In process of purchasing a new I do heavy ROW mowing/clearing for pipeline company. Presently I operate 15' Batwings and have both TYM1003 and leased a kubota M100X this year. The M100X is a bit more than I need or want to pay for. However, I've had good luck with both tractors.

For this purchase I am considering either a Kubota 9960 or another TYM 1003. Looking for input on this comparison.

The TYM is heavier and the Perkins is a beast. But the Kubota's have a good reputation. The 9960 is a relatively new model. Anyone have experience with it?
