    Set up stabilizers for bush hogging

    When bushogging, should I set my telescoping stabilizers so there is no play or should I put it in the notch that allows a little movement. I’ve never had telescoping stabilizers before. My tractor is an l4701 thanks in advance.

    Front tire width set up

    Thanks for the input. there are a couple reasons- one is thatI trailer my tractor a lot and I have the rear tires on the next to widest setting so I was thinking I’d have a little more even line when loading. The second reason is that I understand the conversation over the pivot points and...

    Front tire width set up

    Woth R1 tires Is it safe to swap sides with my front tires so that a wider stance is achieved or will that mess up the front end. I would keep the tread in the right direction by switching sides but the wheel disc would be mounted to get the wider stance.

    Tiller or disc harrow

    Tiller just because I normally plant food plots in late August and ground is hard and dry. The tiller cuts better than the disk in those conditions for me. I still have a 7’ disc and like it fine. Cheaper for sure just not as good under my most usual application

    Must haves for L4701

    I just purchased a 4701. In my area the mx was hard to find just do to inventory snd the one I did find was around 3k more which was a red line for me. The other issue for me with the mx was the weight. I have a 7000lb trailer and my land is an hour away. I trailer a lot. With the loader...

    Rotary mower size

    In follow up the specs say my 4701 has 39.3 hp at the pto(gear drive) An 84” mower should require 35hp at 5hp/ foot. Am I thinking about that right or is that cutting it to close. I sure don’t want to break anything

    R1 tire availability

    They do. All expenses on them. So I’m ok with how it works out except that I don’t have the tires yet lol. I just thought it was odd and didn’t know if it was localized to my dealer or not.

    R1 tire availability

    The top of the fender is where I understood the issue to be. But the dealer framed it as a Kubota issue. Seems odd.

    3-point implement hook up problems

    I ended up solving this for me by removing the cotter pins from the clevis pin that attaches the telescoping stabilizer to the lift arm so I can quickly detach the telescoping arm. Get full motion of the lift arm and then put it back. It’s not ideal but it’s way better than the killing myself I...

    Rotary mower size

    I’m interested in opinions on minimum hp to run an 84” rotary cutter. I recently purchased an l4701 up from an l3000 dt. I ran a 60” on the 3000. I see some Kubota packages putting a 72” with the l4701 but wondering if I can go 84” without problems. I’ll be mowing around 40 acres of crp per...

    R1 tire availability

    Hello- I recently purchased an L4701. I wanted ag tires but it had R4’s on it. The dealer told me that there was a problem between Kubota and their R1 ag tire supplier and the tires currently available rubbed the fenders and that as soon as the problem was resolved they would call me and swap...

    New 4701 pto kicking out

    Thank you. On my tractor now, the pto is in a turn knob instead of the clutch and lever version I had on my previous tractor so I’m not sure it will work the same as your describing. But I’ll take a look. I appreciate the help.
