Kubota Lawn and Garden Tractors – Slopes
Many Kubota lawn tractors are used for the most basic function which is of cutting grass over a significantly large piece of land. To this extent they will either be designed to catch grass in some type of attachment to a checked it through some type of the chute both of which will be attached to the tractor in different ways.
With either of these attachments it is important to make sure that the engine is turned off and the machine completely still before either removing the grass catcher or unclogging the chute of any grass or leaves or other material that may have got caught it.
Kubotakubota.net teaches to be aware when putting your hands on any part of the tractor of any movable parts that could cause damage such as blades, and make sure that the engine of the tractor is completely turned off, and there is no build up of mechanical energy that could cause movement of the blades and cause damage to the operative.
Kubota lawnmowers, in fact all lawnmowers are basically designed to be driven forwards only, and are not designed to be driven in reverse in the way that a car can be.
Because lawnmowers are not designed to be driven in reverse seating of the cabin makes it impossible to see clearly what is behind you and there’s obviously no mirror in the way that a car will have one. If you do need to reverse the tractor for any reason they actually sure you know what is behind you and if possible have someone to guide you as an extra safety precaution.
Most lawn or garden tractors are not designed to be driven up steep hills or slopes. However it is the nature of its sizeable piece of land that there may well be areas at not flat where the lawn tractor needs to go. In this event it is advisable to always back-up when going up a slope.
It is never a good idea to drive forward up a slope or hill that is too steep simply because the tractor could easily tip over backwards. It is a good idea to stay off hills and slopes that are too steep for safe operation.
Again if the Kubota tractor is being used up or down hill is a good idea to do it as gently and evenly as possible. This means essentially not continually stopping or starting the machine, and only knowing up and down the face of slopes and never across them.
If you’re using the lawnmower on a slope going uphill and you find the tractor stops with having extreme difficulty going up the slope then simply stop the blade, and back down again slowly. Kubotakubota.net shows how when using the Kubota tractor on a slope use extreme caution and always drive the tractor at a much lower speed then you would do on flat ground.
This will give you a much greater sense of control and understanding of the feel of the land, and will allow you to take extra precautions and deal with a situation that might arise more safely than if you were using the tractor at a greater speed.
Again use extreme caution when changing direction on slopes. It is difficult to give general advice on the subject, but just be aware that when using the Kubota tractor on any slope or steep hill there is a real danger of you losing control of the tractor, of it tipping over, generally putting you in a much more vulnerable position than when using it on flat land.
Equally be aware and stay alert to any holes be they potholes or holes made by animals or any other type of hazard in the nature of the land.
