Just got the new tractor a month ago... we're still in our "getting to know you" phase.

Adds:
  • Rear Remote
  • 3rd Function Valve
  • Right Side Fender Handle
  • Steering Wheel Knob (Kubota, of course)
  • HST Filter Brush Guard, left side
  • Loader Hydraulic Block Brush Guard, right side
  • Upgraded Sway Control Bars
  • Chainguards on Rotary Cutter - Front n Rear
  • Heavy Duty Front Brushguard
  • Filled Tires

Planned Upgrades:
EA Bucket Toothbar
ROPS Light Bar

Fixes to Date:
  • Fuel Leak at fuel filter (loose fitting)
  • Hydraulic Leak at HST fluid cooling radiator (loose fitting)
  • Properly installed rear tires (my dealer is an idiot, installed them inside out when I asked for the R1s to be widened to their max)
  • Removed, remounted steering wheel (so the "K" at the center is oriented properly when I drive straight ahead)

Do not bother to move the K in the steering wheel. The steering wheel does not return to the same spot since it is hydraulic steering.

LOL... I can trace the mechanical linkage - and that definitely has a set range L and R. And my K has stayed poker straight now for 2 weeks....

Its already been moved - Guess I'll "keep an eye on it" as they say... but I dont expect it to change. Hopefully I'm not disappointed later.😉

Nice work to date. Where did you get the filter brush guards, I’m interested in some of those?

I got them from a small, independent fabricator here in Ohio. Super easy install. Powder coated and came with hardware.

I like that they protect well, but still leave plenty of room to work (for example change the HST filter) without removing the guard.

Install details vid can be found on a youtuber called "Pheasant Lane Farm"

Note to forum mods: Normally, I'd never post that detail on a web forum, but this guy has facebook and youtube ads all over the place. Did try to make it so that screen scraper bots come up empty, tho.

What's the p/n on the right fender handle?
I'm also interested in the filter guards, but I'm not in OH, so I'll live without them. It's not a huge concern for me.

Zooks welding shipped the brush guard and filter guards to me via UPS. Those two Hydraulic filter guards fit together in a roughly shoebox sized box. Shipping was reasonable.
