    Dpes anyone think kubota parts are way expensive?

    Before I bought my bota I price3d the two gears that are in each bevel gear front axle. $750 for one, $250 for the other.

    Everything is relative. Before choosing between an L3010 and a JD4300 I priced five replacement parts and found JD about 30% higher than kubota. Of course I priced parts more likely to break than the bevel gears. [img]/w3tcompact/icons/wink.gif[/img]

    Here's your answer, Rat. Just picture yourself in the L48 with Sophia Loren in the oyster seat next to you.

    <font color=blue>1979 CORVETTE L-48, Automatic Transmission COR799/8RJA, Overall condition is excellent. #'s match. PS, PB, Power windows, Factory aluminum wheels, New oyster seat covers, new steering wheel, A/C (not working) Present owner 14 years. Owner bought new Corvette and needs to sell. This is a nice unrestored 79 Corvette.. Detailed information available.
    Priced to sell at $6200</font color=blue>

    No -n mot in comparison to Daihatsu - I have 2 Rocky 4X4.
    kubota's spare parts prices in Australia are reasonable and they are able to supply in a timely fashion.

    YES!! This seems to be a common tactic among Japanese manufacturers...make a product (albeit, a good one) for a reasonable price, then gouge like crazy on maintenance and repair parts.

    Japanese motorcycles are similar. Carburetor diaphragms on an '82 Honda--$69 apiece, and it takes four. Side cover gasket--$14. Turn signal flasher--$42.
