I've had 3. They're awesome all around machines for sure. Have had to do little maintenance. The only complaint I can think of is that they can tend to be a little on the heavy side. So rutting/tearing can be an issue if you're not careful. This can easily be overcome with an expererienced operator, obviously.

No...The older ones were solid machines. I have two friends that have 500-700 hrs on them. One just replaced the deck drive belt. No other issues that I know of.

In my career I have operated several Kubota's with 5000+ hours! They build industrial quality machines, a step up compared to commercial quality IMO.
