I really am preparing to buy a SCUT, most-likely a JD 1025R or Kubota BX23S.
I've also followed the RK24 and other makes, but when the reviewer/user is provided the equipment at no cost, I find I'm very skeptical of their comments. (Yes, they can tell you that they are honest, and are not just endorsing for the freebies, but that's hard to believe).
Why would they point out troubles, and lose their free ride/equipment, plus their risk of losing their YouTube revenue? This is not only true of the tractors and attatchments, but also such other "provided" equipment like chainsaws, log splitters, power tools, trailers, etc. I just wonder what others think.
Likewise, when someone has spent the $$$$ to buy a certain brand, they sure don't wanna admit they should have bought another brand, and bad-mouth other brands to justify their purchases, too.
Am I too skeptical? If I could find local owners, I'd probably trust THEIR reviews/comments more than an endorsed/funded/provided reviewer on YouTube.
I'm just a small acreage suburban "farmer", looking for HONEST opinions before I plunk down $20K+ for a SCUT and a couple of attatchments.
thanks in advance
