"This is just a remarkable little tractor.
I have used the loader/bucket, rear blade, 4-foot brush cutter and 72-inch belly mower on our property and the neighbor lady's. I went with the 4' brush cutter due to the valleys on our property and feel like it was a good choice. The 72" belly mower cuts beautifully without scalping even though I've used it on some pretty rough ground.
It has plenty of power, and good response on the controls. I was lucky to find a low hour pre-tier-4 model on the market."

"This tractor has served me well so far. I've done just about everything with it from mowing to digging to hauling. Its runs like a top, even in the cold winter months - don't have to even plug it in!
I've only had two issues - both with the front end loader. At 100 hrs the main control valve went out. Dealer(typical crooks)said $1300 to fix it! Kubota stepped in and did if for free. The other was a hydro line on the FEL - $40 fix at the local NAPA - no big deal. "

"Great machine. It is the perfect size to get around the woods with for firewood. Could use a little more power in the bucket lift dept., but probably trying to do more than I should with that size machine.
The only problem is that it is sometimes difficult to get into rear differential lock but I might not be doing it right (not sure how fast the tractor should be moving to put it in lock).
Starts right up in 10 below weather. They are the only company that manufactures all their own parts. The seat does seem to slant down slightly so I have to keep pushing myself back. The lock for loader is hard to get in but rarely use it."
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Great power to size ratio.Cons: Wish you could reverse the wheel to give another 2" in width for stability.Type of User: Homeowner 10-50 AcresLocation: USA NYI also considered buying: REVIEWER'S PHOTOS

So Far So Good

"It's really too soon to write a review but I will as the site prompted it. I've only had my B3200 a little bit and got it sooner than I planned due to the failure of another piece of equipment. My dealer was excellent and accommodating. I got my machine delivered about 26 hours after making the phone call to the salesman I had been talking with.
The machine is over kill for my uses at the moment. My needs are snow removal and the maintenance of a gravel road, and large garden prep and a bit of firewood. Typical rural residence stuff.
The feel and the steering are outstanding. No shortage of power.
My minor complaints I listed in the Cons are the lighted gauges don't really illuminate the needles, you may or may not see where the needles are at if they happen to hover over a well lighted portion of the gauge. If not you have to stare and try to find it.
The other issue I was advised about before I bought and the salesman's statement is quite true. The R4's don't have much traction when you have snow over the top of ice. Well we had a lot of that to deal with on day one getting used to the machine. Next year I'll have some chains on it. The 504 FEL works well but ideally I'll also have a blower."
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Smooth, good power, great power steering.Cons: Can't see gauge needles at night despite gauge lights, would have been nice to have the needles light up. R4's traction issues.Type of User: Homeowner 10-50 AcresLocation: USA NYI also considered buying: Kubota B2620, Kubota B2920 REVIEWER'S PHOTOS

"Bought it for the wife since she does most of the yard work. Our existing riding mower (28 year old Simplicity) was just not up to doing everything we needed it to do and finally died. Made a list of everything we wanted to be able to do and took it to all the local dealers (Green, Red, etc.) and the Kubota came out on top.
Have used it for mowing, moving hay, brush and junk as well. No problems, really easy to use and now she rarely lets me help with the mowing. Maybe I'll have to get one for myself."
