Spot on....wish I had done this instead. When turning torso to right in order to look behind, 3pt lever is now just barely reachable. A future mod to correct a mod is in order.Also the three point lever, I bent over to follow the contour of the fender. Allows me to exit to the right side (adding a step help with that).
Would you happen to have a PN for the control stick knob?I removed the OEM knob with the air trick ( thanks to Orange Talks! ) When I was test driving tractors the Kioti knobs were very nice. The Kubota shaft (model LX2610) is 13mm, the Kioti inside diameter is 12mm. I used a drill and reemed the Kioti knob and forced it on. But as stated in this string - the lever is to long. I will likely be cutting the shaft down a couple of inches. If that makes the control less sloppy then even better. I can't believe Kubota uses that tiny cheap knob on an almost 30K tractor. Isn't the loader knob the most used feature in the cab? Whoever approved the knob choice at Kubota should be fired, rehired and fired again!
Interesting - mine came in perfect condition and it even had the screw taped to the knob. I believe they were listed as factory take offs. But e-bay is the wild west and I don't have a lot of faith in the sellers.Do NOT buy from this Ebay seller. I did and they sent me a USED knob with cracks. The Ebay seller is a shame and tried to blame it on USPS. Obviously USPS did not put wear, silicon and stress cracks in the loader knob advertised as NEW. without packaging. Buy BEWARE big time. I am filing a complaint with Ebay. Sorry for the rant and no animosity to the op.
There is also a dealer Perry Power that sells new - they do not come with the securing screw and cost $ 30.00 vs $15.00 for the used.Interesting - mine came in perfect condition and it even had the screw taped to the knob.
