    2038R - 270B Backhoe - How Does This Happen???

    I was digging out a stump yesterday morning just like the last ten stumps I have already dug out with my beautiful new 2038R equipped with 270B Backhoe and all of a sudden my bucket is barely moving anymore... . I get off the tractor to inspect and this is what I find...... Please explain to me how this happens???? I personally think the 270B needs a larger diameter piston (current piston size is 1" diameter) if the hydraulics and design geometry are strong enough to cause this kind of damage..... This tractor newbie needs some feedback from you experienced guys.... please....

    Thanks sincerely.....


    This is the stump I was working on...

    Ouch.... That sucks. I don't know if they'll cover that under warranty. I guess that depends on your dealer.

    It can happen from a poor design, Kubota had that issue years ago with the BH77 model, bigger cylinders where used IIRC to solve it under warranty. I don't think that is the issue here but it is a new model.

    It can also happen if the cylinder is laterally loaded while under compression, say your closing the bucket (piston extending) and the ram is forced into a big root or the side of the hole.

    That looks about like what I did to my 46 BH bucked cyl rod once upon a time....

    I leveraged it under a stout root and tried to curl and bent the rod against the root-cost me a cyl rebuild at a local shop but it was 1/2 what Deere wanted for a whole new one. Costly way to learn how not to dig stumps

    Good luck with a repair or replacement, like was stated above-dealer may help out depending on them.

    It looks like you hit the stump with the ram... not hard to do.

    Funny thing was I didn't have the rod against the root. The hydraulic cylinder never made contact with anything.

    What do you think the issue is here? There was never any lateral load put on the piston that I remember. There's not a single mark on the piston four-cylinder.
