    It must be hard for you and others owning a Grand L 40 why someone would want to chop it down.
    I understand that. I'm not sure I do either.
    I don't expect anyone that owns one, will like that I'm...

    Well thats not too bad 13 mph, thank you for figuring that out.
  88. Re: WaxMan's Modifications to the 2013 Grand L 3240 cab

    Thanks PapaPerk

    Here are the tire specs old and new,
    As you can see below in blue, My new tires are right in line with the Kubota option on the New Grand L 5060. And it was most likely a turf...

    Thank you PapaPerk I agree with everything you have said.

    I could care less about his opinion or criticism, what I don't like is when,
    He comes off all condescending and acts like he is an authority about something he absolutely knows nothing about.

    As...

    The front axle ground clearance is 14 inches,
    This heavy duty BH92 backhoe subframe hangs down more then a B77 subframe.
    Anybody have a picture of a B77 subframe on any tractor? I believe its a...
  92. Re: WaxMan's Modifications to the 2013 Grand L 3240 cab

    You're right BULLITT about the different speeds it is lower in every gear, But I'm not sure that is a bad thing. You have a 4240 mine is a 3240 which is a little underpowered as it is as I have been...
  93. Re: WaxMan's Modifications to the 2013 Grand L 3240 cab

    I went to the dealer today picked up the tires and installed them. The tires are ok to use on this Kubota, it was checked out before I bought the tractor last year and OK'd to use.




    It is a...

    That is still an option Fred.




    Ha, You would be the last person I would take any advice from.
    Or is this just another attempt by you to get another one of my popular threads shut down, that...
  95. Re: WaxMan's Modifications to the 2013 Grand L 3240 cab

    Gee's it's not like I'm cutting the tractor in half with a torch, they bolt on and unbolt off in twenty minutes or less. Sometimes you just got to do stuff or you end up never doing anything. The way...
  96. Re: WaxMan's Modifications to the 2013 Grand L 3240 cab

    Everything you're saying makes It more like a B tractor. With a great cab.
    It's a matched set of tires off a Kubota L 3800, the tractor will have a little more torque less top end.
    Although I...
  97. Re: WaxMan's Modifications to the 2013 Grand L 3240 cab

    Ok guys, Remember, you only see this weird stuff on a WaxMan thread.

  99. Re: WaxMan's Modifications to the 2013 Grand L 3240 cab

    The cab that I drove was a B2650 not yours with the larger motor, so yours is not the popcorn machine. And that was only compared to the Grand L.
    Kubota makes a subframe for the BH77 to mount on a...

    bumperm , Yes the hose is on the other side.
    You have a BX24 and a B3350, I don't think you realize how much larger a Grand L 40 is.
    The big backhoe was fun, the thumb works great. But for the...
