Made my first post today but been around here and TBN for a year or so. My wife and I mow over 10 acres of pasture weekly. The bulk is mowed by the Bx 2670 with MMM and L2600 with 5 ft Land Pride. We mow the yard about 2 acres with the BX and a Z121S and the on the lake and road ditch which is 9 round trips at 4/10 mile each on a 1983 G3200. We ride the farm on the RTV. We also have a Ford 3000 but hardly use it.

I’ve had my kubota Z411 going on three years now sweet machine. It’s currently in the shop getting a new idler pulley and new blades. No charge on the pulley under warranty. But the blades and labor $150.00 ouch.

New to this forum, but not to tractorbynet

I own a 1983 L305DT (bought new) and a 2006 F3680 (bought used). Both have been good machines - with occasional mechanical issues, but nothing that we haven't been able to resolve. We own 330 acres including a 62 acre campground in central New York just above the PA border. I use the L305DT to move and park campers, give wagon rides to the campers, and do all kinds of odds and ends around the property. My F3680 is my main mowing machine and it's a 6' beast! I like to say it floats like a butterfly and stings like a bee! It does pretty fast work of the acres of grass I have to mow every week, and even during this extremely wet spring it gets the job done with the exception of a couple wet areas that still haven't dried out enough! I still have my Toro Groundsmaster 220D with its 60" deck, but the Kubota has really taken over. I took the ROPS off because it always seemed to add another level of awareness - especially mowing around the fronts of fifth wheel campers. My biggest complaint to Kubota would be that instead of cup holders they ought to address garbage and litter holders.

Kubota L260 With King Cutter 6 Foot Finish Mower

Picked up this L260 a couple years ago to give my 8N Ford a break from mowing.

The two cylinder diesel engine has more torque that the Ford 4 cylinder gas engine, so it can run the mower deck easily. Makes mowing a snap!

Good morning, not much of writer more reader. I am Michael live on 3/4 acre and now I am finally retire. I got my main tinkering tractor is a B600. Back in the early 70's. Now I have other tractors from Cub cadet, Simplicity, to Sears or more know as Craftsman which bye the way always breaks down. I am working on the dash of the Kubota it had problems and had been all cobble together. It always ran; hard to start even with glow plugs! Use it all the time to pull empty trailers a few cars. I plow with it mow grass. Sorta like a toy tractor. Kind of beat up but I bought it that way. Just change filters and oil use clean fuel and it always been good to me. Hard to find parts! I had a rim rust out look for months for used one no luck. There a used salvage yard in Kentucky but bye the time I drove there and bought the part it would probably cost me more. And I have not heard real good reviews about it. I bought a new rim from dealer been 3 weeks now should be in soon. Price was ouch! The pto runs counter clockwise that can be a issue. The next stumble block is the repair knowledge for these tractors. Very little! I have a hydraulic lever it was use on a front bucket that didn't come with it. I would like to use it but I can't figure out how to hook it up. Also no idea how to attach bucket I can weld and build one. There seems to be no frame on these units. Been 3 years dogging this project. The 3 point works fine. Dealer said he might be able to install one but he wanted 3.800 dollars to do it. Of course he no written data offer for me. Wow! Yea I should bought a Massey or Ford but this orange thing just grows on you and the price was right. But as all things they are getting rare to find. Also there a grey market tractor out there I been told not a true Kubota but some parts will interchange. Well I bent you folks ear enough backing out of here and hope to learn are offer advice. Michael
