Hi John, My name is***** understand correctly you are losing power to the fuel shutoff solenoid. check your safety switches such as seat and PTO switches that might be causing a shutdown. Let me know

Expert:  JON replied 1 year ago.

Solenoid fuel cut off with many Kubotas is due to a malfunctioning timer switch located under the instrument panel (part # *****; about $75). It seems to be common knowledge among dealers and service personnel. One only hopes the replacements are better than the original. Could just be a bad solenoid also.
