My uncle just bought a Kubota B2601. I haven't had any seat time on it, but seems to be a quality machine. He was going back and forth between this and 1025, ended up with a better deal from Kubota.Personally, in the compact class, I'd buy a Kubota without reservation if it fit what I needed at the time, they have a few models that are really nice with great features-a few (B2301 and B2601 in particular) rival the JD equivalents in many aspects. The other three you mentioned wouldn't ever be on my radar having seen them up close.
If you don't need a BH the BX would be fine, but I DO NOT see an advantage in price. Unless these back yard dealers are slashing to the bone, which I cannot imagine. The B are certainly on par. I will stick with Deere. Funny just looked again last evening.....:banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead:I'm just curious as to what the general opinions are of the various makes of compact tractors today, besides Deere. I'm looking at Massey-Ferguson, New Holland, Kubota, and Kioti as other options in this category. Thanks.
I had the same problem. The good news is there is an easy fix for the seat switch. Granted, it requires a few months to "take effect" but once complete you'll have no more switch problems.the switch in the seat keeps freezing up and I have to beat on it to get it to unfreeze(dealer said if it breaks under warranty they will replace it
Last I knew you could buy a BH for a BX. Granted I haven't checked in a few years. As for the OP, you should also check on the Yanmar if you want to look at different makes. The Yanmar, JD, Massy, Kubota and Ford are all good tractor with their own faults. It comes down to the buyer's preference. What do you like and what don't you like. Get the one that has a dealer that will always be there and give good service and the tractor that has the most things you like and the least you don't like. Yes my 1026R had a few things I didn't like, RIO, seat shut-off switch were the 2 main ones. Disconnected both, no more problem. As for the little things, all tractors will have them and I know how to fix them. My tractor went to the dealer twice because it was under warranty. Since it's not under warranty it hasn't been back to the dealer. The 2210 I had previous was at the dealer twice in the 10 years I had it. So far I'm on par. Good luck in your decision.On the site you seemingly could not order a BX With a backhoe. B series yes, BX series no.
