My wife and I retired recently and found little parcel out in country (for our vegetable garden), with lots and lots of grass to mow (located in Enterprise, Alabama). We recently bought a Kubota B7300 with a belly mower to help with the chores. It has only 206 hours on the clock and appears to be in very good shape (paid $3800 -- found it on Craigslist). Only downside I have discovered so far is the front tires have some dry rot and I have learned these tires where custom made by Firestone for Kubota and have been discontinued. Guess this affects other small Kubotas such as the B-7100 as well. Still trying to find an acceptable substitute, but our Kubota has 4WD and I understand it is critical to replace the front tires with tires that are compatable with the ones in the rear (or your can damage the drivetrain). The front tires don't need to be replaced immediately, but I hope something turns up before they do. I expect I'll be stopping by this forum from time to time seeking advice and, if I have any advice to offer, I expect to do that to. I really appreciate the on-line communities where folks can gather and help each other out. Sure beats the days of old when it was nearly impossible to find and/or communicate with others having similar interests. Thanks to the folks who maintain this forum . . . and those who sponsor it!
