 Kubota/John Deere

Hello to all-I am still looking around for my tractor and have a few questions for ya'll. I decided I would really like a full cab and air. I found a new Kabota 3430 with a cab and air with loader at $23,000. More than I wanted to go but it is new with warranty and the cab and air. I know Chief likes his JD but maybe he can give me a comparison to the Kabota. Also I believe there was a person out there who deals with the Kabota and he could let me know anything I had better ask up front and also if I am in the ball-park with the price. My many thanks to you all.

It will probably take a year or more yet before Deere gets on the band wagon and follows Kubota with a factory rops cab with air conditioning and a good package of ammenities. They may even use an exclusive aftermarket cab provider like Sims who has experience with that style cab. After all how long did Kubota have the market to itself with the commercial line of small loader backhoes. Local dealers have been telling customers next year for about three to four years so they are working on it.

Thanks for the reply Art. I believe you are the individual that is actually a Kubota fan. Is that correct? What do you think I should pay for a new Kubota as I described if I can't find a good used one? Is this a big enough tractor to add a backhoe, post hole attachmet or anything else I might want? I don't want a small unit. Thanks again for all your insight.

Thoughts are that the air could be a nice thing! I would need to know more about what you are going to do before I would tell you how good you are doing.

DTNPROP, that is a pretty good price. If $23,000 was more than you wanted to go on price, then a comparable John Deere (4410)would be out of the question as a 4410 with ehydro, Dual Mid & Single Rear SCV, 27x8.5-15 6PR Front & 43x16-20 4PR Rear R4 Ind. tires, and 430 loader would be running around the $20,500 mark. Add a Curtis Cab with air and that number will go up quite a bit depending on which model cab and the goodies on it. I would have to check on the actual price, but they are NOT cheap but are VERY nice cabs.

If a cab and air is on your gotta have list. I would say go with the Kubota. The comparison Kubota uses on their web site with the 4310 is not a valid apples to apples comparison although the 4310 will do pretty much everything the L3430 will. The 4310 would be priced more in the range you are considering around $19,000 equipped as above. With the cab and goodies would be competitively priced.

They are both good tractors. My advice would be to price out and demo models you want to compare and go with the tractor package that appeals most to you and the uses you have in mind. Personally I liked the egonomics and features such as the ehydro, motion match, and load match. Another big thing that swayed my decision to John Deere was the heavy duty build of the MMM; 7 guage steel. Most of their equipment is built that way. I believe Kubota still uses 10 guage steel but I am not sure....at least at the time they did. The Yanmar diesel is one of the best engines money can buy, and has an excellent reliability reputation. Still the Kubota engines are extremely reliable as well. I also liked the logistic support John Deere offered as compared to other dealers in my area. That does not mean the Kubota dealer in your area will not provide fine support.

Bottom line is.......those are your "Green Backs" and you are the final decision maker as to the uses you have in mind and must compare as well as judge how well each model stacks up as well as how the dealer in your area stacks up.

The Kubota I owned prior to my 4410 was a good little tractor but it was much older so it would not be fair to compare it to the 4410 I have now. It was a cold natured beast but I learned to accomodate it. I don't think the newer Kubota's are but the glow plug design of the engine is dated. The Yanmar on my 4410 uses an intake passage heater grid.

In my case, I got a VERY good price and the dealer takes VERY good care of me. Anyway, hope this was of some value to you in making your decision. Good luck!
