The Kubota B2650 is one of the bestselling compact tractors on the market, and has a significant following both among Kubota dealers and their customers. It is recognised as being both powerful and versatile, and has a strong reputation for its reliability and ease of use.
Kubota B2650 problems
One of the first things any customer should look at when thinking of buying a Kubota B2650 is what problems other people have had, or are having with one. This may seem a bit surprising, but in fact it is what anyone who is buying a new tractor or a piece of agricultural machinery should always do.
It is very easy to get carried away by the good points of a tractor, but it is also important to know what downsides if any there are. The should not detract the customer from buying the tractor, but should give them a more rounded picture.
Any browsing of a discussion forum will lead to individual posts that highlight problems that an individual may have had with a Kubota B2650. These individual problems can sometimes be mechanical, about its use or about problems with a particular dealership.
What is important is not to dismiss these problems but to see them in context. A lot of the problems that people have occur because the tractor has not been used properly, or because it has not been serviced and maintained in the manner that Kubota suggest in the instruction manual.
Outside of this, problems can occur simply because the tractor has left the conveyor belt with a defective part or lack of part in place. When problems like this occur, the dealer and Kubota should do their utmost to remedy them as quickly as possible. A new Kubota will be under manufacturers warranty, which would cover any problems associated with the initial delivery of the machine.
Anyone worried about the reliability of a particular Kubota tractor, in this case the Kubota B2650 should be able to check statistics on how times there is a recall, or manufacturing problems in general. The statistics can often be found on government websites, specialist agricultural websites or individual consumer websites.
Kubota B2650 specs
When looking at the specifications for a Kubota B2650,it is quite easy to get lost in the detail. The instruction manual carries a significant amount of information about the tractor’s PTO power, its engine, its capacities, its weight, its clutch capability or not, it’s travelling system and its hydraulic unit system and capacity.
A lot of the details of the specifications will not be that significant most people, but there are a few that should be carefully checked.
Kubota has a strong reputation for its engines, and most people will be happy to take these at face value, although different Kubota engines will have different numbers of cylinders and different maximum torque.
It is good to know the capacity of the fuel tank, and the engine coolant as both of these can be practical factors determining the usage of the tractor.
When Kubota talk about the travelling system of a tractor, they are referring to its tires, its steering, its transmission, its braking system and its minimum turning radius. All of these are important to understand both before and after purchase,
The hydraulic control system is fairly standard in any Kubota tractor, but it is worth mentioning that it has a three-point each system, which many people is a deal breaker in terms of which tractor they buy.
Kubota B2650 Price
It is difficult to talk with any real accuracy but the price of a Kubota B2650 for a number of reasons. A new tractor will have a manufacturers price, or a list price, which will vary depending upon where the customer lives. In addition, a dealership is likely to offer a number of discounts on new tractors at different times of the year, and too different types of customer.
There are likely to be deals that are offered by Kubota at a national level, and then deals offered by a local Kubota dealership. These can significantly reduce the price, and/or be reflected not so much in a reduced price, but in really good deals on servicing and maintenance and transportation cost. For some people this might be more important than a reduction in the manufacturer’s list price.
Buying a used Kubota B2650, of which there are many thousands, is obviously more difficult to determine a price on. What is important is to check as far as possible the type of work the machine is done, the type of ground it has been used on as well as his age and condition.
Many people buy a tractor online, through sites such as eBay or other auction sites. There are also many more sites that offer tractors for sale that are worth considering. The best way to check out the price on a tractor that someone is considering buying, is to do a quick post on a site, like tractor by net, with details, and ask other people what they think is a fair price.
Feedback from other Kubota users online, is by far the best way to check prices and get advice both before and after buying any type of tractor, new or used.
Kubota B2650 Review
People look for reviews of tractors for two or three main reasons.. People off like the idea of buying a specific tractor and want to convince themselves that it is the right one for them. This is very understandable given the amount of money that they are likely to spend on one. Many people buying a new car or truck will do the same thing.
The best place for this type of review is a site by you tube, but dealers will post videos of a Kubota B2650, show it in action, and show its best features. These are unapologetic sales pitches, but very useful for someone who has already pretty much decided this is what they want to buy.
Other people will look for reviews to get information, be able to make comparisons, and generally try and be wise before rather than after the event. The best place to get this type of review or information is on discussion forums, where users and ex-users will be able to share their experience.
This advice and experience is normally fairly objective, although someone who has had a really bad experience with any tractor may well be quite evangelical in their views, in trying to persuade someone mot to purchase one.
As with all reviews, it is important to realise it is just one person’s opinion or experience, and should be taken as such. If however a significant number of people are highlighting a similar problem, then that could lead to a more thorough investigation of the specific tractor before purchase.
Kubota B2650 Backhoe
A Kubota backhoe is one of the most useful implements that Kubota have, and can make a significant difference to how the tractor is used. On of Kubota’s main selling points is there three-point each system, which makes using and adjusting implements incredibly simple to do.

Many people see manuals as something they refer to to in an emergency, rather than something that can be usefully looked at for routine use and maintenance. Whilst a tractor manual contains a lot of information that the owner should already know, it can be good to refresh their memory on issues such as safety and types of usage.
The manual will also cover very specific and detailed information about servicing and maintenance of the tractor, and failure to follow these directions may well lead to problems with the warranty if the need arises to make a claim under it.
Most Kubota warranties for new tractors, and many warranties for used tractors, will specify certain conditions concerning servicing, maintenance and manufactures parts. The warranty will normally make it a central fact authority that any breach of these conditions is likely to lead to the warranty being pointed in a claim under it.
It can be quite difficult to dispute this type of warranty, as this is normally included as a condition of sale that the customer will have signed on purchase. It is much easier to read and understand the relevant sections of the manual, and to adhere to them.

Secondly is to try and obtain a parts diagram, that shows how the part is to be fitted. This may sometimes be available from the dealership where the part is bought, or from a manual for the tractor itself available online.
