    New grapple & brush guard project

    A couple weeks ago, I purchased a Glacier Storm single thumb root/brush grapple for my LX2610. It is the 60" wide model. After some costly couplers from my Kubota dealer, it is now hooked up to the 3rd function I had installed when the tractor was purchased. Initial feedback is that I think...

    Flow control on the bucket curling ?

    Anybody ever put a flow control(s) on the hydraulic lines to slow the action of the bucket curling? Wondering what you did and how it worked out? I'm wanting to limit the speed of my curl at certain times. Thanx !

    Storm 48" grapple

    Anyone have experience with the 48" Storm grapple (made in central Michigan) for $1399? Would be using mine on an LX2610 for brush use and some firewood log moving about. Wondering if the thing is strong enough for general conservative use. Thanx !

    New ballast box

    I am soon to receive a new LX2610, and knew that a ballast box would be in the future. Many of the commercially available boxes were out of stock due to Covid, so I got to looking around at other people's ideas. I came across a 10 x 24 x 30" Hoffman electrical enclosure that had a bit of...

    How much rear ballast ?

    New guy here. New Kubota owner too (LX2610 this past weekend). I know with a front end loader, more ballast is recommended for the rear end. Just how much should I have, and is there a point where there is too much ballast ? Looking forward to conversing with you all ! Pete
