- 2009 Kubota BX25
So, I stopped at the Kubota dealer this morning. They had an L3901 on the lot and it looks about like what I would want. Very simple tractor. Maybe simple is a good thing in tractors. For a lot less bucks than a JD 3039R, I would have the same horsepower, but some lesser features I guess. Not sure i would miss them. The Kubota Dealer is mostly a tool rental dealer but has a Kubota and a Bobcat dealership on the side. The guy I talked to was very nice and helpful, but I don't know how dependable the dealership will be for service, etc. Still, he seemed like he was earnestly interested in my business and willing to work with me. I asked if Kubotas came in some other color than orange - which will clash with my red barn - no dice So, one negative. GregE, what is MMM? I am not good with tractor acronyms yet. Do you think you would like the extra horse power in 3039? Can someone tell me the difference between the JD 3E and 3R series? I'm also trying to figure out the + and -'s of hydrostatic or "PowrReverser 12F/12R" transmissions as well. Both makes come with both types of transmissions. Looks like Bobcat is out of the small utility tractor business. So, it is Big Green vs Orange.
Musdalen, remember that these tractors are so reliable that you will almost never be seeing the dealer anyway, unless you want to go and get some new implements fitted or perhaps have him or her do your fluid changes for you.
