreeze is better IMO.. I know of a 30 year...

    Re: Loaded Rear Tires Without Loader

    Considering it RARELY gets below 32 Deg here in Louisiana, most people never run any type of freeze preventor in their loaded tires. I threw 1/2 Gallon in each side, and that will be plenty for the...

    Re: Loaded Rear Tires Without Loader

    I actually had time this morning to work on the tractor. I managed to load both rear tires without any problem. Used a old Milton adapter we had from years ago and a hand transfer pump for the...

    Re: Loaded Rear Tires Without Loader

    I think I've made up my mind that this weekend I'll load the rear and try it out. Ive had other tractors loaded and it seems the overall perfomance was good...

    Re: Loaded Rear Tires Without Loader

    And your reply brings up another question. Considering Calcium will cause damage to the wheels long term, then why the heck does Kubota recommend using it... This is straight out of the manual..

    Re: Loaded Rear Tires Without Loader

    I'm assuming you don't have a loader because you didn't mention it.. Good Info... I do very little bushogging in the winter, and plan to do none this winter. Even without loaded rear tires, I still...

    Re: Loaded Rear Tires Without Loader

    I kind of agree on this. Whatever liquid is in the tires is weight transfered to the ground unless you get one tire up in the air. Loader/frame weights is actual weight on the tractor. I can also see...

    Re: Loaded Tires Without Loader

    As per my original post I will only be loading the Rear Tires. It is correct that the front tires ARE NOT to be loaded according to my manual. I do have weight on the front for ballast, but the rear...

    Loaded Rear Tires Without Loader

    Can anybody shed some light on the Pro's/Cons of loading the rear tires on my L3200? I don't have a Loader but the extra weight would come in handy especially pulling/boxblading. I know the old...

    I know for certain that If I had to watch the cutter instead of keepin my eye on my tractor, I'd be ripping tpost's up left and right. I'd much rather keep my eyes ahead instead of straining my neck...

    Mowing Re: What size Bush Hog, 5' or 6'?!

    Considering you have the same identical tractor as mine I will give my .02. Although my L3200 WILL pull a 6' with ease, I've found the 5' to be the better between the two. I like that the 5' doesn't...
