I have a LX2610 cab version on order. Should be delivered in time for the winter here in Idaho and (hopefully) some snowblowing. I'm interested in purchasing a set of the covers. Please let me know how you are handling the orders this year. Thanks! Randy

Hi Tetonview,
I sent you a message via "conversation" regarding a set of covers. If you select the "Envelope" in top right corner of your screen you should find it. Thanks!
Hi. The kubota fan-boys get mad when anyone suggests something non-Kubota but I would really suggest that you consider a KIOTI DK4210SE Cab model. I recently upgraded from an L2501 and the difference is astounding - and I didn't break the bank! I really think (after a lot of my own research) that the Kitoti offers a lot more than Kubota in this size tractor. You can also consider DK5510SE and the DK6010SE - these are 55 and 60HP variants of the DK4210SE. You'll love whatever you get - just go as big as the budget allows.

I looked at the Kioti's yesterday. The closest dealer with a model in stock that I'd like to see is about 2.5 hours from here, so if problems it's a half-day trip to deal with it--would that be a deal breaker for you? The Kubota dealer 20 minutes from me has a great rep. I got references including single and business --they all raved about this family-owned dealership that's been around since 1955.--the sons are the owners now. Per all reports they take care of their customers very well. Only one seemed to have a quality-control tractor issue where a glow-plug broke and destroyed the cylinder; the dealer got a new engine installed for him in less than 10 days, and that was last year during supply-chain issues. I'll check out the Kioti dealers; given the proximity and reputation of the Kobuta dealership, how much would that influence your decision?

Thanks again for your help! Shopping for a tractor has opened up a whole new world of confusing lol.

I think you are going to have a lot of fun (and a lot of fun learning as well) regardless of which you choose. I'm envious!! All things being equal, the Kubota seems like the good choice with a known-good dealer nearby. I guess the real question is IF all things are equal. Many Kubota dealers (and Kioti dealers as well) don't have the inventory they used to have. If the Kubota dealer doesn't have a model in stock that will work for you and the Kioti dealer does, or vice-versa, that has to factor in. And price has to factor in. Make yourself a spreadsheet (like one of the ones I posted) and look at the specs and prices of comparable tractors. What does the Kioti dealer have in stock (and built) for you to look at, sit in, and drive? Anything worthy of consideration? If yes, for me some of the most fun is the "hunt"!

I would make the 5-hour drive to go check them out and on the same day, also go sit-in and drive a Kubota. Which do you like better ergonomically? If I was you I'd be leaning toward the Kubota... but it might be enlightening to check out the Kioti. Again, in any case, I think you are going to have a lot of fun!!!
Bought the Danuser Intimidator. As others have said, the grapple tip is impossible to see from the cab seat and a forward-looking camera is a near necessity. A ground guide assistant is a poor substitute. The long "snout" length and implement weight severely reduces digging and root braking ability on anything but a FEL with heavy breakout capacity. The tractor must be heavily ballasted. Grabbing smaller trees with the grapple's pincers and pushing straight on generally works best for me with my light ballasting and short/narrow tractor footprint.

I will repost after some tractor reconfiguration and learning how to best use this well made heavy duty implement. As things stand now, my tractor and experience are the primary limiting factors
got a really nice Kubota B2910 for sale with only 240 hours. Can anyone help me with the year? Serial #51678
Ken, I'm interested in a set of mats for my 2019 L2501 HST. Let me know what I need to do on this end? Thanks, Glen
Got a question , just for shyts and giggles I stoped inthe chevy dealer and asked about the 3 litter diesel in a truck like yours. He told me they dont make them I said yes they do cause I know a man that has one. And he walked away,, Now my question is, was this a lot truck or a special order? If special order would you please be kind enough to send me the info so I can find a dealer that will talk to me, at least I will have the stuff I need to talk about it. Thanks much and that is a sweet looking beasty you have there

Mine was a custom order, but I test drove one on the lot before I ordered mine. The reason mine was custom is just due to the options I wanted. The 3.0l was an option on the RST and up models. There were some higher trim level trucks for sale, but i didnt want to spend the money on trinkets. the RST was the lowest model offered with the diesel upgrade. (then i added some other stuff). You should be able to go to any chev dealer and ask. not sure why that salemans said you cant get one.

Orange forum, I was mistaken about what I was charged for on my MX5200. There was not any new oil put into the transmission, only the filters were changed at $48 and $68 plus a $42 labor charge. Sorry about the wrong information, I just received the invoice today. Why do filters need to be changed, but not the fluid? As I go up the ladder with customer help, I was told that labor is never covered on a PSB ( the 2020-0528 i had no idea that I would have to pay labor. I spoke to level one customer service and he was going to kick it up to the next level. He said the next level reviews cases on an individual basis, but are not obligated to respond to complaints. I’ll keep you posted. I’m am fighting this, even though I expect to lose, because I am mad at Kubota and it feels good to try.

wow, now that's bigger than I thought. And wonderful dealer. Gave me plenty of his time on learning the control, too. Can't wait to get some seat time.

picked up the Mr. Funnel F12, and a few implements from palletforks.com.
As of August 27, 2021, waiting for my BX23s to arrive. "Maybe in September?"
The only knowledge I have is from printing off the owners manual to read and
watching as many YouTubes as I can. I will likely never have anything to offer
here, so I am here to learn and appreciate the experience(s) of all you tractor
veterans. Thank you.

Good to hear I'm not the only one waiting on delivery. Actually I'm headed out on the 14th to pick it up along with it's trailer. I live in the desert and don't figure on dealing with much snow at all. Sand & rocks. Already have a ton of "to do's" on the books and family over in Cali has expressed an interest in adding to the list. Hope you have as much fun with yours as I plan to.

Congratulations, SGT13, I'm envious. I ordered mine on 02-July and was just informed this morning that the soonest I "might" see it is the end of October. Sign of the times.... Good luck with yours!

Huh. Interesting. I ordered my Kubota on July 2nd. A friend ordered his comparable Bobcat TLB from the same dealership that I ordered from... several weeks AFTER I ordered mine. A short time after I found out today that Kubota hasn't even started building my tractor yet, his new Bobcat arrived at his place. So, I guess, for anybody on the fence and researching what they may wish to buy ... do the math.
ok so i am currently in a stupper with my b6200 . I did a bench test with the starter and solenoid and I hooked up with battery cables the positive lead that is on top of solenoid grounded the negative to the outside of the starter. I then touched the connecter that goes to ignition to the positive with a gator clip and after a couple sparky moments could see and hear the solenoid engage and spin the gear that is engaged to fly wheel. I then bolted up starter and solenoid then hooked up battery to the electrical system and start to test from the battery to the starter with a test light .The top connecter has power but after that dead all the way to ignition switch. So the next thing to check would be the fusible link that is starting to show its age by falling apart, plastic is crumbling around metal connecters.Then the next thing is the safety switch for the clutch and up the line to the ignition switch. I checked the two fuses and they are good no electricity at that point.
Hello all, I have just bought a Kubota M4500DT. I have browsed this forum and found some answers, thank you all. Special thanks to JohnDB who has helped me with manuals and diagrams. The engine was a nightmare to fire up. White smoke and running very rough until it eventually fired and once it was warm it started straight away. I read these are renowned for hard starting, ( this may help others) so I went through everything, figuring there is bad glow plugs for white smoke unburnt fuel, well they all tested individually for resistance okay, took two out and put them to the battery and they glowed nice and hot. I have a more modern Kubota excavator KX 161-3 and the glow shows on the key switch, wait a few seconds turn key and and fires. Well this is my first tractor and I have been turning the handle left for the glow but not looking for long because i thought the glow wire was an indicator which wasnt working and not part of the actual start circuit.

It tries to fire but takes so long to get running, so I read turn the knob for a minute or more. Finally got the wiring circuit diagram and here is to my embarrasment ( I am a last century electrician so I should know better) There is no power to the glow plugs at all. Dumb as, thinking there must be power to some plugs for it to fire. Turns out I have been firing it without any glow plugs with power to them at all. I ripped the dash out and and sure enough the wire was pulled out from the start switch to the glow wire. A quick glow now and bang she starts straight up. I dont think this tractor has ever been serviced I have never seen anything as negelected, with a bit of luck I may be able to save it. ( continued)

Which brings me to my questions if anyone can help? Oil was as black as, including transmission so I changed everything. Some metal filings on the hydraulic magnet, grease like grey graphite, I assume is metal on the magnet and also some 5 to 10mm shavings. I will post a picture of these because they worrry me a bit. There is about half a dozen thin and a bit springy like a piece of feeler guage. My main problem is the 3 point linkage was working fine and after I have done the oil change using STOU 15w/40 the 3 point linkage stopped working.

Now I took the Oil filter out to clean and also the canister from the hydraulic pump to clean any shavings. To be able to get the canister off I took the hydraulic steering connections off the pump. I am pretty sure I replaced the filter properly and all the orings on the hydraulic connections on the pump. Hydraulic steering is working fine. I hope there are no stupid questions but I read where hydraulics dont need to be bled? I have put about just under 45 litres of tranny oil in and its halfway up the dipstick so although I am not to the top I wouldnt think its low on oil, any ideas anyone?
Good morning. I upgraded my Ford 601 Workmaster to a Kubota L3010 this spring. I LOVE it!! It pulled my two bottom plow and five foot ripper disc fabulously for my garden. My next attachment needs to be a box blade for my driveway. I cant find anything official on what my tractor can handle. It's 30 HP and nearly 3000 pounds. Can it handle a six foot BB? I think from what I have read it will handle a 5 footer with no problems but that is a tad narrow and not stocked anywhere near me. Would I be happy with the 6 footers that I can find? Second question, how much tiller can that tractor handle. Again, I am thinking 5 foot but think it has to be offset to cover wheels.? I appreciate your advice, wisdom and person experience--especially if you have my tractor or a similar one. Thanks in advance.
GKent,

Hello. Is this unit still available? Can you tell me what tractor you had this mounted on and if you have the mounting hardware for it? I did not see the hardware in the pictures.
