    Kubota L4600

    Default Kubota L4600

    Does anybody know if they are going to discontinue the L4600. And if so would it still a good idea to buy a new one ?

    Question #1: Don't know.
    Question #2: No reason to be skittish about a current model of a major brand. Even brands that are re-badging tractors made by others provide parts support. kubota makes its own stuff (engines, trannys, chassis, etc.) and you can still order essential parts for the very early Kubotas sold in the 1970's, more than 40 years ago, because there are lots of them still in use today. L4600 is kind of unique because it's assembled at a Kubota plant in Thailand... their other models are assembled in the US or Japan... don't know if that would make any difference to you. Otherwise, if that model is suitable for your needs and you like it, best of luck shopping!

    The L4600 is a Very good tractor. It replaced the L4400 a couple years ago. B&L has a 4400 and loves it!

    I went to look at one a year and a half ago, but dealer was sold out. Came home with a L3800DT, deal was too good to pass on.

    I have an L4400 which was replaced by the L4600. My L4400 has never let me down. Easy to maintain and use.

    likely will be replaced this year due to emissions changes.
