 IT TOOK A KUBOTA B7800 FOR A CATERPILLAR TO WORK

Humor for the day. I had a friend come over today with his cat track loader to excavate for a basement home. I told him I had a new Kubota B7800 and could do it quicker but I knew he needed the work. Being 20 degrees today his tracks were frozen and his cat wouldn't move. I offered to bring my Kubota out and lift him off the trailer but he just shook his head. He tried everything and couldn't get it to move. He finally said go get the tractor. I did, lifted up on the upper tracks with my front loader to loosen them. It took several lifts to finally break them loose which was enough to get him rolling. I just grinned at him and told him it took a Kubota to get the job done. His names is Roy Vice from Versailles, Ky. If any of you ever see him, ask him about it. HA!

 IT TOOK A KUBOTA B7800 FOR A CATERPILLAR TO WORK

I pulled a Greem Machine out of a snow bank with my 7800 last winter. That's a good day.

 IT TOOK A KUBOTA B7800 FOR A CATERPILLAR TO WORK

We had a problem with our tractor trailer years ago, while away on a trip one battery died, plates shorted out, that took the other battery out too. The driver disconnected the really dead one and got a boost to get the truck started to head home. The truck would run fine off one battery, but it needed both to turn the engine over fast enough to start.

Not thinking the driver shut the truck off when he stopped for lunch at a service plaza on the highway. When he went to re-start it he realized what he had done. A retiree who had his motorhome parked nearby came over to see if he could be of any help. The driver asked if he knew how to drive a truck and the old fella said he had driven trucks for years. The driver told him he was going to bump-start the rig and needed him to sit in the cab, he was going to push. The old fella asked "with what?". The driver didn't say a word, he just started unchaining the last item on the fully loaded 53' float, a Kubota L3450!!

It took about 5' of roll to start the truck, the old man was absolutely amazed....

Best of luck.
