 Kubota GR2010 2010 Dies in reverse????

Picked up a new 2010 GR2010 (gas) today. Runs great. But it dies (engine stops) when you press the reverse pedal when the mower deck is live (running). Is this some new-fangled safety device? Or is it a defect?

If it is some new safety feature, how do I de-activate it/bypass it? Is it a switch I can bypass?

My purpose in asking is when using a snowblower in winter, one backs up a lot, I can't be shutting off the blower every time I need to back up.

Thanks

It is indeed, it's supposed to stop people from backing over kids, dogs, or whatever. It's called the "KRA (Kubota Reverse Awareness) System".

There is a safety switch that needs to be pushed each and every time you shift from forward to reverse with the PTO engaged.


Best of luck.

Thanks Murf. I think I'll be looking at the wiring on this "feature." I just back up too much around trees and such to put up with it.

Unfortunately, I didn't get the manual with it yet so I haven't been able to look it up what was going on. Convoluted tale...

I know someone else who tried to 'rework' that particular safety feature, it didn't end well.



Best of luck.

Thankfully a tractor issue Kenny.

It seems this system isn't as straight forward as a seat switch is, lots of issues trying to get around this one.


Best of luck.

Oh. Could be more complicated than I like. I was hoping to just unplug the switch and then jumper across it so it's activated 100% of the time. I'll have to ponder on this. Don't want to cause any damage. I'll also have to see how much of a problem it is to use the actual switch.

Didn't seem to logical that if you wanted people to watch when they back up that you would add a switch that requires you to look forward to press. Maybe logic is over-rated...

I don't think logic is over-rated, I think the problem is when the lawyers get between the engineers and the machine, things get over-complicated.

For years they've used back up alarms on all sorts of stuff, don't see how that wouldn't work here.

I'll ask the guys how they managed to solve the problem in the end and get back to you.

Best of luck.

Iowafun you don't need to touch any wiring there is a reverse override switch complete with flashing light. See brochure at:-
http://www.kubotatractor.org/kubota-gr2010-features.pdf

I have a JD x300 which also has this feature. It can be overridden by holding the mower engage switch in the upper position.

 Kubota GR2010 2010 Dies in reverse????

Thanks Murf & Bristan. I still am interested in bypassing/overriding the switch. I generally like to hit reverse right away and go into reverse. Not stop, find the switch, hit it, then go in reverse every time. Wouldn't be a problem if everything on the property was square with no trees, but I have goofy routes that cause me to reverse often.

Not to mention when clearing snow this winter!! I reverse a decent amount when clearing the driveway and where the snowplows park all the snow...at the front of my driveway.

I'll have to play with it this weekend to see how much of a PIA the switch will be.
