    New B2601 minor scare

    When slowing or attempting to stop when coming down a steep section should one rely primarily on the brakes (YIKES!) or the hydrostatic pedal or both? As a new operator I have left a couple of 10 ft long skid marks in the grass and nearly had to change my underwear.

    Hello everyone. On YouTube there are what looks like B model Kubota tractors operated outside of the US with front mounted flail mowers. Pretty nice set up if you ask me.
