I just ordered Fuel guard, HST and Transmission filter guards from Paul and Kathy at Specialty last week. They are really great people to work with. I have always appreciated Pauls work. I use his light perches too which are put to the test in the woods.

speaking of woods, I was going to go guards free, until I got under the machine after brush hogging and saw the rub marks from brush all over the filters.

I bought the hydraulic and fuel Zooks guards and the 5 Eleven Designs front grill guard before I busted either one. I’m thinking about rear light guards after hearing about people busting them with quick hitches. Mine do barely clear, but I don’t know those light guard would help or not.

Ordered my grill guard from lown performance a couple months too late but finally got it, after I put a couple of holes in the grill ha
I only punched one hole in my grille before ordering a guard from Lown. Just this minute finished installing the new $90 grille. The chin guard also easily holds 2 x 10' of 3/8 chain with grab hooks.

I absolutely agree!
Paul and Kathy Short are truly great people!
I may be prejudiced though,.....I lived in NFLD. many years ago.
In my opinion: Newfoundlanders are absolutely THE BEST !

I just got a Lown Performance grill guard for my L6060 and the fit is pretty bad as you can see in the pictures. There is a giant gap in between the Kubota grill and the Lown guard. Also, it is under a ton of tension to get it to attach. My middle brace for the stock Kubota guard sticks out past the front of the guard and the Lown grill hits it.

I like your products, but you are missing a big market without something for the BX series of tractors. I am inclined to believe that the BX model is one of Kubota's biggest sellers.

For 2022, it appears that Kubota will be offering a grill guard for a good price. Hopefully they will be backwards compatible for previous years. See this video about upcoming things, brush guard is at 7:40.

Not sure about half price as he mentioned as I have heard dealer cost is north of $200 but that is yet to be determined. Who knows what retail will be. Looks pretty thin and flimsy with large holes but I may be a bit biased lol. I plan to buy one as soon as they are available and do a comparison to the 5elevendesignz.com products. Regarding backward compatibility, the main guard shown is not the same as current L series. Looks to be from an LX or completely new ..

I have The 511 designz grill guard and couldn’t be happier with the fitment, and the paint on it. Beautiful product for the price. I could have easily had a friend burn me out and bend up a custom guard, but by the time you measure it, draw it, drive to the steel place, buy the steel, fit it, get it coated, and drive back and fourth 4 times, you might as well just buy one done and bolt it on. Highly recommend their guard.

RichardAaronlx2610, could you reveal the brand/name of your 3rd function kit? I've never seen one on that side thus far. Looks great, thanks in advance! (y)
