    I'm not seeing rusted or pitted sheet metal
    Suggest having another look. Are 'ya thinkin' those rusted hose clamps, engine block, exhaust manifold, muffler and tie rod ends are aluminum?

I'm 100% positive that kubota corp wouldn't sell a tractor as new that was flooded. I doubt that they would even allow it to be sold period. Now there could be dealers out there looking to make a quick buck trying to pass off a "sinker" as new but I bet if they got caught Kubota (and every other mfg) would pull their dealership license asap.
    Oh I agree thats it illegal to do, but, it happens ALL the time. Damaged inventory is shipped across country, or in this case, a new country, and sold. Remember Toyota's damaged shipping containers a few years back? ALL the cars were systematically destroyed just to prevent something like this from happening. Not every company is that careful of their reputation. A simple goole of 'flood damaged vehicle sale' will be an eye opener.

    No... But I'm confused...
    What are you talking about.

    Is that your list of things that one would EXPECT to be rusty on a tractor?

    Because I would expect that every one of those parts to have some rust on them on anything except a tractor straight out of the factory (never been started) based upon the materials they are made from and intended use.

    Perhaps the tractor was loaned out before you got it.

    If you are that concerned by the minor, expected rust I suggest you return it immediately and start looking at John deere tractors,

    Our 2003 B7500 has less rust than that at 700+ hours and 10 years old.

    Thanks for reposting the pictures Aczlan, It's clear to anyone that knows the least bit about metal and corrosion, to see that there is now doubt that tractor was submerged in salt water, or suffered from some type of chemical spill(like acid or something).

    Just the hose clamps alone prove that point, not to mention the rusty cylinder head. Body parts could have been replaced easily by the dealer in an attempt to cover the damage.

    There are several pictures showing rust on the block/cylinder head, exhaust manifold, etc, etc, etc. The rust shown isn't the type that metal gets from simply being exposed to the elements....it looks more like acid, or salt corrosion. My 8N has spent most, if not all, of it's life outside, and it doesn't have anywhere near that amount of rust. In fact, the only thing that does is the exhaust manifold, and the muffler/tailpipe. Heck, I scrubbed the paint off the block to read the serial number a long time ago, and that spot still hasn't rusted!

    Wow that's jacked up. I bet the thing was either pulled behind a truck on a salty winter road (salt water spray) or exposed to ocean salt water or submerged in salt water.

    I would demand a new tractor!

    There's got to be more to this story. Bought from a "truckload sale", corrosion all over the tractor, which the purchaser amazingly failed to notice before accepting delivery, no pictures of the entire tractor... just extreme closeups.

    kubota Canada's limited warranty covers manufacturing defects... obviously all that corrosion wasn't a defect in manufacturing, and it expressly excludes:
    "2. Depreciation, damage, malfunction caused by
    normal wear, lack of reasonable and proper
    maintenance, improper servicing, failure to follow
    operating instructions, misuse, lack of proper
    protection during storage
    3. Depreciation or damage caused by accident...
    10. Damage resulting from a natural calamity beyond
    human control such as: fire, flood, etc."

    Has the OP been back on here since he posted this ? There definitely has to be a lot more to the story of this tractor.
    It would be nice to get the whole story, before passing judgment. Maybe he bought it as is, for 75% off. Again, it would be nice to get the whole story, and see what he actually paid for it, and with what conditions. Until he responds with a lot more info, it,s hard to believe kubota would let that unit go out the door in that condition.
