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!

Fingers Crossed!

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.
