    Seat cover for MX6000 with armrests

    Has anyone found a seat cover that fits the new MX tractors with armrests? I would like to cover that vinyl because it’s hot in summer and cold in winter. I have searched the Durafit covers and can’t find one that fits.

    Hole or slot?

    I‘ve owned my MX6000 for about 6 weeks. Before this tractor, I owned a 20+ year old JD. The JD had a turnbuckle adjustment for the lower lift arms; my MX has the new pin holes and slots design for adjustment of the lower lift arms. I’m wondering which is the best method for adjustment: limit...

    Install usb charging port

    I’m not very savvy with electrical wiring for 12 volt electrical systems. I’m installing 2 LED lights on my MX6000 open station (with canopy). I understand that install because it has a wiring kit with relay, switch, and battery connectors. I’d also like to install a USB port so I can keep my...

    LED lights

    I’m thinking about installing Led lights on the canopy of my MX6000. A eight inch flood/spot bar facing forward, and a 4 inch work light facing the rear. I have easy attachment locations under the roof of my canopy to do this. My question relates to wiring. I can buy a wiring harness for the...

    Bison rear blade

    Sometimes you get lucky

    I was on a waiting list for a MX HST tractor with about 5 different dealers; all told me not to expect anything for a least 9 months. Yesterday I was called by a dealer in an adjacent state; they have a MX6000 that someone ordered and declined to buy. I’m the lucky one who will take delivery in...

    New MX5400 tire options

    I’m planning to buy a new MX5400 in the spring. I was just looking at the Kubota tractor builder and saw that R14 tires are now an option on this tractor. I was planning to get R4 tires because R1 is too aggressive in creating ruts and not as good for loader work. My typical uses: loader work...

    Tire options

    I have had a small JD tractor for the past 20 years. Later this year I plan to upgrade to a L3901 HST with loader and 5' rotary cutter. My needs: I live on 20 acres in northern NM at 6800' elevation. My land is flat to gently rolling with grass and scattered pinyon and juniper trees. I use the...
