    I am also very happy with my 254, do more with mine then the guys with name brand around me. Course I have no bragging rights, because I bought one them thar junkers!!!! Had it over 4yrs now and I cry everytime I think of what I payed compared to my neighbors, tears of joy that is . Heck the NH up the road ended up having to have a complete rear end rebuild less 1yr old. Must have been a friday or monday machine, they said that some things{inside} were loose from the factory . I quess any machine can have issue's, they're only as good as the folks putting them together.

    Bought my 204 over 6 years ago. Over 600 hrs. and still running like a clock! Loader has saved me countless hours of work. If I purchased a name brand, I'd still have 600+ hours but I would be reeeal nervous hearing any "new" noise, knowing the repair costs would be quite high! I feel pretty confident about performing most repairs myself. Even a new engine for these are pretty reasonable.

    two friends got new Kubotas, one has had the front end come apart 6 times the othere two times , something about a snap ring in side brakes and you lose all the gear lube and then the front wheel falls off , they paid about two times what i did for my tractor, they use to call my tractor china junk , its funny , he had a flat tire one time took the tire off the rim , it was marked china , boy that was funny, they dont say much about my tractor anymore .

    Went out and plowed snow with mine today. 10 deg. Real cold for us here in TN. She started up easy after about 15 minutes of trying. No heater at all.

    Well, maybe read this first http://www.tractorbynet.com/forums/c...ater-died.html and then decide whether or not you still might want to buy one.

    It stinks guys are having troubles with the Kats heater. Mine is 5 year old or so and not one hiccup. You guys may try Napa. For 200 series Jinma tractors you need a 1.5" heater. I think Napa has a different brand but its a little more money.

    I just wonder if Kats did not cheapen things up a bit in this tough economy?
