Talking Kubota vs: Bob Cat

Now I'm just asking but does anyone know anything about the new Bob Cat line of tractors? They look good and price isn't all that bad. But they don't have a rally cool Group web page like "Orange Tractor Talk" buying a Kubota is worth the web group

Post Re: Kubota vs: Bob Cat

Well no one would say anything on this so I went out and found out for myself. Compare a Kioti to a Kubota and you have a Bobcat. The Bobcat is a Kioti painted white. It is a better looking than a Kioti but every thing is made by Kioti and all the parts are the same.

I have always liked Bobcat skidsteers but I think Kubota has the tractor down pat. Better part availability, stronger service and a wider range of equipment that is proven tough and most important Bobcat doesn't have anything like Orange Tractor talk with Mr K. or Service Department Vic.

Long story short Kubota is the better of the Bobcat or Kioti in all I can see but it was fun looking over the compact market and testing driving other tractors.

I have considered leaving the dealership I'm working at and picking up a Kioti or Chinese tractor line but I don't think I could sell them knowing the dealer down the road (kubota) have a much superior product! Even considered Gray market sometimes but these new Kubota's are sooooooo nice! LOL

Sorry for being so late been working on my B6000 It was a Ct230 and 235 the sales rep showed me how they are made by the Kitoi folks. He was very good with all my questions and agrees that Kubota is the best one.....an Honest salesman...that threw me...LOL

Last I knew, Bobcat uses Kubota engines heavily in their skid steers and other equipment. I'm kind of surprised they didn't source out Kubota for their tractors too. maybe price was a selling point. I'd say stick to tried and true Kubota
