 50 hour maintenance

Did the 50 hour lube/filter change on my L3130 over the weekend. It took about 2 hours outside including the grease points (~30 deg F). Everything went pretty smoothly but I did have to scramble for empty drain buckets. Eleven gallons of hyd fluid is alot when you're laying under your tractor in the snow and you have a 3/4" diameter flow of warm oil coming out. I did keep the fresh hydraulic fluid, engine oil, and front axle lube inside overnight and that helped.

Because the overflow check is near the filler the front axle seemed to fill with less than four quarts of lube (needs almost 7). At first I thought that I didn't drain it all but it was just too thick to make it's way from the left to the right side of the axle. After using it for a few minutes I was able to add another three quarts.

I'm curious, did you replace everything with Kubota products? What was the cost for everything? Before too long I am going to have to do the 50 hour maintenance on my 7800 and wanted to get a ball park figure.

 50 hour maintenance

Kubota, I did buy kubota UDT and filters. There was not much out there for aftermarket filters that I could find. Altogether I spent about $160 with oil and gear lube. I could have saved $40-50 with store brand hydraulic fluid but...

One thing I would get is a cheap 12-15 gal rubbermaid pan to drain into. I would have caused less mess. Your wife can use it to store fancy doilies in when you're not using it to drain oil. Smile

The cost isn't as bad as I figured it to be, but I'm like you and I'm sticking with the Kubota products. Thanks for the tip on the rubbermaid pan. My wife has so many rubbermaid tubs it is unreal. She has about 25 of the 18 gallon ones for Christmas stuff along with a couple 50 gallon ones for bigger items. Several more but different colors for easter stuff, halloween things, and so on. She even stores all the baby clothes in those tubs when the baby grows out of them (you know in case she has another one)!!!! All in all we must have a 100 of those tubs!! I should have bought stock in rubbermaid before she went out and bought them!!! She even uses them for laundry baskets.
