    I have a long 610 dt it's about 60 hp with 4 wheel drive and a loader.I bought it used and it has been a good tractor the parts are always available but not cheap! I had to put in a clutch and hydrolic pump. The loader is slow. I wish it had a shuttle shift but I don't think they offer it. a great tractor over all.

    I've had a Long for years. Great tractor. I bought it used for $4000.00 when a comparable size and condition Kubota or John Deere would have been $12-15,000. As for parts prices, have you bought any Kubota parts lately. The Long is a simple machine, there fore easy to work on and less to go wrong.
