Kubota Tractors

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:
