Kubota Engines

It is a very natural question to ask if Kubota engines are reliable, as the reliability of a Kubota engine in a Kubota tractor or Kubota excavator is the key component of determining whether to buy one or not, for many people.

Kubota engines have a fairly solid reputation as being reliable, but it is very difficult to assess the reliability of a Kubota engine against the reliability of a tractor engine from another manufacturer.

The condition of a Kubota engine, assuming that you are buying a new Kubota tractor, will vary over time and will be dependent to a large extent on the operation and maintenance of the Kubota tractor, as well as the type of work that the Kubota tractor will be doing which will affect the wear and tear of the Kubota engine.

Kubota Engines

There are a number of factors that can affect the general operation and maintenance of a Kubota engine, which will effectively ensure its longevity and help promote a long-term reliability of the Kubota tractor that the Kubota engine is being used in.

When talking about maintenance of a Kubota engine, there are a number of important maintenance safety factors to be considered.

The level of stress that a Kubota engines is subjected to both in terms of work and how the Kubota tractor is being driven affect the stability and effective use of the Kubota engine.

Driving a Kubota tractor on different parts of land and road as well as subjecting it to different types of work are an inherent part of owning and using a Kubota tractor. The Kubota engine should be sufficiently robust to be accustomed to the type of work that is expected of it.

Given that a significant number of Kubota tractors and Kubota agricultural pieces of machinery are used in a commercial or business setting, reliability of Kubota engines is an important issue.

If a Kubota tractor is out of use because of some ffault with a Kubota engine, it potentially represents a loss of income for the owner of the Kubota engine tractor. I

f the Kubota engine on a Kubota tractor excavator is unreliable or will not work effectively, there can also be a number of practical problems about how the Kubota tractor can be repaired or serviced or maintained.

If the Kubota engine needs to be taken back to the Kubota dealer where the tractor was bought from, this can obviously present a number of practical difficulties.

Issues such as this can be raised in advance of purchase Kubota engine tractor, and used with some degree of leverage with regard to these issues from the Kubota dealer.

Kubota Skid Steer Loaders Guide

A Kubota skid steer is an incredibly powerful, yet easily manoeuvrable, piece of agricultural machinery, that can be used with a wide range of attachments to perform numerous industrial and agricultural work, on commercial lands, job sites or farms.

The skid steer is a four-wheel-drive vehicle, with lift arms immediately beside the driver’s cab, with the pivotal points being situated behind the driver’s shoulder.

Kubota have engineered a vehicle with a number of factors in mind.

The Kubota Skid Steer has an outstanding level of performance when compared with other manufacturers and models, a design of both engine and cab which makes maintenance will be simple to perform, and all routine checks  easy to perform.

It has also put much thought into the comfort and durability of the cab itself, as this is not only a major safety feature, but is also a practical reality of the operative performing the work.

Kubota Skid Steer for Sale +Kubota Skid Steer Specs

Kubota currently has two models for sale, the Kubota SSV65 and the Kubota SSV75. Both have different specs and prices as detailed below, and there are a number of older models also available, many can be bought from Kubota dealerships, others from different dealerships and online.

The Kubota SSV65 and the Kubota SSV75 both have Kubota engines that are powerful and reliable. There is a common rail system and diesel particulate filter ( DPF) muffler, and automatic regeneration system built in to keep the muffler clean and safe.

There are two multi-function levers, a left control lever and a right to control lever that lets the operative access all controls and attachment operations from the safety of the cab. This includes the main hydraulic line and the three electrical lines.

There is an optional high flow hydraulic system which is designed to be able to be used with certain attachments which may require additional hydraulic power.

There is also a dial type hand throttle available, which can be used for certain tasks that need a constant engine speed, such as cold planning, trenching and snow blowing.

There is a hydraulic driven cooling system, which allows the fan to vary its speed and maintain appropriate water and oil temperatures. This also allows the engine to more quickly when the weather is cold.

Kubota Skid Steers have a type of vertical lift design which has a self levelling function. What this means in practice is that when the attachment is raised, but self levelling function keeps the position of the bucket stable. This means there is no need to manually adjust the attachment during the process.

Both the Kubota SSV65 and the TheKubota SSV75 have features which make for an enhanced travel performance. There is a standard to speed travel option, effected by shifting from low to high gear at speeds of approximately 7 – 11 mph.

There is also an option to have Kubota shoclkess ride fitted ( KSR), both have heavy duty tires and high ground clearance.

The interior of the cab has a number of features, which make it both comfortable and safe  for the operative using the skid steer. There is clear visibility all around, including the whole of the bucket.

This means the operation can be viewed and assessed in a completely safe manner. There is a front post switch panel on both the left and right side, a 12 V power socket that can be used for recharging smartphones and other electronic prices, a suspension seat and an obligatory cupholder.

There is a rear view mirror adding to the enhanced visibility of the, an air conditioning system that allows both hot and cold to be blown through the cab, depending upon the weather conditions, and certain functions make sure the interior windows do not freeze during the winter months.

The cab itself is built with safety in mind.

There is a sliding front door for easy access at all times, an ROPS / FOPS cabin and the cab itself is pressurised to make sure that insects, dust and any other debris from the workplace environment cannot enter the cab, causing distress and possible injury to the operative.

Both the Kubota SSV65 and theKubota SSV7 require daily routine checks, as well as more routine maintenance and servicing. All the components that need to be accessed to perform these checks and maintenance can be easily accessed at all times.

These include :  engine oil filler tube, engine oil dipstick, battery, engine oil filter, diesel fuel filter cube, air cleaner indicator, a norex, coolant reserve tank, water separator, fuel filter and door lock.

The radiator and oil cooler are  mounted on top of the engine, again designed for easy access.

Kubota Skid Steer Attachments

The Kubota Skid Steer models, The Kubota SSV65 and theKubota SSV75 , can both have a wide range of attachments fitted, which effectively determine the work they can do.

The three main types of attachment or known as a bucket, a pallet fork and a bale spear. There are a number of smaller attachments known as an auger, a brush cutter, a broom, a breaker, a grapple, a power rake, a sweeper, a stump grinder, a snow blade, a snow blower, a Snow pusher and a tiller.

Kubota Skid Steer Reviews

There are numerous online reviews for current and previous Kubota skid steers, ranging from Amazon to eBay, to other tractor and agricultural machinery sites.

The problem with all online reviews about any product is being able to verify that they are genuine customer reviews, both good and bad.

Manufacturers and their competitors have been known to post both good and negative reviews on certain sites in order to either boost in sales or damage to sales of the competition.

No one is suggesting that Kubota has done this, but the general climate does put a cloud over the  whole nature of reviews.

There are two solutions to this. Firstly to go to YouTube and watch reviews of Kubota skid steers, which  on the whole are unashamedly produced by Kubota dealerships.

Whilst they are unlikely to flag up any problems or defects, they do give a healthy view of what the Kubota Skid Steer is like if everything is going well.

The second placed to go is Internet forums, such as Tractorbynet, where there is a huge amount of valuable and normally unbiased opinions and experience about Kubota Skid Steers and other Kubota tractors and agricultural machinery.

Kubota Skid Steer Problems

If buying a new Kubota skid steer, then it is worth making sure all your details are registered with the Kubota dealership, in case there are any problems or any product recall that you need to be notified of.

Otherwise Internet discussion forums such as tractorbynet and Agtalk can give a good insight into any mechanical problems that may occur, or any practical issues that people may have.

This is normally regarding things such as easy access or not to interior of the cab, other safety issues, whether to use tires or tracks, any problems relating to maintenance or accessibility of parts, and normally discussion on the ease or accessibility of controls that the operative has to use to use the skid steer

Kubota Zero Turn Mowers Guide

Kubota Zero Turn Lawn Mower

A Kubota Zero Turn Mower is a fairly standard type of garden lawnmower, with the exception that it works with a turning radius that is virtually zero. This is achieved largely through a system of hydraulic transmission, which allows a high degree of manoeuvrability and freedom to use in difficult or rugged terrain.

A  Zero Turn Mower normally operates by using two levers to manoeuvre  the mower, rather than a steering wheel. This can seem a bit odd to someone who has not used one before, but it easy to get used to.

It means the mower can operate in a much smoother function, and allow the operator to get really close to things like trees and flowerbeds in a way that they probably would not be able to with a more standard garden tractor.

A Kubota Zero Turn Mower can be used for either commercial or domestic work, and this should be taken into account when deciding which model to buy. Different attachments will work with different models, and different models will have different engine sizes, by dimensions, wheelbase treads, tire sizes and deck sizes.

The usage of the zero turn mower may also have implications for the type of warranty that can apply to the tractor, and again the should be clarified at time of purchase.

Kubota Zero Turn Mowers / Kubota Zero Turn Lawn Mowers – Prices

Prices for these mowers can vary considerably, and prices listed below should be taken as an indicative range, based on the manufacturer’s recommended prices as of summer 2019 in the USA.

All Kubota Zero Turn Mowers have a manufacturers recommended price, which is the first price shown in the range, and then there are additional influence and attachments which can be added, which are reflected in the second price shown.

Any manufacturer recommended price is likely to have a significant discount built into it, similar to when buying a new auto. In addition, there are likely to be a number of nationwide Kubota special deals on offer, on certain models at certain times of year. In addition, a dealership  is likely to have a number of incentives relating both to finance, price, delivery and servicing and maintenance plans. There may also be special deals on extended warranties etc.

All in all, there are a number of areas where significant savings can be made if the customer is willing to bide their time, be willing to negotiate and sometimes be willing to travel.

Kubota Zero Turn Mower Reviews

Reviews of zero turn mowers tend to be about specific models, rather than zero turn  mowers in general. It is therefore a good idea to browse through the available Kubota models, both current and old, and see both which are suitable for your needs, and also if any particular models seem to have specific problems.

This can give quite a good indication of what zero turn mower might be best for you, at the same time being a lead in to where to look for more detailed  information.

People tend to be slightly sceptical of reviews online, often for good reason,  so finding valid impartial reviews can sometimes be quite difficult.

You Tube –  that are likely to be a number of reviews of Kubota Zero Turn Mowers on YouTube, as well as on other online video channels.

These are normally made by specific Kubota dealerships, and are very powerful and effective marketing tools. Whilst they are predominantly dealer led, and that such be viewed with that in mind, they do normally offer an in-depth analysis of what the Kubota Zero turn mower can offer and how it works.

These types of reviews are normally a good introduction to what the no can be like, and should be used as a first basis impression. Further investigation into comparisons with other mowers, prices and any problems there may be should be further investigated.

EBay – whilst many people think of eBay is purely an online auction house, it is also a place where people will effectively post reviews of all types of machinery.

Doing a search for any Kubota Zero Turn Mowers  will give some sense of which ones are available, at what price and what issues or problems there have been redacted the type of make and model over the years

Kubota Zero Turn Mower Price Comparison.

When talking about price comparison with Kubota Zero Turn Mowers, there are two things to be considered.

One is a price comparison with other manufacturers of zero turn mowers, and more importantly,  comparison between different types of Kubota Zero Turn Mowers which can be obtained through different Kubota dealerships.

It is worth remembering that every Kubota dealership is a separate business, and as such is willing to try and make special deals to obtain your business.

It is also worth remembering that you do not necessarily have to do servicing and maintenance and long-term repair work with the Kubota dealership that you buy the mower from.

This means that you could buy the Kubota Zero Turn Mower from a dealer quite a way a way, if you can sort out transportation costs, and then deal with servicing and maintenance with a local Kubota dealer.

Every Kubota Zero Turn Mower will have a manufacturer’s recommended list price, and every dealer will be willing, or should be willing, to offer a significant discount on this list price.

In addition, a dealer is likely to offer other incentives and discounts to improve the price on offer. This may be because of the time of year that you are thinking of buying the mower, or because the dealership has an inventory issue that they are trying to deal with.

Kubota Zero Turn Mower Problems

Problems that people have with their Kubota Zero Turn Mowers tends to fall into a number of categories. Online reviews and discussion forums allow people to flag up individual problems they have with a mower, and whether or not these problems have been built with.

Quite often, the complaint is about bad customer service, either from Kubota itself, or from the Kubota dealership that the mower was bought.

While these complaints may well be valid, it is sometimes difficult to be entirely sure where the fauly lays, and should not necessarily be a barrier to buying a Kubota Zero Turn Mower.

It is also worth remembering that people do use online forums, discussion groups, Facebook pages etc to complain about problems that are perfectly valid, often out of frustration more than anything else.

The flipside of this, is that whilst his problems are perfectly legitimate, they can  present a slightly one-sided view, as people who are satisfied happy with theirKubota Zero Turn Mower tends not to post about them.

The main exception to this rule is on Amazon, where people do quite happily post reviews both good and bad of products. This presents a different problem, in that some manufacturers of certain products effectively commission people to write favourable reviews, and this has to an extent coloured the legitimacy of all reviews of all products on Amazon and other sites.

Other problems that people may have can relate to things such as the terms and conditions of a warranty, maintenance issues in terms of how to fix or service the engine or conservation parts of a Kubota Zero Turn Mower. Because the transmission of a Kubota Zero Turn Mower  is hydrostatic, quite often problems can occur if there is at in the system, and it effectively needs bleeding.

Understanding what the problems are can allow someone to either fix them themselves, or be specific with a dealership as to how to correct them.

Kubota Diesel Zero Turn

Some Kubota Zero Turn Mowers are diesel, often the border models with a significantly increased deck size. This is important, only in the sense that people need to be aware of the fact that the tractor or mother or run on diesel rather than gas. I

It can also be important for long-term usage. A number of years ago many governments encouraged car manufacturers and tractor manufacturers to go diesel, whilst nowadays trend is Ray much in the opposite direction. Many diesel-based machines are taxed very heavily as a way of discouraging them.

Kubota Commercial Zero Turn Mowers

A  number of Kubota Zero Turn Mowers  are termed commercial.

This normally indicates that these mowers are at the higher end of the range, both in terms of price and capabilities. It should also be noted that commercial zero turn mowers may have different locations and conditions relating both to finance and to warranties. This means that the usage of the mower may be conditional in relation to both these areas.

Any Kubota Zero Turn Mower  can be used for anything, commercial or residential, it is just important to note that its usage and intended for commercial purposes will have an implication for any manufacturer’s warranty, or any extended warranty may have been purchased.

Kubota Zero Turn Parts

Finding Kubota Zero Turn Parts is of itself relatively easy, but there are a few potential pitfalls to look out for. What is important is to make sure that the pot is specific to the year and model of the particular Kubota Zero Turn mower that you are looking for.

Also to be clear that the part is new not refurbished or used. A number of parts are likely to have been reclaimed from existing Kubota Zero Turn mowers, and on the whole these should be avoided. It is always much better to obtain manufacturers parts, which with the wide selection available online can often be bought at a significant discount.

There are a wide range of manuals relating to all types of different Kubota Zero Turn mowers, which can either be downloaded as a PDF, or bought for a relatively small amount. These manuals should include diagrams as to how and where parts can be fitted, and in the majority of cases will be enough for someone to replace an existing part on a mower if they are relatively sure about what they are doing.

If not, there are a number of online tractor and Kubota discussion groups, advice and help can easily be sought

Used Kubota Zero Turn Mowers

There is a significant market  in Used Kubota Zero Turn Mowers, ranging from online auction sites such as eBay, to online tractor markets, to local dealerships, to local ads etc. As with any second-hand good or vehicle, basic common sense applies. There is no magic wand around second-hand or used mowers.

The best advice is to treat the idea of a Used Kubota Zero turn Mowers same way that you would a second-hand or used auto. People take different attitudes as to what they are willing to buy and what they are willing to pay for it, and in the end it is really a trade-off between cost and risk of reliability or potential problems.

Kubota 60 Inch Zero Turn Mower

A Kubota 60 Inch Zero Turn Mower is pretty much at the top end of the size for a cutting deck, and is likely to be a type of mother used either for commercial purposes, or someone has a significant area of land they need to maintain, that can for a number of reasons present  a wide range of problems.

This type of mower should be investigated carefully, simply because it is quite a specialist type of garden tractor. It is important to know what types of attachments implements may be available to be used in addition to the Kubota 60 Inch Zero Turn Mower, and whether or not these are appropriate or the type of work that this garden tractor is likely to undertake.

Kubota RTV Utility Vehicles – New and Used

Kubota Rtv’s are utility vehicles that come in three different shapes and sizes – compact to mid size, full size, and xg. All utility vehicles can be used for awide variety of jobs and work. Many people use them for residential purposes, different types of construction projects,  a wide range of  agricultural work. Many people also use Kubota RTV’s for different lines of commercial work, in the above areas and for more specialixed projects.

Kubota RTV 900 Parts

Getting correct parts for a Kubota RTV 900 can be a tricky process, if someone decides not to buy them directly from the manufacturer. There is often atendency to cut corners on parts and beither buy them on sites such as ebay or other online auction sites. This can apply to new and used Kubota RTV 900 parts.

The importance of buying from the manufacturer direct, or through a Kubota dealer is that it may be a necessary condition of any warranty that is still running on the utility tractor, and ensures that the utility vehicle continues to function aeffectively as it is meant to. In addition to finding the correct part, it is often a good idea to find the relevent Kubota manual, and also to find a diagram showing placement and installation procedures for all parts.

Used Kubota RTV

With prices for a new Kubota utility vehicle probably centring around the US $ 20,000/25,000 mark, many people look to a second-hand or a used utility vehicle, partly on the basis of cost and partly on the basis of convenience. Kubota utility vehicles have been around for a long time, and there are a large number of second-hand and used Kubota RTVs available.

If thinking about buying a used utility vehicle, it is worth using the same considerations that you would if buying a used or second-hand car or truck. If bought from a Kubota dealer, there is a better chance of knowing the history of the vehicle, and the possibility of its original warranty still being in place, or a new one issued by the dealership, albeit not as extensive as a manufacturer’s warranty.

Buying from a dealership has advantages, but also disadvantages in that you are likely to pay a premium. If buying directly from another individual, either through an online site such as eBay or through a local ad, then it is much more of a risky process.

An individual’s  choice as to which of these options to follow up to a large extent depend on their engineering or mechanical knowledge and skill, and the ability to know exactly what they are buying.

Two things are particularly important, whichever route the individual chooses to go down. Firstly a history of the vehicle in terms of servicing and maintenance routine is crucial, and should have been kept and completed by the individual owning the vehicle in conjunction with hopefully a Kubota dealership.

Secondly, is an indication of the use of the vehicle. This can normally be gathered quite easily by finding out what type of work the utility vehicle has been involved in, and on what type of land for construction area this work has taken place.

This should give a fairly good indication of the condition of the of the utility vehicle, and act as a good guide to what is a realistic price for its sale.

Kubota RTV Prices

Many dealers won’t quote a price on their websites, instead they ask for your details and say they will give you aquote. This is really a bit of a cop out, and something to be avoided.

All vehicles will have a list price, set by the manufacturer, similar to cars and trucks. Each dealership will have considerable room to vary thsi list price. This is normally done by discounts, low interest rates, special deals and deals on servicing and maintenance.

It is worth finding out as much information as you can about the pricing, before approaching a dealership. It is easily do-able to negotiate with dealerships over the phone or online before visiting them, which puts the purchaser in a much stronger buying position.

It is also worth contacting several dealerships, even some quite a distance away from where you live, as they may be willing to include delivery as part of a deal.
