Since buying my my used Kubota 7100 HST, I haven't had much opportunity to use it. The previous owner didn't provide and an owner's manual, but she did show me what she knew about driving it including how to engage the belly mower. I remember most of it, but not the belly mower part. Could someone enlighten me regarding whatever controls it needs?

Also, I have a list of manuals I could buy. They're not cheap, and I'm wondering if the owners manual will have enough depth to be worth the money. I'm concerned with keeping it in proper order,sharpening the mower brades, etc. Any thoughts?
Thanks
__Mike

The owners manual gives just about all a person needs to know unless major mechamical work is needed. The manuals are meant for a mechanic with some experience and for many people just an interesting book to look at although not for much use.

Mike, most manufacturers (of nearly anything) today will happily provide you with an owners manual free.

They would rather you get a free manual than get hurt.

Go to your local dealer or email Kubota's customer service dept. with the exact model, serial number wouldn't hurt either.

Best of luck.

Art,

That sounds pretty good then. I do have *some* mechanical background, but I don't intend to rebuilt the engine, I want to be able to keep the thing in good operating order.
Thanks
Mike

Murf,

I like the sound of that! Hope you're right.

Thanks

Mike,

To me Kubota's manuals contain some very good info. The ones that came with my tractors were for the most part very simple to understand.

Mike -
I don't know about any free copies perse, however, they (Kubota dealers) are very willing to sell you whatever you are in need of. I never got any free, however, always received what I was in search of.

kthompson, ah... Ken, right?

The way you describe the Kubota manual sounds about right to me. Just the essentials.

Thanks
_Mike

Willie,

I'm in contact with an outfit who seems to have all the manuals on hand. Of course if I can get a free one, so much the better.

So far no one has mentioned how to engage the mower.

Thanks
_Mike
