- Kubota B8200, then a Kubota L3130 HST, now a Kubota L3400 HST
My neighbor finally got around to replacing his old Deere tractor. He was interested in my Kubota L3130, but quickly decided it was too small for his needs. (well, his hired man's needs- this is gentleman landowner with hobby cattle, not a farmer). He got a new cabbed Deere 5055E recently, and in talking with his hired man, who uses it, I learned the cab's AC, which started out strong, is now not putting out cold air. A cab, in Maryland's summer climate, needs AC. Worse yet, the 3 point hitch hydraulics stopped working. I recommended they get a Kubota, but they didn't listen! Now, they're waiting for the dealer to get to it: farmer's first, as it should be.
