    G5200 with G2500 Snowblower Modification

    G5200 and G2500 snowblower mod. After one whole season of blowing snow with my new set up. I was having issues with the fiber shaft coupler breaking. I went through many different couplers, I fabricated a few from sheet metal they did not last long. I used a VW beetle steering shaft coupler...

    Craftsman dozer blade on the G5200

    Nice job, It is do nice having the knowledge and tools to fabricate and repurpose. From previous exp. don't use the plow with the deck on. if you are moving dirt you will most likely get stuck.

    after market fiber disk coupling for g5200 hydrostatic transmission

    Not sure if this will work on our machines for the hydro units. But I pulled one of the hydro couplers off an old JD 140 you know the green machines. Attached is a picture. I used it to replace the fiber disk on my G2500 snowblower that kept braking. It runs smoother than ever when the...

    Looking for Mower Deck G5200

    from all my knowledge and experience with this mower, if you purchase mulching blades and you can get Gator style Oregon blades Oregon mulching blades are part number 391-617, you will have to bore out the hole if the spindles are the same size as the RC48-G20 decks. They work great. I would...

    G5200 with G2500 Snowblower Modification

    Last year after using my g2500 snowblower I realized that I hated the short and wide chute. when I blew powder it was like being in a blizzard. Also when you got into deep snow you could not blow it since the chute was so short. This summer I took a chute off a scrap Ariens 1028 that I found...

    Looking for Mower Deck G5200

    Smokeless, I hope you have found a deck. but if you have not and for others the mower decks for the G3200, G4200, G5200 and G6200 will all fit each model.

    G5200 with G2500 Snowblower Modification

    Snowblower Modification and upgrade. Parts used ADTH landing gear motor for RV 12v DC 30amp part number 1RV-200 (Way overkill, I had one left over from my old 5th wheel trailer) ($170-320) Very expensive and not needed, you can easily purchase a windshield wiper motor to do the same thing and...

    G5200 Sims Cab Modification

    I have always liked the old Garden Tractors, and I am a little OCD when it comes to my equipment and vehicles. but one thing I can tell you is that since I bought mine I have met a quite a few people who I bought parts off and they sold theirs and regretted getting rid of it. It took some time...

    Trailer plug add on.

    I believe that Kubota makes the plug connector for your tractor, it plugs directly into your existing harness in the rear. I know for the M series tractors they run about $30, cheap and easy way to get your power to your trailer. If the tractor is idling then it will charge your dump trailer...

    G5200 Sims Cab Modification

    So when I bought my tractor it had a Sims cab with it, the only problem was that these cabs mounted directly to the fiberglass fender in the rear and the whole back of the fender was broken off. So after I had the fender repaired I was not going to bolt the cab to it again so I fabricated a...

    G5200 with G2500 Snowblower Modification

    I wanted to update my snowblower for the chute rotation and the articulation for changing the angle of the shoot. So I ordered an actuator and I had a spare motor for an RV jack. I started off by welding up a bracket to hold the motor and I fabricated a new rod to attach to the screw drive, I...

    Refurbishing a Kubota W5021 SCC

    You did a beautiful job, there is one part that brings down how nice of a job you did. it is your airbox cover. where it has oxidized. If you take a heat gun to the cover you can bring it back to black. You have to heat it up for a minute or so move it around in a circle then work out once...
