Slow Boat from China Posted by booger1 on 02/02/2013

Bought this unit w/ROP, Jinma FEL & ZL20 backhoe, local 5' box blade, utility & finish mowers & 9" post hole digger. Don't think I can really complain about this unit. Used backhoe some commercially, worked it pretty hard so most of the issues were related to that. Lots of mowing. Just had all the FEL cylinders rebuilt, yet to replace hyd. hoses. New starter, diesels don't like the cold. New gas cock/bowl---normal stuff.

Dealer experience not applicable. I ordered this unit from outfit in Oregon that has since gotten out of business. Unit was drop-shipped to me FOB in three crates, picked up by me @ designated location & assembled by me so basically no dealer involvement. Paid about 1/2 the price of a dealer Kubota, of course no service & only parts warranty. Reinforced belly mount backhoe frame myself, two pins & two bolts on/off. Built some bolt on forks for the FEL; comes in mighty handy. These units have had several upgrades since I bought mine. Been a good unit. No complaints.
