    Kubota MX5100 Nightmare!

    If a break was seized wouldn't you hear the hydro whine when attempting to move the tractor?

    Storing Implements/Attachments?

    I'd get some pallet forks for your bucket and build a rack to hold your mower decks. Use the forks to lift and stack the mower decks on the rack above each other.

    Clutch Squeal

    As the clutch plate wears and gets thinner the pressure plate fingers extend closer to the throw out bearing eliminating the free play that is needed. Once they contact the throw out bearing the bearing will be turning at all times and if it's making noise it's lacking in lube or worn out from...

    Clutch Squeal

    I would think you'd be ok. I'd pay attention to the noise and if it gets worse you might reconsider. If the pilot bearing or throw out bearing fails completely you won't be able to disengage the clutch.

    That would be correct.

    Clutch Squeal

    With the clutch depressed the two bearings under load are the throw out bearing and the pilot shaft bearing. With the clutch released there is no load on these bearings. It sounds like your issue is with one of these bearings.

    New family member! What did I miss?

    If you're handy with a welder you can make something with more protection coverage then those you can purchase. This is the grill guard I fabricated...........

    Thanks guys

    I agree with Dan. Older diesels can be a bear to start in cold weather without a block heater. I have a JD 655 from 87' that's tough to start at 20 degrees even with new JD glow plugs. I had to break down any buy a block heater for it.

    My dealer printed one out and put it in a nice binder for me at no charge.

    Procurement of a Tractor

    I'd pony up the extra 2 grand for a tractor that's in stock. There's no telling how long you'll have to wait for a tractor that's "on order".

    Need to bleed hydraulic lines for new attachment?

    I had no issues with my Wicked 55 when it arrived. Basically it was plug + play. Is there an in line fuse on your 3rd function switch?

    If that dealer is using starting fluid to start diesel tractors, I'd look for another dealer.

    What did you do to or on your Kubota today?

    Is your snow blade a rigid mount to the SSQA plate? I'm curious because I've been told that the blade needs to be able to pivot and float on it's own, independent of the SSQA plate, similar to the way a plow mount is on a pickup. The way to obtain this float is to have have pins on the SSQA...

    What did you do to or on your Kubota today?

    Thanks for the info. I'm curious because I'm new to owning an EA Wicked 55 grapple and after it's last use have it stored in the open position, face down, cylinders retracted, on a pallet just as it was shipped. Why would storing the grapple open with the cylinders retracted create more...

    What did you do to or on your Kubota today?

    What brand grapple do you have? When it's in the open position are the cylinders extended or retracted?
