I can't speak about kubota tractors but I have run Kubota motors in my skid steers since 2002. I have had everything from 46-92 hp in kubota and just about everything in-between. If the rest of the machine is built as reliable as the motors, then I think you would be okay. My father in law has an old B3000 or very close. Many years of service and solid machine but no FEL on it.
