 Kubota Q s for Art

Where can I find a cat1 top link for my BX that is at least 3 inches shorter than the factory item?
Whats the difference between UDT and Super UDT? My BX22 manual sez to use Super, do they cross over?
Thanks in advance.

Mark, We go to after market for the top links when the factory ones are to short or to long. The paint doesn't match well but getting the job done is important and a quick Dupont tune-up takes care of the colors. UDT is the standard hydraulic fluid for Kubota and vary simuliar to other hydraulic fluids. Super is a partial synthetic that was built mainly for the Glideshift transmission. The super is a little thinner and helps in cold weather to get circulating faster.

Art, thanks. Does my BX22 REQUIRE Super UDT? Or will regular stuff do? I don't think I have a glide shift.
Can you point me in the right direction or sell me a Cat 1 top link with a 7 or 7 1/2 body ?

Mark, that is really short for a top link. I was just checking and I don't have a new BX at this store to compare but my shortest aftermarket has a 13" body on it and sells for $22.61. We have cut and shortened them in the past for different applications, I can handle that. I'm just curious as to why so short. On the oil, I will try and contact Kubota to get a good read out on it. I have some resevation but you might be alright with just UDT. I say that as they use a fan to cool the hydro which means they might have more heat to dissapate. We had one customer that called and said his oil was boiling out of the rear of his tractor. He was doing extensive gradeing and brush removal with the loader and a box alder tree or limb wiped out his fan underneath his tractor. For that reason I will hold, the larger B-series will take, and state that in the owners manual, both can be used.

The BX comes with a link that has a 10 1/2" body. At it's shortest I cannot hook up my box scraper unless I tip it up several inches with the lower arms first then it just barely sits level. If I have to drive the tractor up an embankment to get to where I want to work I am going to do some box scraping along the way whether I want to or not.
Same deal with my ballast box. With the link cranked all the way in and the 3 pt. Hitch all the way up, the box tips backward and drags on the ground on rough terrain.
I experimented with some other hardware and made a makeshift link and took some measurements. If I cut 3 inches out of the body and cut 1.5 inches from each threaded portion, I can crank to implements close to the tractor for ground clearance and still have two inches of link to unscrew after the box scraper comes back to level. I donít know how people out there are making it work as it is. I guess most folks buy them to mow with and do very little dirt work with rear implements.
On the hydro oil, I didnít think about the heat buildup problem. I did notice the fan and thought it needed a skid plate for extra protection. Maybe the BX engine turning at 3200 rpms puts more stress on the oil that the 7500 at 2600 rpm. That might be why the manual calls for the top of the line fluid. Let me know what you find out. Mark

Mark, from time to time in the past we have had to cut and weld top links before just as you describe. I have not to the best of my knowledge had to do that to any of the BX top links yet. We have had to play with the widths of the links on the lower pins but we have had to do that numerous times before on all makes and sizes. If I was to cut one I normally cut an aftermarket one and leave the factory one original. I like leaving the equipment original and stock.
