 Rolled my B2630 on its side. Now what?

It was on its side for less than 15 minutes, supported by the roll bar, rear left tire, and the 60 inch bucket. No visible damage or problems. After a short while, it started on the third try and blue a good bit extra blue smoke, which I suspect was extra fuel spill into the muffler. After a few minutes all was normal. It started fine afterwards and seems normal, and all fluid level seem fine. Before I begin using it again, I wondered what precautions to take, or what subtle things I should look for.

I have just 35 hours on it, so I thought about taking it in early for the 50 hr service rather than doing it myself as planned; perhaps the pros will notice a problem I'd miss.

Curt

Curt, the important issue is that you or anyone else was not hurt in the role over. 15 minutes on its side is not long and you were very fortunate that no serious damage was done. For future consideration for you or anyone else who experiences a roll over; it is EXTREMELY important to understand that if the tractor has been on its side for more that a short duration that oil from the crankcase can get past the piston rings and pool up in the combustion chamber. If a start attempt is made and enough oil (and it does not take much) has accumulated in the combustion chamber; it is possible to bend a connecting rod or worse cause very serious damage to the engine. The blue smoke you noted on the start up is evidence that some oil had begun to accumulate in the combustion chamber. If a tractor has been on its side for many hours or days, it is highly recommended to let the tractor set upright for a few days or at least verify that the engine will HAND crank over without hydro locking. The oil will not compress and if enough oil is present in the combustion chamber upon a start attempt, something WILL give. Glad to hear everything turned out well and all you may have lost or damaged was potentially a good pair of under shorts. ;O) Now at least you have fully calibrated your seat of the pants tilt meter and tested the "emergency nutrient residue excretion roll over reflex"

It would not hurt to take the tractor in so the can look at the rops to make sure that it is not bent in any way. If it is bent that bend will become you weak link and if it should happen to roll again the structure may fail. Better safe then sorry.

Been there, done that, see my pics. The only thing I can add to what's been said is check your battery to see if any acid leaked out. Wash the area thoroughly with baking soda and water if it has to stop any corrosion, and keep an eye on the area until you're positive there is none.

I used the seat harness and the roll bar worked perfectly. Thanks for all the advice.

Even though it was on its side for such a short time, I have major regrets about attempting to start it those first two attempts.

What symptoms should I look/listen for now? Are there any tests I can do to check for a bent rod?

Are stupid mistakes covered under warranty or Kubota insurance?

Insurance would cover any thing after the deductible

Living on flat ground we don't have many rollovers but they do and people get killed. Glad you were safe. I read a warning on a tractor recently that made good sense. In case of roll over do not attempt to leave seat. Of course it had roll bar and seat belt. Each only as good as the user. I think the tractor seat belt on mine may be a used feature now.

Good call on the battery Ken thats the most neglected and can cause major damage from leaking acid! Most times I like them to sit for at least 30 minutes on the wheels before restarting after checking all fluid levels.. Lets hope that you now know how to navigate that slope better. Kubota does have a manual of the ten commandments of tractor safety available which I give to all first time operators.

 Rolled my B2630 on its side. Now what?

Today I was rock raking an area of my property where there were a couple of interfering trees that caused me to tilt enough to cause me concern. I have 400 hours on the tractor now and have had a couple of close calls - always when raising the bucket with weight on uneven property. This was not that situation - I was just rock raking and kept the bucket very low.

To be safe I opted to just get the loose dirt roughly distributed and then hand raked the whole mess - rather than take any chances. I do get frustrated though, sometimes I think I am overly cautious with the tractor (and thereby cause myself lots of extra work). I guess you never really know what the limit is until you have a rollover.
