since almost every GT with diesel seems to be powered with a kubota, I'm wondering what people think about these motors, I want one.

I have heard that they are an exellent motor.

A lot of GT's also ran a Yanmar which is another exellent engine

These guys are running Kubotas and Yanmars, but they are highly modded

My friend has a Kubota gray market tractor with loader. I think its a 25hp. 4 wd. Its a great tractor. He's moving across state to a house w/ very little yard. If I didn't have the unit I do, I would buy it. I think he wanted $5,600. It will make someone a really nice unit. You wont go wrong if you get one.

Great motors! Kubota diesel engines will run forever if you take care of them. Use's very little fuel. Keep radiator clean and motor cool, as they won't stand being overheated to many times before it can crack a cylinder head or blow a head gkt. Otherwise their bullet proof.
