My wife and I have some property we’re fixing up, and today we took delivery of our 1023e with loader, MMM, basically every attachment you could hope for. This will mainly be hers as I have the M5400 kubota and the old 2240 for mowing and dirt work.
Anyway, we opted for the previous MY 1023 to save money for implements, and my one big gripe was the lack of cruise control. Aha! Being the diese mechanic I am, I had to do a two hour inspection on the tractor before I’d put it to work. Our local dealer did a great job, save for missing a few cotter pins on the steering cylinder and not greasing the MMM. I get it, they’re busy, thankfully I fought everything and it can be fixed quite easily.
While I was under the tractor, I noticed a small lever hanging between the frame rails, just below the park brake lever. It appears to be the pawl that would grip the teeth of the forward direction pedal for the cruise. Has anyone done a clean (not too hacked) install of custom, aftermarket cruise? For now I’ve tied a string to it and threaded it up to my throttle so that I simply pull up for cruise and hit the forward pedal to release it.
My apologies for a long post, I tried searching for this and couldn’t find the topic with a solution.
