KUBOTA B7100

The Kubota B7100 was a compact utility tractor made by Kubota in the mid-70s, and was available for sale as new until the mid-1980s. It was a well liked tractor, and there are many second-hand models still available, although given its age, care should be taken to verify mileage and condition of engine when buying.  The Kubota B7100 came as either a two wheel drive, or a four-wheel-drive with the HST being the hydrostatic version.

Kubota B7100 HST

The Kubota B7100 HST  had a hydrostatic transmission, and was available for sale from the mid-1970s, up until the mid-1990s, and as such there are probably more used Kubota B7100 HST’s still available than the standard model.

There were three variants of this tractor,  the Kubota B7100 HSTE which was a two wheel drive tractor, and the Kubota B7100 D and Kubota B7100 HSD which were both four-wheel-drive. It had a diesel three cylinder liquid cooled engine, with other specifications pretty similar to the standard Kubota B7100

Kubota B7100 Parts

Finding parts for a B7100 may be tricky, but there are several options available. It is unlikely but possible that a Kubota dealer may have parts available, or at least may know where they can be obtained.

They may have access to parts for current Kubota tractors, which can be used on older models. Going to a Kubota specific discussion forum may also be helpful, and also there may be parts available that have been taken from old and discarded Kubota B7100 tractors that can be obtained online.

As there is no question of having to comply with a warranty, partsts from other manufacturers can be used if appropriate. Again a good discussion forum such as tracker by net should be able to give people advice on this issue. Other options to consider include websites such as tractor house, eBay or advertising on craigslist to see if anyone can help

Kubota B7100 Reviews

Finding reviews for a Kubota B7100 can be quite tricky, largely because the tractor was in production and for sale before the internet was really in use.  This means that video reviews, and other reviews on sites like Amazon have not really happened.

What this does mean, is that someone needs to be a bit more creative in terms of finding reviews about this tractor.

Luckily, there are a number of websites, such as  tractorbynet, and orange tractor, which have a vast experience and a sizeable amount of information about tractors such as the Kubota B7100.

Sites such as this, are largely discussion forums, but because of their authority on the internet, they actually carry a sizeable amount of detailed and accurate information, that would normally be thought of as constituting a review.

Kubota B7100 reviews can also be found on sites that sell them for sale. Whilst these are not technically review sites, they should carry a significant amount of information about the tractor itself, largely because this is what helps to sell them.

There are a number of Kubota B7100 tractors for sale, and the internet is ideal place to start and check them out.

Given there age and rarity there may not be a  tractor close by to where the individual lives, so interest in any tractor that is advertised for sale online should also take into account any transportation costs that may be involved, as well as any pre-sale inspection or mechanical checks

Kubota B7100  tractors are advertised on sites such as tractorhouse.com, as well as eBay, Amazon and craigslist. Secondhand tractors are a huge market, and should be thought of in the same way as a second-hand or used car market.

When buying, it is ideal to try and find out as much as possible about the usage of the tractor, as this will give you a fairly good indication of what its mechanical condition is likely to be. This may more easily be done if purchasing from an individual, than from a dealer.

This simply because an individual can give you a fairly good description of when and how they purchased the tractor, what sort of land it has been used on and what it has been used for. The dealer may be able to give you this information, but is less likely to have such specifics.
