Blue tractor in the background is my New Holland T4.75. At wat the noise level in the cab is 72 decibels according to my meter. This unit has a 12 X 12 transmission with shuttle shift.
Orange tractor is my Kubota 2650 with HST. At wat, not even moving, the hydraulic whine is at 90 decibels which will cause permanent damage to hearing after just 30 minutes. I hate the noise it makes!
The Kubota 2650 is just about the smallest tractor on the market with cab and AC, their best seller now, and back ordered in most markets. I bought mine sight unseen since there were none to be test driven in the area and wish I had not. The noise even with ear muffs on is loud and makes the radio useless. Great tractor but the noise sucks......
