Why Kubota over others?

As mentioned convenience plays a lot into it. Especially with the bigger ag tractors. My dealer will send in a parts guy after hrs to keep you going. The numbers on the website. Not all dealers have that kind of support. Yes, the bigger ones obviously spend more in advertising which we all pay for but sometimes it's truly a situation where you get what you pay for

Hey Brett!

I'll do you a favor and trade you trucks, just put a class 5 receiver on the old girl and ordered a class 5 ball mount and 2 5/16 ball, total is good for 16k lbs .

What do you say? I'll tell you what, I will Finnish wiring up the trailer 4 & 7 pin combo trailer hook up and the trailer brake controller before the trade, how's that?

Well that's a heck of an offer! However, I'd hate for you to miss out breaking in that new hitch and ball which look plenty stout enough! Besides, my junk is already getting worn out with 5k miles and is filthy!

You would be the one to come out ahead in that deal, I would be doing you a favor on a straight up trade.

And that receiver was $38 more expensive than the class 4 I was after so I said what the heck I'll splurge, should be no reason my tractor isn't safely trailered now.

Good information. I waited 7 years to buy a new tractor. I got by with an old John Deere 1520 and it was great. I put hundreds of hours on it and got $1000 more than I paid after 7 years (I did do a lot of maintenance on it). I shopped all over the country and purchased a Case 75c. So far I have 70 hours on it and it has been great. I live in a small town in Montana and the only two dealers are Case and John Deere. I was important for me to have local support. I love John Deere, but they couldn't even come close on price, and I'm talking 10's of thousands of dollars. I'm surprised I don't see/hear more interest in Farmall's, but it is working great for me. Kubota would have been a serious contender for me, but the closest dealer is over 100 miles away. I have to say that as far as the cab/operator station is concerned my Case is significately nicer than any of the tractors I looked at. Best of luck to you, I will say that new is really nice.

I much prefer the case over the NH, that red and gray looks sharp. What Deere models were you comparing against? 5075 or 5085 and up?

Danisiri, when you are buying a tractor you want one that is comfortable. There are subtle differences between makes, so some tractors will fit you better than another make. Another major factor is the dealer( respectful reliable and has parts on hand). Lastly there is tractor reliability.
Kubota have put all 3 together very well, better than most.

Yeah, I think I am leaning towards Kubota. The cost is about the same as the other big names, plus the majority of online reviews are positive.

Biggest differences we found when shopping was weight, ergonomics and when I was borrowing a tractor before mine came in I needed a basic part. It was going to take several days to come in as they didn't stock it. Come to find out, they don't stock nearly the parts that Deere does. If you can have your tractor down for a couple days worst case and it not put you in a bind than that makes it easier to choose

Yes, I wasn't real interested in the JD 5075E, it was more money but about 1200 lbs lighter (@ 20%). The 5085e is great but the best I could do would have been 25K more and I liked the case just as much. It is a perfect size for me as I mostly do work tilling in my shelter belts. Ironically we did a bunch of work with a NH TN 75 yesterday. I do like the red better, but other than that they are basically the same. I didn't look at the Case 65 C so I'm not sure how it would compare to the M7060. If you have a dealer close it would be worth a look. The orange sure looks cool though.

Heh...my LS has been down for three weeks now, lol, as they try to track down a regen/limp mode issue.

The Kubota dealer here in town is not the most friendly one...either straight rude or at best not caring if we buy or not. The NH dealer has much better customer service, but I'm not sold on their tractors. The Deere dealer has very poor communication.
