Default New G4200 owner

Just purchased a Kubota G4200 diesel hydrostat off ebay. Has a 44 mower deck with it. A little rough around the edges but its all there except for the headlights and the chrome emblem between them. Hopefully I can still get those thru Kubota. Does anybody know if the 3pt hitch is still avaible thru the dealer or anywhere else for that matter. I have seen very few of these tractors that actualy have the 3pt hitch on them. If not I may try to adapt a sleeve hitch from a 140 jd to the rear, depending on figuring out a way to lift it. I should have the tractor home a week from this saturday as I am on call for the nursing home where I work in maintance. Cheers Mike

Here are the pics from ebay of it. I will be making many changes to it once she is home. First up are the ags that are pictured on the cub cadet in one of the pics. A fresh paint job all the way around, working tail lights and I need to get new headlights for it, fender flashers. Enjoy the pics Mike

You can't go wrong with a used Kubota. I bought a used TG1860 recently with about 300 hrs on the clock and she's a beaut. Kubota has always overbuilt their machines. With a little TLC and some fresh paint, she'll be good as new. And with those ags, she'll be unstoppable.

Thats my plan, I picked up two rattle cans of kubota orange and 1 can of the blue for the frame at the local dealer today. As well a new belt for my 682's mower deck so I can mow this week. The Original is sold and I need to mow atleast 2 times before the Kubota will be home. I cant wait to get it home. Now the fun of either finding the factory 3pt or adapting a sleeve hitch set up. Cheers Mike

Yepper, they have done good in the field before on other tractors. I need to deal with both injectors leaking right now, one is leaking around the threads into the head, the front one is leaking halfway up around the threads on the injector, just above the lowest second for a wrench to fit on. Mike

I know the basics on diesel repair, I have done my own work on my 6.5L suburban. More than likely when they did the injector service just before I bought the tractor, they didnt get the seat clean, or there is carbon under the copper washer that seals the injector to the head. With the grass growing like a weed, just havent had the down time to pull the injector lines and injectors to check things out. Cheers Mike

Well why you sell 2 good cub cadet for that Kubota? it was engine that save gas for cheap or need big one?

Do you like hear diesel work hard when pull heavy or mow tall grass?


And you forgot to say where you get those rear tires it look to be yanmar's tire that have huge lug on tires.

Love to hear the diesel work, I still have the 682 under my lean to. I only sold the Original, to slow for mowing, 2nd gear was to slow and 3rd was to fast, needed a hydro. I may do a custom diesel install in the 682 later this year or next spring if its still here. The KT17 needs overhauled and I am not really wanting to mess with it. The ags I have are from the front of a Kubota 4x4 compact tractor, 6-12 in size. I believe they are ment for rice patty work, but they are awsome in the furrow plowing, or in the snow! And once you have a diesel, and see how far they go on fuel, you will never want another large hp gas tractor again! I got my new ignition switch today, that solved all my electric issues. I am working on getting the headlights replaced. I got more paint work done as well, but started to storm so no pics tonight. I am looking for either a blower or a blade for this winter. Cheers Mike

Wow I don't know if Kubota's dealer will sell that tires to us.


Well I have actual plan put 10 or 18 hp diesel motor on my gilson so I can mow grass without bog in tall grass but it cost nearby to 1,000 thousand dollars.

If my grandma's case 444 motor start tired or blow up if they will sell to us so we will maybe put 20 hp diesel.

I am looking at a 12hp air cooled diesel, costs about 550 brand new. Its a chinese copy of a yanmar LA series diesel. I put thier 4.5hp version in a JD 112 round fender, worked great with lots of power. The 12hp version has the power/torque of a 14hp gas motor, plenty for what I need the 682 to do. Those motors are sold by Carroll Stream Motors via the internet. Cheers Mike
