Well I know Kubota is a big name in light to heavy equipment. But they are one of the least mentioned mowers on Lawnsite. I rarely ever see one, maybe it's a regional thing. Its not uncommon to see a fleet of Exmarks or John Deeres but rarely do I ever see anything over a solo Kubota. And that's usually a park or maintenance crew. What's the deal? I would think from their reputation in other area's they would be a top notch mower. Maybe they are just priced too high. Seems like I did hear of a few problems with them hydraulics or drives systems but I can't remember, like I said they are rarely mentioned.
