Default Will it work?

The owner of this fine kubota kept getting stuck while working. He bought a mile marker 8k lb to put on it.

How long until the three point hitch get torn off?

Yes

I was worried that the upper link will fail. It has a small hiem on either end with the threaded rod in-between . I guess we will find out if it is strong enough or not.

Tell him to turn the blade around, plow in reverse and push the snow away from him, and then he won't need the winch. If that don't work sell the tractor and buy one made in America.

Curious, which one would that be? The made in America one?

Not a Kubota fan, I'm just curious.

No more than 4000 pounds will ever be transferred through the upper pin. I'm guessing it is about 3/4" diameter which is .441 square inches. Even cheap steel is at least 20,000 psi meaning that the pin can withstand 8800 pounds. Therefore, you have at least a 2:1 safety factor.

Now, when you really look at it, the majority of the pull will be through the lower pins. Stop worrying.

From what I understand he gets stuck in the back fourty while clearing land. He says there are wet areas in the trail that he is clearing. When it came in the rear wheels had mud packed halfway up the rim.

Old people with too much time on their hands that have kubotas piss me off. Always trying to do way more than what a little tractor is capable of. But the winch will hold, just no reason he should be getting stuck.

I just picked up a 4x4 cut with loader last year. NONE are US made. There are only 5ish companys world wide that build for the rest. kubota is one of the few that build and put their own name on the tractor. Mine for example is a McCormick brand built by LS from Korea. The brand new McCormick's are built by Deadong from Korea. Deadong also builds Bobcat and Kioti tractors. Now LS builds tractors for New Holland, Case, and now their own US based LS name. New holland and case were formerly built by shibura, a Jap company. I could go on and on. You have to buy a pretty big tractor to get something american made. On the plus side they are all being assembled to cutomer spec once they get to the USA and Most use US made attachments.

i would not be worried about that hitch at all. it is made to drag ground engaging equipment that could possibly snag a rock/root and stop the tractor dead in its tracks at any time. plus that looks like a small Kubota B-series. i bet the tractor is <3000# without loaded tires or a loader.

also that is a baby winch. up to 12000# 3pt pto powered logging winches are very popular with small tractors.

look half way down page.
