Have had my B2650 with cab for two days and compared to the 21year old Ford 1215 I traded in this unit is really loud! Both have the HST transmission. Borrowed a decibel meter from a neighbor and at 2400 rpm standing still the engine puts out 67db but when the HST is engaged and riding in the pasture the sound goes up to 85db. I always wear hearing protection when using ANY machinery since I have been wearing hearing aids for years, but this level to me is way into permanent hearing damage range. Will the pump quiet down when broken in or is this normal for Kubota? My NH T4.75 which is 75 hp is not even this loud at WOT. Yes, the hydraulic fluid level in thr B2650 is at the correct level. Thanks....
