I just picked this up the other day, for only $2200 It's a 1994/1995 Kubota L2000, 20hp 3 cylinder diesel, 2 wheel drive, less then 1200 hours. Included was a Leon 400 loader with 4' bucket, 5' Woods Finish Mower, A.T.L.A.S box blade and two brand new turf tires mounted on rims.

The tractor was just repainted and everything works great and it starts right up every time.

I have hauled and spread a lot of dirt with it already i can't wait for the grass to grow so i can test out the mower!.

Does this count as a garden tractor? or is it two big? Ether way i love it and i don't know how i lived before i got it lol

That is a really good question.  I'm afraid I can't answer it without trying it out myself.  If you'll pop it on a trailer and come on over to the east coast, I'll give it a thorough evaluation, but you'll have to leave it for a year. :rolling:

Well, even if it doesn't, there is a section for "compact and utility tractors" so it would qualify as one of those!

 

My personal opinion is that it would be more of a CUT than a GT, but thats just me......

 

As long as it does the job for you and you enjoy it, more's the better!

 

Many of the guys on here have both (myself included) CUTs or even bigger tractors and GTs as well.

I just happy for you. That sounds like a nice complete package you have there. An all-year-round tractor.

It would fit into the SCUT (sub compact utility tractor) category.  It is welcome here at GTT just the same.  We have a compact & farm tractor category, but you can post in the GT "Kubota" section if you wish.  It being a sub compact brings it right almost with a super GT.

I agree it falls in that CUT/Scut range It would compare closely to my 1500 Ford. Like has been said it is a welcome addition to the mix and I for one would be interested in hearing more about it.

I can not find a lot of specs on the l2000. generally the L series is built a little heavier than the B series.
You got a very nice package ,with all the implements and two sets of rears and loader for about $1000 less than I paid. OUTSTANDING DEAL!

Best of luck with it!

That's a great deal on a Kubota.  In my area, that tractor would have sold for closer to 5, probably attachments extra.  I guess because it wasn't FWD brought the price down. 

 

Kubota makes some good quality machines today, but I prefer models like what you found.  Those models are very simple to work on without complicated switches and hydraulics. 

 

What a good haul!
