Priced a new 100 hp Kabota cab tractor. 1000 bucks per hp. Is it just me or are the prices out of reason?

Its a bad time to try to buy a tractor. Too much demand, insufficient supply. New or used.

At the fair this week the Kubota dealer had exactly one tractor over 100 HP. They also had a cash and financed price, which I'd never seen a difference on before.

WOW! Man have things changed since I bought my tractors; one in 2019 and one in 2020. I guess its the same as trying to buy a pickup in this market...or a house.

I am no longer going to bale my upland hills as I have decided to cut back on my baling time so I priced a 2022 15 foot rotary cutter with some nice options yesterday at my local JD dealership. I looked at the mid-series. List price was $31,000. Yikes! They will take between 15-20% off the list.

Regards, Mike

We are looking at a 15ft batwing - 1,000 PTO - Titan is high on the list.

Also considering a semi-mount 10ft which would be 540 pto and would fit our other tractors.

I haven’t priced new but the price of used has been climbing steeply in our area.

I bought a 15' titan in fall of 2019 it was $13000 for the heaviest one they built with all the options. I saw the salesman I bought it from a few weeks ago, told him how much I liked it and had only gotten to run it around 20 hours or so. He called me a day or so later and offered me 15 grand in cash they must be selling like hot cakes.

Costs trickle down to those with the funds to pay for services. Until people run out of money, costs will keep soaring.

I think the goal is everyone going broke.

I bought a new Kubota 125 once and thought it was a great deal over a used JD of the same size. 1300hrs into it now. Biggest mistake I've ever made purchasing equipment.
