I own a B7800 HST, Want to Upgrade to a L3130. Am thinking about going with FST (Straight Drive Trans), Any thought on the subject of those of you who have one.
I will be using mostly for light work, and bush hogging.

When you go up to the L-series the larger equivelent to your 7800 would be a L-2800-3400 and they both offer hydro's or gear but my prefered has to be the hydro for ease of pto operation.

I've found my gear drive L3130 to be a great all around workhorse. I think the FST is the same as the DT? My philosophy is to keep it simple. The shuttle shift is really easy to use. The only time I've even thought of a hydro is when I've been using the loader for moving dirt. Then the hydro would allow a very low gear when digging into the pile and a relatively high gear for backing and moving forward. But I don't do enough dirt digging to justify a hydro.

If your property is fairly flat the gear drive will do well bushhogging. If you have steep hills the hydro will make mowing easier but it's really nothing you can't do on a gear. You might have to downshift here and then but the synchro transmission shifts pretty easily on the fly.
I'm really well satisfied.
Dave

I think the DT is 4WD, anyway does the 3130 have high and low range?

The DT is high and low with four gears in each. The FST is two wheel drive and GST is a power shift giving you 12 speeds forward with out use of the clutch and a hydraulic forward reverser also eliminating the use of the clutch.

Aha, I've always wondered what the FST was. I didn't think about 2WD. I would consider a 4WD though. Now that I've had one I don't think I'd ever go back.

I was under the impression that FST stood for "Fully Synchronized Transmission" (i.e. a gear-type model) and DT stood for "Dual Traction" (i.e. 4WD). On their website it looks as though Kubota designates 2WD gear-type models as "F" and 4WD gear-type models as "DT". I think most if not all HST or GST models are 4WD.

Started to change Trans Oil in the 7800 today, Asked dealer to give me oil and filter what ever I needed, After finding 4 drain plugs and draining the oil, I noticed 2 filters, He only gave me one, So I have to wait till tomorow to get another filter, What I don't understand is why are there 2 filters and one is 1" longer than the other one, Anyone got a clue.
