« on: July 14, 2008, 01:47:12 PM »
Does anyone have any experience with Kubotas and would like to share that info good or bad?  I think I am about to buy a 29 HP and was wondering what everyones experience has been with them

Thanks

i've heard good things about kubotas but no personal experience. you might want to check out the tractorbynet message board. i don't think its legal to post the link here. google-ize. i have a ford tractor of about the size you are looking at, maybe a little bit smaller.

neighbor has one and really likes it.  we went with a JD because we wanted a bigger machine and the cost was lower.

Thanks Kathy I am familiar with JD that is what we use at the plant where I work, never had much interaction with Kubota but I havn't heard anything bad so far so thats a good thing. I think I am getting a pretty good deal on this one its used. I'm going to look at it this afternoon so hopefully its not sitting in a puddle of transmission fluid or oil

I owned a small 20 HP for about 15 years. I loved it. My neighbor has two. One is small with a belly mower and a front end loader. The other is about 30 HP with a back hoe and a front end loader. She is crazy about them both.

I have three friends that own Kubotas and they are truly the grits with the gravy, if its in good shape and a good deal buy it!!

My one friend made my food plots last season for me with his, they are very reliable. He made a roof for his from a golf cart roof, works great!
