I just got my new 3038e a couple of days ago. I took it out this morning to use the loader to clean up a little of the 8+ inches of heavy, wet, slushy snow we got on Thursday.
I started working the loader and realized there is no bucket level indicator rod on the bucket like there was on my 2520. With the 61" bucket I couldn't even lean out to the side to see if the cutting edge was level with the ground or not. I don't know why I didn't notice it when I test drove the tractor at the dealer, but I didn't.
There is a "bucket level indicator" sticker on the top of the bucket. What up with that? It doesn't indicate if the cutting edge is level with the ground, or am I missing something. I looked in the 305 Loader Owners Manual and that's all it says about a level indicator is the sticker is placed on top of the bucket so the operator can see the sticker from the drivers seat.
Will the Bucket Level Indicator Kit that's on the 2520/2720 work on the 3038e? I measured the loader arms and there's less than 2" difference in length. Or does someone have a home built one that will work?
I know "e" stands for economy for the tractor, but this is on the loader.
I did get the snow moved, but there are few gouges in the gravel driveway I'll have to fix later.
Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
