Kubota product is from a farm tractor to a ATV. I own a Kubota L2800DT tractor.

Old thread but I just bought home a new Kubota L3901HST with a LA525 front end loader and a Land Pride PD25 (a Kubota company) post hole digger. Seems to be a pretty solid equipment for the money.

People have dropped tiny Kubota diesels into compact cars and had some pretty incredible fuel economy. They're noisy and rattly, but pretty efficient.

I've owned a diesel Kubota B6200D 4WD Garden Tractor for over 30 years. I've got a snow plow blade, mowers, diggers, etc for it as well. This tractor will easily be running when the world decides to stop using diesel.

I plan to continue using one of our Ford 8n farm tractors to shred our short grass pastures but I needed something with a bit more lifting capacity than what a Ford 8n can lift with its traditional 3-cylinder loader.

The 4x4 and power steering on the Kubota will also be a plus when using the loader. Ford only built the N-series tractors in 2WD and absolutely no power steering.

I don't know why Ford got out of farm machinery, essentially tractors. By all accounts, they were a big player. Love their mini tractors. Very cute. Yes, small tractors are still made but the old ones actually looked like miniature tractors.

New Holland is the continuation of the Ford line...

Ford the man had farming in his blood and saw great opportunity/future in farm mechanization.

Maybe they were too well built... a 65 year old Ford tractor is still very cabable and well built...
