    Flail Mower Oversized flail for undersized tractor ok?

    It will work just fine. Probably won't be able to cut very dense stuff without bogging but just go a little bit slower and it should take care of it. It may surprise you as well and take a lot bigger cuts than expected. All depends on what's being cut. EDIT: Also, side shift implements (flail...

    Looking for a dump trailer like this one for a Kioti DK6010SE.

    Holy crap are those trailers expensive. That Kioti DK6010 would get 5500 kgs (12000 lbs) of towing capacity for braked trailers over here, and would most likely get either a 4 or 5 metric Ton trailer similar to this one in the picture below. Built to last and to take a beating, 3 way dump bed...

    Kubota catastrophic engine failures

    I still can't get over the fact that Kubota cheaped out so much on such a sensitive fuel system. Considering how they overprice their tractors so much, would it hurt them so much if they include a simple water in fuel sensor and a light on the dash or an error code? That simple gadget could've...

    Who want to chat about plasma cutters?

    Bough one of those cheap 40A plasma cutters (<180€) on Lidl a couple years ago. Lidl is a grocery store but it has its own line of tools called Parkside. Anyway, that thing has been an absolute trooper and has saved me loads and loads of cutting discs for the angle grinders. I'm sure the same...

    Beware of Catalytic Converter Thefts

    Living on a country where fuel theft is a daily occurrence, I'll say right away, nothing will stop them. If it's locked, they will drill the tank,get it that way and cause you a lot more expense. If you happen to leave a piece of equipment anywhere, the next day you'll find an empty fuel...

    rear 3pt arms drop overnight?

    My 3 pt also stays up pretty much forever. I'm sure it drops maybe 1 or 2 mm but it's even noticeable. The top link and remote valve only drops a little bit but that related to an used cylinder for the top link that has a tiny rod seal leak.

    Why isn't anyone talking about the Deutz Fahr 5080d?

    I don't know for sure, but it may have the Hydraulic shuttle on the European models that get either the 15x15 transmission or the 30x30 transmission with Creeper that does 40 km/h. From what I've seen, they don't offer those transmissions options in the US.

    Yanmar 155 hydraulic pump for loader

    A quick search on Google brought me this pump on Surplus Center. The numbers match, letters don't. EDIT: This one is CW and you need CCW.

    From what I've seen on Facebook groups, people are very happy with that tractor. If I remember correctly, the very first ones had a slight issue with harsh engagement of the wet clutches but that was quickly fixed with an upgraded transmission control module.

    Congrats! That a nice tractor! Go over all the fluids just to make sure. With dealers selling faster than they can have the tractors, you never know if something got overlooked. Also check lug nuts and loader mount bolts since those are typically dealer installed and may have not been torqued...

    Water in fuel causes $10,000 damage to my Kubota Grand L6060

    Well that really sucks. I would've imagined that such an expensive tractor with such a sensitive fuel system would at least have a Water in fuel sensor that would send a warning on the dash.

    Load leveler

    Self leveling can also be done hydraulically, using to shorter cylinder mounted above the lift cylinders and then tied into the dump and lower circuit of the loader. This one is a bit harder to recreate than the mechanical linkage. I can't see a reason to have the need to turn off the self...

    BX2200 4WD Click/Clunk noise and feeling

    It could be the roll pins coming out of the u-joint and hitting the cover. I had that happening to me on a an older B7000. It actually pierced a couple holes on the cover and I had to remake the cover.

    New (used) AGCO Challenger Farm Tractor

    That's very nice and handy. I've been contemplating adding an electric actuator on mine for that same reason. By the way, that tractor is a beast. So much more tractor and loader than the Kubota. I noticed on first picture of post #52 the lower bar on the quick attach seems bent or it's just...

    Remote Hydraulics for Backhoe

    It will work just fine. A bungee cord or something holding similar the lever in place and you're good to go. Just make sure you're feeding the backhoe from the pressure side of the backhoe control valve, since it's easy to reverse with the remotes.

    Advice for 1980 Kubota L345

    Looks like a nice and clean machine. I say check the basic stuff. Check all the fluids and filters, see how it looks and depending on that, do a full fluid and filter service. Or just do it right away and have the peace of mind. Definitely check the coolant. Depending on where it came from, it...

    TYM T474 electrical mystery

    Check the seat safety switch. The brakes won't affect the start but the seat switch does, so jumping on the brakes could move the seat enough that would make it work right.

    Diagnosing Engine Rattling/Tapping Noise

    I think I would just take the belt off and spin the water pump by hand. Granted if it's bearings, it would make a lot more noise under the tension of the belt but just spinning it by hand should give a good feel too.

    Comparison Case IH Farmall 75A or Deutz 5080D?

    I forgot to mention this on my previous post. European tractors tend to be a little bit on the tight side for the operator area. People like/need the tractors to be very compact so compromises had to be made.

    Recurring Oil Leak at Rear Remote Valves

    It may have a cracked valve block, which can be hard to detect but I'm a bit confused with the valve in detent to run the stump grinder part. What kind of stump grinder is this? Doesn't stump grinders have one or two double acting cylinders to move from side to side and up and down?

    JD 4720 Hydraulics

    This is a common misconception. The HST won't steal any flow from the rest of the hydraulic system. It's just it's own pump and motor tied together and only things shared between the rest of the hydraulic system and the HST is the fluid and the power plant. You'll have roughly 12 GPM on the...

    It will most likely have splines with some odd number of splines at least. Typically, tractor manufacturers use some odd combination of shaft and mounting flange on hydraulic pumps that make it hard to find replacement aftermarkets or simply upgraded (bigger) pumps. Simpler and cheaper router...

    Which 3rd Function Kit to buy for Kioti DK6010SE?

    Sure looks like an easy fix would be simply flip the cover 180 degrees and run the hoses up instead of down. The point of the cover is to protect from stuff coming the ground, like sticks, branches. Not from an hail storm coming from above.

    I'm in the same position as you. I'm not a fan of red either, but ended up with a red tractor regardless. And if I didn't go with the Branson, I would've most likely end up with another red tractor as well, an Antonio Carraro. 😅
