I was down to about 10 minutes per lot that we graded compared to 25-35 with the TK and 45+ with the BC.

I must admit, when I was told that we were getting a kubota I was super pi$$ed, I thought they were junk compared to the TK tl250 we had. I ate crow big time on that one...

The BC 870 we demo'd was super ncie, and very strong, but I didnt get enough time in the seat to actually test it out.
Exactly this I have had our 90 pushing dirt rolling over the top of the blade and she was still going ( I was having fun with it I will admit)

Is there some maintenance involved in owning these machines, yes. Are they junk, lets get real.
Very well said and 100% true

I'm sitting in the cab of the 277C right now, 515 hrs, time flies and the tracks are near new. Taken care of and maintained, they will last 1000+ hours. But I'd rather have a CTL track system though, these MTL's spit rocks in the air when working in round stone.

I'm confused Ron, which one is it? Getting beat up, or near new?

Look closer, it's so obvious, you'd think that after 2 years, people would just look closer.
