 Woods vs. Kubota Loaders

I'm looking at loaders for my Kubota 4300DT. Comparing the Woods 1016 to the Kubota LA681 with a 66" bucket. Are there any pros/cons to one or the other? Any known problems, etc.?

Get the Kubota, no question as to the warrantee and who should know where and how to attach to the tractor then the people who designed it! They also know how much weight an axle they designed can handle safely without sacraficing longevity.

Art,

Thanks for your input however both manufactures have a 1year warrantee. When I look at the specs of the Woods vs. Kubota and Woods appears to have more "Heavy duty" build in all categories plus $500 cheaper in price. I'm looking for some real life experience or technical info to help guide me in making the right choice.


Thanks
Drake

stay with kubota woods loaders may say they are "rated" for more weight than the kubota but last time i checked woods did not make the tractor so what gives them the right to put more weight and stress on in. Kubouta designed it and the loader and spend millions on r&d to find the right loader. Woods one loader for many tractors.

 Woods vs. Kubota Loaders

Very interesting....I just called my Kubota dealer, looking for a price and availabilty of a LA681 loader for an L3710
I would like to buy. The dealer called his disti, and he says that Kubota has none, buy may make more by July. $4375 + 8.25% tax. So Sad He sells a lot of Woods equipment and offers the same loader mentioned here (1016) for $3800. It sure seems like Kubota mounts their loaders more securely to the frame, and the mechanics in the back say the Kubota is better than any after-mkt. They stopped selling SMCs. $4400 is out of this world, but I want Kubota.

I think the issue is with the warranty on the tractor, not on the loader.

There are two Kubota dealers near here. One sells Woods loaders and claims there is no problem with the warranty and promises to take care of any problem at the dealer. They will order a Kubota loader if the customer really wants one.

The other dealer sells only Kubota loaders and claims that if a non-Kubota loader is mounted, Kubota may not warranty problems that could be attributed to the loader, such as cracked frame. They will not mount a non-Kubota loader on a new tractor.

I decided to go with the second dealer for some other reasons and bought the a 3830 with the LA723 loader. Both have worked well.

We don't do a lot as far as a rental goes but a freind does. Using his remarks as I feel if he has 30 rental units available he has more experience then I do. He told me he had both the Cadet's as well as Kubota's that broke when he saved those dollars in purchasing for his rental fleet by going aftermarket. He did have tractors coming back in with chassis problems with the aftermarket additions and he as had no problems since he stays with the Kubota's line. You could buy an aftermarket and not have any problems, or you might spend thousands to save 500?

I have seen a number of loaders where the front support does little more than rest on a support point, which allows
some wiggle room during operation. I have had several JD 70A loaders with an interesting quick attach feature in the front, but they are a little loose, so the support tends to mushroom over time.

It makes sense to go with aftermarket products for some 3-point implements, but for a loader or a hoe, you have to stick with the OEM products. The loading of the tractor frame and drive train components is so important that aftermarket products could cause serious problems. If your tractor is under warranty, you almost have to stay with the OEM for loaders and hoes.
