I'm looking at a Kubota in the 100hp range. Anyoen have any experience, comments?
Not that many of them around here. Never heard anyone say anthing bad about them. The dealer that sold them drop them from his inventory. Not sure how hard it is to get parts. That would be my biggest concern I think.
We've got several of them in my location. One dealer really pushes the hell out of them for light duty tractors. Mainly used for front end loader work, haying and pulling sprayers. Don't see any of them doing field or tillage work.
I bought an M6-111 with loader to replace my Oliver 1855 with loader that is just getting tired. Hope it works out. Looked at NH T4-120, Farmall 100A and JD 6105E. Therre were things to like on each of them. I decided I liked the transmission and cab on the kubota. The Deere was higher, the blue and red cheaper, but I took the plunge and we'll see how it goes.
I'll use it for light field work as well as loader work. Looking forward to a comfortablel cab for a change.
I pull BR7070 round balers with them through the summer and stack rounds with the loaders on them as well. Feed hay through the winter, push snow, etc. The differentials even have lockers in both ends. Big, roomy cabs and good visibility. Always start easy in cold weather as well.
Thanks for the feedback. I don't have much work for mine until spring, but drove it around a llittle and figured out it's smarter than I am. So far so good. Any special tips to watch for?
