/ common problems with kubotas and heavier work #1
- Jun 2, 2006
- 2006 Kubota L3400
I am pretty close to deciding on a B7800 for my 6 acres and i have some pretty heavy work to do. For example, removing felled trees, cleaning up pasture, moving dirt from a hillside in prep for a rock wall, driveway work, field cutting, posthole digging, etc.. My question is what is the most common failure on these tractors and how much do typical repairs cost? I know this an open ended question but any ideas I can get are appreciated. I am also concerned with having the steering rods on the front of the front axle exposed. Is there a way to add some sort of protection to this? Is it even required? Are there other common "weak points" I should know about. I know most people use these tractors as mowers first and other projects as secondary. I am just wondering if this tractor will hold up to some heavy tasks..
