I traded my 22 year old 4-wheel steering riding lawn mower on this tractor. Use it for mowing/vacuuming and snow blowing. Mid mount mower and front mount snowblower.
I had to replace the secondary snowblower auger because the welded nut on the connector broke out. I also had to replace the chain sprocket which attaches to the augers.
It worked itself loose and wouldn't stay tight. I ended up using a tapered sheave sprocket. As I recall, I had to do this to the snowblower on the previous Kubota. The lever which controls the raise/lower and chute right/left was never installed correctly and lower is right, raise is left, front is right and rear is left. Never have figured out how to correct this, but used to it now.
I have had an AC compressor failure recently. Just ordered a replacement compressor and drier. This will be an interesting repair.
Really appreciate the lack of allergy problems in the summer and the comfort of the warmth while blowing snow. Thighs no longer turn blue while blowing snow.
