Kubota B8200 HST-D 4WD Posted by rayman on 02/13/2013

19 hp, hydrostatic drive, 4 wheel drive, 2 speed live PTO, with BF 300 front end loader. This is a little work horse. I don't know how many hours it has as the hour meter cable was missing when I bought it, but it has was well used.

My only problem with it is the steering shaft assembly and the whole steer box is obsolete, and mine is broken. I was able to get new balls and tubes for the steering ball nut from Weaver Compact Tractor and am in the process of rebuilding the steering box now 2/13/13.

But if the the worm gear shaft and ball nut were damaged I would be looking at trying to retrofit another steering box in. I have not found any used steering parts or complete steering boxes for B8200s.
