After having full size tractor with loader I don't think I would ever be happy with one of those little ones.  Just can't do enough with them according to what I am used to.  Renting is a lot cheaper than buying for me.  Kubota's are a nice unit and have a ton of nice attachments if one has the use for them.

I have 145hp tractors, and had a Cat 910 articulated wheel loader, and still have an old Hough loader with an 8' bucket.  But this small Kubota gets where I can't with larger machines, and can do work without tearing up ground like a larger outfit.  Every size machine has it's place to shine.

I agree Daniel, I was going to go farm tractor size but like I said everything needs so much work and $$$$ and I was just not up for that... And as long as I don't have many problems this should last me a very,very long time!!!

   My little Sears 18/6 with loader has been used more since I got it than the 8N loader. For what I do mostly it is much more handy. The 8N will carry a ton but I seldom need to do that and when I do it is near impossible to steer. The 8N was much faster than the Bobcat and the Bobcat really tears up the ground. It is also hard to get into and out of and near impossible with the bucket up. So with the Bobcat hand loading of the bucket requires a helper.  So that one seldom gets used. Each machine has its advantage and disadvantage. I am sure that any one I got rid of would be missed some times.  Don

Well I finally got the new to me Kubota out today to bring in a couple loads of wood in to my basement and it ran fine but it does need rear wheel weight. Going to make a few phone calls and find me some beat juice...20180114_164221.jpg 20180114_164247.jpg
