    Lb 400 bucket cylinder rebuild.

    I have seen an O-ring that sits on the exterior of the Ram cylinder many times on new Kubotas, I do not see any use for it, just an extra.

    Gas Additives - What's your favorite snake oil..?

    Not a gas or diesel additive but an oil additive "Proma" MBL8, I don't know how it does it but that friction test they do is very impressive, a salesman came by my fire station before I retired and let us do the testing with everything we could think of like, Mobil 1, Slick 50, and all the rest...

    Solar power for my new home

    I put in a grid tied system myself 10 months, 8.25 kw, will be paid off in 5 years, $14,000, all so with the Q7 inverters it auto shuts off with no gride power for lin-men safety, I could put in a secondary system for $3-5000 to fool it with a/c coupling, but I am not going to worry about it...

    Buckets Dropping When Tractor Shut-off

    Please keep us up-dated, my L47 (330hrs) does the same thing, I capped off the hoses to test the rams and it still dropped, figure it is the ram seals, just found out that the kit, 7 seals/O-rings is $250 per ram. $500 plus tax to DIY rebuild my 2 bucket rams, Ridiculous.

Anybody figured out how to get seals from another source. I'm thinking, I will take apart the ram and Mic/Measure the seals and...

    FEL Bucket tilt Drifts down over 2hrs

    Up-date, FINALLY got the hydraulic plugs and caps needed to isolate my curl rams. They slowly dropped telling me it was both rams needing rebuilds. Better then the spools/valves. I rebuilt a couple on my old JD backhoe, anybody have recommended rebuild video for the rams on my Kubota. Yes...

    It really depends on the attachment points for that cradle chain theory to work, I just had a trailer detach at the best possible place, the crossed chains were not attached to the trailer and RV for that to work, also in the 200-300 ft for me to pull over and stop, one chain was worn thru and...

    How about that Elon Musk huh?

    Free speech, that's a novel idea, I don't think he made his money by being stupid, and if it did fail, he will still have more than us.

    Moving a lot of dirt with L2501

    If you are going to run it long and hard, I rent the tool, had to trench 1/2 mile for a share of my neighbors well, rented a sit-down trencher, used it for 13hrs straight, best $900 I have spent, if I would have done that with my old commercial JD backhoe I would have spent more then that in...

    Anyone have experience with a rock bucket for a L3901??

    Wow, that's light, my regular 72" bucket is 400lbs, hope some L3901 owners with experience pipe up. These buckets really do not move much wood, to small, I lift fallen trees to fit in my dump trailer with my debris forks, to cut and split at home, that is what works for me. Good luck.
