This has been a great little tractor for me. I bought it used. There has always been a problem with the hydraulic oil heating up with extended use or in hot weather, but I have just shut it down and let it cool. I know of another tractor of the same model that had the same problem and they just kept going when the hydraulic oil temp light came on. No help from Kubota. This year had lever that controls bypass to keep 3pt hitch from lifting too high break off.
Kubota wanted $475.00 dollars for a 4 inch lever and a 10 inch turn buckle. Great Service department head at local dealer found similar parts for other newer models much cheaper and made them work. Many of the parts for this model are no longer available from Kubota for this 20 year old tractor. The price of Kubota mower blades are twice the cost of John Deere blades that are the same size and style. I will never buy another Kubota product.
