Newbie checking in and saying hello. Been looking for a long time for a little Kubota that had been well maintained, and I think I finally found one. Regardless, it's in my garage now!!! Yaaaaayyy!!!

Just brought this home today and am going to start going thru it. Bought it from the original ower, a GM machinist, guy seemed to keep up on the maint and what not very well, have all the manuals for it, 600 hours on this little beast.

Need to find a good source for parts such as mower blades (has a 40 inch 3 blade deck for it), etc. Really runs nice and the original owner seemed like a really cool cat.

Congrats, great looking Tractor! :thThumbsU
That is AWESOME! I love those, and yours looks to be in great shape.

Congratulations, and thanks for the photos too!
Thanks!!! Anybody have a lead on best place for replacement parts, such as blades, belts, etc.?

Thanks again.

Your local dealer should have all that. Probably a good idea to get to know them.

Another source that mail-orders Kubota parts is Messicks. I believe they are an MTF site supporter, too.
Greetings & welcome from southern Md. Wow that looks amazing , congrats on your new acquisition.

That's a good idea, but my nearest dealer is a bit of a drive.

Oh, what would you suggest for a "block heater" on this engine? I am looking at a Kat's heating pad that you stick on the oil pan. Don't need much heat, since the tractor will always sit inside, but I was looking at a 50 watt or so pad to stick to the oil pan.....just enough to get the temp up a bit on it.

Thoughts?

Very nice! I love my little 3 cylinder diesel. Just keeps going. Be sure to get red dye diesel fuel for it, like farmers and off roaders do. Here it is 45 cents a gallon cheaper than the road taxed version. Of course California has high fuel taxes. You may not save as much there.
Thanks for the info. :) Anytime I can save a little on taxes, I'm more than good with it. :)

I think your better off heating the water than the oil...
That is one nice lookin bota, Ive got a 4200, kinda rough around the edges, But some day hope to make it real pretty like yours, Did you know thats a case/ingersoll snow caster. Yes sir. So you can get parts at your Ingersoll dealer for that end. There are a couple good Ingersoll dealers here between detroit and lansing. The one in williamston is also a kubota dealer. Enjoy your new tractor, The kubota diesels are the finest diesel engines in the world... Eric
Nice diesel. Is the tow unit also a diesel?
The previous owner of the tractor said something similiar about the blower, that it wasn't actually made my Kubota, but he wasn't sure who made it....your info is good info to know, thanks. :)

Yes, the Jetta is diesel as well. Has almost 260,000 miles on it now and still runs like a champ. Had the dealer do the timing belt service about 10,000 miles ago on it. Been very happy with the little VW.

Sweet G3200! I have never seen one that nice, you got a sweet machine. :fing32:
Ok, this is bugging me......why is this open like this?? Is there suppose to be some type of access door here? I need to fix this.



Thanks.

vmax84
Yup, Your missing a little flip up door there. If memmory serves me correctly Its perforated. Check with joes power equip, I think he advertises here, hes near sagnaw... Eric...
I suppose it doesn't have an awful lot on how the machine runs (haha), but I just want it to look pretty. :)

Thanks for the contact info!!

All you need to really do is keep the ambient temp from getting down into the single digits. If the tractor is stored inside and you have electricity, sometimes just a little electric space heater on low setting will do the trick. Like those oil-filled electric radiators, for instance.

But if the space you are storing it in is completely uninsulated and drafty, then a block heater on a timer probably makes more sense.

I do need to beef up the seat, since it is cracked. Anybody ever take the seat cushion off and put a couple layers of fiberglass on the inside of the seat, or is there a better way? Thanks.
