I purchased a service manual for my L1500 on service manual vault but I haven't been able to find a digital operators manual.

Would anybody be willing to e-mail one to me? This thing has a lot of handles and knobs on it and I've went to a lot of trouble to restore it and I hate to blow something up when I finally get the courage to crank it!

Thanks

Send me a pm with your email and I can forward one on to you. It's not for the l1500, but it will give you the basics :D

Maybe Daren he would share the manual he has with us?
Info in the ULTIMATE Sticky found on top of this forum via the cross reference link shows that most likely he sent him the operator manual for L175 for the tractor and if it is aL1500 DT then also the L225DT operator manual for 4wd/DT operation info. These two manuals I'm guessing are found easily enough thru Kubota Books. (hints on where to get North American manuals is in the Ultimate Sticky on top of the Service Repair forum of this board. Links to Kubota Books is there if you need it)

Daren supplied me those years ago! I thought maybe he had acquired the holy grail of manuals ? Lol
I have a copy of the l175 ops manual. Send me your email and I can send it to you. Only thing it won't cover is the 4wd operation.

I just bought a l1500DT and sure could use some info on how to operate it.any and all help would be greatly appreciated
Go to www.kubotabooks.com and look for the L175 manuals.

I replied to your PM. But didn't realize you were looking for info on the L1500 instead of the L1501.

Daughter had some photos on the memory stick I had the manuals on. She borrowed the memory stick and lost it. 😏😏😏

The L175 will work for starting, shifting, steering, brakes and basic operation of the two-wheel drive.
For the four-wheel drive you will want the L185DT or preferably the closer L225DT manual.
