This tractor bought with @200 hr on it from a Kubota dealer. Lower ram packin' started leakin' in @ 20 hrs. Dealer would not take care of it. Had rebuilt, lasted @80 hr and ram snapped in half.
Dealer would not fix under any warranty and or customer satisfaction. Had new ram put on, shop showed me were ram was previously cracked /rusted at surface crack.
Also showed me that entire bucket/lift system is off by @ 2" when sitting on level ground. Asked dealer again to do warranty and correct system---"no".
At @ 600hr. started to have to continually adjust clutch, now at 956 hr needs clutch now. Have never had a clutch go out on any of our tractors over the yrs. some with 4000 plus hrs. No dealer should sell this kind of equipment . Must have been leased and beaten up before they sold it to me. Very disappointed with local dealer and Kubota in general. This model is 60 hp too small for cat 2 emplacement , too large for cat 1. Not a good way to go.
