    I think these tractors come in a crate that is covered in plastic. I saw a load of bx's on a open trailer one day.

    That's one of the reasons I was pleased to learn that LS ships their tractors in enclosed trailers....mine was delivered in January

    You advised you called Kubota Canada so I am assuming you live in Canada. Does the area you live have consumer protection? If so, I would contact them and seek their assistance in investigating your being sold a "Flood Damaged" Tractor as a new unit by Kubota. I would also send Kubota Canada copies of the photos you posted and advise them that you have requested an investigation by Canadian Authorities into your being sold a "Flood Damaged" Tractor as a "New" unit by Kubota.

    A lot of the "Sandy" flood damaged vehicles, cars, trucks and tractors are starting to enter the sales pipe line. From the photos you posted I am sorry to say sure looks like one.

    It's salt damage from transport, or from sitting beside a roadway in the winter. I would not accept that machine.

    Lots of unanswered questions here. We need to hear from the OP.

    I agree- we need more from the OP. I looked back and this was the individual asking about a 'kubota Truckload sale' a few weeks ago ... I wonder if the 2 posts are related somehow?

    I guess we know why the machine was on sale.

    In Ontario you have a 10 day contract cancellation law. You have to inform them in writing. Get on it.

    To me, that's also 2 strikes with the dealer. One, to sell the tractor like that....UNLESS there was a serious discount. And full disclosure why it looked like that. Second strike was to wirewheel some metal, and spray oil on it?? Really??
    As others have said, there much more to the story here than we know. Need more info from the OP.
    And to say that's acceptable....? I think not. It's got issues now as a new machine, think of what will happen at time goes on.....and when the warranty ends...

    Unless the OP knew about the corrosion and the purchase price was signifigantly reduced, I would get rid of that thing ASAP.

    In my opinion, this corrosion everywhere is not just the result of salt spray, because so many areas are corroded that would be under cover. I believe the tractor was under water. And maybe storm surge salt water. I can't imagine the electrical problems that will be developing soon. Yeah, time to unload that one if at all possible.
