    Kubota's quick attach on craigslist

    This is not mine... it is also NOT SSQA. You have to manually put the bottom pin in... but still "quick". It's pretty expensive since Messick sells it new for $240... Can't seem to find which model it is for... :anyone: Kubota quick hitch - farm & garden - by owner - sale It links up...

    Food plot, in a round about way...

    So kind of new to food plots... I had a tiller but my PTO cams would slip with it so I sold the tiller (instead of repairing the cams). In the trade I got a plow. Plan was (and no, I don't know what I'm doing) plow half then disk everything to see if plowing did anything useful...

    My 15 gallon PTO sprayer...

    Not much to it, I have it broken down into three parts. The boom, the pump and strainer, and the tank with the regulator. I mainly have it in 3 parts for easy cleaning but also for storage. The platform it sits on was part of a detachable carry-all that I built years ago. The tank came from...

    Son of a Ditch....

    After 10 years my road to the creek needed a little TLC. The inside ditch filled up and the water was cutting into the road bed. I didn't take any before photos because I didn't have time. :hissyfit: I had put this project off thinking it was going to be a PITA. I loaned out a rear blade...

    Home electric problem / question help

    We have a new house at the farm, with new electrical service, 200 amp. Our problem is we "pop"/trip GFCI breakers like there is no tomorrow (4-5 of them, 2-3 times a weekend). They are not over loaded, in fact rarely is anything actually "On" those circuits when they trip. We are getting an...

    Traction Theoretical traction question...

    just a game, Which tractor would win in a pulling contest, a L2501 with Ag/R1 tires or L3901 with R4 tires on Grass (or even gravel). Tractors weigh the same... On Pavement, yes, the L3901 would win. What's your guess as to who would win?

    Good deals from Craigslist, that will not sell here!

    Not sure if this will work but I see "good" deals in my area that would sell up north (or else where). I AM NOT affiliated with this at all... This looks brand new for $1250: Skid Steer hydraulic blade heavy duty

    fuel leak on L2800

    I wonder if this hose should go over this "bump" (see orange arrow in photo). This leak just started and dripped pretty constant, left a small pool. Only leaked when the tractor was running!!! Just a heads up. I tried to push the hose on more but it would not move. I tighten down the clamp...

    Hydraulic Top Link came apart... Failed!

    I was actually heading back to the house to sharpen the blades under my mower deck when the tail wheel slammed to the ground. Glad I'm not having to post this in the safety forum (no one ever looks there!!). So, is this just a matter of unscrewing the top and removing in order until I get to...

    structural help for a foot bridge...

    Need some quick help. I need to turn this 20' old fire escape ladder into a 20' bridge to hold up a 180 pound graduate student. The "brackets" were used to hold it to the building. I was hoping to either use a 20 foot flat stock and bolt it to it (#1). ...or (#2) I can use 1/4" angle iron or...

    Tell me about 49 cetane diesel "high performance"

    Is this something I want to try? My local gas station has "high performance" diesel (49 cetane) - I looked on wikipedia, seems CA and some counties in TX requires it (??) Is this good for my tractor or will I burn it up? I have not looked at the price for it yet. I wouldn't mind paying a...

    Step for the right side of a Kubota L2800

    First off... this was a simple and easy thing to build (ok really super simple compared to the rest of the stuff on TBN ;)) I wanted to build the step for a while that may protect the HST filter (a little). I get on and off from the right side more than I should... the FEL joystick was a...

    3-Point Hitch Poll for Jerky Hitch models!!!

    I know this thread might not go anywhere... and it seems we've beat this horse before. Hypothetically, *IF* you have a jerky hitch, how much would you be willing to pay to have your jerky hitch "fixed" (adjusted or replaced) on your L2800/L3200/L3400/L3700/L3800? Just wondering... is $500...

    Putting drain pipe underground with a middle buster

    Wanted to redirect the down spouts to the side of the hill. I had to make several dozen passes to dig down enough... had to add extra weight and my middle buster has two sets of hole so I could drop it down an extra 6" (which is a good thing ;)) My boss was dogging me all day and checking up...

    Needle valve vs. motor spool

    I don't have a motor spool but would like to power a hydraulic motor using a spring to center spool with detent. I was planning to use the valve in detent with a needle valve to start and stop the motor (I don't mind if it's slow). I would have the needle valve closed, put the valve into...

    Disabled clutch safety switch, Why not?

    Heavy Duty Top Link installed on L2800...

    I was not going to post this mainly because I don't think kubota sell them anymore. Heavy Duty Top Links were to help support the tractor's top link when using a 3ph backhoe (before they had a sub-frame). kubota figured out that they had to have the sub-frame and this became obsolete. I...

    TnT Hydraulic connection??? BSPPM vs. NPTM

    So I got the toplink from surplus center, description reads that the "Ports: 3/8" BSPP" but it also says that it "Ships with two 3/8" BSPPM to 3/8" NPTM connectors". :confused: I never used BSPP... Don't know what it looks like but when I screw in what I think is BSPP into the lock valve...

    3 POSITION DETENT KIT???

    I am wanting to know what it would be used for??? I think it would be take the place of a bungie cord to hold to valve open. I assume it's NOT to put the spool into float mode (I'm guessing it would have stated "Float" but I don't know for sure). Also, would this work for a hydraulic motor...
