Default Re: Please identify kubota

A bit of news! I was chatting to a guy a couple of days ago in my yard when he noticed the Kubota. I explained the work in hand regarding the track tensioners and he told me that he was plant engineer many years ago, my ears pricked up he soon showed me how to remove the tracks and told me to spray diesel into the mechanism and leave to soak and get right into the seized area.
Yep..... this made my day folks, so I'll soon be onto the job.
Thanks for the input on here guys.
