Just bought this 2006 Kubota L2800 week before last. So far so good! Have not used it much though. I also bought a new model 500 Howser mower. I just attached it to the three point hitch last Monday just to practice. Still have not finished the final installation.
The tractor seemed to be able to handle the 5' mower well, although I felt that it needs a little weight in the front.
