It is in pretty good condition.The tractor is a 1994.An older gentleman had it,and traded it in  at the local Kubota dealership, for a new smaller Kubota.This is the photo for the dealer's ad.

Bi-speed turn is hydraulic over-spooling of the front wheels when in 4wd. Meant to be used on hilly terrain for mowing, blowing or plowing on slick surfaces, or general use when 4wd is required but don't want to lose turning radius ability. It kicks in on the outside wheel on a turn past 35 degrees. Increases wheel speed to 1.6 x's the normal speed.

 

Not to be used with excessive weight loads on the front end, mainly loader work.

The way I understand it,"Bi-Speed Turn"  is a mechanism in the front axle which ,when in four wheel drive,speeds up the outer front wheel so in doesn't scuff the turf as bad.Also apparently aids in making sharper ,smoother turns in 4x4 too.

I also read that the bi-speed and the B1750 is a good match, it didn't work as well on the bigger machines.
