    Can all tractors flip over easy?

    We have owned 8N and 9N's,easy to get hurt on one;gear drive and have to push in clutch.Got rid of them and went to HST tractors which are much safer,IMHO and have roll bars. We had a neighbor killed on one trying to pull out a stuck pick-up loaded with wood.Flipped over backwards and pinned...

    Do some more research before purchasing.I talked to the Subaru dealership,it will be on all their models,I would assume GM will do the same. Note;I retired from GM(UAW) and follow all the auto news.I have a 2017 and 2018 GM both with (non-active) OnStar and the remote and heated seats...

    That's it :1500 dollars for the First three years and then you pay more to keep it.They used to give you Onstar for a couple months hoping that you will renew. Recently talked to a Subaru dealer and they are doing the same,just tacking it on the MSRP;again for three years then you pay...

    No Kubota loaders?

    Happened to reach a salesman when I called for parts;asked about inventory and he said he had a few 50 HP tractors but no loaders(FELs) for them and didn't know when they would be available.Like everything else;hard to come by.

    Snow plow on FEL

    Depends on how big the plow is:L2250 is fairly small so no bigger than six ft.? I have had one for ten years(8') on a larger L4240 (7K) with no problems;third function for the angle.As long as the plow has a trip it will not hurt the FEL.

    Kubota L3710 Oil and Hydraulic Filter Recommendations?

    Attachment pricing

    It's a seller market for sure;can't get any products to sell;tractors ,cars ,trucks ,boats,atv ect.And they all are making a "lot of money"because of it. I.E. GM has raised the price of new trucks $5K in 2022 and still can sell every one they build( most are sold before they hit the lot)...

    We built a pole barn three years ago and another this year;Home Depot sells a 6x6"(plastic) post protector at about $33.00 ea.;that is what we used+a concrete pad under post.We are in Northern NY so get a deep frost. Years ago I tried cementing in post and it was a big mistake.

    Looking for front blade to plate attach ideas/designs

    It may be easier to find an old truck plow;7' is really not wide enough for your tractor.I was a welder/fabricator by trade and wouldn't try to fab an old rear blade. I.E. build it as short as possible.Mine works but is a little long(old truck plow($150.00).

    Also depends where you live;fill up with summer fuel then it turns cold?We have two similar sized(slightly bigger) I would bet we don't burn 100 gallons a year.Food plot prep,bush-hogging and snow removal.

    Brush Grapple on a L3710

    Normal steel pipe is schedule 40,schedule 80 is heavy and stronger. I would check lift capacity of your load(assume about 1200lb) so you want a lighter grapple;I would assume.Don't know any advantage to two cylinders. I have moved a lot of brush and logs with a single cylinder.

    I have had a Green's Machine Thumb for ten years or so;that with a tooth-bar make a decent "poor man's grapple".Doesn't open as far as a full grapple but weighs less.Best thing I ever purchased for my tractor.Still need the third function(I also use mine for a snow-plow).

    Why would an L3901 feel weaker than a 2003 L3301?
