Breaking all four motor mounts is odd. Hopefully its not a sign of more severe problems.

It's an '83 chain drive with NO suspension or reverse. I've never wrecked it but I've seen at least two people do so.

I hop the front tire over the blade and then lift the blade, wedging the tire against the counterweight. It rides nice and tight.

Did you ever find out why all 4 motor mounts failed on the Kubota ?

I'am curious because Kubota is known for good reliabitly I know a few mini excavators that have been flawless.

Krafty & Bleed Green: Ski is my coffee.

By some fortune/misfortune the Gods have seen fit to allow me to mow the rest of the week. So Today I headed back to the good doctor's place.

MY travel rig.


Another turn around on a different pond. Before/After



The doctor only wanted the brush off of the dam. I don't think a picture can accurately portray the slope on this dam. I don't know if I was lucky or good, but I'm off in one piece. Before/After



Back at it tomorrow.
