    Location of Safety Switches L3010

    Thank you. I suspect that shipping from Canada or driving 2000 miles round trip to pick up may negate the cost advantage. Kubota seemed to have switched to 17.5-24 sized tires with the same size front tires. If I have to buy two, that size is more readily available. I am trying to find a...

    Location of Safety Switches L3010

    She's alive! Almost four years idle since her bad "suntan", she started right up--rough at first until I purged the air out of the fuel line. The only part I changed so far is the fuel filter. One thing that was annoying is that the wire colors did not map to WSM diagram but it was easy...

    Location of Safety Switches L3010

    I found the safety switch! It is easily accessible from the rear of the tractor near the 3pt lift arm. Sure enough, when the shift range lever is in neutral, the plunger is depressed (closed). If any range is selected (L-M-H), the plunger is not depressed (open). There is not any such switch on...

    Location of Safety Switches L3010

    The seat switch may have been added in later years. I haven’t run my L3010 in 4 years (since the catastrophic transport) but my memory is that it needed to be in neutral, PTO disengaged to start. So I could start it from the ground. My L3710 requires PTO disengaged, clutch depressed to start. It...

    I don't see a seat switch. I couldn't find in the manual nor on the L3710 tractor I have.

    Location of Safety Switches L3010

    I have the original printed one from Kubota that I purchased when I bought the tractor. The image posted above is from the online version available from kubotabooks. There is nothing near the pedal that I can see. Looking at videos for later models, it looks like there is an externison of the...

    Location of Safety Switches L3010

    The wiring diagram for the cab (that I do not have) in the WSM is more helpful. It shows the wire colors. It looks like I can ground the white wire from the starter relay to bypass the two safety switches. I'll try that this when I have some time to test it out before replacing the switches...

    Location of Safety Switches L3010

    I am trying to bring back my L3010 that was damaged by fire in transport. The fire damaged the left rear of tractor. I have most things squared away but it does not start (or even turn over). I did the obvious (battery and ground cable cleaned). I had a new key switch on hand and replaced it. My...

    MX5100 Hood Problem

    My neighbor has a spotless MX5100F used only for mowing. He is frustrated with a hood problem. When he unlatches and lifts the hood, it always disengages from the "hinge bar". Then he needs a second person to help close the hood properly. To me, it seems that the gas struts that hold the hood up...

    No sound from radio

    Besides the mute button, if there is a source button, check that. Also, if there is a headphone jack, try pluging in headphones. Any sound through them? Usually a headphone check will mute speakers--something could have vibrated loose in the jack.

    B2100 HST 4WD Separated To Find Oil Leak Left Side of HST

    I am not sure if this is the right parts diagram for your tractor but it shows the o-rings (90) on the hydraulic pipe (80) that you can use as an example. You can check on https://apps.kubotausa.com/illustrated-parts/ or https://messicks.com/ to get the correct diagram and part number for your...
