    Does a 3ph land plane need to have adjustable blades?

    I'm eventually going to get a land plane for my Kubota L4060, but I'm not ready to part with the green yet. Nonetheless, I'm always looking for a used one on Facebook Marketplace, and today, for the first time, I came across a used Everything Attachments 6' land plane for sale (albeit, still...

    New Southern land leveler - who makes them and where are they made? - Opinions please. Same for Catawba Attachments

    I need to buy a 6' land leveler to maintain my 800' driveway. I'm currently using an old, partially functioning, pretty beat-up Gannon rollover box blade. I can't spend what it costs or wait out the lead time for an EA land plane, and I want something heavier duty than a J-Bar-type land...

    Homemade Chainsaw Carrier - Yet another idea

    Well, I've been wanting to rig up a contraption for carrying my chainsaw on my Kubota L4060 so I wouldn't have to put it in the bucket when I'm in the woods cutting up downfallen trees. I know there are kits on the market like SawHaul, but I didn't want to spend $180 on the thing and I'm not...

    Surprised by need for rear ballast with L 4060 in this situation

    I recently bought an L4060. I have a 4000 lbs SS QA fork attachment that I used with the L48 TLB that I sold before buying the L4060. I know it’s heavier than what one might normally buy for that size tractor, but I had it already. I have some units of hardwood lumber that I have moved around...

    Fluid in hydraulic cylinder is milky but in rest of tractor, fluid is clear.

    I have a Kubota L48 TLB. The dipper stick cylinder on the backhoe began to leak pretty badly about a month ago and today I removed it to take it to the dealer for a rebuild. I disconnected the 2 hydraulic hoses from the cylinder, knocked out the 2 pins attaching the cylinder to the backhoe...

    Kubota L48 hydraulic quick connects for backhoe - can they be used to power 3PH hydra

    I’m going to try to put together an after-market 3PH linkage for my Kubota L48 TLB (it didn’t come with one) and the factory linkage is over $2000. I’d like to include a hydraulic top link and I’m wondering if I can use the quick-connect ports that normally supply the backhoe to feed the...

    I have an 800' long gravel driveway that hadn't been cleaned up in 6-7 years. I just bought a used little John Deere 670 that I intend to use solely for maintaining the driveway. I also have Kubota L48 TLB. The JD 670 is 18.5 hp and it came with a 4' grading blade on which I can change the...
