 Changing Fluids Kubota 3010

This is my first tractor and although I can read the owners manual, I still have a few questions. Why is there 2 places on the oil pan to remove the oil? On the transmission there seems to be only one but the manual has an arrow pointing to 3 0r 4 places that they tell you to drain. I actually can't locate them all of them. For the hydraulic fluid, how many places do you need to drain? Thanks for your help.

Tim, I'm not familiar enough with the 3010, but look closely at that manual. My B2710 had two drains in the oil pan because the pan came down on both sides of the front driveshaft, so I suspect yours is similar. And the 2710 had 4 places to drain hydraulic fluid (in addition to the two strainers - later models only have one strainer). I missed one of the hydraulic drain plugs the first time I changed it.

Like Bird says; 'follow the manual.' The drain ports will be there somewhere. My old Ford has only one oil drain on the engine but there are three for the TX/Diff, which also is the hydraulic oil sump, and there are three for the front axle.

A couple of comments about changing oil. First is to know how much oil the reservoir holds. Most people don't have a drain pan that can hold as much as most tractor sumps. You have to plan for drain pan swapping. My tractor holds more than 5-gallons, so it would overflow a 5-gallon bucket too. Of course, the tractor doesn't have enough ground clearance for a bucket so I have to use a pan, and that's something to plan for as well.

Getting oil back into the tractor can be a pain. Five-gallon buckets of oil get heavy if you're trying to balance them while pouring into a funnel. Even if I looked like Pop-Eye, that technique would still be impossible for filling my front axle. There's no space for getting even a tiny funnel anywhere near vertical. More planning, I bought a pail pump that replaces the lid on a standard 5-gallon oil bucket.

i just had a new 3010 delivered last week...as this will be used mostly for mowing and a little FEL work on the 16 acres we own, i will only put around 10-15 hrs a month during the summer, maybe 75-100 in a busy year...therefore i am planning on letting the dealer do the 50 hr fluid changeout / maint. work...since i will only need this done about once a yr, the price of letting him do it seeems worth it to me...but with that being said, does anyone know a ballpark figure i might expect to pay to have this 50 hr work done, and then the normal maintence from then on...such as the oil.filter change every 100 hrs after that...i live in north texas if it makes that much of a difference....

You might ask the dealer. I'd guess that general repair work would be charged at an hourly rate, but servicing likely is a flat rate.

Maybe I'm commenting on stuff that's well known, but I'll carry on. I'm almost 200 miles from a dealer. Even if I could trailer the tractor myself, just getting it to the dealer would really run up the costs, so I do all servicing and any repair work I can manage myself. Most dealers do have mobile repair services, but mechanics are paid their rates during travel so it's not very realistic for small jobs. Most areas also are served by mobile tire repair shops. They can repair or replace most tires on a tractor that's still in the field. A flat may seem like a little problem, but a flat on a large loaded tire is a problem and worth the cost for a mobile repair.
