Whichever type of attachment is going to be used, there are a number of specifications that need to be looked at. But virtually all front Mount snowblowers are two stage snowblowers, and have a cutting width between 60 inches aand 108 inches.

There is normally a range of cutting height of approximately 30 inches and 36 inches.

The auger is likely to be either open flight or dual, and is likely to have a diameter of about 15 to 18 inches.

Kubota Snowblower Parts

Obtaining spare parts for a Kubota tractor that had been used as a snowblower is not normally too difficult, if a couple of suggestions are followed.

firstly is to make sure that the specific part is correct. This may sound a bit obvious, but parts and part numbers for different models can be quite similar, and may not work correctly if the wrong one is bought.

Secondly is to try and obtain a parts diagram, that shows how the part is to be fitted. This may sometimes be available from the dealership where the part is bought, or from a manual for the tractor itself available online.

These are some of the main sections wher spare parts are often needed

Kubota Skid Steer Loaders Guide

A Kubota skid steer is an incredibly powerful, yet easily manoeuvrable, piece of agricultural machinery, that can be used with a wide range of attachments to perform numerous industrial and agricultural work, on commercial lands, job sites or farms.

The skid steer is a four-wheel-drive vehicle, with lift arms immediately beside the driver’s cab, with the pivotal points being situated behind the driver’s shoulder.

Kubota have engineered a vehicle with a number of factors in mind.

The Kubota Skid Steer has an outstanding level of performance when compared with other manufacturers and models, a design of both engine and cab which makes maintenance will be simple to perform, and all routine checks  easy to perform.

It has also put much thought into the comfort and durability of the cab itself, as this is not only a major safety feature, but is also a practical reality of the operative performing the work.

Kubota Skid Steer for Sale +Kubota Skid Steer Specs

Kubota currently has two models for sale, the Kubota SSV65 and the Kubota SSV75. Both have different specs and prices as detailed below, and there are a number of older models also available, many can be bought from Kubota dealerships, others from different dealerships and online.

The Kubota SSV65 and the Kubota SSV75 both have Kubota engines that are powerful and reliable. There is a common rail system and diesel particulate filter ( DPF) muffler, and automatic regeneration system built in to keep the muffler clean and safe.

There are two multi-function levers, a left control lever and a right to control lever that lets the operative access all controls and attachment operations from the safety of the cab. This includes the main hydraulic line and the three electrical lines.

There is an optional high flow hydraulic system which is designed to be able to be used with certain attachments which may require additional hydraulic power.

There is also a dial type hand throttle available, which can be used for certain tasks that need a constant engine speed, such as cold planning, trenching and snow blowing.

There is a hydraulic driven cooling system, which allows the fan to vary its speed and maintain appropriate water and oil temperatures. This also allows the engine to more quickly when the weather is cold.

Kubota Skid Steers have a type of vertical lift design which has a self levelling function. What this means in practice is that when the attachment is raised, but self levelling function keeps the position of the bucket stable. This means there is no need to manually adjust the attachment during the process.

Both the Kubota SSV65 and the TheKubota SSV75 have features which make for an enhanced travel performance. There is a standard to speed travel option, effected by shifting from low to high gear at speeds of approximately 7 – 11 mph.

There is also an option to have Kubota shoclkess ride fitted ( KSR), both have heavy duty tires and high ground clearance.

The interior of the cab has a number of features, which make it both comfortable and safe  for the operative using the skid steer. There is clear visibility all around, including the whole of the bucket.

This means the operation can be viewed and assessed in a completely safe manner. There is a front post switch panel on both the left and right side, a 12 V power socket that can be used for recharging smartphones and other electronic prices, a suspension seat and an obligatory cupholder.

There is a rear view mirror adding to the enhanced visibility of the, an air conditioning system that allows both hot and cold to be blown through the cab, depending upon the weather conditions, and certain functions make sure the interior windows do not freeze during the winter months.

The cab itself is built with safety in mind.

There is a sliding front door for easy access at all times, an ROPS / FOPS cabin and the cab itself is pressurised to make sure that insects, dust and any other debris from the workplace environment cannot enter the cab, causing distress and possible injury to the operative.

Both the Kubota SSV65 and theKubota SSV7 require daily routine checks, as well as more routine maintenance and servicing. All the components that need to be accessed to perform these checks and maintenance can be easily accessed at all times.

These include :  engine oil filler tube, engine oil dipstick, battery, engine oil filter, diesel fuel filter cube, air cleaner indicator, a norex, coolant reserve tank, water separator, fuel filter and door lock.

The radiator and oil cooler are  mounted on top of the engine, again designed for easy access.

Kubota Skid Steer Reviews

There are numerous online reviews for current and previous Kubota skid steers, ranging from Amazon to eBay, to other tractor and agricultural machinery sites.

The problem with all online reviews about any product is being able to verify that they are genuine customer reviews, both good and bad.

Manufacturers and their competitors have been known to post both good and negative reviews on certain sites in order to either boost in sales or damage to sales of the competition.

No one is suggesting that Kubota has done this, but the general climate does put a cloud over the  whole nature of reviews.

There are two solutions to this. Firstly to go to YouTube and watch reviews of Kubota skid steers, which  on the whole are unashamedly produced by Kubota dealerships.

Whilst they are unlikely to flag up any problems or defects, they do give a healthy view of what the Kubota Skid Steer is like if everything is going well.

The second placed to go is Internet forums, such as Tractorbynet, where there is a huge amount of valuable and normally unbiased opinions and experience about Kubota Skid Steers and other Kubota tractors and agricultural machinery.

Kubota Skid Steer Problems

If buying a new Kubota skid steer, then it is worth making sure all your details are registered with the Kubota dealership, in case there are any problems or any product recall that you need to be notified of.

Otherwise Internet discussion forums such as tractorbynet and Agtalk can give a good insight into any mechanical problems that may occur, or any practical issues that people may have.

This is normally regarding things such as easy access or not to interior of the cab, other safety issues, whether to use tires or tracks, any problems relating to maintenance or accessibility of parts, and normally discussion on the ease or accessibility of controls that the operative has to use to use the skid steer

What is a Kubota mini excavator ?

A Kubota mini excavator refers to a wide range of different types of construction equipment made by Kubota all with different ranges of horsepower, and with differing relevance in terms of the type and size of work needed to be undertaken.

Kubota have achieved a reputation, necessitated by their roots as a Japanese company, of building small tractors and agricultural machines that are capable of doing high-powered work traditionally done by much larger tractors and agricultural construction or excavation equipment.

A Kubota mini excavator can in effect either be a Kubota tractor, or a Kubota construction machine, depending on the type of work needed to be done.

When deciding on what type of Kubota mini excavator is needed, it is important to first of all assess the type of work that is needed to be done, and then the land or terrain on which the work is to be done.

This then allows a proper assessment of what type of Kubota mini excavator is best suited to this work. This Kubota mini excavator can be a piece of Kubota construction equipment, or a Kubota tractor that has a backhoe fitted and is capable of doing excavation work.

Kubota Mini Excavator – Dealership

One of the issues of buying a Kubota mini excavator is whether to buy it from a Kubota dealer or to buy a used or second-hand Kubota mini excavator either online or off-line. If buying a new Kubota mini excavator then you will almost certainly have to buy it from a Kubota dealer and there are advantages and disadvantages in this.

You will have a certain amount of negotiation in terms of price, in part depending on whether the Kubota dealer is also a dealer for other manufacturers or not. You will also have some room for negotiation with a Kubota dealer on issues regarding warranty, servicing and maintenance with regard to a Kubota mini excavator.

It is important when considering buying a Kubota mini excavator to think through the practicalities regarding servicing and maintenance. Depending on what type of Kubota mini excavated by it is unlikely to be intended to be used on public highways, certainly for any distance.

To that end it is important that the practicalities of transporting a Kubota mini excavator to a dealer either for servicing or maintenance of thought through prior to purchase. It is issues like this that give a potential buyer some degree of leverage with a Kubota dealer when buying a Kubota mini excavator.

If buying a Kubota mini excavator online, either through eBay or some other type of auction site then the advantages that you may get it cheaper than from Kubota dealer.

The disadvantages are obvious in one sense, in terms of a lack of warranty, and also often lack of knowledge about the type of land it has been used upon and the type of work that the Kubota mini excavator has been involved in.

Both these are areas of knowledge that a potential purchaser needs to have to make an effective judgement about whether the Kubota mini excavator is in good condition or not. If buying a Kubota mini excavator online it is a good idea to either have a really good working knowledge of how to repair and service them yourself, or have access to someone close by who has such
