Pulled the trigger
« on: August 07, 2015, 06:57:04 PM »
Got a 2012 L3800DT Kubota. Has two sets of rear remotes and a WR Long bucket grapple.

Stopped by TSC and picked up a box blade and auger.

Can't wait to out it to work

Tires fluid filled?
Test them RN
If it's that sodium chloride, I'd drain that crap out and put the beet juice in there
Hydrostat, shuttle shift, or manual trans?
Horsepower?

Box blade: Get a strong one. I'm thinking that is a 40HP or there-abouts tractor?? So maybe a 48", possibly a tad bigger box blade, but don't go cheap

Buy an assortment of those pins, they fall off all the time...

For digging, there are companies which make a front digging attachment with teeth. It bolts on and will greatly increase the ability to punch through stubborn soil

Have fun, they are invaluable!

Nice! Big D is on to something with the bucket teeth add on.
Will be very handy in the tougher soils.
I just don't want to wind up missing a digit or limb.  I can sometimes get in a hurry to get results.

I just discovered them myself. They make a huge difference according to the guy I was talking to who added them on.

I grew up on a farm, playing with all sorts of boy toys. All I know is once the teeth were gone things changed dramatically with the digging operations.
Definitely a cool find.

Nate, just rolled in yesterday about 2:30. Did the deal on the phone and went to pick it up this morning. Also went to the steel supply place to get some building materials. Going to add another door to the shop and add a lean to on the back to park equipment until I build the 40x60

Don thanks for the tip. It's a 38hp tractor. Manual trans. Two sets of rear remotes. Plan on getting a log splitter to run with them. I will look into the bucket teeth. Need to weld on some hooks to the bucket too.  Probably add a LED light bar

Based on everything I looked at this seemed the best set up. I refuse to buy the new tractors with emissions. I missed a 44hp hydro that got sold when I was in CO. I found a nice Deere but it had 2200 hours on it. Ultimately buying from a reputable dealer weighed heavy on the decision. They are about 25 miles away.

Ken, I'm learning. Ran the box blade some today to take the crown out of the road and getting it prepped for some crushed granite.

Did learn to get it on and off the trailer without using the ramps. 4wd and a little bucket help and walk it up.

I wondered where Don was, he was awful quiet until today.

I bet Charles had a permanent grin when he fell asleep after playing with those controls. It seems to bring the "boy" out of a man!

Nice buy. I used a neighbors Kubota for about a week and it never missed a beat. Was smaller with just a 3 ft box but it worked great.

Strapped on a tiller and did the front yard too.

I was wondering about Don, he has been quiet. Did you get red back?

I'll be getting a PTO tiller soon.  Gonna work on a fall garden. See if I can remember all the lessons my grandparents taught me about gardening/farming.

Tillers work well with that compost pile I think you're doing or will be doing. Throw meat away but compost everything else. I plan on composting the little house produce as well. Apparently with the adding of wood ash after each "Addition" you end up with some pretty good growin fertilizer in a couple years of collecting.

Anyway a tiller run through that pile will keep the bacterias square dancing their way to bacteria heaven

Great purchase.  I love my tractor but it is easy to start thinking about needing another attachment.  I have a 28 HP Mahindra that I use a 5ft bush hog behind frequently and a 5ft box blade occasionally.  The front bucket make me wonder how I lived without it on my last tractor.  Handy as a pocket on a shirt.

True!
Thanks Larry!
I'm going to pick up enough of them to fit out the Deere
Larry: It has a 72" 4 in 1 Frontier AY11E bucket
RN: This is a much better product than the bolt on teeth, more substantial, semi-permanent, and like Larry mentioned, you can still back-drag a smooth surface, which you will be doing a lot with that loader

I could have done this without the two, but would still be digging.

I would say the pipe is for a crapper....a good size at that!

Try this one RN, it has 7 bolts, spaced 7" apart. Blades/equipment are typically a generic size on the compact tractors:

RN, the pipe is for the new outhouse. Ken hit the nail on the head.
I hope to never need another, and if I do, I've run the new hole incorrectly.

We have a compost bin that has been producing for us for years.  The flowerbed and vegetables really thrive with regular additions.  If you keep sticks and branches out of the pile or bin, you can expect good compost in as little as 6 weeks.  Grass clippings, leaves, paper (shredded), and any non-meat food waste goes into the bin.

Nice Kubota, BTW.  I have a BX24 (23hp) and it has no problems pulling a 4ft box blade. I'm sure yours could handle a 5 footer easily.  I keep my box blade on when I am running the loader as a counter-weight.  Its heavy and has a low center of gravity.  Its no fun going downhill with a heavy load in the bucket and having the rear tires lose traction in 2WD.

Nice piece of equipment TRN. I have often considered one of those for the home place here. In the end I just default to the old Case 1845 Skid steer. 

One of my winter projects is a Skid Steer mounted tiller. Because attachments are cool LoL
