Grandson I assume? Boy do I enjoy giving my a ride.

Is that a mirror on right side of your dash? does it work well there? Do you have a canopy on your tractor if so did you think about mounting a mirror there? I need to install as I do road mine some.

Mirror works good enough, may have been better on left side, was a old car mirror I had hanging around, don't have a canopy, would have helped if it was a little higher. One of the few times my grandson visited. He is on the west coast and I am on the east coast.

My local Kubota dealer sells a magnetic base mirror that comes in different arm length models and ball socket for adjustment. I'll have to get the manufacturers name. Always have wanted a mirror for mine!

Mu neighbour roads his various tractors a lot between his place and rented lands.

In order to make it easy to see traffic coming up from behind he made up a portable mirror by using the magnetic base of an old cellular phone antenna and a mirror from a motorcycle screwed into the hole where the antenna whip used to be.

The magnetic antenna base has really good grip.


Best of luck.

I hated drilling holes in my new tractor, just me I guess plus it always seems to be the wrong choice somewhere down the line. Magnetic sounds like the best idea. Well the sun is shining and I'm off for a bike ride. Have a good one. Don

It would upset me for one of my children to live two hours from me but for a grandchild to live 30 minutes away..that would break my heart.
