    I really like Land Pride implements. I have a 5' brush hog and 7' rear blade and the quality is top notch. It's unfortunate the profits will be going overseas instead of remaining in the US. Let's hope the US employees aren't negatively impacted and product quality isn't compromised.

    I heard that a couple weeks ago on another forum. Yesterday I was at a Kubota dealership and asked for the heck of it. He said last he had heard July 1st Kubota takes over. They had just received a semi load of Land Pride equipment that will be the last with their name on it. He also said he talked to driver and was told after July 1st everyone would keep their job but the paycheck will be signed by Kubota. I happen to like the looks of the Land Pride quick hitch so I figured I had better run out and get one before they were gone.

    Wondering if they will only use orange paint now. Most of the stuff is orange now but they did have tan/yellow and even a few things available in green.

    in general I think its a wise move for a tractor co. to have or produce implements. They go hand in hand.
    Now if they are renaming the land pride stuff to kubota I don't think that's too wise.
    I wonder how many JD dealers are going to be willing to sell kubota implements to their customers.
    Why would JD want to sell its competitors stuff?
    How many JD owners are going to go to a Kubota dealer to look at Kubota implements?
    Best if Kubota owns Land Pride and keeps the name. Still JD may not want its dealers selling a competitors equipment.

    So many brand names are owned by god knows what parent company that you really don't know who you are buying from.

    My understanding is that Kubota is going to keep the Landpride brand name.

    I could see them dropping the green color, and keeping the tan color for those that don't like the orange.

    Really makes no difference to me as long as the quality is still there.
