So it appears Kubota is going to offer a replacement for the L2501, the new 2023 L2502 with much of the same features and amenities as the new L3302 and L3902.

I really like the improvements Kubota added to the L3302/L3902 so I’m very interested to see the pricing on the new L2502 tractor. I’m expecting it to be much pricier than the L2501.

I’ll probably head down to my dealer in the next couple weeks to let them know I’m interested and I want to see one when it arrives.

I think it's got some good changes, but not worth it to me to trade. Brakes on the left is cool except I never need to use them except to put the parking brake on. Btw, I live in MT on relatively steep property. That is, I never park my manual Mustang unless it is perpendicular to the slope even with E brake on. It wouldn't be much fun to collect it 1/4 mile down the hill. :D

I don't believe the other models had a big price jump. But other things are driving prices than just costs, so maybe.

The brakes on the left would be very useful for steering brakes. Which I never use, but in theory might one day. (My B2601 has brakes on the left). The floor mats would be worth it, but you can buy them and add them anyway.

IIRC Neil mentioned something related to the center hump being greatly diminished or smaller which should play well with any new floor mats.

The ergonomic changes are a welcome touch. The question I have is, are they keeping it mechanical?

The reason I'm eying the L2501 is the simplicity. And of course, the upgrade potential.

What do you mean by mechanical?

I think the engine is the same. The PTO clutch has moved to a switch, so it must not be mechanical any more. I think that's probably a good thing. And the transmission is of course whatever you buy - gear drive or HST. I'd get the HST personally.

I’m assuming the engine will remain mechanical and the same as the L2501. I’m looking forward to seeing this tractor when my dealer gets one in.
