Finally some Good news...after placing the order for my L2501DT on 5/17, Dealer emailed that they have the tractor on-site and assembled...so I went over to check it out today...
The Bad News...forklift damage from shipping to the Left fender...replacement parts ordered, which should be in early next week...so potential pick up of tractor maybe wed or thurs...It looked great, sans the Fender! Hour Meter showed 0.2 Hrs!

Pretty darned excited to finally get it home...will be cool to officially be an OTT Family member!

Anyone experience very long wait times on a new Kubota? I know, we are in a global supply shortage of seemingly everything.

I ordered a Grand L4060 on Feb 17th. It still has not arrived at the dealer. (supposedly due to arrive within the week). The salesman keeps telling me it is a lot of pieces, to be patient (tractor, BH, pallet forks). Seems like a really long wait, if it does stay on current schedule, it will be easily four months by the time they assemble and get it to me.

I priced the tractor through two dealers. They were within about a 1K of each other, so I went with the closer, smaller dealership. Wondering if a bigger dealer would get the tractor faster...

Thanks,
Sean

We are waiting for our little L4701HST, it's been 4 months now and all the dealer has as news is "past due"

After reading the posts here I believe I have discovered the problem! It's YOU guys, you keep ordering stuff which is why they are behind and why we are still waiting for our new L4701HST. So if you will all kindly hold up for a few months, that should speed up our own deliveries....

Thats right! Now how much you willing to pay for us to ease up on orders? :ROFLMAO:
Just kidding but I did try to bride 2 dealers to divert a tractor and a loader to my dealer. Didn't work.

They say that everything comes to those who wait, we just got notice that our new little L4701HST tractor has arrived and is being prepped for delivery!! Only been 5 months, but I sure will be glad to not have to use that huge old Massey Ferguson on the jobs way too little for it. The KX-040 we got lucky, someone got tired of waiting so only 60 days for it. Winter now, but we are ready for Spring now!! Yay!!

This morning I noticed 8 (?) tractors in crates at local dealership.

I think 4 were LX, and 4 were L's. Didn't see any loaders.

Just guessing all sold.

Hey, congratulations! I'm coming up on 5-months since I ordered our BX23s... so maybe, just maybe, it will get here this year... but I'm beginning to doubt it. I wonder if anybody on this forum, who ordered a BX23s back in July, has had it delivered? I spoke with my sales guy last week and he said Kubota hasn't even started building mine, yet.

It's currently that way with everything, it took six months for our new Tractor to arrive, but she finally did. Even construction, shortages of metal, we finally ended up with a different color combo. Only thing to do is wait.

Find another dealer. Got the "3-9 month" run around from several local dealers, called a larger one a little further away but still within driving distance, and had a machine to my spec in less than 2 weeks. They are out there.

I was at my local dealer the other day. Talked with the owner and he said that just about 100% of the tractors they have onsite (and that wasn't many) were sold. He said it has been easier to order and receive the actual tractors however, anything with hydraulics on it has been nearly impossible. Loaders and backhoes are extremely hard to come by because the tubing for the hydraulic cylinders is still in short supply.

Just got the phone call from my dealer.
The LX2610SU I ordered back in June has come in.
They have the loader and backhoe too.
Also everything else I ordered. Pallet forks, box blade and wheel spacers.
Hopefully it will be delivered this weekend.

I'm waiting for 3 different dealers to get some loaders for their B2301 and LXSU in stock. Told them I had to check them out with loaders. None.

Same boat here. Ordered an L4060HSTC with LA805 and full rear remotes. Tractor is on the lot, loader MIA, remote kits backordered until end of December. I can't even buy the damned thing until the loader arrives because they need the serial number for financing. I can wait on the remotes being installed, but without the loader, tractor is useless. Main reason I want this particular setup is so I can get pallet forks and rearrange a lot of my barn along with a lot of other projects during the winter while waiting for spring. I plan to use the tractor to do some hay work as well. I am hoping the FEL arrives before we get socked with snow, will be nice to clear snow without freezing my legs off. My Ass stays warm in the seat so can't really say freezing my ass off can I? LOL

Well, it sounds like you need yours for your livelihood, whereas I just need mine for home projects. My plan, like you though, also included snow removal. We just got a boatload of snow up here in The Black Hills and I can't get up my driveway... So, adding insult to the wait, I just called and ordered snow removal from the local after telling him that I'd be able to do my own from now on. Of course, I told him that back in July when I placed my tractor order and never dreamed it wouldn't be here by Christmas. Good luck... I hope you get yours soon.

Hang in there folks...crazy times. My dealer was able to find a LA1055 loader in 4 weeks. Remotes, 3rd function, and other things are backorder. He delivered the machine last week, then will come pick it up and get everything else installed once it comes in.
