Very nice product, have the set in my garage just ready to put on. So far it hasn’t been cold enough to need yet...I am sure it will be soon.

Great service from the seller too!

Wouldn't this cause an overheating issue?
wacnstac, as I described in the thread referenced above, on my B2650 while using all the covers the tractor's engine temp didn't start to significantly rise until the outside temps were in the +10°F to +15°F or above range. Then you simply start removing the covers as needed. You just need to watch your tractors temp gauge. Especially, once the outside temps are getting above 0°F. In temps below 0°F and colder they sure help to keep the engine temps in the midrange, hydraulic oil warm, diesel from gelling, and ice/snow from building up on or under the hood. Maybe some of the others that have purchased the set will chime in and give their opinion too. Some have given their reviews in that same thread. Thanks for your interest.
Regards,
David

Hi sliverr, I haven't sold just the front cover by itself yet but certainly can. Let me do some thinking and I'll send you a message. The front is a larger piece, generates more material waste, and takes longer to sew. Let me think about that and I'll have a price for you shortly. Thanks for your interest. I know the shipping also costs the same whether I ship one piece or three. You posed a good question!
David

Edit: Thought about it overnight and here's what I propose and will do the same for anybody else interested in just the front grill cover only at this time. Since most of the work and time goes into the front cover I will ship to your door (in the contiguous states here in the US) for $110. Shipping to Canada or elsewhere will have to include a small additional fee depending on location. If you later decide to add the side panels you sure can do that too. Just the front cover might be a great solution for those that still have to move snow or work in temperatures that don't drop much below 0°F. Thanks, sliverr for your interest and question!!

I wonder how close the fit would be for a B7510? Likely not close enough, darn it! Would love a set to keep the snow off the engine during snow blower operations...

I generally don't run in that cold of temperatures when blowing snow. My primary interest in this is to prevent snow ingestion into the air filter when the snow is really flying.

wacnstac, just the front part might be all you'd need in that case. You could sure give that a try.

Kubota B3350 B2650 Winter front, Grille covers update:
I have a couple of new sets ready to go again, so no wait time for anybody interested. Also, a member here (username: Vanquisher) had purchased a set from me and soon after found out Kubota’s front cover was due him. So now he has both and would like to part with an unneeded piece. If you’re interested in an official Kubota front piece or otherwise, please contact him for details or options. These will fit either the B3350 or the B2650 models. Here's a link to Vanquisher's post: https://www.orangetractortalks.com/forums/showthread.php?p=374245#post374245

Regards,
David

A kind offer from a B3350 owner allowed me to use his Kubota front mask to see how well my side skirts would match up to it. Surprisingly, they were a perfect fit. With that result, I can offer a set of two side skirts for sale to those B3350 owners that already have their Kubota front mask. They will be a plug and play fit and being easy on/off just like the Kubota mask. 2019/2020 winter price: $95 delivered in the US contiguous states. Canada: $15 US funds Additional. See some pics matched up with the Kubota mask here:

I bought a set of these winter grill covers from Bird Dog last fall. They are very nicely built and fit perfectly. He was excellent to work with as well.

It has not been very cold here (Northern Virginia) and we have gotten zero snow, so I have only had minimal opportunity to test if these fix my cold weather Regen issue. I am pretty confident they have, though. I got to use the tractor twice when temps were hovering around freezing this winter while using the grille covers. It kept the engine temperature up nicely and a regen ran successfully during one of the uses. I believe every other cold weather regen failed previously and shut the tractor off for about 30 mins or so.

Someone asked about overheating. My experience so far (and I have the cab for reference): I used all 3 covers, the two sides and the front. I was able to run full throttle full time without the heat indicator going above 4 bars (well within normal range). The only time it started to rise is after I turned the AC on. Then I removed the front cover and it came down to 3 bars.

I highly recommend these covers for anyone who needs more heat in their (compatible) tractor and especially if you have a 3350 and use it in the cold.

Still making these? I’d probably buy a couple sets. Up in Canada
Hi cdika17, and yes I've just started gearing up and sewing a few sets again. In fact, I've just sent a couple sets recently to Canada. It's hard to pin down how they charge for shipping but I've found the cheapest is to mail via USPS First Class and a single set to Canada adds between $15-$20 for the extra shipping charges. I'm guessing if you were to have two sets sent that the shipping would be less than double that. I could find out. I'll send you a PM or feel free to send me one also.

Very soon, I'll have a set of covers that will fit the new model LX2610 and presumably the LX3310.

Thanks for your interest!
