Kubota L2550D dash warning light

I have the above tractor and when driving it today it was making a bit of a squeeling noise, couldn't tell where it was coming from.

I left it on the drive ticking over when the engine suddenly started labouring as if under load. I jumped in to turn it off and there was a light on on the dash on the far right, which looks like a pot with an arrow coming in from either side and a dashed line at the bottom.

Does anyone know what it is ?

I carefully drove it back to the yard and there was still a slight squeal every now and again but it obviously needs looking at asap. I just need to know what the light is first

Sounds like the engine oil pressure telltale.

Re: Kubota L2550D dash warning light

well its obviously a bog seat with emergency hand grabs, have you checked the bog roll holder, you will be sorry if its empty
on second thoughts it appears to be engine oil level, i'd guess the cog with arrows is gear oil level and the bog seat shape refers to the engine?

Re: Kubota L2550D dash warning light

Have you tried asking on this forum? Or checking the FAQ?

Kubota Tractor Discussion Board

Looks very comprehensive. If they can't help I shouldn't think anyone can!

Best wishes,

John Russell

Re: Kubota L2550D dash warning light

Dean, if its No 7 its definately oil pressure.

Weren't Nos 1 or 2 on though? Should have been if oil pressure light was on.

Going from memory, here's a few I know;

No4; eng oil temp
No5; hyd oil temp
No6; hyd oil pressure
No7; eng oil pressure
No8; High beam
No9; Charge
No10; engine air filter
No11; hyd oil filter

Hope that helps Dean, been a few sleeps since i was on a mechanical horse!
