    How do you adjust the treadle peddle linkage on a Grand L40 series?

    Years ago there was a thread on here on how to adjust the linkage or cables from the treadle peddle to the engine and transmission. The L3940 here has right at 3000 hours and the peddle has to be moved 10-15˚ before it even starts to move, in reverse it's as it should be. The engine revs but no...

    What controls the High/Low shifting on the Grand L HST's?

    Our L3940 that has almost 2900 hours on it is suddenly shifting from high to low and vice versa with no load on flat ground by itself, you can feel a definite shift. It seems to be doing it more in Mid range than any other. The only way to stop it is to either flick the Hi/Lo paddle to Lo and...

    How well does the L2501 steer with a load on the loader?

    Our son is thinking about pulling the trigger on a L2501HST maybe tomorrow. One thing he was wondering about is with the older style steering, pitman arm and tie rods, does it steer harder with a heavy load on the loader than one with full hydrostatic steering cylinder? I'm fairly sure he's...

    Some differences we noticed between the KL2610 and the KL4010 Loaders.

    We went to open house at West End Sales in Vale, NC Saturday. Our son is thinking about buying a CK2610HST. We were wondering why a lighter weight loader was rated at lifting about 580 lbs. more. Actually my wife noticed where she thought the weight difference came in at and I think I agree with...

    Any Kubota M5 series tractors owners or operators out there?

    Son is seriously thinking about getting an M5-111 or a M5-091 cab tractor to cut down on the number of tractors he has and something a little smaller in size than his CaseIH 5140 and more power than his JD 5065M and more loader capacity than the MX5100. Just trying to get some first experiences...

    Anyone know what a wheel weight bolt kit consist of for an MX5100 ?

    I can get wheel weights quite a bit cheaper at Everything Attachment than I can from a Kubota dealer but I can't find out the bolt requirements for the weights. According to Everything Attachments the same weights fit a boatload of tractors: Our MX5100 has 17.5L-24" R4's. If you have a link to...

    Please help me explain why someone should buy a non-DPF tractor.

    They have been looking at a Kubota MX5100 or an MX5200. The 5100 supposedly only has an EGR and is interim Tier 4, the 5200 has an Common Rail and a DPF and is full Tier 4. The 5100 has an EGR but not sure if it has the Common Rail stuff. I'm no diesel mechanic and they make me research all this...

    W.R. Long or Kubota 3rd Function on a Kubota L6060 Open Station?

    It looks like my son has decided to go with the L6060 Open Station, FEL, R4's, 3rd Function, one set of rear remotes with Float, loaded rear tires and 2 sets of rear wheel weights. This is replacing the L3940. The question is which 3rd function to go with the dealer says he'll put either one on...

    Comparison  Where does the extra weight come from between the L4760 and the L5460/L6060

    Wife and son are thinking of upgrading the L3940 to the L5460 or L6060, Open Station, no Cab. They all have the same engine except the L4760 is non-turbo. The wheelbase is 0.8" of an inch longer on the 54 and 60 over the 47. The L5460 and L6060 have a Cat. II 3pt hitch. Since the 5460 and 6060...

    Kubota L4060 walk around video

    I happened upon this just now on Youtube: I can see where the fuel spout would be a problem for many. On larger tractors that don't see a lot work in around wooded areas it's not that big of a deal but on small utility.....

    Hay Day at the NC Agriculture Piedmont Research Station, lots of videos

    My wife got a flyer from our local JD dealer that there was going to be a Hay Day April 17th at the North Carolina Agriculture Piedmont Research Station. We didn't really know what the agenda was so she didn't really much to go but we went anyway, son was suppose to go but was too busy. When we...

    How does this deal sound on a trade of an X720 for and a X740, drove a 1026R

    Local dealer has one X740 left on his lot and has it priced at $9900 with a 62" deck. He said he'd give us $6500 for our X720 with a 54" deck and little over 200 hours on it. That would give us a new unit with a another 4 years of warranty but that does seem like a lot just to get into a diesel...

    A nice M7040 with duals, front and rear

    I don't really care for the duals, I figure they're using them for stability in the mountains but the inside singles look much wider than what you can get here in the US. I wish I could understand what they're saying in the video. Kubota M7040 Alpin - YouTube

    Looks like the farm is getting it's first JD tractor a 5065M, a few questions :-)

    Well she has a JD X720 but she doesn't consider it a tractor. Wife and son run a cattle operation. Right now I think has right at 60 head of cattle including all the calves. They maintain about 150 acres total. She was wanting something to replace the IH 574 with and had looked a Kubota M7040...

    Questions about an M7040, especially ground speeds. Wife wants a new tractor ;-)

    We went over to the dealer where we got the L3940 to check on something and she noticed a shiny new M5140 and a M7040 with a cab sitting there and said I wonder how much one of those are? Well that was enough for me to ask questions. They had an M5140 with Hydraulic Shuttle and the air seat but...

    X700 series owners w/Gas engine, how's your fuel usage?

    Our X720 seems to be burning better than a gallon and hour, more like 1.5 gallons/hour. We can get about 5-6 hours of mowing time out of a full tank. To us that seems like a lot. Is this about right? We have over 150 hours on it. We were hoping it would get better after it broke in but it hasn't.

    We shouldn't have gotten in that tractor at the Southern Farm Show

We were looking over the CaseIH display and they had more equipment than I've seen in a long time but it's been about 3 years since I've gone to the show.

    Follow Up on my son Jesse

    Jesse passed away this past Monday. Nearly every major organ had failed or were failing badly. The final thing that got us to the point where we had to say it was time to have a long talk with the Doctors was when they put him on dialysis and his liver was starting to fail. It's still sort of...

    Any way to put a trailering light plug on a Grand L40 series?

    As my wife slowly replaces older implements they all seem to come with a full array of lights: brakes, flashers and turn signals. This week the new grain drill came in and it has them too. I looked through the build to order section and didn't see it as an option on the Kubota. Can one be put on...

    Have to keep steering slightly to the left to keep a straight line on the road, L3940

    My wife and son have been hauling in a lot of round bales and they said you have to continuously steer the L3940 ever so slightly to the left to maintain a straight line on the road. You don't notice it in the fields and around the farm just on the road where you're trying to go straight at high...

    Anyone on here went from a JD X700 series to a BX and regretted it?

    My wife says she may sell the X720 and get a BX 1860 or 2360. She's really not too happy with the JD, been in the shop once already and drinks gas like no tomorrow. I tried my best to get her to get the X740 diesel but she wouldn't hear to it. She likes the way the X720 rides and mows but it...

    Maybe we should have gotten a crankcase heater in the L3940!

    Our L3940 is used everyday for feeding 50 head of cattle or doing something else. It's kept in an unheated insulated steel building but even with temps in the 30's outside it's having some difficulty starting. It hasn't failed to start yet but it's pretty darn sluggish at turning over. It's run...

    Fluid in the front axle and a front tire pressure w/loader? L3940

    We were checking all the fluids yesterday, took delivery this week and everything looks fine except the front axle didn't show any oil when I backed out the check level plug. I took the fill plug out and twisted up a clean blue shop towel stuck it in and it appears to be 1/8 - 1/4" low. Now...

    Our L3940 has arrived! Couple of ?'s Pics but bandwidth warning!

    I guess since we're owners now I post over here. So far so good except for a couple minor mistakes by the dealer. He was suppose to bring a Bale Spear, when the tractor was delivered Tues. and we still haven't seen the spear. Also one of the keeper bolts in the FEL linkage is badly bent, it's...

    Anyone ever had any dealings with one of these a "Do-it-All" Bucket Fork

    I saw one of these on the bucket of a nearby dealer. He said he's not an official dealer but let the Rep. talk him into putting one on one of his buckets for basically free advertisement and an attention getter. It's $1200, seems well built but I'm not crazy about the way it's attached to the...

    L4400HST vs. L3940HST ?

    My wife and I are seriously thinking of getting one or the other. The L4400 looks to be a tried and true simplistic tractor. The Grand L40 series looks very nice and has a lot creature comforts that both of us like. We're looking at the long haul, every tractor we have except the Super H was...
