I placed my order for a B2601 with a backhoe, 42" LP pallet forks, 54" LP box blade, 3rd function and LP grapple at the end of December. I just got a call from the dealer that everything but the grapple is in! I almost feel silly being this excited. Estimate for the grapple is sometime between March and May.

Anything I should be on the lookout for during delivery? Must have tools to take care of this tractor?

Congrats! I have the same tractor. Very happy. Post some pics. I had a tiny leak at a hydraulic line on the loader. Simple extra partial turn on the fitting fixed that. I need to check my crows foot tools to ensure I have the correct sizes for other fittings which are a little concealed. Congrats again. Enjoy!

Just another tidbit which I eventually figured out….and the dealer didn’t know!, I couldn’t get the rear pto to operate my chipper even tho I thought I was following the manual. Tractor safety switches would shut it down.
The seat needs to be popped UP, NOT tilted forward. In my opinion the manual wasn’t over clear.

A few spare pillows helps when sleeping next to it in the garage the first few nights. Be sure to tell the wife/GF that you'll be away for a while.

Congrats! Check the front axle oil level.
Good advice. Even my RTV1100 front axle was low. From the number of times I have read this, seems like dealers don't like checking it when they charge you for the PDI.

Congrats. If you don't have one, get a click torque wrench. Changed the MFWD oil in the JD (waiting for B2601) a couple days ago. Needed to take the front wheels off to more easily catch the oil from the MFWD. In torquing them back (to 133 ft lb) with my old lever torque wrench, I needed the wife to watch the torque reading, and she had trouble with my hands in the way, etc. Be much easier and only 1 person needed with a click torque wrench. Kubota says to check a whole bunch of torques at each 50.

Congratulations! I have the same tractor and love it! (-:

For tools, a decent grease gun and 1/2" drive clicker torque wrench (with sockets) would be my suggestion starting out.

(have been waiting on my BH for several months now. Good news, since it was quoted on the original invoice, any price hikes won't affect the pricing when it does finally come in.)

I bought myself and got it for Xmas day: a lube shuttle grease gun. LOTS better to avoid mess of retracting the plunger, pulling old cartridge out, putting new one in, freeing of air, etc. The lube shuttle cartridge just screws right in. On lube.shuttle.us web site. Buy it there, about $10 less than on Amazon.

Congratulations post pics when you can. Start a new account to fund the accessories - practice in the mirror “need a new attachment to do that project for you honey”
