    Another B2401

    I have had my B2401DT for a month, including one big dump of snow. It was deep enough that I had to go down my lane pushing snow onto piles on either side, and then clean up with a rear blade. I didn't really think shifting between R and 2 all the time slowed me down in the slightest. And I...

    Rear-mount snowblower on B2401DT (gear drive): yay or nay?

    Hi @Utepils, Did you ever get a B2401 with snowblower? Just finished cleaning up a 45cm snowfall with my B2401 with the bucket and a rear blade and with that much snow found I had to use the bucket for the bulk of it. Actually did some with my old push snowblower with led me to think about...

    Is the equipment shortage ending? Probably not, but look at this JD dealer's lot.

    Mike the sales guy dropped off my B2401 this morning, just shy of 6 months after I ordered it! Fortunately we've had a really "dry" winter so far, hardly any snow accumulation. First thing I did was hook-up the rear blade so that it's ready to clear my 300m "driveway" should we get that big...

    It finally arrived at the dealer just after Christmas, after a long wait in Vancouver waiting on the rail lines through the Rockies to get rebuilt after the washouts in November. Got all the paperwork squared away today, just waiting on the "tire guy" to get back from holidays to load the...

    Advice choosing between several different models…

    Exactly why I opted for a geared model (B2401), as none of the HST models have "cruse" that works in reverse. With geared model just put it in one of the reverse gears, set the throttle and your feet don't have to do anything.

    Not at all. I believe both Kubota engine and steel tube manufacturers are going flat out, probably producing more output than ever before, but the demand still exceeds supply in both. You can model this behaviour with queuing theory, which shows that the longer the imbalance exists the longer...

    Was taking to my dealer about my B2401 that was due "in September" but now has a "November 30th" delivery date. He says it is coming from Japan, same as all tractors for the Canadian market! He said they've had shorter shipping times since they started landing in Vancouver and using rail to...

    Frustration with waiting on new Kubota order

    🤣 you are not alone and that's why the Bxx50 got rebranded the LX series.

    Their own web site only lists "sub-compact" for GA, but all tractors fromTX. GA seems to be the source of all important loaders and backhoes. Also looks like engines may all come from IL https://www.kubotausa.com/about/us-facilities

    B2401 50 hour service

    Hi @ultra97rider you probably know this, now you have your B2401, but the transmission and hydraulics share the same oil/filter, and they don't have to be replaced until 400 hours.
