    Recent record....I have run my G1900 and B7800 three times in a row without breakage!

    Between me hitting trees, pins popping out and dropping anti-scalp wheels under the mower deck, a failed alternator, leaky bucket cylinders, mouse damage this winter, I have been getting on my equipment with my fingers crossed each time. Hope I did not just jinx myself.....

    Alternator failed after 30 years on my G1900S

    Had the Alternator go out on my G1900S...took out the fan belt also. It was original, so 30+ years old and over 2000 hours. Got one on Amazon, next day delivery, and picked up a replacement belt at my local dealer (Dealer was twice the price for a non-Kubota Alternator, 3 times the price for a...

    B7800 - intermittent power loss/low idle to stop

    I have had this happen a few times, to include about 1 hour ago. I was back blading the riding ring, and about 1 hour into the job the tractors idle dropped to almost nothing, it sputtered for a bit, and then died. I tried to restart a few times, and it would not get going. I checked all the...

    Tiller Finally added another attachment.....5-foot tiller from Tractor Supply for $1350

    As I really only needed one for my garden (and I guess my neighbors garden), as well as the odd garden job, I had not been able to justify the purchase. But this years bonus was pretty good, and tractor supply had one left over from last year that had a little bit of extra rust for $250...

    Landpride RTA 15 42 inch tiller - Worth it or pay more for 60 inch?

    There is the above tiller on Ebay near me at $700. It has a 6 inch offset. Is it worth it, or should I wait for a good used 60 inch to come around? (I just missed on a bushhog 60 for $1000) Thanks

    Gave up on winter today...the mower is back on

    I put the front plow on my G1900 earlier then I ever have before in preparation for winter (in early November), and wouldn't you know it no snow worth pushing. So today I took off the front plow and put the 60 inch deck back on. I expect that we will get a blizzard within the next 2 weeks:-)

    Replacing a G1900 radiator..lots o fun

    Yesterday (and the day before actually) I replaced the radiator on my G1900. It has started to leak, an although it still worked, the radiator fluid would get the screen wet and then all the grass would stick to it and the radiator itself, causing constant air flow issues. Parts cost was about...

    G1900 - knocked off 4 of 6 HST fan blades...aaarrgghh

    2 weeks ago I was running some fertilizer on the pasture with the G1900 in between removing the plow blade and mounting the 60 inch mowing deck. Some stupid little stick found the fan, and 4 blades were gone. The good news (I guess) is that the 2 blades left are on opposite sides, so the fan...

    Skid steer with rock hammer...anyone use one?

    I have a few rock ridges that run through my horse paddock, and I am thinking of knocking them down when I renovate the paddock next month. I got a quote of $450 to rent a bobcat with a rock hammer, delivery Saturday, pickup Monday AM. The rock is a hard limestone, and the ridges I would be...

    Rotary Cutter To buy a rotary mower ( bush hog) or not?

    I am going to have 4 acres of pasture to mow. I have a 60 inch deck for the B7800, and I guess I could use this to mow the pasture (I used my G1900 to mow it last year once the gras got going). This would save money. I could also get a 5 foot rotary mower, and leave the deck in the barn...

    Land Clearing and Pasture Project

    I purchased 6 acres in January 2008 to add to my 3 acre lot for the purpose of adding some pasture land for my wife's horses. In the bargain I also got 3 acres I can bow hunt on and the justification to buy a tractor. Last February I paid a local contractor $8500 to clear the pasture area...

    B7800 - FEL ontrols Freezing - Solved

    I finally got around to solving the frozen FEL control issue, thanks to many on this forum. Indeed there was water in the 2 cylinders that house the springs for the FEL down and FEL Curl In functions. Everytime it was below freezing I had to play with the controls and wait 10 minutes or so for...

    FEL Controls freezing...How to solve?

    This is my second winter with this tractor, and I am having the same problem. When it gets below freezing, my FEL controls freeze. I can usually raise the bucket and tilt the bucket forward, but the lowering and tilt away functions are frozen. If I let the tractor run 10 minutes or so and...

    G1900 blowing 10 Amp fuse

    So today I was mowing with my son on the lawn tractor (he is almost too old for that at 6) and he was fiddling with the key and he turned it off the on and the thing died on the spot. Nothing when I turned the key. It turned out the 10 Amp fuse blew, fuse for the ACC. I borrowed one from my...

    Advantage Quarter Inching Valve - Post hole digging

    I have found the quarter inching valve works well digging post holes. It allows for a slow descent into the hole (unless the auger decides it wants to visit China) and makes it easy to line up/drop the auger on the spot marketed for the whole on uneven ground. I can see how for fine grading it...

    Seat rail failure on my B7800

    Anyone else out there have a seat failure on a B7800? The seat is attached to the top of the seat distance adjuster rails by 2 bolts on each side. Well, one side of the rail failed at the bolts and the other has serious cracks, so I have to replace them both at a cost of about $60. I was a...

    Horse pasture mix.....too much clover

    I planted a new horse pasture with a pasture mix from Tractor Supply. It came in well except that there is way too much clover...clover was only supposed to be like 4% and yet it looks like 80%. I have mowed it down several times this year, and I am hoping that after the winter the grass will...

    Loader problems..'powered down' stops working

    My loader has been having a repeating (but infrequent) problem....the loader joystick will occasionally fail to activate 'bucket down' function. I will be able to push the joystick forward to activate float, but will not be able to find 'powered down'. This has happened 3 times, and each time...

    Cleaning the engine..can it be pressure washed?

    I would like to clean the engine on my G1900, as it has 1350 hours of dust and grime on it. Could I pressure wash it, or do I risk messing up the electrical et al?

    Hating my check chains - locked after box blading

    I was doing some box blading today, and after I finished I tried to hook up my rake. Much to my displeasure the check chains (screw type) had locked up on me. I suspect that the pressure from the box blade (roots and stuff) must have caused the check chains to slip a thread. Has anyone else...

    I would like to add some weight to my landscape rake and back blade. They are both woods as listed below. There is the welded-on pipe used for the stand...can this be converted to hold a rod onto which standard barbell weight can be added? Thanks

    Mystery O-ring on FEL piston near bucket?

    Soon I will stop making so many new posts, I promise. I was just looking over my tractor, and I noticed a rubber O-ring that was around the piston shaft between the bucket and the hydraulic piston. I am guessing that it belongs just inside the end of the piston body, and somehow worked its way...

    Top link keeps unscrewing

    My top link keeps unscrewing (lower implement), at a rate of several turns per 30 minutes. The toplink is the one that has a grease fitting, which I filled with grease (maybe a mistake). It has one nut close to the tractor body, but tighting this nut is ineffective as the toplink unscrews away...

    First 20 hours with new to me B7800..

    Just a few thoughts: - Goto love that 14.7 inch clearance - Nice smooth running engine that provides plenty of power - I like the FEL reinforceing bar that runs across the back of the hood. It marginally interfers with fueling, but it more than makes up for it as a grab bar when mounting...

    How do you break a FEL?

    Serious question...I have been working hard with my new to me tractor doing finish grading after a contractor and tracked CAT did the clearing.

    Prepping cleared land for a pasture

    Where to connect a chain to pull trees/brush

    Broke grease fitting on bucket..what do I do?

    I broke a grease fitting off on my FEL 402, on one of the pins at the bucket. I am hoping it is as simple as manuvering the loader pin out and getting my local dealer to help me get out the grease fitting remants/putting in a new grease fitting. Can the loader pin be backed out after removing...

    Can't get the grease gun off the grease I retarded?

    I was giving my 'new to me' B7800/FEL 402 some love today, changing oil, checking all fluids, and hitting all the grease points. I was having a heck of a time getting the grease gun off of some of the fitting. It slipped on them easy, but them when I finished pumping the grease fitting just...

    Hydraulic Toplink for B7800..can it be done?

    I am intrigue by the idea of a hydraulic top link. I know I would have to get the hydraulics to the rear of the tractor and I would use the CCM hydraulic toplink....but I have no idea how to do it or if it is even feasible. Has anyone with a B7800 (with FEL) installed a rear hydraulic block...
