 LOCKIN FRONT DIFF

I spent the better part of an hour today with a Kubota Corporate rep letting him hear it about all good and bad I could think of for Kubotas. I remembered to mention the issues raised here about the rtv. I asked about the front diff and why no lock. He said it was an issue of durability. I told him European compacts have optional electro/hydraulic front diff locks and the rtv is supposed to be built like a compact. He was worried about it being left engaged. I said it should be momentary on like the rear one, that way it would only be on while button held in. He liked that idea. I also mentioned the lack of HP and said TURBO. He sympathized with lack but felt the constant on off of engine like Utility vehicles often have, would be too hard on turbo, but he did say they put them on many tractors where they can fit them. I pressed him about larger HYDRO tractors. He let the cat out of the bag and said they have made a prototype 9000 model utility with about 80HP and put a hydro in it. Now that is what I am talking about. He said he did not know if it would ever make it to production. That's alright, I only need one.

 LOCKIN FRONT DIFF

It was at a farm show and I was just lucky that Kubota sent a real rep and not just a dealer salesman. I may see another one thursday at a different show, so let me know anything you may ask and I will see what I can do.
