Quick attach is a different story. Pretty much a must-have. Wish I had one, but nothing to fit my loader.


There is a shop in Richmond that will make them for anything - among other places they advertise on CL in the heavy equipment section, they fabricate lots of skid steer attachments.

MM when you see the need for aux hydraulic outlets, I can show you how to add them without breaking the bank. I added 2 more on mine to run a logging winch and hydraulic top link..

I installed the "Pat's Easy Change System" today.  This is a quality setup and I'm gonna order one for the old John Deere.  I will also still use the Quick Hitch with the Bushhog, grader blade, & subsoiler but this "Easy Change"will make installing the Quick Hitch much easier for me.

I think you will like the new tractor.  The FEL and the 4wd are a game changer compared to a 2wd farm tractor.  I could not tell if you have the skid steer hook up for the FEL but if you don't it is a relatively inexpensive modification that will enable you to go from grapple to forks to bucket in a minute or so - much quicker than driving out pins.

It's the older Bushhog style system with spring loaded pins.  At this time a grapple is not in my plans so it will have to stay as is.  $$

I replaced the rotten shift boot so the tractor hydraulic fluid is contaminated.  :-X   I probably would have replaced it anyway so tomorrow all fluids/filters get changed.  Yup, probably to the tune of $350.  :o

Yup, and I don't know why I didn't just get some 303 from NAPA.  Probably all came out of the same tank.  ::)

A new saddle for da hoss will be delivered by UPS today and a new floor mat should be here soon.  Gotta find some rattle grey paint.

On the bright side if it had been hydrostatic it would have been about 12 gallons!  Good to do the fluids and filters so you have a 'clean' start.  Enjoy the new toy it will be a big difference with 4 wheel drive for traction and its increased lift ability.

The new saddle came today so it got installed.  Also an "ammo box" which will be painted Orange and serve as a mini toolbox.  The new floor mat comes Friday.

I peeked in on a couple of Orange Forums today and read their responses regarding Kubota UTD tractor fluid.  There were arguments both ways and with some instances where dealers regularly use non-Kubota UTD.  My opinion is that with non-hydrostat setups it would be OK.  Of course there is a valid argument that since the fluid is only changed every 600 hours, bit the bullet.

I run the TSC 303 in my old iron, buy a pallet of it every couple of years on Black Friday at $17 or so a pail, it has never caused me a problem, but I would not run it in something late model like your Bota there.  The new pumps have a lot tighter tolerances, more bushings, etc. and require the additives in the expensive formulas to last the test of time.  Of course if you are switching implements between tractors and they have hydro lines then you will have a contamination issue there due to the spit swapping.
