Price Paid : $14,000.00
Years of Use : New Owner (0-1 Year)
Implements : 54" Mid-Mount Mower, Front End Loader
Purchased From : York Tractor
Strengths Extremely comfortable with lots of room. Seat is very good. Power is excellent. Center of gravity seems much lower than my old tractor (doesn't feel like I'm going to roll off on slight grades). Tooth bar was a good addition to the bucket. Seems like a well designed, practical tractor. Implements go off and on like a dream. Mower deck cuts much nicer than the old tractor.
Weaknesses Knobs on control levers come off too easily. As with other review for this model, it seems to continue, or drift when the drive pedal is released. Seems to be binding slightly with the brake pedal. Maybe it just needs to "wear in."
Overall My old tractor was a New Holland TC18. I was horribly disappointed in it. Dealer and manufacturer support was terrible. I never saw a machine rattle out "locked" pins and bolts like it did. The implements were a nightmare to change. It took me "2 days" to switch the dozer blade and mower deck. Anyhow, it looks like Kubota is lightyears ahead of New Holland.
