4/9/19
!
Look for the Safety Alert Symbol
The SAFETY ALERT SYMBOL indicates there is a
potential hazard to personal safety involved and extra
safety precaution must be taken. When you see this
symbol, be alert and carefully read the message that
follows it. In addition to design and configuration of
equipment, hazard control, and accident prevention are
dependent upon the awareness, concern, prudence, and
proper training of personnel involved in the operation,
transport, maintenance, and storage of equipment.
Be Aware of

1
Important Safety Information
These are common practices that may or may not be applicable to the products described in
this manual.
Dig Safe - Avoid
Underground Utilities
 USA: Call 811
CAN: digsafecanada.ca
Always contact your local utility
companies (electrical, telephone,
gas, water, sewer, and others)
before digging so that they may
mark the location of any
underground services in the
area.
 Be sure to ask how close you can
work to the marks they
positioned.
2
Transport Safely
 Comply with federal, state, and
local laws.
 Use towing vehicle and trailer of
adequate size and capacity. Secure
equipment towed on a trailer with
tie downs and chains.
 Sudden braking can cause a towed
trailer to swerve and upset. Reduce
speed if towed trailer is not
equipped with brakes.
 Avoid contact with any overhead
utility lines or electrically charged
conductors.
 Always drive with load on end of
loader arms low to the ground.
 Always drive straight up and down
steep inclines with heavy end of
skid steer or tractor with loader
attachment on the “uphill” side.
Tire Safety
Practice Safe Maintenance
 Tire changing can be dangerous
and must be performed by
trained personnel using the
correct tools and equipment.
 Always maintain correct tire
pressure. Do not inflate tires
above recommended pressures
shown in the Operator’s Manual.

Introduction
Introduction
Kubota welcomes you to the growing family of new
product owners. This Skid Steer Grades has been
designed with care and built by skilled workers using
quality materials. Proper assembly, maintenance, and
safe operating practices will help you get years of
satisfactory use from this attachment.
Definitions
NOTE: A special point of information that the
operator should be aware of before continuing.
IMPORTANT: A special point of information related
to the following topic. Kubota’s intention is this
information must be read & noted before continuing.
Application
The Kubota AP-SG25 Series Skid Steer Graders come in
72" (model AP-SG2572) and 84" (model AP-SG2584)
working widths. They are designed for attaching to 40-95
hp skid steer loaders and tractors equipped with a front
loader and skid steer style mounting hitch plate.
Skid Steer Graders have uses and applications in
landscaping, farms, ranches, dairies, construction sites,
hunting camps, fishing camps, logging sites, mining
operations, large estates, small acreages, sod farms,
and municipal and county rural road maintenance
facilities. These Skid Steer Graders are uniquely
designed to be a user-friendly, low-cost alternative for
road grading applications.
Simply setting a properly adjusted AP-SG25 Series Skid
Steer Grader on the ground, putting lift arms in float, and
driving forward enables the operator to grade off high
spots and fill in ruts and low spots on unimproved roads
and lanes with little or no manipulation of the skid steer
hitch controls. The AP-SG25 Series Skid Steer Grader
simply and quickly moves dirt or aggregate from high
spots to low spots. Should a large accumulation of
unwanted buildup of soil and/or aggregate occur
between the blades, initiating a slight raise on the skid
steer or tractor lift controls will allow excess material to
flow out uniformly and evenly under the leveling grader
blades.
Owner Assistance
The dealer should complete the Online Warranty
Registration at the time of purchase. This information is
necessary to provide you with quality customer service.

Avoid exposure to dust containing crystalline silica
particles. This dust can cause serious injury to the lungs
(silicosis). Because crystalline silica is a basic component
of sand and granite, many activities at construction sites
produce dust containing crystalline silica. Trenching,
sawing and boring of material containing crystalline silica
can produce dust containing crystalline silica.
7.
Secure bucket and Skid Steer Grader to the trailer
with hold-down straps.
! CAUTION
To avoid minor or moderate injury:
• Always keep your feet and legs out from under the shanks.
The shanks can slip from your grip and fall causing injury
to your feet and/or legs.
•
Always keep your feet and hands out from under the blade
carrier when adjusting grader blade height. The blade
carrier can fall causing injury to your feet, legs, and/or

•
Keep equipment away from electrical power lines. Place an
orange warning sign under overhead electrical power lines
indicating type of danger above.
2. Using a hoist or front loader, center the bucket on the
Skid Steer Grader with bucket cutting edge slightly
above the bucket storage lugs on the grader.
•
When traveling on public roads at night or during the day,
use slow moving vehicle sign (SMV sign), accessory lights,
and devices for adequate warning to operators of other
vehicles. Comply with all federal, state, and local laws.
•
When traveling on roadways, transport in such a way that
faster moving vehicles may pass you safely.
1.
Be sure to reduce skid steer or tractor ground speed
when turning; and leave enough clearance so the

Section 3: Operating Instructions
General Operating Instructions
By now you should have read the operator’s manual and
properly attached your AP-SG25 Series Skid Steer
Grader to your skid/loader mounting hitch plate. Whether
you have chosen our AP-SG2584 or AP-SG2596, the
working or grading principals are the same. Your grader
blades should be properly adjusted within the frame to
achieve the desired effect. Depending on local surface
conditions, this may take a little experimentation to get
your adjustments set just right. Simply lower your Skid
Steer Grader until the left-hand and right-hand skid
shoes are firmly in contact with the ground, set control
lever in float, and begin driving forward.
The Kubota APSG25 Series Skid Steer Graders are very
user friendly attachments and with a little practice you
should begin achieving excellent results.
See “Specifications & Capacities” on page 17 and
“Features & Benefits” on page 18 for additional
information and performance enhancing options.
The two grader blades should immediately begin grading
or shaving off high spots on the surface and allowing dirt
or aggregate material to flow under the blades to fill in low
spots. The lower the blades are set, the more aggressive
the cutting and grading action will be. A build up of grass
and/or weeds may occur between the grader blades.
This is no cause for concern. Just use the skid/loader
hydraulic control lever to simply raise the grader slightly
and to allow excess material to flow out from under the
blades in an even and level fashion. Return control lever
back to float position once excess material has emptied
out. You may want to adjust the blade carrier a little if an
unwanted accumulation continues to occur between the
grader blades. When coming within the last 50 feet of a
pass, you will want to raise the Grading Scraper up
enough to feather excess material out to the end.
If grading freshly tilled soil and the skid shoes are digging
into the ground, then use the hydraulic control lever to
hold skid shoes at ground level.
If surface conditions are hard-packed and the grader
blades are unsuccessful in shaving off high spots,
lowering straight shanks to a depth that enables you to
achieve the desired effect. Refer to “Straight Shank
Height Adjustment” on page 11. The shanks can be
used traveling forward and backwards.
If attachment is to be operated in reverse, make sure
visibility to the rear of the power unit is appropriate for the
attachment. Backup camera or mirror is recommended.
Maintain cleanliness of lens or mirror.
You will want to reduce required horsepower when
making multiple ripping passes. To do this you should
adjust the shanks down to the 3rd notch and tilt the top of
skid/loader mounting plate slightly back until the grader
blades are higher than the shanks. You are now ready to
begin ripping. Lower the loader arms until the shanks
penetrate the ground and start driving forward. When you
are through ripping, stop the skid steer or tractor and
raise the shanks fully. Reposition top of skid/loader
mounting plate until the left-hand and right-hand skid
shoes are firmly in contact with the ground, set control
lever in float, and begin driving forward to finish grading.

Check all bolts after using the unit for several hours to be
sure they are tight. Replace any worn, damaged, or
illegible safety labels by obtaining new labels from your
Kubota dealer.
! WARNING
To avoid serious injury or death:
• Do not alter Kubota equipment or replace parts with other
brands. Doing so can cause equipment to perform
improperly and may lead to breakage that can cause bodily
injury or death. Replace parts only with genuine Kubota
parts.
•
Never work under the Skid Steer Grader without blocking it
up properly first. The grader can fall causing bodily injury
or death. Always use solid blocks, never concrete blocks.
•
Frequently check all hardware to make certain it is tight.
Operating attachment with loose pins, bolts, or nuts can
cause attachment to not perform properly and may result in
a serious breakdown that can cause bodily injury or death.
•
Backup alarm must be in good working order to warn
others. Use a backup camera or rear-view mirror that is in
good condition to help see undesirable situations behind the
unit. Drive at a slower speed to compensate for blind spots.
Long-Term Storage
1.
Scrape off compacted dirt and then wash the grader
thoroughly to remove any dirt and grease that may
have accumulated on the grader.
2. Repaint parts where paint is worn or scratched to
prevent rust. A coating of oil may be applied to the
lower unpainted frame area and blades to minimize
oxidation.
3. Check grader blades and bolts for wear and replace
if necessary.
4. Inspect for loose, damaged or worn parts and adjust
or replace as needed.
