Default Kubota common troubleshooting

Hello everyone!
Is kubota having common problems? I mean common as a brand or as series for the Kubota brand? And I mean problems like troubleshooting, something broken, common problems in the gearbox, engine, hydraulics, etc.

Here in our shop, we always seem to see the same type of repairs. 9 times out of 10 It can be traced back to lack of proper maintenance.

Maintain your Kubota, change it's oils and filters per the maintenance schedule and you won't be on the back end of a repair bill for a pile of bearings that ran dry, because the seal was leaking oil. Plenty of advance notice that something was needing attention!!

For instance the hour meter cable that snaps at 5 inches from the engine. Is it the lack of proper maintenance?
Mine is broken too...

I have a 2007 GR2100 with 101 hours. I have noticed there is a hose located under the seat that looks like it is a vent or overflow hose with a plastic valveof some kind on the end, anyway, there is transmittion fluid leaking from this hose. What should I check to find out what kinda problem I have?
Thanks
Ken

Transmission may be a little full. Check level and adjust as needed.

You need to get the two front wheels off the ground so that the axle will swivel around the king pin. This will allow additional space on one side or the other as you swivel the axle. I have replaced two glide steer cables. The first time with the wheels on the ground and it would have been impossible if I hadn't used a pull rope attached to the old cable when I pulled it out. It still took forever the work in through. The second time I lifted the front end off the ground and had it done in five minutes. Good luck.

Red face Re: Kubota common troubleshooting

Hello,

This post is directed at one of you friendly servicemen, or someone who has experienced this problem. On my rear axle, left side, the glide steer actuator (right name?) appears to have a fluid leak where the shaft enters the axle housing. I'm assuming there is a seal on the shaft leaking. Is this a common GR2100 problem? Can the seal be changed from the outside of the housing? How do I get the actuator shaft out if I can change it fom outside the axle housing etc. etc. . The leak isn't bad yet....just a couple of drops on the garage floor after each use. Thanks in advance for any help.
