    Got a new grapple that is a year old. Still crated. Condensation in lines?

    Before hooking the lines up to my machine I took the hydro lines off to make sure there was no water or anything in them. The lines coming from the part of the cylinders that were open/extended had a few drops worth. This was shipped dry. Now I did open and close the cylinder by hand by lifting...

    Deciding on grapple type, not brand yet.

    I am leaning towards a single lid instead of the dual lid, and the shorter bottom. This will be for a svl75. I have no ability to try them out so watching vids and etc.. my main thing will be woods cleanup, lots of old downed trees, honeysuckle, and undergrowth. I like the bigger rake style lid...

    Pick of my Frankenstein bucket.

    Frankenstein bucket. I needed a gravel bucket for my kx040 to backfill sewers. My dealer, like lots of dealers, have a bunch of pin on buckets that come on smaller tractors. Welded the adapter on, reinforced and made deeper. Works great for gravel.

    Difference between t1855 and ta043 cab filters

    They are basically interchangeable and both end in 71600. The tao43 is better built and has 2 red lines running the length, and cost about $20 more. The t1855 has thicker looking element and cheaper gasket. Any information on the difference? Both are kubota brand factory filters.

    Tackling my kx040痴 horrible hvac filtration.

    Its mind blowing what kubota designed for a cab filter. The filters are a joke, same as the recirculate filters on a rtv1100(which I closed off on mine). So Im building a new filter housing for the kx. I found a engine filter for a Mercedes that is the perfect size. Im using 16ga metal which Im...

    Found and fixed leak on new kx040-4

    There has been a small bleed of fluid from the depth of my new machine. I washed and sprayed it out a couple of times to make sure it wasnt left over fluid spillage from assembly. It wasnt so i went in to find it. It was a return hydraulic line at the bottom of the hydro tank between the tank...

    Hypertherm 30 vs Hobart 40i for first plasma cutter.

    Tired of not having one. Which do is better in your opinion. I want the 120v option for portability if I ever need it but will use it on 240 mainly. I have shop air but would like the pre installed air dryer and compressor.

    rtv1100 poor design of ac recirculate filter.

    Changing my ac filters yesterday I notice the inside cab filter allows major dust intrusion into the system. Its not sealed and just sits in front of the recirculating opening. I don't use recirculate but its not a sealed filter and if the door doesn't shut all the way or the foam seal wears out...

    Found the wires in kx040 for rear light and beacon light.

    I assume this will be the same for the different models. Mine came with a beacon switch, no light. If you look behind the passenger side speaker you will find the wires. They are attached to the grommet closest to the antenna. Pop out old grommets and push these through and your good to go...

    It may be a complete replacement for the M62, I'll wait and see. But I'm wanting an M6111. Its seems great for what it does. I'll do mostly sewer and water lines with it, and need to use a lot of gravel, so I have a smooth 48" bucket coming. Quick attach will allow for quick switching. I've...

    Having hard time choosing between landpride 3715 and 4715.

    I can a fresh off the truck 3715 for $13750 or a 4715 left over from last April for $15900. The 4715 has sat for a year and looks it. Not a big deal.

    This started the other day when I was cutting hay, the engine would make a weird, kinda ticking sound then run out of power. I stopped and looked at engine. Nothing out of the norm that I could see, but was still losing power. Best I can explain is it feels like it wasn稚 getting fuel or air. I...

    Is there a bolt on upgrade option for the m59/m62 seat? Or kubota tractors in general

    My back is not what it used to be and this thing will beat you to death. Ive adjusted it multiple different ways-Raise/lower back, set tension weight. The problem seems to be travel, so that in itself may limit options as a better seat may be taller. Has anyone upgraded their seat? This seat is...

    I changed oil and hydro/hst filters per 50hr service in manual. Hydro fluid doesn't get changed til 400hr. But when I was resetting the intellapanel it had hydro fluid listed under 50hr. Conflicted.

    Been working on trading my m59 for m62. Looks like the m62 backhoe is weaker.

    Got a couple of deals that are really great, but as I look at specs on the two backhoes it appears the m62 is detuned some. Maybe the 2 ft extra takes some away because of leverage. backhoes.. bucket force for m59 7602lb, m62 is 6572lb. That is 1000lb difference. digging force of dipperstick...

    M59 exhaust manifold leaks and turbo oil line.

    My m59 started sounding like valves slapping, especially under load at low rpm's. Kubota recommends valve adjustment at 800hr I think. We have a new kubota dealer here now so I scheduled with them. It's a very annoying noise. As I investigated I found the leaks. You can feel the leaks blowing...

    nimco cv-452 leaks around spools, and locks up in dump with higher rpm's.

    It leaks around the cap where they bolt to the valve block. When you take the spool out is there just the white nylon washer that seals around spool? Or should there be an o ring with it? This valve also has the regen or 'quick dump' on the bucket dump, and under high rpms it will stick, causing...

    massey 1070 loader hydraulics stick in bucket dump.

    Its a nimco 2s-4835 valve. Its always been crappy on the bucket dump, I think it has a float or quick dump mode when pushed all the way to the right. But using it with elevated rpm's you have to pop it back to center from dump. Its aggravating. Ordered rebuild kit for that spool and put new...

    M59 front drive shaft leak.

    noticed hydro fluid leaking from the front drive shaft housing tube. Anyone changed one? This just showed up when I changed oil and added a little Hydro fluid because it was low.

    pulling gooseneck equipment trailer with tool boxes on bed.

    With an 8' bed can you put the crossover box with the topside boxes and still pull a gooseneck equipment trailer?

    Finally made grab bar for m59

    You can tell Kubota left provisions for one but don't offer it. This runs over top of the flat spot on the fender incase I want to run it down, but its sturdy enough to swing on so no need now. I was starting to make the console loose from grabbing it.
