    Pickup truck loader (AKA boom pole)

    Remember as you move away from the pivot point the AMOUNT you can lift will decrease proportionally. If that hole is through the pipe - that will be the first place it will bend or break once the load gets heavy.

    BX2350 won't start and I'm at a loss

    Before you place the new starter in, remove the old one and lightly sand the mating faces and re-install and see what happens

    Pull power from battery or starter for fuse block M5N-111?

    I agree with Jay 100% - anytime you are adding a "new" circuit - add a relay to the battery, unless the new device is drawing very little amps. the main reason - is something goes ............ sideways - you have only one place to look, and the sideways did NOT screw up the rest of the wiring.

    B1750 Making a terrible noise!!

    I would agree with you - sounds like you are on the right track with the throw out bearing, that is IF it is still around!

    BX1880 Wheels and tires

    so... yes they will fit - but, be aware the the 1880 uses a front rim size of 7.5 width - and the 2380 use a 8.5 front width, so what's the problem? that 8.5 will reach and rub the steering knuckle - and bind the front rim up! the ratio is about the same - very very close btw. SO - the...

    Piranha toothbar questions

    I too have the original version in 9 years - the new version looks to be better served for small saplings - then again it might be better all the way around. Whichever you choose - it will help digging by 300%

    Kubota Says No Wheel Ballast With a Backhoe.

    I dont thinks so - since the axles never carry the weight of the fluid in the tires! ALL the weight, unless you are moving FASTER than the weight can stay below the axle is transferred to the ground and not through the axle. And doing a bit more research - the added weight could be a roll over...

    Kubota Says No Wheel Ballast With a Backhoe.

    My dealer filled my BX25D tires from the get go. I have never had the hoe off either.

    BX2350 won't start and I'm at a loss

    Before you order new cables - clean up the ends with some sandpaper or emery cloth, but then LOOK inside the connector where the connector is clamped to the copper itself - sometimes it will oxidize INSIDE the connector - outside looks fine, inside is corroded!

    BX2350 won't start and I'm at a loss

    When you say the battery is great - what does that mean? DID you take it out and take to an automotive store and have it load tested? As mentioned - check and then recheck the cables.

    M9000 shuts down

    Sounds to me your Kubota M9000 is starving for fuel - what is history on fuel filter changes ? Another thought - are you moving around in the seat WHEN it shuts off?

    Daily Chuckle

    I have run across this too - order one piece at a time is cheaper than 2 packs or more. Another tricky thing to watch for - you can get 5% off this item ..... and you order it, but then you wanted another - there is no 5%. IF someone else orders - they will get the 5%. AND if you order multi...

    What is this tractor worth?

    It looks well worn - but it is worth more than what you have in it for sure. I would start at $7,500 or $8000 and work from there.

    Kubotas to avoid

    I am going to disagree with you 100 % - those that run around on M1 Abrams tanks also think a rocket launchers is underpowered!!! I will take my BX into places a M or L will never fit! WILL it pick up 2000 lbs? NOPE - but it will move 600 lbs around at a time quicker than the M or L series...

    How did you mount your fire extinguisher?

    That has to be an experience - having the FE go off without knowing it! That bags seems to have it covered up pretty well - how the heck does it pull the pin in the bag?
