WTS Kubota GF1800 4WD Diesel front mower. 206hrs CT

Excellent condition 2002 Kubota GF1800 4WD front mounted mower, 18hp 3 cylinder diesel, 54" hydraulic lift deck. Only 206 hours. Almost like new - has a tear in the seat - ready to go. No welds and all original paint! Hydrostatic transmission and cruise control.

For more information take a look at it on Kubota's Web site

I'll try to get pictures of the actual machine up later today.

Asking $10,000

If you have any questions please ask!

Thank you and have a great day!

Machine

The hours seem exceptional low for a machine that's 7 years old???

How is it that there are so few hours on it?

Actually I have not had this very long. I picked it up for a friend who then did not come up with the cash so I'm trying to turn it over. I would love to be able to keep it but my mowing business dosn't need anything this large, or nice.

I suspect that the last guy just had it for mowing his lawn, and because it's a neat machine, and that he found it to be a bit big for his needs so he just sat on it.

Well, here are some pictures of it.








If you are interested please let me know and I can get you some better up close shots.

If you have any questions please let me know.

Have a great day!

Surely someone's in need of this fine machine.

Feel free to make me an offer.

Have a great evening!

That's one clean tractor, not sure if it's worth $10K though. Front cuts were all the rage "back in the day" now all the commercial guys want are ztr's. I sold my Kubota F-2400 for $3K a few yrs ago to a homeowner with a really big lawn, none of the commercial cutter's were interested.

Could be. I figured it was worth close to this since a local dealer has a show model with similar hours for $14k and it is only two wheel drive. That one is newer in years ('07 I think) and has one of the larger engines, but I'm not sure that's any better since these 18hp ones seem to have plenty of power.

Also a beat Lesco 7400 with 4k hrs just sold at the auction two weeks ago for $4500.
That one also has the bigger engine then the one I've got for sale.

That's about all I have to go by for price as these aren't particularly common.

Do you know, is the bigger engine a big deal? Or is it mainly beneficial if you're running a large deck?

Sounds like enough h.p. considering the deck size and it's a diesel. Have you tried craigslist or any other "for sale" sites? Also consider making the price $9500., it just sounds better, imo. (old used car sales tactic) Good Luck
