 Where is the parking brake on my Kubota

Hello,

I actually don't own it yet, but I am about to pull the trigger on an L3830 and just realized I don't know where the parking brake is. So, where is it? I looked at the kubota.com, but don't see any mention of it. Sorry for the silly question.

WHEN YOU PRESS DOWN ON THE BRAKES THERE IS A LEVER IN FRONT OF YOUR RIGHT KNEE. PULL UP ON IT AND IT LOCKS THE BRAKES INTO PLACE. TO RELEASE IT SIMPLY PRESS DOWN ON YOUR BRAKES.

When you place the order for the tractor ask for the manuals and read carefully. Then when you get the tractor you will know all of these little things. After you have used it for a few hours go back and reread the manual, things seem to make more sense after you have had your hands on the tractor.

 Where is the parking brake on my Kubota

...and make the dealer give you instruction on everything and answer all questions. When my dealer delivered my 3830 he spent a great deal of time not only showing me all the controls and features but connected/disconnected things from the 3pt hitch, demonstrated the bushhog, pushed over a small tree, moved some stuff with the loader, and showed me 1st hand how much of a slope the tractor would handle both sideways and straight up and down. Since I was inexperienced at the time this was all a great help.

Since I had to wait a few weeks for delivery, he also gave me the manual ahead of time so I could study it before the tractor came.

=====================================
How much slope was that?

How can you tell the angle or degree of a slope?

>How much slope was that?

I didn't measure the slope, but it was more than I would have expected. Slopes scare me more than a little bit so I am very conservative.

Aside: Be aware that there are things you can do with the tractor can suddenly make the tractor roll over even on a "reasonable" slope, so the slope itself isn't everything. Things like dropping a downslope wheel into a depression, running over a stick/stump/rock/hump with a upslope wheel, having soil suddenly give way, lifting or lowering the loader bucket while applying force to just once side, lifting a load high in the bucket, sliding on wet or loose ground, catching or bumping some part of the tractor on a tree, etc. Be way careful. Always have the ROPS in place and locked, wear the seatbelt even in the parking lot, use wheel weights or filled tires, space the wheels out as far as practical, go real slow. And even going straight up/down a slope can be bad if you have a big load or traction problems. For example, I was drive straight up a slope this weekend in 4wd (pulling some dirt with the yard box) when the front wheels lost traction, the front end started moving sideways, and the slope was suddenly more sideways than I intended.

http://www.andrew.cmu.edu/user/kb13/ans_hillsides.htm

You can measure the slope visually with a protractor and stick or piece of cardboard/paper, or use a hand-held or tractor-mounted inclinometer. But that still doesn't tell you the angle it will roll over, even in perfect conditions and perfect traction. For my lawn mower I picked one side up to get a feel for the angle it would take, but I wouldn't try that with my tractor even if I had the means to lift it. Be way careful.

(PS: I may be more conservative than some, but when I got my tractor I read everything I could find about how people have died on a tractor and tried to learn as much as possible from them. For example, even driving through the woods can be a big hazard if you bump a tree and disloge a "widowmaker" over your head, or if you turn around and a wimpy little sapling you knocked over on the way in snakes up the frame and impails you through the groin - I read about that one in a wood-harvesting book. Another one: my neighbor's grandfather was killed when wasps began stinging him and in his panic he jumped off the tractor and got caught under the wheel - now I bushhog in the summer with long sleves, hat, and netting)
