**TYPO IN TITLE--SHOULD BE G1800**

 

Hi All--

 

Haven't been active for a while... been selling off my "projects" and keeping the runners, plus been busier than a one-armed paper hanger this summer.

 

Anyway,  I just bought a Kubota B1800 GT with a mower deck at an auction.  I need to pick it up tomorrow (Wednesday) but don't know how to release the hydrostatic tranny so it can be towed in case it won't start and drive on it's own... can anyone help me???

 

I thought I could find an operator's manual somewhere online, but have come up with zilch...

 

Thanks,

 

Smitth

Have you been to the manuals section of this site. Third tab at the top of this page. Don

I fixed the title. Not found any freebie, but this looks cheap.

Not familiar with the 1800 but the 7100 I bought once had the hi/lo rear end with a center neutral.  It was hydro also.

From what I have found, there is no hydro release on the G1800/1900 models.

Yep--first place I checked, also checked the other sites... finally found a downloadable version from Kubota for only $13, so I bought it.

Thanks--similar to my Bolens HT23--this one is only 1 range trans axle, though.

That's what I was afraid of--confirmed about midnight when I finally found, bought and downloaded a manual from the Kubota site.
