    2501 acts like brakes on

    I bought this tractor used. I have put most of the 320 hours on it, tho. I have never seen a tractor act like this. I can barely shove the top of the rear tire on a flat cement floor. I had a New Holland that I could push all over that floor. Same HP tractor. Thanks guys

    2501 acts like brakes on

    Have a 2016 L2501 2wd gear tractor. When mowing or moving even with heavy stuff attatched......pressing on the clutch gives a quick stop...almost like braking. The brakes have plenty of slack and are not dragging. I have checked each side and they brake as they should. On a flat cement surface...

    L2501 2WD Freewheel

    My 2501 acts like the brakes are dragging. When moving and I depress the clutch, the tractor stops immediately. On flat cement...I cannot shove it at all manually. The brakes work great. I have the linkages backed off quite a bit , but it has made no difference. Nothing heats up that I can...

    2 WD front axle pivot lube

    Thanks Wolfman.....I don't see how the plug in the rear is part of the slop removing stuff...but if you say so. It is just a little plug. I will take it out again and stick a wire or something in there to see how deep it is and if any grease is in there. Thank you for your help. Maybe I can lube...

    2 WD front axle pivot lube

    I have a 2016 L2501 2WD. On the front axle pivot there is no grease fitting...only a plug on the rear part. The front consists of the adjustment bolts. Can't find any info on this. Should I remove the plug and attempt to grease ? Wonder why a fitting is not there? It is a big pivot point and...

    Tractor Overheating

    Overflow tank bubbling ??? Sounds like combustion gas may be in the cooling system. If it's not that, pull the t stat completely out and try running. If it still gets hot, leave t stat out, pull the radiator and have it rodded out if possible or checked for full flow. Good Luck...but those...

    Kubota L2501 - initial review

    Mine did not have the guard. I went to the dealer's and asked where it was. Nobody knew until one guy came in and sez: "Heck, we got a bunch of them in the shop"...and he went and got me one. It was kinda difficult to install as the grill is very heavy. I used a hoist to hold it up and finally...
