Customer Question
2 times I've used it...
I have a 2012 3800 hydrostat with 160 hours on it. The last 2 times I've used it after about 20 minutes into cutting it will lose power all the way down to a n idle very quickly. It will crank back up, or a couple of times it will still idle . Keep going and it will do the the same thing a couple of minutes later. Any suggestions on where to start looking, fuel, coil ????fuel filter was changed 6 weeks ago,didn't notice any trash n bowl.

Kubota, 3800 3 cylinder diesel, hydrostatic trans
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 1 year ago

L3800 Kubota tractor. Have you made a test line from the fuel transfer pump inlet, back into the fuel tank filler opening and ran test to see if performance improves? I assume you changed the fuel filter after it had the problem, and it made no difference? As replacing the filter is always the first step!

I'll try checking lines for debris and tank ...... Chang filter as well and c what happens Thanks
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 1 year ago

OK, running the test just does the test for you , without removing anything. And if all is well, then you haveto check the tank, and the outlet line and the lines and filter up to the fuel transfer pump.

I'll try that , I know with little info u have u think it's a fuel / trash problem or a pump ? Like I said it will run 30 min before it does act up and then several after that
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 1 year ago

That makes me think that the tank ,may have debris that builds up as you run on the outlet tube .
