"I've used this thing for removing stumps, moving timber and large stone, and plowing our long driveway. I first bought it instead of handing over a huge amount of cash to a landscaper to rework our property. It was the best deal I ever made. It just starts every time, no matter the weather, and can take a beating. I am very pleased."

I received a 5' set of Discs, Harrow plow, Augger, Brush Hog, 3point Fork setup,and a 5' foot tiller, and a front end loader."

"My second Kubota, it is 20 years old. About 4 years ago a contractor wanted 6 grand to dig a 30 yard pistol range into a hill. Heck with that, out came the Kubota and 4 days later one range, bermed all around including dragging out a 3 ton boulder (I used log rollers). It does snow removal for a 1100 foot drive in ski country, logs, and runs my wood chipper and generator.
It east water pumps and needs its 3rd replacement. Otherwise, unstoppable."

Great Value in under 30hp Tractor

"I came into Kubota ownership very skeptical of non-American tractors. But the Kubota has changed my mind. It's strong, reliable, full featured, and has more than enough hp and torque to do the job.
I have only 15 acres mostly flat which we use for horses. I use the Kubota for pulling a 5' pull-type bush hog and a finish mower not to mention hauling hay and grain out to the pasture. Even the tallest 4' grass doesn't bog down the little Kubota.
The controls are well laid out and easy to reach and use. The 8 speed tranny is very nice with a good gear for almost all situations. The gas mileage is great too. I bush hogged for 8 hours in the hot sun and used just about 5 gallons of diesel."
