    Binders and Chains or Ratchet Straps

    I use self-contained 3 inch ratchet straps in a diagonal pattern from USA Ratchet. I don’t tow/transport very often but, haven’t had any issues or straps coming loose. Mike

    L2501 Turbo: A Journey Defined - The tractor, The comparison, The modification, The results...

    Thank you! Yes, that is the correct place to place an order. ETA is currently 4-6 weeks. We haven’t reached any definitive answer on the timing mod/Turbo combination. Additional testing on more tractors are needed. However, what we believe is happening, is that by removing shims on the pump...

    Thank you! I’m really really happy with the new down pipe! But, should I be ‘butt-hurt’ that guys are now getting L2501 Turbo Kits that a better than mine? It doesn’t seem fair. We’ll be ready when you are. No worries. Mike

    L2501 Turbo: A Journey Defined - The tractor, The comparison, The modification, The results...

    ^^^^ I wouldn’t mess with it until you have your gauges installed and see where you’re at. You may actually want more boost at elevation…depending on your fuel settings and overall performance. At the very least you had the EGT and that’s most important for engine health. Mike

    L2501 Turbo: A Journey Defined - The tractor, The comparison, The modification, The results...

    The Turbocharger is good out of the box for 6-7psi at full load. I did adjust my waste gate to ‘near-maximum’ to deliver 9-10psi at full load. It wasn’t necessary but part of the testing process. If you’re not seeing much boost, it probably doesn’t have enough load. As an example, I can put...

    Here’s a few pics of the Turbo pipes along with….the new downpipe; The new downpipe flows the same as the original pipe but, offers better clearance and easier installation. Mike

    LX3520 or L3302?

    Agreed. Well stated. Mike

    Truck / trailer questions

    Agreed. I sold my Ford SuperDuty Diesel 4x4 and replaced it with a Toyota Tundra 5.7 4x4. I really really enjoyed the SuperDuty. Great truck and TONS of power but, I only drive my truck a couple times a week and seldomly tow with it. It just wasn’t worth it having an $85K lawn ornament...

    Wash and Wax

    Not quite but, I’d sure let you wash and wax mine! Mike

    Spec’ing a new tractor

    Agreed. Well, kidding aside, the Turbo Kit makes the L2501 a very capable beast; …and 35 PTO HP never hurts. However, with the possibility of a front mounted snowblower…the LX might be the ticket. But, if the OP is concerned about size/weight, the Grand L (in its many forms) can be...

    L2501 - What can't it do...

    ^^^^ You could also look into wheel spacers which will help with stability on hills. Mike

    Spec’ing a new tractor

    The LX2610 is a great machine. I’m not sure of your budget but, if you stay with Kubota, from what you describe, I’d probably be looking at the Grand L for its larger size and weight (assuming you don’t mind emissions equipment). Mike

    5 Acres: LX2620 vs LX3520

    I was concerned that you might be operating in high elevations which could contribute to a loss of power should you decide to purchase the LX2610. You’re good. Mike

    5 Acres: LX2620 vs LX3520

    The LX2610 should be adequate for your needs. The LX3520 will simply get certain tasks done quicker. What elevation is the property? Mike

    Engines at altitude

    I don’t doubt it. The L2501’s modified with the Turbo kits are performing exceptionally well in the high elevations. Without ANY fuel adjustments (just bolting on the Turbo kit and using factory fuel settings) they’re reporting a significant reduction of EGT temperatures, reduction/elimination...

    D1703 engine

    ^^^^ All you have to do is get your tractor over here and give us 30 days and it’ll have a new Turbo Kit! ;) We’ll definitely have a Turbo Kit for the L2502. We just need a tractor and a bit more research needs to be done on the injection pump and engine internals as mentioned previously. Mike

    That’s a fact! Mike

    D1703 engine

    ^^^ I’m pretty sure there’s some additional power to be gained by adding fuel and advancing the injection timing (and possibly increasing the RPM limit). In time, we’ll be developing a Turbo system for the L2502, however, more research needs to be done on the new injection pump and engine...

    D1703 engine

    You can’t trust the parts diagram. The L2502 pump is a different design. However, you’re more than welcome to pull it off and play with the shims. Please take pictures if you do. Mike
