    Anything wrong with this tank return setup? Pics included

    I have a B2650. I'm adding a monoblock valve that requires a tank return. New to hydraulics. As I understand it, the tractor has two tank returns - one from the 3PT and one from the loader valve. My plan is to add a manifold to the loader valve return and then plumb the loader valve and new...

    Any other tank ports?

    Hi. I have a B2650 that I'm adding a valve to. The valve is a monoblock valve which requires a tank return. The only port I know for sure is a tank port is the one connecting the loader valve to the tank. My plan as of now is to add a manifold to this line and connect the loader valve and the...

    Backhoe Connections - So Confused...

    I have a B2650 with a BH77 backhoe. Bought it like that. The backhoe connects/disconnects with two hydraulic lines which are looped when the backhoe is disconnected. I want to add a three-spool valve on the back of my tractor and run it in line with the backhoe lines when the backhoe is...

    Backhoe Hydraulics - Other Uses?

    I have a B2650 with a BH77 and a third function up front. I don't know much about hydraulics, but based on following lines on my tractor, it seems hydraulic pressure comes from the power beyond port on the loader valve to the solenoid valve for third function, and from the power beyond port on...

    Newbie PTO Question - Sheared Pin

    Hi. New Kubota B2650 owner (since October 2020). Earlier today, I was using an aerator/slit seeder (old Olathe 37/38) I purchased to renovate my lawn. Things were going great until I caught a rock that got stuck in the aerator and caused the PTO shaft shear bolt to shear. Fortunately, no damage...

    What is this?

    Relatively new B2650 owner. Removed the backhoe and hooked up the three-point hitch for the first time today. Noticed this thing hose-clamped to the lower part of the ROPS. What is it? I tried searching, but I don't even know how to describe it other than "hose clamped bracket," which didn't...

    Left Loader Pin Sliding Out

    This is my second week with my new B2650 TLB. Quick question... I noticed that the left-side loader pin keeps sliding out. It obviously never comes fully out because of the T-handle and retainer and (as far as I can tell) has no impact on the operation of the machine. Is this normal? Any ideas...

    Position Control "Storage" Position

    Just took delivery of a B2650 TLB today! Very excited! I've run TLBs before, and the delivery guy was fantastic answering my new owner questions. Forgot to ask one thing, though: Where should the 3-point lift arms be set when I'm not using them, such as when the backhoe is on? All the way up...

    Insurance Recommendations

    I'm planning to purchase a new B2650 and take advantage of the 84 months/0% financing. I spoke with my insurance agent today (who I like and trust, and who has consistently provided us with better pricing when compared apples-to-apples with other providers), and she said that the tractor would...
