    Land Pride production and site down due to ransomware attack.

    I've been checking Land Pride's website periodically today in the hope of getting some specs on an implement along with a manual but it's been down all day. When I stopped by the local dealer they told me that Land Pride's production and website are down due to a ransomware attack. These...

    The truth about 3-point PTO rear push versus rear pull snow blowers?

    I recently bought a used 3-point PTO push behind Land Pride snow blower that I found on Craigslist. Land Pride only offers the push type as far as I can tell. Earlier in the week a friend and his wife stopped by the house to pick me up and head out for dinner and I showed him the snow blower...

    Craigslist comes through again with a snow blower and a 3-point receiver.

    I saw a Land Pride SB1574 snow blower on Craigslist a couple of days ago that was advertised as being three years old and having around 20 hours on it. I noticed that it had hydraulic chute rotation and hydraulic deflector angle and looked to be in good condition. I called the local dealer to...

    How to resolve this septic outflow and parking issue

    About 2 years ago I dug out close to 40 yards of dirt and rock with the BX to double the size of the parking area next to the house before a company came out and asphalted about 9,000 sq. ft. for me. In hindsight I should have dug out another 40 yards to triple the parking area but it was slow...

    Crazy steel prices!

    I ordered some steel yesterday for two upcoming projects. One is to build a dolly for the 106 gallon Jon Dow fuel storage tank I bought a few months ago, and the other is for a custom grill/brush guard for the MX. The cost of the steel below which includes a couple of cuts was a little over...

    Anyone using a rear remote "float" valve?

    I have three spring center rear remotes on my MX, two are used for the top-n-tilt and the third to run a ram on a Land Pride rear blade. I added the same set up to the new MX but am thinking that I might be better off with changing one to a spring center with float. My thought here is that I...

    New dump trailer to tow behind the MX6000 ... and the F250.

    I've had a PJ 16ft dump trailer for a couple of years now and a few months ago asked the local PJ dealer to get me price on a single axle 10'x5' dump trailer. They wanted 40% down to place an order so I passed on that but still wanted a single axle dump trailer to pull behind the MX as well as...

    12% surcharge just announced on Kubota products and up to 20% on implements ...

    .... according to my local dealer this afternoon. Thank goodness I put a deposit down a few weeks back. :oops:

    Tractor Time with Tim - LX3310 and RHINOAG TS10 Flex-Wing problems

    I've started watching Tractor Time with Tim recently and enjoyed today's video about the challenges he faced trying to get a RHINOAG TS10 Flex-Wing hooked up to his LX3310. Short version ... he wasn't successful. I don't think he bought the TS10 specifically for the Kubota since he talks about...

    In need of a quality sprayer for weed control.

    I bought a 55 gallon sprayer back in 2016 from the local Kubota dealer to use with the BX and although it wasn't cheap there was nothing quality about it. I'm looking for a quality sprayer I can use to spray 15 to 20 acres efficiently. It'll be on the back of an MX6000 with cab so can anyone...

    Modifying a utility trailer to improve the towing experience.

    A few weeks ago I towed my MX and rotary cutter to a friend"s place and the load felt heavy, really heavy. There was no doubt that the rear of the truck was sagging and some members in the "post photos of your tractor and trailer" thread suggested that I invest in a weight distributing hitch. I...

    Kubota loader/bucket weights

    I've been searching for Kubota loader/bucket weights but can't find anything. Not sure why Kubota doesn't include this data on their tractor spec sheets. I'm looking for the weights of these models. LA1065 LA1154

    Why are Kioti tractors so much cheaper ... and only six weeks out?

    I had a local Kioti dealer put together a quote for an RX7320PCC with a cab today, and fully loaded it was $48,981 which includes a 3rd function valve kit and two additional remotes at $406 and $463 each. A similar M7060 fully loaded and with a cab and without any rear remotes or 3rd function...

    Down the rabbit hole of comparing tractors that have a cab.

    I bought an MX6000 ROPs model back in February and absolutely love the tractor with one caveat. It's a perfect size for what I need with plenty of power, and there's the feeling that you're only paying for tractor and no fluff, but the dust while mowing is a problem. Now that I'm mowing 50...

    Dumb question to start off the week! When you buy a new implement with hydraulics, is there oil in the cylinders and hoses?

    Working on the EA grapple today got me wondering whether or not an implement with hydraulics will show up with hydraulic fluid in the cylinders and hoses. The reason I ask is that Kubota is quite adamant about the type of hydraulic fluid to run in our tractors with UDT-2 being the recommend...

    Hearing protection with music when running the tractor? What do you use?

    I have a set of Bose noise cancelling ear buds that I use when I fly but I was wondering what folks here like when mowing for hours on end. I'm looking for a recommendation for a set of ear buds that will allow me to listen to music on my phone via Bluetooth while also protecting my hearing...

    Adding three sets of LEDs to the MX.

    I ordered three sets of Hella LEDs this week to install on the MX. A set of spot and floods facing forward and a set of floods facing rearwards. The kits come with wiring harnesses, relays and switches but I ordered a set of my favorite waterproof switches and will be using those instead...

    Kubota workshop manual and 50 hour service coming up.

    I recently ordered and received the Kubota MX5400/MX6000 workshop manual which was pricey at $186.93 but good to have. I was hoping for a nice Kubota orange 3-ring binder but no luck, just a lot of pages "shrink wrapped". I picked up an oil filter, transmission filter and hydraulic fluid...

    Rock bucket on Craigslist

    I don't know a whole lot about rock buckets but they seem simple enough and it's definitely an implement I could put to good use. I found one on Craigslist with about 2 hours on it that's built for a skid steer so it should fit the MX without any trouble. Not sure how wide it is but it looks...

    The top-n-tilt top link is already damaged. User error or poor design?

    I was using the pressure washer to clean the MX this morning and noticed that the end of the top-n-tilt top link where it mounts to the top of the quick hitch looked odd. On closer inspection I realized that the outer ring has stretched into a rectangular oval if that's such a thing. I've been...
