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
chocks, 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 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 Loader Boom 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.
Application
The Kubota LB60 (Loader Boom) is a construction grade
lifting device designed with the contractor, landscaper, or
farmer/rancher in mind. Using the LB60 gives the user
the ability to reach higher and out further from the skid
steer. This comes in handy when loading material onto a
trailer or when carrying tall vertical objects such as trees,
rocks, and shrubs in a nursery or landscape setting.
Contractors will find removing concrete forms with this
tool will eliminate a tremendous amount of human labor
as well as speed up the process. Two 1" lifting lugs along
with stabilizing chain slots on each side gives the LB60
the ability to connect to almost any object that falls within
the skid steer’s capability.
With only one model and size, the LB60 covers any lifting
chore 6000 lbs. and under. You will quickly find that the
Kubota LB60 will save you time and money by making
your loading/unloading operations more efficient.

Transport Safety
!
WARNING
To prevent serious injury or death:
• Follow all safety precautions when transporting a load. Not
using safe transporting methods can damage the equipment
and cause serious injury or death.
•
Allow only persons to operate this attachment who have
fully read and comprehended this manual, who are properly
trained to operate the attachment safely, and who are age 16
or older. Serious injury or death can result from the failure
to read, understand, and follow instructions provided in this
manual.
•
Keep equipment and suspended load away from electrical
power lines. Place an orange warning sign under overhead
electrical power lines indicating type of danger above.
•
Always transport loads as close to the ground as possible
without hitting objects. A load carried high could shift
causing the load to fall, tipping of the machine, and/or loss
of control.
•
Transporting loads across inclines, over ramps, on bumpy,
soft, or slippery surfaces reduces machine stability and lift
capacity. Transporting and lifting loads under these
conditions is extremely dangerous. Follow all transport
instructions in your power machine Operator’s Manual.
•
Always travel straight up and straight down inclines. Make
turns only on level ground.
•
Always transport over ramps and inclines with the heavy
end of the power machine on the “uphill” side. This may
require one to drive up and back down inclines.
•
When traveling on public roadways, travel in such a way
that faster moving vehicles may pass safely. Use accessory
lights and devices for adequate warning to operators of
other vehicles. Comply with all federal, state, and local
laws.
•
Lightweight skid steers may need weight added to the rear
to maintain steering control and prevent tipping. Consult
your skid steer Operator’s Manual to determine proper
weight requirements and maximum weight limitations.
DANGER
To prevent serious injury or death:
• A crushing hazard always exists around equipment
handling suspended loads. Stay clear of suspended loads.
Do not abuse equipment. Incorrect use of the attachment
can damage equipment structurally and cause serious
injury or death.
Do not lift loads exceeding rated capacity of the Loader
Boom or tipping load of skid steer.

Section 2: Operating Procedures
Loader Boom Operation
Before operating the Loader Boom, scan the area for
obstacles and over head power lines. Be aware of
pedestrians and other workers in the area.
Make sure the Loader Boom is correctly attached to skid
steer and in good working condition. Check that all
shackles, chains and other devices are correctly
attached and in good working condition.
Pick Up Load
Refer to Figure 2-1:
!
11. Once load is raised, tilt boom forward to remove slack
from the stabilizing chains or straps.
12. Position the load at a safe traveling height before
moving. Two to four inches above the ground is
recommended traveling height.
Travel With Load
Refer to Transport Safety on page 11:
!
WARNING
To avoid serious injury or death:
Loads that require the loader arms to be raised to allow the
chain to be connected or disconnected must be hooked to the
shackle by someone other than the operator. The operator
should not dismount the skid steer with the loader arms raised.
1.
10. If when raising the load, the stabilizing chains or
straps begin to assist in lifting or begin to pull the
load, set the load down and reposition chain so that
it only assists in minimizing the load from swinging.
•
Drive the skid steer up to the load that will be lifted
and park the skid steer.
2. Make sure the load does not exceed the smaller of
two lift capacities:
• 6000lb rated lift capacity of the Loader Boom.
• Adjusted lift capacity of skid steer. See Figure 2-1
on page 11.
3. Inspect area for any overhead lines. Make sure that
there is enough clearance to lift the load.
IMPORTANT: The Loader Boom is only designed to
lift from shackle lugs. Do not attempt to use any
other part of the boom to secure lines for lifting. This
could result in damage to the Loader Boom.
4. Position shackle lug (#1) or (#2) above the load’s
center of gravity. Lower skid steer loader arms all the
way while keeping the shackle lug over the load’s
center of gravity.
IMPORTANT: The operator must determine which
shackle lug is best to use for the load being lifted.
Use only one shackle lug at a time.
WARNING
To avoid serious injury or death:
• Identify any overhead electric power lines and do not come
in contact with them.
Always utilize stabilizing chains or straps to prevent the
load from swinging. Excessive swinging of the load can
cause the skid steer to become unstable and tip or result in
the load impacting the operator’s zone.
IMPORTANT: Pedestrians always have right-of-way.
1.
Keep stabilizer chains or straps tight to prevent load
from swinging.
2. Keep load low, two to four inches above the ground,
when possible.
3. Continually scan for pedestrians or other traffic.
4. If load is large and blocks your view, travel in reverse
or with a spotter.
5. 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.
6. Always drive at a safe speed and slow down when
going around corners. Avoid sudden braking.
7.
Leave enough clearance when turning to keep the
load from contacting obstacles such as storage
racks, buildings, trees, or fences.
5. Shut the skid steer down. See “Skid Steer
Shutdown Procedures” on page 9.
8. When traveling over a ramp or incline, keep load on
the “uphill” side of the skid steer.
6. Connect the load to the Loader Boom. Make sure the
load is balanced and secure.
9. When possible, travel straight up and down grades,
ramps, and inclines. Avoid making turns on grades,
ramps, and inclines.
7.
Use two or more chains or straps to secure the load
to the holes in side plates (#3). This is to stabilize the
load and prevent it from swinging.
8. Restart the skid steer. Lift loader arms to remove all
slack and make sure the shackle lug (#1) or (#2) is
still over the load’s center of gravity.
9. Begin lifting the load off the ground. If the load begins
to excessively move to the side, then set the load
back down and reposition over the center of gravity.
!
WARNING
To avoid serious injury or death:
Be aware of load when traveling on inclines and keep
stabilizer chains or straps tight by tilting the boom. Failure to
do so can result in load impacting the operator’s zone.
10. Raise or lower load only when stopped, never while
traveling.
11. Slow down when traveling over rough or hilly terrain.

Operating Instructions
By now you should have familiarized yourself with the
Operator’s Manual for your Loader Boom. If you haven’t,
please do so now. We cannot over-stress the importance
of following the safety operating procedures that are
spelled out in this Manual.
Proceed by getting onto the seat of your skid steer and
starting it up. It isn’t going to take you long to learn how to
use your new Kubota Loader Boom.
We recommend that you take a little time to practice
securely attaching and detaching your Loader Boom to
and from your skid steer hitch. It is also important to
practice lifting, lowering and maneuvering the Loader
Boom on a level site until you gain the confidence and
skill needed to have a good feel in what you are doing.
As you quickly become more skilled and adept in using
your Loader Boom, you will soon learn that it is always
more important to focus on the don’ts than it is to focus on
the dos. For example, don’t exceed the lift capacity of
your Loader Boom or skid steer. Don’t lift your load too
high creating an unstable load and unsafe situation. Don’t
allow the load to swing excessively, setting up a situation
that could cause your skid steer to lose balance or even
tip over. Don’t drive too fast for your ground and load
conditions. Don’t work on or around slippery or sloped
areas that could cause you to lose control of the skid
steer. Don’t allow pedestrians, pets, or livestock to
approach the danger zone of your working area. Don’t
leave your skid steer with the Loader Boom raised off of
the ground, with or without a load.
If you follow these few safety reminders, you will find that
you will quickly become very adept, handy, and skillful at
using your Kubota Loader Boom.
See “Specifications & Capacities” on page 16 and
“Features & Benefits” on page 17 of your Operator’s
Manual for additional information.
