I was just wonderin' if anybody else here owned one. I have one with front loader and a back hoe. It's a bretty nice machine.

I've been wondering if anybody here as any of the other Kubota implements and how they like them. I was considering getting the "quick attach" system for the front so I can use skid-steer implements.

Anyways...here's my baby.

I've been looking at the L3430 or the L3830.They claim you can't run a belly deck with the industrial tires.Is your backhoe a 3point setup and how do you like it.I've been thinling of getting a cab also.

No it is not the 3-Point setup. And I like it a lot. This is the biggest one you can put on this tractor....runs off the pump... 9 footer. :drinkup:

Yeah....get the cab...I am kicking myself for not getting it. I'll get it this year I think though.

Why the L3830.How does the hydro hold up and perform.I'll be getting a factory cab with heat and ac.

The Hydro has been flawless on mine, I really like it. Especially in LOW.

I too will get the factory cab...loaded....IF I can...might be hard since my back hoe is not the standard 3-Point setup that they usually sell. I also have a heavier front bucket coming from Kubota. It has a replacable blade and is heavier.

Thw L3130 can be had with the Grand cab from Kubota according to my dealer. When we were signing the papers we could have ordered it. He said the L3130 is the exact same tractor as the L3430 abd L3830. The only difference being the motors.

That's what the boss at Dragoon's Farm Equipment in Champlain, NY says anyways.

Nice looking tractor. Ive got a 3130GST with the 723 loader and the BL4690B backhoe. I just got the backhoe last week so I havent had a chance to use it. It looks small on the tractor compared to your BH90. I chose it over the BH90 bacause I will be switching 3PH implements alot and I liked the idea of a seperate pump. Ive had it on and off a couple of times, just playing, and Im pleased with how easy it is to mount and remove but I may be kicking myself later if I get into any heavy duty digging.

Nice looking setup!!!!
I have the 3130 HST w/FEL. I hadn't seen a BH set up on one until your picture above. Man does that look awesome. When the time finally comes for me to get one, it would have to be the 3PH setup since I box blade and bush hog alot.
So, can you remove yours or is it on to stay?

I have a 3130 and I love it to death, I have the loader B Hog Box blade and 8 ft snow blower. My dealer also told me that Kubota doesn't offer factory cab on 3130 just 3430. They are same tractor but factory only manufactures 3430 with the cab to cut down on models in inventory. The JoDell Perry make a beutifull cab and is very close to factory. I think it is nicer than the curtis model IMO.

We've got the 3130 and it's nice. We got the front loader with quick attach because we use some forks on occasion. We also got the 5' box scrape and the 5' aerator. We also picked up a 2 blade mollborg plow used. We have very clay soil here and the 3130 would bog down with a 6" deep cut at anything more than 2.5mph. That's my only beef with it. I love your backhoe.


Note: First post for me:rolleyes: nub.

I love the back hoe too! That's my favorite part...lol. Easily outdigs similar JD's and New Hollands (in the 32HP range). My buddy has a NH TC33 and he can't go as deep nor can he move rocks as big as I can. LOL

And....most of all....WELCOME TO THIS GREAT FORUM!
