 Kubota Number 1 in Compact Tractor SALES

According to AEM, an industry reporting service, said in a Sept issue that Kubota is the #1 compact tractor by sales with an 8.6% increase over last year, John Deere was strong but a far off 2nd and Kioti #3. AEM also said NH was losing ground.

Those Kioti numbers do not surprise me. It looks like a great tractor for the money.

Kioti has good price and quality.
And with the introduction of mid mount mower on the DK 35 and 40,also the new CK series coming out with optional hydrostat ,Kioti should grow even more!

Here is something to ponder; did N/H lose ground due to a twin that is now available under another name, or some other reason? Did quality play a part in the numbers? Would be interesting to know these things.

 Kubota Number 1 in Compact Tractor SALES

Just because it is the # 1 Compact Tractor By Sales, doesn't mean it's the #1 compact tractor.

Here! Here! For DSG! I agree. The 4000 10 Series JD may cost a little more but they are great little tractors.

 Kubota Number 1 in Compact Tractor SALES

To DSQ and Chief,

Sales numbers don't lie. Kubota is Number 1 whether you think they have a good tractor or not. The simple fact of the matter is if Kubota didn't a have a good tractor with a competitive price and a good customer satisfaction driven dealer network, why are so many people buying them??? Do you think Ford or GM have bad trucks or SUV's with the numbers they sell? GOOD or BAD, something is steering the tractor buyer away from JD and NH??? With my experience this past spring after visiting 80% of the JD dealers's in Southeast and East MI, I think a good bit of JD's problem is dealer ARROGANCE and a take it or leave it, "JD is the ONLY tractor to buy and you are stupid if you don't pay my high price attitude". Somebody prove me wrong. My buying experience was based on visiting over 25 JD dealerships as I stated on another post back in June or May.

 Kubota Number 1 in Compact Tractor SALES

To Jeff & Anyone Else on this board:

who is READY to buy a tractor NOW. If you want a John Deere and you are READY to buy NOW. Contact me and I will get you in touch with a John Deere dealer who will put you in what you want at a VERY competitive price. Active and retired military get a little better price.

I will say it again! Kubota makes a damn nice little tractor for the money. I own a Kubota. John Deere makes a better one.

If I buy a new tractor, I will buy a JD. NO other manufacturer can come close to the service and support you will get with the Deere. Feature for feature JD is the value product. For the money paid and the service life of the product, again JD is the value product.

Finally, just keep any eye out around your area and see how many tractor dealer stay in business. My bet is that the "Green Paint" will be there long after all the others have gone out of business. In my line of work, I procure equipment for people who can tear up solid steel balls with balsa wood hammers. They have a heck of a time tearing up the green. Nuff said!

John Deere and Kubota do make a fine tractor.
My biggest problem with them is if you do tear them up you better have deep pockets for parts.
