 NH v Kubota

I was all set to buy a TC-33D when my father-in-law got me looking at Kubota. Can anyone give me any pros and cons of NH vs Kubota? I really like the NH, but want to make sure I get the right tractor for the money.

Dave, I'm a Kubota owner; would definitely recommend a Kubota over a New Holland . . . for myself. Fact is, they're both good tractors, as is the John Deere. You owe it to yourself to go look at all three, drive all three, and then decide which one is best for YOU!

Dave, I'm a NH owner. I would take a NH over a Kubota.
Just look at the to side buy side,the NH has alot more beef to them.
Don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with Kubota.Look at both carefully
and you will see that the NH is better built.You look and you decide there all
good.
Tom

 NH v Kubota

I own a NH TC40D. I haven't owned it long, only a week or so, but I can say I am more impressed each day I use it. But I also know Kubota builds a great diesel engine, just check out all of the IR Bobcat Skid steer loaders out there. If I'm not mistaken they all use Kubota engines now. Like mosst people here at the CTB board I would also have to say check them out side by side and make the choice for yourself. I looked closely at the JD 4600 and the NH TC40D before puchasing a tractor and made my finaly decesion on how I felt in the seat and price. Drive them around and ask the dealer if they would bring one out to your place for a demo. Some will do that.

 NH v Kubota

You know, it's So Easy to get hung up on specs and such. "Gee, this one's loader lifts 89 pounds more than the one I thought I wanted, and it lifts 1 inch higher too! But the 3rd one has 1 HP more.... Now what should I do?...."
As the one poster said, do your homework, but find the one that feels right to you. If it doesn't feel right to you, all the specs in the world won't help.

 NH v Kubota

I recently went through basically the same thing except it was between NH and JD. I was trading a NH 1725 for either the TC33D or JD 4300, ended up with the NH due to experience with dealer.Confidence in the dealer is a major factor.I love my NH with the exception of gear chatter,especially a low rpm's.I have 12 hours on it now and it has done everything i wanted it to do so far.The seat and ergonomics are great on the NH.But, it sure was a hard decision to make.Good Luck. Alan

Both have equally good reputations. Since you don't have to worry about one being better than the other, you are free to look at the important things. The biggie for me is how easy it is to hop on and off of the tractor. You will be doing that a lot more than you can even imagine. Especially if you use it as a chore and loader tractor.

 NH v Kubota

Dave D., any discussion of Kubota vs New Holland vs John Deere is bound to get religious after a while (it's the same as Ford vs Chevy vs Dodge trucks), but here are some things to consider anyhow. My humble opinion on compact tractors is that the big three are roughly equivalent and, in general, Kubota has the best quality, New Holland has the best ergonomics, and John Deere has the best attachment features. These are three very volatile statements to make, and each can be argued both for and against, but it is my opinion after shopping and researching these animals for the past 2 years. Now you say you were considering a TC33D. Which Kubota are you considering against it? The L3410 would be the closest from a spec point of view, but the B2910 is a possibility also. These are two very different tractors and my choice of a TC33D, L3410, or a B2910 would mostly depend on what I intended to do with the tractor and then how comfortable I was with the dealer, both from a price and service point of view. For example, if I was primarily going to be finish mowing nice turf then I would favor the B2910 with a belly mower because of its lighter weight and smaller stature. Alternatively, if I was primarily interested in a lot of rear 3 point hitch work with different gound-breaking implements I would probably favor the TC33D because of its greater weight, telescoping draft arms, and rotating seat which ease rear-facing work. Or in my own personal case, where I wanted to use a belly mower and still be able to go back and forth with a frame-mounted backhoe and loader frequently, I would (and did) go with a JD4300/4400 because it is the only one that has loader, belly mower, AND backhoe compatibility with the best attachment/removal system for all three implements. So where does all this leave you? Just what most folks on this board essentially say: "Figure out what you want the tractor to do, try all the brands out that you can, and purchase based on your comfort with the tractor, dealer service and price." I believe you really can't go wrong with any of the big 3, and maybe not with some of the other major brands either.

Jeff, I just wanted to run that line again because you said it so well. While I'm sure that there are individual models within each line that vary from those descriptions - and I've only driven a few of each - I agree that what you said sure seems to sum up the situation.
