I have a kubota kx161-3 mini. It cranks fine, but it idles down when a load is put on the hydraulics. It will also idle up randomly when it is sitting at idle and I am not on it. I have noticed a few electrical issues with the machine lately, so I am sure that is what it is, but I am having trouble finding the issue.
Any advise??

You have auto idle on? Or ac on when cold? It will do that
The auto idle is on, but it does the same thing when it is off.
and it is an open cab.
I potentially found part of the problem yesterday. Negative battery cable needs to be replaced. I tightened it up as much as I could and it helped a little. Still loose though. Going to get a new one.

So you have air conditioning all the time ha ha
