 What Tractor parts should be OEM factory only

Yesterday went to get two parts for my M6800 Kubota. One a flasher and other exhaust pipe. Flasher was $70 some dollars it is ordered. The exhaust pipe was over a $100. FYI it is about 3 feet long with a slight elbow to blow exhaust from driver.

I went to muffler shop and had pipe made for $15 out of heavier gage pipe and frankly think better treated metal. Did go with flasher.

About three years back replaced the seat with an above average after market one and sure miss the Kubota's comfort. It just fit better.

So what parts do you think makes sense to buy the OEM one and what ones do you feel it does not?

I buy most of the generic stuff after market. Many parts you can only get from the dealer.

Filters, oils, antifreeze, grease, pins, bulbs, bushings, battery, tires. I am going to check avaiability of air filters. From commercial sources.

Your exaust is a prime example of creative thinking. $70 for a flasher is crazy. But that is the problem with design changes every couple years. I might be willing to look into a pair of LED flashers so they match before I hand over that much$ for 1.

Guts, or specialty fit items such as fenders etc. filters and other consumables look for best fit from other sources.
As you run Kubota also, have you found a good sub for the UDT oil?

Taogden,

The best substitute I've found for the UDT oil is from Cenex. Look for Cenex Qwiklift. It's listed as a suitable replacement for Kubota's UDT and Super UDT fluids.

Qwiklift has properties that I especially like, such as its ability to flow freely at temperatures as low as -40 F. The price is very reasonable, besides.

Click on the link below. You'll find the spec sheet for Qwiklift in TRACTOR FLUIDS section.

I get a little fussy sometimes but it's like the recommendation on oil. Many people like shell rotella, problem is the oils I like from the manufacturers is not the same grade to begin with as what we sell. To get to that you need to move up to the rimula grade. Factory original parts are hard to beat although it is sometimes more difficult to find the right part that is the replacement.

Art White,

I'm pretty fussy about my replacement parts, too. Most every part I purchase comes directly from a Kubota dealer.

I've considered installing hydraulic remote outlets on my B2920. The dealer price is very high, but I really like Kubota's factory fit and design. It's hard to beat the clean appearance offered by Kubota. I think it would be worth the price to go with Kubota's factory hydraulics.......especially when compared to the price of something much less appealing to the eye. When all is said and done, the savings wouldn't be all that great anyway.

Joel

On batteries, I have bought batteries from two different sources mostly for last few years, Parts Plus being one. Their prices have jumped and warranties are only 2 or 3 years max. Have found their batteries are only last it seems 1 or 2 months longer than the 2 or 3 year warranty. Then looked at another Trsctor Supply and found longer warranties and lower prices. Just more proof you need to be a careful shopper. Want to say my orgininal Kubota batteries lasted for 8 or so years. No trickle charger but no zero weather either.

Joel you are correct with your thoughts on the valve. I've had people that have put there own systems together and they did work! There was only one thing that took away and that was the looks! Running 1/2 pipe and hoses that are to long draped over the fender actually took more value away from the trade then what it was worth to buy the factory ones which to me on a five year old tractor are worth at a minimum 1/2 half of the price paid.

Art, when I see such it makes me wonder what else I don't see is like that. I bought an older small dump truck this year and let my heart and not brain make the decision. When my brain finally got my attention it said it has been patched over the years and not repaired. The person who owned it had small garage and towing, salvage business. His repairs must have come from the salvage side.
