This is my first tractor. I have 16 acres, 10 of which are wooded. I was looking for a machine that was easy to operate and not too big, so my wife could use it. A new Kubota was over 15k; I bought this one for $6,700. I immediately had it serviced by my local Kubota dealer and the machine is running strong.
It has a FEL and I purchased a Befco 42" rotary mower, which is perfect for hitting high brush or cutting trails through the woods. Really enjoying it so far.
