    New to me...LX2610HSU with LA535 and RCK60-30bb (MM) Mower deck won't go low enough to cut.

    I thought the SU wasn't supposed to work with Mid Mount Mower due to the taller tires.

    Fuel prices

    I bought 10 gallons of premium and 10 gallons of farm diesel (50cents cheaper than road diesel) and the bill was just over $100. It must be my fault since the politicians say it isn't them. :D

    Tractor instead of fork lift - newbie

    I think it would be a good idea to add a ballast box or implement even if the tires are loaded. I have a L2501HST, btw. I lifted a heavy pallet (pull behind Roughcut mower estimated by them at 650 lbs), but just once out of my pickup. The delivery driver had a lift gate to easily slide it in...

    Well R14 tires are on....

    I put a smiley face on my post. I thought your humor was funny just responded with some humor of my own. ;)

    Grading scraper for L3901

    I use the GS2572 with my L2501 HST and R4 loaded rear tires. I've do a section of our unmaintained community road and my driveway with loader and bucket, without the bucket, and without the loader and bucket. I also have the QH15, so quite a bit of weight. The elevation is around 4000-4500...

    A BX to play in the mud with ... I probably would have bought something different for that purpose. :D

    Tree spade L2501

    Not a tree spade, but some people use stump buckets. Good Works Tractors makes these. https://www.goodworkstractors.com/product/gwt-mini-stump-bucket/

    Important KTAC Insurance Update

    No, it doesn't sound like the same coverage.

    LX2610 or LX3310

    Kubota actually never fixed the B3350. They abandoned it. It would have been great for the B3350 owners if they did fix it. I feel their handling of the issues is a black eye, but no more than Ford's handling of the 6.4. The LX also uses different injection technology, but otherwise similar...

    LX2610 or LX3310

    Fwiw, most Fords that had severe emissions issues like the 6.4 didn't use DEF and were completely fine until they weren't. They also had a warranty and worked in the background. Furthermore, the LX is relatively new, so nobody can guarantee an issue won't pop up with the emissions system...

    LX2610 or LX3310

    That might be true, but somehow all the recommendations that I've heard say R4s are the tougher tire. Btw, I wasn't really able to find apples to apples comparisons on the Carlisle site.

    LX2610 or LX3310

    I don't that's worth much. He also had a B3350, and we know how that worked for many people. Also, Neil can go borrow a larger tractor if he wants one or even heavy equipment. At the end of the day, all of the Kubota's are "solid" for their intended use. I don't think that means much...

    LX2610 or LX3310

    You can buy a finish mower or flail finish mower for what you can buy a MMM. The LX is only slightly bigger than your current B. It seems like it would make more sense to keep the B3200 if you want to stay with a MMM. You can look at the dimensions on tractordata.com

    LX2610 or LX3310

    Unless you are getting a cab, you should also consider an L and Grand L if not the MX. They are significantly larger and may keep you from having to upgrade again in a short while.

    B2650 good for a small farm and 1/4 mile driveway in NH?

    If it is a good deal, then it would be a good start. You can always sell it later to upgrade if you find you need a larger one.
