 Loader on B7500

My new Kubota B7500 HST was outfitted with the LA272 FEL. Does anyone else think that the bucket is not built from heavy enough steel? I really got into some loader work tonight with the tractor, and it seems like it's just a little bit too easy to bend the edges of the bucket. Of course i was using it to push over a rather large tree, which I did successfully. I was just a little taken back when I saw an imprint of the tree in the top of the bucket. Is there a heavier bucket you can buy for this loader? The tractor just seems too powerful, and heavy, for all the stronger the bucket is. The rest of the loader is great, and it has just enough power.

 Loader on B7500

Duane, I can't speak for the bucket on the B7500, but I have had a JD 970 TLB for over 10 years and use the bucket for digging/pushing/moving dirt, gravel, mulch. etc...

When it comes time to remove a tree I break out my Husqvarna 266, cut it down leaving 4-5' of stump, and remove the stump with the Backhoe...I might be missing something, but I would never even consider pushing over a tree of any size with my machine...it is to valuable for the things it was made to do...I must admit, the bucket has taken it's share of dents due to pushing boulders on occassion, but I think it's best to leave the tree removal to the saw...

BTW, congrats on the B7500, I am sure it will do many things in the dirt in minutes that would take DAYS by hand...MOJ

 Loader on B7500

I think the Kubota has a much lighter bucket per my Editorial on the Home page, but pushing trees over is the work of a Bull Dozer, I have to thin Kubotas philosophy is that it is better to bust the bucket than break th loader arms.
"The one thing I find is that on the Kubota B7500 and the B2400 the loader Bucket has much lighter steel than either the Deere or New Holland Boomer. This should not be a problem for most users. However, those of you who thought you bought a Bull Dozer when you got your B7500, beware, this is a much lighter duty loader than what you will find on a B21 or L35 which are meant for excavation full time, just go easy and you will be fine."

 Loader on B7500

I have the LA351 loader on my B2400 and haven't had any real problem with it. There are a couple of nicks and scrapes on it from pushing rocks and fallen trees around but I haven't used it to actually push trees over. I know it's tempting when you see what it can do but it's not really designed to be a dozer. I think the best answer is to break out the chain saw or to start welding reinforcing plates on the bucket recognising that you may start tearing up the arms and the tractor.

 Loader on B7500

Just took a trade-in home last night to do some landscape work. The unit is a B-2150 with a kubota loader. well I went at a 4" Maple in the center but I didn't see any damage to the loader bucket or sheet metal!! This poor tractor picked the rear tires right off the ground (no rear ballast) and keep right on ticking. By the way I preferred to use the cutting edge on the bucket which is supposed to take the load.

Touche!! You see fellas, I don't have a back hoe, so the only way to get the stump out is with the bucket. Here's what I did. I dug out around the root system with the loader, loosening the whole base of the tree. Leaving the tree connected to the stump gives extra leverage because you can put force way above the stump. It really wasn't that hard on the tractor. No harder than trying to wrestle a big boulder out of the ground. This loader doesn't seem to have as much power as I am used to on a loader... It won't pick the rear wheels of the tractor off the ground, but then again I do have the rear wheels loaded... probably 700 to 800 pounds. I guess that's all part of not being able to destroy the tractor just by using the loader... probably a wise engineering decision.

Duane, I paid extra for a heavy duty bucket when I bought my L3710 and I'm glad I did. I don't know if a heavy bucket is available for yours but you might want to invest in a bolt on tooth bar instead. I understand the tooth bar makes the loader bucket quite a bit stouter. I have an e-mail address around here somewhere for a guy that sells tooth bars for around $250, if you're interested, let me know and I'll dig it up.

Art,
Wasn't the B2150 replaced by the New B2710? I always heard people talk about the B2150 and B2710 as significantly heavier duty tractors than the B7500. Is the loader Bucket any stronger on the B2150 and B2710, I know they don't use the same Loader model, customers desiring a little tougher machine might go that route.

 Loader on B7500

The model B-2150 was replaced by the B-2710 and yes the loader is heavier. The two loaders are built comparable in strenth to the tractor they are mounted to. The cutting edge of the buckets are about the same and the bucket material is about the same. You can often use a loader for more than it is designed for but you need to use common (cents) and good judgement. There is 5 lbs difference between the 48" bucket on a La272 and the 54" bucket on a La402 which is probably just the weight of the material difference. The top of the bucket is not mean't to do anymore than contain the material from running over the back of the bucket. When fastening hooks or lifting devices off the top of the bucket we always add a top rail for support.
