    It's rebranded Vicon, at least that's what the guys looking at there said that actually owned some Vicon equipment. I saw it in Moultrie at the Sunbelt Expo.

    Hay Tools | Kubota Tractor Corporation

    They bought Knerveland Group.

    KvernelandGroup Corporate site / Home - Kverneland Corporate

    It'll be interesting to see if they actually bring in some heavy duty equipment, the Vicon rakes and tedders are fairly lightweight stuff.

    Any modern vicon mowers we had were mechanically ok but frames and panels would crack and fall to pieces , built very light .

    They bought Knerveland Group which includes Vicon. You'll also see some of the same stuff sold under other OEM's as well. We've had some rakes and tedders under New Holland for awhile now. kubota is introducing the stuff under their own name slowly, it will probably take 5 years until everything is integrated. Its a change for many of the dealers who have not done these kind of products in the past.


    I don't get real excited about the few hay pieces for this year, but there are some really good products in the line elsewhere.

    Not to many tractor brands that don't already have there own line of hay equipment. The Kubota dealer I deal with only carries Kuhn, I bought my Vermeer baler and vicon cutter from the local NH dealer.Maybe there new brochures will have someone like Mahindra pulling them

    I don't know, but I'd speculate that it will probably end eventually.

    When kubota paints this Orange and gets them on the lot then maybe they'll have some hay equipment worth a serious look.
