    Ballast for B2601

    I recently purchased a B2601 and needed a ballast box. I looked at lots of posts and videos to find out the options and decided what I might need. I wanted about 400-450# total and started figuring volumes and weights. I decided to use a 20 gallon trash can as the base. I used a standard draw...

    PTO shaft size?

    The tractor end of my driveshaft has the female spline part(is this the yoke?) and a universal joint welded to the end of the inner shaft that slides inside the outer shaft that is connected to the gearbox. So, are you saying that you can cut off the splined female end and weld on a new 1 3/8"...

    Ballast box question

    THANKS for all of your replys and information. It's great to have such a resource for new Kubota owners. I've had 3 other tractors, but they were all different models and much older. I plan to use this not only as ballast, but also a tool holder. I will put in several PVC pipes, a chain saw...

    Ballast box question

    I am building a new ballast box for my B2601. My question is how to use the 3 point lower arms to carry the box. It seems that if I use the arms in the lowest position (not raising them at all) it will use no hydraulic power and leave more power for the FEL. Is there a reason to raise the box...
