 Kubota T1700HX Review

Hi All,
I'm new to this forum--found it while researching a potenital purchase. I am looking at buying a Kubota T1700HX (small potatoes compared to some of the big boy tractors discussed here) but I am just looking to use it for cutting a little over an acre of lawn, pulling a small trailer and hopefully plowing my driveway.
My questions are does anyone have any advice as to the overall performance and longevity of this model. It was purchased new in 1994 and has 194 hours on the engine. I think I can get it for $1,100.00 usd. It is in great shape, always garaged etc. Is that a good price? Any problems with this model? And just how difficult is it to find a blade (part #T2083) or blower (part#T2541) for this tractor?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Hi,
Thanks for responding--they don't make it anymore. It's 11 years old.

They list all the prior "official" models imported to the US.

All others are considered "grey market" tractors, for which there is not parts support or accessories offered.

I am no expert on grey market tractors, if indeed this is one, but we have others here who are very knowledgeable.

You have a great price on a low hour machine, the question is how difficult it will be to get parts.

Due simply to its age you might not find an exact blower or front plow still available, but I would bet you could modify a plow made for an ATV with satisfactory results.

Oh right, yes it is listed under the prior year catagory. I actually printed out the specs from the Kabota site which is how I found the attachment part numbers.
So, you think it's a good price? That makes me feel better about the purchase. The guy listed it at 1800.00 but settled for 1100.00 since he is moving and needs to get it out. He gave me all original paperwork etc.
I couldn't read your entire message--got cut off, I think, due to the fact that I'm a new member? Would love to hear more about alternative plow attachment.
Thanks

This tractor is listed on the Kubota site under the Prior Products list along with all the options available at that time. Sounds like a good buy on a nice little tractor if parts can be located when needed.

I called the local Kubota dealer where the tractor was purchased new. They said repair parts wouldn't be a problem but attachements would be hard to come by--I would really like a plow--so, I either have to get lucky and find a used one or as DRankin suggested rig something up--how difficult would that be? I didn't even think of that.

The ATV plows generally have a sub-frame that extends completely under the vehicle a attach's to a trailer ball or similar place.

The frame will have a couple places where it it is stabilized to the front frame of the ATV and then frame and plow is lifted by means of a hand lever or a small winch.

Look up Northern Tool, Cabelas or Cycle Country for more info.

Is this model a 4wd?

Does it already have a mower deck?

Thanks for the tip--It is not a 4WD so, I would need weights and chains which are not hard to find. It does have a mower deck--44" cut.
I need to check it out more closely before purchase because the local dealer said that they tend to rot out at the linkage and where blades attach to the deck--anyone have a problem with this issue--with Kubota?
Although it is impossible to tell really, any educated guesses as to the life span I can expect out of a machine like this? As I said earlier, it is a 1994 with 194hours
17hp
Thanks for all the helpful information--great site.

"This tractor is listed on the Kubota site under the Prior Products list along with all the options available at that time. "

OK... I found it.... a 26KB connection problem.... I thought the whole page had downloaded and didn't wait to see the bottom.

Sorry about that....
