Kubota lawn tractors – how to operate

Assuming you are familiar with how to operate a Kubota lawn tractor, there are a number of general key safety instructions that you would be wise to follow, which will help ensure that you have a safe operation with yourself, the tractor and any other people in the vicinity of the area you’re using it in.

When driving the tractor it is a good mindset to think of dried it in the same way that you would a car. It is important to disengage all the attachment clutches and make sure that the deer is in neutral before attempting to start the engine.

The nature of a lawn tractor means that it is likely to be used on land that is both flat and hilly, and there’s a tendency at times not to realise the inherent danger of using a lawn tractor where it inevitably will be driven at an angle.

Kubotakubota.net show how thinking in terms of how you drive a car can help prevent this, and simply be aware of driving or not driving on any land where the tractor could either tip over or slip out of control because of the nature of the land.

Many lawn or garden tractors use different types of attachments for various gardening purposes, and a number of these attachments will collect lawn and mulch and other types of garden residue, and inject them from the tractor normally via a chute.

When ejecting any discharge of material from the chute, it is important for the operator of the tractor to have an awareness of where the materials came to be discharged to. This means avoiding any other people in the vicinity, any animals or pets or children, or anywhere such as going to require further work i.e. a pond or similar.

It is important to only use the Kubota tractor in good daylight or good artificial light. Whilst your Kubota tractor may come with headlights and  should be used whenever necessary, having good all-round visibility is equally important as this end you need either daylight or good artificial light.

Without such light there is a real danger of overheating and obstruction that you cannot see properly, or of inadvertently coming too close or hitting an object or person that you cannot see clearly.

Again it is a self-evident piece of advice never to put your hands or any other part of your body near the blade or engine whilst they are running or on.

If you need to put your hands anywhere near any part of the machinery make sure at the engine is turned off, the key is out of the ignition, any blades have stop moving and there is no build up of energy within the blade that might cause and to move whilst your hands are in their vicinity.

Kubotakubota.net highlights there is always a danger of built-up energy with any mechanical device and extreme caution should be taken.

It is sometimes necessary to the operator of the Kubota tractor to make an adjustment to the cutting height of the attachment that is being used with the machine.

This can occur for a number of reasons and is normally a fairly simple activity. What is important is that the operator times the tractor off before making any such adjustment to the cutting height of the tractor.
