Does anybody know much about these? There is one for sale not far from me, it is MFWD, with duals, cab, 5900 hrs, 3 remotes, 71 hp/66 PTO. It is a super, super clean tractor of 80's vintage and asking $8200, 12 gear synchro transmission. Immaculate inside and out.
I don't know anything about the older Kubotas. It's good on fuel and has small footprint, but doesn't seem to be a lot of info on this tractor out there. I would like to get a second tractor because my acreage is expanding and I'd like a cab so my little one can safely ride along with me. I have so many memories riding in the cab with my grandparents so I'd like to give her that memory with her dad.
My concerns are controls on both sides of the seat though so not sure how well it would work for a rider, and what is most offputting to me is 11 gpm hydraulic pump, as I'd potentially like to put a loader on it if I ever wanted to go to a grapple. I also don't know anything about parts availability of the older Kubotas. But I don't put a lot of hours on a tractor nor do they get worked very hard.
I only square bale and use a haybine, no high hp requirements with equipment and wouldn't need duals. My main motivator in this case was quality/condition of the tractor for the price and close by. I am afraid to tell my wife I found a tractor I'm interested in.
