I do not like and never have liked the JD I match system. All it does is require you to buy JD accessories.

Hey Everyone, this is my first post on the forums. I’ve been on this site for last year or so but haven’t joined until now. I have 5.5 acres that is heavily wooded in western oregon with some slopes and a long gravel driveway. I grew up with JD’s and know they can handle about anything and go the distance. As you see in my title I “canceled my kubota order” I originally had my heart set on a new kubota LX2610. I am fortunate to have strong dealer support around me from both JD and Kubota. To make a long story short kubota is having loader shortages which are supposedly made in Georgia. 8000 some loaders on back order across us dealers for certain models. So my wait just kept going on and on. I have always like JD but always thought the price was always a bit high. I decided to stop in at a dealer the other day as it looked like they had inventory. They did I ended up really liking the 3032e. I do like how the ergonomics are for the JD’s only wish they would add the tilt steering in this model. I’m pretty excited they are a great looking tractor! And all in all the dealer took care of me I ended up with a bigger tractor with more power bs what the Kubota would of been and only spent a couple thousand more. The tractor will be coming up my driveway in about a week! Thanks everyone and glad to be on the forums.
Do wish we had a 3032E or any 3 series JD tractor! Although, Kubota might be my 2nd choice.

I run Kubota's entirely because of my dealer and the relationship I have with them If I had that kind of relationship with the local JD dealer, I'd probably have green instead. In reality other than the fact I don't like JD's proprietary system or the fact that they closely guard their electronics, really makes no difference to me. We have a Branson dealer up town that I never give a second thought about because they don't build a unit large enough for my needs.

My Kubota GM/dealer gave me prices on both a new cabbed L4760 and a L5460. I accepted the offer on either if he can just find one. 10% off MSRP is what he quoted. I mentioned 4 years ago it was 15% off, he said with so few available to sell he can’t discount as much now. Understandable and I’m ok with it. They have 3 dealerships to draw from. Loader orders are backed up 9 months. Thankfully I can do without one for now. :)
