hi, if i am correct all kubotas that are being built now (not sure about past) are 4x4. My grandparents have a 4610 i believe that they use for farming (pretty sure that is the model, whatever the new one is for the year) it is very powerful and traction is great, they offer a full line of accesories which are great to, one thing i love is the auto trans and the pedal setup, put foot forward and u go forward, lean it back and u go backwards. Thanks Scottie

The Kubota is built a little light for my taste,and the
current crop of New Holland tractors with the Iveco motors
aren't particularly gutsy. The earlier Ford tractors like
the 4110 and the 4610 are pretty good. Also the Massey
Ferguson 353 and 373 are excellent machines.

The Kubota is a great tractor. I have a M8200 (80 hp) 2wd that I have been very pleased with. I pull a 15' batwing bushhogg doing right of way mowing and a 7' high back boxblade and it handle both of them with no problem. There is a big hay farmer in my area that had 1 Kubota and 3 New Holland tractors all less than two years old. Last year they sold all 3 New Hollands and replaced them with Kubotas because the New Hollands stayed broke down all the time.
