We just purchased a new B3030 factory cab,403 fel,2781 blower w/ hydraulic chute control,cd,ac,tilt, all the bells & whistles. We could have purchased another brand for a lot less, so why kubota? Quality,power,lightweight,quiet,reliable and they hold their value. We got an $8000. trade in on a 5 year old B7500 that we worked the balls out of 12 months a year. Never once did she leave us dead on the side of the road!! That is why we choose kubota.
