    Sold my JD4310 over last weekend and had to move quick on something with the questionable forecast after christmas.

    I bled green until I sat in this machine.

    thanks guys really looking forward to using it . still getting used to the shuttle shift. what speed do you guys plow in? to keep the bucket moving at a normal speed do you push the clutch in and run the throttle up?




    JD 4720 cab tractor was 48k out the door.


    paid 35k for the kubota.

    I dont used the tractor for anything else really except a couple landscape projects and cutting a field once a month. couldnt justify the extra 13k for the deere. the kubota is a 2011 but its still under warranty for another 16 months.

    no tax bought it out of state. that was 2700 right there

    no financing availible, so the price was aggressive

    I know you have a bunch of them, what speed are you plowing in? Also how do yu keep the loader moving fast, foot the clutch and gas pedal at the same time?

    Gonna put a snow basket on the front and a blower on the rear

    Well, if you are using a bucket then I would not recommend going into anything but 1st gear, given that you have no trip mechanism on a bucket. If you were to hit something (which you will), the loader arms will be bent.

    For something like a rubber pusher, or other attachment with a trip mechanism, I plow in anything from 1-3 and will reverse in 4 if I'm in a large open lot. The gear really depends on how much I'm pushing, and how much space I have.

    Yes, when you come up to the pile you need to work the gas/clutch/loader valve all together to stack a pile properly. But don't burn the clutch while doing this.

    the bucket is just going to be for relocating snow, not plowing. I have alot of large driveways with 8 and 10 car garages in court yards, the plows will push everything around and the tractor will scoop and dump.. I have an 8ft plow for the tractor also its a fisher with a skid steer blade on it so it trips.


    you change gears to go forward and reverse ? I thought it was just put in one gear and thats were you are and goforward reverse.

    did you fill the tires?
