 Kubota vs Case

Hi, I am new here and found this forum to be very informative. I have a 5 acre property where I keep a few horses and am in need of a tractor to move dirt, manure, scrape a driveway and other minor ranch duties. No grass to mow or snow to clear since my property is upper desert with many rocks. More than likely I will only purchase a front loader which I will use to scrape a long driveway along with its other usage. I was reseraching and comparing Kubota L3400 HST 4 wheel drive and Case D/D40 tractors. Case is 4 cylinder 40 hp and the Kubota is a 3 cylinder 34.7 hp. I am interested in purchaseing a new tractor and staying within 30 to no more than 40 hp. My question is am I better off with the Kubota? If so, why? I am talking with both companie's dealers and they are willing to deal at this time since the economy here is on the down side. I am eager to learn more from your experience than brochures of each brand of tractor so am open to suggestions. One more thing, what is the major difference between the Kubota L3400 and the Kubota B7800?

Thank you for any response.

General advice:

The dealer is more important than the brand. When it needs something you're not likely to drive it to the nearest garage. And they should instruct you on operation and maintenance.

Get the tractor with the loader (and a back blade) installed. Make sure it has 4WD. Sounds like you need only 20-30 HP and ag-tread tires. Cylinder count doesn't matter except 2-cyls are noisy. Get a couple year's worth of replaceables (fluids and filters) with it so you'll have them.

Kubota has 0% interest now for 42 months if you are financing the purchase. I have a B7800 which I am trading for a L3240 but I have hill side and rough areas and go thru ditches. Also mow and move big rocks so I need--want-- something a bit bigger and 0% for 42 months and a good trade in for my B7800 (made) me trade. I had a BX2200 and it was great but slower and lower than the B series. Not sure the BX's wouldn't do what you need and the B surely will. Other will tell you to get the adjustible lowering 3 pt if your going to do rear blade work. I usually just back up with my front bucket lowered and angled to do what leveling or scraping I need to do and I also have a boxblade. Don't have a regular blade. Try the B and BX on the dealers lot and see what you think.

Kubota builds their tractors. No idea who builds the small Case. Suspect in this size tractor you will find better support with the Kubota. In my part of the world you find a good many dealerships that sell Case in the larger size and Kubota in the smaller or compact size. kt

Both brands are good solid tractors, and will have a good dealership network for years to come for your parts and service needs. I doubt there is a dime's worth of difference in the reliability and ability's of either brand. In the long term the Kubota will probably have a better resale value. As has been mentioned the dealership is the most important part of buying and enjoying your tractor. The cheapest dealer isn't always the best dealer, it is a good service department, friendly attitude, and a readily available supply of parts you may need that is far more important then brand. Have a great day. Frank.

Frank, don't shoot me but I do sell both! We also service and repair both. I do hate to dispell the rumors taht all things built are the same.

THEY ARE NOT!!!!!!

Difference of uses and owners do make a difference in life and repairs but they still do not cover for initial build quality.

There are many things to consider for each as well as all brands that make the differences of resale value as well.

Art; I guess you have me puzzeled a bit. I think you are upset about my comment that Case and Kubota are of equal quality or is it that my comment that a Kubota would likely have better resale struck a raw nerve? OK let me explain a bit why my comments were as they were. First off I've never owned a Case or Kubota compact. My personal experience of ownng several Case farm tractors and several IHC farm tractors was that with the exception of a model or two in both brands they were good solid tractors. That being said I based my opinion of Case compacts on the reputation of their precessors. Just this afternoon I sat on my brother in law's new 2640, (I think) Kubota, it is his second one, the other one is 25 yrs. old and still runs fine. Here again I am based my opinion of the Kubota tractors on never having heard much of any negative comment about them. I by no means have found or driven past every Case or Kubota dealership in the tri-state aeria in a 100 mile radius of Dubuque, Iowa, but my observatons are that most every Kubota dealership I go past probably has 10-25 compacts, Gator type Kubota utilitys and moweres out front, where as any Case dealership may have from none to maybe 3 at the most compacts out front. This tells me tha a Kubota must outsell the Case or the dealers wouldn't stock them. This is strictly where I got my assumption that a used Kubota would hold it's reasle better just because they seem to be far more numerous than Case around here, other parts of the cuntry I know nothing about. We both know that there are operators who can break an anvil with a rubber hammer, and others who could haul eggs in a dump truck and never crack an egg, so regardless of what the quality of either tractor coming out the factory door somebody can either destroy it or make it last 50 years. I certianly hope I havent lost a friend over something I said, so I do apologize for what ever upset you. Frank.

Shawnlove,

I believe the biggest issue is parts availability........and for many years to come after the sale.

Kubota is one of the few tractor companies who make their own engines, drive trains, and every other component in their tractors. Therefore, Kubota has 100% control over their supply lines. There are no worries about contracts expiring, or suppliers going belly up during the middle of a production run. Kubota maintains full control over its entire production line........and, therefore, over its entire parts inventory.

With the possible exception of a few body parts, most every Kubota part is still available for most makes and models purchased within the past 25 years.......and the prices for parts on those old tractors are quite reasonable.

Few other companies can claim to have 100% control over their suppliers. This is why Kubota has such a great reputation. It means a lot to have parts available to you for years and years to come.

Joel
