    B50 series w/ROPS owners, watch out for this...

    I operated my box blade with the ROPS folded fully down for the first time this spring. Then I was wondering what the f*** bent my top link, and also the inner bar of the adjustable right side anti-sway linkage, when I went to change the 3-point over from the BB to the trailer hitch receiver...

    B2782B auger gearbox oil change

    I just drained the gear oil for a change and the old oil looks scungy - like very cloudy or has a lot of stuff suspended in it. Before adding fresh oil, would a flushing out with something like clear kerosene to clear the bulk of the particulates sticking around inside be advised? Or maybe run...

    Rear PTO safety circuit - SOLVED

    I'm trying to find out why I can't get off the tractor seat without the engine cutting out from the seat presence control shutting it down. This didn't happen last year when using my WC68 chipper. Yes - tranny in N (not required but best) Yes - Parking brake firmly engaged with both pedals...

    Skid plates

    Where do I get a skid plate kit for my B2650? In Canada if possible. A 2" diameter dry stick must have flipped up under there while I was backing up this afternoon in some light bush and tore off the connector cap for the rpm sensor. 0 RPM shows now on the tach with engine running, and no, it's...

    Loose driveline set screw B2782B snowblower

    While hooking up the front snowblower driveline yesterday the front female section slipped off the reduction box shaft into my hand, with the 1/4" key landing on the floor. Hmmm. It seems that the allen socket set screw for the key simply let the key go and it slid right off. It's a very good...

    Subsoiler for B2650

    Any recommendations/experiences with acquiring and using a sub-soiler/ripper on their B2650/LX2610 tractor's 3-point? My need will be for sub-soil ripping yearly along the outside of the treed swales I'm building, to keep tree roots trained downward and not spread into planted alley crops and...

    OOPS! Let's see them!

    How about a thread for showing off our tractor mishaps? For pictures and/or words of the inevitable "incidents" we experience with our machines. Mine have been minor and peripheral oops so far. The bush has laid bare a few weaknesses to attend to.

    SSQA latch lever

    I'm thinking there's got to be a way to operate the ssqa lock levers using an electric actuator rather than my aging muscles or more costly extra hydraulics. Any pointers, examples, links, pics of fabrications of electric ssqa lever actuators out there? I would especially like any ideas that...

    B2650 cold climate engine oil - Rotella T6-5w40 or Semi-synth 10W-30?

    It's 400 hour service time and with temps dropping outside it'd good timing to get the machine freshened up for winter. I have 5w40 Rotella T6 and 10w-130 Semi Synth oils in stock, and have heard that many Kubota tractor owners prefer the 5w-40 full synth oil, but is anyone here running it in...

    Woods M5-4 Dixie Cutter bush hog shaft oil seal

    This summer my neighbor 'gave me his old 5 ft bush hog, in pretty god shape, as he had bought a smaller tractor and new 4' cutter and had no more need for this one. Nice neighbor, eh? EXCEPT, after a few hours of cutting with it and parking it, it started dripping gear oil from the bottom...

    B2650 Loader Lever issue

    Any B2650 owners out there finding that their right lower leg moves the loader lever when turning to look over your right shoulder? I'm finding it even more of an issue with my insulated rubber boots on. The paint is worn off the lever right where it bends back towards the valve assembly...

    Ripper/Sub-soiler Recommendations

    I'm looking into acquiring a single shank 3-point ripper/subsoiler for my B2650, and hope to zero in on something by next "ripping" season. That'll be late April earliest out this way. I would also prefer one that has a shear pin built in. We've got some rocks here for sure and don't need a...

    B2650 exhaust pipe and muffler cracking

    My exhaust pipe got cracked somehow just below the lower mount point, I guess I hit something, so having it brazed at a neighbor. But when pushing the repaired pipe back onto the muffler I saw the pictured crack at the muffler joiner flange. It was invisible with tail pipe mounted. I'm wondering...

    2017 B2650 engine oil

    Is Rotella T6 5W-40 a good oil for these engines? OEM filters for sure here, but wondering if 5w-40 is warranty compliant, and if anyone has been using it and how it's performing for you. I ran an old VW golf TDI on T6 for years, (yes I know, different machine totally), and found it an excellent...

    Hammer and chain oil storage

    My B2650 oem tool box won't fit a hammer, or a 1 litre oil jug. The hammer is always useful for loosening and setting various attachment pins, etc. and my front snowblower chain oil has to go somewhere - and it found its spot! I think you'll need the BH77 backhoe subframe there to hold the...

    UDT oil for ISO 32 substitute in chipper

    I'm looking into buying a Woodland Mills WC68 3-point wood chipper to use with my B2650. It has a self contained hydraulic in-feed system that will require that I acquire 5 gallons of ISO 32 hydraulic oil to fill the chipper's resevoir. My question is can I use the Kubota Premium UDT hydraulic...

    B2650 Steering Column Boot fix?

    Since I bought my new 2650 new a year ago (Dec. 2017), the steering column rubber boot just below the steering wheel ALWAYS comes loose while tractor is in use, and just dangles there in a useless manner. This seems to be a design oversight as any attempt to re-engage the boot will fail to hold...
