    Default Want to Upgrade B21 to B26 - Selling B21 430Hrs

    Hi guys,

    I want (vs need) to upgrade my B21 to the B26, and now its a matter of selling my B21 - which is in excellent condition running and operation.

    I have owned B21 since new- did fluids and filters at 50 and 300 hrs. Unit has always been stored inside and has no issues. Its clean and ready to move to a new place.

    It's on CraigsList for $17,500 and I have gotten the low ball offers and tons of questions and several interested parties asking lots of questions but no sale yet. Anyway I want to sell - anybody looking for a lightly used B21 in great shape? I can send video's and more pictures as needed.

    Looking to get $16.5K range - yes I know others are out there with 1800-2600 hrs for $12K but this unit has 430 hrs and is in great shape and I will just keep mine if this isnt meant to be.

    Thanks for looking,

    Carl

    Cowpatty,

    The thumb is working excellent now - when i first got the thumb in 2009 it was Cat 1 hitch 3/4" pins and I used my existing lift link which I bent so contacted Richard @ Brotek and he upgrade everything to a CAT 2 setup.

    Richard @ Brotek was great to deal with - I sent him the plates back and in return he sent me the CAT 2 1" connecting arm, new pins, and new thumb for $110.

    Of course I would love to get the Hyd thumb on the B26!

    Carl

    Thanks Ductape!

    I put about 40 hrs a year on average only on weekends, and usually I blow it off or hose it down after working, then it lives inside the barn all week. Its not this clean all the time - a few weeks ago I did do the grease cleanup when I put the BH on after the winter.

    This is my 22 y/o Cub Cadet. As my dad taught me - keep machines inside like tractors/wagons grain drills and clean em up once in a while and they will last a long time. I was the one that had to clean the corn planter, grain drill as the fertilizer would eat the insides up.

    Hey Carl, after seeing pictures of the B26 you want to buy, makes me sorry I sent the advice on selling yours. I like it a lot and not wishing you bad luck or nothin' but I sure would like to see you keep your B21 and then I could buy that B26.

    Well guys, Carl and I had an agreement that if he couldnt sell his B21 in a specific time for the needed amount that he would relinquish his hold on the B26. Well the sell didnt come in time so I am now the next in line to purchase the almost new B26. I can hardly wait to get back home so I can go get it. Thanks to Andy (missingtexas) he is willing to hold on to it and not take other offers. You dont find a person like that in life very often and I just want to recognize him as one of those very rare, super honest individuals that are so hard to find these days.
    I also want to thank Carl for informing me of this B26 as I would never have found it without him. Even though Carl would love to have a B26, his B21 really is a nice TLB and does everything he needs to do as it would have done for me(I was looking for a B21 when Carl let me know about this one), so now I think we have a win/win for all concerned. Carl still has a good TLB, I will be getting a good TLB and Andy will be getting rid of a little used TLB for quiet a bit more money than the local dealer offered so he wins also. The only loser is the kubota dealer in my mind.

    Thanks Gary,

    Thats the way things go, and as much as I wanted the B26 it wasnt meant for me - I really think it prefers the warmer weather and didnt want to come this far north.

    I know this will serve you well and for many years. My wife is happy too - me not so much but I have a tractor and a happy wife so life is good.

    Thanks again to Andy for enduring the questions and pictures and all.

    This is a great forum. Oh does that mean i need to delete this posting? haha..

    Sorry it didn't work out for you Carl, I think you're right, this machine wouldn't know what to do if it had to deal with temperatures like it'd have to see up there in your neck of the woods. We had 2 periods this winter below freezing that lasted more than 10 hours, and I've been cutting grass since late February. At least the mosquitos are healthy this year as we're out of the drought conditions of last year. Our normal rainfall amounts are around 72" per year and last year we had just over 35", this year we're about 15" above normal. Looks like I'll be in the market for a used CUT with a FEL in a month or two so you gents keep your ears open
