    As you know, we are having problems with Bobcat, funnily enough Bobcat belongs to the South Koreans!
    It would seem Yankeeland is selling their heritage too!

    Thought they were painting and renaming their farm machinery this year under the orange and Kubota range.

    Will Kubota tractors ever become mainstream?

    Dohhhhhh
    I was centering on the Big Sellers here in the UK.
    Mazda is more for the thinking owner in the UK rather than the mass market

    Re: Kubota takes over Great plains

    I run a Kubota, love it. Only tractor on my farm & averaged 100hrs/month for 18 months now. The only complaints I have are the latch on the pick up hitch sometimes locked when new & the back window is badly designed from a rain point of view. The drips go into the cab, but keep window shut & problem solved!! Rate it far higher than my previous tractors that I was swapping every couple of years. Just lot of snobbery about these things but no-one can charge anymore for doing jobs with a Fendt than with a Kubota & the cost of buying the latter is far more attractive!!
