I had been shopping and comparing compact tractors and was sold on a Kubota. A friend had bought this Cub new to take care of rental properties. I bought the 7305 with 400plus hours. Not sure what year it was manufactured but I can say the new tractors aren't made nearly as heavy. In comparison to the Kubota, I would chose the Cub. The frame appears heavier the steering cylinders are behind the front axle.
I do have fluid in the rear tires. I use a 5.5 ft. box blade, 6ft. rake and a three point backhoe. I now have 500 plus hours.
