    I just basically bought me a Kubota B6000-4/wd. Has a bucket loader on it. I paid $2000. But I don't want to look like a dumbbutt when I go there. Does anyone have the diagram for the gears? What place for what gear? Thanks!

    I am pretty sure that machine is older than me! Do you know what year it is? As far as I know the 6000's were made in the mid 70's up to around the early 80's . I don't know too much about the older kubotas but if it is all there and works . It sounds like a good buy!!! Good luck!!!!

    Ya its all there. The guy estimated that it is in the 70's. It is a 3 cylinder diesel. Runs good. Needs a squirt of either to get it fired because the glow plug is bad. 3 point hitch works. the four wheel drive works but makes a clunking noise. But once u take it out of 4/wd it doesnt do it so. I mean I think I got a deal.

    I am looking can't find anything. My neighbor down the street has the same one as me but his has a plow and his is a b6000e. he has wheel weights. He never uses the things so I am going to ask him if he wants to sell them to me :).
