 kubota gst

i would like to hear from other kubota gst owners. It seems everyone on here says its hst or nothing. i have operated lots of construction equipment and for the life of me can't figure why everyone goes for the hst. yes it is easy to operate for the average acreage owner but for a get the power to the ground and work this thing a gst can not be touched by a hst. i can and do out perform the hst every day... hst is nice for the ease of operation but i will take my kubota 3430 over any jd hst or even kubota hst and do more tough work than either one of them. The hst jd on the 4310 i have operated several times to me is sloppy and underpowered

I don't think everyone here says it's HST or nothing, but for ease of operation, infinitely variable speed, hillside safety and resale value the HST can't be beat. Not sure what you mean by sloppy and underpowered, mine works fine and the loadmatch feature alone on JD's eHydro makes is worth it IMHO. But to each his own, I'm sure the GST works fine. It's probably a lot like the "baby duck" syndrome, people tend to buy what they learned to use and are comfortable with.

The GST is a nice trans as well as the HST. BUT the statement of out working a HST, I feel it is all in the operator.

'All in the operator...' As a new HST owner I would love to hear some tips and techniques on how to maximize HST effectiveness. I love the ability to creep up to something (implement hookup) and the ease of maneuvering. My standard-xmission friends swear by those as well. 'Transmission Affinity' seems almost as strong as 'Brand Affinity' in the tractor community.

amobcp - Being that you & I use our's commercially, I completey understand what your saying & agree 100%. HST is great for a homeowner with large acreage which seems to me most of the guys on here. I have rented, demoed & used the 4310 ehydro many times. They do seem to have less power to the ground but that might just be the feel you & I are getting. As a guy who works his tractor almost everyday very hard, I would agree the GST is the only way to go! I dont know what I would do with out my foot throttle.

I learned on a standard trans and used them for years. The HST on my BX, although be it a small tractor, is a massive improvement IMHO. I'd be curious to try out an HST on a larger machine with an FEL.

The GST is actually much like many of the larger farm tractors with the power shift transmissions. It is a great transmission and has proven it's relaibility over the last 15 years in production. The newer 12 speed is the best so far and does work very smooth. The hydro's need to be in the right range to have the power at the chosen RPM. When used that way they are tough to beat in any job even those made more for gear drive tractors. The flexibility of the hydro's speeds without use of the clutch makes a large difference.

Hey Art - I just got my L3130 back from the first service & my dealer is waiting to hear back from kubota on how to turn the service light off on my instrument panel. Would you happen to know?

he is right i think it is on page 49 of the owners manual. I did not write this post to say that the hst is not a great product. but i wish people would understand that the gst is for the operator that has experience and it is a great trans that can really get the job done. I love this forum and am not trying to make hst owners mad but it is not the solution to the tractor trans. I will stand behind everything i have said untill somebody can out do the gst with a hst with the same experience
