Well, I think I may have found one, but have a couple of other questions because it will take a while before it will be ready and I need to explain why I think that might be the case.
So when went there the machine I ran, ran perfectly fine and all, but I did notice that the boom on the backhoe had an issue with the cylinder mounting ears or flanges. Educated guess or the best way I can describe it is it look to me like maybe during assembly whoever was installing the pins had them on an angle and they somehow were able to force them in place. As a result, they went through the cylinder eyelet which won't give, but the welded plates yielded and splayed out like a V.
The dealer said the delay was because his shop was backed up and wouldn't be able to install things like the 3rd function kit. But what I suspect is because everything is impossible to get he actually needs to order another boom which is perfectly fine and fix this one. I'm okay with them fixing the machine as long as it's done correctly which I don't see why not as it's Kubota's money and not my own, they could replace the whole backhoe for all I care.
But my question is and it is because I genuinely don't know how these things get assembled, if the boom was messed up should I be looking for anything else anywhere else on the machine? Asking this specific question because when I was at the dealer I noticed another backhoe BT603 in a crate and not sure if that might mean it comes from somewhere other than where the tractor does? As in another factory, line somewhere else in the plant?
Also based on my past experience this could be nothing to everything is wrong or something in between, I don't know Kubota history well enough.
I realize I could be overthinking this, but the purpose of this machine is to solve problems not create new ones so just thought I would ask the question?
