I love Kubota tractors and should have a parking spot at the local dealer considering how much time I spend over there. Every tractor on the lot is sold and only on display while the new owner figures out when they can take delivery. Today there was a brand new M7060 tractor out front and I got to sit inside it and get a good look.

I've had really good experiences with a BX25D for five years, an MX6000 HST for about a year and most recently an MX6000 HSTC. That said, they all pale in comparison to the mighty M7060. The difference in size between the MX6000 with a cab and the M7060 with a cab is substantial to the extent that it seems like a jump of several models rather than just one. The 7060 is too much tractor for my small little place and without question the MX6000s are just about perfect, but I sure would love to own an M7060 or bigger at some point in my life.

It does seem like you get 50% more tractor for 15% more cost. :ROFLMAO: As I said, the M7060 is too much tractor for my needs and the MX6000s are outstanding for completing numerous tasks on small acreages, but I look at that M7060 and the lust takes over. I hope the local dealer gets an M4 or M5 in at some point so that I can check those out.

I don't get weird!!! I am weird!!!😁
The ballast is a 3 point forklift with a concrete block on it. I get the blocks from my local concrete company. They make them for stackable walls for retaining and barriers. The come in whole and half size. The small ones (pictured) are around 1500lbs to 1800lbs. Most concrete companies make them with leftovers that come back from jobs in the mixer trucks. The great news is they are cheap!!! I pay $25-$35 each. I just put it on the forklift and strapped it on. I intend to weld some 2" x 1/4" flat metal straps to the forklift to make it permanent. My local concrete company will make them smaller for me if I need. The first one I got from them was way to heavy so I had the make a smaller one.

I forgot to add, I got the forklift attachment on Craigslist for $50. I also, since taking this picture, cut the ends off of the forks flush with the block.

This is a Canadian angle to buying a tractor when you are not or no longer a real farmer.

Canada has a 13% tax on everything unless you can prove most of your income is derived from farming.

However, if the tractor's pto HP is is equal to or greater than 60 you are presumed to be a farmer and pay no tax.

This allowed me to buy a M7040 when until then I was looking at smaller tractors as the tax was $5,200.
