like there petals alot better than new holland, like deere ones. mine has the hydro but the petal is a rocker, i had a mower at work that way too always hated that trying to work it with boots is a pain. always thought 30-40h compact was a decent size, so that be a 1540? thats why i got mine has the clearance and can run 6ft stuff. we have alot of mud and trees, light and small is good most of the time. never had or operated an orange one, one of the guys in my club has one its between there subcompact and mine, tlb, but he just uses is for mowing his yard mostly. the only thing broke so far was the hydraulic fitting and he said they came right out and changed it. he dont work it though but it was nice clearing trails with that
Yeah it's a 1540 , the pedals are separate it's very easy to drive you know your tractors quite well

I end up using the Kubota hydrostatic pedal “cruise control” lock more than I thought when bushhogging pasture. Also finally replaced the seat with a higher back support one from Northern Tool, but did have to buy 4 short metric bolts to fit. Alot more comfortable, should have done it sooner. 1000 hrs just rolled up.

Me to I like the cruise control especially when bushhogging, do most of it with the 3645 and a 2615 fifteen footer.

Amazing what a little tractor can do. Harvesting dirt from back of property to build up pasture riding track. Needless to say, it was a LOT of bucket scoops. Did some bushogging and making new trails in woods today.

So the 3pt hitch lift lever check chain threads stripped again at the turnbuckle. Anyone try the slider/pin setup? Saw comments on a tractor forum that the L8430 kit would also work on a Kubota B7800.

I have it on both tractors they came factory with that set up. I like it and have had no problems.

I have a set of these laying in my shop. I just havent installed them yet. I have to do some pretty major stuff to install them. The original turn buckel setup is a PITA!

Dad has it on his Kubota and it’s sooo much easier. Might have to look at putting it on the old massy I’ve got. Hadn’t really thought about it before. I like it

View attachment 154145 View attachment 154145 View attachment 154146 Thinking about getting a tiller for the Kubota 30 hp. Maybe 48 inch given hard soil. Any experience with tillers? Did this smoothing with 4 disc attachment and landscape rake, but took a full day. Wetted soil with P500 and water tank/pump set up.
I've used a 60" tiller putting in food plots and it worked flawlessly! Makes a plow&disk obsolete! If you can do it dry it looks like powder when you get done! You will be very happy with that
