Kubota Tractors

:iconhumanknotgirl:
humanknotgirl Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2012
My dad owns one. Today I used it because we have more than seven inches of snow and I needed to clear the driveway so my dad can actually park his truck tonight (when that seven will increase to fourteen or more). For some reason, it kept stalling in reverse. Only in reverse. I couldn't figure it out. If I took my foot off the pedal it was perfectly OK, but put it back on and it would stop again.

When I finished up and put it back in the garage, I went inside and googled the problem. Apparently there's a safety feature where, it it detects you are not in your seat, it powers down the engine. Automatically. Whether you want it to or not. Therefore, every time I shifted in my seat or raised myself up to look behind me, I had this happen without realizing it. And then I remembered the one piece of advice my dad told me that I didn't really care to listen to:

"Wear the seatbelt when using the tractor."

Now I know why. :stare:

Bonus Complaint: I was out there for two hours, and two hours from now, it's going to look like I was never out there to begin with. All my work, completely covered up. :iconsadtardplz:

Just chuck a sand bag on the seat, that's what they do at work.

So the tractor wasn't at fault, it was clearly your foolishness and inability to listen. I am just saying. :shrug:

That safety feature has saved countless poor fools from getting shredded to hamburger by their own riding lawnmowers when it flipped over on the side of a hill so it's really less of a petty annoying thing than you'd think. I can't complain about having to shovel because my apartment has to do that all for me. :la:

Except this tractor doesn't have the blade assembly attached. It's used exclusively for dirt and snow, and I don't think my dad even bought the attachments. So I don't get why he keeps the safety on.

I suppose it at least keeps it from running you over, then. I guess.

Lucky, I wish I owned a tractor....I'd feel so deliciously white-trash where I live! :la:

But it's a Kubota, not a John Deere! John Deere is the redneck of tractors.

Fair enough. My dad kind of has a semi-rednecky vibe to him I guess. But the damn thing does come in handy.

Seriously. Manufacturers need to get rid of a good 75% of them. I almost got in a car accident this morning in the family pickup (18 years old now, almost no safety features) and ended up sliding into an embankment. You know what saved me? ABS, my parking brake, and some quick thinking. Take that, Stabilitrak!
