    Yea the color is awful but I am glad their will be another competitor in the market to bring new ideas to the table. It will only help make the manufacturers we all buy from now construct better and more reliable machines.

    That sounds very interesting, I for one like their excavators so i would love to see a pic or two of the track loaders... anybody found or seen one yet. I heard from our local dealer that they are currently using prototypes in Japan.

    kubota makes a great product...we have a RTV and a little micro excavator...the K008-3...even their ag equipment is gaining popularity. Whatever they produce i'm sure will be a pretty quality product

    i did some routing around on Kubotas Japanese website...which was pretty funny, i was just clicking on things and seeing what they brought up. Kubota is a huge company apparently. I guess they would be like an IR or America. Anyway i ran out of time before i found anything that resembled a track loader...but maybe these will be the type of tracks on it

    hahaha those are funny looking track setups. Do you think it would be possible to have a deere/komatsu style undercarriage but with a suspended attatchment to the loader frame like cat? maybe kubota will do something like that to really come out with something new. I just don't want another same old ridgid mounted style like everyone else has.
