Kubota L3901 & L3301 Filter Cross Reference Info

The Kubota L3901 and L3301 are the bigger brothers to the very popular L2501. With more horsepower than the L2501, the L3901 and L3301 are more capable of pulling power hungry attachments. The only real difference in the L3301 and the L3901 is horsepower, and they actually use the same engine, the 3301 is just slightly de-rated to decrease it’s horsepower output. This means that both models use the same filters.

L3301 Oil Filter Cross Reference

No tractor manufacturer in the United States actually makes their own filters, they have filter companies like Fleetguard make them. Many OEM Kubota filters are in fact Fleetguard filters stamped with the Kubota name. In our experience, you can often save money on filter changes (without sacrificing any performance or reliability) by using a high quality aftermarket filter like a Fleetguard, Donaldson or Baldwin filter. Using the Kubota L3901/L3301 filter cross reference part numbers in this guide, you can easily compare the cost of OEM filters vs. aftermarket filters. If the OEM Kubota filter is close in price to the aftermarket filter, sticking to a Kubota filter is your best bet. But most of the time you will find significant savings with aftermarket options. In the end the brand of your filter is MUCH less important than changing them at the correct amount of hours. On to the L3901/L3301 filter cross reference tables:

The Kubota L3301 and L3901 oil capacity is 7.1 quarts of 15w40. The best oil you can use to protect your tractor is Rotella T6. It is a full synthetic and consistently comes in at the top of oil comparison wear tests. At one point in time Chevron manufactured Kubota branded oil, right now its really hard to tell who actually makes it.

Since these newer machines have DPF filters it is EXTREMELY important to use an oil that meets CK4 API spec. If you have old CJ4 spec oil laying around it should not be used with a machine that has a DPF filter. Rotella T6 is DPF safe and is CK4. New Kubota oil meets CK4 spec as well, and would be my 2nd choice for oil. Here are a couple that we recommend: Check Price: Rotella T6 Full Synthetic 15W-40 Diesel Engine Oil (1-Gallon, Case of 3) or Kubota 4PK 1 Gallon SAE 15W-40 Engine Oil
