I'm on the list at my Kubota dealer for a new XG850, sales person says around 2-3 weeks for the one I want. As far as accessories go I'm looking for the Sport Top, the Full Windshield, and the Rear Bumper to be added at delivery time, others accessories I can add later. My question is the Kubota full windshield, the Poly one work well and holdup against rock chips, small branches, etc., will it scratch easily when cleaning or is it pretty tough. My Kubota will have easy use, cleanup around the property, and visit the neighbors on down the road, for me it a TOY and not a work machine. Thanks for your responses.

I hope it serves you well.

I considered getting one of those, but recalls last year scared me away. And because of the recalls, dealers down here don't get inventory till mid June/ early July. The Kubota RTV520 was a hard pass, bed capacity was 440lbs and the turning radius sucked.

I'm now considering a basic mule 4010 now for $12k, in that particular model they still use the kawasaki motors in them, Japan made and the utvs are assembled in Merica.
