It took me about 1 year with my B2601 being used in a suburban setting. Mostly cutting grass. I just hopped off after an hour of mowing and leaf moving. Better than watching the Steelers I figure. Good times.

I put on 350hrs in 10 months. I better slow down, only hoping I can do 10,000hrs like one had recently.

I’ve had my tractor for 3 and a half years and just completed my 600 hour maintenance. It was delivered on May 6th, 2019. I did the 50 hour on July 13th, 2019. I use it year round, winter for snow blowing, and the rest of the time for everything else. With all the implements I have, I rarely go a week where it isn’t being used for something. Even when I’m sawing logs on my sawmill, it comes in handy for loading logs, and carrying lumber to my drying racks.

One of my neighbors has a 2014, L4701, and he changed his oil this summer at 160 hours. He does blow snow in the winter, but not much use in the summer. I think he changed the oil just because it sits for long periods.

Other projects have kept me pretty busy. Not quite to 50hrs. yet since March. I couldn’t have done many things without it so still well worth it.

I have a different outlook than many!
I am never striving to see how many hours I can pile on in a year.
I use my 2006 Kubota L48 TLB when I need it,..... and that is not often.
Like you, I also have a Ford (1920 FEL) to use.

At the current rate of 10/ month it will be Christmas. Although, I'm going to be burning the dead stuff I took out for that long. Lol. So the tractor may not see 50 by then.

Took almost a full year for mine, But then I did take it down to one of my Daughters to clean up brush and put in a driveway. That was almost 20 of the 53 hours on it now... It was delivered 12/10/21

A year with 20hours?? Not sure the cost of a tractor would be worth owning, insurance, maintaining, storing at that point.


I got about 250hrs between 2 machines and 1 rental just this year. I haven't even taken on any side jobs in a long while, I've been too busy.

Bought mine in August, 38 hours on it now. I should have 50 somewhere around Thanksgiving, depends on if I can get ahold of a grapple before then. If so, I'll hit 50 the first weekend I have it, lol.

Don’t worry about how many hours when, for many of us, owning a tractor is an expensive hobby, like sailing, or race cars, or big game hunting. i’ve never owned a new car, but yet I’m on my my second new tractor? Go figure!!!

12 years to hit 100 hrs, on my little massy. Don't worry about the hrs, use it when you need it, and keep it inside when you don't. My little tractor will last me my life time.

Bought 2006 L48 TLB in June of 2019 with 251 hours.
Now has 259 hours!
Why do I have it?
Because I can, ....and because at age 82 when I need to dig, or lift something (with hyd. thumb), it is there just waiting for me.
Like my MB sport model ......I enjoy looking at it too!
Best of all........ my boys can sell my exceptionally low hour L48TLB for WAY more than I paid for it, if they so choose!

have about 200 hours on mine and its 2+ years old (august 2020). I use it mostly for mowing, but also landscaping duties, an expensive wheel barrow and pasture maintenance.
