 lack of service concerns

There is a Kubota dealership near me that leases 3130's to a local nursery. When they are returned, they usually have about 200 hours on them. They are sold for a substantial discount. My hangup with these tractors is that during that time, they receive no serivce. I talked to one of the guys at the nursery, and he told me that they do not change any fluids. Should I consider this to be a problem?

I don't see 200 hours as a real problem where it will hurt the machine. Are the savings enough to warrent used vs new ??

The last one that I checked on had 230 hours on it, and with a FEL and canopy, it was 13,700. Does this sound like a decent deal? Is the 3130 a pretty good machine? I have read a few post of the opinion that it is underpowered, but I do not know. Once before, they had one with 120 hours on it, and it was 15,700 with FEL. The salesman said that the price is based more on how long the lessor has had the machine, more than the hours. The more months they are leased, the lower the selling price. This nursery leases tractors ever year, all 3130's.

200 hours is not the best for zero service but I wouldn't hit the panic button. The conditions there probably aren't very dusty like light construction work. More machines then you would care to think are run like this on the used market. When you go to buy it they will tell you it was serviced but who knows. At least you know the bench mark.

Granted, the initial 50-100 hours is the big break in period and you would rather have one with 250 hours that was serviced at 50 but I wouldn't panic if the price is right. I am very suprised a dealer would allow the lease without the required service? Are you positive there was no service done? That to me seems strange.
