  • Mr. Sidecarflip would you be so kind to give me some info and link to the linear actuator for the bed life on your sidekick .You talk as if it worked well.
    Thanks

    Got mine from Shoup. They have an online catalog or you can get a print one. Shoup specializes in aftermarket ag parts and has linear actuators in the 12 volt flavor. Goggle them up.
    Unfortunately no more of my bitching about Maine's Gov. The moderator pulled the thread because it was political. Not Allowed.

    I get the lowdown from my buddy in Bangor all the time
    You just don't get it. I don't care about your farm operation or farm income or how many BIG tractors you own, hours on them or grease used. I never contested your opinions of Kubota's expanding business model.

    My comment (that you can't get) is you often make snarky comments about other tractor owners when it has nothing to do with the thread. That is why I highlighted in red the comment you could have easily left out. If you go back and read your post and just leave out that sentence it changes how you come across.

    It tends to steer it, especially when I'm pushing a lot of snow. What I did was buy a set of tire chains just for the front wheels (not the rear) and that eliminates the plow steer issue entirely. In my case I have to remove my front fenders or the chains will hit them. All I did was run a set of hoses from the back to the front with quick disconnects at the loader valve so I can remove the loader. I fabbed up a mount to mount the fittings on the front of the loader arms and zip tied the hoses to the existing pipes that run up the loader arms. Out back, a set of Pioneer males to engage one of my 3 remotes and I angle the plow with the remote lever. The plow I bought (10 foot county plow) already had the Bobcat style hitch plate welded to the plow 'A' frame so I didn't need to do that. I run an ATI heavy duty 2 pin quick detach on the front, the Kubota OEM quick hitch isn't stout enough.

    Fine so long as you don't put the loader control in 'Float". I never float the blade, I always keep it in manual down with the skid shoes just touching the ground. and I keep it rolled back a bit as well. Remember, I have an almost 10,000 pound tractor so even with that much weight, the plow will still push me around if I use the float for some reason. Rolling it back always lessens the deflect impact. I just went off one of my 3 remote valves and ran lines to and on the loader terminating at the front loader cross tube.
    Hi,

    I saw your post and picture about 3rd function hydraulics. I am leaning very hard on the idea of installing the 3rd function hydraulics just so I can utilize a snow plow like yours.

    My question is: how does the tractor, specifically the front wheels, handle when you are pushing snow to one side or the other with an angled blade? My concern is the tractor moving to the opposite side in stead of the snow going where you want it?
