    Stopped at the kubota/deere dealer today while the wife was shopping. Im in the market for a newer tracked skid for tree/brush clearing(possible brushmower) and for my new flood control/prevention company. Also for moving mulch,soil and landscaping. Plan to either sell my mustang wheeled skid or trade it in and take advantage of the tax credit. Came accross a 2010 Kubota SVL75 w/ 800hrs, full cab, ac/heat. Tracks are in good shape. One owner machine traded in for a new 90. They are asking $34k before trade in. For the guys with the new kubotas, how do yall like them. Here are a few pics of the machine im looking at.

    I have demoed a 75 and a 90 and am tossed between them bobcat and the new alpha series case. Awesome machines and I am always impressed with kubotas products, and after sales service.

    Price is high in my opinion, I can get one for 48 new loaded with a cab and AC.

    I LOVE these machines. I just can't justify that payment yet.

    Check the condition of the lift cylinders. I know a guy in my QDM (quality deer management) chapter that has broken two lift cylinders on his Kubota. He uses his machine for brush cutting trails and removing buck brush and other stuff like downed trees and brush on people's hunting properties. There is no way out for the debris that collects in the loader tower and it gets between the cylinders and the frame and breaks them. Very hard to even pressure wash the area.

    Does anyone have any experiance with the lsv 90 . Brother in law found one up here that is a loaded high flow with 1.5 hrs for 51k. Had a friend that demo d one and felt that the 90 had no hydro digging power.

    I ran the 75. I did not find it that powerful or that impressive. I like some of the ideas on it. The tie downs on the loader arms is a good idea. I would try the 90.
