    Broken fan blade

    Out on my 2021 MX5400 in my woods cutting brush and had a small stick come up underneath and shear off all the fan blades. I'm within my 2 year Kubota warranty but I would be surprised if that covers it. I'm pretty sure my home insurance will cover it but will see where the repairs goes...

    Sticker shock

    I received an email from Kubota about their 84 mo, 0% financing on L60 tractors so for sheets and giggles I built a L4760 HST w/ cab on their website. After adding all the options I would like I came to $76,500. Woah.

    What if....?

    I mulled over the possibility of selling my tractor and maybe implements and just hire out jobs as I need. I bought a L3301 back in 2019 and in two years after I sold it I put 100 hrs on it. Most of that 100 hrs was making a walking trail through my woods. I then upgraded to an MX5400 and...

    Operating tractor in 4wd all the time?

    Bringing a discussion from a Kubota thread here. I've heard different opinions on operating a tractor in 4wd. My last L3301 which I only racked 91 hrs before selling I kept the 4wd engaged all the time. 100% of my work was on dirt or grass. I'm curious what of others opinions and...

    Widening tires

    Before I am to take possession of a MX5400 I talked to the salesman and he said he would recommend widening the front tires as widening the rears would put them outside the front bucket footprint. I am going with R1 tires and the rears will be filled. I wasn't aware you could widen the front...

    MX5400: Help with options

    I'm going through the Kubota website and building my MX5400 with options. I decided to wait on the TopNTilt kit and not do the draft control or the bolt on cutting edge (I will get through Everything Attachments). Biggest question is should I go for 2 or 3 rear remotes? Here is how the...

    Bxpanded Hydraulic Pressure Test & Adjust Kit

    Got my Hydraulic Pressure Test & Adjust Kit from BXpaned in the mail today. Came with pressure gauge and 3 shims. Where the **** do I connect the pressure gauge? I'm assuming it's the quick disconnect with the white rubber cap? As that is what the instructions that came with the kit indicate.

    Ideas to protect the hydraulic filter?

    I bent my hydraulic filter for the second time. Completely exposed on the "passenger" side of the tractor. Anyone have any ideas how to protect it from being damaged? I was thinking about welding a schedule 40 pipe so that the filter sits within the pipe but I could still get an oil filter...

    3 pt won't raise/lower with load

    Went to use my rotary cutter and the 3 point won't raise and lower it. I checked the adjustment dial under the seat that controls the pressure of the 3 pt hitch. That didn't work. I saw a dark puddle on the ground under the "passenger" side of the tractor where the hydraulic valve is located...

    Price check on L4060

    I am going to check out a Grand L4060 with HST at the Kubota dealer where I bought my L3301 6 months ago. What price range should I expect on this tractor? I know I'm going to take a hit on trade in but I am understanding the tractors are valued by hours and not age necessarily.

I have two 5 gal cans that are colored yellow that have diesel and three 5 gal cans colored red that I have non-ethanol gas for my zero turn.

    Echo chainsaw won't tight chain

    I had to bring my Echo chainsaw in under warranty a few months ago because the tightening screw was stripped. After it was fixed I made sure to be careful not tighten it too much. Today the chain was loose and the screw would tighten anymore. I'm wondering if I am doing anything wrong? I'm...

    Fuel gauge reads empty but half tank remaining

    I was doing work in the woods with my L3301 and noticed the fuel gauge was getting close to empty. I stopped the rotary cutter and drove back to my driveway. My fuel tank holds about 11 gallons but I was only able to get 5 gallons in the tank by visual inspection through fill hole. I hope...

    Bolt on hooks

    I recently installed two bolt on hooks from Kens bolt on grab hooks The hook were high quality. Two things to remember: 1) Drilling 4 holes took nearly 1 1/2 hrs. I'm sure this was due to going through 2 plates of metal on the bucket. My wife and I took turns. I used an electric drill...

    Should I upgrade?

    I finally got to use my new L3301 w/bushhog and grapple. I felt like it was underpowered when I needed to push over 3" trees. The bush-hog worked fine and I liked the small frame to get in and out of trees. I'm wondering if I should look into to upgrading to the L4701? I would get a bit...

    how much ballast for L3301?

    Now that I have bought my first tractor I've been researching tractor ownership. One item I see is ballast. I'm getting the rear wheels filled so would just carrying around a box blade in the back be enough ballast for most of my work? Or would I need to buy a 3 pt ballast box?

    Starting over

    I was on the verge of buying a New Holland T4.65 but after talking with a few people at work that have tractors I realize that the size and the cab were unrealistic to what I would be using it for. I'm now leaning toward a smaller tractor without cab as my tractor use would be intermittent and...

    I went to a local tractor store and was asking about used tractors when one of the salesman showed me a new 2018 T4.65 New Holland, 4WD, Cab, FEL. What I liked about his listing of features was that this tractor automatically regens so that your tractor isn't down for a period of time going...

    Used Kubotas selling for original prices?

    I've been looking at pre-DEF Kubotas from years 2013 and later. I noticed one tractor, M5040, is selling for $31,000. It was mfg from 2007-2010 and sold for $24K-$30K with FEL. Why would someone sell a used tractor for same price the paid almost 10 yrs ago? I also looked at a M7040HDC with...

    Looking at a used 2014 TYM T554 with loader and 400 hrs. The price is at $25,000. Seems like I could get a new one in the same category with loader for about $6,000 extra? Also I was told that this year model doesn't go through regen mode although it is a Tier 4.

    Buying a mower and 40 acres of trees

    I moved into this place about a year ago. First time living in the country. 4 acres of grass and 40 acres of trees. I bought a 60" ZT which I like but I can see the need for a tractor to cut and move trees as the need arises. I'm not interested in clear cutting but cutting down dead trees...
