    Default Buying a compact Tractor

    Looking to buy a compact tractor
    The first one i looked at was the kubota BX-25 since they are around the corner from me
    but i am worried that the repair parts will be expensive. Are kubota parts expensive?
    Is there a better compact tractor that is built in north america that is less expensive on parts?

    Thanks Jason

    The smartest thing you can do is stay Japanese built compact. The quality and engineering they put into their tractors is incredible. kubota, well taken care of will give you years of trouble free service.
    Thanks,

    Ditto. CC/Yanmar here and trouble free for 18 months. I only shopped those built in Japan, and assembled here. Lots to choose from. Enjoy the process

    I'm 2nd owner of a kubota BX24 (2007).
    Great machine. Now has just over 300 hours.
    No regrets.

    Thanks
    No, that would be john deere, but not a lot more expensive. Honestly its not like a car. You don't spend thousands of dollars on it every few years as long as you keep clean fluids in it.

    I don't believe there is a "better built" tractor than kubota in that size and parts are in line with others; other makes are in my opinion are often as good and you will not be spending much on parts for any if you don't abuse them and service regularly.

    I've got 29 years of trouble free service out of a kubota B6200. Just replaced my water pump for the first time.
