 hours on new kubota

Just bought a new Kubota B7500. When it was delivered to me, it had 3.2 hours on it. Is this high for a new tractor?

My BX22 was delivered this morning with 1.1 hours, honestly can't see why 3 hours would be a problem if the tractor didn't look like it had been used or abused? I now have less than 2 hours and the FEL is pretty scratched up so doesn't seem like it would take much use to show up in other ways besides the hour meter?

My new BX22 had just over 2hrs when delivered, had a strong suspicion it was a floor model. Had a hydraulic leak at 12hrs that was easily fixed. Thing runs great quite a worker. good luck with yours.

I probably wouldn't have wondered but the tractor transmission seems a bit loud and squealy, which made me wonder if someone else got it and took it back because of that. I will be testing another one soon to compare the noise.

They do whine, especially when very new. The engine will take 100 hours or so before it smooths out too.

Actually, now that I think about it, I am not sure if it whines less at 140 hours or I just got used to listening to it.

Back to the original question..... all the 3.2 hours indicate is that the key was turned, not necessarily that the engine was running.

If someone in the showroom had turned the key and no one noticed it for awhile that would account for the hours.

To the new tractor owners -

It is NOT uncommon for your tractor to be delivered with a "few" hours showing on the hr meter.

Remember...

a) the delivering dealer has to put it together and test it
b) if you're getting an FEL, the hydraulics have to be run in and be checked and topped off several times before all the air is out of the system and is functioning properly
c) most dealers, after all is complete are proud of their sale, and like to show it off. They typically will finish "building" it, test it in the yard briefly, then drive in to clean it for delivery. After this, they will again start it to remove from the washdown area, and place it close to the show room for all "wanna-be" orange owners to see the "SOLD" tag.

All this run time adds up!

Willie H.

Just leaving the key on on this tractor does not make the hour-meter advance -- I tried it.
